My Writings. My Thoughts.
I’ve been remiss in fixing the Power Maps for the Bangor Hydro site update (no town names were being displayed). I’m happy to announce that I’ve gotten off my lazy backside and have updated both the Desktop (euicho.com/powermap) and Widescreen TV (euicho.com/powermonitor) versions. Thanks for your patience!
It may seem strange that I haven’t posted anything about our son Gabriel on here since his birth! The reason is that all those updates/posts are being made to a private group on Posterous. I wanted the majority of Gabe’s information to remain private until he’s old enough to decide for himself what he wants [...]
Flickr user airosche5's EDC Many people (especially us geeks and outdoors/survival enthusiasts) hate to go anywhere unprepared. Most of us, whether we use the term or not, have what is called an Everyday carry (EDC). To paraphrase Wikipedia, an Everyday carry is a collection of small items carried on one’s person on a daily basis [...]
My first thought was to search userscripts.org to see if there was already a script to do this and sure enough, there was. This is the way these things go.
There’s a good article at LibraryThing about ebooks, ownership rights, and priracy. The article tries to cover a bit too much at once, but it did make me think about the effect of ebook piracy and how to combat it.

Our son Gabriel will be here in just over 4 weeks! We’re so excited… and also nervous. I think we’ve prepared all we can, but I can’t help wanting to do more. Matt, Jesse, and I have been planning our trip to PAX East this year. I’m really excited for it, but it’s going to [...]
With the start of a new year I’ve decided to update my theme yet again. This isn’t surprising to my old dorm buddy and close friend Jesse, who would leave our room for class and come home to it completely rearranged–roughly twice a month. I’m in an “ease of use”/”minimalism with a splash of color” [...]
This Sunday we had some last-minute Xmas shopping to do. We went to Bagel Central for a delicious lunch, then to Burlington Coat Factory where I wanted to get a jacket I’d seen on sale. They didn’t have it but we ended up finding one I liked even better. Doody probably felt a twinge of [...]
I don’t usually post youtube videos, since that could be an entire blog on it’s own. For that reason I don’t spend much time on youtube in general–I have enough time-sinks as it is. Still, sometimes I come across a video that completely blows my mind. This is one of those videos: Coolest dog EVER.
All humans have a unique genotype. Your genotype is your genetic makeup, combined from your mother’s and father’s alleles (genes). Your genotype determines what traits you have, called phenotypes. You probably know that things like attached earlobes, freckles, and a widows peak are due to our genotype, but you may have other observable traits you [...]
