All of them!

If I could monetize planes and conveyor belts I'd be rich!
That page is still getting traffic. Maybe that proves that there IS an idiot born every minute. 😛

I really hope to be able to afford a Tesla (i.e. I hope they become less expensive) some day, but these three posts tell an interesting tale of media bias. Why a journalist would be biased against electric cars I have no idea, but… there you have it.

In conclusion, Brooks has a shoe with a great deal of potential in the PureDrift. The first incarnation has some shortcomings that I was able to remedy with an insole swap, but I think only some minor tweaks would be required to take this shoe to another level in future incarnations. I’d redesign the integrated footbed to remove seams along the margins, soften the sole just a tad, or include a slightly beefier insole (like the current PureCadence 2 insole). With the tweak I made, I foresee this shoe remaining on my active rack for quite awhile!
The rest of the review is here.

This article talks about how to get rid of duplicate entries in the "Open With…" contextual menu.
I've had this command in my nightly (user) cron file for many months now:
# Flush Launch Services Cache
LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user

Wow. I hadn't ever heard of this.

Seriously, it's 2013. I have 32 GB of RAM. And Safari still craps out all the time and has to reload every page I've loaded with as few as 20 tabs open.
Rarely can you even close tabs to rectify the situation. It seems like once it gets into that state it won't let you get out of it very easily.
Clearing the cache regularly doesn't seem to help.
It's 2013 and we have Mac OS X 10.8 and Safari 6.x. C'mon, people, figure this crap out.

Why would iMovie's modal "Publishing to YouTube" window ever need to go fullscreen?

Talk about a bug that shouldn't exist, right?
Fortunately, there's an easy fix: type
purge into your Terminal window.

I was in the first 20% of people to support the Pebble Kickstarter campaign. I chose a black and a white Pebble (one is a gift for a friend), and my address has been checked promptly as well.
I've voted, I've chosen colors quickly, etc.
- Perhaps so I can sell it as it doesn't seem to have advanced much in terms of software since it was conceived…↩

Not sure what took so long, but I'm happy. Privacy is respected as well.

Sick of having your Yankee Candles burn out in the middle leaving walls of wax along the sides? The overpriced candle toppers (you can find them for about $8 if you look long enough) work wonders:
And I care so little about this I'm not going to resize or rotate.

Today's my father's birthday.
I haven't talked to him in years. There was an awkward Christmas after the Fourth of July kicking out, and not much after that… You only owe family so much, and can only be told you're no longer considered a son before you realize that things are probably better this way.
But I'm not a fan of putting negativity into the world unnecessarily, and nobody deserves to suffer poor health, so I hope he's doing well, and hope that my mother's doing well too. Happy birthday, Rich.
