Catching up

It’s been a little while since my last update. I’ve been a little hesitant to post because I’m working on redesigning my web site and blog, and was planning to finish that first… but as with most things, it’s taking longer than expected. Right now my blog is hosted by Google, and I’ve got some static web pages on my Wiki running in my basement (which is a pain because with Verizon’s FiOS, my IP address changes from time to time, and they block the standard web server port, so I need to run my server on port 8080), and some older pages just lying around in various places. I’m working on consolidating everything into one application: WordPress. I’m hoping to be done in a week or two. In theory, RSS feeds and e-mail subscriptions should keep working, but if you stop getting automatic blog updates after mid-September, check back in at www.mfischer.com to re-subscribe.

If you’ve been reading Kathie’s Blog you’ll know most of what’s been going on recently. To sum up, we went to a Nationals baseball game last weekend, we’ve got a new foster dog named Harper, and we’ve been playing a lot of video games. Our XBox 360 blogs for us automatically every day about what we’ve played… here’s my 360 blog and here’s Kathie’s. The 360’s online / Internet functionality is light-years ahead of the Playstation 3 and Wii — even though those consoles came out a full year after the 360. Since the long (long, long) awaited Metroid Prime: Corruption came out last week for the Wii, that’s pretty much all I’ve played. We’ve also been working on the garden outside again now that the weather isn’t as oppressive, and working on our resum├ęs since we’re thinking it’s time for our vacation to wrap up soon.
