Week nine



Blogging from my phone

Trying out another blogging app for my phone. So far, nothing seems to work very well.

Elite progress

I wrote a few posts ago about a Kickstarter project for an updated version of Elite.  Here's the video:

I've been checking on the progress of the Kickstarter project, and I'm starting to worry that it isn't going to get funded.  They have 21 days to go, and it's at $1,179,243 of $2,015,800.  Only 21 days to go.

More before breakfast

Had to drop Amber off super early this morning, so I was in the office by 7:00 AM.  It's interesting how much I can get done in an hour when no one else is around.  But it is also sad how sleepy I am.

Going after my third cup of coffee.

It’s official

So I have to admit, I underestimated my (approximately six) readers.  I thought that if I posted a random picture of a lima bean, no one would really think anything about it.  Or if they did, that it would be something like, “huh, that’s a strange picture.  Well, he’s kind of a strange guy sometimes, so that makes sense.”

I figured it would be a couple more weeks and more posts of pictures of legumes or fruit before anyone would really start to question what it was all about.  As it turns out, you are more perceptive than I gave you credit for.  Our friend Kathy correctly deduced less than 24 hours after my post the true meaning behind the picture: Amber is pregnant.

It’s probably earlier than most people usually reveal such news – next week is actually just week eight - but we’re very happy and I just can’t help myself.  We had an ultrasound earlier this week and got to see the heartbeat.  Pretty cool, huh?  Life really is amazing.

Our doctor actually called her our little lima bean, but I guess I jumped the gun a little on the picture for week eight.  Here’s a better approximation of week seven.


No, we really don’t know that she’s a she.  Maybe he’s a he.  I think she’s a she, though.

Comments fixed

It looks like there was a configuration that I messed up in my last upgrade.  Anyway, comments should be fixed now.  Please let me know if you see any other issues.

Comments broken

It looks like comments aren’t working on the blog.  I’ll try to get them fixed soon.
