  • On Fuel Economy

    So, Diann and I recently moved, and while the routes to and from work are largely the same for me, I start off on a different section of Highway 520 now. The Prius now averages only about 43 miles/gallon due to the change in road characteristics. Here's the sad thing: I just said it above, […]

  • Movable Type Tags – Simplifying Search URLs

    So now that Movable Type supports Tags, I'm going to have to re-architect the way I've done my categories. I wanted to make this work a little more like Technorati with their tag search, where you can just go type in[tag of interest]. With a little searching on the web, I found this page […]

  • Problem with the RIAA and Recording Industry

    So I've been following all the Engadget and Gizmodo posts about the rumored Argo and Zune. One of the things that jumped out at me was this Engadget article that talked about the possibility that Microsoft would be allowing people to download whatever music they've purchased in iTunes for free — but that “Microsoft will […]

  • Waking up

    In my never-ending quest to wake-up on time, I stumbled across this review of an alarm clock that monitors your sleep cycles and wakes you up at the optimal point. Seems ingenious, yet logical. I guess it works well enough that the reviewers gave it an 8/10 citing some very minor (IMHO) drawbacks. $250 is […]
