Mac Pro On Its Way

The estimated ship date is October 6, 2006 and the estimated delivery date is October 16, 2006. I wonder if it'll actually take that long. I guess I can put off ordering my 4 GB RAM kit from RAMJet for awhile. MAC PRO,CTO   3.00 GHz Quad Xeon   1GB 667 DDR2 FB DIMM ECC-2x512   ATI Radeon […]

BBEdit 8.5 Out

Version 8.5 is now available. $30 (for those upgrading from 8.0) gets you code folding, a better preferences window, a renamed Glossary, and, uhhhhh… we'll see. I wonder if code folding can fold around matching <div> tags… something in me doubts it. I'm watching football or I'd be playing with BBEdit right about now. And […]

Football is Here Already

Football season officially begins tonight as the Miami Dolphins venture to the 'Burgh. I don't know about you, but I'm not quite ready for football just yet. I also think the Dolphins will be stout this year, and though Batch is a capable backup, this will be a tough way to start the year for […]

QuickTime Player can do the same thing without any problem, so why can't iTunes? I don't know. You are encouraged to answer the Question of […]

Lights in the Kitchen

These are the pendant lights Carey and I hung over Labor Day weekend. They replace some lame track lighting (the bulbs always burned out, they were 60 watt max, etc.). Though we didn't plan for it, the lights we chose ($20 for a set of three at Lowe's) really draws your eye up, adding height […]

Steve Irwin’s Kids

So Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter, has died of a stingray tine to the heart. So be it - live by the sword, die by the sword they say. His wife, I heard, hadn't yet heard the news because she was backpacking somewhere remote. I didn't have a problem when Steve Irwin took his newborn […]

QotD: Labor Day 2006

Question: How will you spend your Labor Day? My Answer: Watching golf, watching my wife paint, staining and varnishing, and cleaning up. I did electrical work earlier today to remove some track lighting and install some pendant lighting (I think that's what it's called). It was tough work, mainly because the wires weren't very long […]


There's at least one reason to watch Click: Kate Beckinsale. 🙂 Well worth a dollar.

QotD: Favorite Sorkin Character

Question: Who is your favorite Sorkin character? My Answer: I honestly couldn't pick, but if you can't remember them all, IMDb has a loooooong thread. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.
