  • Wireless XBOX 360 + DirecTV
    November 22nd, 2008 @ 9:04 pm PST

    If you want to connect your XBOX 360 to your home’s wireless network, you could spend about $85 on an official XBOX 360 Wireless Network Adapter. But that will only get you one network port. I’ve got DirecTV and have been meaning to connect that to the network, too, so I can access the OnDemand […]

    September 18th, 2008 @ 2:13 pm PST

    I love TinyURL! and have been using it for years and years. For the first time today I scrolled down the page a bit, by accident, and saw that you can create a TinyURL! bookmarklet. Trés radical.

    I get a lot of spam. A lot. No, really. I get a lot of spam. I am directly or indirectly connected to the whois / registration of dozens and dozens of sites. I get a.lot.of.spam. So. Tonight I happen to notice a piece of spam directed towards a URL that I own that nobody […]

  • Book Learning
    July 22nd, 2003 @ 5:00 pm PST

    “Google is beginning to have a subtle, but noticeable effect on research. More and more scholarly publications are putting up their issues in PDF format, which Google indexes as though they were traditional Web pages. But almost no one is publishing entire books online in PDF form. So, when you’re doing research online, Google is […]

    When I want to register a domain name, I go to It might cost a few dollars more – and I’m talkin’ like, $2 more – than some of the bargain basement registrars, but you cannot beat their customer service, administration, and control panel options. I’ve used them for years and highly recommend their […]

  • Port Problems
    August 2nd, 2001 @ 3:58 pm PST

    For some reason I cannot FTP or SMTP to from my office. I know you’re asking, “David, what does that mean?” It means I can’t upload anything to my site from work (no new songs!), I can’t send eMail through my account from work, and I can’t modify any of the files at […]

  • Miami, Part II
    July 27th, 2001 @ 4:20 am PST

    Grrr … and, even though I can access GreyMatter to post, for some reason the folks at AT&T have determined that 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. […]

    It drives me nuts that you need to enter the www to get to the University of Florida Home Page. Just typing won’t get you there.

    The available domain name of the week from is a handy and fun little web resource. I remember visiting the site early last year and seeing some great names. This is a site for the people who complain that all the good www names are taken. This week’s available name is Check ’em […]

  • domain name expired
    February 11th, 2001 @ 2:52 pm PST

    So. My domain name ( registration expired on February 9. Rather than do something silly, like send me an eMail to warn me that it was about to expire, the folks at dotster simply closed my home on the ‘net and replaced it with that Renewal Notice. As far as I can tell, I got […]

  • Saint of the Internet
    February 6th, 2001 @ 9:02 am PST

    Pope John Paul II is considering naming Saint Isidore of Seville the patron saint of Internet users and computer programmers. The Vatican first went online in 1996 with its Web site, which it has used to publish thousands of Catholic Church documents and Papal speeches. The site is powered by three host computers named […]
