As of yesterday, Amy and I have been married for six years, and I somehow never got around to actually saying the words, “happy anniversary.”
Her name is Duffie Miller. I knew her first as Duffie Downing. She was named for her grandmother, who was an elementary teacher at our school. Amy, in her blog post termed Duffie’s siblings as “ragtag.” Duffie would probably smile at that description. She was the older of two biological children born to a couple that adopted (I think) 10 more children, spread in age from several years older to several years younger than Duffie and me (Duffie and I were in the same grade in school). I don’t remember when I first met her. It was certainly some time in elementary school (after I transferred to Central for the beginning of fourth grade). It was probably when we started beginner band together in fifth grade.
Slashdot does has useful information occasionally. Today, they led me to an article over at Wired (archived copy on archive.org) that has links to some pretty cool Mozilla (including Firefox) plugins.
My favorites so far are
Googlebar (link defunct) and ieview. I’ll probably also end up trying BugMeNot (link defunct) before I’m done.
