Going Out of Town (FIRST Milwaukee Regional)

closeThis post was published 12 years 10 months 17 days ago. A number of changes have been made to the site since then, so please contact me if anything is broken or seems wrong.

As you all probably know by now, I am a member of the wonderful (am I biased?) Southwest High Robotics Team, whose website I designed. Well, we’re going to Milwaukee this afternoon, and we’ll be back late Saturday night (CDT, of course). It is quite interesting that the team captain hasn’t posted about the trip yet on the team blog… But I digress.

What that means for this site is that I’ll be publishing stuff I wrote yesterday (and this morning) and scheduled using that wonderful feature that Blogger’s still testing (and recently fixed [wait, not fixedyes, it’s fixed] a bug in). The posts came from ideas that have been sitting in my idea bin (actually a list in Remember The Milk) for a while but have been overshadowed by current events and updates from Google and others.

So there should be no time-sensitive posts made between today and Sunday, March 16. (If anything more than one post a day is published, someone’s hacked my account, which would really be a bummer.) I’ve done my best to make decent rants about things that Microsoft (for example) did in its software that I find annoying.

The only problem is that I’ve had less time to write because I’ve been trying to get ahead caught up in school before the trip. My next several posts might seem a bit thrown-together because of that, and I’m sorry for it. I should be back to my normal quality once things settle down. (I wrote two of the posts yesterday morning in about 45 minutes, which is usually about how long it takes to do one entry.)

If you’re also a member of a FIRST robotics team and will be going to the Milwaukee Regional this week, look for me, the guy in a purple shirt walking around with a small camera (I also do photography for the team). I don’t expect to find any readers there, but hey, who knows?

So enjoy the canned posts, and I’ll catch up on any news that happens next week. If I get the chance, I will try to post Twitter updates. Follow me on FriendFeed to get all my activity (including here, Twitter, YouTube, StumbleUpon, Digg, etc.) or on Twitter for just my tweets.


I am an avid technology and software user, in addition to being reasonably well-versed in CSS, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, Python, and (though it still scares me) Perl. Aside from my technological tendencies, I am also a theatre technician, sound designer, violinist, singer, and actor.
