Still in queue at IntenseDebate

Posted on

So I had planned on waiting to blog about this until it was all live, but, well, this is getting annoying. I’ve been looking into social commenting tools for a while now; Disqus and Intense Debate seem to be the two biggies at the moment. When I realized yesterday that Intense Debate had been purchased […]

A weird iPod Genius playlist bug

Posted on

Discovered this one last night: when I tapped the Genius icon to create a Genius playlist out of the currently-playing song, the playlist it created began with a different version of that song. It was repeatable, happened twice. In detail: I was playing “All the Way Home (live)” from Andrew Peterson’s Appendix M record. I […]

Reason #264 Best Buy is Evil:

Posted on

I need a SATA cable to hook up a new (to me) hard drive to the motherboard of a new (to me) computer. It looks something like this: I found them online from a reputable retailer for $1.99 each. I bought two. The retailer has a First Class USPS shipping option that only cost me […]

moving around

Posted on

So, it was time for a little blog reorganization. I’d started chrishubbs.com about a year ago, with the intent of posting more regularly there on topics surrounding the church plant. Well, we’re no longer at the church plant, so that doesn’t really make sense. In addition, my old scheme of having a place where my […]

How much experience have presidential and VP candidates had?

Posted on

A warning to my casual readers: this post is going to get more than a wee bit nerdy, and probably a bit political, too. OK, with that out of the way, let me note that one of the things that’s been bugging me ever since John McCain’s announcement of Sarah Palin as his VP choice […]

I tried Opera for a day

Posted on

No, Dad, regardless of the title, I’m not talking about Wagner or Puccini or that kind of opera… sorry. But with Firefox 3 coming out yesterday, I figured I’d be the contrarian and give that other browser a try; Opera was promising more features with version 9.5, and I hadn’t played with Opera in quite […]

Shared Posts on the Sidebar

Posted on

Some of my regular readers will remember that from time to time I’ll have link posts that will show up here; interesting things I’ve noted on the web and wanted to share. I’ve been notably inconsistent with that type of post, but still link some stuff from time to time. I was surprised, then, when […]

An equation of insanity

Posted on

So back in my Caedmon’s concert post, Daniel commented that he found the length of that road trip to see a concert “insane”. Being the nerd that I am, I decided an “equation of insanity” would be appropriate. (Geof’s equation of motivation was an additional piece of inspiration.) So, without further ado, the equation: I […]

Convergence: Death of a PDA, Expiration of a Cell Contract

Posted on

I’ve carried a PDA pretty much everywhere with me for the past several years; I think I’ve been through three different Palm models. My current one is a Palm Tungsten E2. I don’t use too many features on it, really; my primary uses are the calendar and a few games. The calendar is the biggie […]

The Doctor says: Don’t Blink

Posted on

I haven’t enjoyed a single episode of TV quite so much in a while. I’m a couple weeks behind on Dr. Who, but finally watched the episode called “Blink” tonight. A very, very good episode. [Spoilers ahead, so if you’re going to watch it and want to be surprised, don’t read on.] First of all, […]
