Dimmer Upgrade for SPHS

We installed an ETC Sensor+ Touring Rack for Severna Park High School last weekend. It was the double wide touring model, half populated with dimmer modules. It was (obviously) less expensive than buying a full rack and it leaves adequate room for future expansion. The dimmer racks that were in use were getting rather antiquated […]

I’m done. It took four weeks of effort and the added pressure of an upcoming social engagement where I’ll be entertaining to get this project completed, but it’s finally done. There’s still a lot of boxes stacked, but they are in order and I had a good idea of what’s in them. I might venture […]

War, Suave with a Disappointing Ending

I saw War last night at Arundel Mills. As usual Jason Statham and company entertain with lots of martial arts and gun play. I don’t know if Hollywood just loves this guy or what, but Jet Li always portrays some badass — yet smooth and sleek — characters. He makes everything look easy. Fans of […]

And One for the Homies…

Word, homies. Because someone I know just finished the installment of Harry Potter. Butterbeer forties. Clever. I do enjoy a good action flick. Spare me the plot, bring on the martial arts. Off to see Jason Statham and Jet Li bust it up in War.

Farewall Catch-All, I Will Miss You

With a small degree of sadness, I removed the catch-all from my domain today. I’ve owned this domain for almost a decade. In all of that time I’ve had a catch-all. It was convenient and handy to be able to create email addresses at the drop of a hat. At Bob’s Electronics Depot and need […]

I Just Want to Live Here

The HOA drives me nuts. When they came through to inspect they suggested that I check for rot on the garage door. I did. No rot. A few weeks later I got an irrational nasty-gram from the HOA about the state of my place, saying that I hadn’t taken action and that if I didn’t […]

My throat has been bugging me for two weeks now. It isn’t even a cough most of the time, just a slight tickle in the back of my throat that won’t go away but it happily soothes with throat lozenges. It started a day or two after the FAH gig at Nottingham’s; I had been […]

I was in Atlantic City for a portion of the weekend, taking a much needed break from reality. Twelve of us ate out at The Trinity Pub and Carvery, located on The Pier at Caesars. Don’t bother. We had a reservation for twelve. They seated us at two tables pushed together in an L arrangement. […]

I the course of four hours I got hammered with backscatter from someone’s spam run. It looks like the batch included a lot of the recent PDF spam that is circulating. The mail server handled it pretty well, but I still had to clean out the 1,600 bounce emails this afternoon. If I weren’t insistent […]

It’s Business Time

I heard this on WRNR on the way back from Rivera’s. I nearly drove off the road I was laughing so hard. It’s a funky duo called Flight of the Conchords, who apparently have an HBO special these days (although I wouldn’t know since I don’t get HBO). Don’t watch on your iPhone while driving.

I am making progress in my office cleaning project. I tackled three boxes yesterday over a period of two hours. They were filled with a lot of loose items so it was slow going. Most of the things I’m finding now fall into the recycle or throwaway pile, although some of the bigger items are […]

This weekend was quite full and very enjoyable. Past tense, because I intend to spend another couple hours in my office today. It’s supposed to be in the 90′s today and the comforts of central air are just too tempting. That and I feel like I’ve done enough this weekend to warrant just laying about, […]

I’m going to see Fools & Horses at Nottingham’s (Flash) on Friday night. They’re playing at O’Brien’s on Saturday night but I’m just not feeling DTA this weekend. Columbia is closer to home anyways. Nottingham’s isn’t my favorite and this isn’t my weekend to party but I still think I deserve to get out and […]

We Need More Arists Like Sandi Thom

I remember the first time I heard Sandi Thom singing her song “I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker” on WRNR several months back. She was a refreshing change from some of the garbage that I find while surfing my radio dial. The tune was simple and elegant. I turned the volume way up. I […]

I was quoted in today’s issue of Express. For those of you outside the DC metro area, Express is a free daily mini-paper published by the Washington Post. It has sudoku, crosswords, and enough news for metro riders to get the general idea of what’s happening in the world in four stops or less. I […]
