New in Nostalgia
I'm going through old family files and the like for a few weeks. Today I ran across a couple of postcards of Downtown Dallas featuring Reunion Tower:

Updated Tech Museum
As I've been cleaning and going through things, I've been taking pictures and adding items to our Tech Museum. While I was at it, I did a little work on the presentation. It's still a tad clunky, but better than it had been. I've also added

ConDFW Wrap-up, plus bonus housekeeping!

But I did sit down and f

Monday Mumblings Has A Site Update
I took a few hours yesterday to update the Post Cards section of the Nostalgia area. 

I really needed to clear my brain after one project and before digging into another. Not to mention th

The Clean(ish) Desk
Okay, I'll admit it: I'll never have one of those lovely, minimalist desks with acres of space and nearly empty walls. That's not the way I work.

Moar Housekeeping!
And an excuse to pull a cat photo from the archives.


Snoozing. This is what I plan to do soon if this post makes it out to the intertubes.
