Re: “When vendors get nuts”

Friday, July 13th, 2007

Greetings, This is in response to: “When vendors get nuts” I’m not sure I deserve the shout-out from Kelly G, but I appreciate it! 🙂 To address one point in the post, though, you have to step back a minute and remember that those McAfee posts are probably made by one of their devs.  […]

A Knife, a Fork, a Bottle and a Cork…

Saturday, June 2nd, 2007

Greetings, I’m in New York. Glen Cove, my home town, to be precise. Even more precisely, I’m staying at a mansion converted to a hotel that is one block away from the high school I graduated from. 🙂 I still remember the structure of Glen Cove (despite having never driven here), but most of the […]

Greetings, (Sorry, technical difficulties…pictures will have to be included later!) So my wife and I are in the midst of a grand adventure, driving across the top of the country.

Pre-GnomeDex build-up

Thursday, June 22nd, 2006

Greetings, So I’m very, very much looking forward to Gnomedex, coming up at the end of this month. I went last year, and it was really cool. I went to the Seattle MindCamp, which was intense, a lot of fun, and tiring. I met good people at both, although the MindCamp folks were more…relaxed, I […]

Sometimes life moves pretty fast…

Tuesday, March 7th, 2006

Greetings, “…and if you don’t stop and look around you might miss it.” – Ferris Bueller, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off This is a purely personal blog entry, so if you’re looking for technical info (especially on eBay’s latest breakage), that’ll have to wait until my next entry. However, I want to thank all my JBidwatcher […]
