  • March Poker Update

    Those of you who know me, know that I’ve had a 2.5 year obsession with online poker. Lately, it has fizzled a bit (OK, more than a bit). Not for lack of interest, but for lack of time, and other obsessions not letting go. Last night and today, I finally played a bit. […]

  • Rediscovering Live Music

    Sorry folks, this is likely gonna be another long one. It’s 5:30pm on a Sunday, and I’m relaxing in the hotel down near Zope, and this is what I feel like doing at the moment… From my mid-teens until my early twenties, I was a fanatic for going to live concerts. I went […]

  • XM Radio

    Two years ago, very good friends of ours bought me an amazing present, a Roady 2 XM Radio player, along with a monthly subscription. I had thought about getting one before they got it for me. It’s a relatively obvious thing for people who spend as much time in the car as we […]

  • Shavers and Brand Names

    I hate to shave. I’m sure there are a few guys who don’t mind it, or even like it, but not me. That said, while I don’t mind having stubble, I don’t feel like growing a beard nor a moustache (and I’m not sure Lois would allow me to either). Further, if I […]

  • Delectable Duck!

    My most loyal readers should already be salivating, as they have all personally had the experience I’m about to describe. 🙂 Those who know me know that perhaps my favorite restaurant (though there are many that I love) is the Peking Duck House in mid-town in NYC. I had dinner there last night. […]

  • I’m a Phone Weenie

    OK, I admit it. Rob Page, CEO of Zope Corporation officially coined me a phone weenie a number of weeks ago. He’s right. Of course, he also directly benefits from that feature in me, since I am the primary Asterisk PBX administrator at Zope Corp. 😉 So, what does it mean to be […]

  • SPAM is back under control

    I know, what a silly thing to say, and in public at that! Previously, I posted on my woes in having old SpamBayes filtering starting to fail and new procmail rules that I foolishly put in myself causing me to suffer from spam more than usual. I am happy to report that it’s […]

  • In Praise of SIDUX

    I said I wouldn’t write about the old Dell Latitude L400 again, unless there was a “breakthrough”. Well, there hasn’t been one, so I’m not really writing about that machine (but of course, I really am) 😉 Really, this is more of a Linux posting than a specific laptop one… So, unless you’re […]
