Bag Man

Apparently Kickstarter has decided I fit the profile of someone who wants the perfect bag. They may not be wrong. One reason why I love winter is I can justify wearing a coat. My favorite coat has a gallon in pocket space. I can carry ALL THE CRAP. Phone, novel, notebook, pens, change, receipts, camera, chargers, headphones,… Continue reading Bag Man

Instead between Blackboard, VistaSWAT, and GeorgiaVIEW about… Continue reading Rock Eagle Debrief

(Even AWStats is better.) Analog is good enough. While at Bbworld, Nicole asked me about the hits to her wedding web site. She made… Continue reading Stats

Badge, Blackboard 9 will be the “NextGen” product we are… *cough* eagerly… *ahem* waiting to see. John Fontaine was in… Continue reading Bb 9 is NextGen?
