We Passed 10K

And no one left me a comment to claim it. SO….. Thanks to Susie for being my 10,000th visitor, even thought she was stuck in a Technology Free Zone™. I mean, since no one claimed it, one good turn deserves another, right?

Holiday Shopping Horror Stories

I’m pretty sure most people have them. LIke the time the person I was in a relationship with went shopping for my Christmas present at 4:15 pm on Christmas Eve (they claimed that Christmas “snuck” up on them). What did I get? A coffee cup and a bottle of Absolut vodka. While the vodka was […]

Always, Always, Always

I was over at CarpetBagger’s last night, and her machine was acting funny. Turns out she hadn’t done any of the recommended updates and security patches that Windows XP (she’s on broadband, behind a firewall) had suggested she do. So, when I got there, there were 38 critical updates to run, as well as some […]

Those who know you know to get the hell out of yourway when you start to get upset. What DIRE WEATHER FORECAST do you turn into when you’re angry? brought to […]

Today’s Edition of LinkLuv™

Prepare for Pongs! I just edited this post. Susie linked to Me, Me, Me, Me, and Me. (and Ponged Me in the process, but she’s cute, so that’s permissible). I seem to be popular with the ladies (hmmm… LOL), for I was Tink’s 500th visitor. Revog does a little bit of linking while Punchbuggy is […]

Also, the revitalized Napster Pay service starts up October 29. For those who pre-register, you get 5 free downloads.

The Importance of A Living Will

People, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR WISHES ARE KNOWN. Take, for example, the following article. The husband claims he knows what the wife in the vegatative state would want. Her parents, however, think they know better (it also sounds like they’re greedy, but that’s a personal aside). Since she did not have a Living Will, now […]

I Love My Silver Tree…

But it’s a good thing I didn’t see this one first: (The photo is watermarked, don’t think the tree is two different colors.) According to Ebay, here’s the description: Sapphire Fir The nostalgic Silver holographic tree is back with a twist. This tree adds a fresh look to any space without looking too crazy, just […]

Over Looked Artist of the Day

Today’s overlooked artist is: BOSSON. Attempting to join the ranks of his pop star counterparts, Sweden’s Bosson (pronounced B Sahn) might just have the cheeky persona to make teens swoon. His funky hip-hop sound combines light techno beats for a Euro-dance club sound. But he is also a balladeer, similar to the likes of 98 […]

Well, some continuing News

I’ve finally established www.poloblue.net as my webdesign URL. It finally no longer points to my regular URL of silverblue.org Not only that, but I’ve registered PoloRandy’s URL: polorandy.com. Of course, that takes time to be updated. Then he has to decide what he wants on his site. (Is it just going to be a blog, […]

Lunch, The Way It Used To Be

Tink and I had lunch at a hole in the wall, The Retro Diner. The food there is like food of yesteryear (in fact, I compare it favourably to Bowling Alley Food, and you’ve got to agree with me that a there’s nothing like a Bowling Alley Cheeseburger). Then it was off to Dairy Queen […]

A little brain goes a little way

Hat tip to Revog for passing this on After a long weekend of installing upgrades, bleary-eyed IT Pilot Fish is eating breakfast at his desk when user stops by with a printed-out email and a question. User: “have you ever heard of ‘snail mail’?” IT Pilot Fish: “yes…” User:”Do we get that here?”

Ok, I need a little bit of Movable Type Template Help

I’d like it to list the TrackBacks under the posts, but I’m not sure how to do that, or where it goes. Can someone help me out?

If it’s Tuesday, It Must Mean

….that my sitemeter is going to screw up. And it is. I’m in line to (hopefully) break that 10K barrier today myself (leave me a comment if it’s you!) and what happens? The blasted thing is STUCK at 9856. It also tells me I haven’t had any visitors in the past hour. LIAR! 🙂

Morning Gentle Readers

and a morning to those who aren’t so gentle when they read my blog. Tuesday. October 21. BREAK OUT THE CHRISTMAS MUSIC! Today is the traditional day (October 21, not Tuesday) when I start filtering in a Christmas tune or two. Come November 1, it starts in force, with about half the music that I’m […]
