Peter Palmer

Here's a picture of my dad from when he was about my age. He was a pretty cool frood, even if I didn't understand that until it was too late.

The Return of Friday Cat Blogging


It's been a while, but now that the Nest Thermostat has shipped, I've got a little more time to sweep out the cobwebs.

Cryptic Lifemarking

In place of the shower — Led Zepplin II. In place of the soap - a chunk of prototype on a scroll saw. Today was a good day. =^_^=

Links Fixed

Finally had the time to look closely at why a bunch of the links in the previous post were messed up. For some reason an invisible character had been introduced before the "http" in the URL, and that caused me to pre-pend my URL. Oh well...

The Permalinks are still messed up as well, I still haven't done the 2010/2011 rollover on the site, just in time to roll again to 2012. Sigh.
