The Ancients Knew

Space.com is showing us satellite pictures (from space, no less!) of ancient sites significant to extraterrestial matters. It’s fascinating to read about civilizations long before ours that understood the sun’s movement around us. That is, I’m pretty sure that the people of yore did not grasp the concept of a…Continue Reading

Free Heroin

Vancouver is one the three sites in Canada to try a government-supported drug program. This program, unlike others, is aimed to push drugs rather than to eliminate them. Their plan is to offer medically administered drugs to people that will show up three times a week for the dose. In…Continue Reading

Do you…Flickr?

The folks at Flickr have been rumored to be in discussions with Yahoo on a potential purchase. All rumors aside, the news became a reality Sunday when they announced that they had, in fact, reached an agreement with Yahoo for the purchase of Flickr (and Ludicorp). I hate seeing this…Continue Reading

Times are a Changing

For those of you in the Northern Hemisphere, welcome spring! If you don’t see any differences around here, hold down your “SHIFT” key and click the refresh button. That will refresh this pages style sheet and show you spring’s colors. Incidentally, it’s 38°F outside – it doesn’t feel much like…Continue Reading

FireFox: 1, IE 7: -1

Internet Explorer 7 will be releasing sometime this summer (as currently planned) to retrofit a browser losing popularity in the latest war. FireFox has gained an unimaginable 10%+ of the market in a very short period of time. I, myself, have been swayed to gear my development efforts towards FireFox’s…Continue Reading

Spring is Nigh!

From what I’m reading, spring starts earlier now. I missed this fact growing up – perhaps no one cared enough to tell me. But Space.com tells us (scientifically) that spring starts no later than March 20th in the Northern Hemisphere. In fact, it actually starts on March 19th for all…Continue Reading

St. Patrick’s Day at Meehan’s

Amy, I, and Balthazar all went to Meehan’s this evening to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. It was an excellent venue for the event, though it was pretty much standing room only. If it seems a bit odd to bring a two-year-old to an ale house, it is. However, Meehan’s catered…Continue Reading

Ice Cube Escapee

I have an ice tray that consistently ejects ice from at least one cube with every freeze. I’m perplexed by this phenomenon! It must happen just as the surface of the ice freezes. I’ve opened the freezer early in the process to see partially frozen cubes. The offender can be…Continue Reading

Omnifi is Here!

I got my Omnifi bundle today from woot.com. I was so eager to get into it that I immediately opened the box and grabbed the documentation to begin reading. I knew I wouldn’t have a chance to play with the parts until much later, so I figured this would satisfy…Continue Reading

Atlanta Killings Make BIG News

Brian Nichols escaped from a courthouse today in Fulton County, having shot and killed the judge, court reporter, and possibly a sheriff’s deputy. I’m guessing by his shocking departure that he’s guilty. He also took the time to pistol-whip an AJC reporter while hijacking a vehicle. I’m shocked that this…Continue Reading
