  2. Just had to change to another set of headphones mid-song because of lack of high-end balance in the first set. Concerned this is an early symptom of audiophilia nervosa.

  3. Photo Wall

    Photo Wall

    It took 10 years, but I’ve finally put something up on the wall of my home office. I ordered a bunch of prints in different sizes from Fracture and threw them up there. Logos from my companies, a few family photos, photos from vacations and golf courses; and I’m getting ready to order another batch…

  4. Reached the point in the project where the code is in my brain long after I close the computer. Even tried chasing it away with a Manhattan.

  5. I know I’ve said this before but it makes me nervous when things work the first time after a big code change/refactoring.

It’s very common for people to make less-than-generous assumptions of others when they have very little information about them. Once you…

  10. Just Start

    Over the last few months I’ve been playing Flow Free, a popular iOS game (there’s an Android version too). It’s my type of game, a casual puzzle game that I can pick up and put down whenever I want. I’ve also found the game to be an interesting metaphor. Too often I see smart people…

  11. Finally emailed Hover to start the process of transferring my domains to them. The reminders in my podcasts did make a difference.

  12. Lessons From Inbox Zero

    I’m a month in on INBOX ZERO. It’s been a good experience. I spend less time staring at a list of things I need to deal with at some point and am only looking at new things that need attention. I like not having a backlog of things sitting on my shoulders weighing me down.…
