Mama, don’t let your babies, grow up to be techies…

Posted by grelmar on February 12th, 2011

Kinda neat one…  Not often you end up rendering a fractal that ends up being all straight lines.  At least, not with the software/methods I use. So, it’s Saturday night, and here I sit locked down in front of the keyboard…  Again.  Like so many Saturday nightsw before me, and so many after.  I’m really […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

New Job

Posted by grelmar on November 19th, 2008

Subtitle: New Stress, but Good Stress Well, just started my new job yesterday, and man, talk about jumping on a learning curve.  Surprisingly, this doesn’t bother me too much.  I’m playing with some pretty hardcore gear, and isn’t that what it’s all about? Let’s put it this way: If you’re a pilot, you probably want […]

A Good Friday at Work

Posted by grelmar on December 3rd, 2007

Subtitle: Breaking Stuff for Fun and Video So, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it here, but I changed jobs yet again a couple of months ago. I’m working at a “Technology Re-Marketing Company” now. Basically, we collect old, surplus tech from large companies, refurbish and sell what we can, the rest we sell to […]

I’m not as lazy as I thought I was…

Posted by grelmar on July 25th, 2007

Subtitle: Or maybe everyone else is just lazier. So, I’m almost 2 months into the new job, and like any FNG, I worry about whether I pull my weight. Especially at a job where I find myself spending an inordinate amount of time surfing the net, working on my blog, finding excuses to take long […]

Blogging from the new job.

Posted by grelmar on July 5th, 2007

Subtitle: Great new job, and I hate it already. This could almost be considered a post from the files of someone who’s never satisfied. Or at least from the files of someone who pretty obviously doesn’t know what he wants from life. Almost 3 months ago, I finally pulled the pin at my job with […]

Well, I guess it’s time to go back to work.

Posted by grelmar on February 14th, 2007

Subtitle: The vacation didn’t accomplish what I wanted. I have a love/hate relationship with my job. A very big part of me derives a great deal of satisfaction working in an altruistic field. Day in and day out, I work to improve the lives of the homeless in my city, ease their burdens, and on […]
