  • Kevin Smith vs. Southwest Airlines

    February 17, 2010 Jake DiMare

    I can’t help but find humor in this story. I met Kevin Smith once and I have to say…he was a really nice guy. Even though I interrupted him at a late night sandwich place in Pittsburgh just to say I was a big fan…the guy was kind and generous about it. To echo the sentiment I…

  • Submitting a form when the user hits enter…

    February 16, 2010 Jake DiMare

    Some web coding fixes turn out to be so simple that there is not a lot of good direction on the topic easily found online. Ironically, what little information I could find all turned out to be overcomplicated and didn’t work. For a self-taught hack like me this means figuring it out for myself. To…

  • Another Tablet Option…

    February 16, 2010 Jake DiMare

    The OpenTablet7 from OpenPeak has me thinking. What if my tablet also fills the role of a phone? I hadn’t really thought about this before but it interests me because I have terrible cell phone reception at home and I have been thinking about VoIP as an alternative. In addition to being free from the…

    Much to the chagrin of anyone who may have wanted my attention this past weekend, I was able to make some serious progress with my most recent endeavor to set up a DIY audio production studio in my spare bedroom. I may have to set up a separate blog dedicated to this topic….So much to…

I am back to practicing the drums regularly with the recent purchase of a professional Roland electrical kit. Playing acoustic drums in an apartment in…

  • Open letter to the news media…

    February 11, 2010 Jake DiMare

    I have recently begun to feel disillusioned with the news media in the United States. I believe they spend a lot of time reporting on stories people don’t seem to care about while at the same time complaining that the news industry is falling apart and it is all the internet’s fault. I’d like to write an…

  • Catch the buzz…

    February 10, 2010 Jake DiMare

    In following with their standard tradition Google sneaked right up and dropped an interesting new feature onto the Gmail platform yesterday. Google Buzz is a new tool within Gmail that pretty much mimics the functionality of Twitter and then some. Those that were invited to beta Google Wave will probably notice a couple similarities. For…

    February 9, 2010 Jake DiMare

    Quick poll…does anybody else think the news coverage on Toyota is a little over the top? I mean…who cares? I own a Toyota and I have to say I’m not really concerned for my life. It’s also not the first vehicle I have received a recall letter on. In fact, I have received a recall…
