I’m Back From Charleston

Monday, September 12th, 2005

...if you don't hear from me until Monday, blame the Double Tree. The DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Charleston is a nice place, but that hotel is very stingy on the amenities. Wireless Internet Access: $15 dollars a day. Hell, even LOCAL phone calls were $0.75 per call! Of course upon looking at ...

A few days off

Wednesday, September 7th, 2005

Prepare yourselves. Your guide to all things that are worth a crap in this crazy mixed-up world is going on a short vacation. Thats me (Mike), by the way, for those of you that really aren't that bright. I'll be doing two things for the rest of this week: ...

The ‘Pirillo Effect’ has been taken from me.

Tuesday, September 6th, 2005

At the time the Seattle Times article, quoting the term I coined "the Pirillo Effect", ran, I was only jokingly annoyed. However, after some research, I'm not joking anymore. The good news is that you can find the term Pirillo Effect everywhere on the web now. The bad news? ...

I Guess Its “Blog Day”

Wednesday, August 31st, 2005

Happy "Blog Day" everyone! What is "Blog Day"? Well I'm stoked (thats right, I'm trying to bring back "stoked") that you asked because I have no idea either. Maybe a well-placed quote that will fill out this post and require very little effort on my part will ...

My Love Affair With SynergyKM

Tuesday, August 9th, 2005

When working or posting at home, there has always been a piece missing from my ideal setup. I have one Windows desktop that lives in my bedroom all the time and then when home, I have my iBook sitting on the desk next to it. I like my ...

The New Cell Phone: Motorola v330

Sunday, July 17th, 2005

I have finally moved on from my T610 cell phone. I really liked that T610, from Sony-Ericsson, but there were a few issues. First off, I like a flip phone better. It protects the screen, has a better feel, and frankly, looks cooler. Secondly, after about ...

One year older…sadly no more mature.

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2005

You see that guy studying that cheese stick there? You look at him and you think, "No way is that guy any older than 15." Well as of today, that guess is even further off. I'll just get this over with...today is my birthday (I'm 24). So what ...

To PSP or not to PSP, that is the question.

Monday, April 25th, 2005

I've been thinking about getting a PSP. But I'm not yet entirely sure. I think most of us know why the PSP, Sony's new portable gaming device that plays video, music and games, is a pretty cool little doo-hicky, so I bother going into that. However here ...

A message from the lazy side of the no-call list

Friday, April 22nd, 2005

In the past few days it seems that my Kirksville, MO phone number [(660) 627-####] has made it to every prerecorded-message telemarketer in the nation. Six calls this week so far that I've answered once I got home in the evening; more in the week before. I'll make sure ...

Apartment Complex’s Lame Propaganda

Sunday, March 6th, 2005

I don't know about all apartment complexes out there, but mine really likes to make everyone think that we are all a big happy family. Of course if that was the case, I should really think about trying to at least say hi to one of my "siblings" and ...
