Survivor 6.6

I'll be a bit shorter this week, I think. Today I'm preparing my taxes. Joy. 🙁 As you'll see, this week can best be described in one word: Lame. Christy was shocked at Heidi's turning, but not upset? Lame. Roger responds to Christy's question about "why Jeanne and not me?" Dave is upset with the […]

The Falls

I have certain pals, let's name them Gabe and Daria, who are married and live near to me. I've been pals with them for quite some time now, six or seven years really, though until the past two years I hadn't really spent much time with them. They were an Internet pal-ship, and Daria was […]

Internet Inventor Joins Apple!

The man who invented the Internet has joined Apple! CUPERTINO, California - March 19, 2003 - Apple® today announced that Albert Gore Jr., the former Vice President of the United States, has joined the Company's Board of Directors. Mr. Gore was elected at Apple's board meeting today. iGore in 2004! Some /.er says "Excellent! This […]

I'm watching this week's American Idol nearly a day late. Before I begin I'd like to point out that even David Hyatt likes Clay! Go Clay. 🙂 Ryan egging on the audience to boo? Childish. The shots of Randy? Classic good stuff. Funny funny funny. Oh well. Guest starring this week? Gladys Knight - good […]

Relationship Strain

Says Microsoft's Ho (said with a grin) Robert Scoble: Being a geek in Silicon Valley is hell on relationships. The computer has its attractions, believe me. It doesn't yell. It doesn't scream. It doesn't make me do chores. It doesn't bring up past emotional pain. On the other hand, there are a few things a […]

Note to Self

Note to self: grow some damn balls man. Just do it. It doesn't matter if it's in the middle of a sentence, or if the time doesn't seem exactly right, because it may never be, but just do it. The next time you get a chance, do it. And don't ask first, because although it […]

Dream: Golf Scramble

I had another dream last night, and since I'm documenting them here on this diary journal blog, well, here goes. I had the dream at about 2am (I've heard that most dreams are "realtime") and woke up at about 3am. As such, it's now 8am and I may not remember as much as I did […]

F = ma

If "a great time" is F, and m is "me," solve for a. The answer? My fabulous* new… physics partner. Heh. I spent time ostensibly helping someone with some physics last night. She's got a test coming up very shortly, and though it was intro physics, and though I'd spent no less than four solid […]


When I wrote about TypeIt4Me the other day I didn't realize I'd not yet written about LaunchBar except in passing, so here's a post dedicated to LaunchBar. This Tidbits review summarizes what I could say quite nicely, and TypeIt4Me and LaunchBar form such a killer duo that I couldn't imagine life without them. In fact, […]

French Kissing

Je parle français. I'm sitting here eating French bread, doing work, and thinking about french kissing. Why? Cuz I'm eating French bread and I'll be damned if I'm going to go around "freedom kissing" or eating "freedom bread." As to why I capitalize French in bread but not in kissing, I don't know. Incidentally, one […]

My Very Own Coke Machine

Very very very tempting. From Ars technica. Very tempting. Let's just say I've put this on a bookmark list that I review very very frequently… Has anyone done this? I really doubt it. I should try to cut back, instead. It can't be good for me. But still, very very tempting.

The Year of Cocoa

You're gonna have to read the extended entry to get all of this one, because I can't trust MacFixIt to have a "permanent link" for this thing… so the full quote is here (below). No comments on this, though I will say Wil's opinion is certainly well-founded in fact. In our first installment of a […]

Pierre, On; Charles, Off

I agree with Pierre and not with Charles. I never read AppleLust, and thanks to Charles Moore, I won't. Those two pages will be the last I shall visit for the foreseeable future. Why? A cogent response is found here. I've said numerous times on this site that I'm fairly non-political or apolitical, and frankly, […]

Knight Takes No Pay

From 37 Signals I found a story about Bobby Knight turning down his $250,000 salary for failure to perform: "I'm just not at all satisfied with what transpired with our team in terms of our fundamental execution," Knight told The Dallas Morning News for its online edition." I don't think it's anybody's fault but mine. […]

Support the Troops

My friend Daria's finished putting together a Web site at the request of a client: I Support Our Troops .US is ready for your digital signature. If you want to link to them, do so using either of these badges. Whatever we may think about where our troops are sent, or what they are asked […]
