When Geeks Dine Out

To three decimal places, geeks tipping: $33.33 (repeating) + $6.66 (repeating) is a pair of twenties. Or, well, $40 on your credit card.

QotD: Tips

Question: How do you tip? My Answer: I double the amount of the bill and move the decimal to the left one place. That's 20% and it serves as my foundation. Average service tips at 20%. Poor service down from there, and good service up from there. You are encouraged to answer the Question of […]

Scott Stevenson gave his presentation at the BANG meeting last night. Scott discussed PulpFiction, demonstrated Rock Star, and even had a few moments left at the end to show off FTPeel's Magic Mirror. You can view a PDF of Scott's brief presentation here or download the .keynote (zipped) here.

QotD: Annika

Question: Should female players be allowed on the PGA Tour? My Answer: They have an LPGA Tour, but that's no argument for disallowing it. If a woman wishes to compete with the men on the PGA Tour, and makes it through qualifying (or is given a sponsor's exemption), then I see no issue whatsoever. It's […]

.Mac Upgrade

I remain a .Mac subscriber, and this makes things even nicer: We're excited to announce that your .Mac membership now comes with 250 MB of combined .Mac Mail and iDisk storage. And, in another move designed to make life easier as traffic grows heavier and files grow larger, we've increased the maximum email message size […]

PulpFiction now works with Yay. Scott Stevenson will be introducing PulpFiction 1.1 at tonights BANG meeting. The meeting is at 7:00 tonight in the De Anza 3 Auditorium. Yep, that's on the Apple Campus. New features include Growl support, this thing, and a few other things. Nearly everything we've done in PulpFiction 1.1 has […]

SpamSieve Stats

Of course, I don't filter all of my email through SpamSieve - some are "safe" enough that I just route them to the right folders: orders, email from some of the people in my address book, and so on. Showing Statistics Since 8/24/04 8:00 PM Filtered Mail 1633 Good Messages 5779 Spam Messages (78%) 164 […]


Like ecto, the next version of PulpFiction will feature Growl support. Growl is… …a global notification system for Mac OS X. Any application can send a notification to Growl, which will display an attractive message on your screen. Growl can be configured to activate as filter action. In the example shown at right, I've told […]

QotD: Colors

Question: What's your favorite color scheme? My Answer: Orange is the new black, right? But orange and black look like halloween. Red and green like Christmas. Brown is out. Blue and grey is overused. Red and yellow is fast food. Green and yellow are too similar. Orange and green? Well that's what FSS uses. Any […]

Voice Chat in 2K5 Series

Perhaps I'm incredibly dumb, or I've missed something in the spartan manual, but I can't figure out what series of keypresses are needed to activate voice chat with my PS2, a logitech USB headset (which shows up as "voice chat" ready), and NFL 2K5 or NHL 2K5. People have talked to me, but I cannot […]

Conspiracy Theorists

I love crappy conspiracy theories. This one almost tops that chemtrails one.

Gzip CSS

If I'm ever running up against any bandwidth limits, I'll now remember how to gzip my CSS.

QotD: Star *

Question: Star Trek, Star Wars: do you care? My Answer: No. I particularly do not care about Star Trek, and Star Wars is nice and all, but George Lucas doesn't realize how absolutely horrible his dialog is. he's got to get over himself (he won't) and let someone else help with the last script (he […]

QotD: Favorite App

Question: What is your favorite application? My Answer: I won't mention one of my own. 🙂 Adium is my favorite application, despite its crashing tendencies (especially when using the logger). iTunes is up there, as is Safari. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your […]
