In which The Turtle finally fires Verizon

Fri, 13 Jun 2008 13:54:07 -0400

I've finally had it.  I've been trying to pay my Verizon bill online for more than a month now, and I've finally given up.  We only kept the landline -- for thirty-something dollars a month -- in case we had to send a fax, and because I thought the ...



Wood, metal, oil, and diesel. And iPhone non-envy.

Tue, 10 Jun 2008 10:59:43 -0400

About half the time, when I start a new post, I have no idea what I'm about to write.  I sit down, and eventually the words start to form some kind of coherent theme, so I go back and reselect the category and reselect the Technorati tags.  And ...

Atlases, and getting over them

Sun, 13 Apr 2008 15:31:44 -0400

Gizmodo: Space Is Full Of Crap

Fri, 11 Apr 2008 14:48:06 -0400

I hope I'm not the only one wondering what will happen the first time a random piece of space junk collides with something expensive, explosive or fun-producing (like the Space Station, a nuclear-powered spy satellite, or your DishTV sat). Gizmodo wrote ...



The new hard drive (and IdeaJam) cannot possibly get here soon enough

Wed, 12 Mar 2008 20:31:45 -0400

The MacBook Pro is down to a mere 1.67 gig, barely enough space to turn around in in 2008.  And way below the empty space Mac OSX would like to have available to run efficiently. ...



The URL says it all...

Sun, 24 Feb 2008 18:38:32 -0400

Apparently a lot of other industry pundits large and small think Microsoft's new openness isn't real, it's either sandbagging or something being used to distract the industry while MS figures out what to do next.  I guess my instincts are fairly ...



Microsoft's new "openness" -- I call bullshit

Thu, 21 Feb 2008 12:26:13 -0400

Sorry, Ray.  You know I love you and all, but there's just no way you can steer the Titanic like it's a Z3. ...

Tue, 19 Feb 2008 11:34:38 -0400

Sat, 16 Feb 2008 17:59:05 -0400

Mon, 11 Feb 2008 15:08:16 -0400

We're having a strange problem with Camtasia's SnagIt when dealing with pages output from a Domino server, and as expected, their website is less than totally useful at explaining why. ...



The good ideas tend to hang around a long time. Unfortunately, so do the bad ones.

Fri, 8 Feb 2008 15:43:52 -0400

I was reading Wired while the entire detailed map of North America was downloading to my new GPS, and I realized that this was an idea I thought out fairly carefully back in 1995 when challenged by a now-retired executive at work to imagine how technology ...

Need the good, original HP LaserJet 1020 driver for Mac OSX? Here it is!

Thu, 5 Jul 2007 23:45:04 -0400

I went back through my comments and found a bunch of forgotten people who'd asked for the Mac OSX driver for the HP LaserJet 1020.  Well, here it is.  HP released this driver, then "updated it" to where it no longer supported the 1020 ...

Old enough to buy cigarettes

Tue, 3 Jul 2007 13:33:42 -0400

Just say no to iPhone

Wed, 27 Jun 2007 01:23:53 -0400

Suzanne: now playing at a website near you

Sun, 10 Jun 2007 23:32:09 -0400
