The Great Big Lie

Now I’m not one to spread conspiracy theories, but I just can’t get over the feeling that the people of the USA are being lied too.  And its not just by the administration this time, its by a wide body of industrialists, economists, politicians and even scientists working in concert to keep the truth from us. …

Tempted by Halo

I’m tempted to blow off work for the rest of the week and spend the time playing Halo 2.  It’s that compelling.  I don’t know why I want to do it.  Is it just because everyone else is doing it?  I don’t even own an XBox.  Now that’s a startling revelation.  You’d think I’d have one…

Quality Fake Rolex Now

I’m sure you must have have at least 35 to 40 fake Rolex watches, each, by now.  No?  I’m drowning in them.  I just match up each real-mail offer for a new credit card with each e-mail offer for a fake watch.  I’m planning to give them out as holiday gifts this year.  I used…

Refashioning Software

In our never ending quest to provide you with better, faster, more powerful products and tools, we some time find it necessary to redo a little of what was done before, to revamp it so-to-speak, to spruce it up, to splash on a new coat of paint and add new life to the old tried-and-true…

Halo, can you hear me now?

I played my first game of Halo last night.  Not Halo 2 mind you, the developers only just finished that up recently and while I might technically be an ‘insider’ I haven’t had access to any pre release versions of that one.  I’m talking about the bona-fide original product.  I opened up the box sometime…

Techmongers Unite!

With the political ‘hard-bloggers’ getting all the press these days (or should I say ‘making’ the press), it high time we high-techers got our fair shake.  I mean, really, who wants to hear anymore about this nonsense. It has become mind-numbingly repetetive.  Still, all the action on the web seems to be in the political arena. …

Stern Resolve

There’s been a lot of hubbub lately over which style of sales and marketing will prevail in the ever expanding hyperbole of internet music retail. With sites like Apple’s and MSN’s new music service offering individual downloads for mere pennies, it makes you wonder how a subscription service will compete.  I mean, would you rather own the…

Double Dog Data

In my post Dog Days of Summer I told you how a stray dog had adopted my family while on vacation.  I just wanted you all to know that we still have the dog, and yes we did all the prudent and responsible things that a dog owner should.  It turns out she is about nine…

Code Shock

The first time I ever saw code written in Java, it scared me.  The code looked awful.  I mean it.  There was no way this stuff could be for real.  The source code I saw looked as bug prone as anything I could imagine.  There were ‘new’s flying around everywhere, no clean up code, no error…

Style is Serious

It’s been difficult to focus on work lately, let alone find the time to contemplate something worthy of a blog post.  The distraction of the presidential race is too compelling.  My wife and I are glued to the television, CNN, FOX, MSNBC.  I’m starting to have lucid dreams about dastardly swifti-boat word documents.  Just make…
