My Sandwich is Defective!

I got this sandwich at a local shop and didn’t notice until I got back home. They used the heel of the bread and faced it inward hoping I wouldn’t notice. Well, I didn’t at first. Such a stupid way to lose a customer. I’m sure they would replace it but I can’t believe this … Continue reading My Sandwich is Defective!

Stupid Fake Scanlines Are Annoying

If you’ve ever watched reality TV shows or many video games these days you’ve probably seen them… The simulated scanlines. It’s the ‘indicator’ TV producers use to let viewers know they are watching camera footage. Umm… I’m watching TV so isn’t it all camera footage. I hate stupid fake scanlines. They’re distracting and unnecessary. Millions of dollars were spent … Continue reading Stupid Fake Scanlines Are Annoying

Experiencing Google’s Gboard.

UPDATE Since original post date: Most of the (very few) issues I had with g-Board in the beginning that I write about here have been addressed. I have not had time to do a rewrite so some of this info is out of date… But the review was mostly positive, anyway. Gboard is a good product … Continue reading Experiencing Google’s Gboard.

The Err of Erred Error Windows

I have been collecting strange error message and dialog boxes for a while now. I used to work in software development and have collected quite a few while debugging unreleased programs but those aren’t the ones I’m listing in this blog post. As amusing as they are, those don’t count because they were apps still … Continue reading The Err of Erred Error Windows

Idioms I wish would disappear… Plus some words I actually like

This is not even close to a complete list but I didn’t want to go on too long. Plus it’s dinner time. I made this list being fully aware that I might have some annoying speech habits as well. In no particular order… Idioms I am tired of: “So big it can be seen from … Continue reading Idioms I wish would disappear… Plus some words I actually like

The Birds… Planning their attack on my house.

Hundreds of birds took over the trees at my house today. I grabbed my cell phone and videoed it. It’s hard to tell from this video but they were so loud we had to turn the TV up louder. We’ve been here 10 years and have never seen this before. It’s only at these two … Continue reading The Birds… Planning their attack on my house.

Comment spammer dumped entire spam template into one comment… oops!

WTF?!?! Some spammer/script-bot just dumped their entire spam template data into my comments section on this blog. Clearly, this was some sort of bug or mistake. What idiots! The ip address resolved to Guangdong, Zhaoqing, China. I have pasted it in it’s entirety below; unedited with all it’s bad spelling and grammar. I left the name … Continue reading Comment spammer dumped entire spam template into one comment… oops!

What the heck is a hedera?

I was watching “Last Man Standing” tonight.  One of the main characters mentioned something about a punctuation mark called a hedera.  I thought, “What the heck, Google? Why don’t I know what that means?” So Google said, “Go read a book…” or something like that. Naw… Actually, Google sent me to the ol’ Wiki-P which … Continue reading What the heck is a hedera?
