I'm a Twit

Joined Twitter. Can only speak in 140 characters at a time. I’m a little uncomfortable with that since so many of my ideas need complex explanations. However, Simone says I tend to over-describe things, so maybe this is a good way to start getting my blog entries down from thousand-word essays on nothing in particular. […]

Boredom Ensues – Links Edition

NASA and ESA have announced their next major space launch – flights to the Galileian moons, including Europa. http://www.nasa.gov/topics/solarsystem/features/20090218.html Clearly, 2010 is the worse time to launch such a mission. All these worlds are yours, except Europa. Attempt no landing there. Use them together. Use them in peace.      If this sees the light of day, this doesn’t even need to have a […]

In Praise Of Crappy Movies

Following my move in with Simone, I found I had to change my viewing habits to find things more worth my time. As a result, I really haven’t visited the horror section of the Rogers Video for some time, and I’m more inclined to throwing in a tried and true blockbuster Sci-fi than a B-movie. […]

A New Place To Call Home

As if getting a new job, getting married, a big-ass TV and a PS3 weren’t enough to change my life. Last week Simone and I bought a house over on the east side of Toronto. It’s a five minute walk north of the Danforth between Donlands and Greenwood. It’s a pretty good neighbourhood. For some […]

Honesty in Technical Support

Well, McAfee makes it more difficult than ever to navigate their site to find manual updates available for download. The auto-update on my parents’ dialup connection was estimating several hours of full bandwidth hogging downloading. You can’t do ANYTHING while the software is forcing an update. I contacted the online support for help in finding […]

A Prediction for 2009

I’ve noticed a couple of things. They’ve led me to a conclusion I cannot ignore, nor do I want to be one of those people who say after-the-fact “ah, I saw that coming”. “Macintosh” will die this year… even if in name only. Apple will be dropping the moniker. Mark my words, and buy me […]

Not Quite There Yet

I managed to get a wireless keyboard so that typing on the netbook in the evenings would be easier, but I’m missing the inspiration to write. It’s just not there. I might have used it up on the handful of wedding thank-you cards I’ve already written tonight, or it just might be a day full […]

Out of Practice

Still getting the hang of writing in the evening. Last night Simone and I were going through wedding photos and sorting out music for the wedding video. There’s really a hell of a lot to do for a wedding, even after the day is over. We’re still working our way through the Thank You cards, […]

The A/V Geek of Stephen is Happy

No more than hours after posting my intentions, I received encouragement naught. Simply, “so where’s the Dec 1 Blog entry? Hmm?” …said the kettle to the pot. The first topic to cover isn’t my new job. I’m a couple days away from being “full time”, so I’ll cover that later this week. I won’t yet […]
