Wednesday, December 28th, 2005

Where are the posts?! First off, get off my back! Secondly, I spent my day touching up the new design that I guess everyone likes because no one has said anything and playing (read: banging head against wall) with Wordpress and Textpattern. Yeah, I've been thinking about switching away ...

Yes, we all know Apple introduced a new video playing iPod and a new iMac. I'm sure that annoucement is getting beaten to death on 90% of all websites out over yesterday and today, so I'm not going to discuss any ramifications of the latest annoucement from "his Stevenes". I ...

The Problem With Donating To Big Causes

Thursday, October 6th, 2005

How long has it been The Hurricanes? Is it in that range yet where I can bitch about something about it and not get blasted worse than if someone talks shit on Lance Armstrong? I realize at best its at the beginning of that range...well I'm sure its ...

I have a Sony Digital Camcorder. It has no microphone port. I want to use a handheld mic at times and other times have myself wirelessly mic-ed. Anyone have an idea on how to do this? Here's my idea: Get a digital voice recorder. Get a ...

I Didn’t Get A Nano

Friday, September 16th, 2005

Yes, I just recently got a new iPod. The battery was beginning to show its age on "Perry White," my old 3rd Generation, 10 gig, no click-wheel iPod. It was time for a new iPod; but unlike every other person replacing or getting new iPods this week, I ...
