QotD: Printing

Question: How often do you print from your computer? My Answer: I print things to PDF about once a day. I print to paper, oh, once every week or two - usually a Pizza Hut coupon or directions to a new place. Receipts and confirmations are printed to PDF and filed away (and, weekly, backed […]

QotD: Small

Question: What's the smallest place in which you've ever lived? My Answer: College dorm rooms are, what, 10' x 20' or so? Or 15'x 20'? Either way, there's my answer. And, I supposed that technically I lived in half of that space. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in […]

QotD: Scam

Question: What's the worst scam for which you've ever fallen? My Answer: I once bought a "porn tape" that supposedly caught two famous women going at it. I knew it was rather silly, and I knew it was a scam so I didn't exactly "fall" for it, but it amused me to the tune of […]

QotD: Electoral College

Question: If you were to design your own electoral college, how would it be designed? My Answer: I don't like that the views of Californians (55) are 1375% as important as those of people living in Maine. I think that there's a great disparity. I don't think that DC should have its own three votes. […]

QotD: September 11

Question: What, if anything, are you doing today in honor of 9/11. My Answer: I'm going to live my life. I think that the biggest thing we can do to stick it to those who oppose our way of life is to live our way of life. You are encouraged to answer the Question of […]

QotD: Trilogies

Question: What's your favorite trilogy? My Answer: Tomorrow, Andy and I are going to watch Die Hard, Die Hard 2: Die Harder, and Die Hard With a Vengeance. Right now I can't think of a better trilogy. Star Wars doesn't win. The Lord of the Rings doesn't win. Most of the others that could beat […]

QotD: Lack of Internet

Question: What's the longest you've ever gone without having Internet access in the past five years? My Answer: Eight days - the past eight. Ugh. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Bedtime

Question: What is your bedtime? My Answer: It used to be 2 or 3am, but now I talk to Carey at about ten and go to bed at about midnight. I wake up at 6 or so and then read for an hour before coming out. Flint is usually awake at seven, or I'd read […]

QotD: iMac G5

Question: What do you think of the new iMac G5? My Answer: I don't like how they look. I don't like vertically-mounted CDs. I think they look rather ridiculous. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Text Editor

Question: What is your favorite text editor? My Answer: Does the previous post answer this? BBEdit. Oh, and on the command line, I use the entirely-too-simple pico. vi or emacs? That's what BBEdit is for! 🙂 You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Selection

Question: What is your system's highlight color? (System Preferences -> Appearance -> Highlight Color on Mac OS X) My Answer: Mine is currently green, having been orange for quite awhile. I grow tired of blue fairly readily - Mac OS X is very blue, after all, and it's easy to lose the selection amongst the […]

QotD: Embarrassed

Question: Should the US basketball team be embarrassed? My Answer: Basketball is a team sport, and like other team sports, chemistry is underrated. If anything, this year's Olympics taught us this. However, that doesn't answer the question. Yeah, they should be embarrassed. Not because they lost, but because they talked so much smack and then […]

QotD: Military Experience

Question: Do you believe that military experience is a necessity for POTUS? My Answer: No. I think, very much so, that it depends on the person. I also think, depending on the person, that military experience could be a negative. I can imagine a situation in which a President, for no other reason than having […]

QotD: Innovation

Question: Where do you want to see the next innovation in computing, big or small? My Answer: I want to see hard disks that are 10x faster than they are today. Hard drives are by far the biggest bottleneck we see today. After that, I'd like to see everyone's Internet connection become 10x faster. You […]

Domain Name Surfing

Sometimes it's fun to check out domain names that are about to expire. DUMBJOKES.NET - Gee, that'll get the traffic! WILLYOU.NET - If you're proposing via a web site, probably not. KIDSWAP.NET - Uhhh… isn't that illegal? ELECTRICFLY.COM - Sounds like a cool name for a movie production company or something. DOGCOOLER.COM - For those […]
