Nebraska Football

For those who don’t know, I am a fan of Nebraska football. Why that should be when I went to Virginia Tech…? Well, there really isn’t a good reason except to say that I was inculcated early and often with Nebraska football from the time I was a toddler. 🙂

In this vein, I read […]


Well, with all the uproar around Playfair, I’ve decided to drop AAC as my format of choice and re-rip my 200 or so CDs to 256kbps mp3 instead. Not something to be undertaken lightly, but I’ve decided that it is unlikely I’ll buy an iPod anytime soon so it makes sense. Of course this will […]

Notepad++ and Filezilla

In the course of my Blog maintenance, I came across a couple of Windows apps (GPL’d of course) that are pretty great. One of them is called […]

iTunes and Pepsi and Hiroshima

I’ve taken to drinking the nasty crap that is Pepsi solely in order to win free iTunes songs…. So far I’ve won 4/8, which is way better than their supposed 1/3 chance. With these in hand I’ve bought two John Mayer songs, one Alanis Morrisette song and one Avril Lavigne song.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Ever seen this movie? If you weren’t drunk when you saw it then you probably thought it was fscked up. If you WERE drunk when you saw it (like me), then you KNOW it was fscked up. Only this movie could entice me to download Tom Jones’s song “She’s a Lady”… I have to think […]

I’m left wondering how the United States educational system could have left me so ignorant as to believe that Christopher Columbus discovered America. As you might be able to tell, I am sort of bitter that our history books continue to teach […]

Europe Trip

Since Christi and I pretty much had to stay inside this weekend we spent it prepping for all the traveling we will be doing soon. Between her little brother’s graduation, another trip to Japan for me, a conference in Vegas and our trip to Europe, we’re gonna be very busy!

So far while we are […]


Took Bella to get spayed today. Not a fun thing, but the spay and neuter people did a good job with her (it seems). We took her to a different place than our vet since Mom and Dad said that Cloud now associates her vet with that and hates going. This place was recommended by […]

Bella & Lost in Translation

Well, it’s been a couple of weeks, so I figured I’d write a brief something. I’m also putting up some pictures of Bella, our Bedlington terrier.

Last night Christi and I watched Lost in Translation. I hadn’t paid too much attention to it when it came out, except to watch as Bill Murray got […]
