Buffalo Main Street Archway

That's would be the name of the lovely framed and matted black and white photo that my coworker(/friend?) Allan just delivered to me a short while ago.  I believe he's just trying to grease the code review wheels for his work, but hey I'm alright with that!  ;)

Allan is an avid (rabid?) photographer and you can see more of his work on his photoblog.  All I could say was "Wow, thank you Allan."

And here's a bad phone camera picture of it hanging on my office wall:

Hey, what goes on tonight
Say, it isn't alright
Why is everyone so uptight?

Never needed your social life
Needed nothing to survive
Never needed no crying minds
I've lived without it, an I'm doing fine
Why is everybody, everybody so, so, so, so, so uptight?

Lost Dog

Lost Dog

Feelings moaning, people phoning
Going home? Please.
Eating plastic meals on trays
Scrape your face on street pavement

Chasing planes of existence
Fee the dog, he's getting lonely
No one's there, scratching doors
Paws are bleeding, going crazy
Tears in his eyes, laying on the floor
This poor dog's about to die

Being told how, never sure now
Having trouble?  Playing for keeps.
What's the news then?  You will see.
Will it be long?  Keeping you guessing.
Won't you show me?  The animal's growing.
Magnetism showing
Are you changing?  To for the best.

Strange Individuals #2

Strange Individuals #2

Chase your screaming neighbor down the street with a bloody axe
Go to the courts, they ask "Is that a fact?"
You don't know the reasons why you act like that
Many questions if you're still intact
With this world
Strange, strange
Strange individual

Go Fly a Kite

It seems a number of people in Pakistan are out to prove they are not worthy of being in the gene pool.  One can only hope it was only other kite flyers that were taken out.  Hopefully this time the authorities will authorize a lengthening of the Basant festival to expedite those seeking elimination from the gene pool.

The Beer Launcher

Tired of getting up off the couch to fetch another cold one?  Well, problem solved my friend!

Finally! Yapter Development

So after clearing numerous other things off my plate and avoiding being derailed to work on, I've finally started work on the Yapter templating engine.  Nothing too exciting yet, but I have done the first round of code cleanup and internal documentation.  But before this sees the light of day I have a number things I'd like to do…
  • Fix the error reporting so it doesn't spew errors to the screen unless you want it too.
  • Debug and hopefully fix a couple of reported bugs.
  • Add the ability to parse included templates.  (Currently it only allows static content in includes.)
  • Build out the new project homepage.
  • Rewrite the tutorial/example/documentation.
  • Likely many other things I haven't thought of.
If there is something you would like to see happen with this project, a bug you know of, etc. please contact me and I'll add it to the TODO list.
