It’s been a long time since I’ve actually gotten to play, but I really enjoy the game “World of Warcraft”. Blizzard has done a good job of making a game that appeals to both the Hard Core and Casual players (I definitely fall in the latter category). When I do get time, I can generally […]
Here are a couple of links to some interesting iTunes Smart Playlist ideas: Music Only Type Playlists and Playlist for packrats The first link starts out with building a “Music Only” smart playlist, then expands on it by building a “New and Unlistened to” list and others to get you to rate your songs, and […]
About two weeks ago I ordered a new 20″ iMac Core 2 Duo with 2 GB RAM and an 256MB RAM upgrade to the video card. So I’ve since “switched” from a main Windows desktop to an iMac running OS X. Now, those that know me from back in high school will remember a time […]
I’ve moved my domains over to TextDrive from my co-lo. I couldn’t justify the cost of the co-lo or have the time to properly manage my own machine any more. So for the first time my domains aren’t being hosted on equipment owned and run by myself. But I’m kinda glad to be rid of […]
Ever since the Mac Mini came out I’ve been wanting one. I enjoy using a Mac with OS X for a lot of the development I do. I really need the Unix underneath, but at the same time the Linux GUIs drive me crazy most of the time. OS X is a very nice mix […]
This is an amazing set of pictures: http://www.flickr.com/photos/w00kie/sets/180637/ They aren’t Photoshoped images. It’s a picture of the background as the Desktop picture giving an illusion of transparency. The most impressive one to me is this one.
I know I’m a little behind the news here, but I started using Ta-Da List the day it came out and I loved it from the start. One of the coolest things is I can share the list with anyone…so for one, I’ve made a list for my wife to use for “Honey Do” items. […]
A while back Robert mentioned to me he was going to make the jump to Vonage, a Voice Over IP (VOIP) telephone service created to replace your actual phone company. I told him it all looked good, but to let me know what he thought after using it for a while. After about a month […]
Will sent me the following link: http://www.malevole.com/mv/misc/killerquiz/ The challenge is to figure out if the person pictured invented a computer programming language or were a serial killer. I didn’t do so well…I only got 4 out of 10 correct. Yikes!
So Will sent me a link this morning..and lo and behold, someone with time on their hands has reverse engineered the Google Suggest stuff. http://serversideguy.blogspot.com/2004/12/google-suggest-dissected.html
Google never ceases to amaze me. Try this version of their search engine: http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1 Then start typing a search and be amazed!
This has to be one of my favorite 404 error pages ever. Very closely followed by the SGI crying baby, for which I can not find a link to show. For those of you not familiar with a “404 Page”, it’s the term given to the page served by the webserver when it can’t find […]

I went to a Postgresql seminar near Philadelphia today that was very fun. Not necessarily the Postgresql part ( although it was good and I learned some things I didn’t know ), but I got to meet some people there I had only met via message boards or IM. Let’s see, Robert Sfeir ( someone […]
