RSS Roundtable

Everyone's favorite drunk has published a roundtable discussion with myself and a few other syndicated content aggregator developers (or feed aggregators, or whatever - I'm still not comfortable just saying "RSS"). You can read it here. What do you think of what was said? Leave a comment here as well as at the roundtable if […]

QotD: Mini Stores

Question: What do you think of Apple's new mini stores? My Answer: I think they'll be a great way to get into smaller malls and whatnot without the expense of the standard 30' store. And, given my past with Apple and retail, I'll leave it at that and simply read your thoughts. I do think […]

Steelers 24, Cowboys 20

In a weekend that saw the sad, sad Miami Dolphins fall to 0-6 (to the previously 0-4 Bills), the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Dallas Cowboys, 24-20 to go to 5-1 and take a solid lead in the AFC North over the 3-2 Baltimore Borings. Rookie Ben Roethlisberger completed his last 11 passes and Kimo von […]

QotD: Publication

Question: If you could be the editor of any single publication, what publication would you pick and why? My Answer: Playboy, for more than obvious reasons. I'd insist on having more Playmates with natural breasts and brown hair. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on […]

QotD: Taxes

Question: What percentage of your income went towards taxes last year? My Answer: Standard income taxes - about 30%. Of course, that's much more than the 12% Teresa Heinz Kerry paid. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.


From this: Aftertheuseofahairdryereverythingworksexceptthespacebar Is it just me, or does the word "sex" pop out at you if you look at that word without trying to determine what sentence it forms?

QotD: Live

Question: If you had to name the best live musical performance you have ever attended, which would you pick? My Answer: I saw Natalie Merchant from about ten feet away play in Chautauqua, NY. That's about 45 minutes from her home. She'd spent a week relaxing on Lake Chautauqua and was in a great mood. […]

QotD: Duel

Question: If you had to fight a duel tomorrow at dawn, and you could determine the type of weapons you both would use, what would they be? My Answer: Pistols, because I'd actually have a shot (pun intended). If I was at least as good as the other person using swords, I'd choose those. Sword […]

Dan Lynn submitted a PulpFiction theme today, saying: I liberally borrowed the look of this theme from a really spiffy website that you may have ran across. 😉 … I've tested this theme out on the feeds from all my subscriptions and resolved all issues. The title links to the story and the site name […]

Assault Weapons Ban

Jeff's notes on last night's debate (I watched the Yankees/Red Sox and unpacked some more before Carey came over) include this snippet: 16th: Assault weapons ban. Why not extend? Bush: "I thought we oughta extend it. But the bill would never move because people of both parties were against it." (Obvious question: Why didn't you […]

QotD: Unpacking

Question: When unpacking, what's the first thing you worry about? Second? Last? My Answer: The computer, then the entertainment center. Last? The bedroom, the kitchen, the bathroom… any of those, much to the dismay of those who love me. 🙂 You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments […]

DirecTiVo Local Channels

I'm trying to figure out how to get local channels (or at least ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX - the network stations) here on my DirecTiVo in Erie, PA. I've asked a question at the TiVo Community forums, but if anyone has any advice, feel free to post a comment here on my blog as […]

QotD: Superman

Question: Which Superman movie was your favorite? My Answer: It's been so long for me that I can't remember which was which (the one with the moon was my least favorite, though), but I'm curious what people have to say. Y'know, given the fact that Superman died. You are encouraged to answer the Question of […]

QotD: Song

Question: What is the last song you heard. If you have music playing now, what is it? My Answer: From an AppleScript I wrote for this purpose: Erik is listening to "Bad Day (Amended Album Version)" by R.E.M. from the album "Bad Day - Single" (2003). Erik has rated this song 4.0 stars and last […]
