Daily Random Shit: No More Washington Post article carried one story from the shooting (https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/two-strangers-bond-over-country-music-and-beer-then-the-shots-started/2017/10/03/d5d4541a-a846-11e7-b3aa-c0e2e1d41e38_story.html) Sad. We can make this better, but it won’t be simple and we cannot let those who shout the loudest “win.” What should have led … Continue reading Daily Random Sh*t: No More
Damn, my old Drobo FireWire/USB backup drive died today. Anticipating my summer travels, I had already switched to little Seagate portable USB3 drives… still feel sad and a little concerned whether I had moved everything onto other drives… 😕 Comments: Continue reading Daily Random Sh*t: Drobo Death
DailyRandomShit for 2016-07-30 Remembering Why I Quit Windows Eight Years Ago I tried to upgrade my copy of Windows ahead of the end of the free offer and failed horribly. I had a copy of Windows running using VMware Fusion … Continue reading Remembering Why I Quit Windows Eight Years Ago
Daily Random Shit for 2016-06-25: For the Money! How many Americans see this message/image and say, “How do I get some of that money?” That might be big part of why our Democracy is no longer functioning as a Democracy. Continue reading For the Money!
DailyRandomShit for 2016-06-20 I was looking for something non-political and just a little bit non-PC for the day after Fathers’ Day… here you go… lots of dads being dads and failing on camera. Enjoy. Continue reading Father’s Day Fails “Dad Fails” By FailArmy 2016
DailyRandomShit for 2016-05-06 When this video came across my social feed I was pretty amazed. It was posted by a number of Christians as a proof against Evolution. Wow, it’s very refreshing to see Evangelical Christians promoting and agreeing with … Continue reading Believing in Evolution – Unexpected Bedfellows
Daily Random Shit for 2016-04-23: Bent Earbuds You never know important something is until it stops working properly. And I just realized that this is the second time in the past year that my earbuds seem to be cutting-out or launching Siri randomly or going into double-speed of the podcast I’m listening to. I’m guessing that shoving my giganti-phone iPhone 6 Plus into my pockets with earbuds attached, even with large 5.1.1 Tactical cargo pant pockets, is putting too much pressure on the cord and pin to the point that I’ve bent the part that goes into the phone and … Continue reading Sonic Support – Bent Earbuds
Filling out another job app, which then asks for every job training course I’ve ever taken. This is going to take awhile… 😦 Can’t I just publish this list on a page and share the link?! What’s the point of … Continue reading Job Application Fail
I decided to go to the local WordPress holiday party. Nice people, great snacks and beer, love the Exchange Building where it was hosted. Most of the attendees of these events are either developers or run WordPress related-businesses. I’m neither. I’m a writer who inconsistently blogs. As if I wasn’t feeling a little odd-man-out enough a fellow said hi, asked me what I do and then pointed out that the computer on my shirt was out of date. Dammit if he wasn’t spot on. I’ve been wearing these work shirts forever… well, at least going back to the days of … Continue reading Et tu, WordPress?
Part 1 – 2015-11-03 I think I got bored over the summer and decided that I wanted to go from the relatively inexpensive WordPress.com to the extremely customizable “self-hosted” version of WordPress (the version used by WP gurus and whole businesses built on supporting/creating these sites…). Since then I’ve “duplicated” the main blog, though there were about 1,000 posts that didn’t seem to make the transfer successfully (requiring some ongoing hand-coding/manual transferring of the missing posts…). I created a blog specifically for my podcast, jbb’s final thoughts (instead of it being just a category on the main blog). I’ve attempted … Continue reading It’s Not Supposed To Be This Difficult – Blogging in 2015
This video presentation was originally given at Bar Camp Orlando 2015 on April 18, 2015. Why do some technology solutions seem to work in education while others don’t? Where are MOOCs missing the mark? Education in the Age of the … Continue reading Education in the Age of the Technologist
