Dvorak (take 2!)

by Rob Friesel

Sampo follows up on the Dvorak vs. Creative Commons thing by referencing the Slashdot thread on the subject. One thing that I noticed keeps poking its head in a rather unfortunate way: Creative Commons licenses provide an accessible, relatively easy way for folks to publish content “with strings attached” but without worrying about having their […]

Dvorak on Creative Commons

by Rob Friesel

Via Slashdot: Dvorak trashes Creative Commons… There are several things that bother me about this initiative. First, Creative Commons is similar to a license. You sign up with the group and post a message saying that your material is protected or covered by Creative Commons. This means that others have certain rights to reuse the […]

Dr’s visit was largely inconclusive. Fluid in the ears? Probably. Probably not an infection. Which was nice but it still would have been nice to know a little more conclusively what’s making my skull feel like a 24/7 toboggan ride from hell.

I dig what I hear so far. Kind of a mature Frou Frou meets Nightmares On Wax. currently playing: Atomica “Delorian”

did i miss something?

Perusing the iTunes Music Store recently, I stumbled across the new Nick Warren. The first surprise was that I’d thought after Reykjavik he’d said he wasn’t doing another of these mixes. And then I thought to myself Why haven’t I seen one of these mixes in the iTMS before? I’d certainly looked. And then things […]

Detroit Rock City

Saw this amusing flick last night. Don’t think this is something that I would have picked up on my own but a friend left it over here urging us to give it a viewing. So we did. Funny stuff. A little strange at point, a little puerile, but fun.

Concern is wondering why all of the sudden you’re dizzy almost all the time for no real reason. I woke up Tuesday and had to grab the wall to keep from falling over. I managed to get myself straightened out more/less and made it through the drive to work and then work itself w/ only […]
