QotD: Fastest

Question: What's the fastest you've ever travelled in a car? Were you at the wheel? My Answer: 127 and yes. And if I told you in what car you wouldn't believe me. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Lots of Driving

Tomorrow I'm driving about 2 1/2 hours to Flamingo, FL to get in some tarpon fishing. Wednesday I'm driving about 2 1/2 hours north to Daytona Beach and Mosquito Lagoon to get in some redfish fishing. That's about 600 miles in two days. I'll wake up at 4:30am and get back home around 10pm. And […]

The shine is off of Tommy Maddox. Several bad decisions, several bad throws, and a completely absent running game left the Steelers not in Steel Town this evening, but in Shit Town. Everywhere you looked, the Steelers looked pathetic. The offensive line couldn't hold off a four-man rush. Zereoue couldn't hit a hole without trying […]

GSM… Tomorrow?

A week ago I wrote about how Cingular would be GSM in a week where I live. Good thing, too, as I just snapped the antenna off of my reliable, trusty Motorola v60. While the v600 isn't out yet (the phone I really want), I imagine I may be picking up a T616 to tide […]

QotD: Firewire

Question: How many Firewire devices are hooked up to your computer? My Answer: Six or seven, depending on where my DV camera is at the moment. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Anyone

Question: If you could be anyone for a day, who would you be? My Answer: I haven't got a clue. Part of me wants to say George W. Bush, so that I could "fix" certain things. Part of me wants to say Britney Spears, so that I could sleep with myself (when I got back […]

QotD: Letdown

Question: What's been the biggest letdown of your life? My Answer: Two word: Neil O'Donnell. Need some more words? Super Bowl XXX. I guess it's a good thing if the biggest letdown of my life is a game. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on […]

Hubba Hubba

Ahhhh, Britney: Now she's posing in Esquire, and the cover (above) copies a 1966 pose by actress Angie Dickinson for the November issue of Esquire. Like I've said before, she may have a dumb stance on politics or only a slightly better than average ability to sing, but she's well above average on the looks […]

QotD: Movie Lines

Question: Do you quote movie lines often? What's your favorite? My Answer: Can't say I have a favorite, but as a guy, I do my part to repeat as many movie lines as possible, at every opportunity. Very few women seem to be "into" this sort of thing, so I've learned it's best not to […]

FTPeel 1.0.1

FTPeel 1.0.1 is out. The changelog is quite extensive, with fixes, improvements, and new features. No SFTP support - that's coming in a free 1.1 update - but some very nice touches, some nagging things gone, and overall, a very solid update. Everyone is encouraged to update (or buy for the first time of course!). […]

Chin Monkeys

Chin Monkeys was one of the funniest things I've seen this year! Ed was good this week. West Wing felt a little cobbled together - it didn't have the cohesiveness of most other episodes, and it felt rushed at the end when they found Zoey and reinstated Bartlet. It was still a good episode, and […]

eBay Scam

Nearly two weeks ago I won an eBay auction for a GPS. I promptly paid - within minutes of the auction closing - plus $18 for USPS priority shipping and $5 for insurance. Today, my money was refunded to me. On the 23rd, my item was shipped. The shipper/seller did not provide a tracking number […]

Mayan Cichlids

I went to bed around 3 this morning, with the alarm set for 6:00. Around 7:45, I woke up. I vaguely recalled shutting off the alarm. So much for being on the lake at the crack of dawn. Around noon I got my stuff together and headed over to Lake Ida, where I've previously fished […]

QotD: Bluetooth

Question: Do you have Bluetooth anything? My Answer: I have a Bluetooth PowerBook. I have Bluetooth G5. I have a Bluetooth module (USB) that I used to use on my dual G4. You want it? $25 and it's yours. For the USB module, not the dual G4. Once again, a technology flounders until Apple takes […]

My Dock

My dock: You can see the Finder, CPU Monitor, SpamSieve, Entourage, Safari, Adium, BBEdit, Terminal, Terminal Pal, iTunes, NetNewsWire, and Camino (open here only to view, which blows monkey chunks in Safari). I'm not going to link to any of those because, frankly, you know where to find them. And if you don't, you […]
