Bike Film Festival

This looks kind of cool, a Bike Film Festival. And from what I read it should have films that have better plots then RAD did!

Adventures in CSS

Today surfing the web I found something amazing. It's called CSS Zen Garden. So for those of you that don't know what CSS stands for, it's Cascading Style Sheet. Basically, it is a way of defining the style of your web site. As it has matured in its standards and and adoption it has goten more powerful. This site is a great example of that.

The Big Test..Not so Much

Today, I was nervous, I got up early and got ready for the day. For today, I was to take me first test for my MCAD certification. Like I said I was really nervous, so I take the early train in, and get in, relax a little bit and as my co-worker to drive me to the testing spot. I get there and get to the correct floor, and things don't look right. The walls have the wallpaper removed. There are computer parts laying on a desk. I am thinking not all is well here. I find a room with someone in it, and tell them I am here to take my certification. They say, "That's odd, our testing center has been closed for a month for the remodel.  Go down the hall and talk with Tina, she will help you out". So I go and talk with Tina and she says "They didn't call you? they should of called you to tell you that we were closed, here is the other company's phone number and the case number, you can call them and reschedule". Okay so now, I'm a little put out, I've been studying like a mad man for this thing, and now I have to wait. This isn't funny. So I walk out of the building and call my co-worker, asking if he would be so nice as to come get me early. Being the gentlemen he is, he turns right around to get me. While I wait for him I call the parent company and explain the situation, to which I get the same reply. "They didn't call you?!". Long story short, I get them to reschedule, then I get online when I get back to the office and schedule the test for exactly one week from now, two blocks from my Mom and Dads. Better, definitely better.
