     Sometimes you just really want to be able to get an RSS feed of a certain twitter user, are they called tweeters? Be it because you don't want them to know you are following them, and I'm not promoting stalking here, well not directly ;) Or maybe, and more likely, you just don't want to miss a tweet from somebody, but you aren't always checking twitter, and you don't have a mobile device that you can get a notification every time they tweet. Now it used to be possible in the past to get an RSS feed directly from Twitter, however with the API change that no longer...

             Welcome back, if you haven't read part 1 you can find it here.

     We'll be looking at more of the options that Variety gives us, starting with the Manual downloading tab.
 
     Manual downloading is actually pretty cool, say you're browsing the web, and stumble upon a cool picture that you'd like to have as a desktop background, well you can just click'n'drag that image, or URL and drop it on the Variety icon in your status bar and the image will be saved to your...

     Everybody likes a little variety in their life, be it Linux distros, themes, icon packs, or wallpapers. Well today I'm going to be telling you about a program that can bring you some variety to your desktop wallpaper. For those of you that are regular readers of my blog you'll probably remember my posting about a program called Cortina which is a very simple way to automatically change your wallpaper, but maybe you want something with a few more options, and more features, then look no further than Variety.

     Variety is a feature...

     So once again its Halloween time for those of us in retail. This year new on the plate is skeleton gnomes. I must say, I've never understood what the deal was with gnomes, every spring/summer we get a collection of them and they always sell. Some smart person probably decided to tap the gnome market for Halloween, and I must admit we've already sold out of a couple, so the demand is certainly there. I only have one problem with these gnome skeletons, and that may be surprising, that I only have one problem with them and not many, but look at this picture of this...

     For the last few months I've been attending a Baptist congregations services, due to no choice of my own, I should add. In that time I've been blown away with all the illogical and downright stupid things I've heard. This blog post is dedicated to all the stupid, illogical, things I've heard said.

     Lets start with one of the most annoying things, getting SCREAMED at. You probably didn't care for my shouting of the word screamed, well imagine, if you dare, a guy getting up on the ”stage” and spending an hour screaming at you. Its no...

     You just have to love music these days, there is so much stupidity in it, it leaves me wondering what people were thinking when they wrote songs, and if they didn't think of the effects of confessing to doing crimes in their music, not going to go very well in court when you have a song telling the world what you did....
  Right now he's probably slow dancing with a bleached-blond tramp,
and she's probably getting frisky...
right now, he's probably buying her some fruity little drink
'cause she can't shoot whiskey...
Right now, he's...

     So I've had my bike for a little over a month now, time for a review.
     I'm probably the average driver, taking my bike to work five days a week, it's about an eight mile drive. I drove exclusively on city streets until Friday when I took my bike on the freeway, but more on that later.
     Since buying my bike I've replaced both tires, the air filter, oil and oil filter, brake fluid, and used two tanks of gas. What can I say, the bike needed some work, but it was a good deal. I even gave her a bath, only to...

     Ultimate stopwatch may not actually be the ultimate, but it certainly is good, and looks good too, and it's open source.

     Some screen shots.            There is just something that I dig about the analog hands, though I hate analog clocks, they look really good on the stopwatch. Did I mention there is full support for laps? and that it counts thousandths of a second, though I doubt that you could really tap on the start, lap, or stop buttons fast enough for that to be completely accurate, but it's...

  Like most things it starts small,  a little here, a little there,  we never expect it to get so out of hand.  We pick it up and its all cool,  we think we can handle it,  but slowly it grows on us,  what started small slowly gets larger.  Eventually we realize its to big to deal with on our own,  so we call on professional help.  We're given a professional opinion,  by somebody who knows way more than we do,  and we try and follow their advice in curbing it back, but still it grows larger and gets more out of hand...
