Super Fun Time

  • Can I click my heels and get this?

    You ever really want to be capable of something that you’re positive you’ll never achieve? I’m a guy who constantly has ideas yet never has the capability to make them come to life. Most of my ideas are web based and nothing ground breaking but if I were capable of putting that idea into an actual working form, I feel they would be useful to some people. Yet, I’m cursed with not having any knowledge of a programming language and this horrible inability to focus enough to learn.

  • I’m just a stupid man

    Does anyone else notice the heavy slant toward smart women and dumb men in almost everything in the media today? For instance, the Walmart commercial with the woman who buys steaks and the husband has no idea why but won’t say anything. Nevermind this couple’s obvious communication issues, it’s obvious this guy has no clue what’s going on in his life. And of course, let’s not forget the innumerable sitcoms of idiot men with attractive, smart women by their side.

  • Snow Leopard is here!

    I’m installing Snow Leopard on my Macbook right now! I opted for a fresh install so I had to dump everything onto external drives but that wasn’t hard. Hopefully this is worth the time. More after I’ve had time to play with it.

  • Success and how we get there.

    I like to think I rarely use this space to get very personal but I think a lot of us suffer from this affliction and therefore I feel safe discussing it. I’m the kind of person who has a problem with obtaining better and better items to attempt to assist whatever hobby I’m into. Let me give you the moral of the story up front; in most situations, the tools of the trade, no matter how expensive or fancy they are, will not suddenly give you super powers to be awesome at what you try.

  • Fresh ink and a nib

    Sometimes I’m not sure if there’s anything better than inking a fountain pen with a new color of ink. I don’t know what it is, I just love that feeling of holding a writing instrument that has been manually filled with ink and is ready to dispense words to my chosen canvas. This post inspired by the fact that I just filled my Pelikan M200 fountain pen with Mont Blanc British Racing Green ink to take notes on a programming language book I’m reading.

  • My Dell Mini 9 gets a new OS

    A while back I purchased a Dell Mini 9 with the sole intent of turning it into a Hackintosh. If you’re not familiar with that, it’s the name given to machines that aren’t Apple products but are hacked to run OS X. I’ve had this little machine running Leopard ever since the day I got it and it even lead me to purchase a Macbook a few months ago. OS X is a great operating system and I can’t say I’ve ever been happier with a computer than I am with that.

  • Organization take 50

    I’m a horribly unorganized person. You can probably tell that by reading my writing, I think it accurately reflects how my brain works. One thing I’ve found is that my brain tends to stop and dwell on a subject once something has stuck in my head. If I just leave it in my head, I spend an abnormal amount of time dwelling on it and thereby taking up a lot of brain power that could be used elsewhere.

  • Octoberfest is here

    As much as I dread the coming of fall and winter, I’m incredibly excited that Sam Adams Octoberfest is in stores now. I just picked up a case and am enjoying a nice ice cold glass right now. One of my favorite beers by far.

  • Recipe for obesity

    This weekend was overcast and cool yet most likely perfect for riding a bicycle. I have a goal to learn how to 180 bunny hop before winter gets here. My activities included lying on the couch reading a book and occasionally getting up to find food. I suck.

  • And a friendly greeting to you!

    I think my brain has a mis-wire in the greeting department. It’s not every time, but more often than not, I’m left shaking my head at my ridiculous responses. The majority of my greetings are made in the hallway of my workplace. I’m not a big socialite so the greeting is almost always offered by the other person and the burden of response is left to me. For some reason, my brain handles this by repeating the greeting back to them in the same manner as it was offered.
