For the past couple years I've been using Phatsoft TMR, a little Windows utility that leverages the Windows Task Scheduler to pop up notifications at a specified time. It does what it does very neatly, and by dicking with tasks at the Task Scheduler level I can create notifications that fire daily but which can be postponed to re-remind me if I can't do whatever daily thing right that moment. The only thing I could ask for more, is if it also had some sort of interface to show a complete list of pending no... (...more)

woah, 10 days since I last updated? There goes my google relevancy ranking! I really need things to fall into place so I can get out of here. It kills me to have such sparse face time with Danielle, and saving up, shopping and logistics of flying up to visit makes me an anxious nut. Thursday I made it to the airport in fair time to get through security. The girl in line behind me seemed to want to strike up a conversation, but we just didn't have a whole lot to say beyond where were going. They weren... (...more)
New window = homepage for Opera 11 posted: Sun 2011-09-18 14:58:18 tags: opera, dungeon overlord
Dungeon Overlord on Facebook has been in beta for a bit over 9 months now. Much has improved, but some things still suck. Most notably, it leaks memory. Also, often for no apparent reason it just crawls or halts, and of course the containing browser window effectively bogs down or freezes up as well. This might or might not be tied to something marginal in Facebook, or on the app server side. It's really bad in Chrome, but Chrome is nice about running the Flash app in its own process so (using Process E... (...more)

Session #18: (per twitter) 3.3mi / 46m20s, peak 5.9mph, 1.5 laps at 5.5mph. Shortly after the 3-mile mark I realized I would have to hustle if I wanted to match my previous best time, but somewhere in my overheated brainmeats I was operating on the mistaken notion that my previous best was 46m flat. And of course it wasn't, it was 46m30s. So I huffed and puffed at a 5.5ish mph pace, and at the 3.25mi mark it was obvious I wasn't clearing the 46-minute mark, but I rode out the last .05 mi at that pace an... (...more)
