Happenings and Rants

So here are some archived “Recent Happenings” and “Recent Rants” from my main page:

Recent Happenings
Today something pretty exciting will be happening: 100,000 people or so will be right outside my door watching the finish of Stage 6 of the Amgen Tour of California bicycle race. They closed McBean Parkway last night in front of the mall and there will be all kinds of festivities there today along with the stage finish this afternoon between 2:30-3:00 PM. At first, I wasn’t so interested but now I think it’ll be pretty exciting!

I’m hoping to take some HD video from my balcony and down on the street, then I’ll edit and upload it as a podcast (if I actually can get that motivated). That way you’ll be able to see what it was like. Not only that, but it’s another beautiful day in Southern California!
The last thing is that I’ve begun exploring the idea of entering an online university program to get my Masters in Education. My boss already said she thinks that it would easily fall under the Tuition Reimbursement program, so the company will pay. Stay tuned!

Recent Rant
Okay, so here’s a first rant: why are PCs such CRAP?

I went through the trouble of redesigning my website with this beautiful new layout and when I first looked on it with MSIE on my PC at the office, it looked horrible. I know that one of the problems seems to be with the default fonts selected, so I changed some of them yet they still look awful. PCs seem to be so far behind the quality of Macs in the world of graphics and display technology. If you really want to see what I’m talking about, have a look at this site from a mac using Safari.

It’s just so frustrating having to futz around with things so they’ll look good on both platforms in the supposedly “standards-based” world of the web.
