Ron Paul Media Blitz @ Tea Party 2007

The Ron Paul Boston Meetup Group has gathered money for a media advertising blitz and needs your help. We'll be putting ads on local and Southern NH radio stations. These ads will be related to Ron Paul in general as well as the Boston Tea Party 2007 event.

Pub Cheese Recipe

This cheese is great as a spread, but not thin enough to be a dip.

1 8 ounce package of cream cheese (softened)
1 8 ounce plastic tub of sharp cheddar cheese (softened) (preferably Wise Spread brand)
1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce (depending on taste)
1/2 or 1 teaspoon horseradish (depending on taste)
Combine all ingredients into a stand mixer (if you do not have one you can use a blender or a food processor) and mix together until well blended.

Chocolate Ron Paul coins may violate official Ron Paul Liberty Dollar gold coins

Amir, a brilliant young MIT student, has produced chocolate Ron Paul coins to spread the word and get our man elected. He is currently selling them at cost. However, he is using the likeness of Bernard von NotHaus' existing gold and silver Ron Paul Liberty Dollar coins to help sell the chocolate ones. Bernard's website states "All Rights Reserved". This is a problem.

Selective Colorization - 1st Attempt

My lazy Sunday afternoons are a constant quest to learn something new. This particular day it was about digital photographic post processing. More specifically, isolating a subject and making the rest of the photo black and white around it. In my case I have a picture of a girl with a slightly blurred tree in the background. To further isolate the model from the background, I've decided on this approach.

Flickr's API and software hybridization

Part of Flickr's success can be directly attributed to their opening up of their API. After doing so, numerous third party apps and websites were able to integrate Flickr's services with their own. If this were to ever become a growing trend (see Facebook) we'll start seeing more hybridization of web services with client software.

Mustang Air Filter Replacement [PIC]

I usually replace my air filter every spring. This year I let it slide until just this past month, October. Needless to say, the air filter was a mess. I can't stress enough how important good airflow is into a car. Anything >= 6 cylinders needs good airflow. With a 4 cylinder car you just need to make sure to feed the hamster once in a while.

    MIT supports Ron Paul

    According to

    Early this morning a group of MIT students decided they would take a
    stand against the emerging police state. Some supported Ron Paul and
    dropped a 60' long "Ron Paul rEVOLution" banner over the main campus
    building visible from the Charles river and much of Boston. Others
    chose to display a banner reading "Remember Remember the Fifth of
    November." Together they make an extraordinary sight. Please see the
    photo below.
