Cleaning a Mighty Mouse

July 24th, 2007 · Comments Off on Cleaning a Mighty Mouse

I recently acquired a wireless Apple Mighty Mouse for work. It replaced my trusted wired Logitech that i’d used to the point of button failure. I was skeptical at first but — the Bluetooth works amazingly, the mouse right/left clicking mechanism is perfect and the scroll wheel works well enough for my tastes. Someone had […]

Stay away from Stadig in Wells

July 24th, 2007 · 3 Comments

I was going to write this long post bemoaning the service we received at Stadig campground in Wells, Southern Maine last weekend, but I’ll keep it short and simple. We were flat out lied too, told we couldn’t stay one night that we have reserved and paid for, tricked into playing more, and then upon […]

We finally got a Wii

July 14th, 2007 · 5 Comments

After causally asking about them in multiple stores downtown over the past 8 months (once a month) only to be told they were completely sold out making it one of the hardest items to buy in Montreal, last night I was at futureshop researching a new camera and checking out the latest DS games and […]

Elder surfboards

July 12th, 2007 · 3 Comments

We got a mini-site up for Johan — something that he could mange himself through some basic HTML work, WordPress 2 and Flickr for photo galleries. Hopefully I’ll be able to put a little bit more design time into it as Johan slowly builds it up. Johan, as most of you know, is he one […]

Plank picked me up a bunch of slick accessories for my new Macbook Pro 2.4 LED. It’s probably the biggest change I’ve made in my computing habits in years. One thing is that using it with second monitor when I’m at my desk; it’s sits low compared to the 2nd screen and has to sit […]

Surfing dolphins

July 11th, 2007 · 1 Comment

I know that one day I’ll be surfing somewhere — I’ll see a fin/dark shape pass under me, and I hope that that day, it’s a Dolphin. This story from an UK newspaper is cool. Photo is even better. Dolphins are the worlds best surfers. “Many visitors to Australia have two particular things on their […]

Deathly Hallows

July 9th, 2007 · 2 Comments

A friend just emailed me to let us know that our copies of Harry Potter have been billed, boxed, stamped and addressed for delivery on July 21st. We pre-ordered 3 hard-cover copies for 70$. I’m actually re-reading Book 6 cause I’m such a nerd. Two things that caught my eye while searching for a nice […]

Cloud surfing

July 9th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Kinda a fun story, but it’s really the photos that make it spectacular! I’ve uploaded them here (700k large image) as I can’t find them from a public source. “Who’d ever guess you could surf clouds just like surfing ocean waves? You won’t get wet but you’ll need a hang glider instead… Just a couple […]

Laske’s Beach Chair

July 5th, 2007 · Comments Off on Laske’s Beach Chair

The beauty of simplicity, usability, and aesthetics combined — When looking at this chair, You just know that Larry gets it. He’s sat on the beach. He’s probably even bought one of those cheap folding chairs and found it clunky and ugly before conceiving this. Actually, I don’t know — but this is the kind […]
