Weather Info System Tray 1.3 Released

Weather Info System Tray 1.3

I've just released Weather Info System Tray 1.3.  Weather Info System Tray 1.3 contains a number of bug fixes as well as the addition of a 5 day extended forecast. This update fixes issues where the application would continue to pop up message boxes when the network was unavailable, and an unhandled exception if the network was unavailable when the Update menu item was clicked. Version 1.3 also adds the a five day extended forecast and a menu item to update the weather data in the context menu of the main application.

To install the update, exit any running instances of Weather Info System Tray by right clicking on the icon in the system tray and clicking exit.  Then run the installer to update the application.  Download Weather Info System Tray 1.3 here.

Holy Shepherd 50th Anniversary

Sunday, June 26, 2005 8:34 AM

Holy Shepherd Lutheran Church

Today is the 50th anniversary of the signing of the charter forming Holy Shepherd Lutheran Church.  On June 26, 1955, Holy Shepherd was born as a congregation in the American Lutheran Church (now the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America).  While many things have changed, there are still six charter members at the church.  So as we celebrate the past 50 years today, we look forward to working with God for the next 50 as well.

Rocky Flats in the NY Times

Tuesday, June 7, 2005 2:14 PM

Demolition of Building 881 The New York Times ran an article in the Science section today talking about the final phases of the cleanup of Rocky Flats.  The article is really a pretty good summary of the cleanup tasks and the road ahead.  It gets into some of the details of the cleanup levels in the contract and some of the methods used to clean contamination from some of the most dangerous buildings in America.  Click to read "At the Foot of the Rockies, Cleaning a Radioactive Wasteland" in the New York Times.  The photo above is the demolition of Building 881 which was the first building I worked in.

DLX 2005

DLX 2005

This past weekend was the 2005 Denver Lindy Exchange.  Andrea and I had a great time dancing with lindy hoppers from all over the country here in Denver.  I was told by one of the organizers that there were dancers here from 23 states and 5 countries.  Friday night we danced at the Shrine Center Imperial Ballroom to Easy Bill and the Big Beat from 8pm-midnight and then more dancing at the Denver Turnverein from 1am-5am though I left around 3.  Saturday had dancing at the Denver Turnverein from 8pm-5am though we only stayed until about 2:45.  Sunday was more dancing from 8pm-midnight at the Denver Turnverein though many of the out of towners had to head home early for work on Monday.  It was great fun and photos are up on my photo page.
