Hoops Update

Yesterday’s basketball game: Ferris 58, Rogers 44

Yesterday’s big upset: Shadle Park 55, Gonzaga Prep 54

That puts Ferris all alone in second place behind Central Valley.

I picked up my family's new iMac today!

Geek Guys

Ferris plays Rogers today in what should be a pretty good basketball game at Ferris.

I came across this link [Internet Archive] at BunnyHop while perusing scripting news today and thought Nichole might find it useful.

New iMac for My Parents

Today wasn't overly eventful. I helped my dad order a new blueberry iMac. That and I lugged my parents old couch downstairs. Ugh!

Superbowl

I have not worked on my site here much at all this weekend. Sorry Nichole. Of course once she gets her’s going I’m going to give her a hard time too.

Find the answer to your questions here.

Watching the Super Bowl was kind of interesting this year. I went over to Dale’s house. His daughter Breanna ended up being more entertaining then the game for me.

Improving the Site…

I’ve been doing a variety of research on things I can do to improve my site at Script Meridian and webmonkey.

I went to The Thin Red Line with my mom and sister tonight. It was good.

Opponent: Mt. Spokane

I survived my visit up north to Mt Spokane high school. The JV team is still not playing at the level we’d like. Of course they did win by 30 points…

I picked up a new green mechanical pencil called the Technician II between games. It works quite well.

Hats off to Mt Spokane for their play in the varsity game. They played even with the Ferris varsity up until the last 3 or 4 minutes of the game and ended up losing by a surprising 4 points.

Tuesday we play Rogers and on a related note I just watched my first tv news sports low-light of the year. Rogers was playing LC in a close matchup and Q6 was showing some shots from the game. Then right in the middle of the piece a Rogers player travelled as he started to drive and they wasted a couple seconds worth of tv time on his meaningless layup following the turnover. Even worse they added insult to injury by making a stupid comment about the whole thing. I really think we could have done without that bit.

Zags Hoops

Just got back from the Zags game.

GU ended up winning by about 20. As usual I saw many people I know and work with including Mitzi.

Tomorrow Ferris plays Mt. Spokane way out north.

What Is a Weblog

Today I discovered that Axodys is actually a weblog.

More weblogs: Camworld, Hack the Planet, and Memepool.

Carmen (Nichole) is of course on my case to get my site here improved. She is of course right. I need to keep plugging away. Perhaps someday Axodys will approach the stature of the numerous spiffy weblogs out there.

Thanks to my recent acquisition of a new 128MB dimm my iMac is now happily cruising along at 160MB!

CV Rematch

Today the Ferris varsity boys basketball team plays their biggest game of the season to date when they face Central Valley on the road for a share of first place in the GSL. Our only loss of the season was at the hands of CV on our home court back in December and there is no question the team has been looking forward to this rematch every day since.

Update:

Well, the basketball games didn’t turn out quite like I was hoping. The Ferris JV team started out the day by playing the worst 20 minutes of basketball I’ve seen this season. Luckily there are 32 minutes in a complete game. With 4 minutes remaining in the third quarter we were down 19 points, yet somehow thanks to inspired team defense and six 3’s by Kevin “The Trifecta” Aronson we managed to get it turned around and win by 5.

The varsity game on the other hand was a closely contested battle between two good teams that ended with a two point margin of victory and us on the losing side. Central Valley may have secured the league title with tonight’s victory, but they haven’t seen the last of Ferris by any means.

Learning HTML

I just figured out how to make my links much cooler. Thanks Netweasel! Well, back to work I go.

After getting back to work and finding out more about Cascading Style Sheets at webmonkey.com I’ve come to the conclusion that they are way cool!.
