A bandwidth-intense peek at the last few days. Though not pictured, the weekend got off to a nice start at a happy hour organized by a coworker. You simply can’t go wrong with a margarita on the rocks, a plate of fried pickles, and reuniting with some folks you haven’t seen in a while (and […]

It astounds me how often my coworkers and I are treated like children. Fact: My time card is due at the end of the week. While the specifics of when are presently point of contention, the general time frame has never changed. Fact: A day before my time card is due, I receive an email […]

Three Chords Instrumental

For the past couple days, the guys of Fools & Horses have been in the studio again. This video (the first six seconds NSFW, thanks Tim) is from their first day back. The cabin in the mountains of Virginia may be secluded, but I wouldn’t consider it a retreat by any means. Even without lyrics, […]

I’m not prone to losing things but recent events have gotten me thinking about other objects that have gone missing. Evil Empire, an album by Rage Against the Machine.

A few days before January 1st of 2010, I was migrated to Microsoft Office 2007. So far, I’m not too impressed. After a few days usage, I’ve found Office 2007 to be softer looking, slower performing, and visually bluer than Office 2003. It appears like Microsoft attempted to do away with all things sharp, both […]

Assaulted in Charm City

Two of my friends were assaulted in Baltimore last night, while waiting for crowds to disperse from section 324 of 1st Mariner Arena. An older guy walked up a few rows, then turned towards us and spit in my friend’s face from 3-4 feet away. He muttered something like “that’s for you spilling stuff on […]
