I'm flying out to Taiwan in a few hours. I'll be back next week.

Maker Faire

Sunday, May 31, 2009 by darco

I've been at Maker Faire all yesterday, and I will be here most/all of today (Sunday). I'm at the Audio Anecdotes booth in the back/left of the main expo hall. If you are there, feel free to drop by and say hello.

MacBook Pro on eBay

Sunday, April 12, 2009 by darco

MacBookPro/DSC09811 I'm currently selling my old 15" MacBook Pro on eBay, item 250406106004.

Lets hope I have better luck than the last time I tried to sell a laptop on eBay.

In what can only be described as a bad omen, eBay actually suspended and blocked my account soon after I first listed this item! It took a few hours to try and work things out, but things seem fine now. But Jesus, what a pain in the ass.

Proposition 8 Passes

Wednesday, November 5, 2008 by darco

California has become the first state in the union to pass a constitutional amendment which eliminates the rights of a minority.

I'm disgusted and ashamed to live here.

Vote NO On Proposition 8

Sunday, November 2, 2008 by darco

vote-no-redI just wanted to let everyone know that I will be voting NO on proposition eight on November 4th. I personally see this as a civil rights issue.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, then you probably don't live in California. For your benefit, here is a quick explanation: Proposition eight will outlaw same-sex marriages, which are currently recognized by California state law. By voting "NO", I am voicing my opinion that same-sex marriages should have all of the same rights and privileges as a heterosexual marriage in the eyes of the law.

Proposition eight is a step backward for civil rights. If you live in California, I beg you to please vote "NO" on proposition eight!

Oh yeah, and I'll be voting for Obama too.

Hawaii

Friday, August 8, 2008 by darco

Now that my love has finished up her study program in Hawaii, I'll be flying over there to see what all the fuss is about. I'll be out all next week. I'm leaving my laptop behind (yes, it was my idea), so don't expect much IRC lurking or email responses.

Google Talk Issues

Friday, December 21, 2007 by darco

I realize that recently a lot of my friends have had a lot of trouble trying to contact me thru Google Talk. If you end up seeing me online, trying to send me a message, and getting an error in response, then try sending me an email or something. When I get some time over the next few days I'll try to debug the issue.

All of these problems seemed to crop up when my router died an untimely death a week or two ago. Probably related.
