That poor lobster

Her face at 1:09 says it all. No sympathy at all. By the way, being able to upload and host your own .MP4 videos in WordPress 3.6 is a way cool feature.

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. […]

Report from the home front

As I embark on taking care of the household while Lily is away, I thought it would be a good idea to take notes for when she returns on the 2oth. It’s like a blog within a blog and I’m going to have fun with it. Monday Day 1 https://twitter.com/#!/jan_dembowski/status/179150138676232192 That didn’t go very well. […]

So! 10 days left to my own devices

After much prodding I have finally convinced Lily to post to her own blog. That intense conversation went like this and took a lot out of me. Me: You should post articles about what you are doing or topics you like. It’s fun. Her: Okay. Me: *blinks* Her: That looks new. Do you know where […]

Old content! Now in 3D!

The guys over at Wired re-published their old review of The Phantom Menace but with a difference. Using CSS and duplicating the content they were able to apply a 3D effect. It’s readable if you have the glasses. And of course, I do have 3D glasses. Naturally, I tried to do the same just for […]

See? Life does imitate art

I’m playing with the basement wireless AP when I saw this popup on Twitter. https://twitter.com/#!/gothamist/status/123033078770835457 Which of course made me think about Support Your Local Sheriff. Pa Danby: If that gun had gone off, it’d of blowed right up in my face. Jason McCullough: Now it wouldn’t have done my finger a hell of a […]

We are your typical American consumers

Sometimes you plan on buying one thing and end up getting something slightly different. As part of my job responsibility, I provide support after hours. It’s not something that happens frequently because the first and second level support is really good. If a problem is escalated to me during my personal time, I don’t question […]

I must be on a Jon Stewart roll

Okay, if you follow Fox news and you buy into the whole “class warfare” nonsense, then you too are an imbecile. You can still watch Fox news (no idea why myself) but don’t buy the spin. When Warren Buffet talks about closing loop holes, people should understand that he know’s what he’s talking about. He […]

Postpartum compassion…?

Oh, that Jon Stewart. It’s almost like he’s coming right out and saying Megyn Kelly is a hypocrite. The best line is this: See this, this is the problem with entitlements. They’re really only entitlements when they’re something other people want. When it’s something you want, they’re a hallmark of a civilized society, the foundation […]

Middle age? It took me forever to get here

As you get older, your habits change and you do different things. In the past I have spent a great deal of time building Linux servers and running my domain’s mail and spam filters, my own web servers for family web sites, ftp server, and sometimes hosting a game server. Linux and open source software […]
