Another Grinch. And this one succeeded in stealing Christmas from me!

25 Dec 2016 Leave a comment

Y’all know I’m an Atheist. Christmas as a religious holiday means nothing to me. Since my family is away, I’m on my own today. Sleeping in, planning a couple of nice meals. You know, making the day a little bit special. So there I am, eating my Eggs Benedict (which I flubbed!) and in comes this email. It’s from NextDoor. Subject: Pets

Various Matters

31 Jan 2014 3 comments

Greetings,

It’s 7:20 AM. I’ve got coffee by my hand, and a light breakfast (1/2 a grapefruit) in my belly.

My Take on Android vs. iOs

09 Oct 2011 1 comment

I’ve been an Android user for 2+ years, and I’ve avoided iOs for a number of reasons (which I’ll detail later). However, I now own an iPad2. I won it in a Twittering contest at a professional conference I attended 2 weeks ago. Since I wasn’t present at the end of the conference when the winner was announced (Damn American Airlines for changing my flight!), I’ve only had it 6 days now since it showed up FedEx where I work this past Monday. What follows is my personal take :
