Let's talk about gun control

Let’s talk about gun control

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

I don’t own a gun. I want one… heck, I’ve made lists of guns I’d want to buy… but this post isn’t about that. It’s about the absolute insanity of “gun nut” types when it comes to even trying to have a discussion about gun control. So I figured, why not take this gun debate […]

ToorCamp 2012 Write Up Wrap Up

Monday, August 13th, 2012

Well ToorCamp 2012 is over, and there is plenty to show for it. I ended up going after winning a ticket by answering a GeekWire tech-tune challenge correctly, and offered to write a few “camp journal” style posts for them while I was at it. GeekWire – Arrival (pdf) – Day 1 (pdf) – Day […]

I love HD because it shatters facades

I love HD because it shatters facades

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Every once in a while I spend a few minutes of down time searching Google Images with random words. Then I crank up the resolution filter to see if I can find any interesting photos or infographics that are “70 MP or larger”. I love high resolution photos for many reasons, but I have to […]

Spied this on the floor of the bathroom and actually laughed out loud. Thanks Glamour for getting both sides of the story. What a bunch of morons.

RTOTD – Uniquely “Earthian” traits?

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Random Thought Of The Day I purchase video games based on a policy I set forth a long time ago. New Xbox 360 games run $60, and I purchase new games about once every 6 months or so. The challenge I set for myself is that I can spend $60 on games but I cannot […]

Homeowners forclose on Bank Of America!

Homeowners forclose on Bank Of America!

Monday, June 6th, 2011

This has to be one of the best things I’ve ever heard of. A homeowner forecloses on a bank! Collier County, Florida — Have you heard the one about a homeowner foreclosing on a bank? Well, it has happened in Florida and involves a North Carolina based bank. Instead of Bank of America foreclosing on […]

RTOTD - Origins of ritual

RTOTD – Origins of ritual

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

Random Thought Of The Day I felt a bit sick today, so I spent the day on the couch watching programs from pbs.org. I watched this one about Stonehenge and how new technologies were shedding light on things the original excavations in the 20’s and 30’s were unable to uncover. They also found more henge […]

RTOTD – Belief

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Random Thought Of The Day Ok, blog posts have been slim lately because I’ve been busy as all get-out. I constantly have random thoughts that I think, with adequate time, could be expanded into a great blog post. But, today and for the foreseeable future, time is in short supply. Instead, I’m going to commit […]

Are you a net-head?

Are you a net-head?

Monday, November 29th, 2010

I had a moment today where I was acting like a net-head; I was using the Internet during real-time conversation to instantly learn about what I was talking about, as I was talking about it. Now, I’ve been programming computers since I was 7 years old, back when a 2400bps modem cost a fortune and […]
