just like real life.

Sometimes, I wonder. I have had glasses for two years, which I mainly got due to the terrible headaches that I developed during my “stare at the screens under florescent lighting” workdays. I can safely say that they have made a big improvement. The headaches have gone, for the most part, but I still have […]

oh, bother…

Why am I, nearly nine years after my first blog post (All the fake all the time), staring at the Add New Post editor again? There have been a number (6, 7, 8?) of blogs that I’ve started in those years, most of which went nowhere. Realizing I’ve had nothing to say seemed to not […]

Resolving…

Well, with all my whining about advertising and the evils of microsoft, apple, facebook and google, i decided that i would try out a new years resolution… Which is: To stop using internet services that support themselves by datamining their users. To this end, i want to stop all usage of: Google.com (while logged into […]

Fubar…

As I am sure I all well notorious for, I harbor a general dislike for all web browsers, email clients and media players. I recall ones I liked back in the day (Netscape Navigator, Eudora and Soundjam), but those are all long gone (or just too long in the tooth)… So I spend many and […]

Pry it from my cold, dead hands… AKA, Rest in peace

Ah, well. Though it has been long expected, I still feel a bit stunned about the passing of Steve Jobs. I have watched quite a bit of “American Morning” this day and have been taking in the coverage of Steve’s passing. This mass popular recognition of Jobs, while profoundly deserved, is (lamely) somewhat irritating to […]

Team spirit…

Sometimes, as I get a couple of hours into my shift at work, I wonder if I will actually go the entire work day without exchanging any words with, or coming face-to-face, either one of the other members of my department. Honestly, it never actually happens, as my boss always makes sure to at least […]

Here’s a thought…

Let’s abandon all of these facebook, myspace,flickr, picasa, creepster(?) Google+ sites! Those sites that are set up as “free”, so that they can just get you to sell yourself off. You know, the same way that broadcast television used to be free. Ever wonder why industries that give away their products for free could make […]

Talk about Schmupgrade…

Seemingly, this new version of WordPress has decided that it wants to remove all spaces after commas. I find that very unsightly. Word to the wise, before upgrading anything, always do a google search to see if there are any issues with the newest version. Update: seemingly the problem is actually with this theme. Regardless, […]

Endlessly intriguing.

One thing that I must say that I like about Vermont (aside from the lack of roadside advertising, which is reason enough to live here), is the crazy notion of the New England town. When I first met my wife, it took me months (literally) to really get my head around how completely different things […]

Hot and Nasty…

Not that I think much of being a coffee consumer, I must admit that I am one. Though my scope is generally limited to the free coffee at work and French-pressed Chock Full O’ Nuts during the weekend at home…I do still have my standards. I am, after all, at work where the general public […]
