Month: May 2007

  • May Poker Results

    Wow, May was not a good month. At least not economically. Let’s lead off with the bottom line, because it’s ugly, and I want to get it out of the way: -$74.09. Whew. I could go on and on about how many unlucky hands I had, and it would be true, but it […]

  • DKIM and Thunderbird 2.0

    In an effort to get a handle on who is signing messages with DKIM, I just added a message filter which automatically tags and stars any message that has been signed. I can now visually see which domains/users are DKIM-enabled, and get a sense for whether the mass is coming, and how quickly, […]

  • DKIM now installed

    DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) is now running on my server. I don’t think there are enough sites using it yet for it to have been worth my effort (it was more effort than I expected it to be), but now it’s done, so we’ll see. Of course, if everyone else also said “It’s […]

  • So close, and yet, so far…

    Well, the semi-final started at 8pm. 1931 entrants, top 100 move on to the final, so roughly 5% make it… When there were 184 left, I was in 82nd, so it was looking possible, if not probable. Then I went card dead. When there were 113 left, I was in 113th. Still, I […]

  • Temporary success against the odds 😉

    I’ll save the normal monthly poker update for the end of the month, where it belongs. 😉 In the meantime, I’ll report on an interim success story, which might not have a happy ending, but at least had a happy beginning. 🙂 Today, I played in a tournament in the morning, and did […]

  • Sometimes technology lets you down 🙁

    I forced myself to take my long walk today. As usual, I am extremely glad that I did, but for one thing. I walk with an iPod, with a Logitech Bluetooth headset. For the first leg of my walk, I was listening to Wicked (I know, huge surprise) 😉 but in the middle […]

  • Martina McBride Rules!

    This could easily get very long, so either settle in, or bail now, seriously! 🙂 Last night, Lois and I went to Radio City Music Hall to see Martina McBride perform. From past posts (or if you just happen to know us), you know that Lois is a country music fanatic. However, for […]

  • Twitter

    In early March, I discovered Twitter by reading this post on Jamie’s blog. I immediately signed up for an account. Even though Jamie’s blog claimed that he didn’t see an immediate application for it, I did. Lois and I follow the lives of our godchildren via their away messages. 🙂 That’s useful, but […]

  • Welcome WordPress 2.2 🙂

    Announcement went out 35 minutes ago, and I’ve already successfully upgraded. Haven’t touched anything that’s new, but here it is, waiting to be abused. 🙂

  • Eric Sink and Sourcegear Rock!

    I’ve been a T-Shirt nut my whole life. I have hundreds of them, and prefer to wear one over any other form of shirt. So, when Eric Sink offered up an opportunity to earn a very cool Sourcegear T-Shirt, I couldn’t resist. 🙂 As promised, here are front and back shots of me […]
