@weberwithoneb But why??? Why do they do that? It is so infuriating!

@twsspodcast If done right, I think they can get at least two more seasons after Michael Scott leaves. NBC can’t afford not to. :-)

@twsspodcast Just listened to the last show. “In the Heart of the Sea” is my favorite book of all time.

Thank goodness for the person at Fry’s Electronics that tells me which register to go to. How would I ever figure it out on my own?

Back in the day, GoLive CyberStudio was far superior to Dreamweaver. Adobe GoLive (the post acquisition product) was a bastardized version.

via TweetDeck

Sure, there are some “baby apps” like iWeb that are okay. GoLive CyberStudio was getting really close until Adobe messed them up.

When will we ever get actual WYSIWYG? In 2010 I should not have to deal with HTML or CSS to create a page, especially to position an image.

via TweetDeck

IE does not deal with position:relative correctly unless you create additional hoops for IE to jump through.

via TweetDeck

Why won’t Microsoft support accepted web standards? I couldn’t try the IE9 preview since I only have XP, but IE 7 & 8 both suck.

via TweetDeck

I spent some of my weekend fighting with IE. I am working on website that rendered great in Safari, Chrome, FireFox and Opera (on Mac & Win)

@earthXplorer No, bad pizza is not good. Saying that is really your #rookiemistake! :-)

Joey was in the studio yesterday!!! Some post production work left to do, but a new podcast will be posted later today.

SethMacFarlane “Precious” would’ve been a better film if it had focused less on the mother-daughter conflict, and more on the search for a magic chalice.

Marathon is the precursor to Halo. Microsoft bought Bungie Software in 2000 and turned them from a Mac shop into an XBox shop.

via TweetDeck

I have now stayed up way too late playing Marathon! The graphics are what you would expect a game from 1994 to be. The music… AWESOME!

If you were ever a Mac gamer, then you know Marathon! You can play it on Intel Macs here: http://marathon.sourcefo…

@kevincrossman OGIS Extension for Safari is only 1/2 good. The image is still brought up in a stupid popout frame when you click on it.

Playing with Safari Extensions. Some good ones: ResizeMe, Awesome Screenshot (not quite awesome, but nice), and TinEye Reverse Image Search.

With Yahoo, I don’t have to fight with the image either. Sometimes Web 2.0 gets in the way. Google traded usability for “cool” web effects.

via TweetDeck

No joke. The image I was looking for came up FIRST in Yahoo! image search. It wasn’t even on the first page of Google sad attempt…

via TweetDeck

Holy frogs raining down from heaven above! I so hate the new Google Image Search!!!! Time to go back to Yahoo or maybe try out Bing…

Okay, I have been working on the website. I removed all of my Twitter update posts. Creating a blog post of your Twitter updates is lame.

Verdict on Five Guys Burger: Where does it fit in the pantheon of fast food burgs? I need to digest on that more. First impression: just ok.

Eating healthy on hold for an afternoon. I am continuing my best burger search… At Five Guys with @kevincrossman conducting research.
