Living in the Future

I still find it tremendously cool to SSH into my server box to iptables drop a malicious IP from my phone in a park. It is also cool to be able to blog about it at the same time. Also on:Facebook Twitter

Questions for Podcasters

Hey fellow podcasters, I am setting up two new podcast sites right now. I get to start over clean without all the cruft of my EGC site. If you had to do it all over again, what WordPress podcasting plugin would you use? I have tried a number of them over time and am not […]

Server Fun

FYI, if you noticed and were wondering why my various sites have been down so much … there is a story. I noticed lots of reboots starting this afternoon, and this evening I found that the site would only stay up for 1 minute at a time. It would reboot so much that Linode would […]

One Million Spams

Sometime in the next 24 hours, I expect that my blog will cross an important threshold. That will be 1,000,000 spams blocked by Akismet. Thanks guys. If it took 1 second to deal with each one of those, I would have spent 11.5 days of my last decade handling them. I appreciate not having to […]


Antony Johnston and the Incomparable Network

I am a fan of Antony Johnston’s comic The Fuse and have read some of his work on series like Daredevil. I listened to the episode of Surviving Creativity on which he was a guest, which was how I found out about his podcast Unjustly Maligned on the Incomparable podcast network. I love the high […]

Henry Rollins and Silly String

I haven’t been in the best mood this week, but this video of Henry Rollins being shot with silly string by his assistant just made me laugh and laugh. I have started listening to their podcast, and looking at that page I ran across this. Funny stuff. Also on:Twitter

Podcast Moment from the Early Days

Chuck Tomasi sent me this photo that he found from the first New Media Expo (called I think the Podcast and Portable Media Expo or something like that.) There are four early podcasters visible in the shot. I’m not sure about the cats in the background, if you can identify them let me know. Cool, […]

Matt and Mattingly Goofiness

From a recently listened-to episode of Matt and Mattingly’s Ice Cream Social: Matt Donnelly: “What is that stuff on fancy cakes, the shiny decorative balls?” Paul Mattingly: “Fondant?” Matt: “No, I’m still looking.” That one made me laugh like a fool. They really snuck that one in. Also on:Facebook Twitter
