QotD: Bookmarks

Question: How many bookmarks do you have? My Answer: I've got about twenty in my bookmarks bar in Safari (naming them "1" and "3" and "R4" and "Int" and so on saves a lot of space). I almost never look at my actual bookmarks… so I effectively have only twenty. You are encouraged to answer […]


Chris' entry at led me to create this, my own blogging output infographic: Can you guess which entry accounted for that large spike in early June, 2004? 😛 I've got 1895 entries totalling 345,307 words so far. The template used to generate this for importing into Excel is quite simple: <pre><MTEntries lastn="10000"> <MTEntryDate format="%Y-%m-%d"> […]

Justin points us here. Funny stuff. 🙂

Who gives a flying fuck? Seriously!?! The democrats have nice teeth. Y'know, except when it comes to fighting a war, during which they seem to have none. Must be dentures. I'm so sick of politics being "this." Where is a chart depicting the top 100 issues affecting Americans these days, and a sentence or two […]

Deadly Force

Snippets from Florida's "Justifiable Use of Force" laws: 776.06 Deadly force.-- (1) The term "deadly force" means force that is likely to cause death or great bodily harm and includes, but is not limited to: (a) The firing of a firearm in the direction of the person to be arrested, even though no intent exists […]

QotD: 100,000,000 Again

Question: How far off were you? My Answer: Apple sold its 100,000,000th iTune to Kevin Britten of Hays, Kansas at approximately 1:30am EST on July 12th, making Paul Mayne the winner (I believe). I was personally off by about four days. At 10:15 when Carey called me tonight, the counter read 99,854,889. Aaron Linville finished […]

Florida Concealed Weapons

Yesterday, I attended a class required for licensure by the state of Florida for a CCW (Concealed/Carry Weapons) permit. Though I do not plan to carry my gun at any time (outside of standard conveyance allowances), I wanted to take the class to learn more about the laws surrounding firearms in Florida. Why else? To […]

Shania Twain Concert

Kati the Dame and I went to the Shania Twain concert last night. I'm absolutely kicking myself for leaving my camera in the car last night because we were 50 feet from the stage. Absolutely kicking myself. The opening band, Emerson Drive, was pretty good. I like country music in their style: more rock than […]

QotD: Edwards

Question: What did Edwards add to the Democratic ticket? My Answer: Nothing but another scheisty trial lawyer who looks a little younger than 51. If we care about how a potential vice president looks as much as the news has lately led me to believe we do, I'm seriously tempted to move to Canada. Edwards […]

Both of these books are now available: Mac OS X Panther Hacks and CSS Cookbook from O'Reilly (and Barnes & Noble, etc.). I served as the Technical Editor for both, and both now sit on my shelves as valuable references. The CSS Cookbook will come in handy enough when Tiger's Dashboard widgets (constructed in HTML, […]

QotD: Political Leanings

Question: How do you stack up in the Presidency Match Quiz? My Answer: I'm 50% Joe Lieberman, with Cheney and Bush a close second and third. John Kerry got 18% and John Edwards 22%. Thanks Josh. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Shooting, Day Four

I seem to have misplaced my targets from day three, so here we move on to day four. Misses tend to be down and to the left. Occasionally I'll catch myself worrying about the down and left, or reacting to a flinch, and I'll get a flier up and to the right. I've even got […]

QotD: Simple Site

Question: What's your favorite simply-designed site? My Answer: I'm looking to redesign a site for a shooting range and am looking for inspiration. Sites like this aren't exactly inspirational. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Marlins Fans: Stupid

One would think that the fans of a team which has won the World Series twice in the past seven years would possess a rather decent amount of baseball knowledge. Not so of the Florida Marlins. Their fans are some of the dumbest fans I've ever encountered in my years of attending baseball games. They […]

QotD: REALbasic

Question: How many REALbasic apps do you use on a regular basis? My Answer: Zero. How many exist in my /Applications folder? Zero. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.
