Once again, it’s Wednesday. It’s been a little busy day today. Kids started school today. The boy started 2nd grade. The girl started 1st. It was a good start. Now I must follow up this good hump day with a good Thursday. Good night.

Good Night Humpday

Today was just another day. It was surprisingly busy, work-wise. Worked out some cost analysis for our dedicated web server. Fine tuned some things with the new company website. Conducted a huge chunk of traffic analysis for the quarter. It went fast.

My Patriotic Duty

It’s the 3rd of July.and I’m doing my patriotic duty by watching Independence Day. Last week, I watched the much anticipated sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence. It was not as enjoyable as the first, to say the least. Aside from its lack of… everything, the primary motivation of the alien race just seemed stupid, almost as stupid as MKS’s aliens in Signs, but that’s another…

To Blaaaaiiiiise

The week, once again, went by swiftly. I managed to get a lot done, with respect to work, but still didn’t manage to get everything I wanted to get done. Time marches on and now there’s just not enough time to even complain about it. Watched an interesting video on the philosopher and all-around rennaisance man, Blaise Pascal. It is was about how his…

Thoughts On Form

Well, maybe not always, but once I began to watch movies with the intensity of a boy who just discovered his dad’s porno stash, it later seemed natural that as I began to develop opinions on what makes a good movie and what doesn’t, I really wanted to create a place to put those thoughts. But I wanted…

Rules For Trailers

Grant L McDonald:The Website is Back

It’s been a while since I had a website under the domain grantlmcdonald.com. It’s been maybe four years. I have a few WordPress.com blogs, but nothing seems quite as sweet as having a site under your own name. “Here’s my website.  It’s all about me!” Am I a company? Not really. I’m just a guy that is in the web development field who’s felt…
