So a friend of mine has a BMW 3 series sedan. It's nice (awkwardly low seats for someone used to driving a Touareg, though). It's got a "Start/Stop" button that works after you put your key fob in the little holder. I joked around today and asked "what happens if you push the button while […]

Window Seat

A friend passed along this really nice display of photos, called "Window Seat." They're photos taken from - you guessed it - the window seat of airplanes. Some of them are quite amazing. In this day and age I sometimes feel odd about taking out my camera on a plane - particularly during takeoff and […]

Marlboro Race Car

A nifty article that boils down to necessity being the mother of invention: a race car had a bar code decal applied in places where cigarette advertising (sponsorship) is banned. Frankly, I don't get the ban on cigarette advertising. How many people take up cigarettes because of a logo on a race car? Seriously? And […]

New Money

I'll pass on this: But I don't really like this design either (also seen here). Heck, I like the official version more than this redesign.

Forum for PGA/PGM Members

I haven't looked very much, but I've not seen a forum or a site that caters to people that are currently enrolling - or thinking about enrolling - in the PGA's apprentice or PGM programs. I'm considering starting one myself… I know I'd benefit and I don't doubt others would as well.


Somehow, my /System/Library/Extensions folder has grown to 214 items. Just curious - how many do you have on your computer? How in the world do I know if I need to load all of these? Can you clean some out? Why would you need or want to? FWIW, /Library/Extensions is empty. Again, how many do […]

Following up on yesterday's post, the estimates are: $80 to repair the gutter. The guy who came explained that this was basically a minimum charge. $96 to replace the one bad gutter. $442 (includes $50 coupon) to replace all of the gutters on the entire house. $1590 for a thing that's written up as "LEAF-FREE". […]

One of the gutters on my house has started to pull away from the house itself. Winter is tough on gutters, and this one's been bad for awhile now. All of the clips that hold the far side of the gutter to the near side are broken, so water just collects in the middle and […]

We've chosen a developer. We've chosen an icon artist. The process is full steam ahead at this point. It feels somewhat odd not writing code or doing mockups in Interface Builder for the application (I've still done plenty of mocking up, but it's been in Photoshop). Normally I'm involved at that level, but for this […]

HDR Course Now at DSLRU

We've posted a new - and free - course at DSLRU covering the hot topic of High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography. The course is available at along with ten other courses, all priced free or inexpensively. Don't forget, too, that you can enter DSLRU's launch contest to win free software from Nik. Registration at […]

With Casio's EX-F1 jumping $300 to $999, the EX-FH25 is looking pretty enticing. The stat that matters most to me is 240 FPS recording at 448 x 336 and 120 FPS at 640 x 480 are some nice numbers, particularly when you consider the fact that you can set the shutter speed to 1/2000 second […]


Jesper wrote this in 2008 regarding OmniWeb. Things haven't changed much since then, and OmniWeb 6 is vaporware, so Jesper's taking things into his own hands with "Rouse." Rouse is an attempt to create a new Mac OS X web browser that steals the best bits from OmniWeb for its user interface, adds some well-needed […]

Ikea – Yes or No?

Ikea: yes or no? I've heard conflicting things. The nearest store is a two-hour drive (with the upside that we can eat at Monte Cello's on the way home). P.S. For a seven-year-old's room.

A few months ago I was looking for a Color Laser Printer. Due to a strong recommendation (and an incredibly cheap price of $119), I've ended up with an HP OfficeJet Pro 8000. It prints via WiFi and I've already printed some sheets, so I'm happy so far. Reviews on are middling. The average […]
