What's your intention?
My 7-10 list on Radio Paradise. With an allowance for in-the-moment decision-making… pretty accurate. 10 – Emerson, Lake and Palmer – Lucky Man 10 – Pink Floyd – Us & Them -> Eclipse 10 – Pink Floyd – The Great Gig In The Sky 10 – Led Zeppelin – Ramble On 10 – Joe Jackson [...]
Pick a peck of pickled peppers Pack them in a purple pot. Pour a pint of Pinot on them Pious? We are not. Pipe the pirate from his perch Then pin him right in place. Pinch him till he pees his pants, And the pitchman pleads his case. Planetisimal secrets ply The parlor, cold and [...]
barkingcats.com is now running off HostGator servers, moved from Laughing Squid. The monthly cost dropped by half, with more functionality (subdomains and ssh shell access). It might even be faster, though it’s hard to tell.
I’m going to start looking like one of Loui Tucker’s danceaholics if I keep this up. Local dancing and links: Monday 7:30p at the Sunnyvale Community Center Recreation Center building, with Loui Tucker. Loui does a focused beginner hour 7:30-8:30 that’s a great way to get started. Every-other-Wednesday 8:00p couples dance, at Flex-it, also with [...]
One of my issues with blogging is the lack of feedback, as noted previously. As an alternative, I’m finding that Twitter and Flickr combined with FaceBook is kinda cool. It’s straightforward to tweet about whatever, especially since I can post from my iPhone, which then shows up as my FaceBook status. Similarly, I can post [...]
Back from Sierra to the Sea Saturday afternoon, and just logged my ride data into the laptop. The ride is an organized tour for about 130 paying riders from Bear Valley in the Sierra to San Francisco, 420 miles over 7 days, for an average of about 60 miles / day. My main response to [...]
I’m getting querulous about this whole intertubes social-expression thing. Been contributing to various on-line forums for the last few years, with near-zero response, recognition, connection, awareness. Radio Paradise (a GREAT streaming music station) has a forum for comments for each song. Cool, right? Well, yeah, kinda. It’s nice to express thoughts, feelings, and memories about [...]
(I ran across a speech I gave in July 2003, at the disbanding of a product team I worked on for several years, and like it enough I’m reposting it.) All is flux, nothing stays still. Nothing endures but change. Heraclitus, from Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers They always say time changes things, but [...]
A fairly usual year of activity for me- less traveling, more stuff locally. My last holiday letter came out in early March, so this covers from there forward. Family trust: finished liquidating the rest of my mom’s properties and closed out the trust business. Yay! Have a closing tax return and K-1s to distribute, but [...]
A full clean upgrade to WP 2.7. I think most of the visible changes are in the admin interfaces, and probably security. No new widgets or plug-ins, same Landzilla theme, so there’s probably little visible difference.
