Welcome to my on-line home. This is my personal website, designed, built, and edited entirely by me. This is my way of staying connected both to those whom I know and with those I have not yet met who may share similar interests. Please drop me a note if something on this site has proved useful to you. Enjoy!
Forza Minardi!: The Inside Story of the Little Team Which Took on the Giants of F1, is a new book by Simon Vigar. It covers the best-loved team in Formula One, and the drivers that have started there, such as Fisichella, Trulli, Webber and the youngest ever World Champion Alonso. The book is very well done, and features some photos from members of Minardi Club San Francisco, myself included.
Meet Our New Puppy Finn
We finally got our puppy, and couldn't be more excited or proud. His name is Finn, and you can check out photos of him in the updated photo gallery. He is quite a handful, but we love him to death. You can see the whole litter courtesy of MadHouse MiniBulls.
I was in the March 2007 (15.03 for those faithful readers) issue of Wired Magazine. Not quite the world changing, iconoclast, misanthropic, tech boy wonder cover profile that I've dreamed about, but my name is in print. See the Making the Video: Hair Band Edition section of Rants + Raves.
Pipe Bed Lives
Believe or not, the Pipe Bed that I built several years ago has new life. It was blogged about by Phillip Torrone on MAKE: Blog. You can also buy a kit from Simplified Building Concepts for not much more than it costs to buy the materials yourself. If you'd like to learn how to build your own, I've posted instructions for how it was done on the Instructables web site.
We'd like your help getting our semi-retarded cat Phillip immortalized on a Jones soda label. Just go to the Jones Soda gallery and if you find it entertaining give it a "10=Wow" rating and submit your vote.
Feel free to forward to anyone you think might be amused. Free Jones soda for everyone if we get accepted! (OK. Just people we know. Not the entire Internet. Sorry.) I highly recommend Berry Lemonade. Phlippy appreciates your support! Hope all is well!
