That’s some creativity right there.

I’ve been predicting this for years

Starting about 3 years ago, I started saying that we were very close (5 years or less) to having cell phones so powerful that they will be able to replace laptops and desktops.

The scenario would be that you’d sit down at your desk and plop your phone on a cradle. That cradle would be [...]

Meanwhile in Texas

According to Sec. 46.035 of the Texas Penal Code, it’s illegal for someone with a concealed carry license to carry in a church.

A North Texas congregation is reeling after an attacker rammed a car into a church wall, chased the pastor, and beat him to death with an electric guitar.

Well, at least it [...]

And now for something a little lighter…

Was at a fairly major department store yesterday buying a few items, and had this conversation:

cashier #1: Do you have a [store] card you’d like to use?

me: nope

cashier #1: would you like one?  It will save you %15!

me: If it’s a credit card, I’m not interested.*

cashier #1: Ok, think about.  [...]

hmmm… let’s see…

According to the Washington Post, “Obama campaigned four years ago on a promise to revamp the federal government’s disaster response functions…” and has already signed off on 9 declarations of emergency in the north east before the Hurricane Sally has even hit the shore…

You know what I’m reminded of?  When Nashville had a 1000 [...]

Gone and done it

Last week I ordered the same scope that Linoge used to make rifleman. Should be here tomorrow.

It’ll be Spring before I can even think about doing another Appleseed, and hopefully the rumors about having one less than a mile from my house are true–that’ll make it a lot easier for me.

I’d still rather [...]

That DVD on your shelf? Yeah… you don’t own that.

To me, and many other folks, owning something means that I can do what I want with it.  If I go to the store and buy a DVD, I should be able to take it home, and watch it on any of my devices that have a DVD drive in them right?

Nope.  At least [...]

Deal Alert: Hosting

HostGator is 40% off today for all plans.

I moved from self-hosted on an error-prone hamster-powered nettop to Hostgator back in January. Couldn’t be happier. I’ve got the “Baby Croc” package and host about a million domains. Kidding, of course, but that’s what it feels like sometimes.

Please note that if you sign up using [...]

Huh… advertising must work!

Went to the range yesterday to try out the 795 after the upgrade and check the zero on the new scope.  I decided to take the Marlin Papoose with me to check on its zero as well.  I’ll write about the 795 in a different post.

I’ve noticed I’ve gotten a lot of questions about [...]

My tenuous connection to Steve Jobs

As I’ve mentioned before, I listen to audio books while running or walking the dog. I’m currently listening to Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. I’m no fan of Apple or Jobs (Wozniak is another thing entirely), but I feel it’s important to understand one of the most influential minds marketers of the last 200 years.
