Free for all

Okay, so I’ve decided to open up comments to everyone, registered or not, and test out this akismet plugin.  If you want to prove you are who you say you are, registering is the best way to do so.  If you don’t care that someone could fake your name, then feel free to post your …

It was bound to happen eventually.

Hostopia Inc., the place I worked in Toronto immediately prior to my moving back to the Maritimes, has just been bought by a company based in Minnessota called Deluxe Corp., for $124 million.  I’m guessing that the financial company was looking to “diversify their portfolio”, as it were, and branch into website hosting. I knew …

I’m doing the unthinkable.

That’s right.  I’m selling my comic book collection. 51 comics from my early teens, mostly Superman and Spiderman, but some oddities I had picked up over the years like Ralph Snart, the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Jurassic Park comic-izations, and even a Bugs Bunny comic from 1978 that’s apparently worth $8 near-mint.  …

Firefox 3 is out

For those of you that are using Linux, you already know how to update Firefox — just use Update Manager and install any Firefox update that’s available.  For you poor souls on Windows, good luck — the download site has been a very slow site all day long.  And it’s no wonder — there have …

PHP safe mode shenanigans

I’m on my lunch break, and I’m a bit annoyed right now.  This morning I tried to install the pre-packaged Gallery installer that’s available in my website’s Plesk, and last week I tried to manually install Gallery2, both without success.  Apparently PHP Safe Mode is enabled on my server, meaning I can’t install either, since …

House

So, today we cleaned the house, I called a mortgage broker about getting a mortgage on a house, and House is on the teevee right now.  No seriously. Okay, I suppose we didn’t clean “the house”, so much as we cleaned our current place of residence, which is one half of a duplex in a …

Better late than never.

Senator Hillary Clinton has officially suspended her campaign and endorsed Barack Obama. While she was, right up until mere days before Obama clinched the nomination, claiming she’d take the nomination fight right through til Denver, she has realized that unfortunately the steam has run out for her campaign. Don’t get me wrong. Obviously I’m supporting …

Oh jeez, I got hope all over this blog.

Barack Obama just won the Democratic nomination.  He has earned enough delegates through the proportional primaries, caucuses and superdelegate nominations, to make the necessary 2118 delegate threshold.  The numbers as of the full 50 states having voted (and Democrats Abroad, Puerto Rico, Guam, and god knows who else, I can’t remember), from Daily Kos: Delegates: …
