2009

Happy New Year! I’ve got a new year resolution or two, but I’m keeping them to myself. =p What I will share, though, is the awesome pizza we had on New Year’s Eve from Arpeggio Grill. We got a monster 28” pizza with a bunch of toppings for something around $32.46 (just a random guess… j/k, I asked Mark).

The plates in the video are almost 9” in diameter, FYI.

A lump and jobs

So I went to the doctor this morning and found out that the lump in my foot is a ganglion cyst, which is rather harmless. That is good. =)

My company, Bazaarvoice, which is quite awesome, is looking to hire a lot of people. Check out the jobs page and drop me an email if you’re interested. I cannot express how exciting and fun it is to work there. =)

Note to self

Here is a good blog post on color space issues on Macs.

Also, note to others: Shane Claiborne is coming to speak at Vox tomorrow. He wrote Irresistible Revolution which I’ve found to be a pretty challenging and interesting book. He was mentored by Tony Campolo, who came to speak when Liquid was at Red River a while ago.

We’ll also be showing another video from the Invisible Children people. I’m not sure what the title is (might be the same: “Invisible Children?”) but this one is about when they went back a second time.

Anyways, the more the merrier, come come!

Shameless Plug

Bazaarvoice will be having an info session with one of our VPs and cofounder. It is tomorrow, March 22nd at 6-7PM in UTC 3.110.

Tonight, my elements group enjoyed wondrous hot pot at Olivia and Stephanie’s. Thank you very much for getting all the food, Stephanie. =) Then we played some fun board games…

That is all. =)

Moved!

If you see this, OliverWEB.com has successfully transferred to its new server and you are viewing the new OliverWEB powered by WordPress.

Yay! Uhhh… too lazy to find lyrics for this post. Will continue later. =)

There will probably be some things broken… please excuse them for the time being… I’ll have them fixed shortly, hopefully.

Edit: Oh fine, here’re some lyrics.

“I’ve got sunshine,
On a cloudy day.
When it’s cold outside,
I’ve got the month of may.
I guess you’d say,
What can make me feel this way?” - Temptations

Who wants to CLEP out? I’ve signed up for:

Tue 11/30/04     10:30 AM - 1:00 P     BWY 104B
at the testing center. BTW, anyone taken the CLEP already? I want to know how much I should study beforehand… I think someone told me there’s a packet somewhere that we can read and it pretty much tells us everything we need to know?

The Hotness

Weeeeellll, it’s October and that means I’m supposed to make a new OliverWEB design. As you can tell, I actually did it “on time” this year. I decided to get rid of all the old stuff and so if you want to look at any of the pages/posts from the past, you’ll have to use the legacy link at the top of this page to view the old OliverWEB.

I decided to give Movable Type a try, so that’s the backend at the moment. I also pretty much completely used CSS for the layout stuff, which is actually pretty cool. I’m waiting for my camera to come in within a few days, but after that, I plan on posting pics and treating this somewhat like a photo-blog. I’m also going to try to keep the page(s) “XHTML 1.0 Transitional“ validated (whatever that means), but we’ll see how that goes. =)
