  • Vanishing Point pictures

    Pictures from the Vanishing Point event have been posted in the gallery [here]( Go solve puzzles! Lots of pictures from the fireworks, but video would have been far better. Luckily, [Brandon LeBlanc]( posted video on his [ blog]( Good luck!

  • Vanishing Point Game: Event 4 – Seattle, WA

    So the 4th event of the [Vanishing Point Game]( was held in Seattle tonight. If you haven’t been following, the game is a viral marketing/buzz building event sponsored by [Microsoft]( and [AMD]( for the Windows Vista launch (this Tuesday). [Jenn]( (who happens to work on a part of the Windows Vista marketing team) called me […]

  • European project named MARIUS?

    Hmm, Gizmodo reports that the European Commission is launching a program to deliver test messages to cell phones by helicopter. It’s named [Project MARIUS](, which apparently stands for “Mobile Autonomous Reactive Information System for Urgency Situations”. Try saying that all in one breath.

  • Reunions

    So, as I mentioned yesterday, my 10-year high school reunion is coming up. What I didn’t mention is that I’ve been roped into the planning efforts. Scary. Someone else on the “planning committee” (aka people we found first) posted a pretty interesting blog entry on her [hesitation in coming to the reunion]( (Good gracious, I […]

  • High School Reunions – 10 years!

    In scary news, my 10-year high school reunion is coming up. Since 1997, I’ve hosted the [Conroe High School Class of 1997 e-mail list](, and I’ve been receiving more and more updates as of late. The page has pretty much been static since 1997, with the exception of a few changes and additions of user […]

  • Cingular SIM Unlock: We’re almost there

    So, the last few days I’ve been posting about my lack of success in getting my phone SIM unlocked so I can use it while traveling internationally. Well, as of yesterday, I’ve made a fair amount of progress. Let me back up for a moment. When I started all of this, I had an Audiovox […]

  • Viva Pinata

    So, I bought Viva Pinata today at Best Buy. All I can say is: Woohoo!

  • Snow Days

    So, the past two days have brought us more snow and ice in the Seattle area. I present to you my nominations of “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly”: The Good: Can’t get out of the neighborhood, so we work from home. The Bad: Can’t get out of the neighborhood, so we get cabin […]

  • A new record: 2 hour commute

    So that was less than stellar. Another snow-storm hit the Seattle area this afternoon, and the drive home took just shy of 2 hours. Quite amazing, considering I live around 8 miles away from my office. I wish I had taken some photos with my cameraphone — but I was too busy not getting rammed […]

  • Cingular SIM Unlock: the story continues

    So, I got a text message about 9:45am this morning from Cingular, asking me to call them as my unlock code I had [previously requested]( was ready. Woohoo! So I call them. > M: Hi, I got a text message asking me to call you to get my device unlock code. > C: [puts me […]
