Feeling content, seeing content, being content.

I’ve observed an interesting bit of my own online behaviour lately, and though I should mention it. As much as I’ve loved using NetNewsWire to pull together and display absolutely ludicrous amounts of aggregated news and bloggerisms in a single, unadorned window — I’ve found myself drifting back to my browser and my bookmark list. … Read the rest of this item

Grumpy old men.

What the hell has crawled up some people’s butts? Please indulge me for a moment while I explain. My wife and I, along with our dog, were enjoying a warm summer evening in our back yard.

Domain name of the what?

What do you mean it’s supposed to be every week? Are you sure about that? I’ve slipped a cranial cog before, but this is downright embarrassing.

Type(Re)Con.

Miss me? If you did, you may also be wondering what the heck was up with the recent radio silence. Well kids, I’ve been sans connectivity whilst tootling around the Twin Cities, being slightly overwhelmed by the heavy-duty typographic content and charmed by the friendly folks at TypeCon 2003.

RSSexier.

First of all, I’d like to thank all those folks (who obviously have an enormous amount of extra cycles to burn) that took the time to tell me that the pages linked from my RSS feed looked — well — less than sexy.
