Aural Bliss

I just got back from the store and I purchased a set of Logitech Z-560 speakers. They’re absolutely amazing, the sound is so crisp and clear, and the bass is incredible. Not to mention the volume, at 400 watts I have to keep it turned down almost all the way to be bearable. The subwoofer […]

Gunaway Bride

Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction: Bride shoots truck thief hours before wedding. What’s funny is that he actually got away, albiet wounded and with a broken truck. I wouldn’t want to mess with this lady.

Well I’m Screwed

Growing

You may (or may not) have noticed some new widgets on the site. First, I’m working on the JazzQuotes system. Right now all it does is echo a random quote, but eventually as the database becomes more inclusive it’ll have more features, including being able to browse by author (jazzer) and the ability to submit […]

Keyboard Compare Applet for Dvorak and Qwerty Keyboards

I’ve found a very cool site: Keyboard Compare Applet for Dvorak and Qwerty Keyboards. The Dvorak layout places the keys you most under the fingers best suited to use them. Plugging the top 500 words from the english language into the applet came up with some interesting results: your fingers would have moved 72.09 meters […]

4th of July

Celebrating America’s independence yesterday was excellent, from the fireworks to the food. The pictures came out pretty well too. Update: About 30 new pictures have been added, so check it out. Captions too.

MIB II

I saw MIB II on the IMAX screen yesterday, and it was impressive. I don’t think the movie was quite as good as the first one, if anything it seemed to be a bit of a spoof on the first one. It was quite funny at times, it’s just the plot struggled sometimes. But the […]

Danger of games

Yesterday I did nothing. Not a lazy day, not a restful day, a day where a video game completely took over my day. The game is called Black and White, and it’s not even that new, about a year and a half old. But anyway I just got it and once I started it I […]

New design

Today is the first of what will be 12 designs over the next year, each themed for the month they’re released. Happy July! (a little early) Please leave any comments on this theme below.

Houston

Back in Houston, finally, and it’s nice adjusting back to old habits and comforts. Besides family and pets, I think the thing I missed most were my speakers, and it’s bliss to hear high fidelity sound again. Uploaded the last day from the trip, so enjoy! I’m also working on some layout/design changes for this […]

Big meetings tomorrow

As opposed to today, which looks like it’s going to be pretty bland, tomorrow I’ll have the incredibly oppurtunity to meet with two of my biggest role models, Mike Godwin and Declan McCullagh. I’m so excited! Tomorrow’s posts should be interesting.

Updates

I can’t find time to write everyday, but there is almost always a new day in the photolog. Baltimore was a blast today, and the Orioles/Yankee game was one of the best I’ve ever seen, live or on TV. I hope that the teams in Houston can bring back the magic that they seem to […]
