This evening's haul from The Country Place: Pears, Yello Delicious apples, a few Rome apples, Celeste figs, scuppernongs. I'll wash the apples and pears and put them in the fridge. Next week I'll get the cider press set up. I'll slice the digs and freeze them. I'll munch on the early scupps a...

I set up this security camera at my mom's house and, just for fun, placed it below her front steps and pointed it outward. If the camera senses motion, it captures a handful of images. And here is a sampling of what it has captured. How many species can you count? 4/29/2012 4:08:00 AM 4/2...

There are a number of online blood alcohol concentration calculators out there, but none (that I could find) that were optimized for mobile devices. After all, who needs a BAC calculator when they're sitting at home at their computer surfing the web? Seems to me like the time someone needs somethi...

Today I added a new recording to my small, but slowly-but-surely growing list of original mp3's available for listening on DavesWeb.  This Old House is a love song for my now-117-year-old abode.  It's a love/hate relationship because this house has issues:  it's drafty, doors are warped and sagging,...

We know that many of you have been trying to view some of our old photos in our Gallery.  We're happy that our Gallery is back online now, although in a slightly different spot.  Included in the Gallery are some photos that some folks seem to like and other folks seem to not like.  I think the reaso...

I guess I have been a lucky guy over the years because it seems like I can count on one hand the times I've been the victim of a computer virus infection. I got one last week that was rather embarassing. It started with a message from a friend on Facebook:Heey! You are on TV!

I found an odd looking request in my log files: "/default.asp?guid=road_to_the_derby200303110002; declare%20@s%20varchar(4000);set%20@s=cast(0x4465434c 417265204054207641726368415228323535292c4063205641 52436861522832353529204445634c415245207461426c655f 637552736f7220635552734f...

I have found some pretty strange things in my server logs lately. Below, I'll describe a series of requests that looked like something/someone was probing and looking for vulnerabilities on my site. Not that there's anything here worth stealing. More likely, they were looking for a machin...

I know I violated one of my old web rules ("Once you put a web page online at a specific Url, never break that Url."), but I removed a lot of content when I re-built this site's back-end recently. Not that this site ever had a huge amount of content. But I broke a number of links to web pa...
