Shooting, Day Two

Well, I've improved since the first time I went shooting. José and I went to the Palm Beach Shooting Center (don't go there unless you wish to see a really bad site). We took two to three hours and each fired through 100 rounds, José with his rented Beretta and I with my CZ 75 […]

QotD: Sleepy

Question: How do you behave when you're sleepy? My Answer: I begin dreaming very early. My thoughts jump rapidly and in no meaningful order from one thing to another. I'll say out loud (if I'm having a conversation) "no, don't put that there" referring to a game of chess, and then ten seconds later say […]

PulpFiction just won the runner-up Apple Design Award for "Best Mac OS X Technology Adoption." Details to follow tomorrow. Also rumors about Travolta and "squoze" jokes to follow, undoubtedly.

Brad and Scott are at WWDC, and developers are encouraged to check out the WWDC Weblog run by Cocoa Dev Central at We encourage you to stop Brad or Scott to say hi. Brad was a big help on PulpFiction and is responsible for much of the speed boosts seen in 1.0.1 (as are […]

QotD: Design

Question: What's the number one rule of design? My Answer: Don't be afraid to let your own personality flow into the work. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.


I've never been "outromanced" by anyone, but Carey has a pretty darn good lead on me. 🙂 It's a nice thing, this "being in love" thing.

AAPL: Down $1.21

Go figure.

Many people IMed me shortly after Safari RSS was announced. "What about PulpFiction?" or "Guess this means the end of PulpFiction?" The answer is rather simple: this is a good thing for PulpFiction. Safari RSS* will get people interested in syndication. Those users will graduate to a higher level and look for a more advanced […]

QotD: Tiger

Question: What do you think is the nicest new feature in Tiger? My Answer: XCode 2.0 or Automator look to be the nicest from my perspective. I'll talk more about the other stuff in the coming hours, days, and weeks, but that's my concise answer for now. You are encouraged to answer the Question of […]

QotD: CDs

Question: Do you listen to CDs anymore? My Answer: No. I buy them, but I just put them in, rip them, and put them away. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Parties

Question: What do you see as the single biggest difference between the Democratic and Republican parties? My Answer: One's led by an idiot and one is led by a scary, scary looking man? I don't know. In the past few years, I've seen what separates the two parties collapse, rebuild, and muddle around. In other […]

Fahrenheit 9/11

I went with Arion last night to see Fahrenheit 9/11. I've previously seen only Bowling for Columbine and read some background information on both BfC and F911. One thing is now clear: Michael Moore does not produce documentaries. He produces a movie, granted, but calling either of these movies documentaries - and awarding him an […]

QotD: Fahrenheit

Question: Are you going to see Fahrenheit 9/11? My Answer: I'm sitting in the theater right now blogging from my phone, so yes. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

On Patrol

Geek Patrol has published an interview with, well, me at I said a lot in that interview, so I've not much to say here and now. 🙂

Shooting, Day One

Kati and I went shooting today. I was a bit suspicious that Miss Boca Fashion Plate could hold her own, but she performed rather well. Kati's shots are from 10-15 feet, mine are at about 30-35. She didn't fire less rounds: she just missed the paper a bit more frequently. 🙂 To those who think […]
