QotD: Fastest

Question: What's the fastest you've ever travelled in a car? Were you at the wheel?

My Answer: 127 and yes. And if I told you in what car you wouldn't believe me.

Lots of Driving

Tomorrow I'm driving about 2 1/2 hours to Flamingo, FL to get in some tarpon fishing. Wednesday I'm driving about 2 1/2 hours north to Daytona Beach and Mosquito Lagoon to get in some redfish fishing. That's about 600 miles in two days. I'll wake up at 4:30am and get back home around 10pm. And these are my days off!

I'm heading out tomorrow with a guy named Charlie in Everglades National Park. He said that he can't find any snook, but he's catching a lot of tarpon. "Only 15 or 20 lbs" he said. Heh! That's a big steelhead, so hey, I'm ready and rarin'! Wednesday I'm heading out with Mike of Paddle and I hope I can remember to take the camera(s).

Cleveland 33, Pittsburgh 13

The shine is off of Tommy Maddox. Several bad decisions, several bad throws, and a completely absent running game left the Steelers not in Steel Town this evening, but in Shit Town. Everywhere you looked, the Steelers looked pathetic. The offensive line couldn't hold off a four-man rush. Zereoue couldn't hit a hole without trying a spin move to save his life. The secondary couldn't defend, and Maddox couldn't hit open receivers. Heck, the receives could barely get open.

Three touchdowns run back for touchdowns this year from Maddox. 37 points to the Browns of all teams. They're not that good a team. Tim Couch played like Tommy Maddox should be playing, completing pretty much every pass he threw. I can barely remember a pass completed by Maddox.

Pathetic. The season isn't over by a long stretch, but at 2-3 and going downhill, I'm not terribly optimistic.

GSM… Tomorrow?

A week ago I wrote about how Cingular would be GSM in a week where I live. Good thing, too, as I just snapped the antenna off of my reliable, trusty Motorola v60. While the v600 isn't out yet (the phone I really want), I imagine I may be picking up a T616 to tide me over.

I don't know how it broke off. I went to answer it, and it cut out with a "no service" light, and only then did I notice that the antenna (and some of the phone into which it fits) was missing. It didn't just unscrew - it broke off, taking part of its joint mate with it. I doubt the insurance I've got on the phone (through Cingular) covers that stuff, does it?

Fuck. I was going to get rid of it, but not like this, and not this soon. Will Cingulars even have GSM phones? Will I have to get by with some lame-ass TDMA phone until the v600 becomes available? What to do? Ugh. >:-o

QotD: Firewire

Question: How many Firewire devices are hooked up to your computer?

My Answer: Six or seven, depending on where my DV camera is at the moment.

QotD: Anyone

Question: If you could be anyone for a day, who would you be?

My Answer: I haven't got a clue. Part of me wants to say George W. Bush, so that I could "fix" certain things. Part of me wants to say Britney Spears, so that I could sleep with myself (when I got back into my body, I'd sure have some stories to tell!). Hugh Hefner, perhaps. I just don't know. I'm pretty happy as me, most days.

QotD: Letdown

Question: What's been the biggest letdown of your life?

My Answer: Two word: Neil O'Donnell. Need some more words? Super Bowl XXX. I guess it's a good thing if the biggest letdown of my life is a game.

Hubba Hubba

Ahhhh, Britney:


Now she's posing in Esquire, and the cover (above) copies a 1966 pose by actress Angie Dickinson for the November issue of Esquire.

Like I've said before, she may have a dumb stance on politics or only a slightly better than average ability to sing, but she's well above average on the looks scale.

QotD: Movie Lines

Question: Do you quote movie lines often? What's your favorite?

My Answer: Can't say I have a favorite, but as a guy, I do my part to repeat as many movie lines as possible, at every opportunity. Very few women seem to be "into" this sort of thing, so I've learned it's best not to repeat movie lines to them as much as the humor is most often entirely lost.

FTPeel 1.0.1

ftpeelicon.gifFTPeel 1.0.1 is out. The changelog is quite extensive, with fixes, improvements, and new features. No SFTP support - that's coming in a free 1.1 update - but some very nice touches, some nagging things gone, and overall, a very solid update. Everyone is encouraged to update (or buy for the first time of course!).

Nick did most of the work on this while I continue working on a freelance project with Andy. Soon, he and I will get back to working on PulpFiction and MailDrop 2.

Chin Monkeys

Chin Monkeys was one of the funniest things I've seen this year! Ed was good this week. West Wing felt a little cobbled together - it didn't have the cohesiveness of most other episodes, and it felt rushed at the end when they found Zoey and reinstated Bartlet. It was still a good episode, and hopefully they'll get back to their wisecracking ways shortly. Next week, who knows, Leo pisses some people off I guess? William Devane becomes the VP? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

But man, those Chin Monkeys were outrageous!!!

eBay Scam

Nearly two weeks ago I won an eBay auction for a GPS. I promptly paid - within minutes of the auction closing - plus $18 for USPS priority shipping and $5 for insurance. Today, my money was refunded to me.

On the 23rd, my item was shipped. The shipper/seller did not provide a tracking number as is given to those who ship USPS priority (with insurance). The "your item shipped" email stated that I should contact them if my item was not received within "7 business days" (substantially longer than USPS priority mail). I did so last night. My auction was one of several similar auctions running at the same time by the same seller.

Mayan Cichlids

I went to bed around 3 this morning, with the alarm set for 6:00. Around 7:45, I woke up. I vaguely recalled shutting off the alarm. So much for being on the lake at the crack of dawn.

Around noon I got my stuff together and headed over to Lake Ida, where I've previously fished alone and with José. On both occasions (and one other to which I don't feel like linking) I caught a "mystery fish" of some kind. See the previous articles for an image or two.

QotD: Bluetooth

Question: Do you have Bluetooth anything?

My Answer: I have a Bluetooth PowerBook. I have Bluetooth G5. I have a Bluetooth module (USB) that I used to use on my dual G4. You want it? $25 and it's yours. For the USB module, not the dual G4. Once again, a technology flounders until Apple takes up the charge.
