Bali’s right next door

My buddy Rick, one of my oldest friends and dearest, has been in Bali for a few weeks. My mate the Bearman got an email from him a couple of days ago, and apparently Rick was partying it up in Kuta last Friday night. The bomb went off on Saturday night, and we’ve been trying to get in touch with him since. So far, we’ve heard nothing.


Just woke up. He’s alive, and on this list as ‘Richard H. Gluosom’. No idea yet what his condition is, though.

I’m not a praying person, Chris, Bearman. But I’m a hoping person. And right at this moment, I’m hoping for you and I’m hoping with all my might for your friend. I’m hoping a whole hell of a lot.

RDF Writing

Practical RDF—Chapter 1

I just posted the first chapter of Practical RDF to the book review weblog. I plan on posting 2-3 chapters every day until all chapters are posted.

I cancelled family commitments as I need to have the chapter reviews finished by the end of the month — I’ll be losing my web server November 4th, when the end of my rental period is up.

(Note that I’m not letting the server go because I’m unhappy with Interland — the company has been great. However, I don’t need either the power or the size of server I currently have.)

Besides, nothing like a tight deadline to make a book review process flow quickly

I had hoped to have more chapters ready for review today but a couple of things came up this weekend that delayed me a bit. Still, better to start with one chapter than none.

My appreciations in advance to any and all who are willing to give me a hand with the review.
