Armageddon Or Not?
I tried this briefly last year, but when I found a plug-in to put a 1-10 rating system on WordPress and Barry Manilow's album hit #1, I knew that this was the right time for an interactive web-based system for public voting on the doom-worthiness of current Apocalyptic trends (Global Warming, Bird Flu, Britney's Babies, etc.). So please, visit, vote and suggest some of the Signs of the Apocalypse I have obviously missed. But do it soon. The world could end tomorrow.

West Memphis Murders
For a time I've been fascinated by the murders that took place in West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993, made infamous by the documentaries, Paradise Lost and its sequel. Although there are other sites that advocate for the convicts celebre, the West Memphis Three, I believe this is the first site dedicated to the murders itself. I opened this web site two months ago, but now I finally feel I have enough basic information to round out a picture, at least as an introduction.

Day and Night on a Google Map
The title sums it up pretty well: the pattern of night and day on a Google map, for any area of the Earth, for any date and time. You can select up to ten locations on the map; in addition to seeing at a glance whether it's daytime there, you can show their local time, sunrise and and sunset times, and length of day. The site can thus function as a graphical world clock, and can be used to show relative times of any future or past event.

Get Rich Slowly
This site picks up where a popular weblog entry left off, with daily information about personal finance and related topics. I share stories about debt elimination, saving money, and practical investing. I post occasional reviews of web sites, books, magazines, and software. (Sometimes I mine AskMe for topics!) I also post news about simplicity, frugality, and personal development. There's even a personal finance forum where like-minded people can exchange ideas. This is a new venture for me, and I'm still trying to find my footing. The site will evolve over time, improving at every step. Please feel free to leave suggestions and comments.

Machine Gum - comics by me!
A series of comics and experiments in funny pictures. Machine Gum is an outlet for me to play around in the medium of comics. It's not a webcomic per se since it's not confined to a singular narrative or format; it's more like a playground where I can have fun with the medium and with drawing silly things. Fun for the whole family!

Hierarchical folders, instant & reversible image editing, multiple parent folders, tag combination searching, AJAXy popups and page updates, watermarks and size restrictions ... and easily capable of organizing my collection of 14,800 images (so far). Has its own colocated server, open and free signups, and a single developer (me!) who reads his mail and acts on feedback. Some entry points: San Diego December 2005, my 1980's geek cred, a search for the tag combination ontario and long.exposure, my folder tree, the photomosaic page, and the answer to the question, "why reinvent the wheel?" Many more features in the works.

The Cape Cod Ice Cream Challenge
One day while driving with my friend we were talking about our love of ice cream. We got to talking that on Cape Cod (where we both live) there are about a million ice cream shops. Some are well known, some are not. After a bit of talking we came up with the idea that we would eat ice cream from as many of them as we could. We would record the results and post them here for the rest of the world to see.

Grazer's Song a Day Songs
Inspired by the results of various rigorous ‘blank’-a-day exercises of writers (100 nights, 100 stories – click the banner at top) and artists (40 days of drawing) that I’ve seen online, I’ve decided it’s time to take the challenge myself, and write/record a song a day. With the notion that no melody or idea is too small, overused or simple, I’ve set a few restrictions for myself: I have to make the song up on the spot – sit down, write the song, record it. For the most part, lyrics have to be improvised, but I can improvise freely then write them down before recording (though this has generally not been the case). If I do a take and it’s not terrible, I have to leave it and move on to overdubs and attempt to fix and flaws with additional vocals or sounds. I’ve allowed myself a seven day buffer before uploading (and uploaded 12 songs here before announcing), since I’m a busy guy and all… but any days I miss I’ll have to make up by recording two songs the next. And I must accept failure if what I record is no good, and move on. I’ve chosen the blogger format for the song directory so I can easily post links from anywhere, and so anyone interested can leave comments on the songs. I hope that listeners will take part in helping me choose which aspects of which songs work and which do not, so I can further develop. I have no idea how long I'll be able to keep it up, but I hope to make it to at least fifty songs. If you’re looking for a song to start with, try today’s upload, eye peach.

Thrupp: Get music from iTunes to MP3 players
Thrupp is a program for Macs that automates the process of copying music from iTunes to non-iPod MP3 players and phones. You just drag songs, albums and playlists over from iTunes and Thrupp does the rest - it even keeps playlists up to date if you edit them. And music in AAC or Apple Lossless format is converted to MP3 while it's being copied.
