Let the thing speak for itself - and me.

The world's most important 6-second drum loop

The Amen Break (from Amen Brother) has been used in everything from “late eighties gangster rap, to corporate America’s recycling hip-hop forms to sell things like Jeeps and blue jeans to suburban America”.

VeloNews.com - the descent of a website into uselessness

on Thu, 12/10/2009 - 04:03

Four+ years ago, I saw my first copy of VeloNews on the news stand at Belmont Cycleworks. It was full of shiny pictures of the pro peleton, all the high-end bike porn I could consume. I was in love.

I ordered my first subscription to the magazine almost immediately.

I grew to like many things about it. With each new issue, the first thing I do is open the magazine and find the 2-3 double-page photo spreads of pro cycling races from all over the world, from Europe to Australia, North America to Africa.

Verizon FIOS - Motorola DCT700 ReplayTV

I have no idea whether anybody anywhere needs this blog post.  It's obscure.

But Google indexes EVERYTHING.  So here you go - hopefully, somewhere needs this.

I just got FIOS (giving up my Comcast in the process).  I also own (happily, and sadly) a ReplayTV model 5000.  And I needed to get the ReplayTV to work with the FIOS setup.

ReplayTV, not TiVo? Yeah, I know. However, at the time I bought the ReplayTV it was a little like - like VHS / Beta - nobody knew who would win. I picked the ReplayTV because it had two things going for it:

  1. It had a bigger hard drive for the price.

Migrated to Acquia hosting. Time to re-start blogging

Well, I've been silent for a while (a) because I'm not a prolific blogger (though I've become a prolific Tweeter @batsonjay ), and (b) because I've been wanting to migrate my site to Acquia Hosting.  As Acquia's Founder, I thought I better use our products.  Until now, this blog had been hosted at a third-party hosting company.

I started the process months ago; but stopped before I finished.  And, as is with all cobbler's children, I didn't really take the time to take care of my site - vs. our customers', etc.
