2009 suzuki v-strom 650

18-Jun-08

it looks like a tiger. grrr. while not exactly my style, I dig it. especially like the blacked out exhaust cover. I will have to paint mine… Update June 24 ’08: I researched and outlined the differences between the 2008 and 2009 v-strom – there are only a few. Update June 30 ’08: I painted […]

babelfish

28-May-08

for years an’ years, my go-to for translations has always been babelfish.altavista.com … today, on my way to look up “va te faire foutre” I am redirected! oh my, no more Altavista. when did babelfish.altavista.com become babelfish.yahoo.com? according to ye’ ol’ wikipedia: 1.) “…AltaVista (part of Yahoo! since May 9, 2008)…” 2.) “After a long […]

continuing image post day – monumental milage

25-Apr-08

hit 186,000 miles on my ’91 benz which I purchased at 133K. I have yet *knocks very-hard on wood* to have any major repairs. on my ~75 mile a day commute I use about ~2.3 gal. of gas. not too shabby for a 17 year old car.

Bruce Springsteen does MS (internal) Vista SP1 music video

16-Apr-08

WARNING: painful to watch, worse to hear; bleeding of the ears may occur… this is the kind of overproduced trash that makes me cringe at the possibility of microsoft absorbing yahoo… (I can’t imagine yahoo allowing something as awful as this vid – not to mention Y!’s “ecosystem” is entirely contrary to microsoft’s) – it’s […]

bike shopping – final contender: Suzuki DL650 V-Strom ABS

13-Apr-08

update: I purchased this bike! Needs (and what the V-Strom offers): – comfort: upright riding position, feet flat on the ground at stop, no major fatigue from just cruising (fairly hard to judge from intarweb reviews and a brief sit on it at the dealership) – great mpg: would love 60+ (concensus seems to be […]

oh yes, more Futurama nearly here, cometh June

19-Mar-08

just two painstakingly long months to go til the June 24th release. [the new film is the]…most tentacle-packed Futurama epic, space itself rips open, revealing a gateway to another universe. What lies beyond is a mix of horror and love as the Planet Express crew encounters a repulsive, planet-sized monster with romantic intentions. The second […]

South Dakota – the only state without hate groups

19-Mar-08

as observed in this Hate Rises – washingtonpost article (technically, RI also has “none”, but that ruins my title, and honestly how accurate can this really be?)

blackberry pearl II (8130) review

18-Mar-08

in short: it is awesome, even without the BB data plan – sprint has been unable to add to my account for me. (note: sprint CS on the whole, sucks ass. however, once in awhile you will get through to some great people; really depends on the time of day.) I have a pre-existing data […]

cause & effect – the traffic jam shockwave

12-Mar-08

…They [Researchers from several Japanese Universities] asked drivers to cruise steadily at 30 kilometres per hour, and at first the traffic moved freely. But small fluctuations soon appeared in distances between cars, breaking down the free flow, until finally a cluster of several vehicles was forced to stop completely for a moment. That cluster spread […]

4 day work weeks – sign me up

05-Mar-08

the guys over at 37 signals experimented with the 4 day work week, 3 day weekend last summer and have since made it the standard. I think this snippet sums up the logistics of their thinking: Three-day weekends mean people come back extra refreshed on Monday. Three-day weekends mean people come back happier on Monday. […]

IE8 to play nice with web standards

04-Mar-08

in a blog update by the Internet Explorer 8 dev team, it has been stated that the microsoft standards “set” in IE7 will be abandoned in favor of more widely outside-MS standards set by those at w3 and the webstandards group. In light of the Interoperability Principles, as well as feedback from the community, we’re […]
