Maybe a Fractal a day?

Posted by grelmar on February 5th, 2011

I keep wondering what to do with this space.  This blog as a whole suffers from an extreme lack of posts over the past few years.  More than once, I’ve tried to come up with a reason to do “a post a day”, but really, that’s a lot of work.  And I have a day […]

The World’s Most Excessive Mouse

Posted by grelmar on November 12th, 2009

What do you get when you unleash Open source types on hardware design?  Sometimes, you get beautiful, quirky, devices.  Sometimes you get “design by committee” monstrosities that would have been better off never leaving the drawing board. The WarMouse, also called the OpenOffice Mouse (which seems to be how they’re branding it), falls into the […]

Code Comments.

Posted by grelmar on November 8th, 2009

This might seem a little odd, but I have a habit of reading the code of web pages.  It might seem less odd when you realize I still do a bit of WebDev now and then, and it can be a useful way of figuring out the tricks people use to accomplish different things. Sometimes, […]

I hate phones.

Posted by grelmar on November 4th, 2009

It’s funny.  On the surface, most people would think I’m a phone nut.  I’m on it a lot, and I tend to have phones right near the edge of the envelope, technology-wise. Right now, I have both an iPhone (personal) and a BlackBerry (business – paid for by my company).  I have them set up […]

Halloween Post Mortem

Posted by grelmar on November 1st, 2009

Halloween has always been one of my favourite days of the year.  As a kid, I can distinctly remember trick or treating.  The costumes, the gleeful chaos of going door to door with my sister’s, and seeing all the children running up and down the street on a sugar buzz that would extend late into […]

Happy Halloween!

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 […]
