Getting out 2: The saga continues

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007 by calixton

So, the San Francisco Ferry Building got a $100 million makeover and now looks like, well, a million bucks. Maybe 10 million bucks. (I guess it’s hard to imagine what a 100 million bucks is supposed to look like.) All in all the refurb is pretty amazing and gives Bay Area folks a moderately upscale […]

Getting out

Monday, January 22nd, 2007 by calixton

There’s nothing like getting out and experiencing something different to show you that you’re completely boring. For instance, I was running late this morning and missed my train by a few minutes. So, I had to sit in the station for an hour until the next train came. Now, like it or not, the station […]

Half-a-year ago one of my train-riding cohorts, Programmer K, asked if I’d seen the documentary An Inconvenient Truth, a.k.a. the Al Gore movie. I said, “No, but I’d like to.” P.K, intent on supporting global warming and our town’s newly-refurbished theatre… actually, it was probably education about global warming… Anyway, he implored me to get […]

New blog just like the old blog

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007 by calixton

Those of you who used to peruse the old Transit blog may have wondered what happened to it (i.e. why the last post was on March 14, 2005). Well, the main reason for the dearth and eventual complete lack of posts can be laid solely at the feet of iBlog. No pun intended. You know, […]
