QotD: Pissants

Question: Say you're throwing a little get-together for your birthday, and you invite a few of your guy friends to hang out. Is it cool if one of them brings a girl (without asking)? My Answer: Nah. It's decidedly not cool. And yes, this is a message. I'm not pissed or anything, but hey, it's […]

Scripting Excel via PHP

Here's what I need to do daily: Look up data in a MySQL database from a PHP script. Insert that data into an Excel template. Email the Excel template. I can send a .xls file via email the same way I send a vCard, but only the kind you can create by tab-delimiting text and […]

QotD: Calling

Question: How long after you get a girl's phone number should you wait to call her to set up a date? My Answer: Hell if I know! That's why I'm asking! You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Rock Star Review

Hey, a 5 out of 5! I couldn't ask for a better birthday present! Thanks Tim. It's interesting to look back a year ago and see how things have changed: the gal has revealed herself to be a bit, uhhh, less savory than my first impression, and José has been nothing but a good friend […]

QotD: Snow

Question: I wanna know… have you ever seeeeen the snow? My Answer: Apologies to Creedence Clearwater Revival. I grew up in it, yes. I walked to school through it. I'm surprised, however, by the number of people who haven't, so sound out if you've never seen snow. You are encouraged to answer the Question of […]

QotD: Comments

Question: What are your thoughts on comment registration, TypeKey, etc.? My Answer: I am not sure. The more I read about MT 3.0, the more I wish to get away from MovableType. It has almost no improvements, and where is this "Pro" version they said would be released last summer? Rebuilds are still necessary, and […]

QotD: Management

Question: Have you ever had a good manager or boss? My Answer: I'm young, but for about 45 days I had a good manager when I first moved to Florida. Since then, except for the times when I've merely managed myself, I can't say that I have. I keep hoping, though. I keep hoping. In […]

Labels for The Stupids

Stupid people are great. Without stupid people, we wouldn't have these: On a Sears hairdryer: "Do not use while sleeping." Damn, and that's the only time I have to work on my hair. On a bag of Fritos: "You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside." The shoplifter special? On a bar of […]

Design Contest Over

The design contest I made a few days ago has ended. The winner is Randall Schenetz (I checked the spelling three times Randall!). He's elected to go with the $40 in music, and the iTMS gift certificate has been (e)mailed! I'd post the designs here, but an unnamed jackass would have a hissy fit. Every […]

206 Bridge – St. Augustine

The last time I was in St. Augustine I spent a weekend laying around naked with a gorgeous blonde. This time I was after a different color: red. Specifically, Jeff and I were targetting redfish. I remembered the large fruit stand at the St. Augustine exit, and I remembered turning onto 206, and I remembered […]

QotD: Evasion

Question: Have you ever intentionally evaded law enforcement? My Answer: You betcha! I was doing 80 in a 40, saw a dome light, whipped the car around, turned off he headlights, and ducked up a side road while the cop sped by looking for "the asshole going 80." I'd just gotten a ticket two months […]

QotD: Subscriptions

Question: To how many magazines (print) do you subscribe? My Answer: Maxim, Playboy, some Mac mags, some fishing ones, and Jane (don't ask). Around nine. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Irish

Question: Are ya Irish? Are you Irish today? My Answer: No, and no. St. Patty's day is one of the holidays I care least for (except that it's six days before my birthday). Whoopty doo. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Postfix and PHP

I'm attempting to send email via PHP using Mac OS X 10.3's built in mailserver (postfix). I've followed the directions here and received no errors in setting up postfix. PHP generates no errors in sending the email. However, the email is never received. Does anyone have any ideas what steps I might take next? Most […]

QotD: Counterfeit

Question: Have you ever knowingly used counterfeit money? My Answer: No, but with an asterisk. I've got a bunch of $200 bills right now - they're not technically counterfeit because there's no such thing as a $200 bill. When I was younger, I got pretty good at silver plating pennies. They were easily passed off […]
