Wax On Wax Off

They seem to be waxing or sanding the hardwood floors in the apartment directly beneath me two floors down. It’s not super loud, but I can hear it quiet clearly and it’s slightly annoying. Guess I should see if I can drown it out with some music or the Seahawks game.

I’ve been fairly busy lately because I’ve been working on a web related side project. When it’s closer to being ready for primetime I’ll elaborate.

Hard Drive, DeepLeap

The new drive seems to be cruising right along. I’ve got it partitioned up into four 4GB HFS+ drives, an 120MB soon to be Linux swap partition, and the remainder for the LinuxPPC installation. Of course, with just a couple more weeks until MacOS X beta arrives on the scene I may not get a whole lot of use out of it. We’ll see how it goes.

I found out today that internet startup company DeepLeap has folded. Even though I hadn’t used their service that much, I was sorry to hear that they’re closing up shop. I have a lot of admiration for people like the DeepLeap crew and the folks at Pyra. One thing I will say, I really like the approach Pyra is taking in regard to building their company. By that I mean that while they have a cool product in Blogger, they’re working with companies on a variety of other stuff simultaneously.
