You might think you're cool. You might even be really cool.

But you'll never be as cool as Freddie Mercury riding Darth Vader.

From Bicycle Race, "And I don't like Star Wars" Yeah Freddie, everybody likes Star Wars.

There is a horrible kids show on Disney called Henry Hugglemonster. Leaving the slightly creepy name aside, they had a promo for an upcoming show that raised an eyebrow straight through the ceiling. Stop me if you've heard this before but it's about the kids getting mom a new pet monster thingy.

The pet is small, round, fluffy, cute, makes squeaking noises... and multiplies at an alarming rate.

Funny, I thought Disney bought Star Wars not Star Trek.

Daniel Messer was out treadmill running. He tracked 5.00 km in 29m:25s.

Bit of pain in my left hip still, but keeping it under 30 minutes is still holding.

Daniel Messer was out doing weight training. He tracked 5.00 km in 28m:42s.

Started running fast 5k's to do cardio for more lifting. My goal is to bring them in under 30 minutes and, so far that's happening.

Endomondo is pretty sweet. I've never done the subscription because I don't feel I need that much info. :) All I need is time and distance.

Time to change...

I feel the need to comment on this one. Because I use Linux, Windows, and Mac almost every day.

Updates are free, folks... on all of these operating systems.

What this should say is "An update is available for your computer" with each person saying "Huh, I'll install it later because I'm kinda busy right now."

This time I wanted to add some comic books to Side Books. I mean, it's not hard, but I always have to find things. Where's this? Where's the app? Where's the iPad?

There used to be this sidebar that displayed everything. It was glorious.

Daniel Messer was out running. He tracked 6.02 km in 38m:39s.

Took a couple days off due to some hip pain. There's still a bit of pain there but it's far more manageable now. Still brought in 6k in under 39 so I'm happy with that.

Cardio run and I felt a lot better afterwards. I swear there's a detox effect when I run.

Daniel Messer was out doing weight training for 29m:10s.

I find it odd that Endomondo asks for distance on weight training. Distance? I dunno, about the distance from my chest to the full extension of my arms? :)

Introduction
Hello. My name is Dan. I live online.

No, seriously, I do. My job, my passions, my hobbies, and my creativity all revolve around online life.

By day, I'm a public library web content manager which means I get paid to design, engineer, and put things online for the library.

In my off time, I write and create online content for myself and others. I'm a digital creative dabbling in illustrations, music, video making and podcasting. I'm the author of two books and I've written for several blogs and websites. While I still have a website or two, I've decided to bring the majority of my writing to Google+, a route taken by Mike Elgan and others and it's a method I agree with.

I write about everything that interests me, but if you glance at my drivel you'll see that I tend to write about tech, libraries, the remix culture, Linux and FOSS, online life, online video, podcasts, science, Japanese pop culture. and history.

I consider myself a cyberpunk -- a devotee of high tech and low life -- or at least high tech and low budget. One of my specialities is making tech work, and work well, even with a limited budget.

I have a degree in history, specializing in the history of science. I have an extensive background in astronomy with a focus on exosolar planetary systems. I'm a librarian who's worked in libraries for 18 years. Some of it made sense along the way.
Bragging rights
I wrote a couple of books. They're not great, but they're two more than most people write. :)
