Pink For October

Since I’m heading out on a boat for a week, I thought I’d stick this up early. It isn’t exactly pink, but I’ve been too busy to do my own theme, so why would I think I could tweak this one to be a real pink?

Anyway, why is it pink? October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer has affected both my wife and my families. My sister is currently undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer (I should have gone teal for September, sorry).

Feeling neglected

It’s been way too long, Internets. There once was a time when we were pretty tight, no? It doesn’t seem that long ago at all that we would tell each other everything, spend ridiculous amounts of time together, laugh at people falling down and cry at chick flicks.

Yes, Internets, I’ve missed you sorely. Let’s try to get together soon, please. My first order of business will be to revive the site on which I’m writing now. I’ve been silent for so long now that there is much to say. The starting point, I guess, should be putting a voice to the thoughts in my noggin. At some point, though, you seriously could use some polish. Seriously? You’re letting me, a designer, use a (cough) theme!? There is clearly something wrong with this picture.

Open Letter to Engadget

Dear Engadget,

While I didn’t attend CES 2008, I almost feel like I ate, slept and drank on the show floor, thanks to your RSS feed. Thanks for helping me save some cash, really, but gee golly am I dizzy. I saw some estimates of some 20,000 new products being launched at CES this year. I lost count of posts on your site somewhere around eleventy-billion. Do you think you could have narrowed your selection down to maybe just 10,000 or so rather than filling my feed reader with all 20,000? I know, I don’t have to read them all, but c’mon. I may have to sue for the cost of the medical care to heal my carpal tunnel I’ve developed from having to scroll through all those posts.
