Filtering Your Pokemon List in Pokemon GO


Last year, my kids got me playing Pokemon GO. It's been a lot of fun. But like everyone else, there are a few things I'd like to see improved in the game. While my kids are at the movies with my wife tonight, I thought I'd take a few minutes to share one of my...

99% of People Can’t Solve This Puzzle Because…


The other 1% can't solve it because it's just a bunch of gobbledygook, and not a puzzle at all. But I'll bet we can make it go viral anyway amongst people trying to get their friends to help solve it. Please help me out by using the share buttons that appear when you hover over...

Trading Up from a Computer Fan to an ASUS TF700T


It's time to try something fun -- a Trade-Up! Have you heard the story of the guy who traded a paper clip for a house? I'm not kidding. It took him almost a year and 14 trades to get there, but he managed to trade up in value from one red paper clip to a...

A few days ago, I was surprised to see that, according to Google Webmaster Tools, a lot of the pages on several of my sites were marked as "Not Selected" for indexing.

I was watching a video of a business consultation my bother (the lawyer) did with a local businessman recently. One of the things he said was that fear is always a bad value. Sometimes people say that fear is good when it keeps you from doing dumb things. And that's true. But the point is...

Friends Don’t Let Friends Share Dumb Pictures


Am I the only one who gets a little annoyed by all those "share this if you..." pictures on Facebook? I love my kids, support causes A, B and C, and all that. But I don't want to share the pictures. Especially when they're nothing but a cutesy, pink background and some words that imply...

Droplet (Mac OS) for Launching KindleGen


If you use Amazon's KindleGen program to generate Kindle eBooks on the Mac, I've got a little script for you that will enable you to drag-and-drop your source material and run KindleGen automatically, rather than having to open a Terminal window and type filenames and paths on the command line. Copy the following code and...

What I Don't Like About Mac OS X Lion


I recently got a new Mac Mini. I love having so much computer in such a small, quiet package. But I do have a few gripes about changes between Leopard and Lion, mostly having to do with differences between Spaces and Mission Control. First, when I switch between apps (using cmd-tab or by clicking an...
