For a number of years, I have been on the Worship Quote of the Week e-mailing list, and have found a lot of the quotes to be edifying and helpful. (More)

I have seen the Christmas stuff come out right after Thanksgiving, and last year I saw some stuff just after Halloween, but this year has them all beat. (More)

I hadn't ever gotten a call from a domain scammer before, but today I got my first one. He wanted a fax number to send some sort of notification to. Since I know my domain isn't going to expire for a year, and I was pretty sure that neither my registrar nor my DNS host had asked these guys to call me, I quizzed him some, but he wasn't really able to answer any questions.

Just to be sure, I called my registrar, and they confirmed that these guys are probably some sort of scammer. After searching further on the Internet, I see that lots of people have had trouble with them.
It appears to be a company in Panama, so presumably there isn't anything I can do to stop them, other than warn people here.

I tried to re-activate our prepaid phone, but Cingular no longer supports TDMA phones, which is an older standard, but I hadn't realized that GSM had taken over that much. Our cell phone that we use regularly is also TDMA, but the sales guy said that it should last a while, as long as we don't cancel the plan.

It costs $30 for a new phone, and $15 for the minutes, and he has to ship it, the local offices only have $80 phones, so it isn't worth anything for this weekend's bike trips.

We get a phone call every day between 8:55 and 9:00AM. They are always hangups, but today, I finally answered quick enough to actually get a person. It was the American Center for Law and Justice, and they refused to remove my phone number from their list.

I emailed directly, I don't suppose he actually reads his own mail, but maybe he will do something about it.

Their member services say I am not on their lists, so their telemarketers must be calling, as if it makes any difference to me whether they are paying a person in the same building as them to call me, or if they hired an outside firm to call me.

I need to look up the number to the FCC - they fined MCI $400 (or maybe more - I got a check for $400) for bothering me in college.

I am planning on a couple bike trips in the next couple days, and figured I would write them down, one, in case I ever want to do them again, I will be able to find the route easier, and two, perhaps others will follow in my tire tracks. (More)

I was listening to "One More Day" and thought I would write a bit about him and his songs.
I first heard David when he came to CMU, I think in 1996, shortly after being given a couple months to live by his doctor due a large tumor. The only song I remember from his first visit to Carnegie Mellon was, "If I Had Another", which he sang slightly differently live than recorded, but basically it is the same song. (More)

I was updating my list of quotes that I have given people, and I noticed that I have hit the $500/month mark for revenue (not profit), seems like a significant number!

It has been fun, though sometimes too much work - hopefully someday will able to just work on Lime Daley stuff, rather than a full-time job as well.

Bill linked to a new (at least to me) personality profile thingy. I haven't done the Meyers-Briggs test in a while, but I have consistently scored ESFP, and I generally like that assessment. One version of the test had a fairly long paragraph describing ESFP's, and it fit exactly. (I always remember that I am ESFP, because I am exactly opposite of Daniel, and somehow INTJ is easier to remember. (More)

(Originally read on the phone, Mother's Day, 2006)

Dear Mom,
I want to say some things to you and I thought it would be easier to write them in a letter because I am not very good with words and after all those years of getting me to write thank you notes, you know how hard it is for me to say, "Thank you".

I want to thank you for being my mom. (More)

On the GirlTalk blog, they've been posting tributes from daughters to mothers, and I thought I'd write one for my own mom. (More)

I was poking around on Slashdot, a site I used to read regularly, but then decided it was taking too much time. I found an article about Microsoft trying buy a portion of Yahoo, and apparently Yahoo rejected their offer. (More)

I read an interview of Dean Kamen recently. I first heard of him when he was demoing his Segway invention around the mall in our very own Concord (I don't know if I will ever be a Pittsburgher - still feel like a New Hampshirite), or possibly for USFirst, but he has been around a while - I think he said something about inventing things for 30 years. (More)

I guess Microsoft has decided they have cornered enough of the Anti-Spyware market to start charging for the tool to fix their insecure OS. Microsoft popped up a dialog offering to download the new version of the anti-spyware tools. Usually the upgrade doesn't pop-up a separate window, so I was suspicious. (More)
