NH HCR 6: Wonderful Legislation

“A RESOLUTION affirming States’ rights based on Jeffersonian principles“ Key points: whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force all acts of Congress which assume to create, define, or punish crimes, other than those so enumerated in the Constitution are altogether void to take from the States [...]

Fall

How can you tell it’s fall in New Hampshire? The treetops blaze in pyrotechnic glory, and the air becomes crisp and cool in anticipation of winter. How can you tell it’s fall in Alabama? Air conditioning isn’t necessary until after sunrise.

if you want the code find it yourself in the repository

For those of you who have large adwords accounts, I just finished the beginnings of a management tool to make it easier to control exactly what and where things go. The general launch point of this program is the batch file awapi.bat. That file handles the mechanics of loading all the necessary classes; the Java [...]

vacation aar

My vacation is over; I am back in NH. I had a good time in Worcester visiting my friends; Seattle was amazingly beautiful, and the North Carolina beach was idyllic. I can’t say that I came away with any particularly interesting stories other than those I bought as reading material, but it was good to [...]

security monoculture

Despite that, only my mother and grandmother can speak French (their ancestral tongue), and it was a second language for both of them. Every one of us speaks English as our first and primary language. My great-grandfather on my mother’s mother’s [...]

545

So, I’m back home in New Hampshire for a few days. Tonight, it occurred to me that this was a Thursday evening, which is when Civil Air Patrol meets locally, so I though I would stop by and see how things were going for the squadron. I guess this only really makes sense to those [...]

uh, we’re going to have to do something about this…

Well. I hadn’t expected this to happen… For most of the year, I slept away from the window. I preferred to have it open, but ultimately it was my roommate’s decision because he was nearer the window. Thw window stayed shot a lot, then. It was open sometimes because for soem reason, this room has [...]
