Putter on eBay

Over the next few weeks and months, I'll be putting a lot of equipment on eBay. The first of those: a putter. Bid early, bid often, yada yada. Proceeds benefit the high school golf team for which I am acting as volunteer assistant coach.

Despite the fact that it's no longer my company, I feel compelled to tell you that Freshly Squeezed Software has released (finally) the 1.2.2 update to PulpFiction. The 1.2.2 release fixes several things: fixed incorrect folder counts fixed the negative flagged counts set the article list to be scrolled to the top of deleted items […]


Hardy har har. A: You're wrong Q: I'v never found that to be true A: Because it makes following messages more difficult Q: Why is top-posting evil? I'll top-post a response if my response is short, like "Yeah, sounds good" or something. Otherwise I inline - and I usually split paragraphs and respond to very […]

QotD: Plugins

Question: What plugins do you use with your blog package? My Answer: I use MovableType 3.2. I have mt-wordcount, Kill-nav-commenters-gif, MTTimer, MT-Macros, and the built-in SpamLookup and Template Refresh enabled. I've disabled NoFollow simply because I don't allow spamments, so I don't wish to punish valid comments and the URLs they contain. This question was […]


It's raining, it's raining, it's raining! It's really really raining! Yay! Hallelujah! I think the last time it rained here, the calendar said "July." If it rained in August (prior to last night), you wouldn't know it by me. Lake View is in the worst condition I've ever seen it and I've mowed my lawn […]

Madden 2006

A few days ago I traded in a bunch of PS2 games (I now have only three or four) for Madden 2006. A few thoughts, then… Online play is nice. NFL 2K5's gameplay is both more realistic and more fair. I've never seen so many footballs go through defenders and still be caught by the […]

To print a 175-page PDF, Kinko's charges 7¢/page. That's $12.25 to print something just because I don't want to use my own laser printer or to read it on-screen. To FedEx/Kinko's I say "bah!" Staples charges $2.49 + 6¢/page ($12.99). Plus the hold music when I called the store was "Sometimes" by Britney Spears. Uh […]

I posted a "job" opening at The Sand Trap .com earlier today. If you like golf and love talking to some of the industry bigwigs, well, it may just be the position for you.

iTunes Algorithms and Pandora

As I was reading "How Much Does iTunes Like My Five-Star Songs?" Jeff IMed to tell me about, which is essentially an Internet radio station that asks you for your favorite song or artist, then plays more music that's similar in style. Pandora gives you ten hours for free, then looks to charge $36/year. […]

QotD: iTunes and iPod

Question: Do you feel that iPod sales drive use of the iTMS or that use of the iTMS drives iPod sales? My Answer: It's probably a bit more of the latter, but in my case, neither drives the other. I haven't bought an iPod in close to two years (the Shuffle I picked up was […]

QotD: iTunes Price Increase

Question: If record companies forced variable pricing on iTunes, how would you react? ( My Answer: I'd stop buying music from iTunes. $0.99 is just the right price. Record companies make something like $0.65 per track downloaded from iTunes, last time I checked. Screw 'em. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day […]

Brad Choate (yes, there's only one) spent some time with my "Error 500s with MovableType 3.2" issue yesterday and believes he's found the source of the problem: a low Apache Timeout value. Default used to be 1200, but that was recently lowered to 300. The timeout value Interland has set on my server? 5. A […]

Madagascar is Crap

Yesterday, Carey and I went to watch Madagascar. The movie was fine (the half hour of commercials and previews were not), but what really struck me was just how ordinary the movie was. Particularly compared to Pixar movies.

QotD: Children’s Movie

Question: What was your favorite children's movie? My Answer: I didn't really get into too many movies, largely because VHS was still a pretty new thing when I was a kid. I liked watching Santa Clause (The Movie) as an adolescent, though. But favorite children's movie? Fantasia, maybe? You are encouraged to answer the Question […]

QotD: Favorite Toy

Question: What was your favorite toy as a child? Do you still have it? Do you still play with it? My Answer: Without a doubt, Legos. I still have my Legos, but I don't play with them. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your […]
