  • Humongous snowflakes

    I have NEVER seen such big snowflakes. They are the size of tree leaves. They are big enough to box with them!

  • The great Google / TitanFusion.net experiment

    I have decided to conduct an experiment on my website TitanFusion.net. A very involved experiment.  I am going to see how many aspects TitanFusion.net: email, blogs, sub-sites, files, feeds, exc. can be hosted and served by Google services, be they independent or part of Google Apps.

  • RIP Steve Jobs 1955 – 2011

    Steve Jobs passed away today at age 56. He was born on February 24, 1955. It really sucks. It is discouraging, but we have a lot to remember him by. Thank you Steve for changing our lives, for making them better.

  • Open my ears? That is dangerous!

    Here is another golden statement from my son. Today, on the way to my wife’s parents, Alexandar was making lots of noise in the car with his milk cup by banking it agains his seat. After Amanda counted him out she took his cup, at which point he started to cry and complain. I told […]

You know … like the pocket on your pants. Over the years I have seen women use their bras to store money, notes, business cards. Lately, though, […]

    I lease multiple Linux servers. One of them has multiple hard drives installed in it. After asking the data center to reload the OS on it, the staff did not mounted the second drive. Surprisingly it is extremely easy for anyone with a root access to mount a hard drive on a Linux-based system. Here […]

  • Blade Runner

    I’m streaming Blade Runner from Netflix right now. I’ve seen the movie in its entirety before, but I don’t think I have ever actually sat down and watched the movie. I suppose I will finally know what exactly this film is about. Here is a line I found pretty funny at the time when Leon […]

    I love my new summer office. The birds’ chirping sounds are so relaxing. Fresh air, warm breeze, nice shade. Fantastic!
