  • Why music really is getting louder

    Why music really is getting louder-Arts & Entertainment-Music-TimesOnline For a serious music lover like me, this has been an issue for several years now. How loud and distorted became synonymous with sounding better is beyond me. Maybe I’m an audio snob, but I like to hear all the dynamic range. I like all the small […]

  • A Day to Remember

    June 6, 1944 It was a long time ago, but it is a day no one should ever forget. Several thousand men and women died on that first day, and many more would follow on the road to Berlin. Personally, I’ve always been fascinated by history, but this particular period has always been the most […]

  • Cleaner Desktop

    For those of you with Macs, check out Five Steps to a Kinkless Desktop. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty anal about keeping my desktop clean. Ethan is the author of kGTD, a great set of scripts that allows you to use the GTD system in OmniOutliner. It is so succesful that OmniGroup […]

  • Minor problem — fixed now!

    Don’t know what happened, but yesterday all my internal site links broke. Either my hosting environment or I did something goofy. Anyway, after a few installs and data imports, I think I have everything back now. If anyone was watching, that’s why the feed and/or the site may have acted strange yesterday. Sorry about that.

  • Getting up Early

    I stubbled on 10 Benefits of Rising Early, and How to Do It, and I have to admit it is good stuff. Until my kids were born, I was never much of an early riser, but since then I find that I can’t sleep late anymore. When I do, I feel like I missed something. […]

  • Very Cool Offices

    Saw this post on Guy Kawasaki’s blog. There are many pictures of the Threadless offices in Chicago. I don’t know how much software or technology they work with, but those have to be some of the coolest offices I’ve ever seem. It’s like working in your college apartment, but with an actual budget for toys. […]

  • Really Bad Customer Service

    Long ago in another life I was a Mac user (at least at home). I also became a loyal Quicken user. This was back in 1991 or 1992. Along the way, I bit the bullet and replaced my home Mac with a PC (grudgingly). Now, I’m back to a Mac at home and loving it. […]

  • Welcoming Declan to the world

    My son, Declan, was born March 31, 2007. Declan is my wife and I’s third child. The twins, Cameron and Zoe, are very excited. We are all a little sleep deprived, but that is to be expected. The great thing about is that this time nothing will bother me. I remember leaving the hospital with […]
