Touring Around San Francisco

Here are some of the pics from San Francisco in no particular order.

Okay, this one was before the trip. I finally cut off my hair. I feel free. There was a video of the process but unlike the old days of the smaller audience I think it is no longer appropriate.

image

there was this magazine on the plane with furniture in Nice, France that make syour whole house into a rock garden. I want it so bad.
image

image

(e:matthew) really did not like flying. The two hours of severe turbulence didn't help. I was liek the plane was going to rip apart. My neck hurt from the stress of thinking I was gonna die plus the jarring motion of it whipping around. We didn't even have service or sound for like 2 hours.

image
image

People bring their dogs and cats on planes in their backpacks nowadays. As an alergy sufferere this makes me mad.
image

I thought Dave Doyle would like this. I know he likes messed up signs.
image

This one too.

On Saturday (e:hodown) arrived

Here is the goldengate bridge

These boat houses cost more than double the cost of the mansion.

At the conference today I was scared that an earthquake would crash down the part I was in.

A delorian maybe?
image

I love Aroma Tea Shop at 302 6th avenue

image
image

image

(e:hodown) already opened up a restaurant here.
image

Lombard street is twisty
image

Do you think the workers really get the $1 surcharge per plate? No where else had one.

This is the Palace of Fine Arts. I felt at home being a master of fine arts.

Web Design World

Well day one took us through the CSS you'd learn in intro to web design. Hopefully, something more exciting will be on the plate for tommorow. This woman in front of me asked the man next to her what a 'div' is.

It's nice to find out most of the choices (e:enknot) and I have made are also backed by other industry professionals.

The food was tasty. I even got my own personal size chocolate cake. Somehow a pigeon got into the conference. I fed it some cookies.

These dolls are so damn freaky.

ruby on rails

This has become a ruby in rails promtion event. which is fine with me. The speaker just went off how hard php is to maintain because it's all speghetti code. The way he talked about it, it seemed like the only php code he saw was code that hobby programmers wrote for php3.

Woman1: this is crazy. It used to be an event that promoted microsoft. Didn't he see how many peole raised their hand for .net

woman2: well, I am going to try ruby if it's the future.

woman1: I don' think microsoft will support it. All our servers are microsoft, and it's too expensive to switch.

hahaha

So I made it

I am at the san fran web design world conference now despite freaking out about thinking I was enrolled n the wrong connference.

They just asked developers what they are using. Hands went up and percentages you would expect for microsoft's .net, php,and java technology. What surprised me that only like two people raised their hands for rails. I was totally surprised.

Did you guys know tthat less than 5% of people publish more than once a week on their blogs?

Jake Gyllenhaal and Squeeling Pigs

Our (e:lilho) leave all her gossip magazines at our house. My favorite quote from one is this quote from Jake Gyllenhaal.. Who enjoys a pig being slaughtered. Is he being sarcastic?

Making Changes

I have made all these board sweeping changes to the site code as I have been adapting it for another major project in the last week. There is still a lot more old clutter I want to get rid of, but it is very scary working on it a few days before I will have no computer for a week. I just hope that my device will be able to save me in a pinch.

I mean I think it is all good but there is only so much testing one human can do in a day.

Windows, first day of spring

I can't tell you how much the nokia N800 has enhanced my life. I like to think of it as my magic window into the interworld. It is very 'just press' remember that (e:jacob)

I love my window
image

I love how it so seamlessly integrates with my menagerie of exotic electronics. Unfortunately, I lost my fullsize bluetooth keyboard. I have no idea how that is even possible.

Tonight was the BETA awards at the Buffalo convention center. The video presentation at the event was inane. They try and make it funny by making fun of buffalo but the story lines were so silly. I would rather see videos about new technology from and in buffalo than wonder, "what if the anchor bar founded buffalo scrotum snacks instead of wings." I swear that was a real video.

My boss' boss won the best executive award! During diner, she also told me that she "licensed" surebert to Algonquin Studios I wonder if I will get some sort of something out of it for the years of work I put into it?

At least the food was great.
image

I saw Jamie Oneill from Canisus, it was nice to see him. I am so over that part of my life now. Thank god everything changed. I think I might have ended up a big loser.

Ironically, Canisius actually had the nerve to write and ask me for money today.
image

So the part everyone cares about - the pics in no special order as the cam was missing for so long.

The yummy bento box at kunis on lexington.
image

A nice house on summer
image

There are just no windows near the washington market.
image

No open windows.
image

Are windows not allowed behind washington market.
image

They don't like windows
image

I wonder why Wegman's moved the blood pressure machine behind bars at night. Were people abusing it?
image

One of these things is not like the other.
image

I like this door on summer.
image

The rest of the pic from the door.
image

I want to buy this house next. Maybe if I cash in the other two?
image

This house looks so misplaced but it's cute.
image

Yummy udon noodles

Not PC for PC's Sake

A letter to an editor:
I doubt this will make it through the email filter. I am sorry about all the inappropriate words in this email but we are trying to create an inappropriate word list.

We cannot find a list of obvious words turns out in the forums we only block "shit" and "fuck". Del suggested the words which used to be banned from broadcast television.

Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker and Tits.

I have a feeling there are many more words that are going to be inappropriate for this site as it is sponsored by a corporation and aimed at kids but I am uncomfortable being in charge of producing the list.

We probably will want to block not just swear words but also harassing terms like slut, fag and nigger, etc. Perhaps once it is complete it should become a policy. Please forward me a list of other words we want blocked out when you can get to it.

Also how to you want them blocked out. Replaced as stars? Or do you want them replaced on a word/phrase specific basis. E.g. "holy shit" becomes "holy cow" and "fuck" becomes "darn", etc as "holy ****" might as well just say "holy shit." If we want them replaced as specific terms then I need the replacement terms in the list.

The nokia n73

My camera is gone. I am not saying anyone stole it but it left the party

In my quest for a smaller, more hi res mobile phone to match my new internet appliance, I think I found the perfect phone with a Carl Zeiss lens. Having lived in Jena, I can It has a Carl Zeiss lens on a 3mp camera. Having lived in jena, I can appreciate what that means. The n800 automagically connects to the internet via my phone.Now I just need a small phone.

Here is the review

Check out this pic taken with the 3mp camera on the n73. Click on it for the large size.
