VoIP blues

2017-07-30T15:21:27-07:00

OK, so I'm canceling my Vonage subscription today. I wish my parents could cancel THEIR VoIP service and get some reliable phone lines. And if what I'm seeing about Skype is any indication, I won't be the only one going [...]

Wordsplosion

2017-10-07T18:34:24-07:00

I've got a real thing about words (surprise, surprise), and Wordsplosion has had me doing the ROTFL thing for the last half hour or so. Definitely worth a visit. BTW, the photo above is my own Wordsplosion-style entry. Mom and [...]

Visuality speaks

2017-07-30T15:22:41-07:00

If you wanna understand just how inadequate you are as a visual artist, go paint-your-plating with a bunch of graphic designers. Actually, that’s not quite fair: I had a LOT of fun. Group I’m contracting with right now was nice [...]

In moving color

2015-02-01T11:55:01-07:00

Check this out: heat-sensitive glass tile. I may be the last person in the world to hear about it. Mom sent over a newsclipping and I investigated a bit. The tile changes color according to temperature, so if it's in [...]

Wall of shame welcomes Verizon and Linksys

2017-07-30T15:14:56-07:00

As much as I love geeking out over gadgets, there are days when I long for pencil, tin can and string. Days like today. I’ve had Verizon FiOS, their high-speed fiberoptic network, for 14 months now. I know this because [...]

Virtual peephole

2017-07-30T15:23:30-07:00

Chatting with an old friend the other day, I mentioned a former colleague. “He’s now working at —, right?” “Nope. From what I hear he kinda went ballistic. He’s not there, anyway. Don’t know what he’s doing now.” When I [...]

What we sell vs. what they buy

2017-07-30T14:52:41-07:00

Doing a little market research for someone right now. Nothing fancy, just an informal Zoomerang survey: 10 questions sent out to about 3,000 customers, offering them a chance at a free lunch if they respond. Sent the questionnaire to the [...]
