Tonight the girls and I were playing games like Simon Says, Follow the Leader, and Climb All Over Dad Until His Arms Fall Off. We had almost moved into Hide and Seek when I got an epiphany.
I got over it, but then I remembered that I had had an idea earlier in the week that was applicable to my current situation – and would allow me to avoid stuffing myself poorly and awkwardly into . . . → Read More: Weeping Angels game
I’ve done the math and the interest in this from my typical readership turns out to be slightly less than zero, but hey… it’s my blog. I write what I want to write. You can come back next time for the usual drivel.
I ran into a problem recently that took me forever to solve because I was laboring under the false notion that it was actually possible to pull off within Captivate natively. It’s . . . → Read More: How to publish a multi-file Captivate project as a single SCORM course
Last month’s podcast was such a great success that I decided to do another one.
When I say it was a great success, I mean that it was successfully uploaded and at least three people were able to download and listen to it. I make no statements about the actual quality of the content (though those 3 people who admit to hearing it seemed to enjoy it (which reminds me, your payments will be sent . . . → Read More: TIDBABSH the second, part the first
… and then nothing but disappointment. That pretty much describes this podcast. Really there is some interesting stuff discussed somewhere in there, but to get to it, you have to listen to me talking. Sorry about that, but it is the way of things.
On the upside, you do get to hear my wife talking about this stuff as well, so you got that going for you. Which is nice.
Of course throughout the entire . . . → Read More: Grand opening…
I just finished recording with my wife the inaugural edition of my completely new and wonderful conception: the “Things I didn’t blog about but should have” podcast.
That’s right, you can hear in live, monophonic sound, my own voice telling you about the things that I just didn’t bother writing about!
How much would you pay for that?! WAIT! Don’t answer… there’s more.
Each edition will have someone talking with me about the things I . . . → Read More: Coming soon…
In the 7 day challenge, today’s topic is: Write a blog post on the same topic as one of my most popular posts.
By far, in both page views and comments, my most popular post is one I wrote a little over two years ago about how my daughter smeared Desitin cream all over herself and everything she could get her hands on. After a failed internet search, I was pleading for a way to . . . → Read More: How to get Silly Putty out of clothes – 7 day challenge
A couple of days ago I received a coupon in my email for a free pizza from a local pizzeria. It was a one day deal – a free medium pizza on July 8th only. Not being one to turn down free food, especially food filled with grease and cheese, my interest was piqued. I closely examined the coupon for any hints of a catch, and found that there were no qualifications. Just show up, . . . → Read More: “Free Pizza!!” or “How to completely bungle a marketing campaign”
Portal – The Game. Free Download until May 24th. | The #1 bookmarked Freeware site.
I love Portal. I first played it at my brother’s house a few years ago, and was completely into it, until my wife wanted me to do something silly like help with our daughter or go somewhere we’d planned on and were late getting to. It’s not like I’d been ignoring her and everyone else all day or something. It . . . → Read More: Portal – The Game. Free Download until May 24th (ps: the cake is a lie)
Other heroes may be dark, brooding and intelligent, or invincible super-nice guys, but no one is as fun to watch as Spider-Man. More than most other super-heroes, he seems like a regular (if really intelligent) guy who is trying to juggle two lives without losing his sense of humor. I can relate to him better than any other super-hero I can think of at the moment.
That relatability has a lot to do with the . . . → Read More: Radioactive Spider Blood – Tuesday TubeWatch
I wanted to follow up on a couple of posts I made (long ago) about web conferencing. Figured it was about time I got back to it.
I had the occasion to use two services last night: Vyew, and DimDim. I’ll summarize my experiences below.
This was the first time I’d tried Vyew. It’s a Flash-based service so there is no software to install (unless you want to share your desktop, which requires a Java . . . → Read More: Free web conferencing – ups and downs
