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 […]

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. I hear fairly often that MySpace is the most visited site on the internet, well, it’s not, yet anyway. It has shown the craziest jump in the one-year span, showing […]

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 […]

All Seeing Screen

I read in a Slashdot article yesterday that Apple has patented the concept of a display that is capable of taking pictures as well as displaying them. The clever idea is to insert thousands of microscopic image sensors in-between the liquid crystal display cells in the screen. Each sensor captures its own small image, but […]


As of today, I am writing for a website I have enjoyed since its launch late last year: FreshArrival (“One Amazingly Cool Thing, Every Weekday.”) I am very excited to be a part of it. Don’t worry I’ll still be comin’ at you live from here. Here are some super cool things that have been […]

Screendoor on a Battleship

Associated Press: Apple Computer Inc. unveiled software Wednesday to help owners of its new Intel-based Macs run Microsoft Corp.’s rival Windows XP operating system, despite the computer maker’s insistence it won’t assist such efforts. I feel like I should be shocked, but at this point, if Apple says they absolutely aren’t going to do something, […]


I got a forwarded email from a friend today: Take 60 seconds and give this a shot! All you do is simply say the following small prayer for the person who sent you this….Then send it on to five other people, including the one who sent it to you. Within hours five people have prayed […]

Super Terrorist Sisters

A couple of girls from Portage county in Ohio are facing criminal charges for making super mario brothers question-mark cubes out of cardboard and printed wrapping paper and hanging them around town. These super-cute ornaments “scared the dickins” out of the community, who thought them to be bombs. Even police chief Randall McCoy said they […]

Tasting the Internet

Mmmmmmm, abstract concepts. If you could taste the internet, what would it taste like? Curry Hot, Hot, Hot Metallic (ironic.) SPAM Sweaty Nerd Balls Sour Cream & Onion Burning

New Design

I’ve upgraded my WordPress version and I’m playing around with some new designs and templates. Basically I can’t make up my frigging mind. I found something I really liked and then it didn’t work right. Then I switched to this format and I sort of like it, but not as much, and now comments aren’t […]

Tech Podcasts I like:

I’m buying into this “podcasting phenomenon”. It’s mostly crap, but I’ve cobbled together a healthy list of subscriptions that I find informative, entertaining, and enjoyable. Here are my favorites: This Week in Tech Buzz Out Loud eMacCast Security Now! Inside Mac Inside the Net Daily Giz Wiz 2 Minute Photoshop Tricks Daily GizWiz KFI Tech […]

Technical Difficulties

I drove up to Pardeeville High School this morning to be a guest speaker in some business class about web design and to give the kids some information about how you can go about actually publishing a web site you design on the internet. Here is a list of things that went wrong: After quickly […]

Digital Pet, Yo-Yo, MP3 Player, & Secret Lover

What do an outdated toy, an outdated fad, and an crappy MP3 player have in common? They are all the same thing, at least in this case. I wish I was at the meeting where this thing was thought up. I bet this is how it went down: Struggling Low-Level Japanese Businessman: “Sir, the kids […]

MacWorld SF

Laaaame. The new laptops are nice products, but “MacBook”? pff. That name just doesn’t sit right with me. I guess I’ll just have to get used to it. Would have been nice if they supported an HD resolution also. Here are the products that they SHOULD have released: a 42″ and 50″ Apple Plasma. 1080p […]

The Future

I drove a friend to the bus station today. He’s taking the bus down to Chicago and hopping a plane to Portland where he’ll be living for a while. It gets me to thinking how far the future is away. In this huge trip, there isn’t even the use of one single flying car. I […]
