5 Browsers, 1 OS

This is one of the reasons I've switched from Windows to Mac: As a web developer, it's essential to be able to test a fresh page in as many browsers and environments as possible. Continue reading “5 Browsers, 1 OS” »

Amazon Kindle: amazing tech, but kinda ugly

Now this is innovation... Amazon has just done for books what Apple has done with the iPhone: innovate to a whole new level. This is the iPod for readers. You can download books, newspapers, blogs, and even your own content to a hand-held device that has an innovate new newspaper ink-like display, plenty of battery life to keep you going for a few days, is lighter ...

I’m in the NY Times today!

Well, I'm not, but one of my sites is! My sister just called me... turns out her husband, Hank, was reading the New York Times today and came upon an article that mentions RUNNER+! Holy cow... I'm so stoked! I seriously never thought anything I'd do would wind up in the NYT! I'm going to run out later and pick up a few copies of today's paper. It's in ...

Webcams that work with Mac OS X Leopard 10.5

Apple puts their tiny "iSight" webcam into the monitor of every computer they make, except for those of us who have purchased a Mac Mini or a Mac Pro and have opted for a non-Apple monitor solution. Personally, I'm rocking a 27" DELL Widescreen that does not have a built in camera. It has everything, but that! After much research and futzing around with the latest ...

Extreme holiday lighting

It's that time of year again, and Mel and I will be spending the next two weekends putting up lights outside our house. If you haven't visited my GriswoldHome.com website in a while, it's worth checking out. Traffic to it is dead during 10 months of the year. Magically, during November and December, traffic flourishes! One thing that always gets me in the ...

The Vegas

I headed off to Las Vegas for the SEMA Show this past Monday morning (4am!) and it has been a busy week. I flew home the afternoon on Halloween to spend time with my family, and currently I am doing some blogging at Truckblog to get some of the news and photos out from the past few days. I'll be flying back to Vegas in the morning to finish up the show Thursday ...

Soda, snacks, and iPods

I'm staying at the Las Vegas Hilton this week for the SEMA Show, and down by the elevators they have the most amazing vending machine for Apple fanboys... BOOM! It's an Apple vending machine. Chock full of iPods, cameras, headphones, cables, adapters... everything you might need in a pinch. They even have the latest toys, such as the iPod Nano, iPod Video, and iPod ...

Wanna go for a swim?

I finally (yes, I have been extremely busy!) got the chance to go outside today to check on the pool. Here's what I found: I cleaned it off, and the edges where the ash had built up on the tile wall. Hopefully the cleaner will do its job so we don't have to drain the pool and get it acid-washed again like we did after the Cedar Fire 4 years ago! Now that ...

Project Bank Shot for SEMA 2007

I just realized that I never showed my first major vehicle graphics project... probably because it took so long to do, and then I just got busy with a Ford trip to Michigan and the fires here in San Diego. Plus, I was scrambling last minute to get the plotter and the software to work so I could cut all of the vinyl for this monster truck. Well, here it is, in all ...

And You Can Too!

My sister got me hooked on watching the The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central when I was up in Seattle and while I hate politics in general, I found the show amusing because it does nothing but poke fun at politics. What follows Stewart's show is the Colbert Report. I got hooked on that show too. Recently Colbert announced he is running for President ...

San Diego Fires

OMG what a crazy few days. First, the fire started Sunday in East County and we kept a close watch on it, knowing that I had a Monday morning flight with Frozone to go to Michigan for a two-day Ford truck media event. We made the decision early Monday morning to go ahead with my trip, as it looked like the fire was going to avoid our neighborhood. Unfortunately ...
