Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana

Sat, 27 Jul 2013 23:01:37 +0000

Wow, it’s been over a year since I posted here. I guess Twitter, Facebook, Quora and life are taking up all of my time. I used to worry that a blog post a day wasn’t frequent enough. Now a post a year?



That Sound from the Prometheus Trailer

Tue, 05 Jun 2012 03:08:47 +0000

If you’ve watched the trailers for Ridley Scott’s film Prometheus, you’ve probably noticed the jarring sound that’s played over and over at the end. It’s a disturbing mix of a scream and an alarm. Where have I heard that before? It’s not from any of the other Alien films. It was in the trailer for […]

Trying this out.



Where In The World Is Bob?

Tue, 26 Apr 2011 04:58:46 +0000

There’s been quite a lot of press coverage about an undisclosed feature in iOS 4 to track the location of an iPhone or iPad on an ongoing basis, storing the data to a hidden file in the form of latitude and longitude and a timestamp for each point. Apparently Android stores the same type of […]



Android Impressions

Sun, 09 Jan 2011 22:24:49 +0000

I’ve been looking to play around with an Android device but didn’t want to buy a new phone with a contract (and I’m happy with my iPhone 4). What I wanted was a device that was like the iPod touch but ran Android. There doesn’t seem to be anything like this on the market. And […]



Complexity Kills

Mon, 20 Dec 2010 06:19:25 +0000

Don Ferguson, the “father” of IBM WebSphere was recently interviewed by the BBC: What’s the biggest technology mistake you ever made – either at work or in your own life? When I was at IBM, I started a product called Websphere [which helps companies to operate and integrate business applications across multiple computing platforms]. Because […]



WordPress iPhone app

Trying out WordPress app for iPhone. Seems to work pretty well.



Tiger Oil Memos

Tue, 10 Aug 2010 05:47:48 +0000

The Tiger Oil Memos: From the offices of the now-defunct but at one time Houston-based Tiger Oil Company come a total of 22 enormously entertaining memos; all sent by, or on behalf of, the firm’s incredibly amusing, painfully tactless, and seemingly constantly angry CEO – Edward ‘Tiger Mike’ Davis – to his staff. What a […]



WP Super Cache

Tue, 10 Aug 2010 05:43:27 +0000

WordPress is pretty easy to set up and administer but WordPress-powered sites aren’t particularly fast since WordPress dynamically generates pages as they’re requested. I don’t ever expect to get much traffic on this blog but just in case, I followed Matt Brown’s advice and installed the WP Super Cache plug-in to convert WP content into […]



I could tell you but I’d have to kill you

Sun, 08 Aug 2010 00:28:18 +0000

A cocky line by Tom Cruise’s character in Top Gun that’s been used again, and again, and again. If you feel yourself about to say it, stifle the thought.
