Make Your Own Custom T-Shirts With Bleach & Freezer Paper

Very cool and relatively simple. Since it's using freezer paper you don't even need to be artistic, just find an outline to print off the internet.

The Unbearable Cuteness of Kitten

See I'm just a cute little kittycat. I'm not really a devilish spawn of satan who will lick your food, knock over your drinks and jump on you in the middle of the night when you're sleeping.

Motorola's new phones sound good but I'm still waiting to hear if/when Sprint will carry them.

Yeah, +Eoghann Irving​, I'm pretty sure I'm on the wrong side of this sizing trend. But I'm eagle eyed with medium sized hands and I find phablets ridiculous. Oh well.

Questions to ponder...

Just what does a slithy tove look like and how does it differ from a non-slithy tove?

According to Humpty Dumlty in Alice Through the Looking Glass - where Jabberwocky first appears:

'Slithy' means 'lithe and slimy'
Which given that:
'Toves' are something like badgers, they're something like lizards, and they're something like corkscrews. [...] Also they make their nests under sun-dials, also they live on cheese.
Is rather an intriguing image...

However, I suspect you know that. ;)

Alice is almost compulsory reading on this side of the Atlantic (UK), and references from it are reasonably common.

+Jeff Sereno You can kind of drag windows - win+tab > drag the preview to the required desktop.

It's not very slick but it works. What it really needs is ctrl+shift+win+arrow to bump windows between desktops

Using my Amiga was a pleasure in a way Windows or Macintosh has never been.

The reason it was so responsive - it felt like a sporstcar, and no Windows PC I have ever owned comes near that responsiveness - was a combination of very high priority for user initiated interrupts, and general software priority on any user activity. On an Amiga, the user never waited. Ever. User trumps machine processes, every time.

A little disappointed with +Fitbit​​ right now. After only 5 months of use the band on the Charge is separating from the device. Just emailed their Support, let's see what they have to say.

Introduction
How do I...
It's a Gaelic spelling of Ewan. Phonetically you would say you-an.


Summary:
Born in Scotland, living in the United States. Two sons. One wife. Two sisters. I have opinions on everything and a store of largely useless knowledge that I like to share with as many people as possible.

If there's a social network site, I've probably signed up and used it. If it's a software, I've installed it. Jack of many trades. Master of few.

Interests:
  • Computers & Gadgets
  • Science Fiction & Fantasy
  • Comic books
  • Photography
  • Movies
  • Books
  • Television
  • Hiking
  • Android
  • Aspergers
  • Depression
What Do You Post About?

Mostly you're going to see links to news items for Science Fiction and Fantasy movies, tv etc. Some reviews from my blog. Photos I've taken (always looking for feedback). Plus some general tech news.

Amongst those there may be some quick status posts of what I'm up to, or maybe some thoughts on G+ and social networking in general.

I do occasionally post "political" links, but I have no interest in left/right  democrat/republican/libertarian political discussions. Similarly I only discuss religious matters with close friends. I consider that a personal matter.

What About Work?

I don't intend this to be a work driven account particularly, but just to make my profile comprehensive. I have worked in a number of different fields:
  • Computer Training Consultant
  • Database Developer (integrating with websites)
  • Procurement Specialist
  • Contracts Specialist
  • Unit Manager
  • Director of Operations
As a result I have a wide range of skills that can be applied to many different situations.

Skills:
  • Touch Typing
  • Office Software Training
  • PHP, Perl, ASP, SQL, HTML, CSS, Javascript
  • Database Design
  • Technical Writing
  • Blogging
  • Management & Team Building
  • Procurement & Purchasing
  • Contracts Management

Having twins makes for challenging birthdays. So this year we decided to take advantage of one of the birthday packages that Pump It Up offers and the experience was great. For those who aren't familiar they're an indoor kids activity playground (bouncy slides, bouncy obstacle courses, bouncy bouncers!). We got a 90 minute package for 15 kids and pretty much the only thing we had to do was bring the cake (or cupcakes in our case). The friendly staff helped us bring the cupcakes in from the car and helped keep the boys occupied since we arrived a good 20 minutes early. When our timeslot came, not all of the guests had arrived, but we were able to go in and spend the time with the boys while the staff again handled the later arrivals, right down to making sure the presents were taken care of. We chose a Superhero theme package so the boys got to pick their superhero names and engage in some other games. Of course all the equipment was popular. One of my sons has aspergers and when the excitement got to much and he had a melt down, the staff handled it wonderfully. They stayed calm, checked with us to see if we needed any help and made sure that we felt no pressure. Basically he was able to expend his tantrum in the safety of one of the pieces of equipment and once he was back in control, out he came to join the rest of the group. The last half hour of the party was in one of their party rooms where two blow-up "thrones" had been set up for the birthday boys to sit in (wearing capes, masks and blow up crowns no less). This was popular of course. And once again we didn't have to do anything. The staff set out the food, made sure the kids had what they need and tidied up afterwards. All in all a great party for the boys and their friends and no stress for us.

I've always liked this park for its size and variety. But since the county took it over there's been a significant improvement in the play areas for children with all new equipment installed.

Great theater. Comfortable seats, lots of leg room, easy to see over the other customers. Food is decent. Ticket prices are surprisingly low.
