Month: September 2007

  • Spam via the USPS

    I get so much mail from Clearwire, and I don’t really know why.  It would seem to me that if I don’t respond to their mail and advertisements the first forty times they send it, they should stop pestering me. Honestly, I get around 3-5 pieces of mail via the USPS from them per week. …

  • Mentos and Diet Coke

    It’s a slow day here at the office, so some co-workers and I decided that we should replicate the whole Mentos/Diet Coke thing.  I know, it’s so 6-months ago, but oh well.

  • Talk like a pirate day!


  • Geeking Out at Home

    Diann and I spent last night doing something we didn’t think we’d be doing yet: looking at houses online. To this date, I’ve avoided the insane Seattle real-estate market, but we figure it’s time to bite the bullet and jump in.  It just doesn’t show any indication of slowing down in the next 3 years…

  • Popfly Team Site: Facebook fun in Popfly

      The Popfly team has posted some videos on how to use the Facebook block here: Facebook fun in Popfly.  It’s a good first step, but I really wish they’d allow reading and setting Facebook status messages. That would make for an excellent Vista Sidebar gadget.

  • The Stage Before Blogger’s Remorse

    Ever wanted to blog about something, but realize before you post it that it probably wouldn’t be a great idea from a personal and/or professional standpoint? One of those days…  I guess it’s better to realize this before posting it, though.

  • Stock Market Today

    Today, the stock market was boosted, apparently spurred on by the fact that Countrywide Financial received $12 billion in new financing. Now we’re financing the financiers.  I sure hope that they didn’t get a sub-prime loan.

  • FiOS Installed

    At about 7:15am, a Verizon guy showed up at my door to complete my FiOS installation.  A lot of people have asked me about it, so I figured I’d post a bit about it as well as a few pictures of what they actually install. About a month ago, on a Tuesday, I placed an…

  • Vegetarians, avert your eyes!

    Fired up the Big Green Egg again this weekend to cook fajitas for a close group of friends.  By cook fajitas, I mean cook lots of fajitas.  We picked up a whopping ten pounds of flank steak from Amazon Fresh and cooked it all.  If that wasn’t enough, we also cooked up some chicken fajitas;…

  • Blockbuster Total Access Changes

    I use (and love) Netflix, but I’ve been following this whole hoopla about the changes that Blockbuster is doing with their Netflix competitor, Total Access.  I’ve also been trying to persuade my office-mate to ditch Blockbuster in favor of Netflix. I think I may have found the solution… put up an article that outlines…
