Maybe my phone problem IS my own fault

I like to play with all of my toys and of course I rooted my HTC Thunderbolt phone long ago. I’ve done the whole gamut and have installed different ROMs including CyanogenMod, the unofficial ICS ROM from Team BAMF, and many flavors of Gingerbread. I’ve used apps that require root privileges, I’ve tethered and played with different radio […]

10 days till Borderlands 2

Here’s the Wimoweh teaser video. I’ve already pre-ordered via Steam. The original Borderlands game is still very addictive and I’ve played each of the 4 character classes. I’ve been looking forward to this game for months.

Golden Gate Bridge from Alcatraz

This was taken with my Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens with a circular polarizer from Alcatraz Island. Not too shabby. Except for cropping and straightening it out (I can’t quite get the horizon right holding the camera by hand) I hardly made any changes at all. Using Photoshop Elements 9 and saving for the web got me some banding […]

Or center embedded tweets with just CSS

After my earlier post on “Centering embedded tweets in WordPress” I’d gotten a reply from Ipstenu and Otto on Twitter. @jan_dembowski You can override it with CSS and !important.

Centering embedded tweets in WordPress

Update: While the below solution is fun and works, it’s a little heavy handed code-wise. It’s easier to modify the presentation of the tweet using CSS which I explain in the next post. A better solution is probably documented somewhere, but this worked for me and more importantly I had fun. I was reading a […]

Back from an 8 night Disney Cruise

I didn’t expect to enjoy it, but going on a Disney Cruise was lots of fun and the family will probably go on another trip sometime. I’ve not posted on my blog for weeks, so this one is going to be a long one.  🙂

Madagascar 3 in 3D

Years after 3D has become mainstream in the movie theaters, I finally saw my first one with the family. It was Madagascar 3 in 3D and we all liked it. The 3D wasn’t overdone and I think that’s what made it work. I put the Real D 3D glasses over mine and enjoyed the show. […]

Crayons! And Dragons!

Crayons and imagination, what else do you need? Oh yeah, a dragon really helps too. This cool animation is a double bonus as my little girl loves to draw and make things. The boy? He’s currently into WW II tanks, planes, submarines… You get the idea. 🙂 Thanks to the Mary Sue for posting this.

I really had no choice but to buy it

This game was released on April 30th and my pal Bob let me know. It’s available on Steam how could I not buy it? I really enjoyed the original version because you had to sneak around and keep relocating. If the enemy in the game found you and you didn’t have time to prepare booby […]

New T-shirts arrived

You would need to know something about using the Olympus Trip 35 to get why I like this T-shirt. I ordered 2 from a seller in the UK via eBay. 😀
