The Right Tool For The Job

I’m preparing for my camping trip over the next week and in doing this, I have stumbled upon an interesting conflict. I’ve always been a proponent of the theory that you should always use the right tool for the job. If you need to cut a straight line on a peice of paper, you had […]

The Big Move

Some of my hosting packages are coming up on their renewal dates. I decided a few weeks ago that I would buy a VPS (Virtual Private Server) from my hosting company and move my sites on to that. I consider myself a little above the curve as far as technology goes, but I’m far from […]

Things To Do

My Dream To-Do List: My Actual To-Do List:

Knowing From Search

I started to write a post today about search. I wanted to emphasize that it is not only important how you search but where. I ended up going on and on and the results were way too scattered and rambling. I’m going to try to explain this simple concept more clearly here. What you are […]

The Web’s Big Dogs

The Washington Post has posted a table showing the biggest 50 websites, as judged by total unique visitors, compared from February 2005 to February 2006.

Grocery lists really epitomize the beauty of the list. Amazing Grocery Lists: Milk, Ketchup, Supper Cheese Tomato, 7-Up, Lemonade, Munchies, Coke, 7-Up Go To Kentucky, Underwer, […]

Monkey See, Monkey Drink

Namely, boozing after work, looking at porn, and stealing. When given the choice between a photo of a low-status male with […]

Cities Egosurfing

Google Trends launched this week, giving average folks the chance to explore what people have been Googleing for the past few years. Along the timeline, there are markers with significant news events that may (or may not) explain spikes in traffic. Cities that don’t search for themselves: Most “Portland” Searches: Beaverton Most “Green Bay” Searches: […]

Scratched DVD

Reasons that DVD is scratched: Were trying to wipe off the grease Lent it to Edward Scissorhands Push Pin and DVD closer than pen and paper Did a tour of your car’s passenger side floor The last person who Netflix’d it was a sadistic bastard Used it as emergency ice-scraper It scratched your back, so […]
