Since I’ll hit 20 years of blogging this November, this year I’m posting a daily list of anything I published on this day in the past. Here are my past posts for January 12…

    • Full Bookshelves Are Not Untidy Ms. Kondo may well be good at organizing and helping people find ways to de-clutter and tidy their lives. But she can keep her sparkling woo away from my bookshelves.
  • 2017
    • It’s -3° officially, -8° at our house this morning. This is not acceptable.

    • Almost forgot my picture for today! Just a little reading before I get to sleep. Gotta finish this one before I can start this year’s P. K. Dick nominees.

    • Links for January 11th through January 12th Sometime between January 11th and January 12th, I thought this stuff was interesting.

    • Links for January 12th from 10:14 to 15:44 Sometime between 10:14 and 15:44, I thought this stuff was interesting.

    • Old Fishing Hole Triptych The Old Fishing Hole in Kent, WA, in summer, winter, and flood.
  • 2008
  • 2005
    • BBC Interview on Blogging British blogger Tom Reynolds was recently interviewed by the BBC about his weblog. The interview is definitely worth a listen — they cover quite a few points, including some of the same topics regarding bloggers rights that I addressed recently.
    • Moving to del.icio.us The old linklog has been removed from my sidebar, and has been replaced with a list of the most recent fifteen items added to my del.icio.us page. There's an RSS feed available too, though once I iron out some issues with FeedBurner, lniks will be spliced directly into my main RSS feeds.
    • Search for WMDs Ends It's official: after two years, the search for WMDs in Iraq has been called to a halt.
  • 2004
    • Why I’ve missed IRC during the clinton administration, blowjobs were FREE
    • Bandwidth Confidential to T-Mobile: NASA is downloading 36 MB TIFFs from Mars and I only get 2 bars of signal on my cell phone inside my house. Please look into upgrading.
    • Who’s the pervert? ;) If it weren't for Anil so kindly keeping track of things like this, I'd never know just when the twins were due to turn 18.
    • Apple gaining ground in enterprise markets It's so nice to live in a time when every news article about Apple doesn't involve some form of doom and gloom predictions. Not only have the 'Apple is doomed' proclamations died down, things just keep getting better — even in markets historically far outside of Apple's domain.
    • Apple Computers? Pshaw…try Potato Processing! German police are investigating after an angry man returned a computer he had just bought saying it was packed with small potatoes instead of computer parts.
    • Restaurant vs. Bar If you need reservations, it’s a restaurant. If you have reservations about admitting where you were till 2 a.m., it’s a bar.
    • All I want to do is go back to bed. I'll likely not entirely cease hitting the Vogue on Saturday nights, as there are definitely times I like the busier, bustling atmosphere of a weekend night, and the slightly "pop"-ier music gets some songs in that I like dancing to that are less likey to show up on a Sunday night. However, if I had to choose just one night to hit the club on any given week, Sundays would definitely be my choice.

    • Comment preview upgrade A couple days ago, Phillip found my 'Live Comment Preview' and incorporated it into his blog. However, not satisfied with what I had, he improved the code so that it recognizes and inserts linebreaks correctly!
    • GeoURL I've just signed on with GeoURL, a web service that ties a weblog to a location, so that you can find out who your blogging neighbors are in a true geographic sense.
    • Pick-up lines Do you come here often? Or do you wait until you go home?
    • Rollins! It's like the idea of us getting into a war with North Korea. I can't see it happening, but the way for me to internalize it is to envision these old guys running around the war room with hard-ons, looking for some payback for when they had to bail out of Pusan in the '50s. Or Donald Rumsfeld's thing: 'Yeah, we can handle two wars! Absolutely two wars! How 'bout fuckin' three? Come on, you motherfuckers, we'll start two half-wars over at your house, and we'll have another one on the White House lawn right now, bitch!'

    • Lord of the OS One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them, One OS to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
  • 2001
    • Downtime Sorry about the recent downtime (the last couple days or so) -- something went seriously glitchy on the machine, and I had to do a system repair on OS X, which nuked the web directory.
