Yay TiVo! A friend of mine turned me onto this lil gadget a while ago and I shunned it for a long while because I figured “Got a VCR, why bother”. That comment alone could get me stoned by the nearest UberGeek, but even so, I defend the comment! At least I would have… but I don’t because I was wrong: TiVo is worth it. Not only from a “pause” live TV bit, but from an ease of recording thing too.

This is a local rant, but I’m pretty certain that it is a “the left hand doesn’t know that there’s a right hand working against him and so the feet get screwed” case in it’s simplest form. Well, that might over simplify it, but it’s still pretty close to the situation here.

What’s been on my CD player later? What about the MP3 players, is probably a better question. I warn you the I have an eclectic taste in music – Lately there’s been a lot of The Goo Goo Dolls… also some of The Calling. Not to mention Eve 6. For some unknown reason I’ve been listening to Kenny Chesney – seems to be a soothing thing. To counteract that, I’ve rediscovered The Offspring and Green Day. I seem to pick up music from time to time – if I pick up anything good, I’ll post it here.
Why? Well why not? In the last 29 years, I’ve witnessed some outlandishly bone-headed things happen right before my very eyes. I’ve seen governments fall, billionaires rise, and a lot of people just existing on horizontal planes of society. Who am I? I’m a programmer, first and foremost. I believe that logic is the basis of making decisions in a world where logic is rarely given a second thought while making decisions. I’m the guy that will stand up in a sales meeting to leave, because I usually think they’re kidding when being pitched a new product. I’m the type of person that will can find humor in anything and laugh at nothing, yet stupidity in most things will cause an Episode. So what can you expect here? If I knew that, I’d have posted a table of contents… I figure I’ll start with some things that catch my fancy and go from there. Oh, and thanks for stopping by!
No, that’s not a typo – this is GeekStuffs. Stuff is an important and generic enough word where it needs a specific plural – I cite “foodstuffs” from 1984 as example. Anyway, this is a tribute to CityDesk. They made this kickass blogging tool that lets me do all this typing. One I got the format setup to how I like it, they just let me drop in new articles. Some neat stuff that. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks. Um, so thanks.
This is the MagnaArt studio… at least where most of the stuff is drawn. Don’t get used to it because the owners of this studio are moving soon…
