I found the following CDs: 1. Astrud Gilberto – Jazz round midnight 2. Antonio Carlos Jobim – Wave 3. Thievery Corporation – The […]

The Red Queen

“Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. ” – The Red Queen – Alice in Wonderland My slightly wild fiance just got her hair cut and colored. It’s red. And short. Did I mention it’s very red? Yeah. It sure is. My first glimpse of the new Justine was a grainy […]

I’m a big fan of the FireFox web browser. For those of you who don’t use it, I’ve found it more stable, secure, and user friendly than Internet Explorer. You should give it a try.It’s a great piece of software for many reasons, but one of the most interesting is its extensions. FireFox supports tiny […]

A little blast from the past with the Katrina image above. NOAA has a bleak picture painted for our friends in the North Atlantic states this summer. I feel it is my duty to pass along some tips for hurricane preparation, given that I actually lived through the largest hurricane evactuation in US history. Here […]

Google Notebook

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Productivity|Web

If you haven’t checked out Google Notebook, you should check it out. It’s a pretty cool plugin for browsers (it works in Fire Fox, which I use most often and Internet Explorer as well) that allows you to copy and paste text and photos from web pages and save them for later. This would be […]

The conference is being run by some famous web gurus and will feature topics such as design, usability, eye-tracking studies, project planning & implementation, rich content, etc. I’m pretty excited about the trip and the chance to nerd-it-up with some fellow […]

  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)
