Happy Halloween!

Posted by grelmar on October 31st, 2009

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  so today’s post is going to be just a bit over that (if you include the actual words). I present this year’s pumpkins:

The White House Goes Open Source.

Posted by grelmar on October 30th, 2009

I’m a bit under the gun here.  I was actually working, and kinda lost track of time.  Now I’m staring down 40 minutes to make my personally imposed “deadline.”  Let’s see if I can come up with a couple of hundred words. I think I’ll stick with the tech theme of the past couple of […]

How to upgrade your OS.

Posted by grelmar on October 29th, 2009

Following up on yesterday’s post… For those of you contemplating upgrading to Win7, or making any major OS upgrade (be it Mac, Linux, Unix, Solaris, whatev…), here’s some advice i posted on a forum, I thought I’d repost it here, on the off chance somebody reads it.

Feeling better. Still looking for something to say.

Posted by grelmar on October 28th, 2009

I wouldn’t exactly call it writer’s block.  Obviously, I can still crank out a few lines. But I just don’t really have much to talk about tonight. I suppose I’ll talk about Windows 7. I haven’t actually installed it on a system yet.  But, oddly, I’m really looking forward to it.  I played around with […]

Gawd am I sick today…

Posted by grelmar on October 27th, 2009

No, really. I woke up with a head cold to beat all.  Tried to get some work done from home this morning but then just crawled back into bed.  I probably shouldn’t have tried to get some work done because I suspect I fat fingered some imaging in a vain attempt to be productive, and […]

Ethics of writing…

Posted by grelmar on October 26th, 2009

That last post got me thinking a bit, and some reading I did today kind of brought the point home. Should a writer be bound by ethical constraints? The libertarian part of me says no.  I’m decidedly against censorship. At the same time, I do believe in acting responsibly.  Maybe exerting a bit of self […]

So why am I doing this?

Posted by grelmar on October 25th, 2009

Ok, so that’s a poor start.  Two posts, then I miss two days.  I’ll try and make up for it by having something a bit meatier. When I told my wife I was planning on doing this, writing a post a day, the first thing she wanted to know was “what are you going to […]

Day-cations rule!

Posted by grelmar on October 22nd, 2009

Ok, so in a way, it’s not really a “Day-cation” because I’ve been on holiday all week.  But in a way, it is, because we took today to do a nice little day trip out to Banff. And it was great. The mountains are beautiful this time of year.  Driving out of the city and […]

A Post a day…

Posted by grelmar on October 21st, 2009

Ok, how hard could it be? Post something, anything, at least once a day.  It doesn’t have to be long, or thoughtful, or important.  Just dump at least one idea a day in here. Really, it shouldn’t be hard.  It should just take some discipline. Realistically, I have at least one thought per day I […]
