Treo 650 with Keyboard Originally uploaded by eidolon. This past weekend while at the National Cohousing Conference, Cat and I shared a bit of geekery and picked up a palmOne IR Wireless keyboard so that we could take notes in various panels right into our Treos. After installing the .PRC file into both units, theRead More
At one point this weekend I wandered through the lobby and past a room that just had a single baby grand piano in it. I had an urge to just go in and -play-. Just to work some rhythms out, quiet music for myself and if someone wanted to listen, that would be okay. IRead More
Back from phase 2 of my whirlwind tour of east coast points of interest. Zach and I just got in from attending the National Cohousing Conference in Chapel Hill, NC. Cat is staying an additional day to attend the board meeting on Monday, then returns tomorrow night. We had a great time, flying down ThursdayRead More
Saturday finally saw us have a break in the heat, and we had a very comfortable, sunny day. The temperatures were down around normal, and the humidity had slacked off a fair amount. I took my shift checking folks in down at the front gate, which was a good opportunity to get some quiet time.Read More
(Written saturday on the Treo – typos may abound…) All set up! If I had my druthers I think i’d have preferred something less than 85+ degrees and 90% humidity with occasional rain squalls for setup day, but ya takes what yas can git. Parking last night in town was tricky. Where do you parkRead More
P7130027.JPG Originally uploaded by eidolon. Yesterday (the 12th) I set out on a somewhat ambitious journey. A driving trip from Boston to Pittsburgh for a 4 day camping excursion with blk. The occasion is a private party held out in the hills outside Pittsburgh. After much hemming and hawing, and taking into account my generalRead More
From Foxs Syrups Website (Granted, the website is 4 years out of date, but still!) : U-bet Plastic Bottle at November 01, 2002 We are pleased to announce that we are changing our packaging to a NEW plastic squeeze bottle. After 75+ years in glass, we have decided that in order to better serve you,Read More
Last night the a-forementioned movie night was had at Chez Geek. This was my first real chance to show off the new monitor setup. We chose Chronicles of Narnia for presentation – so the kids could attend, and the grownups would have something to enjoy as well.
Not sure where I first found this link, but: “Hey, listen. I’m a veteran. This is a V.A. facility. I’m sitting here not talking to anybody, having a cup of coffee. I’m not protesting and you can’t kick me out.” “You’ll either go or we’ll arrest you,” Adkins threatened. Smacks of the whole “Free SpeechRead More
Obscene Liberty Originally uploaded by Lightning Rose. This statue is real. This is not photoshopped. This horror is a 75′ tall product of the World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church. They have a website about the ”Status of Liberation Through Christ”. They have erected this obscenity in Memphis, TN, against the objections of people in theRead More
So, with this splufty new monitor, I’d say I have about 2/3rds of a ‘home theater’. As such, why not have a movie viewing night? To keep things family centric, I’m planning on doing Chronicles of Narnia starting around 6:30, preceeded by a well-selected cartoon. Families, kids, popcorn all welcome. We’ll most likely follow itRead More
Apparently LiveJournal / SixApart have collectively decided that external RSS feeds aren’t worth fixing. Rather that continue arguing against this idiocy, with help from Lisa and MTLJPost, I’ve set up Planet Geek to crosspost new entries both on the blog and directly into LJ. How does that impact you, dear reader? Not in the slightestRead More
Daveskiing Originally uploaded by eidolon. A quicky snapshot of skiing today on the lake. Thanks to Gennie for taking the pic!
It’ll come as no surprise to anyone that I’m someone who enjoys alone-time. On that Myers-Briggs thing? The ‘I’ gets pegged and glows orange. Others may argue, and possibly rightfully so, that I’m one of the most extroverted introverts around, but when it comes to “What do I want really?” – frequently it’s “I wantRead More
