My laptop died on Tuesday so I bought a new 14" HP laptop with 32 GB of express cache and Windows 8. I love the new start screen and I found a nice tool called OlbyTile which lets you create nice looking tiles for your program shortcuts.

I also found a bunch of good icons online, but some of my programs were missing icons, so I made them.

This package includes FastStone Photo Resizer, Finale Notepad, Google Chrome, iTunes, PNG Gauntlet, PuTTYgen, TortoiseSVN, and WampServer.

Update: added Battle for Wesnoth and Finale Songwriter.

I've redesigned the website and I think it looks 1,000 times better. Still working on some pages, especially the home page and photography, while others have been moved around / split up, e.g. "about" is now mostly in "resume" (and resume is now a page and not a direct PDF download).

I added a new tab for my Viper and I'll be adding more for "travel", although I haven't really traveled, I do have a lot of pictures of Chicago, Boston, and London that I want to share. I intend the website to be more of a place where family/friends can keep updated, and less of a job portfolio focus.

And finally, make sure you check it out on your phone! That's right, andrewtweber.com is now mobile-friendly.

FINALLY. I've been waiting twenty-four years for this day. I bought a 2005 Viper SRT/10 this weekend and will be picking her up this week! I can't wait and I've lost hours of sleep in anticipation. Now taking suggestions for names and custom plates.

Yesterday I was having a discussion with a couple people about what cars today will be future classics and appreciate in value. My predictions are:

  • 1992 Dodge Viper RT/10
  • 1996 Dodge Viper GTS (blue/white)
  • Ferrari 550 Barchetta
  • Ferrari Challenge Stradale
  • BMW Z8
  • Ford GT

If you have the money, go buy them now :) You'll thank me later.
