Yippee! This change alone will save me 4.3 years of work every 30 days! No exaggeration! 😀

This is a free upgrade for existing customers and it fixes or improves on a lot of things: Added using a file's thumbnail for custom images. See release blog post […]

Scrubs is Back

December 1 on ABC?! It's true. I just saw a commercial. Carla was missing, as was Elliot. JD, Turk, and Perry were in the preview. The Scrubs site lists Kelso, Elliot, Janitor, and three new people as well, so perhaps they're back too. I wonder how accurate the cast list is, though, as The Middle […]

I like this comment from Lars the best: The public API you are referring to is a Mac OS X API. You assert that it is alright to transfer the image provided by that API to another device and display it there. This may or may not be the case but in my opinion, you […]

As my tweet says: I ordered Stack and Tilt swing from Amazon on Kindle. They instead sent me some book about Seymour Butts. Indeed: YouTube link is Incidentally I spent ten minutes trying to find the best way to contact support at Amazon. To say they've made it difficult is quite the understatement. I […]

Doortags and Being Home

Found another doortag from FedEx on my door just now… It's marked 2:23pm. I've been home since 8:30am. They don't ring the doorbell - they walk up to the door with a tag that's been pre-filled and stick it on, then walk away. What I don't get is this: they're going to have to deliver […]

Does anyone still truly care about an Apple Tablet? Either it'll be an underpowered computer running Mac OS X or it'll be an oversized iPhone or iPod Touch running mobile OS X, right? Originally I thought it might be nice to have one simply if it acted as a remote desktop screen. That'd still be […]

AppleEvents Bug Still in 10.6.2

This bug still exists in Mac OS X 10.6.2. I thought for sure they'd have fixed that one.

Kindle Illustrations Precursor

A few days ago I mentioned a book that was more expensive on Kindle than in hardcover. They've since updated that pricing, but that's not the point. The point is that the book - which I've had for awhile now thanks to Barnes and Noble's disregard for what may or may not even be an […]

Salary Cap in Baseball

Zzzzzzzzzzz. The recurring joke about the inability of the Yankees to win a World Series while paying one player more than the entire Pirates payroll has come to an end, but the argument remains the same: baseball needs a salary cap. Doesn't mean we'll see one in the next 10 or 20 years, but it's […]

If you've heard about the one finger discount, you'll be pleased to know that Cynical Peak is honoring the coupon code. But you didn't hear it from me, mmmkay?

Ooooooh, Canon 7D

Y'know, I should have known better than to read the Canon 7D review at DPReview. Now I'm trying to figure out how I can get one to replace my 5D. Since getting the 5D Mark II, I haven't used the 5D much. It's come in handy when I've needed to use two lenses without having […]

iPhone Pic: Who’s Stach?

Oh, silly FSN and their prepared graphics… But they were right to wonder: who is is better? Fortunately, an even better image came as a result of this game. You'll have to read Pensblog to see the original. And you'll have to have already read Pensblog for a long time to really get it.

‘Who Searched’ on Facebook

Funny, isn't it, how the "see who searched for you" ad on the right side of about 1/4 of the Facebook pages I look at always shows some 19-year old semi-trampy looking chick with cleavage and minimal clothing, isn't it? C'mon, Facebook. Are people that dumb? Please don't answer that.

I'm really interested in one or the other of the Spider Holster or Cotton Carrier. Their individual pages are at and They're both very similar systems. Here's a video of the Spider Holster:
