Long Tweet

[Randomness too long to tweet] Most every morning I walk from de Lorimier and Mont-Royal towards St-Laurent and St-Viateur. Two things catch my eye almost every time.

xkcd Bonus

I’ve already linked to xkcd a couple of times (hilarious comic strip) in the past but this morning I noticed something; there’s a “bonus” line in the title tag of the image. Hover over the image for a couple of second to see the text in a “tool tip”.

Looking Forward To The End Of The Day, Again

Loads and loads of things to do. Already planning to work all weekend and then, one of those days hits; Can’t use the facilities because of “reno” work in the bathroom.

Keep Phone Off

Tip / note to self: When you’re 3 hours time difference from most of your friends and clients, don’t keep your phone on during the night. (I was using it as my wakeup alarm, worked too well)

Geek Moment

I swung by the Vancouver Public Library today, one of my favorite buildings anywhere. You might have heard that they used it for an episode of Battlestar Gallactica well guess who was having a slice of pie at Flying Wedge when I was there?
