Over on Twitter, my friend commented on how the cover for the Lake House could be a horror novel cover too. Another friend said the colour palette was too light.

Oh? Okay, no problem. Little change there, a quick filter here, some Photoshop there... and there we go! Horror novel!

Daniel Messer was out running. He tracked 5.00 km in 31m:46s.

Got a kilometer into my run before realizing that the GPS was disabled. Must've hit it by accident at some point this morning. So I got my 5k in in 31 minutes and change due to the heat: Currently 99 degrees F.

Daniel Messer was out running. He tracked 5.36 km in 35m:57s.

Cut it a little short today as I hope to get up to the gym after dinner and do some lifting. It's blissfully hot outside. I think we're finally hitting triple digits!

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."

Windows 10 System Requirements

Are you ready for Windows 10? Paul Thurrott drops the Windows 10 system requirements and, they're surprisingly light. Just like last time, if you have a computer running Windows 7 or 8, chances are you can run Windows 10.

Here is the PC hardware you will need to run Windows 10 when this new operating system upgrade arrives in late July.

Daniel Messer was out running. He tracked 5.77 km in 39m:25s.

Back camp stopped me right before the 6k. I think I know what the issue is so I'll sort it out by tomorrow. Not a bad run, just a bit more painful than I prefer.

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.

+Duane Shields Yes!  However, the Flash Gordon I was referring to is the '80s Movie;  Queen composed the theme song and soundtrack.  :)

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.

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.

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. :)
