So if you’ve been around long enough, you know about my 10 day juice fasts , eating cabbage for 7 days and other ridiculous antics. Well, instead of a fast, I’m doing a feast. A raw food feast. For 30 days. Join me won’t you!?
From the time I started messing around on the computer (late 90s) I’ve had a blog of some sort. I’ve been all over the map; from Xanga to Greymatter to MovableType to Wordpress to a home brew Coldfusion CMS to Tumblr back to Coldfusion and now to Ruby on Rails.
I finally made time to jailbreak the ATV2. The Apple TV is now the central hub (sort of) of my media center. I can play Netflix (pretty much every day), rent movies from the Apple Store (maybe once every month or two) and now, stream media over the network using XBMC (every day, baby!)
So I’ve not been terribly happy with my Samsung TVs. A year or so back, I had some power related issue with our 32" Samsung TV (not the ln40a550p3f I’m talking about here, which is a 42"). Like a dufus I took it in to have it fixed and paid close to $200. Well, same thing happened to my 42" and I decided to fix it myself.
A week or so back I signed up for the Google Chrome OS Cr-48 pilot program, today I found one on my doorstep!
A web developer by day, a geek by night; I spend a great deal of time at a computer, sitting on my lazy derrière. It's time to do something about that!
Sarah is the chief gadget buyer for yours truly. I think she does it because she gets tired of hearing me lust after them. The Fitbit was no exception, I just had to have it. I'm really pleased with it so far!
Got a pair of Vibram Five Fingers (thanks to my lovely wife). After wearing them for a couple weeks I have to say, I love them. Not just love them, love them love them.
Did some quick surgery on one of the iMacs this morning. Since this is the equivalent to performing open heart surgery on your kid, I thought I'd snap a few quick pics.
Having cancelled our cable service and giving back all of the expensive HD DVRs, I needed a way to record OTA tv shows like, ahem, SURVIVOR!
I was dealing with an error recently while trying to connect to my Apple TV via my Ubuntu box. As per usual I'm blogging this so I don't forget the solution, and my hopes that out of the hundreds of million internet users, one may find my site and receive joy upon finding this solution. </sarcasm>
I like my Apple TV. I like it even more with Boxee installed on it. I like it even more than that with an external drive plugged into the back of my Apple TV. And lastly, I like being able to access said drive with ease.
I'm a sharing guy, lets face it. I'd leave it as that, but this opening paragraph always looks better with more content in it. So let me say, you're going to love my personal roundup of social bookmarklets, love them love them love them love them.
Over a year ago I wrote a post where I talked about some nasty chemicals in shaving cream (part of my going green series). In that article I mentioned some of the products I use. Tonight I ran around with my phone and shot all of my cosmetic type items. Without further ado…
I'm a fan of RSS feeds. I don't subscribe to this notion that feeds are outdated and dying. Twitter and Facebook don't cut it for me, the information just flows too quickly. Having said that, I am using a couple programs to read feeds and you just have to know about it.
I've been using DropBox for a few months, but not for anything really cool, until now. It occurred to me (finally, I'm slow, I know) that I could use DropBox to sync settings of programs I use on both of my machines.
I'm at a point in my life where there are so many things going on at one time, plus I'm lazy, I need help. I ran across a timely Mashable article that featured 20+ Mac Apps to increase your productivity. I decided to try one out.
Since starting my workout regimine I've been frequenting the Mid Rivers Mall Vitamin World store. I have received some really good service at the store and wanted to write a letter to their corporate office to make sure they knew about it.
You may or may not have noticed, but recently I took my blog on a short trip to tumblrland. After 6 weeks on a different platform I'm back to my home brew CMS. I thought I'd share my thoughts on the whole trip.
My addiction to tea didn’t start until the winter months. That means I’m just now learning how to make the perfect cup of iced tea. I’d like to share my formula; let’s enjoy iced tea together. Mmkay?
Not sure if I’m just a total doofus or if my googling skills were just off but I had a heck of a time figuring out how to get the new iPhone 3.0 beta 3 installed on my iPhone today. Here’s how I did it.
I was sitting here at my desk working (on the Mac) when the Helios screensaver on my Ubuntu box went off. I thought, huh, that’d make a cool wallpaper for my iPhone.
Jack is about to turn 1, man the time has just cruised by. We encouraged him to make his own party invitations. Here’s a video of the whole process.
If you haven’t heard yet, Whrrl is a storytelling application for the web and mobile phone. It lets users share their events as they unfold. Think of BrightKite only way better.
Jack has been taking steps here and there lately. Now I think it’s pretty safe to say he’s fully walking. Check out this video from today!
I’ve got it bad, like bad bad. Having completely kicked coffee during my juice fast I began drinking tea. I went from knowing nothing about tea to measuring loose leaf tea, getting the right temperature water and keeping track of steeping times for that perfect cup of tea. I’m searching for tea podcasts, reading tea blogs and, yeah.
It’s that time of year again, juice fast. I like to do a good juice fast at least once a year to get a nice base, clean out the ole system. (although I don’t recall doing one last year). It’s a great way to rid your body of all of the extra toxins, it’s sort of like clearing out old cookies from your browser.
I had some questions on the Youtube thumbnail getter project I did for fun a few days back so I wanted to post the code. Take it, use it, do whatever you want with it, just don’t blame me if it breaks the internets. :-)
In short, nothing. There is no santa, get the message out to all of those kids out there. To help, I made this very special website.
