My First Spoken Wikipedia Entry

After wanting to try my hand at audio recording for many years, I finally took the plunge. There have been plenty of times when I wanted to record important family events for archives for future generations. The final impetus for going head on was a desire to try my hand at podcasting. This is directly related to a business idea I've been working on for a couple of weeks.

Cheesy Southwestern Scrambled Eggs

Cheesy Southwestern Scrambled Eggs

2 eggs
1 heaping tablespoons salsa
2 slices feta cheese
1 dash freshly ground pepper
1 dash cumin

Cook the eggs in a skillet. Sprinkle a small amount of pepper and cumin. Continue mixing. Before the eggs are fully cooked (while they're soft), dump them onto a plate. Put 2 small slices of feta cheese on top. Pour on the salsa. Then add some sour cream. Let it sit for a minute covered, then eat.

Why I should try harder...

In thinking about my online businesses, blogging, photography, and a myriad of other things I don't do often enough, I came across this blog posting:

PHP Needs an IDE Juggernaut

I had to decide on a language for a recent programming project. The application needed to run server side on a LAMP stack. Since PERL is too arcane for my taste, the choice was PHP. It was the right language for the system it was to be run on.

Norton Anti-Virus is a Scam

A co-worker recently asked me if he should re-new his subscription to his anti-virus software. Here's my opinion:

Norton antivirus software is a rip-off. It's primary goal is identical to that of the TSA: to make you think you're secure. Not that it doesn't work, it's just that there are other products that are free and in many tests outperform Norton. AVG is an extremely popular, proven, and free antivirus tool I'd recommend using.

You have to love Roomba

Setup the Roomba in my new apartment. It works wonders. The apartment is all carpeted so constant, regularly scheduled cleaning is a must. With the scheduling feature I have the Roomba set to run bi-weekly. On his first run he picked up more dirt than I care to admit. You'd think with my incredibly powerful Dyson my carpets would be impeccable. Of course, the Dyson only cleans my carpets when I choose to use it. And so far that hasn't been often.

Economic Downturn? Start Your Business Now!

An economic downturn is a great time to start that business you've been thinkg of. Jason Calacanis, who made his fortunes with Weblogs Inc., started his company after the Dot Com bubble burst. One of the reasons to start a business now is that a lot of the competition dries up. The VCs pull back and funding gets tighter. Even tech marketing genius Seth Godin agrees.

Bypassing Corporate Bureaucracy To Use SVN

the best google result for "svn"What do you do when your company is too bureaucratic to give it's developers access to any kind of version control whatsoever? You roll your own. Well, not exactly. I'm not about to re-write my own in house version control system. But when I'm prevented from using TortoiseSVN, I go the old command line route. TortoiseSVN is a nice graphical frontend to SVN. It embeds itself in Explorer's context menu.
