so after some time of tweaking and re-tweaking, my wiki has stabilized to the place it is today. it's practically impossible, given the subject matter (adventure racing) and the targeted audience (people who spend a lot of time outdoors) to get those people to write anything, so I end up writing the content myself.
One of the pages actually got vandalized by a casino-based site. I was actually proud of my little wiki, it's reached a level at which people want to vandalize it!
so here I am, re-evaluating my decision to encapsulate my photo galleries into a JSP tag library. the hosting provider that I work with can do JSP, but the tomcat server isn't configured right, and everytime I upload a change to any JSP file, it kills the ability to serve JSP content... so I'm slowly heading toward the php horizon, 70% of my pages are now php, soon, I'll have the MySQL and php logic hammered out to display the galleries more effectively.
that's all for now. today is my wedding anniversary from last year! everything is great, she's the best, and we're planning on making to year two at least! ;)

later everyone. -brandon

wiki work

so I've been working on a wiki...

since the last time I wrote here I've remarried, re-invented myself, and have been really enjoying life with a new sense of freedom.

anyway, back to the wiki. from what I can see, it has huge potential to change the way the internet is used and structured.

which is why i've decided to run YAWS (yet another wiki site).

it's an experiment really, one that will help me define what works and what doesn't. you know... a venture in learning something. squeezing some new drops of juice from the lemon, so to speak...

ultimate frisbee and mechanical translation

met a computational linguist last nite. mechanical translation. apparently he is one of 40 people in the world that does this kind-of thing. he's a great ultimate frisbee player. fast. he's looking for the holy grail of all human languages. the base-language that when translated into mathematics, supplies a common ground for connecting all languages, be it japanese-to-icelandic, or english-to-swahili, to-whatever. very interesting conversation. I wonder what that base language would sound like....

glory days of the unaffective

ok, maybe it's just me. maybe i feel like my contributions to society need to have more impact than a nice font choice for a product that promotes paranoia. web app development aside, it's time to reeavaluate.

any jobs out there with meaning? that give back just as much as you put in -- maybe more? i know they're out there. i am being lazy.

i have decided that I need to feel like i am contributing to something. so i have decided to contribute a diary entry. so there. done.

back to work!

dungeon siege
well guitar was absorbing most of my free- time/thoughts/concerns until Dungeon Siege came along. That game is slightly addicting. It wasn't until a 4am displayed on the clock, that I considered I might be in trouble. Fortunately for me my installation has a corrupt file that needs to be reinstalled. I am not bothering to fix it at this time.

so back to music.

jsp, servlets
wondering if there are people in the advogato community that use JSP, write servlets and stuff. doing that at work with minimal guidance short of a couple Wrox texts. it's pretty fun, but i'm not sure that I'm building my apps in the most efficient manner possible.
