Another intermittent status update

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

Well… with the help of the Akismet WordPress plugin I have just cleaned up several years and over a thousand spam comments!!!!

Though I’m not sure that means much unless I start posting here more regularly.

That was a long dry spell

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Just a quick post to stir the dust.

I am starting to use this blog as bit of a sandbox to trial and play with some tools that I am considering for various purposes elsewhere (such as over here where I still have an old temporary version of the tepromark website.)


It gave me shivers

Reminded me forcefully of leaving my love at Pearson Airport in Toronto… Nearly 5 years ago.

I only wish there had been no Terminal 1.

USPS Postal News: Free Recycling Through the Mail

USPS Postal News: Free Recycling Through the Mail:

Postage is paid for by Clover Technologies Group, a nationally recognized company that recycles, remanufactures and remarkets inkjet cartridges, laser cartridges and small electronics. If the electronic item or cartridges cannot be refurbished and resold, its component parts are reused to refurbish other items, or the parts are broken down further and the materials are recycled. Clover Technologies Group has a “zero waste to landfill” policy: it does everything it can to avoid contributing any materials to the nation’s landfills.

The really important part of this is that Chicago is one of the test cities. But first I want to see if I can get my busted electronics (Sony Ericsson v505 with a dead screen, iPod Photo 60GB with a dead harddrive) fixed and thus useful again, as I’d rather give away working toys to family or for that matter continue to use them myself.

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of flying

Monday, April 7th, 2008

 From the Leader-Post:

Flying back to Regina on the weekend, I came up with a few ideas I believe would dramatically improve airport security and efficiency, while creating a more interesting in-flight environment.

First, and most importantly, I think everyone should be forced to fly naked without luggage.

Traveling with your co-workers  or parents might be a little awkward. Would the flight staff be naked too?

Mother of All Wine Runs | SAIL.IE

Thursday, April 3rd, 2008

SAIL.IE has an interesting article about a guy who has made some pretty hefty investments in shipping wine by sailboat. I find this hugely appealing for so many reasons.

I wish I had more to say about it but, really I just want to be able to buy some!

Oh. Notice that they’ll be shipping to Canada starting this summer!
