A Serviceman to Be 

My brother, Philip is going to be a United States Marine next year.

He had a wonderful adventure trying to get in. He had to go to Cleveland to MEPS and undergo a physical. There was a holdup about that. It was cleared up with a doctor's excuse. But the doctor's unclear handwriting caused them to believe there was another problem. That was cleared up, and now he has officially sworn in.

Next year, he'll ship out at the end of July.

First Wi-Fi Hotspot 

Hello! I'm writing this entry on my dad's laptop in a parking lot inside our van. I happened to find a WiFi hotspot in Marion, Ohio at Meijer. I believe the connection is coming from a hotel about 100 yards away.

It's pretty exciting!

Gotta go. CYA.

My First Big Mac 

Last Saturday, my parents went out to do some clothes shopping. I didn't feel like going, so I stayed home with my brothers and sister. We got McDonald's for lunch, and they got my order wrong. How strange! McDonald's would -never- do that! :tongue: They gave me a Big Mac instead of what I ordered. Over the countless times I have eaten there and the fact that I worked at the Big M Supper Shop for nearly five years, I have never desired to eat a Big Mac. Much to my surpise, it was edible. I won't say it tasted great, but it was OK.

A few days ago, I cleaned my room. It was getting too messy for me to look at. :tired: It looks much better cleaned.

My sister gave me her birthday wish-list. It's coming up in a few weeks. I'm probably going to get her a CD player. She's been wanting

My latest coding projects have involved PHP. I was working on my brother's guestbook ( http://philiplance.is-a-geek.com/guestb ... stbook.php) because it was getting spammed a LOT. The funny thing was that they were posting HTML code. They all used a div tag and styled it to be hidden! How strange. Anyways, I added my own unique captcha system (without session ID's) to defeat automated submissions. Spammers also get a nice little message.
The other project concerns bbcode. What is bbcode? Click here. I've extenively modified the code listed at the wikipedia page. It supports many more things. It's still a work in progress. If my other computer's on, you can access it at http://stephen.calvarybucyrus.org:1000/ ... e/test.php.

Anyways, off to watch TV for now. CYA.

Color Changes 

The weather certainly has changed from summer! The trees are eliciting shades of orange, yellow, pink, and red. With that turnabout comes the cold weather. It's been much cooler lately, and frost is making its entrance.

I've been playing around with my blog setup for the past couple days. Notice the different colors and style! I like the blue theme. I hope to put a fresh face on my website's homepage soon. It needs a new layout.

Another major goal met was getting my room clean! :tongue: Seeing all that mess really started to bother me, so I finally got it taken care of.

Right now, I'm working on upgrading our web server. Yes, the one you're viewing this page from. I have a 1.2 gHz AMD computer that's getting XP on it right now. If it shows itself more stable than the current server (Win98SE), then it gets the job!

Sometimes, it's quite ironic that people think a pastor's life is a cakewalk. They think he spend a few hours a day in his office, gets his sermons off the internet, and plays games a lot. That couldn't be farther from the truth!
I'm finding out how busy the little things can keep you. My dad (http://calvarybucyrus.org/pastor) has been giving me more responsibilities as youth pastor. I'm working more with children now. Though it gets busy, it's fun.

My todo list getting quite long! I guess that's from spending too much time on the little binary box!
