QotD: Places

Question: What's the most interesting place you've been this week? My Answer: The 18th green at Pinehurst #2. Why? Oh, just some fond memories… You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Equipment

Question: What's the most beautiful piece of equipment you own? My Answer: I've intentionally left the question vague… but I chose the word "beautiful" over "sexy" for a reason. I've recently got a set of Titleist 680s, and they're gorgeous. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments […]


Question: Does your car stereo (or other story) have the RDS? My Answer: The RDS is the thing that tells you the song name, artist, and radio station. Car radios without RDS always display "101.3." It's been out for awhile and I can't imagine it's terribly costly. My radio supports it, but only about half […]

QotD: Exes

Question: Do you still talk to your exes? My Answer: No. None of 'em. I do talk to other people's exes, though… 😉 You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Second-Class

Question: Is Apple treating Mac users as second-class citizens with the push towards USB 2 over Firewire on new iPods? My Answer: Yep. Apple, if you want to cater to PC people, just put both in the gosh darn box, mmmk? Firewire is faster. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for […]

The Technology Debate in Golf

I posted a story at The Sand Trap which discusses the distance professional golfers hit the ball these days. My conclusion is that distance is not everything, but that other factors, such as player conditioning, course conditioning, the lob wedge, and the spin players get from the rough are the main reasons scores get lower […]

QotD: Digital Photography

Question: On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your interest in digital photography? My Answer: Prior to a week or two ago, 3. Since then, 5. After March 25 or so, 6-7. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Math and Women

Question: Are men, in your estimation, better at math, programming, and sciences in general than women? To what do you attribute your answer: pre-determined nature or nurture/society/etc.? My Answer: I long ago read a study that said men were better with math and women with language and the arts. In my experience, this has held […]

Google AdWords and AdSense

Perhaps I've just overlooked this, but is it possible to tie the profits from Google's AdSense in to Google's AdWords? In other words, so that the money you earn from one can pay for the other? The money would never leave Google's hands, after all, and they'd be achieving profitability several times over - they […]

Win Rock Star and PulpFiction

Kottke's going to be blogging full-time now, and he asked us to throw in some prizes. We've donated five copies of PulpFiction and Rock Star to the effort. Click on through for more information. Good luck, Jason.

Torrent(ial) Tiger

Drunkenblog follows up with a bunch of quotes from folks with a Mac software gig regarding those kids who pirated Tiger. Slashdot links and comments, as it always does. It's shocking to read some of the viewpoints. Most seem to say something like "yeah, Apple has a right to sue, but should they sue so […]

A Google Bug?

Tonight I spent an hour redoing links on The Sand Trap because Google (and MSN, and Yahoo) seem to have a bug: they don't recognize the ".golf" extension. The search results you do get (currently) on MSN and Yahoo are either from the forum (.php) or from category archives (i.e. "") where the index file […]


I'm interested in taking photos, as you may have noticed, but one of the work-related purposes is to stitch together panoramas. In the past, I've manually stitched together panoramas in Photoshop. However, I'm looking for software that makes this a little bit easier. If it can create QuickTime VR movies, all the better, but it's […]

QotD: Celebrity Death

Question: What celebrity death most impacted your life? My Answer: Today's question courtesy of Hunter S. Thompson, who shot himself Sunday night. I've been around 26 years, so I've not seen many high-profile assassinations in the US (i.e. Malcolm X, JFK, etc.), but that didn't stop me from becoming obsessed with one: JFK's murder. I […]

Cocoa/Video Job

I've got a lead on a good (Cocoa) programming job. The job entails importing and playing video, drawing colored lines and rectangles over the video, and allowing users to step through the video frame by frame. The product also includes a video library full of short videos that need to be played (or used for […]
