HDTV - Really what we want?

I spent a goodly portion of the New Years holiday weekend watching football (yes, football) and some way-cool outdoor ice hockey on ESPN HD and FOX HD. When we switched back to good ol' analog ABC to view another game, I thought my eyes weren't working right. The screen was all jagged with compression artifacts, the graphics were illegible. I could see blobs moving around the screen, but couldn't tell if they were linebackers or amoebas.

Happy New Year

Nothing says Welcome 2008 like embracing a giant neon fish.

Happy New Year!

It's alive!

Well, it's finally up and running - an unholy marriage of Wordpress and Drupal.

Science prove shitty drivers cause traffic delay

"Dr Orosz continued: 'When you tap your brake, the traffic may come to a full stand-still several miles behind you. It really matters how hard you brake - a slight braking from a driver who has identified a problem early will allow the traffic flow to remain smooth. Heavier braking, usually caused by a driver reacting late to a problem, can affect traffic flow for many miles.'"

A lapse in judgment, or great opportunity?

As if I wasn't busy enough, I attended a meeting Friday with folks from The Creative Coast, Savannah Morning News, and a couple of other folks... and in a moment of weakness offered to host the site for this year's BlogSavannah (un)conference... which turned into hosting BlogSavannah.com itself, as Drew can't do it this year.


Tonight was Christmas card picture night. The Wife had asked me about a dozen times to not forget to bring my tripod home from work. Then she took about 3 hours to get ready for her on-camera debut, while I set up by the fire (in 80 degree weather).
I did everything in my power to reach a calm, happy state.
Of course, we ordered our photo cards online from QOOP, so they'll probably arrive on the 15th...of January.


Quoth The Wife: "You are such a guy."

Drunk Redneck Jumps His Suzuki - Watch more free videos

I think I have a new catchphrase.

"We're getting rid of cable" or "I heart the internets"

The Wife and I had some sort of epiphany the other night. You know the kind - the sort that lights up like a beacon on the horizon, leading you to a new path in your life.... or like a bowl full of jalapeño queso dip, just gives you awful gas.

We realized that we'd barely turned on the television in more than a week.

Google Street View coming to Savannah

I spotted this begadgeted Chevy Cobalt heading West on Hwy 80 toward Tybee Island.

Guess that means that some time soon you'll see me on Google Maps, speeding along, iPhone in hand, trying to take a decent picture. Obviously I failed.

Will be cool to get street-level views of the historic district though.
