The llama never gets a break

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

The llama’s ass will continue to get whipped! You know, I used to despise AOL, but now I don’t. Now I see them as the corporate auto-Robin-Hood that they truly have been. Thanks to their unique combination of cash reserves, hubris and goofiness, AOL have managed to absorb the difference between the grotesque over-valuation of […]

“What is ‘RSS?’”  Pooh asked, as if he’d forgotten how to use a search engine, which once again, he had. “It’s short for ‘Rich Site Summary’” said Christopher Robin, though he liked to tell people it meant “Really Simple Syndication.” But he just couldn’t be mean to his friend like that. “All the new information […]

Pedal Mod – Ibanez LA Metal

What if you need to run a cable from here:   Through this channel in the basement ceiling:   So that it comes out this hole ~20 feet away: Well, here at the netdud compound, this is a job for Remote Controlled Racer X!  

Long Live the Penmachine.

http://www.penmachine.com/2011/05/the-last-post Derek Miller was the epitome of a good guy, and the world is poorer for his passing. We were not close friends, but I knew him for many years–briefly in person–mostly through unfailingly helpful, well-though-out and supportive replies to my rambling pleas for information. This is the only time I can think of when […]
