UPDATE: As an aside, it would probably be more accurate to say the

I finally got around to uploading pics of our short Seattle

BillG᾿s immense house.
In Decemember I wrote about a great soccer

Univision and had a camera man in tow taking footage during the camp.
I’m posting this more as a reminder for myself. Where exactly are you
supposed to place XSD files to give you intellisense for XML files in
The wife and I are
headed up to Seattle for President’s day weekend to visit some friends.
My feed looks like several items were reposted. This is due to a bug in
Subtext when editing an existing post using Windows Live Writer. In any
case, we’ll have a fix available in the next release of Subtext soon.
I received a call from a nice lady asking to speak to someone who could
confirm an employment at VelocIT.
