  • Blog Post: Ducks looking for work?

    Today on the way back from lunch, I had to do a double take as I walked by the building 4 lobby because there were ducks standing at the door, waiting to get in. “There are ducks at the door,” I said to the receptionist, thinking she must have noticed me walking backwards, and would want...
  • Blog Post: NPR: They got me!

    I had to run an errand this afternoon, and as I pulled out of the parking lot, a news story came on NPR talking about a US Post Office announcement about mobile zip codes. Modeled on the rulings that allowed people to take their phone numbers with them, the Assistant Postmaster General was quoted from...
  • Blog Post: Checking the weather

    Tomorrow I'm off to Las Vegas for a few days of winning the casino's money (well that's *my* dream anyway), so I decided to check the weather. It's going to be beautiful, of course, but check out these descriptions, they delighted me :) Someone had some fun making rules. Thursday...
  • Blog Post: Great writing advice

    I was checking out my referral logs, and found this wonderful piece on the Ten Mistakes Writers Don't See (But Can Easily Fix When They Do) via Jim Martin's blog . This one's a keeper.

  • Blog Post: CNet: Google and Social Networking

    Google tip-toed into the hot market of online social networks with the quiet launch of Orkut.com on Thursday, CNET News.com has learned.

  • Blog Post: Washington State Democratic Caucuses: Feb 7

    This year, the Democratic party in Washington is opting for a caucus rather than a primary. Caucuses require, in my opinion, much more commitment than voting. You show up, talk, listen to other people talk, move around into groups (hopefully of 15% or more), and vote. The caucus process here in Washington...
  • Blog Post: Bits and Pieces #1

    Mads Nissen from Oslo, Norway has a very cool .Text template, and interesting posts to boot! Jonathan Hodgson pointed me to an article he has written on Generating Thumbnail Images from PDF Documents using VB.Net Tommy wonders " I wonder why you have to restart IIS. Isn’t there a SharePoint “worker...
  • Blog Post: Netscan Queries

    Duncan posted about NETSCAN today; as it turns out, I was playing with it today, too. Microsoft Research is a cool place... and if you had any doubt, you only need to look at some of their publicly exposed data, such as the NETSCAN system. I pulled a description of the system from their site... The Netscan...

  • Blog Post: This is broken!

    Sean posts about thisisbroken.com . This site is one of the outlets for Mark Hurst , and I totally agree with Sean that it's important to understand what's broken. The posts are also really funny! Mark's main website is www.goodexperience.com , and he also has a newsletter that is generally a wealth...
  • Blog Post: Where's LJ?

    Someone asked why I haven't been posting to my blog lately, so I thought I'd make a quick post to say that I'm still here.  I haven't been posting for all the usual reasons, namely life (mostly) and work (a little) intruding into my blogging time, plus I've been feeling conflicted about...

    Intravenous doses of a synthetic component of good cholesterol reduced artery disease in just six weeks in a small study with startlingly big implications for treating the nation's No. 1 killer. ( MSNBC ) I heard about this story on NPR.  The discovery and news is pretty cool, but...

  • Blog Post: Blog To Do

    Figure out what the description box in BlogX is good for. Update my blogroll.  I should be able to export from Sharpreader. Do something about my categories.  This is what happens in Outlook, too.  I start off with grand plans for a few general categories, and the next...
  • Blog Post: Boggled

    It's been a long day.  The tension around deliverables for PDC builds, and sometimes clashes with the enthusiasm and passion that everyone has for what they are doing.  Things get said, people react, more things get said, feelings get hurt and frustrations build.  For my part I'm sorry...
