ex machina

after months of ignoring signs of impending hard drive failure, i decided it was time to get a new drive and squeeze a few more months out of my aging dual boot wintel/linux box. of course, i don't back anything up. smart. really, really smart. it's funny - i'd almost forgotten that slight tingly sensation that comes about when you do something silly like hose the master boot record. and with a cavalier attitude, you think that the fact that the computer won't boot is no big deal, until you try a few quick fixes. and are still stymied. and then the tingly sensation turns to fear. fear that you're not cavalier. no, it's pretty clear that you're just stupid. and then the sweating starts. but, haha! i fixed everything and am now typing from a machine which is so rejuvinated that i'd say it's down right peppy. so, maybe i'm cavalier after all....or not. hi. ho.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
