John McCain came to campus this morning for a Town Meeting less than a block from my building. Unfortunately I had to work during the whole thing, but I did catch a couple minutes of the televised coverage. It was interesting to see the effects of three or four hundred more people than usual converging on the COG.
Looks like I was born in the year of the sound bite.
This David K. Every column over at MacWeek has an interesting comparison of the value of Apple stock vs. Dell stock. 2000 is going to be a fascinating year for Apple with everything they’ve got in the works.
I’ve been working on Filemaker Pro here at work quite a bit in the last few months. Its simplicity and ease of use makes it well suited for various record keeping tasks we have here in the Gonzaga School of Education. There are definitely times when I wish working with it was a little bit more like traditional programming, but overall I’m quite satisfied with it.
It snowed just enough last night to make the morning drive to work a little bit dicey. Thankfully I only live 10 minutes away (under normal conditions of course). I decided to take the freeway thinking it might be a little more clear than the side streets, but the exit ramp ended up being a bigger mess than I anticipated.
REALbasic is definitely a nifty development tool for the Macintosh. I’ve been playing with it off and on since it was first introduced, but I hadn’t worked with version 2.0 until today. Cool stuff!
I may have to pick up Matt Neuberg’s new book.
It’s finally raining here in Spokane after a very dry September and October. Image courtesy The Weather Channel.
Of course at work today I had to haul a printer all the way across campus and then back again in the rain. And it especially figures since I just washed my car for the first time in ages on Saturday. Ahh well. I love rain.
Still no bike. Sigh
I got to sit by Father Spitzer, the Gonzaga University President, at lunch today. He’s a pretty friendly, high energy kind of guy. He also has a definite geeky quality about him, which is both endearing and disconcerting when you consider who he is.
Breanna and Kellie came to visit Dale at lunchtime, so I got my weekly dose of Veggie Tales. Breanna is definitely a little jumping bean these days.
