My reaction was “because they own it… because they fucking OWN IT.” Duh. End of discussion. “Stakeholders”? That’s always been utter bull.
Had a rare interlude of TV available without kids and not needing/wanting to do laundry, dishes, etc., which led me to discover Atlas Shrugged Part 1 was on Netflix. So I watched it again. Went to great lengths to see … Continue reading
Except it still seems a little weird having Atlas Shrugged updated to be set in modern times, and the characters don’t look much like my mental images. Reardon, to whom I most relate, comes closest. I’m overdue for a reread, … Continue reading
Continued from and explained in Link Dump 1. Schoolhouse Barack Eggless batter for deep fried shrimp (works nicely for chicken, came out just like Chinese chicken fingers but that Henry can eat, moved from this to lighter tempura style) It’s … Continue reading
One problem we’ve had lately is exactly this dead zone, which you can see as a sharp drop in the 30s before the steadier line upward. You have to click the chart to see a bigger version. And basically if … Continue reading
Life may be like a box of chocolates, but Flow is like a good cup of coffee. Great post about a concept I’ve talked about before, which is central to some of the types of work I do, and not … Continue reading

Let’s see if I can sneak in a quick post around my daycare duties. They (and by “they” I mean Henry) tend to know the difference between my fingers hitting the keys for anything substantive and not, so I can … Continue reading
The job I have totally not blogged about as intended is planning to keep me beyond seasonal. I am “reliable and a hard worker.” I’d been wanting to post about how cool it is, in terms of logistics, handling and … Continue reading
I’ve spent much of the night not asleep, and ended up perusing some old material here and there. I wondered whether I would get different results on some of the quiz thingies. Here are some of them. In the first … Continue reading
John Hawkins did a flash poll, in which I participated, on the bailout. Interesting results, more skewed than I had expected. The last question, though, looks like people answered based not on where they stood, but what they thought public … Continue reading
I have updated the domains for sale post with the links to the auctions that didn’t have links available yet at the time.
I put several domains I probably can’t afford to renew and may never use up for 7 day auction at very low minimum bids. The ones I just did haven’t registered in the system to have links yet, so I … Continue reading
One of our favorite villains, Elliot Spitzer, may have helped create the AIG situation. Go Spitzer!

Originally posted August 3, 2007, now archived here. A while back I did a series of posts in “list plus elaboration” format, collecting my thoughts about as close as I could come to everything I had ever used for software … Continue reading
