Apparently I have to get off the Internet…

Apparently I have to get off the Internet until I can see Star Trek Into Darkness. Sigh.


This world still needs you. I hope we can make it without you.


It sure is quiet in here. I should fix that.

Our Interview with Felicia Day

The crops of our quiet labor are starting to bear fruit. Jeffrey Rosado, host/creator of “The Culture of Pop” and “DVD Marquee” landed a nice little interview with Felicia Day at DragonCon.

He’s posted the lovely tidbit here:

Spread the word about the interview.  There’s more to come!

Special thanks to Felicia Day for the time.  We know she was INCREDIBLY busy and it was far cool of her to take time out for us.

When Address Book and MobileMe Fail to Sync a Record

Image via Wikipedia

If you find that there’s an address book card out there that isn’t syncing with MobileMe, your iPhone, or another Mac… check to see if there is an ampersand in the failing record anywhere.  Apparently once a card hits MobileMe, it doesn’t like the ampersand in the vcard and chokes on it.  If MobileMe chokes on it, all of your devices will be unable to find the new card.

Just another tip from yours truly.

I’m in New Orleans this week, working project stuff for the day job.  Lots of fun here.  More later.

Dish Network finally installed

The installers kept the appointment this time around – as of today we have Dish Network added to our plasma box of glory.  So far it’s good.  We ate breakfast while watching bizarre shows from the other side of the planet.

It’s amazing how quickly the wife tired of it 😉  That was a quick Americanization.

Leopard ships in 10 days!

Time to spend some serious cash 😉 Oh, wait… I don’t have any…

Pencils for Peace

So I woke up this morning and was pounced upon by Guinevere (hey, I still like using your old handle, okie?) to let me know that she and her sister have started a non-profit organization named Pencils for Peace. Pencils for Peace is an organization dedicated to providing schoolbooks, supplies and anything else to the children of Afghanistan.

Folks, this is a wonderful cause. One of the battle fronts in the War on Terror is helping to stop terrorism at the source. Terrorism thrives and breeds from this poverty and lack of education. This is a wonderful cause and I certainly hope that you will give some time to come up with any items or monetary donations to help them out.

MSFT asking you to write leters opposing California A.B.1668-Open Document

From Digg: Microsoft is going through it’s email and phone lists asking people to support their opposition to California A.B. 1668 – “Open Document Format, Open Source”. by writing to the California Assemblymen involved in this bill (contact info in the link). Let’s see if Digg can raise as much support for the CA ODF bill as they can raise opposition.

Me: I often wonder how much of HSPD-12 is due to Microsoft’s lobbying efforts in Washington. I find it quite interesting that all government agencies are moving to a single forest setup with Active Directory driving the train. The funny part is – they require smartcard integration, which is not much more than a hack for some Microsoft technologies.
