Don’t trust iPhoto with your Flickr photos.

I found out yesterday that iPhoto, when integrated with Flickr, alters your sets based on iPhotos limitations and doesn’t let the user know. I’ve been using Flickr for years and have been very happy with it. Once Lily was born the number of photos I uploaded increased dramatically. I’ve now got nearly 900 Lily photos, […]

Alligators, giraffes, food and a good vacation.

Our vacation to Bonita Springs, Florida was a lot of fun. We got to hold an alligator, ride on air boats through the Everglades, feed a giraffe and we had more than enough food and drinks. While there was a threat of snow in Minnesota, we were relaxing by the pool in the upper 80s. Instead of cereal for […]

Life on just the iPad doesn’t work for me.

Well I made it though a week without my iMac. How did I do? Well…. not so good. I was doing fine for a few days. Granted it helped that Lily was sick and I had to sleep with her a few nights and that took away from my computer time. However I found it […]

Music I hate to admit that I saved.

Remember when we were younger and the music was awesome. Now we look back and don’t admit to liking it while secretly loving it because it brings back good memories? Well I’ve been going through my old CDs and deciding which ones to get rid of. If I’m on the fence about any, I just […]

And that’s why I don’t trust the weather man.

Last week I overheard a co-worker say that we were going to get a big storm in a week with a foot or more of snow. Then my wife heard it too. Seems it was all over the news. WCCO was reporting 12-15 inches possible, KSTP said 6+ and most other stations were reporting a […]

Testing out WordPress custom post formats.

I’ve been waiting for WordPress 3.1 to come out for months now. I was so excited for post formats as I thought that’d make my WordPress blog cool like my Tumblr blog. Turns out, maybe not. The first thing I forgot was that I’d have to update my theme to make them work. Not only […]

We now own a snow blower.

It took many years and many feet of snow, but I’ve finally given in and we got our first snow blower. I picked it up at Lowe’s earlier today and it barely fit into my car. But it rode in the passenger’s seat quite nicely. It turns out snow blowers are harder to find in […]

FedEx rocks at customer service while USPS fails.

I ordered a few things from Amazon the other day and they decided to ship them to me in three different packages so that I could get them sooner; which was really nice since I didn’t have to pay more. On Feb 9th I got notice that package 1 shipped. Feb 12th package 2 shipped. […]
