I can’t stop watching Junior Senior’s Move Your Feet. This could become a problem…

It Wants My Money

Frustration_1.jpgI hate wires. To me, wires are antithetical to the entire laptop idea. If I’m reading while listening to music (95%+ of my computer time) I can’t easily move the laptop without sacrificing the sound. So why do I even use a laptop if it’s stuck where it is?

There was a time when I had six wires intrusively radiating from my laptop, and that’s not including the two I eliminated with wireless internet and a wireless mouse. I’ve pruned the mess down to four thanks to a USB hub. By eliminating my printer and external hard drive I can make it by with just two and still do almost everything i want. If it’s for less than two or three hours than the power strip can be eliminated and we are down to just one: the speakers.

But it would be presumptuous to blame the speakers. It’s not their fault they ruin my day so consistently. It’s the wire’s fault! The wire is to blame! And that’s when inspiration hit and I googled like mad until I found these: bluetooth speakers. Did you know that such wonders existed in today’s world?

It seems that whenever I make up a product that seems feasible the internet instantly manifests it. This can’t be fair.

So now I can’t decide. Do I throw out a c-note for what is undoubtedly a questionable product based on a primarily aesthetic motivation?

openid.png Note to self: learn how OpenId works before breakfast tomorrow morning. It seems straightforward enough, but the technical and theory end gets weird pretty darn quick.

Well, if you don’t figure it out tomorrow buddy, then I guess no breakfast for you.

All cooking instructions should be posted like this. Every frame is interesting. The final product leaves me speechless. Chris’ sideburns are fantastic. If this doesn’t make you happy then you should see a doctor.

Weblogs Are Fun!

Tuesday, January 29, 2008 is born again. Yay.

I would have posted this sooner but I had to go eat. If you’re interested dinner was Salisbury steak with mashed potatoes, succotash, and a salad. There was no dessert offered.

But the website, out with it… I began to seriously consider starting a weblog about three weeks ago and began working on it about a week ago. This is the fourth edition of the weblog known as, my 7th weblog so far, and the second powered by WordPress.

My first weblog was Preschool Prodigy. I started it in early 2002 in an effort to teach myself some web programming and design. The PHP code was a catastrophe which I still cannot believe ran as smoothly as it appeared to, but I at least learned CSS and semantic HTML well enough. My idols back then were Douglas Bowman, Jeffrey Zeldman, Simon Willison, and Mark Pilgrim. They still are to some extent, and its refreshing to see they are doing just as well today. But just as they have in recent years, I can no longer focus so much time on weblogging.

I actually did not start with the intention of reinventing this site within the modern day WordPress Industrial Complex. The entire website was going to be designed around how I thought it should function and I had a new exciting library to achieve my vision with. But after two weeks of banging my head against the desk and cursing at half-realized abstractions I decided that it didn’t really matter anymore. Hacker pride be damned.

When I started weblogging, WordPress didn’t exist, Blogger sucked, Movable Type charged a buttload, and LiveJournal was ugly. And while LiveJournal is still ugly, Blogger is now a Google property, MT is GPL’d, and WP rocks. Weblogging has matured so I guess there are other things for me to focus on now besides whose software cuddles with my data at night.

Anyway I plan to treat this weblog a bit different than my past attempts. Stay tuned.
