My MobileMe trial expired, and now all my contacts are deleted from my phone without any notice.

I wonder how I can get them back...

Andy DeSoto — Internet and social media technologies for humans

Just installed a Google Friend Connect widget on my blog-- take a few seconds to sign in, I'd appreciate it!
Can anyone think of a way I could spruce up a concert program from a design perspective? It's all about attention to detail for our upcoming brass quintet concert!

Pownce meets its end — Andy DeSoto

My personal thoughts on Pownce's sad news.


Just in case, too.

(By the way, I was actually a Vox beta tester. [I hated it.] I have the badge!)

Spam blog comment of the day:

"Hi. I on numerous occasions scan this forum. This is the oldest together unequivocal to ask a ridiculous. How numberless in this forum are references progressive behind, knavish users? Can I depute all the facts that there is?"

A selection from William James:

"Not that I would not, if I could, be both handsome and fat and well dressed, and a great athlete, and make a million a year, be a wit, a bon-vivant, and a lady-killer, as well as a philosopher; a philanthropist, statesman, warrior, and African explorer, as well as a 'tone-poet' and saint.

"But the thing is simply impossible. The millionaire's work would run counter to the saint's; the bon-vivant and the philanthropist would trip each other up; the philosopher and the lady-killer could not well keep house in the same tenement of clay. Such different characters may conceivably at the outset of life be alike possible to a man. But to make any one of them actual, the rest much more or less be suppressed.

"So the seeker of his truest, strongest, deepest self must review the list carefully, and pick out the one on which to stake his salvation. All other selves thereupon become unreal, but the fortunes of this self are real. Its failures are real failures, its triumphs real triumphs, carrying shame and gladness with them."

The solution to my CSCI 312 homework:

x y i a
VALUE 1 3 2 {0, 2, 3, 6}
VALUE-RESULT 1 3 3 {3, 2, 3, 6}
REFERENCE 1 3 3 {3, 2, 3, 6}
NAME 1 5 3 {0, 5, 3, 6}

Actually, I'm not sure about those answers, so don't quote me on that.

I sort of want this badly:

"This instrument is not used. It is a prototype of a new Tuba Exchange BBb tuba model, which is reminiscent of a well known German design. This five rotary valve BBb tuba comes with two fifth valve tuning slides for either whole step, or step and a half, fifth valve tuning. The price includes new hard case with wheels, new mouthpiece, 21 day trial period and free shipping. "

Association for Psychological Science

I read some pretty fascinating research today suggesting that being lonely or isolated literally feels cold. Subjects primed to feel lonely were more likely to prefer warm food and beverages to cold, and in another experiment rated the room's temperature as cooler.

Amazing, huh?
Okay, I think I'm going to write a novel this November. I feel like it's going to be some sort of thriller/action bit involving someone who shares a little bit too much information about themselves on the Internet...
