Camera fun

Cool!

Offline doesn’t have to mean out of touch

A fact that I considered, but didn’t really worry about when I got my iPad, was that it’s a Wi-Fi-only model. The 3G models weren’t available yet and I don’t want to deal with AT&T anyway. Wi-Fi, while pretty common, is not freely available everywhere. Fortunately, it seems to be where I am about 80% of the time. That’s close enough for me.

This is not one of those times, however. It’s no big deal, either. The WordPress app for my iPad allows me to type entries completely offline and post them later when I have access again. Not a bad arrangement, if you ask me. It doesn’t matter if this gets posted at 5:45pm or 8:45pm, really. (more…)

Got a little time to kill

I had a dinner planned with a friend tonight, but he had to cancel at the last minute. Normally, I’d go home, but I have another meeting planned at 7:00pm, and if I go home I probably won’t make it to my next meeting. My couch tends to draw me over and suck me in when I go home. When that happens, I get lazy and probably fall asleep. That means I miss the meeting, and I don’t want to do that. (more…)

Oh. My. Goodness. This. Is. Good. Ice. Cream.

I’m sitting here (free WiFi for the win!) at the world’s best ice cream and frozen treats place. Atomic #7 offers an amzing variety of frozen goodies, and they’re all made fresh in front of you. Nothing is frozen until it’s ordered. Once ordered, the ingredients are all mixed in liqud form and then quick frozen with liquid nitrogen. Hydrogen being the 7th atomic elemnt, lends it’s coldness to freeze your ice cream in addition to being integral to the name.

Nitrogen frozen ice cream is amazing stuff. The process creates a smooth and lush texture with any of the seven “milk” bases Atomic #7 offers. Even almond milk, which doesn’t make terribly smooth and creamy traditional ice cream comes out creamy and smooth. Regular cream is tranformed into something that Ben & Jerry can only aspire to make.

Hey there Tweety!

Sorry for meaningless posts, but isn’t that what all this Web 2.0 goodness is really about?

I wonder if this makes it to my Twitter account….

iPad posting

I got an iPad a few days after they were released and I’m constantly amazed at the cool (and usually free) apps that are out for it. I can now write posts pretty much anywhere for my lovely but usued blog. Not sure if this will get me posting more, but it can’t hurt.

So, how is everyone out there? Leave me a comment or two.

Dear Massachusetts

Dear Massachusetts,

Well done. Thank you for making a wise choice.

I sincerely hope this is a step toward taking control of this country away form the looters and destroyers on both sides of the aisle.

Still alive

I hope I’ll get a little time to write some more stuff soon.
