Another one bytes the dust.

Sad. Judged after a half hour. I guess you really just can't be honest
in an interview.

Add this company to my never work for list.

No big loss? For both parties.

I had one company contact me years after turning me down. I recall
that I really would have liked to work there.

Now I wanted to tell them to shove it, but I don't recall if I even
responded to them.

Disney cruise: Animator's Palate


This was the coolest place to eat on the Disney cruise. Everything
starts out in black and white and by the end of dining experience the
place is full of color!

Too much consumption

I was messing with a Roku this evening. What a novel idea, but I was
also kind of shocked to be reminded how much content there was to

How many hours were used to produce all of this? What might be worse
is how many hours someone might use to consume a lot of it.

To me the iPad, as a consumption device, represented in part, an
aiding factor, what is wrong with America.

In full discloser, I watched Waiting for Superman. Documentaries like
that make you think and right now I'm thinking there is too much junk
being consumed.

Nice day in Alexandria, VA - Masonic temple

scary, but it was quite the opposite.

transaction from a distance."

Just bought a Huge Capacity Solar Charger and Battery from thinkgeek.com


I sure hop it works better than the cheap ones I bought. They only
lasted for about a month.

Ride to shore: Panama.

Is iOS 5 just for the iPhone? Can I get it on this 2nd Gen. iPod Touch? If so, how?

Random Panama picture.


Not really sure what this picture is of, but it was in the Panama folder.

How do you move pictures from one Facebook album to another?

A cue ball is like a Frenchman. Hit it just right and you can get English out of it.


It was a joke I heard on the cruise.

Bright, hot day at an old fort in Columbia.

People and Public Transportation

Homer said Public Transportation is for losers. In major metropolises,
that includes real people too I suppose.

Anyway, I was trying to get to a seat And lost control of my backpack
a bit and was trying not to hit this guy.

Well, not sure what happened but the guy was mad. I apologized but he
kept it up for a while.

I had to suppress a smile. Lucky for me or him I could not hear what
he said. I love noise reduction head phones.

Jungle cruise. Costa Rica


This guy was trying to cool down. We watched him for a while. When he
got tired of us, he climbed down into the water.

Night shot test in Alexandria


This camera phone is not too bad.

Another nice evening in Alexandria, VA


It looked like it would rain this morning, but as you can see it
cleared up pretty well.

Long Tail

I should have just Googled the term "long tail". Found a good Wikipedia article.

Social search? Who needs it anyway?


Returning to the cruise ship.

Heard a segment of my first exposure to a Lady Gaga song. "Maybe years earlier, I might have liked her stuff."

Bing image of Oregon


Did you see today's image? If not, here is a screen shot of the Bing app.

Test post

I just hooked up Posterous to Google Buzz and Blogger. I should have done that a long time ago. Oh well. Live and learn? Live anyway.


I have never been to Annapolis in the day time. :) The owner of the company I worked for years ago lived in Annapolis and we had 2 Christmas parties there.

Stayed at the Marriott by the water and was whisked off every morning.

It has been a long time.
