I've never bought the argument that playing violent games makes people violent. This is a nice synopsis of an obvious problem in that line of thinking.
The law is changing. If you purchase any goods or services for your business that are a tax writeoff, and the total exceeds $600 from a particular business, you must file a 1099 against that business. You had to do it for services anyway, but now you also have to do it for material goods.
If I've ever thrown around words and terms that make no sense, it's because I once worked at Microsoft. This guide will help you make sense of the things I say or the bizarre annotations I put in email.
The most erroneous stories are those we think we know best - and therefore never scrutinize or question.
It was brought to my attention today that comments were disabled on my site. Well, that's been fixed. Have fun!
I will have a week in July to hike and camp somewhere in the Southwest. I'm trying to decide where to go.
What I'm looking for:
- hot climate (dry preferred, but humid would be fine as well)
- warm at night (so not high altitude)... 50's is fine, dips to mid 40's is tolerable, but mostly I'd like it to be above 50 the whole time
- rich landscape
- easy access to an airport serviced by Southwest
This limits it, I think, to Phoenix, Tucson, San Diego, and Albuquerque. Maybe Florida, Alabama, or Arkansas.
Naturally, the person who develops this is unlikely to use it... meditation and chanting will calm even the most savage terrorist. Still, if it gets in the wrong hands...
One feature I want to make work in my website is automatic updates to Twitter when I post in the site. I think I have all the components installed, but it's not updating.
Facebook was easy. So why is Twitter so hard? What am I missing here?
I went to bed early last night, not feeling well. When I fell asleep, it was chilly, as it had been for the last few days.
When I woke up this morning, there was three inches of snow on the ground. And it's still snowing. Heavily, at the moment.
Spring was here. I have already switched over to summer tires on both vehicles. I was riding my motorcycle over the weekend, and even rode it to work Monday and Tuesday this week. The roads were dry, the sidewalks were dry, and there were just little patches of snow here and there, mostly in people's yards or shady areas.
The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.
