I haven’t used this word today and decided I would. Thanks, as always, to Lewis Carroll for this bon mot. It’s a good word and always at home on the memo line of a cheque. Sometimes 13 is good. Or 12. I’ll have to consult with Jose on that. For those who do not want to […]

If you are squeamish, you will wish to skip this paragraph — the links are horrifically graphic. This report is available on AP, CBS, and many other news services and it’s absolutely disgusting and appalling. NewsBlaze and CBS .

Randomness Part Eight

What a weekend. The Panthers won Friday and Sunday giving us a total of four wins in a row. Yay, Panthers. Next up, I’m sitting in Thomas’ car on Sunday and he’s driving.

In My Ongoing CD Ripping Project

In a previous post or two, I’ve commented on this project. As of right now, I’m at 20.5 days of continuous music, representing over 7400 songs and counting.

Apple’s Steve Jobs Blasts DRM

Today, Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Computer and iTunes and co-creator of all the cool stuff that represents has said that DRM sucks. Yes, he did.

More On Music and the 1 Terabyte Hard Drive

In my previous post entitled Music and the 1 Terabyte Hard Drive, I detailed my plans for this monumental project of ripping all my CDs into iTunes. It’s been a much larger task than I thought but here’s an update. I am on the letter “S” today (remember, I’m only in my Pop/Rock library) and […]
