    A Simple Solution

    I have worked in technology for just over seventeen years.  Sometimes for free, overwhelmingly paid. I’ve worked on every version of Microsoft’s Windows and DOS platforms, every version of Apple’s System and OS X platforms, and a wide range of ports of the UNIX/Linux platforms.  I’ve worked with every iteration of Apple’s iPhone and iPad lines, and quite a few of their Powerbook/iMac/MacBook systems.

    The Brilliance of the Big Picture

      Donald Trump has become a leading candidate, holding onto sizable poll numbers and a massive amount of attention from the electorate and the media in general.  It’s an odd decision, from a guy who made no noises or moves to garner support or set up early-voting teams at any point in the past two years, to decide that he should jump in with both feet | Read More »

    Miami Herald Reviews V, Can’t Resist Obscene Reference

    Once, just once I’d love to see someone in the Downstream Media speak of Tea Party Protestors without making a disgusting sexual reference. Somehow, it’s perfectly fine to refer to those of us who are appalled at The Light-Bringer’s “apre moi, le deluge” use of taxpayer funds on whatever his pretty little head can conceive, in a manner any decent person, regardless of politics, would condemn | Read More »

    Christie in Newark

    Chris Christie and his running mate, Kim Guadagno, stopped in Newark’s tony Forest Hill neighborhood last night, a neighborhood historically bluer than my jeans. The crowd was a healthy mix of lifelong Democrats, including a fair amount of Obama supporters and voters, and party-line Republicans, but you wouldn’t know it from the way everyone meshed together and happily celebrated before, during, and after his speech. | Read More »
