April Fails

How do this many things: a) go wrong, b) get caught on camera, c) get sent in to be compiled? The video is roughly four days long!!!

David Feherty on Politics

It's old but it's still good: As for me, my politics are somewhere in the middle—and then way outside both wings. I believe in the death penalty, especially for pro-lifers, child molesters, those opposed to gay marriage, and for stupid dancing in the end zone. I believe in the abolition of estate taxes and the […]

This video seems to be the most highly recommended method. Turn the coat inside out at each sleeve (without inverting the sleeves themselves), fold it at the midpoint, and then fold it halfway in the other direction. And yes, this goes in the "Golf" or "PGA" group since I'll need to do this in the […]

Footee – Soccer and Golf

Yes please!

Two iCloud Articles

Neither is positive. The first is at The Verge. The second, a partial response, is at Ars.

My Father Has Passed Away

My father, who had a lung transplant last year, apparently had a rough weekend, was admitted to the hospital, and my mother and sister withdrew support, resulting in his death at 3:22pm today, three days after my 35th birthday. My father was 64. It's no secret to those who know me well (a very small […]

Michael Malloy When that failed, they decided that it was unlikely that anything Malloy ingested was going to kill him, so the Murder Trust decided to freeze him to death. On a night when the temperature reached -14 °F (-26 °C), Malloy drank until he passed out, was carried to a park, dumped in the snow, […]

Best Trail Running Shoes of Outdoor Retailer Summer 2012 Oooooooooh. I wear TRUE shoes everywhere, but these might be nice for wearing around the house or something… 😉

I’m 35

I guess I can't tell people I'm still in my "early 30s" anymore, can I? 🙂

Stock Effects in Final Cut Pro X

I'm seriously considering purchasing Final Cut Pro X, but I have one quick question: how good are the stock effects (title screens, lower thirds type stuff/chirons, etc.)? iMovie is fine for basic stuff, but at the end of the day everybody knows you've used iMovie. Does Final Cut Pro X come with a decent selection […]

The Sand Trap, a forum I own but which also runs on a platform that I can't tweak myself, has been having some weird issues lately. As few as two or three web pages will beachball Safari. Scrolling via any method (keyboard shortcuts, clicking in the scroll bar, two-finger scrolling) often fails, pages won't load […]

St. Patrick’s Day 2013

Happy March 17. Last year it was almost 80°. Today the temperature in Fahrenheit is closer to the date (the 17th).

Hypercritical: The Case for a True Mac Pro Successor. I had to get a "stopgap" Mac Pro last year.

Mini DV to iMovie

I've got about 100 MiniDV tapes I'd like to import. Ideally they'll simply end up as one movie file per tape. But the method for importing seems to be a rather obnoxious one. Importing (even automatically) is a real-time process, and that's fine, except then you're left with a ton of .dv files - some […]
