Welcome Classmates Visitors!

Hi all.
All 3 of you! heh. Well, I hope that there will be more than 3...
Thanks for searching for me. You most likely have found this page by virtue of a google search spurred by some breadcrumbs I left at classmates.paymealot of I am interested to know how your search went. I hope you understood right off about googling for me. I tried using a url in my comment of the picture at classmates, but they blocked it as being in violation of the tos. Who reads those things anyway? We'll see if this method actually works. I'm sure I can't be the 1st one to do this, although I may be the 1st from Lancaster High School, et al to do it!
Leave a comment here to let me know who you are. (hints are acceptable, btw) or link to my classmates blog, over here:

Wow, i didn't realize it had been that long!

yeah, it's been a while, and now i remember why. it's this disgusting klunky web interface. (and also, i can't help using this resource hogging safari). I'll be moving over to my DotMac site, i suppose, so i kin use a client based entry method. I actually have posted to the web recently, just not here. check my DotMac site for current and future developements

Trip to the Henry Ford

I dunno why they call it "the" Henry Ford. I thought it was "Henry Ford Museum" A museum by any other name would smell as sweet... (smells good by the locomotives tho!)
The littleVulcan and I went with S.L.A.S.H. to the museum today. I just finished Photoshopping the red eye outta all those kids heads (eyes, actually), so I figured that I would post some pics.

Here stands the littleVulcan before the great Allegheny locomotive, a humongus 2-6-6-6 and yes, that is the correct spelling, (for those of you reading from Western New York.)

Here's the whole gang (almost) standing on the wing of a biplane while doing stunts in front of a fair somewhere in America. (there was a video projected on a screen in front of and below them to provide the sensation of flying.)

The boy begged me to take his pic next to this huge traction engine. He even posed himself. How cool is that?

A couple of music fans listening to "Rock-N-Roll", I believe they called it... Kids these days and their "8 track tapes" eh?

Sunday Night Linkorama

So, I've been feeling like I have been depriving my loyal readers of one of bloggings mainstays. I'm talking about linkage, yes linkage with a capital "L", right here in... wait, where did that Music Man reference come from. Moving right along, here is the linkaliscious goodness:

First, did ya know about the web apps movement. If you aren't even half the vulcan that I am, you probably do not
here's a link anyway

Next, speaking of webapps, and we were, you know. An online file converter!
You say "so?" (with raised eyebrows, no doubt) (admit it, they raised, didn't they?) I have a number of fine file conversion utilities, GraphicConverter being a really nice one, being another. Hey, when you work with good tools, you can do great things, what can I say? Well, I had been looking for ages, ages I tell you for a way (a good one) (that means free ;-) ) to convert .wmv files to .mov or some other modern, workable format. has a wonderful converter. worked great, no need to enter email address or anything. In fact, it worked as well as:
TinyURL which is something that many of you need to learn about (seeing as how you refuse to use html email, etc.

Here's something that could either be a travesty, or reuse/recycling. There are many accessories out there for our various paraphanalia for our "digital life" (whatever that is) but this one caught my attention:
Old 45 records

Speaking of digital life, you have by now all heard about the iPhone. The greatest thing since sonograms? Who'd a thought someone would have a blog about it?
iPhone blog

My kids already have them by the way
