Long time no blog.

Wow, it's been over a month since I last posted. I gotta get back into this regular blogging thing again. I have been updating my Twitter account pretty regularly, though.

Here's an executive summary of what's been going on with me:

My website-making job is coming along just dandy. I just finished a pretty big project for a company that makes refrigerated display cases for delis and supermarkets and stuff. They've just deployed it live earlier today - check it out if you have a minute.

Sarah has quit her job and is now running her own business as a massage therapist, having gotten her licensure not too long before. If you want a massage in Iowa City, you should look her up. I helped to code her website, but she did all the design and copy. Go team.

Student Loans

So, I'm up to my eyeballs in debt because of my student loans.  If I make the recommended payments on them, I'll be making those payments for the next 20 years, and with all the interest I will have paid twice what I borrowed.

I figure the obvious solution to all of this is to get my loans consolidated.  Has anyone here gotten their (private, not Federal) loans consolidated?  Who did you go through?  And how much did it save you?

Last night, I voted early for president.  It was really easy.  I think more people should vote early - it would increase overall voter turnout and make the lines much shorter on election day.

One thing I found interesting about the ballot, though, was the dearth of local candidates.  For nearly all the city and county positions, there were exactly as many candidates as there were open seats.  Way to go, incumbency rates.

I already posted this to my Twitter account, but I want this to get as widespread as possible.

Every Single 2008 Nobel Laureate from the US endorses Barack Obama.  62 other laureates from the US do too. Here is a Boston Globe article about it.  A PDF of the letter of endorsement can be found here.

Apparently THC is an antibacterial agent. I forsee hemp soap becoming more popular, much to the delight of obsessive-compulsive stoners everywhere.
