if I, on my 250 down / 250 up fiber, EVER have to wait for your site to load... i will never visit it again... 
this is both a warning and a fact. there is NO excuse for a slow web-server these days.... none.

i REALLY need to start looking at the full code when i program. i tend to get task myopia... 
 i've written 5 or 6 javascript classes in the last few days, and looking at it now, i've written a socket instant messaging client with webcam, fileserver and internal groupmail capabilities... disguised as a video game that STILL doesnt work correctly because i keep working on sidetasks... facepalm

Pull out your toques, throw some canadian bacon on the tv.
IT'S CANADA DAY!
Sortez vos tuques, jeter un peu de lard canadien sur la tv. 
C'EST LA FÊTE DU CANADA! 

Arent we lucky? all that free healthcare, undiluted beer and bacon that isnt afraid to be a little chunky.... ALL the other countries are jealous as hell of our cool flag. Our trees bleed sweetness for flip's sake...
however... remember to be careful. lots of people out today, and lots of drinking taking place guys. Stay safe, call a designated driver if you need to.

My mum and i live on opposite sides of the world. i dont speak to her as often as i'd like. i havent seen her in over 10 years. i'd give anything to hug her and have her meet my spouse and my kids. Hug your Mum if you can, some of us dont get the luxury.
happy mother's day mummy, i miss you a bunch.

Last night i had an incredibly lucid dream of a storm that hits Ontario next week. i have NEVER seen this much wind damage... trees and poles down all over the city and emergency services were totally overrun... hope to hell it's not a precognition kinda thing... cos this was one NASTY bastard..
