Black Pro Keyboard

Today I swapped out my existing black pro keyboard for one I found in my closet. Typing on this thing is as close to typing nirvana as I can dream possible. It's soft yet responsive. Quiet. It's great. What more could I ask for from a keyboard? The old one is great too - but […]

QotD: Recent Movies

Question: What's the best movie you've seen in the past week? My Answer: I liked Miracle a great deal. Not exactly a date movie, but there was a "dashing and debonaire" comment that got some chuckles from a female friend and myself (inside joke I guess). Plus, hey, a chick that likes hockey? That's better […]

QotD: Camera Phones

Question: Does your phone have a camera? My Answer: Nope. When I get my darn v600 it will though, darnit! You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Devil’s Advocate

Question: How often do you play Devil's Advocate? My Answer: Fairly frequently. I'm a firm believer that you don't truly know something until you can argue it from either side of the fence. Sometimes, I'll let people paint me a certain way (or try to get me to support an argument that may not necessarily […]

QotD: Fetish

Question: Do you have any sexual fetishes? My Answer: Not really. I don't have strong feelings towards anything except most of the bizarre, way out of this world stuff, and those feelings are more along the lines of "not for me" than anything else. I don't obsess over any one part of a woman, I'm […]

QotD: Obesity

Question: Is obesity a disease? My Answer: Said Jim Carrey in a Playboy interview (March 2004): Playboy: But you're a wealthy movie star - you're in a position to deny yourself comforts. Most people don't have that many comforts to begin with. They have overdue bills and abusive bosses. Carrey: That's denial man. That's like […]

Disabled Go Menu Items

For some time now my Go menu has looked like this: I have no idea why the "iDisk" and "Network" menu items are disabled. My permissions are correct. My iDisk is permanently mounted and synchronized, but it'd be nice to be able to choose "Someone Else's Public Folder" (or whatever it's called). What gives? How […]

Widespread Bargain!

Wowee! You can purchase 51 live not-available-in-stores songs (over 7 hours of music) from Widespread Panic's sold-out year-end concert for only $14.99! Awesome! My (more-than-) friend Kate in Georgia is a huge WSP fan. I picked up every one of these songs for myself, and for her as well. That reminds me: I should call […]

QotD: Cook

Question: How often do you cook dinner for yourself or others? My Answer: Once a week, if that. I'm terrible. If by "fix" dinner you don't mean the fast, easy stuff, that is. I eat in about three times a week (still terrible). You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself […]

QotD: Fish

Question: What's your favorite fish to eat, if any? My Answer: Trout or, a new favorite, redfish. The prior breaded, the latter blackened. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Mud Creek

Today I went to Mud Creek near the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant for a little fishin'. I found the place after about 90 minutes of driving, parked, and put in at Little Mud Creek. Mud? What mud? The bottom is hard, packed sand. I paddled out and headed south, fishing the shoreline. It was […]

QotD: Taxes

Question: Have you done your taxes yet? My Answer: No, but I'll be doing them this week I think. I hate doing taxes, but this year I should come out ahead. Maybe. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Filing My Taxes

So, I'd like to file my taxes online. I'll pay $25 or so to do it. The question is: where the hell can I do this? The site is horrendous. I want to claim some deductions (business expenses, as some of my income is 1099) and I also have a standard job that's paid […]

Rock Star for your Blog

This blog's sidebar supports a nice new feature: my current Rock Star top score and ranking. I've done so with a simple little JavaScript (and an accompanying PHP script): <script src=" products/rockstar/hiscores/username.fss? username=Erik%20J.%20Barzeski" type="text/javascript"> </script> You too can embed this in your Web site or blog to let the world know how big a Rock […]

48 Hours

John Gruber says: Recommended reading, even if you wind up disagreeing with more than 1.5 of his criticisms. And so I shall: Matthew Thomas' list of faults found while "enduring" Mac OS X. As if the title alone didn't get you, the list surely will. Some are right, some are wrong. Let's have a look.
