Adobe vs. Apple

See "Safari" anywhere on that one flower to the left? Hmmm… didn't think so. Got two Chromes though!


Who says "Macintosh" anymore?

The Doer of Deeds

A quote from Teddy Roosevelt: It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and […]

Five Years

Carey and I have now been married for five years. Last year we forgot our anniversary until several days later. This year, no. What will we do? Nothing. 🙂 Like our birthdays, it's just another day. Carey plays in her golf league later this evening and I'll be at the Academy most of the day. […]

Lexus LFA

Mmmmmmmmm. OK. Only $400k and coming in 2012, though? I configured my own and it let me download a JPEG… but the JPEG wasn't even large enough to use as a desktop picture (wallpaper).

Ivan in Roughly Five Weeks

The guy on the left came from the David Leadbetter Academy. He spent two months and several, several thousand dollars there. The guy on the right has spent about half the time and about a quarter of the money here in Erie, PA. Go go Stack and Tilt. 😀 Go go Ivan! P.S. Ivan's here […]

Falling Behind

So lately I've been falling behind on the blog. I still write something nearly every day, but most days they amount to something like this: "BK ND / Other students" Yeah, that's what I had for nearly two weeks for yesterday's post. Not that anyone cares (hi), I've vowed to catch up. I will catch […]

Brian Kelley was going to be at the Stack and Tilt school today. He cancelled at the last minute, but Dave's heading to Notre Dame to teach him next week. Who is Brian Kelley? Oh, just the head football coach of Notre Dame. He's replaced the despised-by-everyone Charlie Weis. Stack and Tilt - and Golf […]

EA Sports NHL 11 Video

Uhm, yes, please! (I don't know if embedding a Facebook video will work, but I hope so.)

DirecTV Whole Home

I read about DirecTV's Whole Home service today and excitedly logged in to my account to upgrade. I quickly saw that the button to upgrade was not listed as available, but took heart in the "please call to activate" text. Turns out that my two HD DVRs with ethernet (both of which are connected to […]

This bug - what else can you call it when a rather popular browser just completely drops support for a somewhat common way to encode an incredibly popular file type - cost me several hours of time. JPEGs encoded in the CMYK simply show up as the little red "x" with no explanation whatsoever. I […]

DirecTV has a new "Parental" thing which uses common sense media to let parents know about the shows. Big Bang Theory is rated "Iffy for 13+" ((Does that mean it's not iffy for 13 and under?)) and carries with it the following descriptive blocks: Parents Need to Know: Parents need to know that htere's a […]

I've scheduled my PGA/PGM Qualifying test. I've probably pushed it off too far but it's scheduled for July 15 at 9:00am. I'll travel to Buffalo to do it - the nearest testing facility - and I think it should not be that difficult. But with a deadline set, it'll force me to actually read the […]

I've recently come to the nearly final conclusion that the hinge in the MacBook is affecting the AirPort card. A loose wire or a loose connection somewhere is likely at fault, because when the screen is in a range of about +/- 20° from a right angle to the keyboard portion, the wireless signal seems […]
