Well, a stupid head crash on the hard drive on my server has caused me to lose all the source pages and stuff for my web site.  So I've taken advantage of the time to clean up some things.  I'll also be putting in some new servers before I head off to college.  Stay tuned.

No updates since Christmas?  No, I've been busy working on the site.  Just too busy to document all the changes.  Lol.  Come to think of it, I've also forgotten them all.  Mainly I'm posting this what's new post tonight, because I'm getting sick and tired of seeing that Merry Christmas thing on there on top of all the news.  Lol.  Ok, I'm done filling space now.

A few days, and 4 blown fuses later, the UPS is installed and working.  Now when all the power goes out this winter, due to frozen power lines and trees, will still be up and running.  [Assuming a big tree doesn't come crashing through the roof.]
I also fixed that stupid t-shirt graphic today, 'cause the old one was making me sick.

Wednesday, November 27, 2002
Removed the free web hosting category from the site, by request of my ISP.  
Added yet more junk to the t-shirt shop.  
Note: will be down on Thanksgiving Day sometime in the afternoon for a couple of minutes while I install my new UPS rig up.  [Yes, it's powered by a car battery, and held together with duct tape.]

Monday, November 25, 2002
Added 4 new servers!  All running Freesco.  Now there's tons of more space for everybody that wants their sites hosted.  Contact me for ad-free, free web hosting today!

Fixed some stuff on the tagboard so it looks a bit better.  Also added a refresh button, and a link to add it to your desktop.
Added a ton of junk to the t-shirt shop.  Even a BBQ Apron!
Added a large amount of music to the music section.  My demo CD is now available online as well.

A major site update is in the works.  I just got some more bandwidth and a new server, sorry about the downtime.  

Friday, May 03, 2002
Wow, it's been awhile since I've had a chance to do some updating.  You'll notice I'm now offering no-ad, free web space for anybody who wants it.  Check it out, it's cool.  I know I've promised this a lot, but you'll be seeing much more content coming soon.  As soon as school lets up (11 days!) I'll be regularly planning time to commit to the site, and the general idealism and philosophy of this project.  If you're not sure what I'm rambling on about, by the end of the summer you will.

I've finally migrated to Linux.  It's nice.

Sunday, March 17, 2002
Uploaded some more music to the journal.

Tuesday, February 26, 2002
Got new nav bar.  The old one was getting too big.  Music journal section is up, and being regularly updated.  Be on the look out for more music!  I just finished 2 songs this weekend.

Tuesday, February 19, 2002
I got a new keyboard on Saturday.  This thing is awesome.  Now I'll be able to work on some more music.  Be sure to check out the music section.  Oh btw, I ordered a couple t-shirts, and they turned out really nice.   

Sunday, February 3, 2002
Ok, first off, I've updated the History of Hacking with some more links.  Be sure to check that out.  Second, I'm sure you've noticed the banner ads on the top of this page.  I have 2 months to make $35 to pay my internic fee.  The ad is small and out of the way, so it shouldn't slow you down from getting to the content on this site.  Also note, I REFUSE to put popup ads on my site.  I don't like those.  Anyway, I've dug around and found some sites that have some decent deals on computer stuff.  If you'd buy something from them, I'd greatly appreciate it.  Also, I'm open for donations  :-)  

Sunday, January 27, 2002
I got a new online radio system going.  As promised, it is up for good now.  If you're a band that wants your music played, or you wanna be a dj for awhile, please see the radio page.  

Thursday, January 17, 2002
FINALLY.  Added a new section after being sort of dormant for such a long time.  It's the History of Hacking, and it's in the computer section.  There's also a lot of other good tech history there.  Stuff everybody should know!  Check it out.

Sunday, January 6, 2002
All this week I've been fixing up little bugs here and there, adding stuff, etc.  My sad attempt at getting the webcam to refresh automatically failed, so I guess I need to look up some JavaScript.  I fixed the add bookmark link so it works from any page.  I've corrected all the spelling errors I could find.  There should be no broken links now.  Everything's back and working again!

Thursday, December 27, 2001
Ok, I've got the webcam up, the online radio station back up, updated a few networking articles, took down the Christmas decorations, changed a few other theme things around, moved some links around, added the official t-shirt, and started logging connections.  I didn't realize this site got more than 2 hits a day, but I guess it does.  Average of about 13 unique hits an hour.  Not bad for just a nobody in a basement with nothing better to do.  Thanks to everybody who has made this their primary source for info, and stuff like that!

Monday, December 24, 2001
I got my high speed microwave internet connection last Wednesday.  I decided to put my site up on my own server.  It should be awesome now.  More features, faster updates, etc.  Let me know what you think.  Be sure to checkout the online radio!

Sunday, December 2, 2001
I decided to throw a Christmas theme on the site, cause it's December already.  I haven't updated the site in awhile, I've been too busy with school.  There'll be a major update coming soon, with some software I've been working on.  Until then, e-mail me with suggestions, I could use 'em.  

Tuesday, October 23, 2001
Changed the layout of the site a bit.  Added a couple new songs to the music section.  Especially check out "Everyday Life", it's pretty good.  

Sunday, September 30, 2001
Everything is nuts right now, and I haven't had much time to do much of anything much less update my site.  So. . .  today I updated the FHS section, I've added some more music to the music section, but still no more new articles.  I'm working on it!

As you know, our country (USA) was attacked today by what is believed to be a terrorist group.  It makes me sick to think that such a pathetic, and cowardly group of individuals would purposefully and deliberately take the lives of others for an unknown cause.  

Currently, we've got a problem.  Thousands of people are dead, and countless injured.  There is a need for money, and blood, and that's where you come in.  I urge you to contact the red cross and make some sort of a donation.  People's lives depend on it.  Donate to a good cause, you'd want someone to do it for you.

Red Cross Contact Information:

Donations:  1-800-HELP-NOW
To Give Blood:  1-800-GIVE-LIFE

Well, the boycott went pretty well, lots of supporters, but not enough.  Anyway, I'm cleaning up the site a bit, and correcting a few typos and stuff, other than that, I've been too busy with band to work on this, but I'll get it going again next week.

Friday, August 3rd, 2001
I've started a worldwide boycott against Microsoft, read the notice at the top for more info.

Friday, July 20th, 2001
Over a month, and no update.  Sorry, I've been busy building computers and getting organized, and messin' with my new P300, and some other stuff.  I ripped off the big annoying flash intro at the top of this home page, cause it took too long to load.  It was just there as a test anyway.  I'm going to be rapidly expanding my content on this site over the next 2 or 3 months.  Thanks to everybody for the suggestions.

Wednesday, June 13th, 2001
FINALLY, no more domain name ads.  The only ad bar left is the one from my stupid web host.  I searched for 6 hours today for an ad free one, and sorry to say, but it doesn't exist.  So, we're all gonna have to deal with the ads a little longer until I get cable internet.  Check out the music section, I've added 3 more songs.  Message board is up and running.  I've added the sub-domain if you need a quick way to get to the music section.  I'll be changing web hosts over the next few days to minimize the ads.  The address won't change, but the ads will.  Just make sure if you bookmark my site, to bookmark it as

Friday, June 1st, 2001
I've got around to writing a couple of more songs in the last few days, and I've posted them on the music page.  Check it out.  [Caution:  Some of that bass is subsonic, and may damage your speakers if you've got it up too loud, so be careful!]

Monday, May 28th, 2001
I decided to build an MP3 Player for my car, and I uploaded the plans for anyone to use, if you want them.  It's in the computer section.  (Now all I need is a car)

Thursday May 17th, 2001
Lately I've been recording and composing a bunch of music, all of which I have uploaded at  So, figuring that people here might want to know how to get to the awesome techno there, I made a link on the main nav bar called Music.  So, if you're looking for music, click on music.  (Even if your not looking for music, click on music anyway!  lol)

Tuesday April 17th, 2001
After several comments and suggestions, I've been working on adding more to the site.   Check out the new stuff!
