Oh yeah, I found a 500GB hard drive…

Um, so, right after re-doing the Home Com­put­ing Mas­ter Plan, I found this 500 GB hard dri­ve lying around.  Okay, so it was­n’t “lying around,” exact­ly.  It was hid­den inside a $25 SATA dri­ve case.  I’d put it there when I got the bare dri­ve from Dri­veSavers (along with my $2,000 flash­light) with all my […]

Twistori

I think I love twistori.  It feels like Post­Se­cret, but more believ­able, and with less hate.  I wish I could watch all day.

Securing virtual territory for the kids

I was look­ing over all the domain names I have reg­is­tered over the years, and remem­bered that I had reg­is­tered full name domains for each of my chil­dren.  Some­day, the log­ic went, they will want their own web sites, and they will be grate­ful that I had the fore­sight to grab these while I still […]

I’m Back!

One new job lat­er, I’m back.  It is clear that I won’t be post­ing at the same (tor­rid?) pace that I was when I was at home eight hours a day.  I’m not even clear if I’ll be post­ing from work at all (maybe just Tweets), which leaves me between two and three hours at […]

Why I’m waiting on a new computer

Got a new job, got an old iMac (800 MHz G4!), gonna get a new com­put­er!  Right?  After spend­ing two sol­id days re-mas­ter­ing the Home Com­put­ing Mas­ter Plan, I think I can safe­ly say, maybe. The first thing that has to hap­pen is item num­ber one in the Mas­ter Plan.  We need a new disk […]

Wrapping up the sports season of a lifetime

Now that col­lege bas­ket­ball is over, I can mark the end of the most amaz­ing sport­ing sea­son I am like­ly to ever enjoy. First the Red Sox win the World Series (again).  Then KU’s woe­ful col­lege foot­ball pro­gram pulls the most amaz­ing per­for­mance ever out of its col­lec­tive bum, ends the sea­son 12–1 with a […]

Riding the rails from Lawrence

When I was a wee boy, grow­ing up in Argenti­na, we used to take the train all the time.  We’d walk to the sta­tion, wait for the train, get on, and go places.  I don’t remem­ber where we’d go, and frankly, I don’t think that was too impor­tant at the time.  I was on a […]

Flickr now does long photos (aka video)

I’m sure you’ve seen this already, but it is cool.  They call them “long pho­tos” which is pret­ty cute.  They adhere to all the same access stan­dards as pho­tos, as far as pri­va­cy feeds, search­ing, etc.  The length is short (90 sec­onds) and the size is small (150 MB) but I think most of my […]

Thoughts I had while watching Kansas win

Watch­ing the game last night, there were a lot of non-game relat­ed things I want­ed to touch on.  This might be of more inter­est to those of you who haven’t been fol­low­ing KU bas­ket­ball all sea­son. God.  In all the play­er inter­views before the game, dur­ing all the plays of the game, dur­ing all the […]

We watched KU win the National Championship

We watched the game at home, live (not delayed via TiVo), as it tipped late enough that we were done with all par­ent­ing duties.  Our boys were tucked safe­ly in their beds, dreams of Jay­hawks danc­ing through their heads.  They both wore their new KU shirts to school, and the lit­tlest one (he’s 22 months […]
