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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The most fun since gamebooy in 1989

The party was fun, the parade was fun. My new internet appliance, th nokia n800 rocks. No device has impressed my so much since the first time I saw the first gameboy, which I bought with my paper route money back in 1989. What it lacks in phone conection it makes up for in screen and functionality.

I am writing this from under the covers listening to one of my favorite streaming radio stations over wifi. In a city like san francisco that will soon be blanketed in wifi, this wouuld be amazing. It is even smart enough to know when i leave my homes wifi connnection that it should try and connect to the internet via my phone. Now to just replace my phone with a tiny one. It can even reAd the memory cards from my phone and camera.

Reminders of a friend lost to asia

I think about (e:jesse) a lot. I don't know exactly what about him made me think about him but lots of little things remind me of him.

This product for example
. It looks like something I think he would design even the advertisement. Look at the etching on the connectors.

image

Also I bought the nokia n800 internet device. I have wanted one forever. Not because I don't have 15 other obile ways to connect to the net on the go but because this one runs linux and they give you the developent kit. Also it has the opera browser and flash 8.

Here is a pic from the net, I will put up my own pics when it arrives.

Now Accepting Applications

Okay, so I was looking up fag hag on wikipedia (WIKIPEDIA - fag hag) to see if there were any tips about getting a new one and learned that there are also fag stags - straight guys that have an affinity toward hanging out with gay guys. This is new to me, but not so new for (e:flacidness) who seems to have a million fag stags. I just never had a name for the before.

Here is Margaret Cho's take on the term fag hag

I also learned the term fruit fly, which is similar to fag hag. I like it better.
image

So the point of this journal. The reason it is an advantage for a gay guy to have a most beautiful straight girl "fruit fly" instead of a haggish one is that other gay guys, might mistake you for a straight guy with a hot girlfriend - thus increasing your desirability.

In return you feed the beautiful fruit fly's ego and everyone wins. Its like a perfect symbiotic relationship. What the freakin' hell a I going to do with (e:lilho) leaves town.

I know it's early but I am just putting it out there. I am now accepting applications for a new fruit fly for Fall 2007. I have a lot to offer. Benefits depend on previous experience. Extreme physical beauty and comprehensive experience with gossiping are both required as is free time and close proximity. Damn, I guess I am demanding.

Riding Sweaty

(e:lilho) says it's like the gym equivalent of riding dirty. She is also guilty of riding glossy and riding sticky. At least she says so.

(e:lilho) and I saw probably the hottest guy I have ever seen besides matt and terry at the gym. I got to see much more of him than she did as turned out his locker was right behind mine.

It is pouring so much right now and we are trapped at spot downtown. I am drinking a meal in a glass.
