Christmas Presents – business cards
Yesterday we celebrated Christmas. It was at our house and it was great. It was just us, the kids and Amanda‘s parents, aunt and uncle. The food was great, so was the company and the time we spend together. I received an awesome present – my first ever business cards. What made them awesome was […]
Being sanitary. … I guess that’s the end of that.
Yesterday I was at the toilet at work. A coworker came in, did his business in one of the stalls and simply walked out. No washing hand or at the least pretend to do so, like some of my other co-worker. Yes, I can tell the difference. When you turn on and off the water […]
Verizon rep – being a long time customer is definitely important, but….
I just got off the phone with a Verizon Wireless representative. I was inquiring about upgrading my phone and what kind of deal they could offer me. I had to revert back to a 5 year old phone due to a recent mishap with the mobile phone I was actively using. The deal they could […]
The finger plus camera equals douchebaggery.
This morning I came across this picture of Francisco Dao (founder of StrategyandPerformance.com), at the TechCrunch August Capital Party, giving the finger to the camera. There used to be a time when I found this to be funny. I used to do it myself a lot. I guess it was a comical way to show […]
Fireworks! Oh no, not again!
The idiot morons in my neighborhood are already starting with the fireworks. WTF?! It’s only July 1st! There are 3 days left before I have to endure the random and unnecessary thumping of fireworks. Which, the previously mentions idiots, last year were setting off randomly throughout the night for a month after July 4th. When […]
I’m working here!!
I am working on features and services for DomainVentory, which seems to be taking too long to become a public web site. I blame it on all of my freelance and home projects, and day job. Which are not necessarily bad, because I do get compensated well. But any ways. For some reason whenever I’m […]
Server scalability and Oxbury Publishing.
Currently Hive Minds Hosting is hosting Oxbury Publishing, including their other web properties. As the company business is growing, and it is expending in to customized reports and articles, delivered via newsletter, I know that the current server will not be able to handle the load of newsletter campaigns that are going to take place.

A Dad Moment – Reading in English
The following quote is from my desktop Dads calendar, given to me by my wife: A Dad Moment Ricky held his one-year-old daughter Emily in his lap. She was jabbering in baby talk as she flipped the pages of a picture book. Nearby, Ricky’s five-year-old son Tim said, “Dad, make her read it in English […]

For anyone that is not at the Barack Obama presidential inauguration or at home watching it, and you would like to watch it, you can do so here. I have embedded the UStream.TV live video stream below. The nice thing is that there is also audio, not just silent video. 07:48 AM Currently it is […]
Friendfeed and Twitter – is it time for an intervention?
I have decided to write this post sort of as an echo of Michael Arrington’s call for an intervention with Robert Scoble’s addiction to Freindfeed and Twitter, who has spend more than 2600 hours interacting with those services. I am rounding up from Michael’s post, because Robert states that he spend at least 7 hours […]
