You go that way, I go this way

Lenovo's lean, mean inking machine

Lenovo had several ThinkPads certified as "semi-rugged" including the X200 Tablet PC. Suck it, wuss notebooks!

Microsoft hits Ctrl+z

See, I knew those severance overpayments wouldn't sink the company.

Oh yeah, Homer's okay

Fixed and back to his normal routine like it never happened.

Odd email morning

Woke up to find no new emails overnight, when usually I get some ecommerce items. Then at work, I find nothing new over the weekend. I am getting new mail, and other mailboxes I check are normal. Just a very odd (but welcomed) start to the week.

I'm a conspiracy theorist. Cool.

Not sure it can really be called a conspiracy theory when someone takes credit, as Intel has done with coining the "netbook" term, but Sam Johnston is calling me a conspiracy theorist nonetheless. He offers a rational counterpoint to my arguments, but unfortunately his support for what he thinks is my fatal flaw is itself flawed.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it...

...unless it's a pet. Yep, poor Homer's at the vet today for neutering.

Another ink blog find

Should have stuck this with the previous one, but too late now. Must check out the ink at Deus Ex Why Zed.

New ink blog find

*거북2* - Korean but the blog is in English. Must investigate later.

The winner is Uncle Julio's

In case you've been following the "happy hour" thoughstream, we've settled on Uncle Julio's for today's event (Reston location, of course). Going to miss the MVP phone conference, and we had to reschedule Homer's vet visit. Weird how things tend to fall on the same day.

Extra 2 mins of battery life!

I suspect this may be a typo, but who knows? Maybe another two minutes
of battery life on top of two hours is a tipping point for consumers.

Finally, something about Windows 7 that interests me

I must admit, I'm just not that into Windows 7. But that was before detailed information on handwriting recognition was published. Not as sexy as the new visuals and taskbar system, but obviously HWR is of great interest to me. Via GottaBeMobile.

Why do I smell donuts?

Been sitting in my office smelling donuts when there are none. Instead
there's just orange peel in a popcorn bag. Must be a fragrance-mixing
phenomenon.

I'm not the only one with raccoons

It seems like not a day goes by that doesn't give me more to like about President Obama. First, he got flak for not wearing a jacket in the White House; I don't like jackets either. Now, he's got raccoons. Once again, I can relate.

Silver Diner rocks (& rolls)

Veggie chili and salad combo is great with a side of fries (and a
milkshake).

Trying generic drink mix

In my quest to quench my occasional fruit punch craving, I am giving
generic mix a try. Conclusion: Not the smartest thing I've done.

Like working on Saturday

Referring to the absence of personnel due to our big mid-winter meeting, my boss hopped excitedly into my office and exclaimed "It's like working on Saturday!" I used to work on Saturdays. It sucked. Not excited about feeling like I'm working on Saturday.

Making an orange creme Tootsie Roll

Software pirate gets pirated...

...and cries about it like, well, someone who had his software pirated. I wonder if those Somalian pirates cry like this when someone steals their stuff. Full ridiculous exchange on Gizmodo.
