Your projects are such a mix of "I feel all nice and homey/snuggly (Jellystone), but still AI-esque freaked-out ("homegrown Linux box")...its simultaneously cool and scary. =)

Then again, having just finished a couple of really good dystopian cyberpunk SF novels by Ian McDonald, I'm probably projecting. hehe

And thank you for indirectly revealing to me the meaning of Pi Day. Very funny, very cool, eminently geeky - which explains why so many of the folks I know posted about it.

Pi Day - yes, I first heard about it on on a friend's LJ a year or two ago and decided that I would mention it this year. I did a calculation which revealed that there is an interpretation that could get you down to the Pi Minute, but that was a stretch.

googling for Pi Day reveals:

March 27th!!

Howdy Jeff,
Well I wrote you a birthday email and tried to find a valid email address for you but that message was just returned so even though it's somewhat inappropriate perhaps to wish you Happy Birthday on this thread, that's exactly what I'm doing, lol.
Hey man, if you can, shoot me an email at mitch dot deighan at comcast dot net so I'll be able to forward the note I wrote but even if you don't shoot me a note I hope you have a real nice birthday!
