QotD: Sports

Question: What sports do you currently play? My Answer: Golf. Softball. Bike riding (hardly a sport, but I'll take what I can get). That's about it. I hope to find someone for some raquetball matches, but right now life's a bit too hectic to worry about that. You are encouraged to answer the Question of […]

Semi Moved In

Carey and I, at this point, are semi moved in. The fact that I've got Internet access once again will slow my progress down, but I'm pretty close to done. More so than I was yesterday and the day before, that is, and about half of my stuff is in the garage. Speaking of which, […]

QotD: Persuasion

Question: Is persuasion dead? My Answer: Based on a recent NYT column, this question is. Talking like Yoda, I am. Anyway, my answer is that on a large scale, I think that persuasion is largely dead. Then again, I'm not ever sure it was ever alive. Politics doesn't persuade anyone anymore, and Steve Jobs has […]

Windows: the new Classic.

Something occurred to me today that I haven't seen talked about everywhere: Windows emulation on Mac OS X won't be "emulation" anymore. Sure, Microsoft or whomever makes a Windows "emulator" might throw Windows into its very own "environment" ("Wininwindows," anyone? - it makes sense to keep the taskbar and the dock separate), but with an […]

10.4.1 LaserJet Printer Error

My HP LaserJet 1320 is failing to print. I print, and shortly after the job spools the print queue is stopped. When I log into CUPS (http://localhost:631/) it displays this error text: "The process "usb" stopped unexpectedly with status 233" I clean installed 10.4 onto another partition and it printed fine (with all of my […]

The new house is good (more on this in the coming days and weeks, I'm sure). I am wondering, though, if there are any simple, small wireless webcams that perhaps have a microphone. I'm looking to use it for a baby monitor of sorts so that we can hear one bedroom from every part of […]

QotD: Intel

Question: Do you agree or disagree with Apple's decision to move to Intel? My Answer: It's too early for me to tell, as I've not read much about it, but I'm curious what y'all might have to say. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on […]

Intel Inside?

What the heck? I'm offline for three days and Apple moves to Intel? What in tarnation is going on around here?!? Obviously I still have some reading to do on the whole situation (and I may not get to it until next week, as I'm still moving in - so any pointers to some quick […]

QotD: Cell Minutes

Question: How many minutes, on average, do you rack up on your cell phone in an average month? My Answer: Anywhere between 1,000 and 1,500 or so all by myself. Carey and I have a joint plan now and are getting a home phone with local only service so that calling our parents, toll-free numbers, […]

QotD: Moving Fun

Question: What's your favorite thing about moving? My Answer: Finding new spaces to put things. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Moving Dread

Question: What's your least favorite thing about moving? My Answer: Packing and carrying. The aches, the hassle, the dust, the weight, the sore muscles… ugh! You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Happiness

Question: Have you ever told a friend that you seriously question whether he or she is happy or not? My Answer: Uhhh, yep. One of those times was recent enough that I am not sure how the outcome will be, but The friend is a good person and I think the friend's life will be […]

QotD: Pillows

Question: How do you like your pillows? My Answer: Large, thick, and firm. Hmmm, that doesn't quite sound like I'm describing pillows, and neither does "I like pillows that have some meat to them," but that's how I like my pillows. I have TempurPedic pillows right now that work really well. You are encouraged to […]

Kevin Fox Kicks Butt

Kevin Fox kicks serious butt. He knows why (and to him, Carey and I both say THANK YOU). As a completely horrible way to say thanks, I've spent entirely too much time doing the same LiveJournal meme he posted here.

QotD: Mexican

Question: Do you eat Mexican food? If so, what's your favorite? My Answer: I only really eat tacos. And even then, just with cheese and meat. I don't care if it's spicy - sometimes that's good - and rice isn't bad, and beans are sometimes okay, but lettuce, tomatoes, etc. are no good. Booo! 🙂 […]
