  1. An Alternative to RTs on Twitter

    Twitter-SPAM is on the rise, and I include RTs (re-tweets) in the SPAM bucket. I made a snarky remark about this a couple days back – and sure enough, it got re-tweeted. To mix my metaphors, RTs increase the noise part of the signal to noise ratio in what can already be a rather noisy…

  2. Job History

    My first job was working in an orange juice factory, but I got canned … couldn’t concentrate. Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn’t hack it, so they gave me the ax. After that I tried to be a tailor, but I just wasn’t suited for it … mainly…

  3. Carrington Presentation at Refresh Denver

    I gave a Carrington Theme Framework overview presentation tonight at Refresh Denver. This was a very condensed preview of what I have planned for my session at WordCamp Denver next month.

  6. Dual-Link DVI Cable Causes Crash

    So that my Mac Pro would fit properly under my desk I needed a longer DVI cable than the 6ft. cable that came with my Dell 30″. I ordered a 10ft CablesToGo cable from Amazon. When I hooked up the replacement cable, I had a bit of a surprise: my computer wouldn’t boot. I thought…

  8. 2008 in Review

    Welcome to my fourth annual year in review post. This year, unlike previous years, my blog is less of a good record of the past 365 days. It’s a combination of being a lot busier due to the growth at Crowd Favorite, and working on more client projects that I can’t talk about as they…
