“I just got back from vacation, I need a little time to dig out of the hole I’m in now” <– I really hate this phrase. Is it really vacation if your return to work means twice as much work for the same amount of time you were gone? A sound strategy would include properContinue reading “Digging out after vacation is wrong”
The CNN Breaking news email just now starts with: “Wow! The U.S. economy suddenly looks a lot perkier in the third quarter”. Seriously CNN? Breaking news should not contain the following words or phrases: WOW, Awesome, Super Rad, party on, hipster, selfie, twerking, bofu, wicked, bust a moby, deck, life is like a box ofContinue reading “Seriously CNN?”
CNN Alert just now: President Obama, Russian President Putin agreed at G-20 summit to need for “cessation of the violence” in Syria. WHAT? This is breaking news? We agreed that violence is bad. Thank God we got THAT cleared up.
I can’t watch the new and “improved” versions of the original 3 Star Wars movies without wanting to throw something. Why George Lucas? why? Did you just not get what made these movies great? What were you thinking when you decided to add crappy CGI all over the place? Arg!
I can’t. I need to use an external tool like Tweetdeck to keep my life sane and I need to write once and post multiple locations. Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook make this easy, so my stuff gets posted there. Google+ makes this almost impossible so they don’t get my posts. So stupid Google. I’m TRYINGContinue reading “I want to use G+ but”

Netflix runs a top 100 list of their most popular titles. On that list today, 5 of the movies areContinue reading “The problem with Netflix streaming”
Just 2 feet from the floor, my poor phone wasn’t strong enough to withstand the impact. Our dog Brandy spent some time reflecting on the short life of this phone (plus she’ll pose for a picture when there’s a treat in her future)
I’m hearing this stuff WAY too much lately: I’m not smart enough for that I’m not ready for that yet I want to but this is outside of my area of my expertise I want to, but I can’t because of my job When I get this degree/certification then I’ll be ready for that dreamContinue reading “I’m not good enough is not good enough”
One of my most used programs is Evernote. I use it all day, every day. From my Mac, my Ubuntu boxes, my Blackberry and my iPod touch. I’m a premium user which costs me $45/year. A reasonable price to me. Last night, they updated the Mac client to include a small ad box in theContinue reading “Why is Evernote asking to be paid bad?”
We canceled the last of our Comcast services this afternoon at my home. Our Verizon FIOS is so good I tell everyone about it, so we switched to their TV service as well. Here’s the conversation as I cancelled the service: Comcast Rep: Good afternoon, how can I help you today? Me: I’d like toContinue reading “So long Comcast, can’t say we’ll miss you”
