"an ology for the new millenium"
Why, it's the vanity site and weblog of Eric Tilton! [*]

Bernie says hello. He'd like to know if you have any wet cat food for him.

Welcome to ology.org! This is the personal vanity site of Eric Tilton and Carrie Jones. It mainly exists so that we can laugh heartily at our clever e-mail addresses (like tele@ology.org). Ho ho ho!

Please wander around, and feel free to enjoy my fine Corinthian web log.

After a day of near-autistic solitaire play on the new iBook:

Carrie: "This is all your fault!"
Eric: "Hey, you asked for a solitaire game."
Carrie: "I didn't ask for psychotic monkey solitaire!".

Burning Monkey Solitaire 2. It's g-r-r-r-reat. Check it out.

Some Thanksgiving pictures:

We've been literary lately. A few weeks back, we went to a Douglas Coupland reading, and just a week ago, we went and heard Lawrence Block. He looks & sounds exactly like I expected, which is pretty weird. We're such dorks that we named our cat Bernie (he of the perennial image on the left of this blog) after one of Block's characters. (And after Robert Parker -- the cat's full name is "Barnegat Parker", or Bernie for short.)

Some images from Carrie's parents' greenhouse:

A festive holiday cat decoration:

A small sampling of the delicious feast:

I spent a good fifteen minutes polishing up a set of mini-reviews for movies seen recently, only have to be eaten by a Blogger database snafu. So, in short: go see Monsters, Inc. and From Hell. No requirement to see them on the same night. I'd also recommend Harry Potter and the blah blah blah, but if you've already decided if you're going to see it or not. In fact, you probably went opening night, didn't ya? Admit it! (OK, a brief comment on it: loved it, but I wonder how accessible it is to those six people who haven't read the books. Thought most of the visuals and effects were spot on, but the CG mannikins were awful. Still, it didn't distract from my enjoyment of the Quidditch match.)

Something's wrong when you've got 12.5 gigs left on your hard drive, and you're thinking "gosh, it's starting to get cramped in here." Still, I'm starting to eye an 80gig Firewire drive greedily; I want something I can hook up to the laptop to store MP3s and (more importantly) JPGs from the ole' digital camera onto.

I just discovered the "rip & eject" setting in iTunes, so I'm sitting here shoveling CDs into my tiBook while I work on other things. I love my damn tiBook. I love OS X. I love finally having an OS that's geek heaven and creative heaven all in one little ball. I love that I've got the laptop hooked up to an external keyboard & monitor, and that it's preferable to use it than either of the two towers sitting within two feet of me. I love that this isn't a paid endorsement; I genuinely enjoy this stuff. I guess there's no zealot like a reformed one.

I. cannot. wait. for my iPod to get here. I also can't wait to pick up Carrie's iBook from the complex office tomorrow; it's like a new toy by proxy. I now have more Macs than Wintels in this apartment (by a factor of 2!), and the bulk of them are on 802.11b (including one fixed emplacement that it was easier to not run cabling to). I'm such a god-damned (blessed?) geek. Wheehoo!
