Ring (Doorbell)

I wonder how well the thing holds up to the elements, namely, cold and rain. I could pretty easily foresee replacing two doorbells, and one of them is not beneath a roof on the patio, it's on the exposed side of the house. Plus, Erie, PA gets awfully cold.

Any discounts out there…?

Edit: Reviews are not terribly flattering.

Dropbox Needs a “dropbox”

You want to send a file to a friend. They have Dropbox. You have Dropbox. Cool, right?

Dropbox is not entirely well named, because unfortunately, you can't easily "drop" something on someone else's Dropbox.

Instead, you have to upload the file to your Dropbox, give your friend the URL, await confirmation that your friend got it, and then delete it from your Dropbox.

Why not allow me to set aside 200 MB or 2 GB or whatever size I want to act as an actual "dropbox" for people to share files with me (or for me to share with them)?

There aren't even any real good solutions to allow this. Search for "uploading to a friend's Dropbox" or "allow uploads to my Dropbox" and the best you'll get are some third-party hacks (and some cost money).

Lame. C'mon, Dropbox. You can do this…

Direct Download Facebook Videos

Step 1: Get direct download link for the videos uploaded in facebook
Step 2: Get Facebook Video Direct Download Link

You can skip step 1 if you don't care about the "why" part. 🙂

Siri Still Can’t Spell My Name (Or My Wife’s)

Still waiting…. My name is Erik. My wife's name is Carey.

I don't even have a "Carrie" in my phone's contacts, yet… that's how Siri insists on spelling it.

So much for the "contextual" suggestions and autocorrections. I can't remember the last time I wanted to type "Erik" or "Carrie."

Ping Pong Balls and Pepsi Commercial

Pepsi still sucks though. 🙂 Haven't had one in well over a decade now…

Beginning Some Kettlebell Workouts

Kettlebell - Simple & Sinister eBook: Pavel Tsatsouline on Kindle.

Since I rarely find the time to run anymore (or frankly the motivation), this could be a handy way to go about doing a bit more than I manage to do now.

My Rogue Kettlebells arrived yesterday. I think they'll be warm by Monday. 🙂

Flaming Balls of Ping (Pong)

Where can I get some of those flaming balls? 😛


I was tempted to build my own omelette with Grilled diced ham, smoked bacon, and American cheese. $8.79 right?

Or I could just order the Smoked Bacon & Ham Omelette for $0.50 more…

The Best Thing I Did in 2014?

Lowest Score Wins. Pick up your copy today.

Of course, Analyzr, 5SK®, Golf Evolution, The Sand Trap, and others continue to do well.

My family is happy and healthy. The kiddo needs a minor attitude adjustment, but overall, I wouldn't trade her for anyone. Most days. 🙂

Here's to good things in 2015.

Beginning Kettle Bell Workouts

I've followed Mike's advice here: Beginning Kettle Bell Workouts?. I spent some money on some kettle bells and got this book (on Kindle).

I'm hopeful that I can squeeze this in while I watch Penguins games or whatever. Running has not happened in a loooooong time. If it's not the time, it's the weather, or something else.
