Eye Opening Vacation

Rory posted yesterday about his vacation revelation. It was interesting reading for me as I had the same experience last summer while taking two weeks off to visit Charleston, SC. I checked my email twice while I was away - just to make sure...


Recent experiences with mapping software for web use

About a month ago I was doing some R&D for a project we were contemplating taking on. Our portion of the project was to design the front end of a kiosk application for a large national retail company. They wanted to do a pilot of a couple of dozen...


USPS Package Delivery: How do I hate thee... let me count the ways.

Amazon has a shipping facility in Lexington, KY. I live about 25 miles north of Cincinnati, OH. It is about a 2-hour drive from Lexington to Cincinnati. Cincinnati is the main post office in this area and all mail emanates from there and is then...


Back in the saddle

Wow, it has been a while since I've sat down in front of this FreeTextBox interface and written anything. No, Ben Kanpurn, I have not given up on my blog. I'll use the same excuse as everyone else who ignores their blog for a short period - I was...


An introduction to my crazy ass dog, Brutus

I thought I'd share this little clip of my dog, Brutus, entertaining us. He is a clown and he will keep it going as long as someone is laughing. He just ain't right - but we love him anyway. I apologize for the cruddy clip, but for some strange...

Comment to Paul Wilson's post "Getting Ready for my UI Mapper Release"

Note to self: check this out later - setting up CS for single blog

Dan, make sure that you come back and re-read this article once Community Server has been officially released. Looks like some good info. (via RoudyBob) Hey, I know the CS RC is out, but have I mentioned before that I'm not one for messing around...


Nerd Adventures with a Human Female in Sin City

I watched Rory and the crew's Caesar's 24/7 episode last night on A&E and it was hilarious. It was worth wading through the other 53 minutes of crap and commercials to see their piece. Freakin' hilarious. I've you've ever been out with a bunch of...
