The Website Is Down

July 23rd, 2008 No comments

Over at DesignHammer, we seem to have learned of the hilarious “The Website Is Down” (a.k.a. Sales Guy vs Web Dude) video before it took off, and ironically, brought the hosting website down.

If you are one of the few in IT who haven’t caught the tale of a hapless web developer whose job-time Halo games and job search are constantly interrupted by bozo colleagues and clients, and was as naive managers, check it out. Even if you are not in IT, it is really funny—just have someone explain some of the more technical humor to get the most from it. Suzanne thought it was funny enough to watch over and over again.

How is this going to work?

March 19th, 2008 1 comment

We are still organizing photos and text from our trip to post to the website. Don’t worry, they aren’t stuck in a Series of Tubes, we are just being poky. Once we get them up, we are going to post the stories and photos dated to when they happened, so you will have to scroll down a few posts to see them. A little counterintuitive, but will allow us to treat the posts as a travelogue—just imagine you are reading them as they happen.

I am also using Flickr to host the photos, so if you click on one, you will jump to the Flickr website, and the option to see a larger version (look for the tiny magnifying glass above the photo), as well as the rest of the photos. Look for a “Read More” link below the photo when reading posts on the home page of the Dust Rhino website, which is easy to miss—this leads to the rest of the post, which may have additional photos.

Please feel free to comment on this website, as well as in Flickr. We seem to get a bunch of traffic from around the world, and am curious to hear from all of our fans.

Back from our trip

March 16th, 2008 No comments

Suzanne and I are back from our trip to Israel and Egypt. We had a great time, but it taking us a while to get back into the swing of work, and it will probably be a while longer before we get out travel stories and photos posted. Until then, here are some photos from the White Canyon, Sinai, Egypt.

Can you go home again?

February 6th, 2008 No comments

In conjunction with the Ackland Museum’s Picturing the World: Carolina’s Celebrated Photojournalists exhibit, one of the featured photographers, Janet Jarman, gave a talk covering her series of photographs “Crossing: Tale of the Rich North,” for which she followed the life of a single family for more than a decade. Janet was one of classmates and peers at UNC, so I wanted to listen to her speak, and catch up afterwards.

Despite living in Durham, I don’t seem to get back to UNC as often as I could (or should). Suzanne, on the other hand, spends too much time there, and it’s not the place she wants to be when she doesn’t need to be. Tonight she made an exception, and so i picked her up from the Health Sciences campus, and headed up north to the Journalism School. With the UNC (#3) vs. Duke (#2) game set to start in a few hours, the town and campus was full of Carolina blue clad fans milling about in the light drizzle, as well as some Dookies (try not to hate them), making a surreal homecoming of sorts.

Happy New Year

January 1st, 2008 No comments

Suzanne and I wish everyone a healthy and prosperous new year. Looking back on our posts from 2007, we traveled far and wide, and were lucky to get to spend time with our family and friends. We are hoping to add more in the new year.

Our big news is we will be traveling to Israel and Sinai in February, for the vacation Suzanne has been looking forward to for years.
