Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.

The Weirdness That Is the Interwebs

refresh to referrer

I have no clue what is going on, but links to my site (my subdirectory: http://geoffrey.famwagner.com/) from any document on the main family page (http://www.famwagner.com/) result in a page in which is mysteriously inserted a meta refresh tag that refreshes to the referrer. I've found a way of circumventing this from happening, and that is why you are able to read this now if you clicked here from main page.

If you want to see what I'm talking about, go here then click on the link to my subdomain. Almost immediately, you should be redirected back to the previous page. I've looked almost everywhere I could think of to see what's doing this, and I can't find a thing. I've gotten my host administrator involved, and he's stumped, too, as far as I can tell. I've even created a support ticket at my domain registrar, and they have no clue what I'm talking about.

I'm sure this is making little sense to those who have a limited to no knowledge of html, php, etc. I guess I'm writing this so that everyone who reads this knows what's going on, so that those who read this who are savvy in the ways of the web who might have experienced this once before (or something like this) might have a solution they could share, or so that those who read this who are savvy in the ways of the web and who might have some idea to look at might be willing to share it.

Yeah...it's been kinda weird.

Our Home Network

the computer kind

We have a home network we call WagNet. Get it? Wagner...WagNet. Yeah, not so funny, but it makes sense. Well, the other day Dell was running a special called 10 Days of Deals where each day, they had a great deal on four different items. The special price lasted for two days (except for the last day of deals).

Defending the O

Quiet the Criticism

Many are criticizing O for having created an NCAA Tournament bracket and appearing on Leno. They say he should be spending his time on more pressing issues, such as the economy. It sounds as if they want him to spend every waking hour on the country's problems.

So, O'ites, What Say Ye?

what kind of "change" is this?

President Bush and Vice President Cheney were criticized for saying that the economy was basically sound when it wasn't. Presidential hopeful McCain received the same criticism for pretty much the same statement. Running on platform of change, then presidential hopeful Obama proclaimed the economy to be in crisis. Now that he is president, he is calling the economy basically sound. Is this the "Change we can believe in?" Will those of you who criticized Bush, Cheney, and McCain now criticize your messiah?

Nice...Cool

A Bit of Good or Nice News

Kids take pictures of earth and space from 20 miles up using an inexpensive digital camera and helium-filled balloon:

All I want to know is, "Where can I see the other pictures?" and, "Can I use some as a computer background?"

I'm Done...Through

I Just Can't Watch Anymore

The myriad changes Formula 1 is going through are souring the taste for the sport for me. I don't mind the cost cutting changes, in fact, I applaud them. I like trying to make the sport more competitive. But there are some things that have finally turned me away from it.

A Couple of Random Thoughts

and they're related

  • If the Gospel is to predominate, the Law must have its full effect.
  • The greatest enemy of modern Lutheran piety is the sweetest of Lutheran doctrines—that God works through means.

Just a Thought

and nothing more

This president's propensity to spend (even on imperfect spending bills) is creating in me a propensity not to pay my taxes. But, I'll render to "Caesar" that which "belongs to" "Caesar". Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
