My Major Championship Sundays

For the past several years, I've spent all of my major championship Sundays (golf's majors, that is) here in front of the TV, live blogging the final round. I'll be doing the same today - here - and if you enjoy golf or want a chance to win a free copy of Scorecard, check it […]

WP-Grins and WordPress 2.8

WordPress 2.8 doesn't get along nicely with WP-Grins. I've asked Alex to release a minor update that addresses this, but he's not seen fit to give it a few minutes. 😉 So here's one "fix": Edit the file /wp-admin/css/colors-fresh.css to add this at the end: #wp_grins { display: none; } Voilà! It works.

EDGA Amateur Championship

Today was the first round of the EDGA Championship at Downing. I shot 79 and missed the first cut by two. Despite that, I'm quite pleased. I chalked this year up to a "work on my full swing" kind of year and I can easily say I've never struck the ball better for 18 holes. […]


Anyone with an opinion on Weeds? Thus far I like it more than Mad Men, but not as much as Entourage. I've watched season 1 and part of season 2 on Netflix streaming on the ol' Xbox 360. And FWIW I first liked Mary Louise Parker on West Wing.

{democracy:57} Personally, I tend to hate registering in a forum just to ask a question, but I like forums because I can find the answer for myself most of the time. Email works well if a user can be descriptive (so when I use email, I try to be descriptive). Phone support is never offered, […]

Just looking for recommendations: what's the best book you've read recently?

A Good Electric Razor?

Can anyone out there recommend a good electric razor? My old one can no longer hold a charge for very long, and it was never all that great to begin with. My facial hair doesn't grow very quickly. I have a separate beard trimmer (for a small goatee type thing), but if a razor could […]

Our First Garage Sale

Last weekend we cleared out the garage. This weekend we participated in a neighborhood garage sale and made $1050. What we didn't sell we donated to Salvation Army. Woo! 🙂 P.S. I'm saving some of the "creepy customer" stories for my close friends and family. But yeah, if you've heard some stories in the past, […]

Mmmmmm Chicken Sandwiches

I normally shy away from chicken breast sandwiches, both in restaurants and at home. Previously I made them on the George Foreman grill (once, maybe) and the meat was dry and tasteless. Cut to tonight, when I made the most incredible chicken sandwiches ever. I simply cut off the flank part of the breast to […]

Wii Sports Resort

If you're a fan of Wii Sports (and goodness knows we'd have still bought a Wii if that was the only game available for it), then you should really pick up a copy of Wii Sports Resort. It's bigger, better, and has some pretty fun stuff in it. My favorites include Basketball, Archery, Table Tennis, […]

Obama Half a Year In

How's he done? And, in hindsight (six-month hindsight, anyway), was all that self-assigned intellectual superiority really warranted, or has Obama pretty much failed to live up to expectations? We're still in Iraq and I hear taxes on the middle class are going up. Now, again, I'm not terribly political, but I am a fan of […]

Cyndicate, our desktop application for aggregating and reading RSS and Atom feeds, is now $19.95.

Lotta good this has been doing us all lately:

BusyCal Public Beta

BusyCal is now available in a public beta, and I'm giving it a try. I plan to check out the videos at some point too, but for $20 or $30 ((I have three computers, but one is my laptop, and I rarely use it for much, so iCal syncing via MobileMe should be fine. If […]
