    Accidentally Backwards

    by  • 4/14/2008 • geek • 0 Comments

    I had to pick up another pair of earbuds for the ipod today; the ones I’ve been using have suffered from an internal decapitation that causes the right speaker to cut out every so often. It’s not constant, but the wire leading out of the right side is bent over at the end of the […]

    Make Plans for 2013

    Watching one of the worst hosts on a History Channel show going on about how the Great Mayan Empire predicted the end of the WORLD! Cities of The Underworld has some decent photography, and I really have enjoyed a couple episodes, but the host and the writers really don’t seem to do their homework. I […]

    Is this helping or hurting my chances?

    So, I’m in the middle of a technical interview with someone in another department at the company that I work for, trying to talk my way into an open position for a developer / database role on another team. Then comes a question that the interviewer seems to think that I’ve blown with regard to […]

    Likes long walks on the beach

    I have come to the conclusion that I have a laptop that enjoys being taken for walks. It wouldn’t boot up all last week, and then I took it with me to work this morning, only to have it boot up immediately in the office. The laptop’s still under warranty, but I’m going to have […]

    I foresee another discussion with the boss

    All thanks to a new scientific study that turned up over on scienceblogs… Researchers at the University of Utah tested how quickly people performed tasks like editing a document and copying numbers between spreadsheets while using different computer configurations: one with an 18-inch monitor, one with a 24-inch monitor and with two 20-inch monitors. Their […]

    Unlimited Mobile Data in Canada

    I called Telus, as my phone was hooped. Turns out that they’ve been calling my land line to try to reach me and tell me that my mobile was going to be turned off. Land line?  I don’t have a landline. “Your home number, in Vancouver” She read off my previous mobile number from Vancouver. […]

    What to do…

    by  • 1/10/2008 • geek • 0 Comments

    What do you do when you’re just not finding satisfaction in your work? When you move from one position with little power and respect to another position with little power and respect and find nothing changing for the better? They all seem to be about the same, with different faces and different benefits packages. Some […]

    Overheard at Wal*Mart

    by  • 1/9/2008 • geek • 0 Comments

    I was in Wal*Mart last weekend, spending money off a gift card we received for ChriFSMmas. There were some 100 stacks of DVD blanks on for $18, and I was in need of backing up some data, so it was a decent option. Wal*Mart is not a place I’d normally go when we were in […]
