I’m going to be a dad.
Other declaratives of a more expletive nature come to mind, but I try and keep Nuketown somewhat PG-13.
And besides, I need to watch my language. I’m going to be a dad.
I still can’t get over it. I’m writing this two days after it was official. My wife and I had our suspicions – there are certain signs and portents (such as a late period, breast soreness, visiting our friends who have a baby and finding the name “Jacob” carved into a bench when we stopped to change her) – but we didn’t know until Sunday (7/21).
SimCity returns with SimCity 4, but have the designers scrubbed the noxious Big Government stains left by its predecessor, SimCity 3000?

I know I wouldn’t want my kids playing it, but as parent, I’d make *sure* my kids weren’t playing it. Not just as my house, but at their friends houses as well. Because hell, that’s what parents do.
A good friend of mine is getting married on Sunday. He and his wife-to-be are registered as Sears, and I need to know what's left on the registry. So being the techno-geek I am, I figured I'd jump on to the Sears web site and see what my friends would like.
Why deep linking is a good thing -- and why corporations who fight it are idiots.
The net's a big place. Watson helps make it smaller. Produced by a California-based company called Karelia, Waston is a sort of specialized search engine for the Mac OS X operating system that offers 16 tools designed to provide a simpler, more productive interface for the immense treasure trove (and accompanying wasteland) that is the Internet.
Nuketown's new search engine gives folks the ability to search through all of the ol'thermonuclear burg's sections.
iDisk is Apple's net-based disk drive that's mountable to any Mac, and accessible from any computer running Windows 98 or better or Unix. And it rules.
