Always Buy Used Except When…

August 23, 2010

I always buy my desktops off craiglist. For usually around $150, I get a decent machine that suits all my need and usually a legal version of MS Office 2003. Good enough for what I do.
However, my netbook is brand new. Why? Because Futureshop (and no doubt other stores) offer up to $300 off laptops […]

Software Tip of the Day

April 29, 2010

I haven’t really blogged a lot about print for two reasons 1) Yah, still really busy 2) It seems everybody is running around with rusty exactor knifes looking to slash their wrists.

The Two Kodaks

February 8, 2010

So, a couple of weeks ago, I exchanged emails with a Kodak field that I knew from waaaaay back, like the 1990s. He was always field while I was always product development. Usually when we talked, that meant something had gone really wrong. Trust me, when things are running smoothly, the product guys and the […]

Another revolutionary product…

February 2, 2010

By the way, the niece and nephew are visiting and they brought the cat. It’s a very quiet, child-friendly cat, except that at about 3 a.m. it gets the urge to wage a battle to the death with the living room carpet. I guess what I am trying to say is that I didn’t get […]
