Novice archer

Wed, 06 Mar 2013 04:30:32 +0000

I’m a bit notorious in my family for diving headlong into new hobbies and interests. Photography, cycling, and thrifting for menswear are some of my recent adventures, and now I can add archery to the list. Unfortunately, precious few of my interests are free or even inexpensive. My wife is a kind and generous woman. […]

Off-camera flash on the cheap

Mon, 07 Jan 2013 00:17:40 +0000

Santa brought cash this year, so I decided to use the proceeds (plus some leftover birthday money) to indulge my photography habit. I’ve been a huge Joe McNally and David Hobby fan since I bought my first DSLR, a Nikon D7000, a couple years ago. Those two photographers are masters of producing amazing photos with […]

Twin Cities Marathon tips

Fri, 05 Oct 2012 04:11:41 +0000

If you’ve never run a marathon before, the pre-race chaos of the starting line area can be pretty intimidating, and it’s easy to get away from your race plan. (You have a race plan, right?) After running three of them myself, I’ve come up with a few tips that might help a Twin Cities Marathon […]

The birthday problem revealed

Wed, 03 Oct 2012 18:04:15 +0000

It’s my birthday today so in celebration I’m linking to a fun article on the New York Times Opinionator site called “It’s My Birthday Too, Yeah.” If at least 253 people read this post there’s a greater than 50% chance that at least one of them will be celebrating a birthday today too. So happy […]

Non-cognitive skills count too

Wed, 19 Sep 2012 01:53:01 +0000

Ira Glass and his This American Life team produced a dynamite program for last week’s broadcast. Their Back To School episode described the work of Paul Tough and his new book How Children Succeed. According to Tough and the other guests on the show, traditional cognitive skills of the sort most often measured by standardized […]

A farewell salute to IT Conversations

Tue, 18 Sep 2012 21:53:09 +0000

We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished. Much of what we’ve pioneered in the past ten years is now commonplace. Our goal was to make it easy for others to produce audio recordings of events and make them available to the world for free. That’s now the norm. We have succeeded. We’ve helped event producers and […]

Rogue pruner

Tue, 18 Sep 2012 03:04:37 +0000

Were I not the law-abiding citizen that I am, I’m not sure I could resist taking my pruner under the cover of night and fixing this tree. It’s been bothering me every day for several years on my drive home from work. I’m about to go all tree ninja on it.

How much would Voter ID cost?

Thu, 13 Sep 2012 02:36:29 +0000

There seems to be a bit of a disagreement on that point. From the opponents: A report last week from Citizens for Election Integrity Minnesota, which opposes the amendment, estimates that rolling out the new system could cost at least $36.5 million and possibly as much as $77.6 million for state and local governments. The […]

Automated bank statement filing with Hazel

Fri, 07 Sep 2012 20:18:42 +0000

In a continuing effort to utilize automated tools to eliminate paper from my life and tidy up my filing system, I’ve been working on some additional Hazel recipes to manage the monthly statements my bank accounts produce. This one got a little tricky because I wanted a fully automated solution that would extract the proper […]

Live From Daryl’s House

Fri, 07 Sep 2012 14:03:22 +0000

I practically live on the Internet, so how is it that I missed this amazing Web series Live From Daryl’s House? As a child of the 80s I connect automatically with Daryl Hall’s music, but some readers my age and younger may not know of the earlier R&B music that Hall and Oates created in […]
