Of the Bird in My Hallway

July 25th, 2008 at 11:14 am » Comments (3)

This morning, when I got up to leave my office and was about to leave the hallway to get to the rest of the building, I was a bit surprised to find a wren as I turn the corner, flying right over my head! This of course gave me an excuse to test out the […]

Best Videos Ever for Facilities Managers – Or IT Managers!

May 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am » Comments (0)

The two videos that Tony Dye posted about the Juggling FMer are quite possibly my two favorite videos of all time (although my wife would prefer I put our wedding video at the top I think :-) Although related to Facilities Management, they apply equally well in most cases to Information Technology, and are thus […]

If you don’t want to hear from people, just say so

April 27th, 2008 at 3:36 am » Comments (5)

OK so this is a little nitpicky, but it’s got me slightly annoyed with Scholarpedia because they don’t appear to publish any contact information. Here’s how I got there in the first place (why do I tell you? To confuse you, of course!): Through a chain I won’t make you follow (and probably couldn’t recall), […]

Hide and Seek Mouse

January 31st, 2008 at 12:29 am » Comments (1)

Yesterday, I was packing up my laptop from the coffee table to take with to work. I had placed the wireless mouse I use into its case and on top of the mouse pad I use, next to the laptop (I pack the mouse after my power cord, which was still plugged in). When I […]

Dealing with Dual-Spousal OCP: Two Years

October 15th, 2007 at 6:00 am » Comments (3)

In honor of being married to my lovely wife for two years today, I have decided to share my secret to finding a compatible woman to marry. Specifically, if you’re both OCPs (Obsessive-Compulsive Perfectionists). (Some people might use a term with the initials AR, rather than OCP. That’s your choice.) The basic principle you must […]

Manual Humor

September 13th, 2007 at 7:51 am » Comments (1)

In my Technical Writing class, someone brought up the point in the discussion forums that many manuals are either to broad for a novice to comprehend, or too detailed and frustrate experts just looking for a quick reference and trying to skim. I decided to reply with an example showing how a nested list could help provide details for a novice while still being easy to skim for an expert. And, of course, I decided to throw in a touch of ironic humor since I was making up the example anyway.

Exploding Soup

June 30th, 2007 at 8:45 pm » Comments (0)

Normally, I really like the cans of soup or fruit that come with the pull-tab to open, rather than requiring a can opener. Generally easier to open, and not messy. Plus, you don’t have to find the can opener. However, it’s very bad if a can comes with the tab broken off the top (it […]

User Friendly Bible, says Geeky Church Sign

June 10th, 2007 at 10:14 pm » Comments (0)

I’m trying to keep the non-original-content posts to a minimum but I found Amber Mac’s post and pic of a geeky church sign she saw funny enough to share (thanks to Tech No Babel for the link).
