Hauling Drywall for a Sore Body

Basement, Blog, Home

On a whim, Ellie and I bought a bunch of drywall. Sixty sheets of it to be precise. We also bought 22 boxes of laminate flooring and a sheet of melamine. We were running low on all of the above and felt like hauling drywall, melamine, and flooring into the basement would be fun. Just […]

Cheap, DIY Shop Walls to Protect from Disk Sander Dust

Basement, Blog, Home

I have a problem with dust. Not the type of dust that shows up on your shelves one day nor the type you write in. In my case, the dust is created by my disk sander in my shop and it coats everything uncovered in the basement. That's why I put together these cheap, DIY […]

Owning a Home – One Year In

Basement, Bathroom, Blog, Home, Kitchen, Outside

Has it really been a year since this whole process started? According to the closing documents, it has. It’s hard to believe Ellie and I have owned a home for a whole year now and we haven’t broken down in tears or buried ourselves in mountains of debt. I’d argue we aren’t even barely keeping […]

Homemade wood business card holder

Blog, Woodworking

Since I’ve joined the rat race many years ago, I’ve collected a mass of business cards from the different jobs I’ve held. For the longest time, they seemed like such a treat to see my name officially on a piece of paper to hand out to other people. To me, it was an extra sign […]

Free Antique Bench Grinder

Basement, Blog, Woodworking

Okay, I know I wrote about how I don’t think collecting trash is a great idea in my post last week about my DIY Chalkboard, but this week I have another story about someone else’s trash becoming my treasure. This time I came across a free antique bench grinder, and I knew I had to […]

Swing of things


Now that the semester has slowed down a bit once again, I feel somewhat relaxed. Or maybe it is the fact that I spent as little time as possible on my feet this weekend in order to let them rest for once. Or maybe it is because I just took 10 shots of vodka (just […]

I believe I have the RSS working for the blog posts. This message is a notification and a test of the script. Here goes nothing.

As you may have noticed, commenting is now available for the blog posts. I hope this is used as intended and there is no spam to be had. Though if there is, I can always enhance it to avoid spam and pointless talk. I also have built in a way for me to delete comments […]

Turns out buffers can come in handy. My current comic buffer runs out on Wednesday. Which is timed perfectly with the end of my exams and papers due for this time of the semester. I have been so swamped lately that I have not had any time to draw more comics. I had one from […]

I have not had as much time lately as I would have liked to work on the site, though I am slowly progessing through my tasks. Time is better spent at the moment catching up on my vast amounts of reading for class. Supposedly if I do well on things called exams I will, in […]

Making the move


Just thought I would let you know that the comics are now being updated every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I have multiple reasons for making the change. First, with updating only twice a week I had a buffer of four weeks. Second, this relates to the first, I like to be able to relate my […]

Change we can believe in


I saw Senator Obama speak last night, it was moving. He talks of great change, not coming solely from him but from the people. He knows that things do not happen over night, but he knows that anything is possible in time. He emphasizes his own past when he speaks. How he started with nothing […]

My bad, changes to come


First off, I want to apologize for the comic not being updated like it should have. It should update automatically at midnight eastern time. But there was a little problem with my code that didn’t add the comics for me. It has been fixed and it shouldn’t happen again. Secondly, I want everyone to know […]

Oh yeah


I apologize, I am working on cleaning up some code which I could do on my local environment but at the same time I am trying to make sure that my hosted site works well with any strain I put it under. Hope that makes sense. So now that I finished the homework I am […]
