  • 18th Anniversary of Blogging

    Here is my first blog post from 18 years ago, which makes it as old as a legal adult. Wow… Two Footballs I got started at a place called Diaryland. A friend, Lacey, had started using it. Back in those days, I was up for trying pretty much anything geeky friends were doing. Blogging was […]

  • Trash the Memories

    Been paying attention to the Backupify blog. Let’s disregard the distressing idea someone would bother to tweet during his (probably not her) wedding. Show me someone who can’t use Twitter. Probably from their mobile phone. Possibly while getting married…. After all, you wouldn’t want to permanently lose your wedding photos. Why wouldn’t the same logic apply to […]

  • Protected Post Password

    I imported all my LiveJournal posts here. Other than posting pictures to there from Flickr, I don’t really use LJ anymore. I rarely even read my friends’ blogs there. Too bad. I still have the teeshirt. Most of my LJ posts are protected. For this site, I’d rather have them set to private. So the […]

  • DDoS of Social Media

    Twitter, Facebook, LiveJournal and other sites all admitted to suffering from a DDoS attack. It seem to me the purpose of a Denial-of-Service attack (DoS) against a web site is to flood it with so much traffic the site becomes unusable. The DDoS is where multiple other computers are coordinated into launching the attack. All […]

  • Endings

    George R. R. Martin ranting about bad endings seems odd. “C’mon. Writing 101.” One of my bigger terrors is his end to A Song of Ice and Fire will be bad. A slightly bigger one is 3 years between books means the end is possibly a decade away and a sedentary lifestyle will prevent us from […]

  • Snap on LJ

    For a while I have noticed a little gray box pops up when I hover over some links in LiveJournal. Snap offers desktop agents, toolbars, and web server software. The only site annoying me is LiveJournal, so I think only they are using it. I probably won’t stop using the site because of this. However, […]

  • Typealyzer

    Purely for fun. Typealyzer gives a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator result from analyzing the text in your blog. I find it interesting this blog scored an INTJ and another ISTP. Prior to working in IT, I was always an INFP. Then I started getting INTP and lately INTJ. So the ISTP is a little odd to me. INTJ – […]

  • Cross-Seeding the Clouds

    There is a good post on backing up a PLE or really anything created in the cloud. The danger of working in the cloud is the site disappearing like Ma.gnolia recently. When the data is important, such as for teaching a class, this is huge. So the advice to have additional copies elsewhere is good. Is it the […]

  • Labels

    This started out as a comment to Adrian, but I it got so long it may as well be a post on its own…. The significance of racial labels is not in identifying the genetic makeup of individuals. The significance is in how the labels were used to enforce segregation long before the American Revolution. […]
