  • Holidays Officially Over

    Back at work, kids will go back soon-ish. A new year has begun in full force. Jobs to be done: get Wii fixed, get out of debt, get a handle on taxes, figure out where Leah and I will live next. I’ll ship the Wii today. The rest are nontrivial, but can be managed.


  • Happy New Year!

    Random image, for a not bad year. Lovely mellow night here with the kids, in and out at parties. HAPPY NEW YEAR Y’ALL!!!

  • Misc Never Knows

    I’m up relatively early this morning. I can hear rain outside the window of the office. Leah acquired some of the lovely All Natural Cola by Whole Foods and I’m having one of those. I feel a tickle in my nose and I think I might be getting a cold. That’s not optimal. I have…


  • Misc, Misc, everywhere… and not a drop to drink

    Blurbomat points to the review of MacOS 10.5, “Leopard” on Ars Technica. Anil Dash has no sense of humor about one icon. I wish Windows had included Mac networking by default years ago. Sadly, no. Maybe something based on: I upgraded this blog to WordPress 2.3.1. Bugfixes and an easy transition from 2.3. I’m so…

  • Play Misc-y for Me

    I’ve been reading and listening to lots about animation, and one of the more fun things has been Spline Cast, a podcast about 3-D animation. My favorite podcast right now is Dave Ramsey’s 1 hour version of his show. Don’t bother with the 3-hour version, it’s not really free. My previous favorite podcast is Harry…

  • Good Weekend

    It was a good weekend. Pumpkin pie. Paychecks arrived on-time. Bills paid on-time. Leah‘s still back: awesome. Latest photos? Terrific. Heard good things from my sister by text message about the cytology of my Mom’s cancer. She continues to recover from her surgery. As Drudge would say… developing. Not looking forward to the traffic today…

  • Morning is the time for Miscellany

    Danah Boyd is surprised to be used as a pack mule for some great marketing. I think it’s the nature of the beast. When something hits your gut, it’s natural to try and promote it. Taking a step back and realizing you’re part of someone’s street team can be a little disorienting! Via The Beat,…

  • Morning’s Miscellany

    Zappa Documentary on YouTube, Pointed to by Kill Ugly Radio: 10 Zen Monkeys asks writers Is The Net Good For Writers? My favorite is Clay Shirky’s. My current musical obsessions: Gerry Rafferty’s Baker Street, Foo Fighter’s Baker Street, Toy Doll’s Nellie the Elephant, Siouxsee & the Banshees Dear Prudence, Christine, and The Passenger, and most…

  • Stray Data

    I got an eye exam recently. I have reading glasses coming my way in 7 to 10 business days. I have noticed in recent years my eyes get tireder when I read. Still no new car. We need to rectify this and have been getting by with rentals. Time to do the deed. * We…

  • Sidebar Links, Goodbye!

    On the main page of this blog I used to have a giant list of links. Well, that list is no more, and I’m even removing it from the side of the links page. Since it was last updated on 15 March 2004 it’s a good bet I’m not going to maintain any such list…


  • stew plays, joe mulls

    So the 50 minute Stew show yesterday was wonderful. Totally worth the train ride and Dash ride and lack of usable WiFi signals at California Plaza. I even got to take a few minutes to say hey to Stew. I am such a fan. I actually met him in September last year. I’ve posted some…

  • Snippets from the last two weeks

    Helping make Easter baskets which included saltwater taffy and Botan rice candy. Bodysurfing the day before Easter in the cold waters of the Coronado strand. Drinking Chai and checking RSS feeds at Influx. Getting an 80 on my most recent Statistics test. Disappointment ensues, but I think my A is still secure. Doing a presentation…

  • Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Awesome party last night. You really had to be there. Leah and I are blessed with wonderful friends. I’m tired but I’m working, yeah The new place is officially christened. In spoons and beer and the kind of excellent talk you get when people have no agendas and chill out the way human beings can…

  • Moving Continues.

    There is internet here. I’m stunned. I am incredibly achy though. Even more moving tomorrow. Everything I have is in boxes. My pal John helped out a lot today. Leah’s stuff is all here. Leah made pasta tonight. Even though much of what is here is in boxes, it feels homey. I love Leah. This…

  • A whole bunch of links and I think they all work and are current. But no promises.

  • Back From Root Canal, A Stream, Dada?

    I feel ornery. But not bad. Only one moment of horrible pain. They re-dosed me with the injected anesthetic at that point. Aaaaah. Work good this week. Good developments there lately. Slightly more job security in the temp role. Deliberately vague about that, as usual. Leah brought me home. But first, we went to the…

  • More Miscellaneous Links…

    David Hyatt, a developer on Safari (a Mac web browser), has a great rant about the terrible rerporting coming out of news.com on browsers. Basically, CNET reporters don’t appear to have done any research. It’s good that MsHumm is alive and back in business. I had planned on giving blood this Monday (it’s near where…
