I was working a little today in the admin section managing this blog, and I noticed a link to browsehappy.com. It is a site that tries to influence people to stop using Internet Explorer and switch to any of 4 different browsers (FireFox being at the top of the list). I read on, and they feel that Internet Explorer (IE) is 1. Unsafe and 2. Not as efficient.
I’ve used FireFox, and I don’t agree with them, but I wanted something substantial to validate my opinion. Enter FireFox Myths, a site that debunks a lot of the fanhype that surrounds this browser. It also shows that IE really isn’t all that bad and isn’t lacking in anything FireFox has. I feel so strongly about it, I’ve put up a semi-permanent link on the sidebar.
This seems to be the busiest time of the quarter. I have a million papers to grade (but no more Huck Finn essays YEAH!), and all the students seem to be worrying about their grades now. The quarter ends next week, so I can’t blame them. Oh, lots to do.
So, have a good day all (even though it is only Adam who reads this now). Until later…
This is just to inform everyone that I added a “Quotes” page (under “Pages” on the right) where Jessica and I will be putting any cool quotes we run across. I’m hoping that over time, you’ll be able to read through them and get a good feeling for who we are and how we feel about things.
On a different note, check out http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov for an interesting look at the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, a new research vessel that will give us an unparalleled look at Mars’ water history, terrain, mineral traces, etc.

Well, this weekend has been a busy weekend. Saturday we worked like crazy to get to a million things done, and still have a million more to do. By the time today got here, I was so burned out that I couldn’t get the papers I need to grade finished. Oh well, it happens.
This pretty cool that we can do this…
I know no one is reading this (except for you Jessica, Hey!), but I wanted to make it official. We’re live!
Adam and Jessica were married in the Idaho Falls LDS temple on June 5, 2004 and have been living happily ever after since. They currently live in the Oklahoma City area where Adam works as a software developer and Jessica is teaching technology at Deer Creek Middle School. They started this blog (and site) to have a place to store their opinions, rants, raves, and all such things as seemeth them good. Enjoy!
