As a Multi-Millionaire…

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

My wife and I like to think strategically about our future.  Planning and foresight can save you a lot of grief and work in earnest.
In the event that we should become multi-millionaires in the future, we want to make sure we know what we’re going to do with the money.  The following is an ongoing […]

The Hot is Here to Stay

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

Well…that’s it, folks; it’s official.  Summer is here and it’s not going to be getting any cooler for a while.  Enjoy the longer days, bar-b-q’s, swimming, and sun.  The lake still isn’t up to a satisfactory level for those using it recreationally, but at least it’s still here!
Balthazar and I swam in it just this […]

The Year is 2035…

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

Perhaps some of you are aware of Charles Lindbergh’s other work.  Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 1927, but a few years later he was able to get some time with the surgeon, Dr. Alexis Carrel to discuss some common interests.  It turns out that Lindbergh believed it to be possible to build a heart […]

Internet, Spread your Wings and Fly

Thursday, October 18th, 2007

I used to be one of those elitist programmers that sought out the most obscure uses of the DOM or unknown HTML tags. Hell, I used to only use VBScript, and throw out angry comparisons of my pure VBScript solution to a JavaScript one.

Equifax Customer Service is Just Lip Service

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

In an attempt to make some mid-year resolutions, I am trying to be more diligent about managing finances and monitoring things like my credit report. I wasn’t the victim of an identity theft crime, but then again, how would I know? I just decided that I should take an active interest in things […]

Polar Cities

I must prefix this post with a bit of back story…
A reader in Taiwan, Danny Bee, left a comment on an article I wrote (“Emily Yoffe Learns The Secret“). I had first assumed that the comment was spam, though the suspect spam did not follow my preconceived notions of spam. It had no […]

57% Chance of Surviving a Zombie Attack

57%
It’s not particularly good, though not all together bad either. I think the quiz is rigged. It never asked me how good I was with knives.
Thanks for the meme, Spazz.

Emily Yoffe Learns ‘The Secret’

Saturday, May 12th, 2007

Emily Yoffe at Slate.com recently wrote a piece for the Human Guinea Pig column regarding The Secret. I haven’t read the book myself, but I did read The Power of Intention which I am to understand is a similar concept. Emily retells her two month account of following the book’s advice and finds […]

Disney World!

Friday, April 20th, 2007

Balthazar’s first trip (at 4-years-old) to Disney World is coming up. We told him about it last night and it has been non-stop question and harassment about it. We were careful not to tell him until just days before we left. We wanted him to have one day at school to brag […]

Philips DVP5960

Monday, February 19th, 2007

I just bought a new DVD player to replace our perfectly working existing version. But this one is so much cooler! It has a USB port on the front, which most people gloss over at the mere mention of interrelations between household electronics and computer technology. However, I see the potential here. […]
