Random Thoughts 4/16/11

  • Tomorrow is Dad's 64th birthday.  Happy birthday, Dad!!!
  • Why am still subscribed to Black Enterprise magazine?  I don't know how it happened but I've been getting these magazines, addressed to me, at the church, for months now.  I'm not sure if it's a practical joke or a mistake or what.
  • Victor Davis Hanson, the renowned historian, asks why President Obama makes so many about-faces.
  • Funny nerd jokes here (Descarte: "I think not."  Ha!).  Had to listen twice to some of them (Unix!), and about a third of them are mildly crude, so be warned.  [Thanks, Dustin] 
  • Here's a couple of iPhone/iPad tips and tricks from Mac|Life.
  • Without too much trouble, other than my slavish and unblinking devotion, I'm closing in on my third free $15 iTunes gift certificate using the ShopKick app.
  • The NFL Draft, which is still happening as far as I know (which is more than I can say for the 2011 NFL season), is just two weeks from now.  I feel good about the direction KC is going.  Don't mess this up, Chiefs!
  • I've been using my new MacBook Pro for several weeks now.  What a pure joy; I'm so blessed.  It's very similar to old white MacBook but it's so much more powerful… and did I mention new?  I average about five years per laptop, so I'm taking very good care of this new machine.  Who knows, will this be the last traditional laptop I ever own?
