Another threshold crossed Aug. 3rd, 2008 @ 10:45 pm
I crossed a threshold today. I purchased a 1 TB hard drive. In an external enclosure with USB, Firewire, and eIDE ports. It cost less (in actual dollars) than 1 MB of RAM in 1995 or so. And my first hard drive I bought back in 1990 was something like 40 MB.

It's got a lot of freakin' space, but it's necessary after I discovered that our XBox 360 can play video from pretty much any storage device plugged into the USB port. That'll make it easy to watch massive quantities of Doctor Who and Torchwood.

Cruise Photos finally up! Feb. 1st, 2008 @ 12:26 am

Originally uploaded by mattcwood
I have uploaded the first batch of photos from our cruise back in October to my Flickr site. I have a few more to add later that Leila took. For now, you'll have bear with mine from my crappy camera.

I've also added a few new images of Henri and Entropy that I took with my even crappier Palm Treo camera and I've reorganized my collections and sets to be a bit more logical.

X-tree, X-tree, read all about it Nov. 20th, 2007 @ 06:59 pm

» If you're really, really bored
I've been working on setting up picture and video accounts for public consumption:


Mostly stuff of my dogs and my miniatures. Not much of me or other people, since I'm usually the one holding the camera and most other people wouldn't appreciate having their pictures put online with having some say-so.
» Spam filter is busted
My Yahoo email spam filter works pretty well and I normally only get 2-3 actual spam messages in my Inbox a day. 99 times out of 100, I can easily trash them without even looking at them due to one of two factors: the FROM and/or SUBJECT headers are completely gibberish or it has it has a subject line that is quite obviously one of those long-lost-relative/overthown government funds/national lottery scam emails.

This one was different:

"It does not change any existing classes, functions or procedures."

I'm in I.T. I've been in I.T. my entire career. The sentence structure is odd, but that's not unusual since there are lots of non-native English speakers in I.T.


Oh, they want me to invest in junk stocks supposedly supporting wind farms. Okaaaaaayyyy...

The point of the story? There's not really one; I just thought it was an amusing and somewhat novel way to try and get computer folks to open their junk mail.
