Added a section to the favorite games page about games I want to like, but, for one reason or another, do not really like.
One way to keep from losing your mind while spending 18 months writing two tech books in a row is to play games whenever you can. I made a page about some of my favorite board and card games.
Much has happened. See the blog for the blow-by-blow.
At some point I upgraded the machine's Perl to version 5.8 and in so doing broke a lot of the legacy toys yet again. Mumble.
Added a link on the Perl & XML page to coauthor Erik Ray's website.
Added some links to the writings page, including a Mac column I got published on the O'Reilly Network, and a report of a movie marathon I attended last month.
Stopped noting the year on individual entries for this page, since I've clearly adopted a one-page-per-year system.
I've quietly relaunched jmac.org today. The website has been more or less frozen since I lost my job last fall, but I've started to do interesting things again.
Most of the the changes are organizational. New material includes:
I've also dumped four months' worth of weblog entries from another site into the jmac Weblog, all at once. Cleanup to follow.
The site is still pretty darn visually plain, yes. There's quite a lot more I'd like to add, in both content and design. The urge to update, however, beat out the desire to wait until I was "finished".
