At 7:12 PM Central time I finished my Hebrew final and therefore completed my summer Hebrew class. Oh the sense of freedom. Unfortunately, that freedom will only last a week since the fall semester starts September 5th. However, for now I can rest in the sense of accomplishment I have right now from completing the class.

Also in the meantime, I’ll get to hang out around St. Louis with my Dad who is arriving tomorrow for a visit. I should finally get to see what the city has to offer. Go up the Arch, Science Center, Zoo, Art museum, etc. Not to mention it will be cool just to see my Dad.

Last night I went to Schnucks to get some milk and I came home with a trunk full of groceries. Okay, so I did intend to pick up a bunch of other stuff, although I didn’t have anything specific in mind. But that’s not the point. When I got home I realized something. When it comes to grocery shopping, I’m a lot like my Mom in that there is no such thing as a quick trip to the supermarket.

Can you blame me though? I mean I walk in to the supermarket, start winding through the aisles, and there’s stuff on sale everywhere. Everywhere I turn I can find something I’ll eat (or otherwise consume, if it’s not a food product) eventually. Then, if I happen to have a coupon for the item it’s even better. I feel compelled to go through every aisle (except the pet food and baby aisles) scouting out the best deals. Call me frugal if you will, but I think that’s a good quality… even if it does take me two hours to get a gallon of milk.

The Steve Zone 2001 rocked. It was my best web design effort at the time I created it and for some time after. However it was getting a little old. The content that I wanted to add was stretching the design a bit too much. The maintenance of the Captain’s Log was getting rather tedious since for every new entry I wrote I had to manually archive it and update the archive listing. My site needed some automation to make things easier. Plus, it’s no longer 2001.

And so I set out to make a whole new website.

I needed automation and so that meant that I needed CGI, PHP, & MySQL. Free web space from Apple wasn’t going to cut the mustard anymore. I needed a full-featured web host.
