I'm trying to break out into freelancing... might as well parlay my database-enabled web development and graphic design experience into something. I took over the domain name of my former employer, QwsiNet. I'm based in the Boston, Massachusetts area, in case anyone is reading :-)

I've got a new Logitech wireless keyboard, and I must say it's a real boost being able to type while sitting back in the chair with my feet up. Typing feels easier. I also have begun to realize that for one reason or another, I over-rely on the fingers of the right hand to type quickly. My left hand is not nearly as capable at fast sequencing of key presses. Got to work on that.

I had an epiphany with GNU Octal. I had been banging my head against the wall trying to solve a bunch of unrelated problems, and nailed them all with a single pattern. Coming Soon to the web; got to create a test implementation first, then I'll write it up in official GoF Pattern Form.
