Enterprise IT: Why does “having a job” and good software have to be mutually exclusive?

We’ve all heard that ‘witty’ interjection – usually after explaining (or complaining about) a very complicated software procedure (typically administrative / operational in nature) someone will always say something like “Hey, that’s why we have jobs!” (or, if consulting, “that’s why you’re here”, etc)….. Why can’t we have both?

Poking the Pot Roast of life, Hard

Sometimes you get stuck in a rut, hey, we all do – but how you deal with it is what separates us from common wildebeests. Most people? They do nothing – they are totally fine with having an unfulfilled albeit mostly “comfortable” existence. Sounds crazy? Nope. Its the middle-class American way. Follow the rules, color […]

Cut-N-Paste Corner: PHP function – Dynamically Round up to nearest 10, 100, 1000 or whatever (Graphing Axis Sex Toy)

One from the “Random-Shit-Pulled-Out-of-the-Junk-Drawer” Department… as I sit here and watch my beloved Red Sox cement their way OUT of playoffs… {sigh} Here’s a little function I use when building sexy little graphs in my PHP Reporting / Web Interfaces. Its good to calculate a MAX value for the graph axis. Since we never know […]

Developers, IT Nerds, Useless Tech People – stop wielding “knowledge” like it was Geek Bravado weaponry

I’m sorry – but who the fuck cares that you can recite X, Y, and Z off the top of your head. Is its relevant and useful? Generally, no. Are you helping the situation, project or issue? No. There is a word for out-of-context over-information like that… Banal Minutiae. Google search makes glorified know-it-alls obsolete. […]

Fuck, sales, leads, & sign-ups. You know what has the BEST conversion rate ever?

Smile at people. Oh, that’s right – I just dropped a feel-good knowledge bomb on you of EPIC proportions. I guarantee that if you look people in the eyes and smile at them – regardless if its a cashier, toll booth worker, random ass-pony on the street, cute girls (or dudes) at a bar, or […]

What Sookie Stackhouse can teach you about being a better blogger

TrueBlood. Killer show. Let’s face it. It really is a weird-ass perfect storm of timing, promotion, and just straight up quality storytelling. Don’t even dare to compare it with those Justin-Beiber-esque-Saved-by-the-Bell-type-Vampire-Twilight-Movies that are currently sweeping the minds and loins of young teens these days. They are an inferior product – vamprires (fictional or not) do […]

Get Clicky Android Widget = Awesomely Convenient

If you’re like me (exactly maybe, as scary as that might be) and have a Motorola Droid, and use Clicky for awesome and simple web analytics – you’ll want this. Its only 1 dollar – which is the same as a double cheeseburger at McDonalds (if you local vendors participate – since we all know […]

You can pet my Goat. Just wash your hands first, please.

I tried to feed a goat a tin can once. He wouldn’t eat it. Cartoons have steered me wrong once again. Besides… the supervising Goat master scolded me before the Goat had a chance to fully understand the situation he was being put in. Maybe that particular Goat had diabetes and wasn’t allowed to eat […]
