Seen the other day…

Thursday, June 12th, 2008 by calixton

…on the street in front of our building (at work). It’s gone now. Don’t know who put it there or who they put it there for. I think the critter might be some sort of hamster. Or, since there’s no reference scale, maybe a hippo.

WWDC 2008 starts today!

Monday, June 9th, 2008 by calixton

And, what, exactly, is WWDC, you ask? WWDC is Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference. And, why, exactly, should we care about Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, you ask? Macworld.com has some reasons. But, to save you a click, everyone is champing at the bit for iPhone 2, and WWDC seems like the likely candidate for the product […]

Albany is not the capital of New York

Sunday, June 8th, 2008 by calixton

Well, there is an Albany that is the capital of New York, but there’s also an Albany in the Bay Area (south of El Cerrito and north Berkeley) that isn’t. And, while I don’t know much about either Albany (besides the capital/not capital thing), I now know a good place to have a drink and […]

Thursday, but no Lost

Thursday, June 5th, 2008 by calixton

Crud. What are we supposed to do on Thursday nights now? Until 2009, I mean. I suppose you could look at the bright side—Lost returning in February 2009 gives you eight months to stock up on DHARMA Initiative products for your Season 5 premiere party. Yeah. Well, here’s a labeling project: DHARMA Initiative Peanuts. You […]

…Miss T and I went to Harry’s Cafe in Sac. I was starving while sitting in the dentist chair. Miss T and I were headed into Sacramento for some cosplay (!) supplies so Harry’s was a logical (and delicious) choice. We really <3 Harry’s. Say, what’s the opposite of <3? Is it </3? Maybe <X3? […]

DAV in the morning…

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008 by calixton

…where DAV is the Amtrak station code for Davis, California. Amtrak station codes are not the same as the three-letter IATA airport codes you see on your baggage tags (e.g. SFO, SAN, HON). In the case of Davis, it makes sense, since there’s no airport at the train station. UC Davis has an airport, but, […]

Lost without Lost

Monday, June 2nd, 2008 by calixton

Ah, Lost, what are we going to do without you for the next 8 months? It’s possible to relive all four seasons online at abc.com, and Seasons 1 through 3 have been conveniently collected into DVD box sets, of course. If you don’t have the time to re-watch all 70+ hours of Seasons 1 through […]
