While this place has been rather fallow, between my not tweeting and the feed from Twitter failing to work properly for a while, I’ve been working on new blogs. Not sure what will happen to this, which never had much … Continue reading
Rock drummers are like athletes, in terms of stamina and exertion.
Here is one list, in a format I find relatively pleasing. Here is another list in a format I find harder to follow, but which may be more complete, and gives numerical ranges (I’d have bolded those section headers to … Continue reading
Found this list interesting in my travels.
Have you gotten more telephone averse with age? This is something I’ve written about before myself, or close to it, in reference to phone phobia. Even in times of no creditors, my heart leaps up into the roof of my … Continue reading
Too funny, Bill Gates in a Tandy ad.
Good post on rules of thumb, some of which are familiar to me. I didn’t know the interruptions thing had a number attached, but I knew it was bad. I can seldom do much of substance without being free of … Continue reading
Credit Card Ghosts, including somr interesting links to factoids and statistics about credi cards.
Apart from cost and fussiness, depending on model, I actually like the compact florescents, and what they did to the electric bill. At least, until the electric usage we were getting billed for nearly doubled for no apparent reason. One … Continue reading
On an amusingly related not to my consulting fees post the other day, here’s a post on how to sell overpriced services. The dressing part feels tongue in cheek, even though it’s tried and true advice I first saw decades … Continue reading
This is mainly a local interest Massachusetts link, received in e-mail, to an Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields site. It’s of particular interest for the first one on the page, as my grandfather worked for George Clark and lived for a … Continue reading
As I always say, The Constituion Means What It Says. I think Scalia is my new favorite. Wait. Did I have a favorite before? Trouble is, it means what it says about takings, too. Poor Kelo.
Who’s who and reunion for the famous picture of Microsoft’s early employees.
Via Dan, this is an amusing, lengthy article in which Bill Gates e-mails complaints about Microsoft end user experience to his own staff, which apparently was something he did regularly. I have to agree in general with Dan about Vista.
I already knew some of the harm salt reduction can cause, but this is a great post laying it all out in detail, using the relevant studies and science and history. Just a tiny taste of it: The lowest sodium … Continue reading
Apparently text messages are private from employers, per the court.
Fascinating, cool stuff. The toy specialist on Antiques Road Show would love it.
This is exactly my view of it.
A contrarian view, which is worh considering, if not 100% right.
And how it is and is not newfangled, one thing is should not be is overly supervised, edited, stilted, and smothered.
Face lift advice for improving your resume.
How you can work with 12 different types of clients.
I think I linked this elsewhere previously, but it’s still in my “to be linked” bookmarks and is interesting. Apparently there’s end of the world insurance that factors into investing, defaults, and expectations.
Is Twitter really for the tragically connected? Is it a time waster or great tool? Time may tell. The contrarian view reminds me of what I always say about blogs, that blogs aren’t anything crazy special or new. They are … Continue reading
Twitter may matter, but weeks after I bookmarked this, it’s still struggling with downtime. They’ve made headway, but part of the reason it’s been so much better is the number of people giving up or taking a “wait until it’s … Continue reading
BusinessWeek explains why.
Read the Missing Manual, that is. Very cool, IIRC noted via Web Worker Daily recently.
Geek Crafts is just plain a cool and unusual site.
