circa 2001-2002

‘Elmo’ and ‘Bert’. My machine is on my desk to the right of these (named ‘Grover’). I went through a phase where all machines were named after Sesame Street characters. I stopped just before having to use Snuffleupagus.

Going through old pictures I found this one of the old ‘labs’ back when we lived in a house that had no space for a lab.

Ahhh the good ol’ pre-DSL days. These are two linux boxes, one of which was on a 56K modem that autodialed my mindspring account if someone on the network requested something outside the network.

Older Pictures

This was on a trip to Springfield when we were young. Left to right, my brother Ed, myself (with a brand new canteen), and our father.

I found a bunch of older pictures that I had either taken with an earlier digital camera or scanned in like the one above. I’ve added some of them to the photo album and I’ll be adding more as I go through them.

It’s so cool sometimes to look back at these!

Jake and Andy – Then and Now.

Remember this posting from September of last year comparing pictures of Kelsi from then to now? Spending some time going through pictures this morning I was amazed by how the boys have grown over the past few years. Here’s another comparison.

Ron and the boys - Navy Pier

This picture was taken about 2 or 3 years ago. Every once in a while, Jonna will take a picture of the three of us together.

Andy, Ron, and Jake at Epcot

This was taken this month in Orlando. Boy, does time fly. Once again, I’m dressed almost exactly the same.

Flickr Photo Album Finally Integrated

I was finally able to integrate the photo album on Flickr into the actual site, thanks to the FAlbum WordPress Plugin released at version .5 by Elijah Cornell. Once again, no brainer to install. All I had to do was modify the falbum-wp.php file to close the extra divs in my theme.

The plugin supports permalinks, tags, and all of the goodies you would expect from a Flickr based photo album.

To see the new photo album, go to, or click the photo album item in the menu at the top of the site.
