Jackie and Laurie on the Trinity

From the Jackie and Laurie show this week: Discussing church, God and the trinity: Laurie Kilmartin: “They lose me when they try to explain the holy trinity to me. It’s God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. It’s three different things but they are the same thing. What? That just doesn’t make sense to me. If […]

Kinivo Headphones RIP

My Kinivo BTH240 headphones have been a workhorse. I bought them when my wired headphones died my first week of work at my current job, and have used them pretty much all day every day since then. After 2.5 years, they have about had it. First the left ear started going out intermittently. Now, they […]

Me on the Kindle Chronicles

I am struggling to get the show out this week. I really owe everyone a show right now, but I am so tired I am going to bed in about 10 minutes. I’ll get the show out soon, but for now I wanted both point to and put in the feed the recent interview I […]

Fingers Crossed

The Macbook upgrade is over and seems to be a success. I used the basic template from this post (and followed its links to iFixit) and it took maybe 20 minutes from opening the case to closing it for good. By comparison, cloning the drive to the new SSD took about 4 hours. As the […]

Mobile Twitter Client Request

Does anyone know of a mobile Twitter client (preferably at least one each for iOS and Android) that allows you to point to arbitrary sites that implement the Twitter API? I know of some that let you use multiple services, but I want to use this with a demo of how easy it would be […]


Whadda You Want From Me?

Ever since playing this song on Mad at Dad the other day, I’ve had Billy Squier’s “Whadda You Want From Me” in my head. It’s been 48 hours with no sign of slowing down, so why not share it with everyone? I hadn’t heard this song in easily 15 years, maybe more like 25. I […]

Living in the Future

I still find it tremendously cool to SSH into my server box to iptables drop a malicious IP from my phone in a park. It is also cool to be able to blog about it at the same time. Also on:Facebook Twitter

Questions for Podcasters

Hey fellow podcasters, I am setting up two new podcast sites right now. I get to start over clean without all the cruft of my EGC site. If you had to do it all over again, what WordPress podcasting plugin would you use? I have tried a number of them over time and am not […]

Theoretically, I will be on this broadcast on Blab.IM live sometime between 3:30 and 4:00 PM EDT. We shall see. Rob Greenlee invited me and I’m hanging out but there is no way to test this out before you join. Hopefully there will be time to have me on and everything will work. Also on:Facebook […]

Server Fun

FYI, if you noticed and were wondering why my various sites have been down so much … there is a story. I noticed lots of reboots starting this afternoon, and this evening I found that the site would only stay up for 1 minute at a time. It would reboot so much that Linode would […]

New Iron Maiden Album

I have never bought an Iron Maiden album in my life, but I think Michael Butler is selling me one. Here is his track by track of the album, Part 1 and Part 2. I really love this and in fact where he gave Disk 1 a 5.5 out of 6, I would have given […]

One Million Spams

Sometime in the next 24 hours, I expect that my blog will cross an important threshold. That will be 1,000,000 spams blocked by Akismet. Thanks guys. If it took 1 second to deal with each one of those, I would have spent 11.5 days of my last decade handling them. I appreciate not having to […]


Antony Johnston and the Incomparable Network

I am a fan of Antony Johnston’s comic The Fuse and have read some of his work on series like Daredevil. I listened to the episode of Surviving Creativity on which he was a guest, which was how I found out about his podcast Unjustly Maligned on the Incomparable podcast network. I love the high […]
