Our Wedding: Updates are on their way…

As many people already know, Lauren and I were married this past July 4th. It was quite an amazing experience that I will cherish and remember for the rest of my life! I fully intend to put pictures up and write more about it soon, but have had little time recently to organize everything and write a good, long blog post about it. It’s coming… I’ll not forget to fill everyone who couldn’t be there in on the festivities… it’ll just have to wait a few more days.

What the hell is wrong here?

Leave of Absense

Well, both my website and my Flickr pages have been noticeably quiet for a while. My only excuses are that I’ve been trying to keep my computer turned off more often (in an attempt to save power and be more green) and I’ve been trying to get back into my old habit of voraciously reading anything I can get my hands on. At last count, I’ve read 5 books in the last month and a half and am in the middle of 3 other books as I type this.

In the void, Lauren’s mom stopped out to visit for a week and Lauren and I also took a trip back east to visit my parents for both vacation and to get more wedding plans set in stone. Lauren toured the campus with her mother and I took a few days off to show her Mt. Lemmon and the Desert Museum. The trip back east was great; we spend a lot of time at their lake house and did everything from visit relatives, to hike at the local waterfall, to just relaxing. We went to take some July pictures of the wedding location to get ideas for next year and, at one point, Lauren took my sister dress shopping.

I’ll be posting tons of pictures to Flickr soon, so be on the look out for pictures of anything from our kittens, to a trip to the Sonoran Desert Museum, to my poor attempts at catching star streaks, to me playing with some new macro filters for my camera, to the Bushkill falls hike.

I’m hopping to get better about actively blogging at least once a week… we’ll see how that works out.

Webhost swap completed

Well, it is finally 100% complete that I’ve moved from my old web host to some space under my buddy AJ’s hosting account at I transfered all of my web content and email information a number of weeks back and the the fax order to cancel service with my old account went through a few days ago.

The impetus for moving was a history of low service quality, months of service outages, and a shoddy backup system that left me with segments of my data (mostly email content) corrupted numerous times over the course of three years. I guess that’s what you get when you go with a webhost that is named after the cost of your service plan. I’m not going to name then so as to not give them any free PR, but I’ll tell you that it only cost me four bucks a month for hosting.

Anyway, the move went off without a hitch and I haven’t had any issues with the new host yet.

My new brother…

So, I got a call yesterday telling me that I’m a new brother…
