Other Ten Percent 12/17/10

Dec 17 2010 Published by under Uncategorized

Okay so plan “screw it let’s write this on an iPad” didn’t work but strangely that wasn’t because typing it up was difficult but because the gReader interface for iPad doesn’t let you just scroll past boring crap. To mark stuff as read on literally every single RSS reader I can find for iPad I have to actually read the stuff which is pretty painful. Oh well, experiment put on hold pending me actually HAVING to do it. Continue Reading »

Okay so due to various problems with PG&E being my mortal enemy I barely got to use the new compy today but that’s cool because when I did get to use it it was fun and a lot of other good stuff happened like my committee approved my creative project so I’m still on track to graduate and Jamie sent me books! Including the OK book I blogged about a week or two back. Also I got an iPad. …Looking back the electricity being out for like 7 hours doesn’t really seem to offset how good a day this was. Anyway tomorrow I’m going to test out writing this up on the iPad to see if there’s that much functionality in the thing (Spoiler Alert: I will misspell even more things.) and maybe move over to it as my permanent surfing the web device while the iMac takes on more serious tasks and also basically doubles as a TV because good God this thing is huge. Anyway let’s get to links. Continue Reading »

I haz a new computer everybody! The screen is so large I am having to adjust to how long it takes my cursor to get around even at maximum mouse sensitivity! For those playing along at home yes that was the most pathetic attempt at bragging in the entire history of the world. Let’s get to the links- take it away wireless keyboard I fear will run out of batteries constantly. Continue Reading »

One last hastily assembled OTP as I take a break from my schedule of constant soul crushing work to write up some links for you guys. Sorry about the really TERRIBLE misspellings on Friday’s OTP by the way. Ended up hitting send at 11:57 and not really looking it over until 12:05 because of boring minutia about how I do this on the back end. I’m never exactly hitting it out of the park but I do know how to spell Shakespeare. Also, I swear I will be more cheery starting with the next entry. I’ve got a new computer headed my way and a bunch of other good news about life but my brain just isn’t in a place to process any of it. Soon I will stop sounding like Eeyore. Continue Reading »

So this is the last entry in (God willing) the busiest week of my graduate career. When next you hear from me I will either be much relieved or dead. Let’s assume much relived and talk about what OTP is going to look like for the rest of the year. Next week will be a fairly normal faire as I wind down the semester and get ready for the holidays, but the following week I think is going to be a little weird. Instead of regular links from around the web I think, due to sporadic internet access from travel and the general lack of real content that week anyway, that the week of the 20-24th is going to be a round up of “best of the year” entries. We’re going to have the OTP guide to the years 10 gifts followed by 10 films/movies followed by 10 albums followed by 10 books/comics and ending with the top 10 links of the year. Then the last week of the year will, probably be fairly normal again just grabbing all the content missed the previous week. I know it’s sort of a weird week for wrap up posts but I think it’d be the most convenient week for everybody. Let’s at least give it a try. Continue Reading »

I couldn’t sleep last night and my roommate’s watching Family Guy in the next room and her boyfriend is asking if she knows who Adam West is like this is history’s greatest fun fact so it’s not looking too great for sleep tonight either. Whoopty woooo. Continue Reading »

Dec 06 2010 Published by under Uncategorized

I am beginning to get that nagging feeling that the finish line I am envisioning about a week and a half from now is not actually going to result in a decrease in my workload to any significant degree. This is rather depressing to me. Let’s look at links instead of talking about it more. Continue Reading »
