Anti-Gravity Lawn Chair

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 02:26:57 +0000

Pretty much, anti-gravity lawns chairs are kind of the best thing in the world. My wife picked one this blue one on Amazon, originally, I had protested.

Irony 2.0 Circa 2006

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 00:12:56 +0000

Back in 2006, when Brandon was the master of all things MySpace, I made a graphical prediction. He informed me that it came true.

Matthew Korfhage Can Fly

Matthew Korfhage’s article about fluoridation nearly caused me to go into cardiac arrest.

I am never an early adopter, particularly when it comes to new search engines and new social networks, but I have to say, I find the new search engine Blekko to actually be an useful tool. Not so much for it’s search results, but more for the SEO data is provides. I suspect those in […]

Just Testing Ping Services

Mon, 01 Nov 2010 03:05:47 +0000

I guess there is a problem with wordpress pinging I’ll see if it works. Update: No problems with pings on this end.

How To Replace a Dell Mini 9 Keyboard

Sun, 24 Oct 2010 17:38:43 +0000

I have this little Dell Mini 9 Hackintosh that has been quite fun and useful for when I’m running around doing BarFly business. It’s easier than lugging around my main laptop, and it’s easier for entering happy hour info than using my iPhone. However, the keyboard recently went out on me. It was quite odd, […]

Forgetting Old Domains

Wed, 09 Jun 2010 23:24:35 +0000

I always forget about moldy old sites I own, and then I saw another automatic renewal for, which covers point of sale systems.. I think the content on there is about 5 years old. Maybe I should clean it up. Maybe.

Webfu Design Is Trying Out

And he is trying it with the Twitter Updater WordPress plugin. I hope it works! WordPress/Twitter Post Plugin Test

Testing out a WordPress plugin that updates Twitter while shortening the permalink with

Ignoregon Launched

Tue, 07 Oct 2008 19:30:45 +0000

At some point a little over a week ago I whipped up a temporary Oregon blog aggregator to take the place of the much beloved and missed Other efforts with programmers far better than myself are underway too. In full disclosure, I’m just posting this as an excuse to test how well my ping […]

Bulk Flower Seeds

Wed, 30 Apr 2008 18:08:54 +0000

I just finished a minor little project with my friend Kyley, who works in the bulk flower seed industry. I learned all kinds of fascinating stuff about the wildflower seed business. There is quite an interesting set of interaction between growers, wholesalers, and retailers. Often the lines get blurred, as growers buy their own seed […]

New Features on BarFly

Mon, 12 Mar 2007 22:28:51 +0000

I’ve been working a little harder on BarFly lately. I realized I was not logging search queries generated by our users. How stupid of me to neglect an asset that helps me learn a ton about what kind of information people are seeking. I started logging this stuff and found ways I could make our […]

I Wear Baby Clothing

Fri, 16 Feb 2007 01:27:53 +0000

Okay, I really don’t. Trust me, I’ve seen those baby people. The people who dress like babies. In all seriousness my friend Jason recently had a baby and his fiance is a product reviewer for baby clothing. They recently started a website reviewing all sorts of toddler type clothing, and Megan seems well adept at […]

Happy Hour PDX!

Wed, 14 Feb 2007 05:29:30 +0000

You wouldn’t think it would take this long, but I finally got around to adding Portland happy hour info to BarFly. There are still a good 200 bars that need updating, but maybe I’ll be able to get around to it. With all the good happy hour sites out there, I knew I’d better get […]

Sellwood Antique Stores

Thu, 21 Dec 2006 18:32:10 +0000

Emma Juhlin finally sent me another article. That chick rocks. She wrote a wonderful guide to the antique stores in Portland‘s Sellwood Neighborhood. It fits nicely with her other article about Bernadette Breu.

Cedar Cupolas at

Sun, 10 Dec 2006 23:50:41 +0000

We recently added cedar cupolas on the Thiese products make a very complimentary addition to our cedar vents and decorative shutters. Cupolas can be either decorative or functional, and provide extremely adequate ventilation when it comes to venting attics and barns.

Opera 3.0 Mini

Tue, 28 Nov 2006 21:44:15 +0000

Opera released version 3.0 of their mini mobile browser today. I’m a-gonna have to download it. I’ve always been an advocate of developing sites that were mobile friendly (provided they are sites that a mobile user would find useful.) They are of course dropping the “web 2.0” buzzwords, but have some added nifty features such […]

Diamond Shaped Gable Vents

Tue, 28 Nov 2006 01:22:17 +0000

We have been getting bad about adding new products to…bad in the way that we don’t add enough. Luckily, Frank has been better about sending me photos, most recently he sent me a photo of a diamond shaped gable vent. So now I have added diamond vents to our website. I assume we will […]

Why ReInvent the Wheel

Mon, 20 Nov 2006 18:36:07 +0000

Sometimes, I think I waste too much time trying writing custom scripts to perform functions similar to existing open source ones. Part of my problem in that regards is that I’m a control freak: there is always some special set of features that aren’t included in available packages, and I always convince myself that it […]

Web Video vs. Cable

Thu, 02 Nov 2006 19:45:40 +0000

WebProNews published an article today entitled “The Future of Web Video“. YouTube might be the media darling (and I’m the old man who yearns from the halcyon days of the internet, when having a dot com name meant you could afford Network Solutions’ high fees and crappy email template registration thingy. The article barely glosses […]

Quitting Smoking

Wed, 25 Oct 2006 01:36:45 +0000

Nine days ago, I accidently quit smoking. Pretty amazing, eh? I wasn’t planning on it, it just kind of happened. 7 days ago, it became a conscious effort, one which I have been doing well with. I decided to document in with a new blog: Kyle Quits Smoking

Portland Lighting

Thu, 12 Oct 2006 17:35:16 +0000

Jaime, the wonderful lady writing articles for PDXinteriors, has recently submitted an article about the importance of lighting as it pertains to interior design. She spoke briefly with David Ellis of Lux Lighting here in Portland. So if you are looking for some lighting tips, you know what to do. In addition, Emma Juhlin wrote […]

I recently updated my Portland Interior Design site, with a nice new profile about antique decor and furniture, written by the wonderful Emma Juhlin. So that’s sweet.
