Versus Network

Versus is owned by Comcast. Comcast is headquartered in Philadelphia and owns the Flyers. Now it all makes a lot more sense. Update: Worth a read.

New C3 Website

Judi has more of the details, but suffice to say that a project I've been working on for about 15 months is finally just about wrapped up. Yippee!

As I mentioned before, Carey and I have recently decided to turn one wall of a downstairs playroom into a craft room/mini-office. We spent the better part of Mother's Day weekend (and the days before it) working on such a project, and, as promised, here are the before and after photos.

Jerry Uht Park Panorama

This is the scene of a Family Buck Night only 20 minutes before the first pitch is thrown. Handheld and stitched together automatically with the Photoshop "photomerge" command. No doubt I could have spent time doing it manually, but eh.


So, Powerset has been in the news lately, but so far as I can tell, it kind of sucks. "Who is the CEO of Apple?" results in Steve Jobs' name first appearing fourth. In first place? Gil Amelio. Uh hmmm.

My partner in the Golf Talk Podcast uses a Windows machine. He has a Samson USB condenser mic, and just recently we've decided to try recording both sides of the conversation. I use Audio Hijack Pro to record both sides, currently, and would likely continue to use that same setup to record my side, but […]

I'm on the lookout for a Dremel type tool. Does anyone have them? Are they worth it? There have been several times over the past several years when I've wanted one: as a handy screwdriver that can fit into smaller places than my regular cordless drill, to get those little sanding and cutting things to […]

Why can't Safari's "undo" undo closing a tab? Just open the tab back up, scroll back to where I was, and let me forget that I finger-twitched on command-w a bit too quickly. Gah!

For mother's day this year, I bought Carey some cabinets (kitchen cabinets), a laminate countertop, and all the assorted goodies that are needed to install it (some wood, screws, a pry bar for the baseboard, a knife to cut the carpet, and so on. We also picked up some paint. The plan: convert one wall […]

Potato Chips

I can't be the only person who enjoys a potato chip… … on top of some pizzas. … on burgers. … on a hot dog. … with ice cream, preferably chocolate. Okay, maybe the last one, but I know enough people that eat them with the others. Are you one? What unusual combos do you […]

The latest (beta 5) version of the iPhone SDK was released, and in a move that surprises absolutely nobody, synchronizing (or even copying) with a desktop app is still not possible. There is still no way to even copy data from a desktop app to the iPhone (or vice versa). The most likely avenue for […]

Bizarre Safari Bug?

A user on The Sand Trap forum linked to his online Scorecards at this URL: The URL works fine in OmniWeb, iCab, Firefox, and even Internet Explorer for the Mac, yet Safari (and any WebKit-based browser) shows a 404. Changing the user agent in Safari doesn't fix anything, either. What gives? P.S. I've yet […]

Penguins vs. Flyers

The Pittsburgh Penguins knocked off the whiny, whiny Rangers in five games and in overtime today, and will now face the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers, last year's worst team, deserve credit for making the Eastern Conference finals, but I suspect that's about as far as they'll get - the Pens are the better team at […]

GTA (not) IV (me)

I have absolutely no plans to buy the game. None. It interests me about as much as a swift kick to the groin (or most of the other things you can do to other people in the game). I don't care to reward people for making glitzier versions of games that lack much merit, and […]
