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 [...]

Travel and FIOS

I’m in NYC for most of this week around an Apple mini-conference tomorrow. In the meantime, I seem to be stuck with FIOS while working:

Bummer

Well, hello there, 2007

So it’s 2007. Things are good. I’ve been keeping quite busy and today is my two-month milestone as a freelancer. On that front, I’ve been working with some great clients and February is starting to fall into place. I’m also continuing in a serious way with the Mac software, though it is hard to demonstrate [...]

Were you aware of it?

I’ve been using Apple’s Pages program quite a bit lately, namely for proposals and reports. In preparing a table of milestones with hour and cost estimates, I happened upon a great new feature: formulas in tables.
I guess this was a publicized feature of Pages 2, but it’s news to me. I was able to [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

An end(?) to the saga

Today we return to the house with a new hardwood floor in the bedroom, replacing the warped laminate one. Hopefully that chapter in our lives is over.
After a long holiday weekend in Connecticut, including meeting with and choosing our officiant for the wedding (a reverend whom we’re really excited about), and actual New [...]

eBay Scoops Skype

Cross-posted from my work blog.
I’ve read this morning that eBay has agreed to buy Skype, the fastest-growing provider of VoIP services, for anywhere from $2.6 to $4.1 billion dollars. Now Skype is cool, don’t get me wrong, but something doesn’t sound right about the angle the press is taking on the deal.
I’m [...]

Transitions

They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages.
Thats nothing, because if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.
Nice little gem.
Anyway, I’m very much looking forward to moving at the end of this month. Tonight we’re lining up the trailer, a storage unit, and a truck reservation. [...]
