Watch out for the Cobbler 2000
Watch out for the Cobbler Watchers!
Please, somebody tell me they 2000
Please, somebody tell me they were able to tape the film production of Gormenghast. Such a brilliant book! O, and Christopher Lee as Flay! I need to see this. Yes, yes. (Thanks to Phil for originally recommending it to me, and Heather for telling me about it. I share your pain, my sister. And you bet I'll share the video if I ever track it down).
Hooray! It's finally Ev's birthday! 2000
Hooray! It's finally Ev's birthday! Spring has sprung! Dance in the streets! Hooray! Hooray! :)
Many happy returns of the day.

Jason is right; visual representations 2000
Alright, Paul, now you're just 2000
Alright, Paul, now you're just showing off. Bloody geniuses, think they know it all...
What is so cool about 2000
What is so cool about this picture? Why does it make me say again "pb is an image god!"? How can the inside of a Muni car fill me with bittersweet longing? Maybe it's just R.E.M. singing "Everybody Hurts" in my ear. Maybe that's all it is, but that doesn't explain the odd happysad pang I felt when the image loaded.

Note to self: Add /usr/bin/girl 2000
Note to self: Add /usr/bin/girl : (a girl, a browser, and way too much spare time) : blurbs from the web to my frequently visited blog list. And think about reworking my Pals page to include spiffy banners like hers.
By the way, I am not lying (am not! are too! am NOT!) when I say I blog for myself. I do write for others to read, but I also use my weblog as a place to keep track of interesting findings (on the web & elsewhere) and my thoughts about them. I read my own weblog. And laugh at it. How cocky is that?
Finally! A post about web 2000
Finally! A post about web design documentation.I have a numbering scheme I use to describe the structure of a website. To allow for changes to the site structure without requiring renumbering items, I use a number/letter scheme which, when sorted alphanumerically, reflects the sequence in which you pass through the pages of a site. I would love to hear about more elegant schemes which meet the same need, but I haven't found any.
Here's how it works:
Take the first page of the site and call it A.
Thus, http://www.metagrrrl.com/ = A
Next number the possible paths out of this page and add each number to the current page identifier (A).
Thus, "MetaGrrrl" = A1 (just a page reload in this case), "Web Design" = A2 and "Eclectica" = A3. The Pals icon (that ball & arrows thang) = A9. The bonus picture under the big logo = A17.
Clicking the "Web Design" button (A2), we find that there are the same first 8 options (the navigation bar) plus options which we identify using letters:
A2A = "MetaGrrrl"
A2B = "Web Design"
A2C = "Eclectica"
and so on to
A2H = "Bookmarks"
A2I = large logo (now links back to the home page)
A2J = "MetaGrrrl Proposal..."
A2K = "Project Report"
And so on through the site. It allows us to make statements like A1A2A1A2=A1A2A1A1A1B1A1 which tightly describes how the same page can be reached via two different user experiences. (Note that this particular example is not from MetaGrrrl.com).
Why use letter/number/letter/number? Because it's easier to read (comparatively anyhow) and allows for pages with many, many paths (e.g. A12Q78AA6).
If you know a better way, please let me know! As ever, you can email me at this domain.
I guess you'll all be 2000
I guess you'll all be relieved to know that I'm not cut out for imploding sports arenas. *sigh* So much for career jumps. Back to project management for me.
Peter is my friend because 2000
Peter is my friend because he starts his posts with things like All the taxonomists in the house say, "Whoa!"
Legally, I cannot confirm riothero's 2000
Legally, I cannot confirm riothero's claims to sexiness. But I can approve of the spiky hair. And, dammit, I like his redesign.
"Holy shit. Another day. It's 2000
There is a reason Lane 2000
There is a reason Lane won an award for Monstro! His writing is excellent. This particular piece makes me want to go back and re-read Little, Big for all the wonderful philosophical scenes in The City.
Good idea, Brig, I want 2000
Add me to the applauding 2000
Add me to the applauding throng of fans of the new design over at powazek productions. Saaay, this guy is good.
Laughing until the tears ran 2000
I think this captures the 2000
I think this captures the sweet, refreshing buzz that is blogger very well.
Note: I don't drink beer, 2000
Note: I don't drink beer, though the fabulous Ben Brown ought to be able to convince anyone to do anything.
Mind now, when I say 2000
Mind now, when I say I've become cooler, I'm not this cool.
Launch just spat up "Daydream 2000
Launch just spat up "Daydream Believer" by The Monkees. I forget just how pixie-like Davey Jones sounded. I loved them when I was a teenage girl. (Note: I was not a teenage grrrl. I didn't become cool until much much later). Though I was always more drawn to Peter. Freaks, even then, I knew I belonged with the freaks.
[April 29, 2004 - I don't know exactly when I started my Launch account, but I just found out from Todd (my Launchy pal) that the beta, um, launched in November of 1999, so I was in there early. Been using it almost every work day ever since.]
Rageboy's latest screed arrived in 2000
Rageboy's latest screed arrived in my inbox (not up on the website just yet) and he's in good form. Get to the end. It's worth the ride this time.
Mmm, yes, it's all going 2000
Mmm, yes, it's all going according to plan. The posting rate continues to increase at dailyalice. Better tell the ravens playing catch story, Mum.
For the homophiles among you, 2000
For the homophiles among you, I highly recommend the saucy, intelligent and frequently poignant Dispatches From The Bradlands. Hmm, I think it's time to go to the gym and watch the guys watch each other.
The Millennium March on Washington 2000
The Millennium March on Washington is on April 30, 2000. Expect many fun events throughout the United States on that day. Yes, you can come along and play even if you're straight.
It's sad. I don't want 2000
It's sad. I don't want it to be true, but I am switching to Internet Explorer. Netscape is just driving me nuts with flaky behavior. *sigh*
One side effect of this switch is that my bookmarks (yeah yeah, "favorites", whatever) are now alphabetical rather than chronological. I have always found that a bit annoying because I tend to remember sites I bookmark by the context in which I bookmarked them, not by the title tag their creator happens to have chosen.
Still, it is rather pleasant to have my blog link list (26 strong) in alphabetical order. I like the incongruity of jumping directly from cockybastard to my mother's weblog. Not that they don't have a fair amount in common. Take a look at Halcyon's philosophy. Under that slippery skin of sexgodhood lies someone who just loves everything. I think my mother might just be a bit more the other way around.
