QotD: Cupertino

Question: How many times, if any, have you been to Cupertino? Do you want to go for the first time or again? My Answer: I've been to the iHolyLand about eight times. iPlan to return, perhaps for WWDC 2004*. Ooh, that reminds me - I've gotta renew my ADC membership in February… * Yes, I […]


"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act. It is a habit." -- Aristotle

QotD: Race

Question: Are you as physically attracted to members of other races as you are to those of your own? My Answer: What attracts me to a woman has nothing to do with race. I'm not as attracted to blondes as I am to brunettes, for example. I've found quite a few black, Asian, etc. women […]

QotD: Casual Sex

Question: Casual sex: good or bad? My Answer: I don't care for it personally, but have nothing against it. I'm a bigger fan of intimacy than just "getting off," so that doesn't leave a lot of room for picking up a chick in a bar. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day […]

On Resignation

I'm not resigning, but someone I know is quitting. Quitting after being at his job for around six months. Quitting after going on a two-week vacation that stretched to three weeks one week after he started. Quitting after passing up on a few hours, whining, disobeying orders, and more "fun stuff" in six months. What's […]

QotD: Puerto Rico

Question: Should Puerto Rico become a state? My Answer: That's up to them. If I lived there, I wouldn't. They've got the perks of a state without the downside (taxes). I've never been there, so I'm a bit out of my depths, but hey, let them do what they want, and they don't want to […]


This article and a comment on this entry have got me thinking again: I've been flying a bit low lately. I want to get back to being an opinionated, outgoing person here on my blog. I want to write more and I want to write longer articles that have more thought. Lately, I've been tired, […]

QotD: Abortion

Question: Abortion: yay or nay? My Answer: I'm not a fan of convenience abortions - the "oops, the condom broke" variety - but in some situations, I accept that a first-trimester abortion is the best choice. Several years ago a friend of my mother almost had to make the choice between her own life and […]


Just as I arrived home to check my email, I began getting an inordinate amount of blog spam. By "inordinate" I mean nearly 100 spam comments. I immediately began clicking the links to remove the comments and add the blog spam to the MT-Blacklist, but for awhile, the rebuilding process wasn't adding the spamming domains […]

Seaborn-Sized Hole

One of my favorite quotes from West Wing is this: Leo: I gotta say, I love the way he did it full speed, bam. Like there's a Sam Seaborn-shaped hole in the wall. That quote reminds me of myself. I'm not a man of inaction. I'll do something - and it may not be right […]

Affecting Change

This week I was charged with the role of leader. The primary goal was to have good, clean week, and to take care of business. A secondary goal of mine was effecting a change in someone who has proven over the course of six months to be incompetent, unable or unwilling to learn, arrogant without […]


Poker in the front. Liquor in the back.

QotD: Names

Question: Do you have a name for your "you know what?" My Answer: Nope. And I plan to keep it that way. The one name an ex of mine had for it was rather complimentary, but I'll keep that to myself for now. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself […]


Freshly Squeezed Software is soon going to release some freeware for iTunes and Mac OS X that acts as a "shopping cart" of sorts. This application will allow you to save links to songs or albums while also allowing you to purchase songs from your list one at a time (without having to purchase the […]

QotD: Forums

Question: Have you ever been kicked out of an online community (forums, etc.)? My Answer: Nope. Most people realize that they can't actually ban you, and simply try their best to ignore you or flame you to death, but in some cases I know people who have been asked to leave. I'm a blunt, direct […]
