You know you’re a Web 2.0 geek when…

… you totally nailed the first Buchanan submission to a Flickr pool about U.S. Presidents.

Akismet is teh r0×0r

I’ve seen a steep increase in comment spam in the past couple weeks — from basically none to ten or more a day. Across three blogs, this gets pretty annoying, even if they don’t make it through the filter — I still have to delete them and I get emailed about them as they’re submitted. [...]

Fun with hardware

I actually don’t have any new hardware… yet. But I’ve been eying a couple things to play with. Um, I mean work with.
Truth is, I’ve been pretty busy freelancing for the past couple weeks. That’s right, I made the leap and so far I’m really enjoying it. I have a profile site which I’m [...]

My take on Lost

Catherine writes about her frustration with Lost and links to How ‘Lost’ is Ruining My Life. I feel their pain. That’s why when something occurred to me last time I was watching, it almost snapped into being as the only logical explanation.

* We’re married. Best day of my life. Photos soon.
* Greece & Turkey rocked. I flew back a week before this. Major buzzkill to go from Mediterranean cuisine to eating at a Subway in New Jersey on the drive home — wish I could have come down a little easier.
* Still [...]

It’s never easy

So I took my car back to the collision place for a few niggling issues — the trunk latch was flaky, the steering wheel was rotated slightly, and the brake light was out. I just called to get an ETA (after a whole day) and it turns out when they checked it out, they found [...]

Listen up, old timer

So I’m confirming our hotel reservations in Istanbul and the email we got offers two options for getting picked up from Ataturk Airport. First off, the email’s automatically awesome because THE WHOLE THING IS IN CAPITAL LETTERS. Thank you, HAKAN & OKAN BROTHERS, for getting me up to speed so loudly.
Do we want:
a) [...]
