It’s been a Samsung kind of month here at the castle. First it was the Galaxy Tab. Then we added a Samsung refrigerator. Finally, we ended up buying a second Samsung TV. Why did we need another TV? Well, our second daughter has started a job in Chanute, Kansas as an assistant basketball coach. She […]

It has been an amazingly hectic week.  And today has epitomized the chaos that I’ve felt.  This week has seen a lot: We got back from vacation (which was really just a long weekend).  But we have been struggling to re-integrate into our normal routines. The man who enticed me to leave my previous job […]

The social networks have been aglow with the news that Spotify has jumped the pond.  It is being hailed as the closest thing to the second coming of the musical messiah.  Indeed, some predict that Spotify will finally bring profitability to an otherwise flagging digital music market. I don’t know about all of that.  I […]

Google+ Is Changing The Way I Blog

July 10, 2011

Google+ is already affecting the way that I blog – at least, a little bit.  I really want people to be able to use +1 for my blog posts.  And I didn’t see the GetSocial folks solving this issue any time soon.  So I started to look around and see if there was any native […]

I’ve been hearing the buzz about Google+ for months.  It has been the subject of many tech conversations for quite some time.  But I’ve been way too busy with weddings and work.  So Google+ has taken a back seat at our home.  But that ended yesterday. A few of my friends saw a plaintive lament […]

After spending quite a bit of time (and devoting a little coin of the realm) to the Amazon Cloud Drive, I received an email informing me that Google has requested me to participate in the private beta of their new music service.  I am more than a little surprised that I was included.  But who […]

Once I had the new WP 3.1b1 running, it was time to build links.  My first thought was to use ShareThis.  It is a great plugin that builds links for every post.  And it worked flawlessly on my local WordPress 3.1b1 platform.  But it won’t work on WordPress.com. So I started to read up on […]

For anyone’s who has read more than one of my blog posts, my next statement won’t be a surprise: I truly love music. I love all kinds of music. And music has always been a social experience for me. And whether you believe that we were created by an all-powerful God or you believe that […]

Over the past three weeks, I’ve been playing the Spymaster game.  I am sure that everyone has heard of it.  Tweets about this game (and 160Mafia) clutter many people’s twitter streams – including mine. If you want a review of the game, there are plenty of other places to go.  As for me, I feel […]
