Love at First Sight

I was in Best Buy several weeks ago and saw a laptop from 30 or 40 feet away. I instantly knew it was different and that I really wanted it. After not too much time of examining it I decided that I didn’t really want it—I really, really wanted it. A week later I discovered […]

Wireless Keyboard and Mouse from Amazon

Many people have admired my mouse and keyboard. I still love them and highly recommend them. For those that would like to purchase the same ones, here they are. I have signed up for an affiliate account through Amazon so if you click on these links to make your purchase I will get a small […]

Mod 5 Volume Levels

Perhaps I shouldn’t admit this, but yesterday while driving I realized that I typically only use volume levels on my car stereo that evenly divide by 5. It turns out that under very rare circumstances, this isn’t actually sufficient. Yesterday was such an occasion: 35 was too loud and 30 wasn’t quite loud enough. I […]


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


For some reason, recently I’ve regularly been feeling like my car is a target. I haven’t felt comfortable even leaving my sunglasses in the car. It certainly doesn’t help that the Honda Civic is the single most stolen car in a lot of states. I got a garage at my apartment temporarily, but for the […]

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.

Webforms, Webforms, Webforms

I think I’ve mentioned that my job is typically not very challenging.  A lot of the time it is quite boring, though fortunately I get extra projects every so often that are interesting enough to keep things tolerable.  But this week’s extra project has been the worst stuff I’ve had to do there yet. The […]

Crossed Connections

I work for a company that provides technology to assist in efficiently managing leads and/or customers. It also integrates with the telephone system to provide some pretty cool telephony tools for both inbound and outbound calling. The integration with the phone system works quite well most of the time, but the other day I heard […]

Blogger Has A New Editor

I just accidentally stumbled across the fact that Blogger has a new post editor. You have to turn it on though—apparently it’s not turned on by default.  Go to Settings, then Basic, then Post Editor, and select Updated editor.  So far it looks pretty sweet. Update: Now that I have written a post with this […]
