New Job, New Tools

I’ve started a new job recently and with it came a new, very nice, laptop. And of course my whole “workflow” is changing so that’s pushed me to look at some new tools for doing my job. I like to tinker with new tools and utilities from time to time. tmux First up is tmux. […]

Nola City Bark Opening Day

We attended the opening day of Nola City Bark with our rescue Frenchie Wyatt Earp and our pug Bugsy.  We had a great time as did the little dogs. As one owner said, “I’m not sure who is happier here, the dogs or their people.”  I put together the video below and set it to […]

Sometimes it’s the little things

Sometimes it’s the big things, like the Saints winning the Super Bowl and electing a new mayor.  Other times, it’s the little things.  Katie’s in Mid-City has finally reopened.  Jennifer and I had our rehearsal dinner there in 2004.

Who Dat!!!!

Elation.  Jubilation. Pandemonium. Ecstasy.  Bedlam. Delirium. Joy. There’s no English word in existence to convey the emotion of the people in this city and this region after the Saints win in Super Bowl XLIV.  I want to capture and keep it and take it out every once in a while when I need it.  So this […]

I recently installed Linux Mint (ubuntu with some goodies) on a laptop and wanted an encrypted whole disk. In order for this to be truly secure, you need encrypted swap. Well most of the HOWTOs for encrypting swap use a randomized key. This breaks hibernate to disk for laptops because the linux kernel has no […]

WordPress upgrade

Well Twitter was all abuzz about a WordPress worm and sure enough a worm had been circulating attacking old versions of wordpress.  Well obviously I pretty much never post on this blog these days.   And wordpress is notorious for security issues.  This is partly due to the popularity of the product, partly due to problems […]


Over Thanksgiving, Jennifer and I took a weeklong vacation in Paris.  We’ve been talking about going for years and just put it off and put it off and finally just decided we had to go this year or we never would.  We haven’t been on a vacation together since 2004. So we started planning to […]

Yes We Can!

Wow.  Feel so happy about this day. I am loath to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all […]

In the Midst of the Financial Crisis

State Rep Labruzzo proposes a “voluntary” sterilization program to reduce future costs of social support programs.  When David Duke proposed the same thing back in 1991 while I was a young student at Ole Miss, my friends would ask me, “Hey aren’t you from Metairie?”  um. yeah. actually.  And it was terribly embarrassing. This is […]

Oh man, Texas got the X’s

So I was taking a look at, just to see how things were really going in TX and I came across this picture. And I thought, “Oh, man, they got the X’s.”  Just reading that front page felt so familiar and looking through photos like the one above is just eerie.  I know there’s […]
