canon eos digital rebel

December 1st, 2003

I recently bought a Canon EOS 10D Digital Camera because we recently had our first child and I wanted to get the best shots of my beautiful new daughter as possible.

I already had a 35mm Canon EOS Rebel for many years, so I already had a lens that would fit this digital camera (the 35mm lenses fit this Digital SLR camera).

Just my luck, Canon recently introduced the Canon EOS Digital Rebel for about $500 cheaper than the already inexpensive DSLR that I bought a few months back.

If you are even close to being a photo hobbyist or you ready to take the next step past point and shoot, the Canon EOS Digital Rebel is the camera for you. A 6.3 megapixel digital single lens reflex camera for under $1000 is just about unheard of. Add to the the Canon quality that they put into all their cameras and you’ll see why this is the digicam to have in 2004.

Add it to your wish list. You’ll love it.

They also have great deals at Tiger Direct.

verisign is a mofo cybersquatter

I just don’t know what to say about this.

This seems to be one of the most criminal, monopolistic abuses of power that I have seen happen on the internet since I made my first clickety click several years ago.

Verisgn is making all the unregistered domains point back to their server so they can make money from the traffic of every unused domain on the internet. Mofos.

googlism gets us right

July 23rd, 2003

I’m not exactly sure how this site works, but googlism.com seems to have gotten the description of webdiscuss spot on:


Unfortunately the googlism site uses exit pop unders, so it sorta leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Maybe they should switch to using google adsense ads 😉

working on a new web project

July 23rd, 2003

So my business partner and I are pretty close to launching a new web project. It definitely has the potential to be pretty big.

We’re at the final testing and while all the major stuff is done, there are still a few straggling items that are holding things up (darn credit card processors and their non-standard code!)

He made a good comparison, it’s like when you’re moving and you’ve moved all the couches and beds and other “big” stuff, but then you look at your place and you see all the little crap left hiding in corners. Not that it’s important, but it seems to be everywhere…

some thoughts on pancakes

July 18th, 2003

I like pancakes. My wife made me try these frozen pancakes from Krusteaz yesterday, and while I was hesitant to try “fake” pancakes, I have to admit, they were pretty darn good!

I was watching an old episode of Family Guy the other day where little Stewie got his first taste of pancakes. He sums up my love for pancakes in this quote:
(from Family Guy Episode 11: http://www.southperk.com/e11.html )

Mitch Hedberg with some deep thoughts on pancakes:

“As a comedian, you have to start your act out strong, but you also have to save some of the good stuff for later… You can’t be like pancakes, all exciting at first, but by the end you’re fuckin’ sick of ‘em.” —Mitch Hedburg

I added that last dash since Mitch said he always wanted to be quoted with a dash. Go buy his CD, it’s pretty damn funny. Better yet, go see him live *editorial note: this post was originally written 2 years before Mitch passed away*
The best pancakes I’ve ever had were at Joann’s Country Kitchen Too in Modesto, CA. Pancakes as big as the 20 inch rims in a rap video.
