Well, my photo doesn't quite do the "Blood Moon" justice, but I was excited that my 1:45 a.m. alarm was rewarded with a spectacular view of this morning's lunar eclipse (seemed unlikely given it was cloudy and snowing when I went to bed). This is from Beach Park in Maple Bluff.

No pussyfooting around (or surprise) here...

Wow, this hard drive shortage is no joke. Tried to buy some HDs from Dell for a server we wanted to add storage to and you can't buy single HDs -- they're saving them for server sales. No ETA on when they'll be able to sell HDs again, either.

Because Larry Ellison's a jerk, that's why! Though HP's dysfunction does make it an easy target...

I guess I'm a BlackBerry person. I tried the Moto Droid3 out for a couple days, didn't like it, so now it's back to the comfort of the familiar, albeit outdated, "CrackBerry." Nothing like getting a new phone to make you appreciate your old one.

Suggested marketing slogan for Verizon: "Even more evil than AT&T, but with a more reliable network!"

I was shopping for a new cell phone for my mother-in-law, and Verizon is now pre-installing adware on new phones (specifically the LG Cosmos and LG Octane). And like true adware, you can't uninstall it: http://theusualsusspects.com/blog/2011/05/verizon-daily-scoop-scam/

Apparently, the best texting phone (phone with keyboard that's not a smartphone) you can buy for Verizon right now is a 2-yr old model. Used. (Sorry, "certified pre-owned"). The LG env3. Well done, Verizon!
