Where Should We Move?
As the spring semester’s beginning approaches, so does graduation in May. Ann Margaret and I would like to move away from Texas after graduation (maybe not immediately) and I’d like to throw out the net to see what my friends on The Internet™ have to say. To give you an idea, some of the places we like right now are Denver, Chicago, Portland, and Seattle, but we’ve not visited...
So, Christmas was pretty awesome. Here’s a rundown. What I Got TiVo When I found out TiVo would work with my HD antenna, I had to have one. I put the Airport Express I got for my birthday to work as an Internet connection for the TiVo so I didn’t have to run Ethernet cable through the attic and drop the wall. Looking forward to getting all my season passes set up and telling it...

Titans rout Steelers to earn AFC's top seed,... →
I am a Steelers fan, and I don’t worry about this loss. Here are two reasons why. Mike Tomlin is a smart coach. He knows that they are likely to face the Titans again in January. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to tip your hand to an opponent you are going to see again when it really counts. A conservative game plan, especially on defense, goes a long way here. What, did you think...

Getting Real About "Productivity"
I just finished reading Getting Real, a book about running a software company, creating a product that people actually use and pay for. 37Signals have been doing it for a while and doing it well, so it makes sense to listen to them. But that’s not why you called. Or maybe it was. Who knows? What was I saying? Oh, right. Thanks. There are some central themes to Getting Real that, as the...

Buying the entire bookshelf at PragProg and reading CIMGF is great, but if you haven’t opened XCode or TextMate in weeks, stop kidding yourself.

How to Stay Alive in a Terrorized Hotel →
clint: Four hotels I’ve stayed in recently have now been blown up, so count me an expert on where not to stay. But I’ve also thought a bit about how to stay alive in hotels - I’m sort of the TSA of hotel security, except that, unlike the TSA, I recognize that most of my advice is utterly without value. The other option, apparently, is to find out where this guy stays and stay far, far away.
via clint: I laughed and laughed. The scene is surprisingly long — Simpsons make fun of Apple & Steve Jobs (via shivi2004) Clip is from Hulu because Youtube pulled it. Sorry non-US visitors.
