ho-lee crap.

it’s been 2.5 months since I last posted? it’s been 2.5 months since I was in Nevis? it’s November? ack. effecting repairs, more sooner rather than later because, well, jeebus. (especially since right before I went to Nevis I said I’d post more. FAIL.)

a few (quick) thoughts on nevis

the green on blue on blue is gorgeous it’s a lot more humid than I thought it’d be lots of people give their vehicles a name, and advertise it in large vinyl letters groceries are hella expensive I like Carib beer the free-range goats and donkeys make me giggle some sitting on the porch reading […]

cleaning out some cobwebs

it’s been a long time since I posted anything meaningful here, and it’s a habit I’m trying to break. I’ve spent most of my posting effort over on flickr, but it’s been really lacking. I have a lot to say, I’ve just had a really hard time saying it. more to the point, I’ve had […]

all these things that I have done

so, I got in to my hotel last night at around 10:30 (I’m on the left coast, so it felt like 01:30) and had every intention of crashing. before I nodded off, I flipped on the tube, and stumbled across the premiere of “Carrier”, PBS’s new documentary that captures a tour of duty aboard the […]

the nhl is important in the usa

so… the nhl playoffs start tonight. you can see how important espn thinks this is. there is not one story about the playoffs visible in the prime real estate. phil mickelson playing a par-freaking-three event with his kids is bigger news. that’s awesome. bettman’s done a hell of a job raising awareness of the game […]

firefox 3: disabling the awesomebar

UPDATE: The browser.urlbar.richResults preference checking was removed in bug 407836. Please use the oldbar addon if you want to return to Firefox 2’s style of lookups. The rest of this post is kind of moot now 🙂 Some people don’t like the “awesomebar” in Firefox3, which is a widget that replaced Firefox 2’s location bar’s […]
