QotD: Freezing Looks

Question: If you could freeze your mate's looks at any age while you grew older, what age would it be? My Answer: 25. I don't have a mate, so this is an arbitrary assignment. I'm 25 now, and women about my age look as good as they've ever looked (without looking 18), so I'm going […]


I think I'm going to buy a kayak. Specifically, I think I'm going to buy the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 seen at right (though I think I'll get it in yellow). I had previously been looking at the Riot, but the Tarpon line is a bit more "professional." I hesitate to use that word - […]

I think I'll be returning the T610 to T-Mobile very shortly (in about three days). The reasons? There are three: The screen is ass when I'm outside. Absolute ass. Even in the shade you can barely see it, and in any variety of sunlight, just forget it. I picked the highest contrast theme possible, and […]

Climbing Again: 5.8 is Me

Gabe and I finally went climbing again after nearly a two month absense from the wall-scaling world. Long story short: "ouch" and "ugh." The ouch: I was attempting a 9.1 climb with a very slanted foothold. I went for a reach, my foot slipped off and out, and then my foot (specifically my big toe) […]

QotD: Climbing

Question: What's the most difficult thing you've ever had to climb? My Answer: I climbed Crested Butte Mountain (if that's the name of it?) in Crested Butte, Colorado. I was quite young, and the last 500 feet up were mostly rocks, and so that made for an interesting climb. According to my parents I "scampered […]

My New Cell Phone

"My New Cell Phone" is one of the lamest damn titles I've ever put on my blog. Like any of you care. Why am I even assuming that anyone reads this drivel? Whatever, okay, I'll console myself by pretending that I am my own audience. I am - the me in the future will wonder […]

QotD: Phones

Question: How many phones do you own and use? My Answer: My Cingular/Motorola phone, my T-Mobile/Danger phone (don't really use it), and my home phone. That's three and two, respectively. My home phone has a second handset if you want to count that one too. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day […]

Cingular = Crappy Phones

Y'know, I like Cingular. I really do. They've got good coverage, decent rates, and sales offices all over. They're not too bad. They're certainly not Verizon, that's for sure! They suck at one important thing, however: phone choice. I got my Motorola V60 last March or so, and it's still the best phone they offer. […]

I kid you not. Updates to my blog in the next few days will now be non-existent. Gotta do as much preventative medicine as possible. Anyone willing to contribute good porn (for my health, dammit!!!) should send care packages to… 😀

NeXT Hardware

I'm looking to buy a NeXT Cube or Slab. I'd like it to run OpenStep 4.2 and be in good (working) condition. I'll pay for it, obviously, and I'm putting a note here on my blog because searches on eBay for "next slab" really don't turn up very many appropriate results! 🙂 Plus, I know […]

FTPeel PB 3 Out

FTPeel Public Beta 3 can be downloaded by clicking the picture. This one's got a lot of improvements and bug fixes, some of which I'll list here. Bug fixes: Fixed a crash that sometimes occurred after closing a document when some other activity was occurring (like a download was going or a directory was being […]

QotD: Hairless

Question: Would you rather a girl be completely hairless or not shave at all? My Answer: Not shaving at all means you've got three bushes where you normally don't want 'em: two under the armpits and one in the legpit (for lack of an, uhhh, appropriate term). Shaving completely means hair and eyebrows too - […]

Keira Knightley… Or Not

I hate spam. Sometimes, however, it makes me chuckle: From: Keira Knightly <> To: Subject: ADV: Pirates of the Caribbean Stars Naked! - Must be 18 Years or Older Uhhh, right. Oh well. If the real Keira ever wants to email me, she should feel free. 😉

Mail (the app) on Mac OS X uses standard mbox files to store its messages. Given this, how hard would it be to write a webmail client that literally served up your local mboxes. When I'm at a friend's house, how great would it be to log into my machine with a simple browser and […]

QotD: Screensavers

Question: What's your favorite current and all-time screensaver? My Answer: My favorite current one varies. I change my screensaver about once a week. Sometimes it's the Matrix one. Sometimes it's Flurry (not the bundled one, the better one with more streams). Sometimes it's seasonal (with snowflakes). My favorite screensaver of all time? It's gotta be […]
