SpamSieve 2.0

SpamSieve 2.0 is out, and it's got a loooooooooong list of changes. I won't go over them here - you can click the link for yourself. What I will say is "free?" This update is free to registered users of 1.x. Were I Michael Tsai, I'd have had a hard time deciding whether or not […]

QotD: Alert

Question: For the Mac users out there, what is your alert sound? My Answer: Mine is currently "Tink" and has been for over a year. Perhaps I'll change it today, but "Tink" has always been a favorite. It's short and therefore not very annoying. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for […]

About a Boy

I watched About a Boy today. What rubbish! It was funny early on, when Will talked about visiting FART or whatever organization that was just to shag the single "mums," but then it took a decidedly crappy turn and ended up as some lame feel-good (or feel-asleep-out-of-boredom) movie with lots of ugly people (save, of […]

Stupid CSS

I'm very frustrated with CSS right now. I'm sure I'm brain farting, but I can't figure out how to do something and I'm about to give up and use a table. I've got an 85 x 85 image (the site's logo) that will go in the top left corner of a Web page. To the […]

QotD: Romance

Question: If you could have a romance with any fictional character, who would it be? My Answer: I'm going to rule out movies (those not based on books, anyway), because that makes it too easy - I might just pick someone (like Kate Beckinsale's character from Serendipity) because of the actor, not the character. So, […]

Fishing Lake Ida with Ramos

José and I got out on Lake Ida around 10am today - a bit later than I'd like, but when you've got a kid (not me), not everything can suit your damn friend's wishes! 🙂 We launched, we paddled north, and we went right to the spot at which I caught fish last time. I […]

QotD: Racist

Question: Have you ever been called a racist? For what? My Answer: Yes. Most recently, I was called a racist for mentioning the color of some people fishing at a lake. You'll have to read the comments to see what a moron the person alleging the accusation may be. You are encouraged to answer the […]

Queer Eyes

So I've now seen an episode (or three) of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and I've gotta say that the only one who's not totally annoying is the food and wine guy. The others, well, they irk me. It's amusing television, and quite comical at times, but I must say I admire the straight […]

QotD: Pleasurable Sex

Question: If sex were not a pleasurable activity, by what percent do you think the world's population would be smaller? My Answer: 50%. If sex weren't pleasurable, I think that a great many people wouldn't have sex except to have a family or to get more welfare money. "Accident" babies would be gone, teen pregnancy […]

Baltimore 15, Pittsburgh 34

Given that I'm not home on Sundays, I've got to TiVo my Steelers all year and watch them in the evening. No sweat - I don't have to put up with commercials like the rest of you saps! 🙂 Unfortunately, as the Steelers are an AFC team, I do have to put up with the […]

QotD: Super Bowl 2003

Question: Who will win the Super Bowl in 2004? My Answer: Why, the Pittsburgh Steelers, of course! You heard it here first! You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Pete Rose

Question: Should Pete Rose be in the Hall of Fame? Should Shoeless Joe Jackson? My Answer: Yes. Yes. If you need an explanation, then I doubt that any explanation will make any sense to you. 😛 You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Porn

Question: How much porn do you own? My Answer: Owning and watching are two different things. In college, porn was almost like currency - having it meant you could trade it for a CD you wanted to borrow - all sorts of things. As such, I've got about 3 DVDs worth of porn. Where those […]

I bought a Daiwa Capricorn 2500 on August 27. A few days ago, I noticed that they were on sale. I went back to Sports Authority, picked up a Shimano Stradic 6000. Normally $149, it was on sale for $112.49 - a savings of over $37. The Capricorn used to be $114.99, but was now […]

Protandric Hermaphrodites

Interesting: An interesting fact: Snook are protandric hermaphrodites, meaning that many change sex from male to female at some point in their lives. This transition usually occurs between two and seven years of age or when they reach a fork length of 17-30 inches. For this reason, most very large fish are females. That, and […]
