Site Update

Posted on May 20, 2005 at 01:44 AM

Notice something different? Yes, I've updated the layout and content of this site a bit. One thing some of you will notice is that I put the date and time of each post directly under the post's title. This is so my wife doesn't have to hunt for what time I came to bed.

A few other things I've added:

People - This is a section for people I know with blogs. If you know me (and your blog doesn't suck) let me know and I will add you to the list. How do you know if your blog doesn't suck? Well, if you have to ask then....

David Kadavy - co-worker/friend/kitchen pass antagonist

Lisa (Maltarich) Park - an old high school friend whose blog I just recently found. She is married and living in Dallas, Texas and writes about cooking lessons, her garden, and life in general.

Jamie Hiner is the former head of the Omaha web design meetup group. I say former because just started charging $19 a month per meetup group to maintain a presence on's site. Seeing that there were 3 of us at the last meeting, I can understand that coming up with the cash just to sit around and B.S. isn't really plausible.

He also develops some really cool software called GrowthTrak. And I've heard through the grapevine he is conjuring up some dashboard widgets for the Mac as well.

Rollin' - added a few new sites to my blog roll, got rid of some that I don't read anymore.

Guilty Pleasures - These are blogs some people won't admit to reading but are quite enjoyable nonetheless. Hence the name guilty pleasures.

Various Reading, Listening, Watching lists - In order to combat my acute blogfluenza, I've recently picked up a few new books. I also plan on stopping by the next Swanson Library Book Sale to see if I can pick up some classics I've been wanting to read.

All the links in the lists are to, so if you see something you like you can pick it up.

Worth mentioning: the legal department is down with The Killers so you know it's good.

I've also added a new feature called Gadget of the Week. By no means is this any type of advertising and I'm not getting paid for this (although it would be nice). It's just that I sometimes find unique gadgets and thought I would share them with you. I'm not too sure on the title "Gadget of The Week" but it will remain for now. This weeks Scrolling LED belt buckle is a doozy. But for $30 how can you go wrong? Feel free to submit any gadgets you find by sending me an email.

Lastly, I've added sidebars to my archive pages. I found that when you read the archives without sidebars the sentences tend to get really long and hard to follow. Plus if you want to bail, you have a few more options to click on.

I was going to add a section for Omaha blogs but, seeing that I've already listed the only two Omaha blogs I read, it was kind of a moot point. There is one other Omaha based blog I read, but it will not be making a list on this site unless I create a trainwreck category. You bet.

I like the new look of the site. You forgot to add 2 Weeks Notice and the Notebook to your "watching" section (wishful thinking). I would be interested to see a train wreck category on your blog. Don't put "you bet" on your blog anymore... I am not married to a tool :)

love, love,
