Shift

For the curious, I’m not blogging much over here anymore. I am however, syndicating a lot of my active content (links, photos, etc.) over here on Tumblr. I like it so far. It also pulls in Code Sorcery Workshop which, by the way, is keeping me quite happy and busy.
And, if you thought I [...]

Transition

The classic blog death rattle — a redesign
Actually, I’m not looking to perk up this blog any, but probably to change its purpose in the near future. Also, I just nabbed an unmodified theme and will likely change it again shortly. Coincidence that when I finally moved on this, my Akismet spam count was [...]

The jungle that is my hard drive

Ok, I admit it. Sometimes it gets to me. Coming from a Linux and FreeBSD background, I’m used to a lean-and-mean system with very few extraneous files. So when I switched to Mac about five years ago, it took a little while to adjust to a multi-gigabyte install by default, not to mention all of [...]

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.

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 [...]

Minor update

So, in a nutshell:
* 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 [...]

R-134a, pronounced “success”

So I just had a minor milestone when it comes to car upkeep. Like a lot of people, I don’t know much about what actually goes on under the hood of a car — it’s kind of a “closed box” system to me. I’m fairly self-conscious about it, since I deal with pretty complicated computer [...]

Blew by South By

I’m kind of left in awe of South By Southwest. I think the thing that best sums it up is what Wilson said: that everyone was excited about something. The buzz was palpable, and it was widely distributed.
I roamed the convention center, I attended a panel during every slot, sometimes jumping around to keep [...]

The new iPhoto

Quick thoughts on the new iPhoto in iLife ‘06. Nothing of Ars Technica calibre, but I felt it was cool enough to warrant a write-up. Michelle and I popped in the Apple Store yesterday while doing registry shopping and — what do you know — I forgot that I had wanted to buy [...]

Justin’s Pulse O’ The MacWorld™

Well, it comes time again for me to make a prediction as to Apple’s new product releases at MacWorld in thirty minutes. I have no real sources or anything, other than all of the rumor sites, but I’d like to take a stab anyway, combining the rumors with my judgement as to what’s feasible [...]
