posted on 2005-02-10 at 23:34:28 by Joel Ross

Friday nights tend to be my big blogging night, but not this week. I will be flying to San Francisco when I would normally be blogging. Of course, I could blog from the plane (and post later). I guess we'll see. I have a few podcasts lined up for the pla… more »

I went into Arbys tonight to get dinner. They have a bell there to tell the workers that they are doing a good job. Whenever the bell rings, everyone working in the place stops what they are doing, and looks up to say "Thank you." This includes cook… more »

Still Alive...

posted on 2005-02-03 at 00:26:12 by Joel Ross

I'm still around. I've just been busy lately. We are about a week away from releasing the Tourney Pool Manager for 2005, and that's been taking up all of my time at night. It will be a relief to get that done. Work has been just as busy. And now I get to… more »

A Sad Day In My Internet History

posted on 2005-01-06 at 00:13:42 by Joel Ross

Over the holidays, a part of me was lost. Follow me back in history if you will. I was late getting into computers. In 1995, I got my first computer as a senior in highschool. Being new to the Internet, I signed up with AOL. They offered the most hours… more »

Tsunami Relief

posted on 2004-12-29 at 22:28:18 by Joel Ross

Scott Hanselman has a great idea about how to help victims of the earthquake and ensuing tsunami, but he needs some help to pressure Google. He wants to donate all of his AdSense income. If everyone did that, we could make a difference (well, not me - m… more »

Turning Caffiene Into Code

posted on 2004-12-13 at 01:09:01 by Joel Ross

Yeah, it's my favorite line from one of the DotNetRocks shows, but it's fitting. Dan Fernandez has a post that lists out the caffiene content of many popular drinks. Personally, Mountain Dew is the drink of choice (It must be - I even know it's homepage!… more »

My wife and I started watching season three of 24 tonight. We got through four episodes (from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM). Coincidentally, the DVDs were released today. But we're not watching DVDs. We're watching VHS cassettes that we recorded last season. So fa… more »

.NET Is Dead

Ok. Before you start flaming me, let me explain. I don't think this, but that's what an external vendor a client of ours said to our client today, so it must be true, right? The client called me today after he got off the phone to tell me about his conv… more »

I can't believe I almost forgot to post this! It's been very hectic around the house the past few days. Our daughter was sick over the weekend, throwing up for the first time - well, she spit up as a baby, but she's outgrown that. It's tough to watch yo… more »
