QotD: Heinna

Question: Jenna or Heidi? My Answer: Gotta go with the girl from Pittsburgh, hands down. Mmmmm, brunettes. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Not one, but both Heidi and Jenna (together) are in Playboy next month. Yes, both. If only Playboy could have found a redhead to complete the trio… For what it's worth (jack squat, I know), Jenna is soooooo much more attractive. She's got natural breasts and brown hair. She's stuck up (or maybe she's overcome […]

QotD: Sports Heroes

Question: If you could have dinner with three sports stars of your choosing, who would they be? My Answer: I would choose Roberto Clemente, Ty Cobb, and Arnold Palmer, mainly because, while I admire each of them, I never got to see them play. They're the first three that came to mind - each played […]

DVC PD-150

Using a $3500 DV camera to video conference feels very weird. I'll be picking up an iSight as soon as possible, and I'm hopeful that my mom does as well. It has a Mic, I guess, but I'm curious if I can use that (on my tower) for general-purpose "microphoning." What to do with my […]

Many people seem to think that an entire OS needs to be rewritten when the processors on which it runs switch from 32 to 64 bit. From what (very little) I know about OS and software development, that's simply not true. The primary reason to move an OS to a 64-bit processor is to allow […]

QotD: Kid’s Games

Question: What's your favorite playground game? My Answer: I used to be pretty damn good (and enjoy tremendously) the game "foursquare." You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Element vs. Aztek

I'm considering getting a Honda Element to replace my 2001 Aztek. The main factor: I could probably get my car payments down to 2/3 the current cost. Honda seems to have a good reputation for building solid, dependable cars, so that's a good thing too (I've had no troubles with Pontiacs in the past, nor […]

QotD: Cars

Question: What's the best car ever? My Answer: I'm not much of a car guy, so I'll stick with the egotistical answer: whichever one I own at that given moment. Of course it's the best - I bought it! 🙂 But really, hmmmm… '67 Mustang? Perhaps. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the […]

QotD: Blood

Question: If you had to describe your worst experience with blood, what would it be? My Answer: I once split my head open (at my sister's third birthday party) on the cement corner of my grandparents' garage. I tripped on my (too-long) Donkey Kong shoelaces and BAM!!! The blood began pouring. It was only a […]

QotD: Reincarnation

Question: If you were to be reincarnated as someone you know, who would it be? My Answer: I have no idea. If I could take the knowledge I know now with me, I'd be reincarnated as one of my many very attractive female friends. Knowing how easy it is to manipulate men would serve me […]

Advanced Cocoa

Aaron's written a new book, Core Mac OS X And Unix Programming (subtitled "Master Darwin and the Core Technologies"). I snagged a copy and am going to have a look at it in the next few days and weeks. This weekend especially. Besides, maybe I can snag a few ideas…

UT 2003 – Kinda

Unreal Tournament 2003 is out now, and I picked up my copy today. There's already a bug fix… for the installer! Some QA they have going on there, eh? What's worse is that it took me fifteen tries or so to get the installer to run at all, because my installer was crashing just after […]

QotD: Hard Positions

Question: If you had to name the hardest position to play in sports, what would you say it is? My Answer: I think the people moving the brooms on a curling team have it pretty rough! Okay, I was joking. I've played several sports, and the toughest sport is golf, by far, but that's not […]

FTPeel PB 2 Out

As promised, FTPeel Public Beta 2 is now available. A big change list is available. Features to come before release (in a month or so) include: "Edit in BBEdit" functionality. More AppleScripting. Instant toggling between column/list views. A lot more… SFTP will be pushed back until a 1.1 release, most likely. Sorry. 🙁


I don't think it sucks, but I would only pay $1,000 for a Segway. I have absolutely no use or need for one. I walk to a few places - and would continue to walk to them if I had a Segway. It'd be nothing more than an expensive toy. I can't use it at […]
