I make software and sometimes other things.


Due to Blogger's termination of support for FTP, this blog is no longer active.

It is possible that some links from here, particularly those within the site, are now broken. If you encounter one of those, your best bet is to go to the new front page and hunt for it from there.

Most, but not all, of the blog's posts are on this page; the archives are here.


Due to the nature of my work, I keep a calendar on my desk at work that is separate from my various personal calendar and note-taking machinery.

Initially I used a standard month-at-a-glance calendar, but I found it a nuisance writing things inside of little boxes. Then I switched to a linear perpetual calendar (similar to this) - basically just a lined, numbered list - but found that in locating today on the page, I often don't know the date exactly, but rely on the day of the week as an indexing cue.

So what I came up with was a list format, but with the day numbers offset according to the day of the week. Here is this month's in PDF form: weekdays only, which is what I use, or with the full week. One of these days I may automate the generation of these, but in the meantime I'll try to post each month's as I generate it for myself.

No sooner had I posted this than I ran across a similar (but prettier) design from Amy Marcella (via Oh So Beautiful Paper).

Update: Here's December, weekdays only and full week. If anyone uses these, please make a comment to that effect, as otherwise I won't bother posting subsequent months.
