    Time to drag some readers kicking and screaming…

    I’m hosting a bit of a contest over at the Indies Blog in association with Mike Judge and Don Hertzfeldt’s Animation Show. The prizes aren’t completely nailed down, but we’re looking at a pair of tickets for the Feb 26th show in Vancouver where both Don and Mike will be in attendance, a handful of […]

    Someone is shooting for Steve Ballmer’s job

    by  • 1/31/2005 • geek • 0 Comments

    I’ve heard Steve Ballmer say some pretty dumb things, but I think that Nick McGrath might be trying to outshine everyone’s favorite howler monkey (oh come on, you saw the Developers Developers remix) in an attempt to take over role that MS PR has to fight the hardest to downplay… I’m not refering to the […]

    Some music you should listen to

    by  • 1/31/2005 • life, music • 0 Comments

    I did a bunch of little tiny changes to Nardwuar’s site tonight, mostly long overdue things, adding in a handful of radio shows, and interviews. One of the items that I was looking forward to listening to is the interview with The Melvins and Jello Biafra which took place shortly before the New Year’s gig […]

    Blogging Incredibility

    by  • 1/29/2005 • humor, meta---ging • 0 Comments

    I started to write a post about Marqui and how it differs from another, smaller scope CMS that I’ve been looking into, but I was distracted by a video blog that I had never seen before; oh! shiny! This is the beauty of the internet, and of blogs; it’s all out there forevere; all the […]

    How many X does it take…

    by  • 1/27/2005 • humor, meta---ging • 1 Comment

    Found over on sebatical‘s LiveJournal; Q: How many Bush Administration officials does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb. Its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are a delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has […]

    No Phishing Allowed

    by  • 1/26/2005 • life, spam • 0 Comments

    I haven’t noticed this little banner that GMail has been adding to obvious phishing emails, most likely because I don’t bother opening them other than out of curiosity; if the phishers have improved their spelling skills or if they’ve at least tried harder to convince me. I mean, they really haven’t been trying very hard […]

    One of the reasons I don’t ship Purolator

    by  • 1/26/2005 • geek • 12 Comments

    The only reason I’m shipping via Purolator at all is on account of it being someone else that’s paying; a laptop being serviced under Toshiba’s warranty program is returning from the depot in Ontario. I’ve had no luck with Purolator, having them damage pretty much every shipment that they bring me, or damaging them en […]

    That movie blog I was talking about…

    by  • 1/25/2005 • life, movies • 0 Comments

    I’ve started to post new content to that movie weblog I mentioned earlier. This is tied in loosely with a number of other sites and will eventually form a real network of sites, sharing revenues, etc; that’s the theory at least; I’m doing it because I need another excuse to watch movies… I need a […]

    Mac mini price cuts

    by  • 1/25/2005 • geek • 0 Comments

    Apple has dropped some of the upgrade prices, which will help to reduce the cost of buying the MiniMac that’s decked out; one that’s more of a real computer than the stock model. When Apple introduced the Mac Mini earlier this month, it was the lowest-price Mac ever. However, customers at Apple’s online store noted […]
