1 June 2007
I missed “abstemious” and “jejune.” Damnit.
What do you call 4’ thick walls? How about, “a good start?”
Graphing the Gallup data.
(Hint: it’s not the AMD.)

Just installed, works great. Oh my, look out, Twitter.

A paper on string theory uses a word from The Simpsons. (“A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man.” — Lisa Simpson.)
5 June 2007
Home of the drobo. Silly name, great idea.
6 June 2007
Jack, one of Colonial Williamsburg’s carriage horses, pauses for a close-up.
7 June 2007
On not keeping a schedule, lists, and productivity porn.
Using rsync, of course. What else?
Learn about counterfeiting, goods of the trades, wills, rare sheep, and kitchens.

“Somebody notify Greenpeace.”
10 June 2007
Good collection of collections. Meta-collecting, mmmm.

Why windows takes so long to load.
I don’t really talk a lot about my drive, because, you know, it’s boring.
But tonight was a doozy! Thunderstorms followed us the entire way home.
No, really. When I left at 6 I drove right into one. Stopped for dinner, back on the road at 7, get down past Quantico, blammo, right into a major storm.
7:45 pm, we’re still in the red:
It followed us the entire way down I-95.
A brief reprieve right outside of Richmond around 8:30, then right back into the red at 9:00:
Exciting stuff, I tell you! My headlights and windshield haven’t been this clean in months!
(P.S. The best part? It still hasn’t rained here. Just lots and lots of lightning.)

One of the better “hide your charger” hacks I’ve seen.
15 June 2007
Terminal and plist versions.
16 June 2007
I was really quite happy with how this series of shots turned out; the Tucker House always provides a nice striking background. (I think the second shot is my favorite for exactly this reason; the background is outstanding.)
And, you know, I’m there every week. So it’s not really out of my way.
This bird rooted around on the ground for a little while before moving up to the top of the fence. I didn’t know what he had in his mouth until after I viewed it on my computer.

Because my son loves horses, I am now able to identify most of the horses that pull Colonial Williamsburg’s carriages on sight. For example:
That’s Jack and Jill; I recognized them because Jack could stand to lose a few pounds. (And by a few, I mean a lot.)
Jack, of course, is usually in the pasture on DoG street, greedily taking handouts from the visitors. He looks much more dignified in this picture than when he’s snarfing grass from kids.

More Twitter Applescripts, this one for iTunes.

Glass surface, too. via Daring Fireball.

Rules governing the water use in our county. (Cheat sheet for me: W/F/Sun, before 9 and after 5)
‘”Maybe” is one option too many. As a best practice, we should dispense with it, just as we should replace five-star rating systems with four-star ones.’
Nine steps to turning around a company. Nice.
24 June 2007
Perhaps there’s no more fitting tribute to Stargate SG-1 ending ten years on the air than this clip, I’m stuck on a glacier with MacGyver!
(Via Gateworld’s Farewell to SG-1.)
