After this past election season, I lost a ton of interest in Social Media. Everyone suddenly became judge, jury and executioner; not really realizing that the more we argue about dumb concepts, the less likely we are to progress. So I distanced myself from them…I’m more of a consumer than I am a creator. So..
If you’re looking for an easy read with lots of sci-fi action, I’d recommend the first one (of two) I read a few months ago called Daemon by Daniel Suarez. It’s about a computer genius who sets up an unalterable chain of events to begin occurring when news of his death hits the media. Very..
I kinda let the blog fall by the wayside about a year ago, shortly after having moved to Oakland…I started it kind of as an experiment to see how one goes about ‘blogging’ and learned what I needed to learn when I needed to learn it, so it was good in that regard. Since my..
Been around for a while now but I’m sure somebody out there hasn’t seen it yet. Hilarious. Typical Crews.
Forwarded to me by one of my programmer friends…source: http://stilldrinking.org/programming-sucks Every friend I have with a job that involves picking up something heavier than a laptop more than twice a week eventually finds a way to slip something like this into conversation: “Bro,1 you don’t work hard. I just worked a 4700-hour week digging a tunnel under..
I dunno why but for some reason I can’t stop listening to this album: I mean…I never really cared for Triple 6 Mafia, but for some reason I’m really feelin this album. It’s a guilty pleasure. Makes me think of those clubs you find yourself in at 3am with zero lighting except something pink and..
I know…it’s been a while since I’ve taken the time to update my blog…it’s just…there’s this nu thang goin on in my life… For real though…I’m just busy. The move to Oakland seems to have shortened my available time for messing around on the internet. But I’ll try to keep updating it. I swear.
Welp, we’ve moved into the new place and it’s definitely a step in the right direction. Where we were before, it was perpetually cloudy and often cold…it was an awesome place in theory, but in reality it wasn’t all we had hoped it would be. So our new place is a bit more lively…definitely a..
As I’m sure you’ve heard, an international communications service was picked up by Facebook the other day for $16,000,000,000. 50 Employees. Pretty impressive. I didn’t know much about whatsapp (I still don’t), but I took a look at their blog and read a really cool post called ‘Why we don’t sell ads’. If you get..
The other day one of the few sites I built (from scratch) debuted on/during the superbowl. Analytics showed it received about 100k hits over 2 days…pretty cool (although not much compared to other sites around here). Victory!
So…a good friend of mine got ripped off for a pretty hefty amount through a PayPal transaction the other day. Only thing I’d say as a warning – never ever ever EVER send your payments as ‘Friends and Family’ unless you have ample reason to believe that this person is not going to screw you..
I watched a few really good movies over the past couple of weeks and they all seem to follow a common theme: black stuggle in America: – The Butler – 12 Years a Slave – Fruitvale Station Although I was pretty engrossed in all 3, I would highly recommend The Butler and Fruitvale Station…Fruitvale probably..
Anyone out there seen these well-dressed gentlemen from the Congo? I’ve seen the pics years ago but never really knew they were a ‘thing’…pretty cool video:
I just set up a scraper that is pulling through all of my eBay data, and it’s working on every browser except Chrome – these are the console errors I’m receiving: Any idea what I can do to get my shop working on Chrome?
Just found out they have all 4 full seasons of Dinosaurs on Netflix. I’m gonna be locked away for a few weeks while I finish it up. Great show.
This movie actually looks pretty good…
Just about every Sunday, Toni and I make our way over to the Richmond Farmers Market around 3rd and Clement. The other day as we were walking towards Clement, we came across a nice little surprise for someone (it says “Please clean up your dogs poop” and there’s a big gross pile of dog excrement..
I’ve never really played darts before, but the other day a friend and I were drinking at Yanceys Saloon over by 9th and Irving and decided to give it a shot. My first throw: My next throw (that’s my friends middle finger for reference): i proceeded to throw a total of 5 bullseyes over..
I stumbled across the site a few weeks ago and have been following it daily…it’s amazing to me how many of these virtual currencies actually ‘exist’…seems there’s money to be made here I’m just not entirely sure where… http://coinmarketcap.com/
Bitcoin has been on the mind lately…mostly because of the feverish pace with which it’s climbed over the past month or two…pure madness. That being said, I made my first BTC purchase earlier this week and boy was it easy. The steps I had to go through: – I had to set up a virtual..

Easily one of my favorite albums of all time, Doggystyle changed the game. I’ve come across 4 or 5 articles out there talking about the 20th anniversary of Doggystyle and learned a lot of cool stuff I didn’t really know. And then a friend of mine sent me a mixtape hosted by Snoop walking the..
This is cool…using broken iPhone parts to make useful objects. http://mashable.com/2013/11/24/kickstarter-recycle-iphones/
So…as I was updating some files for a couple of my sites, my domains (including this one) were firewalled at work. Kind of annoying but I understand. My updates might not be as frequent going forward. The week was a long one – I got food poisoning on Wednesday night and felt about 11 lbs…
Say goodbye to the George Costanza wallet…this looks awesome and something I could fully stand behind. The biblical connotations aren’t so great…I think I’ll stick with the Lord of the Rings reference that I just made up… https://onlycoin.com
I did a bit of research on which program was the best for running windows scripts on my Mac and couldn’t really decide on which one to go with. For some reason, I hate just spending money on software unless I’ve used it a bit and know what it entails… Anyway, a colleague told me..
The older I get, the more I notice how fast time goes by. More things seem to be going through my head and less things seem to be getting accomplished. It’s basically…work…relax…sleep….work…relax….sleep. I don’t seem to have much time for my other interests, anymore, and I can’t imagine having kids will help that out at..
I caught the tail end of one episode of this show and it looked really interesting. It looked like these people were traveling all over the world trying to find alternative cures to stubborn ailments and the only one that seemed to work was tongue acupuncture. As a fan of acupuncture, this gave me a..
I love the look of these and have owned probably 7 pairs of III’s…I’ve just never been able to hold onto them for long. I just don’t like them on feet. Not very comfy IMO. I bought this pair for $140, wore them twice, then sold them for $200 a couple of weeks later. Great..
