Kayaking in Jupiter

José and I today went to Jupiter, FL to embark on a kayak adventure. I rented him a kayak - his birthday present a few days after the fact - and we set off at about 11am. Our route: Start at the JOC (Jupiter Outdoor Center) Travel to the west, north, east, and north again […]

QotD: Serenade

Question: If every night you could have one singer serenade you, who would that singer be? My Answer: None of the pop stars count. Celine Dion is out, regardless of the number of ballads she's taken to the top of the charts. I don't know enough about the classic singers to make an educated choice. […]

QotD: Country Girls

Question: What country produces the best looking women? My Answer: The good old United States of America! That, or Colombia. Or Italy. Or Paris. Or Sweden. Spain, maybe? You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Effortless Improvement

Etan pointed me at Effortless Improvement, which says: Effortless Improvement uses subliminal messaging to aid in the cure of excess weight, low self esteem, addiction and much more, while you use your Macintosh. I'm giving it a go on my Mac right now. So far, though, no nubile Swiss women have appeared at my doorway. […]

Damn Madden

So as I just said not too long ago, I'm picking up a copy of Madden 2004 for my PS2 tomorrow. Only after having laid down the money for the game do I bother to read the reviews, and here's what I find: Speaking of finances, once the preseason is completed, that's when you're able […]


Some people are not content just to paddle their kayaks and catch a bass or two. Nooooooo sir! Some people like to catch shark on their kayak. Yep - thresher shark to be specific. We don't have many sharks over here (that I know of - I could be completely wrong), but we have got […]

Midnight Club II

Picked up a copy of Midnight Club II tonight for the PS2. You can play it online, and Rob and his nephew already have copies. I'll have to play a little tonight if I can. I pre-ordered Madden 2004 for the PS2 (screw Nintendo - I'd have bought it for the GameCube if I could […]

PGP and iWipe

Sometimes life is cool. Sometimes Philip Zimmermann emails you about one of your products. Sometimes that day is today.

Bad Boys II

Though it seems that some people think very little of Bad Boys II, I am going to see it for II reasons: The father of a friend of mine wired the house that explodes (in West Palm Beach, though the movie leads you to believe it's in Miami). The house through which someone drives a […]

QotD: Color Elimination

Question: If you could eliminate one main color (purple, green, blue, red, black, white, brown, etc.) from existence, what color would get the heave-ho? My Answer: I'm going to have to go with orange. Even though it's one of my favorite colors, I think red and yellow could more than make up for its loss. […]

Rich vs. Richer

Call me a jackass (no, really), but I love it when rich people act like children. It somehow makes the world seem a bit more fair. "It's the billionaires fighting the millionaires," Jennings says. "The haves vs. the have-mores -- fun for the press," La Costa Beach homeowner Jodi Siegler says. The debate? Whether - […]

QotD: Consent

Question: If you could set a national age of consent, what would it be? My Answer: Though I know far too many people who only half-jokingly say things like "if there's grass in the field, play ball," my answer is a very solid, very firm "18." You are encouraged to answer the Question of the […]


Two things I learned today: You can not ship pornographic movies to the state of Florida (and a few other states). Sex and the City is pornography. In other words, I attempted to pre-order an entire collection of Sex and the City DVDs and was told by the DVD site (I won't say which) that […]

Old Adium Logs

This script made short work of 58 "out of date" Adium log folders: property logsFolder : "Gaia:Users:iacas:Library:Application Support:Adium:Users:iacas:Logs" set cutoffDate to ( (current date) - (90 * days) ) tell application "Finder" set folderList to (folders of folder logsFolder) repeat with i from 1 to count of folderList set AliasPath to item i of folderList […]

Kayak Lessons

Some things I learned tonight on the Apartment Pond as I will now call the pond in the middle of my apartment complex: If you paddle really hard around in a circle, you can catch your own wake (until you tire out). I need scupper plugs for a few of my scuppers. I need a […]
