Model Building

One of my oldest hobbies is plastic model building. I used to have a huge collection of airplanes and warships. However, over the years I've had to leave them behind for one reason or another, and now that we're getting a house, I can renew my aquaintance with model glue and xacto-knives.

While packing today, I discovered a pile of old unfinished models that I will have a chance to work on. A Ticonderoga-class cruiser, a Folke-Woulf TA-152, a Nimitz class carrier, and a HUGE XB-70 Valkyrie model. Plus, tonight we picked up a complete Shuttle stack kit for me to build for the boys new space-themed room.

Since I won't have a monstrous hidden space for models, I have a short list of items I will want to add to my new collection once I've finished these. Yamato, Iowa and Bismarck class battleships, an A-10 Warthog, and an SR-71 Blackbird. Sweet :-)

Python on PBS Tonight

As mentioned earlier, PBS stations will be airing the first of the "Monty Python's Personal Best" series tonight. Check your local listings for times. I just checked mine. Apparently they are doing two per night, so the whole series will take three weeks.

I've been working on porting an old Windows reporting application to a web-based application, using AJAX. I have discovered the wonders of AJAX, which is impressive to say the least. If you're a programmer, I suggest you take a look at The AJAX Toolbox. Highly recommended.
