Doing More With Less Since 1972

I’m reading– February 27th through March 10th

Mandatory DNA sampling threatens constitutional liberties – Check out my boy BCM in the Washington Examiner.

Spotlight-Chasing Candidates of 2012 – Some of these things are not like the others. Mr. Will focuses on two of the three spotlight-chasers. Thankfully, he doesn't even give the third a passing mention.

Make a Local Backup Of Your Gmail Account – Was just telling someone how awesome the cloud is…and how you need to have every bit of it backed up locally.

Triathlon as a means of birth control – I'm only one case study, but I can't recommend this method. One thing they didn't discuss is what happens to testosterone levels when training is cut back (post "big" race). That may explain a lot in my case.

The changing face of fame – Based on the "stars without makeup" photos I've seen, I credit improvements in makeup and lighting mostly. I have a feeling Natalie Wood and Audrey Hepburn didn't look too shabby in sweats at the grocery store.

Stuff You Should See– January 11th through January 15th

15 Steps to Cultivate Lifelong Learning – Very nice article here. Even though I sort of know all of these things intuitively, I need to be more active in implementing some of them.

Cocaine in Space Shuttle Hangar – And no mention of it in the local paper. At least no mention I could find. Interesting

Twitter’s Answer To Facebook Connect – I'm pretty close to breaking it off with Facebook for good. This is only fuel to the fire.

How to Tether Your Android Phone – Nirvana

Iphone VS Girlfriend – Maybe 2010 will be the year this type situation gets a clever name.

And How Are Things in Venezuela? – People spending their money needlessly because there's no point in maintaining savings in a soon to be devalued currency. Only in South America, right?

Top 10 Fighters – MMA Pound for Pound – I'd like to see these guys in a "Ten Men Enter, One Man Leaves" battle royale. I think if Anderson Silva could use his quickness to stay in open space for the first 15 minutes, he may come out as the real ultimate fighter.

Twitter’s traffic in trouble? – Scoble has a ton of advice for Twitter. My advice for Twitter: be Twitter and nothing else. Get rid of the 140 character limit? No way! Add comments? No way! Besides, do we really think Twitter could implement all these things without Fail Whaling left and right. Just be Twitter and be good at it, thanks!

Delicious Link Dump– December 17th through December 18th

Using Google Apps? 5 Ways to Avoid Getting Hacked – I really need to get around to doing these things. Looks like you could make it happen in less than 15 minutes and save yourself a lot of heartache.

WordPress 2.9, oh so fine – Just updated, and this should force a post. The image editor and easy video embed are nice!

Common Laptop/Netbook Positions to Avoid – I'm just going to pretend I didn't see this.

Nullification: Friend of Liberty – Well Texas?

Jesus Was Cool – "Be nice to each other." Pretty simple. But wait, there's more…

Developer Resources for Android – This is on my to-do list. I swear. I even have an app idea that will be huge for a very small market.

Jerry Taylor discusses global warming on the premiere of Stossel – I missed this inaugural episode and haven't had a chance to watch this yet, but it looks to be interesting

Drunk Four Year Old Steals Christmas Presents – Shock and awe.

Delicious Link Dump– October 26th through October 29th

Davidson County (TN) GOP Moves To Oust Ron Paul-Supporting Vice Chair – I've quietly followed this for a while. It seems to be a classic case of "I'll push you away so I can cry when you don't love me."

Facebook Grabs For The Entire Web – All your faces will belong to us.

The Key to a Happy Marriage…. – In every instance of this article, you can exchange the word "man" for "marriage", and it still makes sense. Just saying.

We Are Living in an Ayn Rand Novel – You know I always wanted to pretend I was an architect.

AZ County GOP Pols Squash 1st Amendment Rights – Republicans just can't stand to see Democrats doing something and not jump on the bandwagon themselves.

Sprint Drops Call Forwarding Fees With Google Voice In Mind – NICE!!! Just read yesterday that Google Voice would let you port your number and I was cursing my 2 year contract. Thanks Sprint for doing more for your customers!

Gallup’s Conservatives and Libertarians – Once you know how you should be labeled, is it easier to accept the label?

Susan Finkelstein Arrested, Prostitution For World Series Tickets – Dumb idea to start with. What guy with World Series tickets is going to trade them for sex?

Toxic Chinese Drywall Creates A Housing Disaster – Good to know about when looking for houses in Florida.

Rockslide Could Close I-40 For Three Months?!?! – Wow…good thing no one was hurt.
