Sports Blackouts

Good piece by Gedeon called "Why Won't TV Sports Blackouts Just Die Already?" I haven't had a game I've wanted to see blacked out in years, but I only care about Pittsburgh sports (no basketball) and rarely get the chance - or have the interest for the past 20 years - in watching the Pirates.

While looking for an alternative to ClipMenu I found CopyPastePro. Unfortunately, I hate three things about it that almost make it a deal breaker: Inability to use a separate keyboard shortcut (like ctrl-cmd-v). CopyPastePro forces cmd-opt-ctrl-v, which is 10x as difficult as ctrl-cmd-v. It misses or prevents the occasional copy. I'll copy a URL, for […]

Power of Keynote for Web Design

People apparently use Keynote as a design/mockup tool for web development (and other things). Cool. Me, I'm just hoping Keynote, Pages, and Numbers get an update for 10.8. They're feeling a bit long in the tooth. Still the best, but let's see what the next iteration gives us.

Bezos Finds Shuttle Engines

I like it when really really rich people spend their money on things that benefit more than just themselves. NASA is one of the few institutions I know that can inspire five-year-olds. It sure inspired me, and with this endeavor, maybe we can inspire a few more youth to invent and explore.

For our latest mission we filled a New York park with eight sets of identical quadruplets, creating a surreal experience for anyone who happened to be walking through the park.

Life’s Too Short

"Life is too short to be little. Man is never so manly as when he feels deeply, acts boldly, and expresses himself with frankness and with fervor." - Benjamin Disraeli

I have a partner in a business. Our shares aren't equal, but we'd like to set up a business (like an LLC or something, to protect us individually from liability). We're paid a sum of money once each month, and the next day, we'd each withdraw our percentage to our personal bank accounts. I don't […]

Yay, I’m 34

30/31/32 are your early 30s, then 33-36 are definitely your mid-30s. Maybe "early" excludes 30 and covers 31-33, but in either case, as of today, I'm in my mid-30s for sure.

ClipMenu Alternative

Is there an alternative to ClipMenu that's being actively updated?

200+ Miles Running

I've now run over 200 miles, and the picture to the right says "202" right now (201.89 miles). Here's a weekly look at my mileage. The "1" on week 1 is due to the fact that DailyMile weeks start on Mondays and January 1 was a Sunday. 🙂 The gap came when I took ten […]

People are REALLY Dumb

I take back my post yesterday. They're REALLY dumb.

People are Dumb

That is all.
