The “Talking Heads” are on

The analysis has already begun. The talking heads are already speaking about how important gestures and make-up are going to be, referring back to Nixon’s pasty-faced debacle with Kennedy. I hope that anyone who is going to vote isn’t that, well, retarded. I also hope for substance over style tonight. With all that’s going on, [...]

Breaking news… Some kid in Aurora, named after a Star Trek character, got suspended for refusing to take off a crappily handmade t-shirt that says “Obama, a terrorist’s best friend.” It’s not going to work this election (that’s for you, Star Trek character’s dad). I say let him wear the shirt, really, who cares? Every [...]

I went out my back door today and noticed a wasp nest forming on the screen door. I’d seen the wasps before, but had no idea where their lair was. My first instinct was to take a broom and knock them down… Bad idea. I beat a quick retreat. What exactly is the correct procedure [...]

I downloaded the beta earlier and popped it on the mini to see how well it worked. Well, it worked so well that I ran out and picked up a Macbook Pro. I hated cluttering up the G4 with endless development configurations, and now I really don’t have to worry about it. I spent a [...]
