  • Table2CSS is Cool

    Two days ago, I wrote about a website that I was working on for a new friend. I mentioned that it was written a while ago, optimized for 800×600. It was rigidly coded, with very complex nested tables, with multi-column and multi-row spans, with absolute positioning, with image backgrounds in each cell, stitching […]

  • Jerry Douglas at Blue Note

    Last night we saw Jerry Douglas play at the Blue Note in NYC. We saw him and the same band (with the exception of the drummer) on April 23rd at BB King. I wrote a long post about that show the next day. Every word in that post applies to last night’s show […]

  • Fixing an Old Website

    Lois and I have recently befriended an amazing Nashville-based Singer/Songwriter. Since I intend to write a long post about him in the coming weeks, I’ll leave his identity as a mystery for the moment, since it has little to do with the specifics of this post. The story of how we met him […]

  • No Shame Left In Politics

    To be honest, there’s really little shame left in the country (world?) in general, but in politics, it’s effectively non-existent. I could write all day about this topic, or have a post-a-day for a very long time. Instead, I’ll cram it in to this one post. First, John McCain. Two recent giant disappointments. […]

  • September 2008 Poker

    Since I won’t be playing tonight, I can safely report this month’s results. Also, since I intend to keep this very short, I’ll start with the bottom line, then a few highlights. Bottom line: Profit of $642.25. Not bad. 🙂 I finally cashed again in the big Sunday Hold’Em tourney. It had been […]

  • Richard Lewis at Tarrytown Music Hall

    I’ve been a long-time fan of Richard Lewis. In addition to loving his standup act, both Lois and I were fans of Anything But Love for its entire run. Last night was the first time that either of us has seen him perform live. He had an unannounced opening act (which I’ll cover […]

  • Google Chrome First Impressions

    Before I begin, for the record, I love Firefox, and continue to use it as my primary browser. I also have IE7 and Safari installed (I’m running Windows XP Pro). Of course, I had to try Google Chrome, even though it wasn’t touted as being ready for Prime Time just yet. After some […]

  • PowerNotebooks Laptops Ordered

    I’ve written about my laptop a number of times. Separately, I’ve written about Windows XP, Vista, Linux and what I might choose when buying a new laptop. This morning, I ordered two identical laptops from PowerNotebooks.com, one for me and one for Lois. Here is the link to the specific model: PowerPro I […]

  • mp3tunes is a joke

    mp3tunes.com sounded like a good idea when I first heard of it. I found out about it a while ago, in a round-a-bout manner. I discovered a music streaming application, that could be widgetized on a blog, and they were promoting mp3tunes as a place to store your mp3’s so that you could […]

  • Vista SP1

    If you stop by here regularly, then you know I’ve railed about Windows Vista at least once. Aside from hearing tons of complaints from friends and strangers, I had the displeasure of using my previously mentioned computer ministry to set up a new Dell computer for my cul-de-sac neighbor’s mom last year. At […]
