Yeah, I'm sitting in my office listening to Nickelback way too loud while I install Bioperl. Don't judge me.

It's not for me, it's for a friend. I swear. I don't use Perl.

This thing is pretty nifty and that it survived 1200 years got me thinking, what would someone say about something I made if they dig it up in 1200 years? Some sample quote from possible articles about my artifact 1200 years from now:

"Scholars are befuddled as dating this has proven difficult. The wood seems to be from a period with modern tooling and computer assisted machining, however, the tooling marks imply that the builder seems to have had a skill level on par with chimpanzees of the same era..."

Turkish archaeologists excavating a harbor site on the European side of the Bosphorus have unearthed a 1,200-year-old wooden object which they claim is the ancient equivalent of a tablet computer. The device was a notebook and tool — in one.

So ingenious! I wonder what wood species this was made from to be preserved  in such good condition for 1,200 years.  Great artifact discovery.

Dear +State of Utah: Utah.gov ,

It's great that we now have a law against using or dialing or whatever a phone while driving. However, on my walk home yesterday (roughly 3 miles, a dozen intersections) I had one driver on the phone have to stop abruptly mid-intersection when they finally noticed me in the crosswalk and a couple of others be completely surprised by me as they maintained their phone conversations while making a right turn. 

Clearly these people don't believe this will be enforced. It's time to start writing tickets. Lots of them. Those of us who frequent crosswalks on foot would greatly appreciate it. 

Thanks,

griznog

Dear Google Apps,

Sometimes people send me files that are pure text files, in the old pre-Unicode sense. It'd be great if Chrome, Gmail and Docs could figure these out in the absence of a mime-type for the file extension and display them in a paging text viewer. 

Thanks,

griznog

p.s. I said "sometimes" but what I really meant was "a lot of the time." It turns out that despite what all the cool kids are saying, a file with nothing but ASCII characters is still a handy tool. Regardless of the file extension.

Whenever I have a reason to be in or around Miami, I always make my way to this bakery. The pastries are delicious and the people are very nice. Prices are unbelievable before you taste what you picked out, afterwards you feel a little guilty for robbing them, but not guilty enough to stop you from making another pass for just one more of everything. Also, get a glass of the fresh squeezed orange juice, you won't regret it.
