July 24th, 2006 Hot and busy

Appologies for the lack of posting lately. And a big fat “F.U.” to comment spammers. Anyhow the spam has finally got me to upgrade to WordPress 2.x (from my measly 1.2x). I’ve been really busy with the move, and with building the room. It’s coming along nicely. See below for some photos! The temperatures for the last several days have been 90-105 and HUMID (read: miserable) so working in the cool basment has it’s benefits.

Also been busy trying to get things off the ground with the waterski club. Recruiting at IntroDUCKtion, and trying to get people to do things they say they’re going to do. Still working on getting a boat, so if you have a nice one you don’t need, you could make a tax-deductable donation to the U of O Waterski Club (wink wink, nudge nudge…)!

With upgrading to anything above WordPress 1.5 comes the need for a new layout. I didn’t feel like coding my own from scratch because it’s a bit of a beastly project and I’ve got a couple other projects I’m kicking around.

Yadda yadda yadda… Hopefully once the dust settles in the basement, I’ll return to blogging a little more regularly.

Click the proceeding link to see the photos from the basement. Starting from “the before”, some various lighting/wiring shots, and through Friday night. Got bunch more done Saturday with John, did a bunch more done last night, and have plans to do the same tonight. I’ll update this post when I post more pics.

[Update: we got the rest of the drywall up and mudded in the main part of the room. Some pieces to go on the other end to even things out, and more coats of mud to go, but we should be ready for paint by the weekend!]
