“Weird Al” Yankovic – Word Crimes

“Weird Al” Yankovic – Word Crimes: This just made me think about all those grammar posts you see. Does it matter to many who aren’t writers, editors or English teachers?

Shopping around

At some point very soon, I’m going to have to wipe the hard drive on my laptop and reinstall Windows.  The main problem is, I bought it used from work and got the key for this copy of Vista since it came with the computer, but I don’t think I have an installation disc for […]

Well, duh

As the year comes to a close, I realized that I haven’t posted a lot this year.  There has been a lot on my mind, but it doesn’t always translate well to the screen. I saw an article several weeks ago about the McRib.  It was talking about how the McRib is processed meat.  Well […]

WYSIWYG or Not as the Case May Be

When I first started designing websites, I found editors that were referred to as WYSIWYG or What You See is What You Get.  For some reason, this phrase resonates with a few things I was listening to tonight when trying to get the boy to sleep.  One of these days, my 3 yo will sleep […]

SOPA – The Bad Idea That Would NOT Die

So every once in awhile, a new bill hits Congress with the goal of reducing online piracy.  The latest version of this is SOPA or the Stop Online Piracy Act.  The counterpart in the Senate is PROTECT-IP (this one’s a mouthful – Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act).  I […]

The Internet Archive and Donations

There are so many places looking for donations, it’s hard to choose just one.  Not only that, money seems to be tighter for a lot of people this year.   But if you’re looking for somewhere to donate, Archive.org is looking for donations.  They have increased the amount of information and websites that you can pull up through […]

Bundling – As in Software Bundling

So it’s obviously no secret that pretty much any download site bundles software with other programs.  For example, you might install a program and be asked if you also want to install Google toolbar.  Of course, it’ll also hijack your home page and default search page, but that’s another story.  With all the additions attached […]

Adobe, HTML5 and Mobile Flash

So, on Nov 9, Adobe announced they were no longer going to be developing Flash for mobile devices. Instead, they’d be concentrating on using Flash to support apps for the app stores. http://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/2011/11/flash-focus.html (Opens in a new window) On the one hand, it’s great news for most mobile devices, including phones.  LOL except for those […]

Facebook Changes – The Death of Privacy??

So I actually sat and watched most of the keynote address at Facebook’s F8 conference.  The beginning was interesting, with Andy Sandberg from SNL.  I honestly liked what Andy had to say more than what was said after.  Granted, some of it is going to be interesting… like the new timeline, but there’s going to […]

HTML5, Flash & Gaming

When I first read about the phase out of Flash games, I started to wonder.  Many games on Facebook use Flash.  What would they do about casual gamers like those who play on Facebook? Then I started reading this article (opens in a new window) where MMObility interviews the developers from Illyriad, who have a […]
