Personal Floatation Devices

by on Nov.10, 2010, under Random Stuff

If you are so inclined, you may bring your own personal life jacket, though we do provide them to all passengers. Delta will accept one self-inflating life jacket that contains no more than two small carbon dioxide cylinders plus no more than two spare cylinders as checked or carry-on baggage.

I really hate how every time I buy tickets from Fandango I get 4 subsequent marketing e-mails trying to get me to buy more stuff…

Facebook Knows What I’m Thinking

by on Dec.09, 2008, under Random Stuff

I just posted this comment to my Facebook:

… is asking the Facebook community what he should do with his two-week unpaid forced vacation.

After the AJAX updated, I see this in the sidebar:


…earlier today I jokingly told a friend I was going to watch the entire original Star Trek series during my two-week unpaid forced vacation–COINCIDENCE?!…I think not.

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to 5 December, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted.

Who is this great CalendarWatcher, and why is my contribution of December 5 as being Day of the Ninja non-constructive?!

Using the Rating System in iTunes to Prune Hated Tracks

by on Dec.05, 2008, under How I Bastardize Stuff

Do you really need 5 stars to rate anything?  Maybe I’m too all-or-nothing, but either I like something, I really like something, or I don’t like it at all.

I have an iPod and use iTunes (although I’ve been using SongBird a lot more lately).   I’ve been using those extraneous stars to wade through the 7,000+ tracks in my library and get rid of the stuff I don’t want to hear.

Ever download a CD for a wife, nephew or niece–something you would never listen to?  …maybe it was even a compilication, which has now has entwined itself within your folder structure beyond repair?  Or maybe you really like a single song by an artists so you download their own discography in hopes there will be more music you like?  …This is what I do to get rid of them:

  • Star = Delete every things from this artist.
  • StarStar = Uncheck track in iTunes, removing it from play rotation.
  • StarStarStar = I like it.
  • StarStarStarStar = I really like it.
  • StarStarStarStarStar = Com’mon, nothing is really worth 5 stars.
