I watched this video on TED today. It’s actually a pretty interesting video on computer viruses:

If Only I Had a Paper to Write

Just bought one of these. I really like it a lot. I’ve sat down at my computer several times since then just wishing that I had something significant to type so I could use it more. It feels really nice to type on it. It also connects to my computer through the same unifying receiver […]

Browser Compatibility

I was going through the information for the visitors to my blog during the last couple of days and discovered that one visitor came to the site using Internet Explorer 7. So I decided I better double check that my site was in fact compatible with IE7. Turns out there were some serious issues viewing […]

Multi-Thread Chatting

It’s not uncommon for people to chat online with multiple people simultaneously and keep it all straight. Sometimes I really wish you could open up multiple chat windows with the same person so we can talk about different topics simultaneously. I don’t think it’d be any more complicated to keep straight than chatting with multiple […]

Oh Very Funny

I saw this on CNN a little while ago.  Today I had to do some hunting to find it again.  Probably one of the funniest commercials ever. I’ve watched this a whole bunch of times; I laugh every time.

Microsoft Windows Live Writer

Using Word to publish posts worked great initially.  Finally, I had a good […]

Withdrawals from Thinking

It has been quite a while since I’ve been so intent on an activity that I’ve dreamed about it at night. For example, when I was in high school there was a while that I was programming during all of my free time; I remember dreaming about C++ at night often. Then I started playing […]

Great News

One of the primary reasons that I haven’t posted to my blog during the past while is that my computer quit booting up about a week and a half ago. Initial indications made me suspect that the motherboard had fried. I’ve had a lot of things going on and have been out of town, so […]

My New About Me Page

I have never been satisfied with Blogger’s profile functionality: it is pretty limited in what you can write about yourself and it is in the Blogger theme, which I think looks kind of tacky. So I’ve been thinking about coming up with a better solution for quite a while and have finally done it. I […]

Microsoft Excel for Poets

A few days ago Dave, Andrew, Janelle and I were discussing books that we would each be inclined and/or qualified to write. In light of my recent adventures with poetry, Andrew observed that I was uniquely poised to write the reference book Microsoft Excel for Poets. I’m sure such a book has not previously been […]
