I cannot believe she has put up with me for 18 years!

Today is our 18th wedding anniversary. I can hear all the gasps now. I know what you're about to say, "But Dan, you look way too young to have been married for 18 years." Yeah, well, it's a gift - good genes. Or maybe it's just the acne. We were...


WhatIWantMost: Errata II

Kyle Beyer appears to be working on an AJAX login control. If successful, and I'm sure he will be, it will be something that should be incorporated into WhatIWantMost.com. Dave Burke is taking the .netTiers torch and running with it. In this post...


Book Review: Google Analytics

I recently finished the book, Google Analytics by Mary E. Tyler and Jerri L. Ledford. Like a lot of more web-experienced reviewers have reported, dave.org.uk is one example, I was a little disappointed. That's not to say that it wasn't a good...


Play Up, Boise State Broncos!

Wow! Wow! What an amazing game the 2007 Tostito's Fiesta Bowl turned out to be. It was one of the best, if not the best, college football games that I have ever seen. How often do you get to see a successful Hook-n-Ladder play and a...

Windows Developer Power Tools in the wild!

Jim's post and picture explain it all. He looks like a happy man, doesn't he? I'll write some more about the book a bit later - like where you can go to meet a large bunch of people who contributed to it as well as the two authors.


Eric A. Duncan's MiXX PostIcon rocks!

If you're reading this post from my site rather than through RSS and you happened to come via the home page or some other post listing page then you may have seen the new post icons listed beside some of the post titles. How easy was it to do...


WhatIWantMost: Let's start coding, monkey!

I've been getting cards and letters from people I don't even know asking, "Hey, how about a status update on WIWM!". Being beholden (a recent addition to my vocab thanks to the illustrious Clark Marx) to you, my dear audience, I cannot refuse...
