Cafepress Store

I added some new items to my store. I am the only one who has ever purchased anything from my store. Heh.

No More Periods, Period?

Wired.com reports: “A new drug being developed would eliminate menstruation altogether, while still allowing women to get pregnant. Another drug would eliminate both periods and pregnancy.” [link via Swallowing Tacks]

ApeCrap

I am sad to report that the ‘new’ Planet of the Apes is possibly one of the top five worst movies I’ve ever seen. The audience was phenomenal. The special effects were mind-blowing. The acting was honestly ‘not that bad’. The audience was phenomenal. The theater sound system and projection was state-of-the-art. The trailers were […]

Shift

Hey! I got my first two (free) issues of Shift magazine last week. I read them on the plane to and from Miami. The ‘corporate’ web site is pretty busy – far too many bells and whistles for my taste. It betrays the ultimate hep-ness-osity of the magazine. The print version is excellent though. I […]

BlogTracking

MIT’s Media lab is experimenting with a new tool that tracks the links that are posted in online weblogs/diaries. If successful, Blogdex could provide a very valuable resource for the average information seeker as Blogs are flat out where it’s at. via Davenetics

Two Football Players Die at Practice

University of Florida freshman fullback Eraste Autin died on Wednesday, July 25, after collapsing from heat stroke on his way back to the locker room after practice. And a football player on the Minnesota Vikings, too?

Blue Monday

Blue Monday – Orgy Yeah, I know: This is a cover of an awesome, classic New Order song. I really like this version, too, though. I’m a sucker for covers. My favorite part of a live concert is getting to hear a band cover something.

LA

I just have to do this: Flew in from Miami Beach BOAC Didn’t get to bed last night … Actually it was National Airlines, but it’s still great to be back in LA.

Miami, Part II

Grrr … and, even though I can access GreyMatter to post, for some reason the folks at AT&T have determined that davidgagne.net is a porn site or something. The Public Phone 2000i won’t let me view my own page. So. I guess I’ll go read Rolling Stone. The paper, handheld, old-fashioned version. In a chair. […]

Miami

I am standing at an AT&T Public Phone 2000i in the Miami International Airport. I’ve got several hours to kill here and I thought I’d check my eMail. Unfortunately, although I love the redesign at Hotmail.com, I can’t figure out how to retrieve my POP mail. It’s very frustrating. I doubt I have any interesting […]

Toilet Paper Directional Preference

I think that this proposal is just crazy. The one on the left is far superior, both aesthetically and ergonomically. Let’s just hope she’s never made Queen. Who would want to live in a totalitarian tp state?

Visual Basic Code to Send Outlook eMail

Yeah. So. Gotta little bug here. Can anyone tell me how to force Outlook to send a message formatted as plain text instead of in the user’s default format in VB? The only information I can find is about the OlEditorType, but that is apparently read-only unless I force the mail object to have HTMLBody […]

I just learned that most of the photographs at Ocean State Adventures were taken by my dad! Way to go, dad!

Miss Cleo

Yes! This snip from NextDraft makes me very happy: Missouri has filed lawsuits against the psychic Miss Cleo (if you have ever watched television, you know her) charging her with consumer fraud. According to the state’s attorney general: ‘Miss Cleo should have seen this coming. It doesn’t take a crystal ball to realize that ripping […]

Instant Karma

Instant Karma – John Lennon “We all shine on.” Don’t we? This is one of the best songs ever.
