Seen on a mailing list: There are better solutions out there. After doing ColdFusion work for over a year now, I would be *seriously* bummed if I had to go back to a working with a wordy scripting language like PHP or VB ASP. Uh huh, no. Gabe and I once quoted someone a $15,000 […]

QotD: Best of Women

Question: What's the best thing about women? My Answer: Cop-out answer: there's no one thing. Each woman has her own unique qualities. Real "I'm being forced to answer my own question properly" answer: they're not men. What do I mean? That they have a whole different approach to life. I think that if men and […]

Women, Or the Lack Thereof

Erik: But like I said, it's fun to be alone too sometimes. Friend: Well, I'm alone 90% of the time, I know what it's like. Erik: I'm in a sappy mood tonight man as well, I could use a girl around sometimes. Erik: I'm alone just as much, you know that. Erik: Get a dog. […]

QotD: Diet

Question: If you had to characterize your diet in one word, what would that word be? My Answer: Meat. And don't go taking that any weird ways, you perverts. 🙂 You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Kayaking Loxahatchee

Today, while wrapping things up at a client meeting, the talk turned to kayaking. I mentioned that I'd just picked up a kayak and my clients, having been adventurous sea touring kayakers before they moved to Florida, gave me some good tips on locations nearby. One of those locations was Loxahatchee National Park, about 15 […]

FTPeel 1.0

FTPeel 1.0 is out. You can buy it, try it, or learn more about it. I would like to give a big thumbs up to Nick Zitzmann, who's worked tirelessly on FTPeel the past few months. After I handed over a code base - and a long list of things yet to be done - […]

QotD: Star Wars

Question: If you could be any Star Wars character, who would you be, and why? My Answer: I'd choose not to be a Star Wars character. Rather, I'd choose to be a real-world person who could somehow convince George Lucas to hire someone to write the scripts. That way, we wouldn't end up with lines […]

Speaking of Grammar…

My previous post reminded me of a sign I saw outside of the Sam Snead Bar in the Palm Beach International Airport when I was waiting to pick up my mother and grandma last Thursday. The sign, very professionally designed, said something like: Get Your's Today! How many people making more than $50,000/year let that […]

I Speaks Good and Runs Intel

This is too good to pass up. It's an interview with Intel VP Pat Gelsinger. Here are some good quotes. If you're a fan of grammar, well, prepare to wince.

QotD: IQ

Question: What is your IQ? Do you feel it's accurate? Do you feel it's the strongest factor in a person's ability to succeed, and if not, what is? My Answer: 150. My low was a 142, my high a 164 (which I don't quite believe at all). Either way I'm in the top 1% or […]

Got My Kayak

I dropped off my mother and my grandmother at the airport today, their visit having come to an end. I then went to pick up my kayak. All three items arrived home safely. You can see the kayak on my .Mac homepage. As you can tell from the first three shots, I didn't even take […]

Fred and Victoria

I have no idea what this is, but I can tell you that Fred and Victoria are both involved, as are a bunch of skimpy bikinis and power tools.

QotD: Countries

Question: How many countries have you visited? My Answer: All of three: the United States of America (duh), Canada, and France. I didn't even have a layover in Portugal or anything. 🙁 You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Pop Culture

Question: What's your biggest pop culture sin? My Answer: I suppose 80s music may be mine. I dig it. No, I don't think it's artistic or "good music" but it's typically fun, upbeat, mindless stuff to which you can work. I listen to 80s music, well, let's just say more than someone sitting around in […]

July 2003 Zeitgeist

Every month (since February) I post my site's referral search terms (not what people search for on my site). It's an interesting peek that illustrates "how people are finding me." Here's July's…
