a Welcome to PJ's Pad, my own personal wiki.

This home page to PJ's Pad is not going to really be an index to the whole wiki. That would get unwieldy. If you're a frequent visitor (and I hope you are!) you may be better served by using the Recent Changes feature to check out the livelier corners of the wiki.

Getting pretty dusty here. Time to remove the cobwebs and provide some fresh content. I visited Aunty Mary Pat James today and she gave me some family photos and a document describing the family tree of the James family, going back from Bill and Margie. I plan to scan them all and put them up here for family members to enjoy, and to add more information to them such as dates, places, and names of unknown people in some of the pictures. Here are a few initial photo scans:

Please click through to the James Archive page to see the work in progress (including larger versions of the above photos)

Although I know one of the prime poker etiquette rules is that nobody wants to hear your bad beat stories, I had such a spectacular flameout at the Peppermill last night that I simply must relate it.
5/3/05 I switched hosting companies to . Mesopia, my former hosting company, was starting to have some noticeable unplanned downtime. I didn't mind it with the web sites, but having email not available kind of sucks, especially when people send you email and it bounces as undeliverable. I couldn't get my old wiki to work so decided to switch wiki software. I am now using Open Wiki which is all developed in ASP. A bit more MS-friendly than Usemod which was all in Perl.

One downside of Open Wiki is that it doesn't have the access controls that Usemod does, so I can't easily keep the spam-bots from overwriting my content with their filth. I plan to hack the code and add some authentication, probably using captcha if I can get it down before the bots discover this site. At least the revision history is kept in a proper relational database so recovery should be simple.

Here's stuff I found on the internet that I think are really funny. Check them out, maybe you will think they are funny too.
12/20/03: Picked up a bag of Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean to put in Elizabeth's stocking for Christmas. Intrigued to see how she likes the beans with earwax, vomit, booger, or sardine flavor (yes they are in there!)
12/17/03: went to see The Return Of The King today with the buddies

Here's some of the old garbage from my previous home page:
