QotD: Opera

Question: Does anyone care that Opera 8 for Mac OS X was released? My Answer: I don't. I was interested in using alternative browsers for about a month, oohhhhhh, four years ago or so. Not anymore. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Sell on eBay

Question: Do you sell on eBay? My Answer: Very, very rarely. I'm considering using iSale, but the reviews on MacUpdate are quite mixed. It won an Apple Design Award this year, but that's hardly an indication of anything. If you use iSale, what are your opinions? (P.S. I'll be selling Beanie Babies and a ton […]

QotD: URL Pet Peeves

Question: What are your URL pet peeves, if you have any? My Answer: I hate it when "www" doesn't work. For example, didn't work for the longest time (it does today, at least, by forwarding to www.). I don't care for dashes, but I don't know that it's a real "peeve" of mine. I […]

QotD: Widgets

Question: How many Dashboard Widgets do you have? My Answer: 14 standard widgets in /Library/Widgets and an additional 10 in ~/Library/Widgets (Air Traffic Control, DaisyTracker, Delicious Library [which still doesn't work], DoppleViewer, Golf Tips, Package Tracker, Self Defense Counter, Stats for AdSense, TV Tracker, Type Cast). I don't necessarily like all of the third-party ones, […]

QotD: Headphones

Question: What headphones do you use with your iPod? My Answer: I use the stock ones, but then again, I rarely use the ear buds or headphones. I have some $300 noise-cancelling headphones (Sony) downstairs in a bag somewhere, and when I'm on a plane or a train I'll take those instead. You are encouraged […]

QotD: Sports

Question: What sports do you currently play? My Answer: Golf. Softball. Bike riding (hardly a sport, but I'll take what I can get). That's about it. I hope to find someone for some raquetball matches, but right now life's a bit too hectic to worry about that. You are encouraged to answer the Question of […]

QotD: Persuasion

Question: Is persuasion dead? My Answer: Based on a recent NYT column, this question is. Talking like Yoda, I am. Anyway, my answer is that on a large scale, I think that persuasion is largely dead. Then again, I'm not ever sure it was ever alive. Politics doesn't persuade anyone anymore, and Steve Jobs has […]

QotD: Intel

Question: Do you agree or disagree with Apple's decision to move to Intel? My Answer: It's too early for me to tell, as I've not read much about it, but I'm curious what y'all might have to say. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on […]

QotD: Cell Minutes

Question: How many minutes, on average, do you rack up on your cell phone in an average month? My Answer: Anywhere between 1,000 and 1,500 or so all by myself. Carey and I have a joint plan now and are getting a home phone with local only service so that calling our parents, toll-free numbers, […]

QotD: Moving Fun

Question: What's your favorite thing about moving? My Answer: Finding new spaces to put things. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Moving Dread

Question: What's your least favorite thing about moving? My Answer: Packing and carrying. The aches, the hassle, the dust, the weight, the sore muscles… ugh! You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Happiness

Question: Have you ever told a friend that you seriously question whether he or she is happy or not? My Answer: Uhhh, yep. One of those times was recent enough that I am not sure how the outcome will be, but The friend is a good person and I think the friend's life will be […]

QotD: Pillows

Question: How do you like your pillows? My Answer: Large, thick, and firm. Hmmm, that doesn't quite sound like I'm describing pillows, and neither does "I like pillows that have some meat to them," but that's how I like my pillows. I have TempurPedic pillows right now that work really well. You are encouraged to […]

QotD: Mexican

Question: Do you eat Mexican food? If so, what's your favorite? My Answer: I only really eat tacos. And even then, just with cheese and meat. I don't care if it's spicy - sometimes that's good - and rice isn't bad, and beans are sometimes okay, but lettuce, tomatoes, etc. are no good. Booo! 🙂 […]

QotD: Movie Theaters

Question: What do you think is the single biggest problem with the movie theaters? My Answer: My thoughts mirror those of Mark Cuban (he writes here). I think that the theater and movie experience needs to adapt, and it has not yet. I wait for movies to go to the dollar theater because the experience […]
