Twittering April 11th, 2008 @ 5:23 am PDT
I jumped on the Twitter bandwagon when someone mentioned it to me at SXSW2006, but immediately forgot all about it. I’m starting just now to pay attention to it. It’s nifty. What are you doing now?
Using Last Skipped in Smart Playlists April 10th, 2008 @ 10:24 am PDT
Bryan has posted an elaborate examination of the “Play Count” metric used by iTunes. I, too, use the “Play Count” metric as a component of many of my Smart Playlists, so I was interested in his research. I agree with one of the comments on his post, though, and think that iTunes really simply considers […]
Busting Vegas April 8th, 2008 @ 7:46 am PDT

I emptied the queue about seven hours ago, and when I got to the office this morning there were already almost 1500 comments, pingbacks, and trackbacks flagged as spam. Akismet has protected your site […]
Porter Valley Country Club April 1st, 2008 @ 6:15 am PDT
I played Porter Valley Country Club with Kelly on Sunday. I shot a 55 on the front nine and a 54 on the back nine for a 109, tied for my best round ever. As usual it took me nine or ten holes to get to the point where I could put all the pieces […]
