QotD: Expensive Music

Question: What's the most money you've ever spent on music in a single day? My Answer: I once bought a ton of R.E.M. imports on a single day and the grand total was just under $400. I got a lot of good stuff, though! You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for […]

After yesterday's icon comes this revision. We like this a lot more. We were slightly concerned with the cultural significance of a carton of orange juice, as Andy tells me it's used for whey in Austria, but whey isn't offensive, is it? Most of our target audience will be in the US anyway, let's not […]

New iPod Game

There's a new game on your iPod with the 2.1 update: Music Quiz. It's awesome. Five songs are listed, and a short clip of a random song from your iPod is played. A prize counter ticks down as some choices disappear. Choose the right song quickly and get massive points! Or wait and choose between […]

ITMS Link Maker

It feels unusual posting this to the "Computing: General" category, but I wanted to point out that there's now an iTunes LinkMaker. Search for songs, artists, albums, and create links, badges, etc. Great. I also want to publicly prod one person (perhaps he's named Jason) to get Recent Tunes update out. The update will upload […]


Like everyone and their brother, I too have now installed MT-Blacklist. Some things I like, don't like, and want to see changed: I don't like that it's retroactive. I hope no previous comments qualify as spam, because I've deleted any and all spam comments posted to my site. I have none. What if it deletes […]

PulpFiction Icons

Work began on our next product's icons today. The result you see to the right. Very, very, very few people know what this app does (or will do), and my guess is that you won't guess it from the picture over there either. We know now that PulpFiction won't be ready next Friday (for Panther), […]

QotD: Judgment

Question: Do you judge? My Answer: Only the people on Survivor. 🙂 You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

The Z600 and Sucky Cingular

Cingular went GSM in my area a while back. Though I didn't upgrade (they didn't have the Motorola v600 I want), I did note that they had the phones in stock and were gladly selling them to anyone who wanted them. Knowing that they are, indeed, GSM, I ventured over to to see if […]

SpamSieve – Change the Subject!

I use SpamSieve with Entourage and it works beautifully. Sometimes, though, a false positive occurs: email that isn't spam is marked as spam. I routinely check my spam folder to see if any messages have slipped through, but with over 200 spams per day, this is tedious at best. I've emailed Michael the idea, but […]

New Guides

I took my dad's (now mine) old fiberglass rods in to be serviced today. They're great rods - very whippy (at eight feet and with a fairly small butt, the rod guy thought they were fly rods) and I wanted to treat them to some new guides. Especially since one fell out. 🙂 Technology in […]

QotD: Blocking

Question: How many people are in your messaging client's block list? My Answer: One. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

CSI Am Wrong

On Monday's CSI: Miami, which I watched last night after fishing in southern Miami, Horatio Caine and his team tracked down a crocodile that had eaten (post-mortem) a little girl. Jeff Corwin guest starred, and identified a tooth found in the girl's arm as an American Crocodile's, not an alligator's as the team had suspected. […]

Black Point

I went with Charlie today to fish near Black Point Park in southern Miami. I rose at 4am (2 hours after I went to bed), and we grabbed some bait down there. Once we arrived at the park, we had a hell of a time finding the proper yak/canoe ramp. Turns out it's just a […]

QotD: 80s

Question: What's your favorite thing from the 1980s? My Answer: It wasn't the hair. It wasn't the slap-on bracelets. The music, well, it was 80s music (that's good and bad). My favorite thing from the 1980s? I'm going to go with Dallas. It's my current ringtone and the reason I began playing trumpet, after all. […]

Bonefish On

Goin' Bonefishin' tomorrow. Here's a bonefish: Yep. Gonna catch some with Charlie, I think. And if not, maybe some shark or something. Yes, this is Florida fishing! Every time I've gone saltwater fishing I've targeted a different species. Reds, bonefish, tarpon, jacks, snook, trout, barracuda, sharks… they're all here! I haven't even mentioned kings, mackerel, […]
