do this action for all current items. no, really.
okay, so i’m on windows 7. i’m transferring files (about 300mb of them) from my linux server to my local hard drive. there’s some lag on the network due to the server running a backup to a NAS backup server while i’m doing this. eventually, some file transfer times out and i’m given a dialog… Continue reading do this action for all current items. no, really.
how am i going to tell my kids there’s no christmas this year?
gather ’round the fire, kiddies, it’s story time. i’ve been hanging on to this one for a good long while, but it’s time for this rant to come out and rear it’s ugly head. mostly, it’s a tale in which we laugh at people who have not been born with an overabundance of intelligence, but… Continue reading how am i going to tell my kids there’s no christmas this year?
technology so cheap, it’s disposable
the other day i tweeted about a recent acquisition. i found a computer lying in the street in the universal, “take this, it’s free” position. i had little doubt that was actually the intent because the moisture underneath the pc case told me it had probably been out overnight. i took it home figuring it looked… Continue reading technology so cheap, it’s disposable

someone put me out of my g33k’d misery
i feel like steve jobs is playing a cruel game of punk’d on me. so here’s the deal. i have a macbook. many applications that i want to use don’t work or don’t seem to be entirely supported or have weird issues in tiger (such as the bizarre instance of photoshop not being able to… Continue reading someone put me out of my g33k’d misery
so if you aren’t following me on twitter, you may not know that i got a laptop in the mail yesterday. my new toy is a 13″ macbook with osx tiger, 2gb ram, 60gb hd and 2ghz (actually i think maybe 2.2 ghz) processor. i got it on ebay for a total of $710 including… Continue reading new toy
quick note about jazzsequence network…
looks like the single sign-on thing isn’t working right….when you create your wp account it doesn’t pass the authentication to the members/community site. sorry about this folks, i’m getting it worked on. UPDATE well i got the join link up top working…sorta. it’s just not using the single sign-on. but it’s a temporary fix… UPDATE… Continue reading quick note about jazzsequence network…
one more to file under “it’s always something”…
in my last post, i expressed my woe at the sudden upheaval of my computer. today i woke up excited because my hardware was coming. now i have a history of always forgetting something. i get a new motherboard but the processor doesn’t match. i get a motherboard and processor but don’t have the right… Continue reading one more to file under “it’s always something”…
