It's been a busy couple of weeks, but I've managed to get a lot accomplished. At work, I'm still working with outside consultants for software configuration. The summer intern program ended this week, and it's a little strange to see that there's nothing very tangible to show for my summer. Because of the nature of this project, I haven't really "created" anything yet, while in each of my past summers I had written billions of lines of code by now.

Last weekend, I went to the Aerosmith / Kiss concert at the Nissan Pavilion (which is about ten miles down the road). The headliners were both good (I'd never seen either one live before), but the opening group, Saliva, was just horrible. It was interesting to see an older pot-bellied Gene Simmons trying to recreate his historical shtick, though I prefer Aerosmith to Kiss.

In other news, my sister is now engaged to her long-time boyfriend. They're both interested in the Veterinary program at Virginia Tech and are currently living in Christiansburg. Congratulations! Ellen also had a birthday on August 14. Mine is less than a month away!

On the musical side of life, I've contributed an easy arrangement of Mississippi Mud, commissioned for a brass quintet. Apparently some lady always requests it when they play at a particular nursing home. You can hear a MIDI of it here .

This afternoon, I finally got around to completing the Writings section of the Domain. There's no new material in it, but now all of your favourite sections from last year's web site are back in action. Of course, there's also a few new cat pictures to browse through on the Photos page. I modified quite a few files today, so if I've inadvertently broken something, please let me know.

Excuses guaranteed to work
They're more intelligent than we thought
Stupid people don't deserve to win the lottery
That's not why they were naked
Dead people bring down property values
