I can’t get no.. motivation

It’s a slightly better day today, but it’s clearly a Friday around the office. It’s very quiet at times, but then conversations break out all over the place, most of them concerned with how early it is, how little people...


Behold, the urban geek

After staying home from work today to accept delivery from UPS of my new PC (which they never even called me for, but I ain’t complaining), I made a run to Radio Shack and Starbucks — true urban geekdom. The...


Your rules do not apply here, sweetheart.

Fixed mini and No pics at the mall

I managed to wander out today, very slowly and head over to the Apple Store at Pentagon City to take my mini in for service. I really miss the “good ol days” of Apple support when you could just send...


I’m in love!!!

My new iPod arrived yesterday and it is fabulous. All of what I thought would be technical issues went off without a hitch. The tunes on my external mac-formatted drive were seen by my PC’s iTunes and while they all...
