It’s a pretty rare event that I post on February 29th, and for a change, it has nothing to do with how busy I am. ;) A few pre-midterm thoughts while Twitter is MIA (again!)… Don’t let the RIAA fool you — the music lawsuits were never about protectnig the artists. I’ll be really surprised […]
A large tree branch decided that I needed a break from reporting weather from my station for a few days, falling on my anemometer during a storm today and taking it out. Worse, the nose is broken off of it. The nose has a weight in it, which keeps the anemometer right on track. It […]
Ray tagged me like a bajillion years ago to show off my Start menu. I never do memes, but what the heck. Everybody who reads this blog probably wonders why I never update anymore. So, in the interest of being a smartass, I present my Dock instead. ;) Bwhaha.
Due to the threat of severe weather tonight, I’m broadcasting SuperDeeDooper Doppler tonight using GRLevel3‘s Web publishing mechanism. It updates every five minutes or so, and shows watches, warnings, rotating storms, hail chances, and more. Check out the 248 NM scan!
We all know that I’m not a fan of immunity for telecommunications companies that helped the government in its (at best) legally-questionable warrantless wiretapping program. (Which, thankfully, the House grew some backbone and stopped on Thursday! :) ) Today, Facebook and ABC News asked about telecom immunity in its latest poll question, and I jumped […]
This post is the genesis of much internal turmoil and self-debate, as there are a number of angles I can come at Valentine’s Day with. The original plan was to come at it from my typical tongue-in-cheek style with a pinch of self-deprecation and bitterness over being single for the 20th time on the 14th of February. Then, I realized the timing of this year, and I must use this precious space to do the right thing.
This makes me ill (via NYT): The Senate rejected a series of amendments that would have restricted the governmentâ€™s surveillance powers and eliminated immunity for the phone carriers, and it voted in convincing fashion â€” 69 to 29 â€” to end debate and bring the issue to a final vote. That vote is expected later […]
So this is what a BlackBerry holiday feels like. RIM has got a case of the Mondays. No clue when e-mail will be back. Guess it’s back to the good old days of checking in every now and again… Update: More from Engadget. Yes, I too would like to know about the “this will never […]
I think people would be interested to know what I do in class — so here goes. This is for my Television News Reporting class. My “news team” rocks. Justin, the guy who taped this, does part-time work in the College’s documentary department as a photog — and it shows, in 24p goodness. Alison, who […]
The P&C is reporting this morning on the possibility of an Apple Store opening in the former Cumberland’s space on King Street. That would be very sweet, and fit right in with the high-end shopping King Street is known for. Hat tip to James for the initial headsup over Twitter and Matthew for finding the […]
