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.

There are 21 posts previously published on February 11th

    • Chucks of the day (49/53): #pride edition black hightops with rainbow specks, soles, and heel plate. Was quite thrilled to find a pair of these today! #converse #chucks

    • Mmmm…ending the day with a warm drink is nice. (42/366)

    • I will have my chocolate tonight! (Not the whole thing, though.)
    • She’s nekkid! I’m shocked; shocked, I tell you!

    • Seattle Metro Tunnel Beating This is one of the most disturbing local stories I've seen in a long time. A 15-year old girl was beaten on the platform of the Seattle Metro Bus Tunnel, while security guards and witnesses stood around and watched.

    • Ugh. Ick. Bleah. On the bright side, one thing I love about working five blocks from home is that I've got time on my one-hour lunch break to leave work, hit Subway, grab a sandwich, come home, eat, hop into the shower and soak under hot water for about 20 minutes, then get back dressed and head back into work. That's probably about the only thing that made the latter half of the day bearable.
    • Captain’s Blog, Stardate 47751.2 Today's comic from Joy of Tech is a must-see.
    • Washington Post article on Blogging and Jobs About two weeks ago, I spent some time being interviewed by Amy Joyce of the Washington Post about my expulsion from the Microsoft campus for an article she was working on about the potential pitfalls of blogging about one's job. The article went live today: Free Expression Can Be Costly When Bloggers Bad-Mouth Jobs.

    • Relationships One of the things that's always bothered me (and many other people) about social networking sites such as Orkut, Friendster, or any other *ster meme-of-the-moment is the binary nature of their setups — either someone is your friend, or they aren't. That's it. Those are your only choices.
    • Own 1/1100th of a supercomputer! Now that Virginia Tech is upgrading 'Big Mac' to the new G5-based XServes, some of the original 1,100 dual 2Ghz G5 Power Macs that were part of the cluster are being sold through MacMall for $2799.
    • Help the CIA find those pesky WMDs! How wonderfully thoughtful — the CIA has posted a handy little online form so that people can submit tips on WMD locations (and other Iraq-related intel).
    • Like, I guess I’ll just have to, like, get used to it now 'It really is a wonderful, useful word,' says Muffy E.A. Siegel, an associate professor of English at Temple University in Philadelphia, who has studied the use of 'like.'
    • Brother for sale …the words 'sewing machine' were accidentally dropped, leaving a 'BROTHER' for sale ad.
    • Sponsorship I'm experimenting with something that I found via Snowman on the TPUG — sponsored weblog entries. Three posts on my site now have small, fairly unobtrusive text ads at the bottom of the post, for which I get some small amount of compensation.

    • Still tempin' My boss got back to me with Xerox's employment offer. What did they use to try to entice me into the Xerox family? A whole lotta nuttin'.

    • Hold on, please. Whenever a phone solicitor calls in the middle of dinner, don't get sore. Don't slam down the receiver. Don't hang up. Just say, 'Hold on, please.' Then gently set the receiver on the table and go about your business.
    • Possibilities of moving? If I can come up with the money to make the move, I think it could be a good deal -- a larger, newer place for the same price, more varied experience on my resume, and being able to stay with a landlord that I know I'm on good terms with.
    • You couldn’t pay me enough Ever since I started working here, I've been able to watch day by day as a new skyscraper is built about two blocks away from my building. When I started last August it wasn't much more than a hole in the ground as they worked on the foundation; now there is a steel framework stretching up about 25 floors, with a central concrete core that's going up what looks to be at least another ten floors or so.

    • The un-what? It's our job...we have to be nice to the unfuckables.
    • Quicker archiving, twins, frustration Seeing as how I'm actually starting to update this thing on a more regular basis, I figured I'd drop the archiving settings down to weekly so that this page didn't just keep scrolling on and on and on and on and on....
