I just added a little note about Spike, the networked clipboard, to my earlier technology post . But now that I’ve installed it I have to give it some more light. Simply stated, Spike is the sh!t. (Apple’s Rendezvous technology gets a lot of the credit too.) I’ve only used it for a few minutes… Continue reading You Have to Check Out Spike!
As you can see below, I just implemented a Radio.Blog on my site. I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a while but I just never got around to it and I hadn’t seen an application that looked simple enough to use. I was gonna go with Andromeda, but I was having issues… Continue reading No More Trader Mike, Now I’m DJ Mike
Notes on the new video game Lifeline, a way to decode iTunes AAC files, a custom iPod Mini car install, Kinja, SharpMT, Spike, the networked clipboard, SimpleViewer, and Amazon’s A9 search engine
I just caught up with the last two episodes of Pimp My Ride. As usual they were very entertaining, but I always come away with the same thought: “Why in the world would people put so much money into worthless cars?” The only possible exception to this was the ’67 Mustang. I was glad to… Continue reading Don’t Pimp My Ride

How is Riley gonna hate on Public Enemy? Clearly Huey needs to play ‘Rebel Without a Pause’ for him. (I think I see where this thread is headed…)
My boy Jon and I had just finished our bike ride this morning when a funny thing happened. We’re chillin’ by this rest area when two white women ride up. They say hello and one says “Oh, you’re those two guys who just zipped past us…” So I partake in a little small talk with… Continue reading I Know We All Look Alike, but Damn!
I’m just now catching up on a week’s worth of e-mails and came across a bunch of Boondocks that brought a well needed smile to my face. The end of the thread about The Passion of the Christ took me back to my college days. We had some very heated debates over whether or not… Continue reading The Boondocks Does It Again
Today marks the first anniversary of me creating my first weblog. I don’t know what took me so long to start a weblog in the first place. I’d been hearing about weblogs for some time, but never really looked into them. It wasn’t until I took a break from trading, while waiting for the Iraq… Continue reading It’s My Blogiversary!
