Goodbye, DreamHost

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 05:32:49 +0000

I can’t believe that I’m canceling my DreamHost account, just one month shy of my 10 year anniversary with them. I first signed up for my DreamHost account back in January of 2006. For the most part, it’s been a great experience. I originally signed up for the two-year plan for $214.80 ($8.95/month), and added […]

How to migrate a CVS module to Git and GitHub

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 05:16:07 +0000

Since it took me a while to figure out, I figured this might be useful to document: migrating code from CVS to Git. Specifically, I was moving modules in a CVS repository on SourceForge over to GitHub. Here are the versions of the tools that I used: $ rsync --version | head -1 rsync version […]

Who does a boycott really hurt?

Fri, 27 Sep 2013 18:47:12 +0000

The latest social media shitstorm is about Guido Barilla saying, “I would not do a commercial with a homosexual family, not for lack of respect toward homosexuals – who have the right to do whatever they want without disturbing others – but because I don

Sometimes, the “Best By” date is right

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 21:10:22 +0000

Sam and I just had a conversation that went something like this: Sam: I think these peanuts don’t taste right. Me: Oh? Sam: The “best by” date said August… It’s been less than a month! Me: I guess that’s why they don’t taste their best, now… Sometimes, that “best by” date is no joke. Who […]

A lesson in buying eggs

Fri, 02 Aug 2013 17:04:18 +0000

The other day, my daughter was instructed to go get the eggs while out shopping, and she did. However, upon later inspection at home, it turns out several of the eggs were cracked in the carton she selected. It’s not until something like this happens that you realize how much we take for granted. At […]

Suzie and her monkey friend

Thu, 20 Jun 2013 15:52:10 +0000

Just testing out the WordPress iOS app’s handling of “Quick Photo” posting—I’m curious as to what markup it’ll generate. And, what better to use as a test than a great picture of Suzie with her little monkey friend? 🙂

Why PRISM, and programs like it, really don’t matter

Mon, 10 Jun 2013 04:35:28 +0000

The government obviously has had this data for quite some time, and no one I know of has been grabbed by the secret police, nor could they use the data to stop the Boston marathon bombing before it took place. Government organizations are simply incapable of making use of the data they have access to. […]

I’m still not blogging more

Tue, 26 Mar 2013 00:17:52 +0000

I honestly thought I would be blogging a little bit more, since switching from Android to iPhone, since the iOS WordPress app is so nice, but I just don’t seem to get into it. It’s just too easy to post short stuff to Twitter, and photos to Instagram or Facebook … I think a part […]

Debugging a strange MacOS X printing problem

Fri, 25 Jan 2013 22:21:19 +0000

At some point in time, something changed on my system that resulted in my printer no longer printing. (Cue a relevant scene from Office Space here…) A quick Googling of relevant keywords didn’t turn up anyone else complaining about what I was observing, so I did what any lazy person would do: I found another […]

iTunes 11 is a total failure

Fri, 30 Nov 2012 14:57:55 +0000

I just accepted the upgrade to iTunes 11 this morning, and am so incredibly disappointed. Can I downgrade back to iTunes 10.7? Thankfully, the iPhone wiki has an excellent list of Apple’s direct download links for past versions! Later, I’ll figure out how to uninstall this abomination and downgrade. Removal of iTunes DJ is a […]
