Thanksgiving dinner came off well. The first one we’ve cooked, really, in years. Mostly we’ve always gone to other houses in the family and just help out there. This time, it was Nathan, Leah, Kirstin, and Gus. The turkey came out reasonably well, the gravy worked nicely, and the whole spread was WAY more foodContinue reading “Mmmmm. full.”
Riding the bus home from work yesterday, the driver came on and said: “The administrative rules forbid me from wishing every one of you a Happy Thanksgiving, instead suggesting ‘Happy Holidays’ or something else equally lame. However, if you wish my a Happy Thanksgiving, I may return the comment in kind.” heh. Happy Thanksgiving!
Nope, not literally – this is a mac geek thing. Got a copy of Mac OS X Tiger in a nutshell today, so in between baking, mixing, and stiring I took a look. I was actually disappointed not to see a reference to textutil in there, seeing as it came out new in Tiger. EvenContinue reading “Tiger in a nutshell”
The pre-thanksgiving cooking has commenced! Tonight is ginger bread and pumpkin pie prep. Gotta bake those pumpkins down first, although it looks like we won’t be getting 6 pies out of this batch. I think the real pie baking will take place tomorrow morning (letting the pumpkin cool is critical), and I may have toContinue reading “ginger bread and pumpkin pie”
Mac command line stuff – did you know about textutil? I didn’t – not until I read the article at OReilly this evening. That’s a cool program! (I already knew about tidy and opendiff)
Normally I ignore the microsoft hype engine when it comes to that latest “open standard” that Microsoft is proposing, but this one caught my eye: SSE. It’s really a pretty simple spec (GOOD!) on how to detail attributes for adding onto the basic RSS bits with some detail about what was added, when, and someContinue reading “ESS spec for sync and share”
I’m watching through the Evening at Adler, and I just caught Wolf’s anti-tag on Perforce. I never had any particular bitch with Perforce myself except the cost, so that was really intriguing to me. So while I was hunting for Wolf’s email address to write him and ask him what his bitch with Perforce wasContinue reading “Bitchen about Perforce”
If today gets any more surreal, I’m going to scream.
Although I’m not hip on getting an XBox 360 immediately (I want to wait and see with this one, and the games aren’t that compelling to me), this Google Maps remix of where inventory resides nearby is pretty cool.
I was doing some walking last night and watched Stargate Atlantis off netflix. Hey, you know – it was science fiction, and it gives me something to do while I’m walking. As far as episodic science fiction goes, well – it’s really not very good. Of course I’m comparing it to Firefly… But that justContinue reading “Stargate Atlantis, not so good.”
