  • Margin of Excellence Award!

    This morning, I had just started BTS 161 class when some people started filing in through the door: Linda Walker with some balloons, my boss Suzanne, and a few others I knew… At first, I thought some people needed to make an announcement, but then I saw BC President Dave Rule, and I thought I […]

  • On Being Evacuated: It’s every volunteer’s worst nightmare.

    Originally posted on Sara in Peace Corps Guinea:
    Today volunteers in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia received the information that we will be sent home for an undetermined amount of time as a cautionary move against the rising risk of Ebola. Electron micrograph image of the Ebola virus. Friends and family back home are overjoyed…

  • Seth’s Blog: The perfect crime

    Another sign that Big Money has gone too far, and that corporations are too powerful. Originally, corporations were granted charters for two years, and could only be renewed if they could prove they were doing the public good. As Seth Godin says here, business for the sake of short-term profit, with no accountability to the […]

  • The Third Letter

    The Third Letter

    Little Mama is dying. I wrote her some letters, and Milena told me she read them to her, and that she told everyone to make plans to go to Ft Worth for the big art opening in December. That makes me happy, to know that she wants to go. That project was a big one […]

  • Evolution According to Jason Silva

    Check out this glorious rant from Jason Silva: This one is quite controversial on YouTube… People don’t know how to take it, or even how to understand it. But if nothing else, I love how Jason Silva pushes the boundaries of social convention. He’s a dreamer, and societies always need such visionaries to keep shit […]

  • Venus Transit

    2012/06/21: Final version. Mastered by Dell at Pep Ventura in Dallas. Nice loudness maximizing, man! 2012/06/20 (entry two): Okay. Calling it DONE.

  • Selling Removable Hard Drives, Trays, and Carriers

    One of my projects at DanitaDelimont.com is to prepare to sell about 100 hard drives and their removable trays+carriers. Nobody knows the brand, but there is one US Patent number on the carriers: 5563767. Google shows lots of patent sites with that record, and sure enough, the drawings included with the patent do indicate this […]

  • CrashPlan.com: Error Message

    CrashPlan.com: Error Message, a photo by yugenro on Flickr. Looks like CrashPlan’s servers are experiencing disconnects… bummer. First time since I went all-out with them about 9 months ago that this has happened, afaik. https://crashplan.zendesk.com/entries/20660956-connectivity-issues-november-14 Via Flickr: What’s going on with CrashPlan.com? I’ve been unable to access the site all day, neither from a web […]

  • Memolane Embed

    <script src=”http://memolane.com/yugenro/Personal%20Lane.js”>My Personal Memolane</script> This is a test of embedding my Memolane. Hm. Nothing. According to this Help page, all you have to do is paste in your Memolane’s URL inside a couple <<script>> tags… Not so simple, it seems…

  • T-Mobile G1 Pricing: LIES!

    Okay, what’s the deal with T-Mobile’s pricing for the new “Android” phone, the G1? Word is out that it will go for $179. Sweet!, I thought. I immediately went online to my MyTmobile account to snatch up a pre-order. But what happens when I get to the page where I get to pick which color […]
