Pimp My Blog

Posted by:

Since I use a Mac at home and host this site at work using IIS, I’ve been looking for a way to make blogging a little easier. Little did I realize what I was getting into. Turns out that I had to learn a wee bit about PHP and getting my server configured the right way to get it all to work. Then I needed a crash course in MySQL to get the database end of things ...

The Devil Made Me Do It

Posted by:

Had a chance to see The Exorcism of Emily Rose last Sunday night, which might not seem like a big deal—but when you have two small kids, going to a movie that doesn’t feature Barney or the Wiggles or some animatronic character from the depths of merchandising hell represents a watershed moment in your adult life.

I just heard from my editor, the wonderful Juliet Ulman, that she’s ready to start the editorial work on PRODIGAL. As I haven’t quite finished the first draft yet, I’ll be sending over the first 400 pages so she can do her thing while I’m wrapping up over the next few weeks.

I’m not a full-fledged member of the Cult of Mac, but I do have a Powerbook G4 that I really like, and bought an iPod way before the little device captured the cultural zeitgeist with its scroll wheel and tiny white earbuds. Call me a Mac fan, if you will–a guy who likes OS X better than Windoze XP, but wouldn’t chain you to a radiator and make you renounce Bill Gates and all his evil ways.

That said, ...
