Tidbits :: Saturday, August 22, 2009

Matt Haughey on The entrepreneurial case for national healthcare: “I don’t see how someone could be strongly pro-business and not see an upside to extending the already existing national healthcare for seniors down to age zero. How many more Googles, Facebooks, and Twitters are we missing with the way things are?”
“I guess all Finnish summer sports were invented by drunk people.” – Harri Kinnunen in the BBC’s article on Finland’s passion for crazy contests. Photos.

Waves at Y’all

Sorry folks, I have meant every day this week to write up one of the five ‘to do’ blog posts that I want to write, posts on mobile, development, and online trolls, as well as the future thereof. But… the mighty but, I am on deadline for a client application and have had family dinners and the like, so I have been too stretched to also spend a few hours writing something of moderate quality. I have written a few drafts, unpublished, middling to bad quality, but no. No, I want to write coherent posts…
In the meantime, I leave you with photos taken of the dogs or whilst walking the dog(s).

So It Goes

Sorry that I have been relatively silent here with the exception of photos, but life has been going full throttle with work related projects and then my Grandma had a small visit to the hospital yesterday.
This stressed me out. My Grandma is 89 and I know she won’t live forever, but I would like it if she stuck around for a bit.
And then there is the four fricken’ pesky forks of Python/GAE code that should work but don’t. Tomorrow morning, I will start a very minimalist 5th fork to see if I can get the logic that lives in my head and in a paper flow chart to work.
I would like to go on a week’s vacation to a relaxation spa with no internet connection.
