I just wanted to post a short message here wishing all my readers (okay, my Mom & Dad!) a Merry Christmas. Also, Happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus and all other biggie-December holidays (hence, the non-specific ‘Happy Holidays’ that has some folks banning stores). Best wishes and Happy New Year. I’m currently with my wife visiting with all… Continue reading Merry Christmas!
How come I don’t see commercials this cool on television? Seriously, I wouldn’t fast-forward right through them with TiVo if 1 out of 10 were this fun to watch. Okay, so this isn’t a real commercial for anything, but still; you could place robots like this in Bengay commercials and I’d watch the religiously. The… Continue reading Robocop
Here I was feeling sorry for myself that I was out on site until very early this morning. Well around 8:00am Angela called me to tell me Harry was bleeding badly and needed to be taken to the Vet. Turns out he just had a small tear in his ear, so he’s okay. I don’t… Continue reading And I Thought I Was Having A Bad Day
Well, I’ve just come back in from the cold. Literally. I’ve been out most all night and into the morning at a construction site in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia on a construction monitoring job. Yes, I watch people work on construction. It’s not a bad gig, if you’ve got long thermal underwear and… Continue reading This Site’s Not All That’s Under Construction
Well, I just returned home from the December meeting of the Richmond Democratic MeetUp. This is the second one of these Meetups I’ve been to, and I can’t decide which one dissapointed me more. The first one was nothing but myself and four others sitting at a local coffee shop complaining about individuals in power… Continue reading MeetUp… For What?
I saw a link for this and thought I’d find out more. I imagine that if everybody in America bought a FOXBlocker, the average IQ would go up about 10 points. This is simply an inline cable filter. While the device itself doesn’t really do any more than my never watching that channel; the company… Continue reading Passive Aggressive Hilarious
Bridge of GlassOriginally uploaded by super_structure. Per Wired’s recommendation (updated link here), I signed up for an account at Flickr; and I’m already glad I did. Within a matter of minutes I had some photos uploaded, tagged, titled, and grouped. Shortly thereafter, people were already adding comments. Currently, I just have some photos of several… Continue reading I Now Seem To Suffer From Insomnia
I noticed a comment on a headline at George Hotelling’s 90% Crud blog this morning that rung true with me. He noted that he was suffering from Outrage fatigue over some news article about rigged e‑vote machines in FL. I don’t know anything about the story, I don’t necessarily trust the source (BlueLemur, that is),… Continue reading I Suffer From Outrage Fatigue
So, which makes me a bigger geek? That I’m selling a bunch of old home network equipment on ebay, or the very fact that I have all this stuff in the first place? Okay, I’ve had a home network for several years now, and I’ve been trying to upgrade along the way. First wired with… Continue reading What Is Geeky?
Well, I realize it might not quite show yet, but I’m working diligently on this site overhaul this weekend. Of course, the front end is pretty much done at this point, with just cosmetics to be improved. Of course, some content other telling people that I’m working on it might be nice. That’s all to… Continue reading Working Through The Night
