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 [...]

Wrangling WordPress–need help

Wrangling WordPress–need help
As many of you know I’m doing some WordPress work and I’m bumping heads with the same issue over and over again… so I’m turning to my very smart, very resourceful and very helpful wordpress friends who I’m happy to suck up to in order to get help with the bane of my existence – CATEGORIES! Here’s the thing: I want a predictable way to know w [...]

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 [...]

Canon Support Is Pissing Me OFF!

Canon Support Is Pissing Me OFF!
Testing My New Palm Pre — Originally uploaded by LexnGer See that Canon camera in the photo? It went in for it's 4th servicing over 50 days ago. (Actually its 5th servicing but there was a mix up and I lost some of the paperwork, but that's another story.) This story is about the camera I bought in January 2009 that we [...]

Not Again!

Not Again!
Sure it looks like a photo of pasta in a shopping bag, but what is that stripe down the middle? It's the reason I am taking the camera BACK in for servicing. 4th time in 11 months. It has already been in for servicing for 4.5 months out of the 11 months I've owned it. Dear Canon, this is outrageous!

What I Hate About Christmas

What I Hate About Christmas
You know I'm a fan of the season. You've seen my myriad of posts about my father being Santa. You've chuckled under your breath as I march down the middle of Kensington Ave covered in ribbons and beating my drum for Festival of Lights. Even if I'm doing it alone in a windstorm. You’ve read about me skipping around and singing [...]

Commercial or Journalistic? You Tell ...

Commercial or Journalistic? You Tell Me
In the final episode of the Toronto Life Creative Commons drama, we have identified the issue to be a difference of opinion about what constitutes “Commercial Use”. After I sent in my letter to Toronto Life, I got a quick, respectful and reasoned response from Matthew Fox, Editor of TorontoLife.com. We have resolved the usage issue by Toront [...]

Non Means Non
Today I got the following Google alert telling me one of my photos had been used and accredited to me. Google Web Alert for: lexnger The new patios of summer ’09: Fresh grazing grounds for outdoorsy … May 11, 2009 … The new leisure class: Queen Street will benefit from some of the city’s new patios (Photo by Lex [...]

Dear Acid Reflux

Dear Acid Reflux
I know you’ve been around for years but why did you decide that this morning at 4:23am was the time to make yourself known? Oh sure, you can blame it on the stress. But who doesn’t have stress. I always have stress, or frankly I’d be asleep all the freaking time! Maybe you’ll point to the Timmies-Arbies-KFC combo that made up my meals that I [...]

Late Night On The Streets of Toronto

Late Night On The Streets of Toronto
On Sunday night, I boarded a train in Waterloo. Little did I know the adventure that awaited me Late Night on the Streets of Toronto… [For those of you who catch this "live" I am using this post to test a feature of CoverItLive - a live blogging tool I used to blog SES for OneDegree.ca]

You Should See The Other Guys

You Should See The Other Guys
You Should See The Other Guys — Originally uploaded by LexnGer I seem to have become a menace in the kitchen. Mainly to myself. For Valentine’s Day, I exploded a Pyrex pan out from under our beautiful Prime Rib and found myself standing on oven-hot shards of glass. In March, I branded my hand with mom’s convection ov [...]

The Books Are Coming NOW!

The Books Are Coming NOW!
OMG!!!!!!!!!!! The books are coming NOW.  I feel like my water just broke.  We were expecting them on Friday – and explicitly told our PM if they were coming early we needed at least 24 hours notice to get the help we needed to carry them up to our office. The phone rang an hour ago, as I was setting up the Advance Purchase PayPal butto [...]

They’re Back

They’re Back
I’m struggling with my landlords – not because they are bad people but because they are new and the building is very old. My primary struggle is that every week for the past month I’ve had 2 full days (at least) of workers needing access to my apartment and/or the roof.  This means I can’t work because they rando [...]

No Competition

No Competition
Yesterday as I was walking home from a wonderful lunch meeting with Mondo discussing life, business and photography I deeked into the LCBO on St. Clair West.  As you should already know, I have my S2 back so I’m taking pictures left, right, and centre, like the photoholic I am.  So, when I saw the ad for the “Amate [...]

My Morning.

My Morning.
Plumbers on the rooftop, Assistants on the deck, Electrician in the bathroom Alex on the phone.   Too many men, Too little Advil.

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 [...]
