New Shower Door

Had a productive weekend, and installed a new shower door in the bathroom. It looks so much better!

This is what it looked like before:

There is a few more pics of higher quality if you click on the images.

Roller Weblogger

After setting up Roller for Megan to use, I did find that one aspect of managing the look/feel of your blog is a bit confusing. Not to mention that Megan got an ugly stack strace after trying to post her first blog entry.

Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException

Anyway, it seems that I am not the first to write about these issues and the authors are working on fixing them. I should sign up to the development mailing list and look for ways to help, but I'm already subscribed to a gazillion other mailing lists...

I ordered a StonGard (pronounced Stone Guard) light kit for my WRX a few weeks back from RockBlocker. It's pretty amazing that after a year and a half and 31k miles of driving the car, how many small rock chips are in the fog and head lights as well as the front bumper. The StonGard is thick, flexible 3M plastic material which you apply over the area you are protecting. I figure if it keeps my head and fog lights from getting chipped they will pay for themself. I installed one fog light this morning. Some people recommend using a liquid solution when installing, but I found that it just made it tough to get the material to stick. I had to get the heatgun out to help evaporate the liquid which sped up the process. I will try the other fog light without any liquid as the guys at RockBlocker recommend. Now I have to decide whether or not to get some paint protection as well, my bumper is getting pretty dinged up and I wouldn't want it to get too much worse.

Hi Megan!

Megan came down and visited Wendy and me last weekend while down here for her sister's bachelorette/bachelor party. She mentioned that she was interested in setting up a Blog of her own, so now she's got one!

PS - She turns 27 tomorrow!
