Olympics For Sale !!

NBC Olympics Home Page

NBC Olympics requires a cable subscription in order to view online content. I don’t have a cable subscription and neither do millions of people. So NBC has decided that those of us in this situation do not need to view the Olympics. This isn’t right, but (for now) there’s not a lot we can do.

Yet Another Change (or how Microsoft CRM got the better of me)

For the last three months, I’d been doing some Microsoft Dynamics CRM administrating. If you read my previous post, you’ll see that I was not enjoying things. Well, Microsoft Dynamics CRM has won the battle of wills. I have decided to move on to more (mostly) familiar ground and do some e-Commerce programming. So… what… Continue reading Yet Another Change (or how Microsoft CRM got the better of me)

Too many changes

For the last three years, I’d been working in Roseville, California. Nothing too unusual there, except for the fact that I’d been living in Fresno; about three hours away by car.

For most of that time I’ve used the Priceline “Name Your… Continue reading Priceline Hotel Ratings System Need Revamping

Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman and Me

Zatoichi meets Yojimbo

This morning I was getting dressed and I happened to grab an old T-Shirt that I had made at CafePress. It features a picture of Zatoichi the Blind Swordsman and the phrase “What would Zatoichi do?” That got me reminiscing about about the Zatoichi series of movies which starred Shintaro Katsu back in the 60’s.

Me and My Big Head

This isn't me. This is Idris Elba.

Like a lot of geeks, I wear eyeglasses. Also, like a lot of geeks my head is kind of big. Unfortunately, having a big head makes finding new eyeglasses frames more difficult than it should be.

My First WordPress Post

I’ve finally decided to do something new: I installed the WordPress application on my website. This was actually pretty easy to do. This site is hosted by GoDaddy, with whom I’ve had some head-banging good times (see this). But this time, I simply clicked a few buttons, waited a short while, and voila!
