Spam ruins everything

So I have been forced to turned on "word verification" on our blog. What this means is that, if you want to post a comment, you'll have to do something to prove you're a human being. It usually consists of reading some funky-looking text, like this:

And typing in exactly what it says. This is something that's very difficult for a computer to do automatically, but relatively easy for a person to do.

I didn't want to use this feature, because it's annoying. But today we got comment-spammed (about 50 comments were posted in a 30 second period; all of them linked to shifty sales websites), so my hand has been forced.

Where's the food?

Edgar has a question.... or at least his tail does!

The times, they are a-shifting

So Allie and I have entered the world of 21st century television. Our TiVo (our first DVR) arrived yesterday, along with one year of the TiVo service. We set it up and I added a few "Season Pass" recordings (i.e., shows that the TiVo should always record) last night. We played around with pausing/rewinding "Live TV." It's really neat. Sure beats the hell out of the digital box we had from our cable provider.

They say it changes the way you watch television, but I suspect it will still mostly consist of sitting, snacking, and absent-mindedly browsing the web. :)

Yes, my life does consist of me sitting around taking pictures of my cats.

Visit us on the intarwebs!

So Allie and I bought a domain (read: website). Right now we're focusing on putting information about the wedding up, so it's not terribly pretty. Eventually there will be photos and stuff too! Check us out here:

What if...

(from Saturday Night Live)

[EDIT] Apparently NBC has very uncool-ly instructed YouTube to remove this video. However, through the magic of the internet, you can still see it here.
