YouTube is to video as is to photo. I signed up for a free account and uploaded a couple of home movies of Emma. So far I really like it. The videos were available online just minutes after I uploaded them. I tried a few months ago and some of the videos I uploaded never showed up on the site. The others took days to show up and be available for download. But YouTube seems better. And it has tagging and some of the other social networking features like Flickr has. This could be a solution for a video podcat, too. Check out the my videos, subscribe to the feed if you like, and if you get your own account and upload some videos then let me know so I can add you as a friend.

On Saturday we went to Doug and Marilyn's wedding. It was a classy affair and we had a great time seeing friends from Truman. All of us agreed that these two make a great match. Congratulations, guys!

More vacation photos are up in the gallery. Also, while Tim and I were waiting for everyone else to show up for laser tag today, we played a few games of Makoto.

Vacation, part one

We drove from Adrian, MO, to Cottleville, MO, today. We're staying with our friends, Tim and Angie. We met their new son, Isaac. He's a cute little guy, and very tiny. I can barely remember when Emma was that small.


I've dreaded going to after all the trouble we've had in the last week and a half. I'm afraid I'll go to the site and we'll be having webhost problems again or something will be terribly broken. Things have been working somewhat better. We had houseguests this weekend. Kyle and Erika came to visit. We had a nice time going to the City Market in KC, visiting a comic shop and then having dinner with them and the Sears family.

Pictures of Isaac

Tim has posted some pictures of handsome young Isaac in his gallery.

Isaac Matthew Hudson

I'd like to congratulate two of my very good friends, Tim and Angie. Yesterday at 1:45 pm they had a son. Isaac Matthew Hudson. He was 7 pounds and some-odd ounces. Sorry, ladies, I don't remember the other stats. He says he'll post some pictures soon. Congrats, guys!

New photos

I've created a new photo album with pictures of the garden, the cat and Emma. You can see that my greens have gone to seed, but my tomato and cucumber plants are blooming. Also, check out Emma's new tattoo.

What I've been doing

book coverI've been spending a lot of time working on the B2evolution project lately. I upgraded to the newest version of it, then I had to reapply the hack I had made before. I'm working on rewriting it as a plugin that will be easier to install and will be able to survive upgrades like this. The project needed some help sifting through antispam reports and maintaining the central blacklist, so I volunteered to do that. And I submitted a skin to the skins repository. I have another one under development now. And I've been reading through my new book: Build Your Own Database Driven Website Using PHP and MySQL by Kevin Yank.

That's the boring, geeky stuff I've been up to. Yesterday morning Sara and I flew with Dad to an airport in Kansas. We ate breakfast at the restaurant at the airport with some of his pilot friends that meet there once a month (including Private Pilot Magazine writer Leroy Cook). The day before that I went with my sister to the Apple Store to help her pick out an iPod Mini. We got an FM transmitter for playing music in the car, but the quality was really terrible and we could hardly find a place on the dial that wasn't getting interference from other stations. I think we can come up with something better.
