That pale blue dot…

Go fullscreen, turn off the lights, and put on your headphones for this one.

Getting back on the horse

I’ve been very remiss in posting to my blog. It’s been sitting mostly fallow for years. Well, that ends now. I’ll be posting at least once a week with updates. Whether they’re about me personally or insight/thoughts on what’s going on with the world, tech, or entertainment.

Carl Sagan on our place in the Universe

“Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there–on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”

Jack London on Death

“Life is a strange thing. Why this longing for life? It is a game which no man wins. To live is to toil hard and to suffer sore, till old age creeps heavily upon us and we throw down our hands on the cold ashes of dead fires. It is hard to live. In pain the babe sucks his first breath, in pain the old man gasps his last, and all his days are full of trouble and sorrow; yet he goes down to the open arms of death, stumbling, falling, with head turned backward, fighting to the last. And death is kind. It is only life and the things of life that hurt. Yet we love life and we hate death. It is very strange.”
― Jack London

Test post via WP7

So, there I was poking around the Windows Phone marketplace when I see the WordPress app. Well sir, I downloaded it, installed it, and here we are!

Posting via the iPad!

So, we’ve got an iPad here in the office and I’m trying it out for a day before I need to give it back to Art, my boss, who was kind enough to let us play with his new toy for a few days. I downloaded the iPad WordPress app and it’s easy to type with and I’m not really having any issues using it in landscape mode.

I’ve checked out a few of the “killer” iPad apps like Netflix and the ABC app and they’re
Wicked cool!

Stay tuned tomorrow when I do my weekly D&D post, in the meantime check out the iPad if you get a chance!

Another Proof of Concept, now with more Facebook!

So, again, here I am with the second post in 10 minutes.  I should really come up with more content for my site, huh?  If you have any suggestions for what you’d like to see my post about, whether it be tech, book, gaming (pen/paper or Xbox), or whatever, leave me a comment!

This is a proof of concept

I’m working with a coworker on a blog that he manages and wanted to show him some of the functionality of Windows Live Writer so you may see a weird post or two.  Not that I don’t already post weird stuff anyway…

iPhone post

Just testing out posting via the iPhone. While I doubt I’ll use this functionality very often, it’s a nice way to post something if I NEED to…
