RANT: don’t have a good place to put this!

“Think about the last time you met someone new. What did you think of them? What did you tell yourself about what they thought of you?”

This is a tough one.

I don’t usually care what folks think of me.



Sadly, I’m a very shallow person. I only care what I think!

FOr example, there are two parents in a local dive with their two young children.

One younger girl and one slightly older boy.

“Celebrating” saint patricks DAY, with green face paint and hats.

Why do I feel that this is NOT what saint pat would want?

When I read all the jokes about the Irish, facebook posts, and assorted stuff, I think “pioneer society”.

Padriac, I am thinking of you.

I wonder if I’d have been better off following in your footsteps / example.

We’ll ever know.

I have this vision of hitting Saint Pete’s Gate and finding out what could have been?



IPAD: can’t interact with contacts from gmail client


From the natve GMAIL client on the IPAD, I can’t figure out how to save a contact.


AND, it apparently doesn’t support the native IOS address book.

I am really getting tired of having to maintain addresses.

Plaxo had promise but all they wanted was to spam, charge, and interfere.

Maybe I should write an X500 directory service.

LinkedIn, Facebook, and everyone else has a different agenda.

I just want one synced address book!



TECHNOLOGY: Computers … …

Here’s a great quote to inspire you to write:

“To err is human, but to really foul things up you need a computer.” – Paul Ehrlich

As a corollary of this, I came up with the idea of “negative progress”! I can screw up more in a wasted effort than any profess that I can make on a good day. 

seems so obvious to me, other than the concept of checkpoints, where one can fall back to a previously know good state, that one can actually “destroy” progress.

Given enough time, I am sure I can come up with examples, but who cares?
