Sadly, Comcast cable keeps messing with my channel lineup. As a result, I no longer receive one of my favorite programs, Journal de France (the news in French). It’s really great to get different perspectives on the news from around the world. It’s also a great way for me to keep up with my French. [...]

I want to throw some support to my favorite pastry shop/chef in the Bay Area – Fleur de Cocoa. I challenge anyone to find better pasty in a hundred mile radius. If you find some, please tell me. You must eat/try: Milles-Feuilles, Chocolate and Coffee Eclairs, Opera, Marion, Royal, and Satin. My favorites are the [...]

After years of searching, I’ve finally found a great basic T-shirt. Over the years, I’ve typically found two types of T-shirts – baggy/frumpy ones or ones that fit so tight they are like a sausage skin. Neither are options I'm willing to accept.

D:Fuse’s new album, People 3 is awesome! This album was recorded live in SF with D:Fuse at the decks AND playing electronic congas, bongos, tablas, and timbales. It also includes Mike Hiratzka on guitar, bass, and keyboards and Austin’s MC Flint on vocals. I had tickets for this event but got busy and didn’t make [...]

I love Outlook because it’s the center of my day. My appointments, contacts, notes, and email are all in one place. However, for a product that has been around for this long, it shouldn’t have so many “quirks.” Outlook works great with Exchange and POP3 accounts. I’ve recently moved to an IMAP account and find [...]

I’ve been using a Treo 650 for a few months and really liked the device at first. As my dependency on real time email has increased, my happiness with the device has decreased. The device does everything OK, but does nothing great. So I’m thinking of returning to a Blackberry (my last one was years [...]
