Bad Tech Blogging

( Rants andTech )

I occasionally read Gizmodo, as one of the blogs I use to keep up to date on electronics and technology. Recently, I’ve found that their reporting appears to be fairly poor, if not outright ridiculous. For instance, their recent article on the Samsung GX-10 DSLR mentions the Canon Rebel XTi and the Pentax K10, but […]

Picasa 2.5 Released

( News andPhotography andTech )

Good news for the PC users out there. Google has released Picasa v. 2.5. This is great for Windows-based PC users who are into digital photography, since the PC platform doesn’t really have anything like iPhoto on the Mac. There are higher-end programs, like i-View Multimedia Pro, and Lightroom, but i-View is fairly expensive for […]

Clueless Marketing

I recently found two comments on my blog for Bayliner Discovery boats. Apparently, the company has hired someone to place a marketing pitch on the comments of blogs that are boating related. I have found the comment on Bonnie’s blog, Frogma, as well as Sherry’s blog, Stay of Execution. They’ve apparently attempted to post the […]

September 11

Paris Parfait has an excellent entry for today. It truly expresses the difference between being an American and the American government—which has abused the tragedy of this day to hold on to political and economic power for itself. My thanks to Erin for the link. From Paris Parfait’s post: No words adequate to describe the […]

She’s Back Home Again

I finally got down to the marina again. I haven’t been able to get down here for a whole bunch of reasons, and it was good to be back on the Pretty Gee again. Friday, I spent a good part of the day getting her ready to be put back in the water. Most of […]

Woo & Hunter’s Wedding: Part 3—Airline Security Redux

I got up this morning at about 5:00 a.m. I had an 8:10 flight to catch back up to Beantown. After getting dressed and packed, I walked down to the hotel lobby. I asked the front desk to call a cab for me, to take me to the Newport News airport. A few minutes later, […]

Woo & Hunter’s Wedding: Part 2

This weekend, I headed down to Newport News, Virginia. Getting to Newport News was a challenge, but not all that bad, except the nine-and-a-half hour day spent in Logan International Airport. Flying down to Virginia, while tropical storm Ernesto is sitting over the state is not really my idea of fun, but I had made […]

Woo & Hunter’s Wedding: Part 1—The Joys of Air Travel

Today, I’m writing this post from my hotel room, down in Newport News, Virginia. I flew down this evening for a wedding tomorrow. I’m due to fly back on Sunday morning. The problem with air travel, aside from the security issues, is that trying to do so during the hurricane season can be challenging. Yesterday, […]
