Various bits of flotsam that washed up on our computers, before we moved to a better blog system in November 2004. Now a repository for YouTube videos and testing new tools. Go to for more recent content.

Yurt redux

Met with our third architect, and our structural engineer; seems like our yurt plans are looking good. Our next consideration is how difficult it would be to go up a 4 ft diameter stair (very tight spiral necessitated by existing beams and columns).

I think we are going for the 16 ft. version, as referenced in the above link.

Cook County correctional

All day today (at least 12 times, starting at 8 am, it's now almost 9 pm), we have been receiving erroneous collect calls from someone at the Cook County Correctional facility. The number being called is (312) 277-04xx which is not our main office number, but a roll-over number, thus the originating number is not picked up by our caller ID.

I don't even know who to contact. Perhaps the Cook County Information Center?

If you ever feel like browsing through the shelves of our library, and can't quite make it in person, this page aims to replicate the experience. Actually, quite a lot of the items listed here are tangible objects you might stumble over if you were walking in my office, because I haven't gotten around to finishing the digestive experience. Ahem.
