Fire Eyed Boy

22 December, 2011

A couple of weeks ago I took delivery of my latest toy – a Kindle Fire. I’d been eyeing Kindles for a while, and the combination of an ‘expanded functionality’ e-reader (I don’t know that I’d call it a full tablet PC) and a price point of $199.00 (and me having $199.00 worth of Amex [...]

Hot Doughnuts Two Hours Ago

20 December, 2011

New Krispy Kreme storefinder app shows you when the Hot Doughnuts Now sign is on at your ‘local’ Krispy Kreme store: Do you think the light will still be list by then time I’ve driven the 126 miles?? Tweet Share this:

Worldwide outbreak of arrogance

3 December, 2011

Just noticed this on Facebook: “Worldwide (Excluding U.S. and Canada)”?? Well it’s not worldwide, then, is it? Bit like the World holding a Mr. Universe competition – a bit presumptuous, no? Tweet Share this:

How Local is Online?

3 November, 2011

OK, I know websites try to serve up relevant advertisements, but sometimes it just doesn’t work. Here, I was searching for online episodes of The Office, and I handily get an advert for inviting me to search for “online” stuff locally (see third advert). But really, how local is online??

Old Age Is Just Around The Bend

11 October, 2011

Since my divorce, my social life has opened up again (they don’t call them a ball-and-chain for nothing…). Actually, it has really ‘had the ability’ to open up, because I haven’t actually done anything. The point is that I could have. If I’d wanted to. This week I finally decided that it was time to [...]

Learning from The Decemberists

3 October, 2011

Rock’s most erudite lyricist. 10 new (old) words courtesy of The Decemberists’ Colin Meloy: Palanquin (The Infanta) – A covered seat on poles carried by bearers Dirigible (Sons & Daughters) – An airship Fontanelle (The Crane Wife 1 & 2) – any of the spaces closed by membranous structures between the uncompleted angles of the [...]

Evacuation Desperation

28 September, 2011

At work, we are in the middle of a critical (to me…) stage in the project – training development. It’s now the training team’s time to shine, and because all of the prior activities (build, data loading, testing) have over-run their time, we’re being really squeezed on how much time we have left to deliver [...]
