Buh-bye AOL

Let's see, we've got horrible customer service and slow connections, so let's fire all of our tech support.

A moment of silence...

I'm afraid that things have come to a head between my dad and I. I must have pushed him too far on the sushi scenarios (you'll never get me to admit I don't like it Dad). I think he's finally snapped, and in an effort to get back at me, he sent this email this morning

Not my usual fare

Got to work on a couple of sites that aren't my usual fare. They're both rap fan sites, one for Puff Daddy (what a goofy name) and another for Eminem, who I actually have a lot of respect for as a lyricist. I wouldn't want him watching my kids (if I had any) but I think he's hilarious and has a wicked wit.
