server migration underway
fyi, i'm moving photo.stottsan.net to a new server tonight. i disabled logins on the current/old installation so i could copy the database and all static content (currently 497MB of photos). once you see logins enabled again, you'll be on the new server. shouldn't be any issues, but please let me...

farewell, jerry orbach
jerry orbach died today of prostate cancer, which he'd been battling since earlier this year. orbach, as lennie briscoe, was an amazing fixture (so much more than an actor) on law & order, one of my favorite shows (as many of you know). gothamist has an excellent post, so i'll...

dumbf***istan
on SNL tonight the tv funhouse was a spoof on rudolph, and i'm honestly still laughing... rudolph was doing his thing, yelling "merry christmas delaware! next stop virginia and north carolina!" but santa said "no rudolph, we're skipping them this year! screw the red states, voting for that dumbass president...

europe trip, nov 2004
we flew to frankfurt (FRA) and then hopped a lufthansa flight to toulouse (TLS), then took the ICE train to amsterdam (AMS) and flew back home from there direct to chicago.... needless to say, i took all possible advantage of the comfort and got my sleep on. of course, i still made time to watch anchor man and snack on "crab- and nut-crusted mahi mahi," but can you blame me?

easy voting, easy win
so my voting experience today was completely painless. no long waits, no confusing instructions, no badgering outside the polling place... then again, all i had to do was walk downstairs and across the street to the fire station and get my vote on. everyone was nice and efficient, although it...

crazy elections in palm beach
i heard about this monday morning while on the way to the airport in palm beach, and it's making its way across the news wires. hard to believe this sort of thing can happen at all, let alone in a state so under-the-microscope as florida is this election. way to...

you go packers!
now, why would i say something crazy like that?!?! because green bay beat the washington redskins this fine sunday, thereby prophetizing kerry's win on tuesday. i wasn't expecting such a huge turnout in the press, but i guess i didn't think they'd blow something completely out of proportion. oh wait.......

forget the u2 ipod
granted, the u2 special edition ipod is a pretty cool -- if you like u2 and only need 20GB of storage that is. but i'm thinking i'd much rather have an ashlee simpson karaoke edition one... courtesy of airbag industries, hopefully it'll still be posted by the time you make...

shot night 4
shot night 4 was in full effect this weekend, and broke all previous attendance records... there were a lot of fresh new faces, not to mention DDR (ok, stepmania, whatever). by all accounts, things went pretty smoothly, especially in the "puke in andrew's kitchen sink and/or bathroom" department! mad love...

check this out, from techiegold's "salary report" page for chicago: The major players on the Chicago IT scene are not VC-backed new kids on the block, but rather blue-chip companies showing steady growth.

correction, now i'm the iron chef
a while back i posted this about how i'm an awesome cook... certainly (despite the crappy photo) that meal rocked, but i now realize just how fantabulous i truly am. last week i made 3 kickass dinners ("stott's spinach salad," "holy-shit-that's-spicy italian sausage omelet," and "teriyaki-ginger stir fry") and i've...

wow, that's some horribly hot acting
i was all excited for tonight's premiere of fox's north shore -- probably too excited. i mean, it is hawaii, and it is fox. and of course don't forget that brooke burns is on... but even though everyone was crazy hot, the acting was seriously some of the worst i've...

what's the best airport food value?
for my cheddar, it has to be mcdonald's. i know, i don't even eat it normally. but at ORD there isn't any other place where you can pick up a meal and a drink for under $5. sure you can hit up wolfgang puck's, but you're lucky to get out...

ok, i don't know how it works out in terms of people but "pop" looks to hold the surface area crown, at least according to this map right here. why does the silly south insist on using "coke" when "pop" and "soda" make waaaaay more sense?!?!?! thank gawd the midwest...
