Mobile Browsers and Google Analytics

This is fairly mundane geek talk so if you’re not into this type of stuff, feel free to curse me and then head over to Cute Overload or something. Anyhoo, during a recent email list discussion (I KNOW! THEY STILL EXIST!!!) at my current job the question came up about developing a multipurpose web presence […]

The beginning of day 2 at SXSW

If anyone follows me on Twitter or Facebook then they know that I started off my morning first by hating the fact that drinking the night before was an almost painful experience and second that I went to work out at 5:30 in the morning while there was nobody in the hotel gym. Oh, and […]

A Few Changes Here & There

As we get Smashy.net up and running again you’ll see that we’re making a few changes. So far we’ve added two new categories: Food and Sports. We’ve also added author based RSS feeds. Why did we do that? Simple, we’re giving contributors the ability to cross post their content to any other site(s) that they […]

The EyeWriter

There are things in this world that make you very, very humble. I take for granted that I can walk around and do all of the monotonous and stupid things that I do – drive, wash dishes, eat a burrito, brush my hair, point at an angry looking deer peering at me through the bushes. […]

And we’re back…sort of.

As you may well have realized, smashy.net has been incommunicado for almost a year. It has been quite the experience. The original site used bblog. According to their site: NEWSFLASH: bBlog is dead! Long live bBlog! After a number of years of the bBlog project, with the last couple inactive, it is time to call […]

And My Site Is Back Up :)

Thank you for your patience during this station break… I always wondered what news anchors did during commercial breaks. If the clip doesn’t play, click the HQ button and then press play. Updating this was a pain because I thought I forgot to do a dump of the blog database and switched nameservers. Then I […]

Puzzy Farts

I like this ‘advert’ of sorts for Google Latitude.. It takes a nice simple video of Google employees and then gives the user a nice little pay off at the end. In my case, it was just a reminder of bodily functions: Google reminds us: Puzzy Farts. I went through and I was going to […]

From YouTube: Samsung SSD Awesomeness

“[They] took 24 256GB Samsung MLC SSD’s and put them in RAID to make this awesome computer!” 😯 Holy moly that rocks. I mean, seriously. With the amount of stuff that I do that requires rendering, encoding, etc. that would be amazing. I wonder how much that would cost? Think of the possibilities! I would […]

The Dual Purpose McGruff Shirt

When Angela and I went to the Spy Museum a few weekends ago we mulled around downtown DC for a bit as well. After lunch at the DC Chophouse, we decided to head home. As we were walking back to the parking garage we passed the ‘Crime & Punishment Museum’. The Crime & Punishment Museum […]

Robo-Q, the mini robot

Robots have become an integral part of our society. They build cars, act as a sentry (South Korean | Metal Storm AWDS), Even though they are just a little ways away from becoming the ass kicking, bone crunching Terminators or Transformers they still manage to capture our imagination. We’ve seen movies like Metropolis, Blade Runner, […]

Keeping Up With the Memes

I realize that as I grow older my interests will become more and more narrow. It’s like that with every generation, isn’t it? It is the fundamental reason why old people hate the way young people dress, listen to music and behave. Ultimately I’ll be an old curmudgeon, sitting in my rocking chair at the […]

Tech Blast From The Past

I was at home this weekend with Angela trying to sort out my media collection on our network. Wow. We’ve got quite a collection of…uh…stuff. It was a nice stroll down memory lane going through some of this. Especially when I hit the movie “Hackers”. It was interesting reliving some of the techno babble of […]

iPhone blogging

Wow. I’m currently sitting here at my home office at around 10:30pm. Just as a heads up – I’m posting this from an iPhone app that I downloaded from Apple’s App Store. I think it is pretty amazing that I could do this using this interface. It saves a ton of transmission problems More soon! […]

The Aviary Phoenix image editor

Adobe Flash is starting to have to find different ways to leverage itself in the new web world. It used to be that you could create web pages with roll overs and simple effects and, more likely than not, it would require the Flash plug-in. However, the new crop of javascript libraries and various other […]

The iPhone – The Kid Gloves Come Off

I have a problem with my iPhone. A BIG problem. It doesn’t work. Ok, it does work. Pretty decently, I must say. But the problem I’ve run into is that the weather is getting cold.  And I like listening to my iPhone on the Metro. But I’ve noticed that the cold weather and the iPhone […]

Telephones: Too Advanced For Their Own Good

I lament the demise of the good ol’ fashioned telephone. So much so that I’ve set my ring tone to be ‘old fashion phone’. I really miss the old phones and I sometimes think that all this technology we’re using today has sort of taken away some of what made the telephone such a grand […]
