Seriously, as a writer who presumably cares about his craft, you'd think he'd get this right. Next time I check in will he be talking about how "your not going to like" something or "what there trying to say" or something?

Grace Hopper on Letterman

When discussing the first computer - the Mark I at Harvard - a funny exchange: Letterman: How did you know so much about computers then?" Hopper: I didn't. It was the first one.

More Money Redesigns

Another monetary redesign, another flop. Ugh. The first African American president? And he trumps the first president (of any color, height, weight, etc.) HOW??? Jeez. I don't care what party you support, that's just stupid.

Penguins Season Schedules

Desktop pictures (wallpapers), .ics, Excel, and other formats, all available now for download from the Penguins site.

Fall TV Shows

Any fall TV shows you plan to watch? I can't say that there are many (or any?) that I'm looking to watch. I'll continue to watch Bones, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Chuck, Fringe, 30 Rock, Castle, and a few others. I'll pick up a few shows like Blue Bloods and give […]

Ravine Flyer II

I haven't been on it yet, but this looks fun. Too bad Waldameer is closed for the season soon.

Netflix on iPhone

I've been playing with it off and on, and I've gotta say I'm impressed. Over 3G I experience no buffering issues, good sound quality, and an incredibly impressive resolution. These are still frames, so they're going to look blockier than things look in motion, but I still think they're impressively detailed:

Tiger Oil Memos

Do not speak to me when you see me. If I want to to speak to you, I will do so. I want to save my throat. I don't want to ruin it by saying hello to all of you sons-of-bitches. More here. Hilarious.

I originally goofed this survey up by not including the proper spacing in the {democracy:##} block, so here it is again: How do you carry your cash, cards, licenses, etc.? Wallet Money Clip Other View Results I've been a lifelong "wallet" guy, but I'm using a MoneyClamp and kinda digging it. If you visit The […]

Dissection Kits

Anyone do any dissections at home? It seems that a kit - with six to eight specimens to dissect - will run only about $50, and for that price it'll be a really fun thing to do together over the winter.

Facebook Lists

I've just spent 20 minutes or so adding friends to two lists on Facebook: "Friends & Family" and "Golf." I thought that posts could be made available to people based on the list in which you've put them, but I can't seem to find that option. Is it available somewhere? Am I missing it somehow?

I'm building a website for a piece of software that I'll be selling shortly. I've read Matt Gemmell's take on software websites and, in general, agree with him. I will say this, though: a site can change its goals fairly drastically if it's trying to sell $19 software or $500 software, and not always in […]

Hershey, Here We Come

As he did last year, Dave managed to finish high enough in the local qualifier for the National Club Pro Championship, which will be played in Hershey, PA next year. Woo! Congrats to Dave, and I look forward to bettering the top-50 finish we had this year.

Wallet vs. Money Clip
