blog your type?

Friday, November 21st, 2008

This is neat.  Typealyzer claims to examine a blog (or presumably any webpage) in order to identify the Myers-Briggs type of the author.  It correctly identifies me as an INTP, but doesn’t seem to get etselec. Adidas neo Thankspring wedding dresses uk deep, hermes bags noisy burberry handbags peach, suns jerseys apricot, louboutins pear, no […]

robert johnson

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

Dear Amazon.com: After buying the collected works of Robert Johnson, blues guitarist from the 1930s, the man who was reputed to have sold his soul to the devil to become the greatest blues guitarist ever, I really don’t think I want albums by Robert Johnson the 70s power pop musician.  I know they have the […]

at home in the (technical) universe

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

Some recent (somewhat) technical notes: A while back, I swapped the dead harddrive from my ipod with a compact flash card.  Unfortunately, at the time, the biggest (affordable) compact flash was 16 GB, so I lost about half the capacity from my ipod.  Not a huge problem, but it became more of one as I […]

Thinking about camera equipment

Friday, November 14th, 2008

I started taking photography more seriously about ten years ago.  I put down my cheap point and shoot film camera and bought an SLR body, a few lenses and some slide film.  The great thing about shooting film (slide or print) is that you aren’t constrained by the quality of your camera.  My first SLR […]

New guitar

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Over the past few months, I’ve been thinking about getting a new guitar.  I’ve been heading up to High Strung in Durham and have played with maybe a dozen different models, but the one I kept coming back to was a Blueridge BR-243.  It’s got a beautiful sound and it’s very comfortable for me to […]

President Obama and race

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

My mother tells a story about my first day in first grade (and sadly, I’m more likely to remember stories of my childhood than the actual childhood).  I go off to school, probably all 70s style – plaid pants, mop haircut, etc., and when I come home she asks me about school.  In particular, how […]

President Obama

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

Polls just closed on the West coast.  With that, everyone calls Washington, Oregon and California for Obama – Obama wins!  And I’m heading to bed.  I would still like to see who wins NC.  It looks like it’ll be close, but we should know in the morning.  If I’m doing really good, I might stay […]

Go vote!

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

I headed over to the polling place to vote this morning.  As of 8:30am or so, there were no lines at our precinct.  But then, that’s not too surprising for a small precinct in a non-populous county.  Chronological observations: It’s raining, but the fall colors are wonderful. There were a fair number of cars parked […]
