Mass Debates

Thursday, September 30th, 2004

Tonight’s festivities remind me of a day in high school when several of my friends and I were returning to school for Band rehearsal. As we walked through the halls toward the Band Hall, talking and laughing, an annoyed Communications teacher emerged from a classroom full of students and chided us with, “Shhh! We’re practicing […]

SP2: So far so good

Sunday, September 26th, 2004

SP2 installed like a charm, except for shoving IE and Media Player down my throat.

Quick Update / New Article

Thursday, September 16th, 2004

I’ve added a page for you power users out there. It’s a list of commands that you can enter at Start > Run to get and modify system information. It’s pretty short, but it’s all I could think of at the moment. Any additions you can think of (through the handy “Comments” link) are welcome. […]

Garden State review

Sunday, September 5th, 2004

I just came across (via Boss Lady) Zach Braff’s weblog. It’s pretty amusing, and some of the comments are quite good too (if you weed through the “You’re so awesome” ones). This reminded me that I’d just seen his movie Garden State, and so I thought I’d share my thoughts on it. First, I really […]

Summer Daze

Saturday, September 4th, 2004

This was such an unproductive summer. I thought at least this whole Web design thing was going to take off, but then I found out I had to deal with clients. They don’t seem to have the same urgency that an unemployed, out of school, sitting-at-home-all-day guy does. Fancy that. I’ve had to busy myself […]

Look What I Made!

Thursday, September 2nd, 2004

Sitting at a computer writing code with Radiohead blaring is not exactly a social experience. Sometimes I have to amuse myself. This generally amounts to writing silly comments in the code, or odd variable or class names. Sadly, my humor is lost on the masses; only an accidental source viewer would see any of this. […]

Back to School

Wednesday, September 1st, 2004

Well, it’s back to school after one of the most uneventful summers ever. It’s actually the first summer I haven’t worked since 1999. I’m excited to go back, but it’s the kind of excitement that wears off after the first night I have to get up after three hours of sleep or walk into class […]

A Brief Introduction

Wednesday, September 1st, 2004

I’m Matthew, obviously, and this is my personal Web site, also obviously. Here at DNDW I plan to tackle such thought-proviking issues as… well, I’m not sure right now, but when I think of something I’ll make sure and write it down. I never jumped onto the livejournal bandwagon; I even scoffed. But being a […]
