Tech Support Woes

There are many unfortunates out there who have been “cutting the ends of the brisket off”1 for so long that they never asked why.

1 This refers to an old story where a new bride asks why her husband always cut the ends off brisket before cooking. The husband says that his family has always done it this way. Eventually the bride asks her mother in law why, and her mother-in-law says that her mother always did it that way, so she kept up the tradition. So, the confused young bride goes to the hospital bed of her Grandma-in-law and asks, Grandma, why do you cut the ends off of the brisket? To which the Grandma replies, ”The pan was always a little too small”

It’s been a while since I made a personal update to the site and now I have made a new layout, locked out all the old user accounts and chnaged the whole site again, ain’t I a stinker?

The main reasoning behind the change is my need to flex my php and css muscles. While PHPnuke and PostNuke allow for flexable and attractive layouts, nothing says home made like a jabberwocky placed using an absolute tag in CSS. Yes, I used Adobe GoLive to get the site together. Yes, I use it for laying some stuff out. A wysiwyg editor for CSS layouts is a godsend for big stuff like text boxes, etc, but the graphics, etc, are laid out by hand in vi. So there.

If you haven’t yet, I suggest you check out Donnie Darko, quite a nice movie.
