Roll My Own Ringtone

First of all, I real­ly don’t go in for .mp3 ring tones. I’m actu­al­ly okay with just hav­ing a beepy or ringy ring­tone on my phone. How­ev­er, cus­tom ring­tones do serve a use­ful pur­pose. Now that essen­tial­ly every­one1 car­ries a cell phone with them, know­ing that it is actu­al­ly your phone ring­ing is handy. Of… Con­tin­ue read­ing Roll My Own Ringtone

Sony Doesn’t Get It

Well, it looks like Sony does­n’t get either the Long Tail of gam­ing, nor even the head of gam­ing. From a sto­ry I just seed­ed on Newsvine (as well as my com­ment): Sony Com­put­er Enter­tain­ment of Amer­i­ca spokesper­son Dave Kar­rak­er says Wii should not be direct­ly com­pared to PS3. Inter­viewed by The New York Times… Con­tin­ue read­ing Sony Doesn’t Get It

WordPress on a Terminal

In light of now own­ing a mac, I’m also in the process of get­ting com­fort­able with using the Ter­mi­nal (I was some­what acquiant­ed with the MS-DOS prompt pre­vi­ous­ly). This is main­ly for the pur­pose of access­ing this Word­Press web site for main­tence, etc. So, with that in mind, I thought I’d point out this insane… Con­tin­ue read­ing Word­Press on a Terminal

Our First Ultrasound

Angela and I went to the doc­tor yes­ter­day morn­ing to have our first ultra­sound. There’s not much to see at 10 weeks, but see­ing a lit­tle flut­ter of pix­els which the nurse referred to as a heart­beat was a great sense of both relief and excite­ment. The nurse also quick­ly point­ed out the head of… Con­tin­ue read­ing Our First Ultrasound

What Is Lost About?

Damon Lin­de­lof, co-cre­a­tor and exec­u­tive pro­duc­er on what Lost is all about: “This show is about peo­ple who are metaphor­i­cal­ly lost in their lives, who get on an air­plane and crash on an island and become phys­i­cal­ly lost on the plan­et Earth, and once they are able to metaphor­i­cal­ly find them­selves in their lives again,… Con­tin­ue read­ing What Is Lost About?

We’re Having A Baby

Well, it’s prob­a­bly the worst kept secret of our lives, but just so the whole world knows: …and we’re both real­ly excit­ed. We had our first doc­tor’s vis­it this after­noon and every­thing looks great! So, around late August the whole world will get to know baby Cole­­man-Dyer (or Dyer-Cole­­man, we’re still work­ing that out). We’ve been dying… Con­tin­ue read­ing We’re Hav­ing A Baby

MacWorld SF – 2007 Edition

It looks like this is an annu­al thing for me, so I’ll give it anoth­er go. Angela and I are ever-so-slow­­ly mak­ing the shift (back) towards using Apple hard­ware and soft­ware in our lives, so I do have quite a bit of inter­est in Mac­World each year. Plus, it’s nice to watch the stock jump!… Con­tin­ue read­ing Mac­World SF – 2007 Edition
