Domain Name Surfing

Sometimes it's fun to check out domain names that are about to expire. DUMBJOKES.NET - Gee, that'll get the traffic! WILLYOU.NET - If you're proposing via a web site, probably not. KIDSWAP.NET - Uhhh… isn't that illegal? ELECTRICFLY.COM - Sounds like a cool name for a movie production company or something. DOGCOOLER.COM - For those […]

QotD: Blog Authoring

Question: How do you author posts on your blog? My Answer: I've been trying to get used to ecto lately. Now I see that 2.0 (currently in a closed beta) fixes a few of the things I dislike and adds some other useful features. Plus, like PulpFiction, more inspiration is drawn from Mail! Cool. I'm […]

Pathetic iTMS Partial Album

Yep. It's pathetic.

We (FSS) are in need of a dns resolver library for Mac OS X that has a timeout, resolves MX records, is mt-safe, and optionally supports IPv6. We've found FireDNS, but it's GPL. There's also c-ares but it lacks the ability (seemingly) to handle IPv6. Suggestions, anyone?

Camera Pole

Thinking "out loud" here… I have the Sony DCR-PC101. I'd like to create a monopod that can be shoved into the ground so that I can film myself (primarily filming my shots through a round of golf). I think that the construction should be in two parts: a base and a part that attaches to […]

Empty Apple Store

Have you ever seen an empty Apple Store? Of course, this is the old variety: wood floors, corian tables. The new (slate/wood) is soooo much cooler. P.S. In case you couldn't tell, I'm trying to help Chris find a bug in Photon. I like it but have a few suggestions, including a template to edit […]

PNC Park 3

Just giving Photon a try… I've already bought it, so I hope it's worthwhile. 🙂 Eh, it's OK. It could use a little more customization - the title of this post is kind of silly, and I of course can't edit this text. I'm doing so after the fact. I think it missed posting the […]

Multimedia Instructor

Now I ask you, gentle blog visitor: what in the hell does "3D modeling" and "Animation" have to do with "E-Commerce" and "PHP"? My goodness: this has to be one of the worst jobs ever! Talk about "jack of all trades, master of none." The minimum requirements for this kind of job must be "can […]

QotD: Postal

Question: FedEx, UPS, or USPS? My Answer: I despise UPS. Utterly despise them. FedEx is great, as is the USPS. I can't recall anything I've gotten from UPS in the past four years that didn't look as though it had been kicked, punched, dropped, and treated badly. You are encouraged to answer the Question of […]

Garden State

I saw the movie Garden State with Arion today. He didn't care for it as much as I did. The movie is very real, and I saw bits and pieces of nearly all of my close friends and the relationships I've had with them through the years. It was human, it was funny, it was […]

Eight days remain in the PulpFiction drive for the EFF. Read the details here. Summary: donate $50 or more and your blog will be included as a default subscription in PulpFiction for at least six months.

QotD: New Olympic Sport

Question: What new Olympic sport would you like to see? My Answer: Tactical shooting. In other words, running around a course, ducking behind things, having targets pop up. Kinda like you'd see in the movies. Besides, Jay already took the coolest idea: team fencing. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for […]

Athletes as Role Models

Yesterday I saw a commercial that said something like "to those of you who say that athletes shouldn't be role models, may we suggest that perhaps you're looking at the wrong athletes?" The voice spoke over images of Olympic swimmers, gymnasts, and other world class athletes and competitors. While I've always believed that a child's […]

QotD: Keynote

Question: Has Keynote been orphaned by Apple? My Answer: Khoi seems to think so. Me? Well, all signs point to yes. I'm also wondering where in the hell my AppleWorks update may be. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Garden State

Question: Have you seen Garden State? What did you think? My Answer: I want to. Perhaps I'll get out to see it tomorrow evening. I like Scrubs and the previews looked interesting. I'm not a Natalie Portman guy - she's cute and all, but that's where it ends for me - but I do like […]
