Bad Day for Clarks + Tech

Bad Day for Clarks + Tech
So as I was about to write and tell you all about how my father dropped his cell phone in a glass of whisky, this happened. Bad Day for Clarks + Tech — Originally uploaded by LexnGer I was going to make comments about dad's mishap like:  how he should treat the phone as if it had a hangover and give it a couple of cups [...]

Missing the Basketmobile

Missing the Basketmobile
Two weeks ago, we were working our asses off. My primary joy in each day was waking up and cycling to our new office, and at the end of the day getting on the basketmobile and cycling home.  I love biking in the morning when the tree-lined streets are dappled with sun and the birds are singing, and again late at night when the empty stre [...]

A Different Kind of Sick

A Different Kind of Sick
I’m sick but for the first time in a while, I don’t mind. It’s not that I’m only a little sick. Nope, my fever hasn’t dipped below 100 for days. It’s not that I like being sick, because I don’t.  it’s just that for the first time in a long time, I know it’s not going to last. As many of you already know 2009 was kind of disaster for me f [...]

"Too Late" She Cried, And Waved Aloft Her Wooden Leg.
As I exited College Park, I saw there was a woman behind me in a wheelchair, so I held the door. She came straight at me. “I was going to hold the door for you,” she said. “You are limping. Did you go to the doctor yet?” “Yes, I’m just coming from him”, I replied, thinking how kind (yet slightly invas [...]

My Camera Did WHAT?

My Camera Did WHAT?
My Camera Did WHAT? — Originally uploaded by LexnGer My camera has been doing some really cool glitches lately. Photos I’ve been describing as Corduroy Photos. But at Pride on Saturday I started getting more & more Corduroy Shots and less & less shots I’d call “good”. Most annoying when a glittery purp [...]

A Little Brain Surgery

A Little Brain Surgery
A good part of last week was spent attempting to fix my laptop. Much thanks to Marc and Paul who both offered direction and advice. Careful analysis built to detailed diagnosis. Detailed diagnosis to iterative investigation.  Iterative investigation lead to extensive exploration which moved to heavy handed hacki [...]

What’s Up

What’s Up
Or more accurately, what’s not up. My laptop is misbehaving.  It won’t boot.  Luckily we’ve been able to remove the hard drive and successfully do a full backup of all my current files (including the CheapEats Ottawa database -phew!) However, the bl***ping thing still won’t successfully complete the [...]

PMO

PMO
Waking up with a blinding headache this morning… pissed me off. The loud noise the fax machine made when I turned it on to fax my accountant early this morning… pissed me off. The first and second message from my accountant looking for documents that should already be in the 2003 files but now I’ll have to locate and dig out [...]

Here’s What I Want

Here’s What I Want
I want: a spam filter that will pre-screen all the annoying a#k!*U&@*^@*~@#)*s who are filling up my CheapEats databases with restaurant recommendations for places named “Free Ring Tones”, “Viagra” and “kdfjkdjfkdeoerpdl” a query to help me clean up the 3,000+ restaurant recommendations that are prob [...]

The Last Photo I’ll Take

The Last Photo I’ll Take
Not because I think it’s brilliant and the pinnacle of my photographic career. Not because I’ve acknowledge my addiction and am on the road to recovery. Not because I’m refocusing my energy on personal growth, business development or even spiritual enlightenment. No, it’s because of the dreaded E18 error which has lef [...]

Identify Theft – Problem or Opp...

Identify Theft – Problem or Opportunity?
So, now that my id has been stolen and I’ve canceled all my credit  cards, I have to deal with the potential identity theft.  Canceling and replacing all the identification that’s been stolen. It certainly raises a series of interesting questions: Does that mean I don’t exist right now? What if I decide not to reclaim my i [...]

Thank God the Weekend is Over!

Thank God the Weekend is Over!
After a weekend like mine there is very little you can say but "thank god it's Monday!" Let's skip over the crazies that seemed to be loud and proud everywhere I went on the weekend – including outside my window banging and screaming all night, every night, as I tried to fall asleep.  Let's skip over the str [...]

Harvesting Art

Harvesting Art
Back on the river today to fix my mistakes. Yesterday I hung art on the 50paces tree -> the 500paces tree. Then I walked to the 1000paces tree and hung photos to the 550paces tree. Well almost. There are actually 21 trees meaning the last tree is the 1050 tree.  So as of this morning the 1050paces tree is all decked out in 1000paces photos [...]

CBC Morning

CBC Morning
To be in town for a 7:45am interview, I needed to meet Sandy at the store between 7am and 7:10am. Not so big a deal if I hit the river at 6:40am with the dogsled. Well that is if the dogs bother to move slightly faster than molasses. They didn’t. Then they dumped of on my ass halfway down the hill. Twice. When I pointed out they were ba [...]

Have I told you about the lovely summer day when we went to the car show with the inlaws? I walked through the field of classic cars shooting as many as possible while hearing my FIL tell me how great a classic car calendar would be. A scheme was born – a customized classic car calendar poster just for him.  Perfect for his desk a [...]
