There is more of me in this cartoon than I care to admit.

“Is the N in NFL for Nancy?”

The Dallas Stars have gone on the offensive, and hockey season hasn’t even started yet. As part of a new ticket sales campaign, several billboards have gone up around the Dallas metroplex, poking fun at the other three major sports, all represented in the metro area. The jab at baseball is a little weak, if you ask me, and the obvious NBA poke is time- and scandal-sensitive.

My favorite of the billboards, however, is the funniest and the most enduring. Taking a shot at the NFL, it reads:

Take that, Cowboy fans.

Yet another reason I love Twitter

(And why you should be following my Twitter feed, if you’re not already.)

Daniel Jalkut:

The best thing about using Twitter for chat is you’re never online, and you’re always online. As far as the world is concerned.

Frisco RoughRiders, 28 July 2007

IMG_4390.JPG So my “last hurrah” before foot surgery was an outing to the ballpark in Frisco, home of the AA RoughRiders. It’s a nice park, and there’s not really a bad seat in the house.

Fortunately for us, we had really great seats, thanks to a church member who passed on six Founders’ tickets to Nathan, who kindly invited my wife and I to attend. Also along for the outing was Nathan’s wife Kim, perennial pal Brent, and Brent’s baseball-loving daughter, Kelsey.

We had a great time taking advantage of the all-you-can eat and drink benefit that came with Founders’ tickets, so much so that we missed the first inning, and the only scoring the game would see! The game may have been “boring” from the lack-of-scoring perspective, but I had a great time being out at a baseball game with my wife and great friends, and took some photos to boot.

Victims of tyranny?

John Farnam had this quote in a recent post on his mailing list, and I thought it significant.

In a state of tranquillity, wealth, and luxury, our descendants will forget the Art of War and the noble zeal which made their ancestors invincible. Every corruption will be employed to loosen the bond of union which renders our resistance formidable. When the spirit of liberty, which now animates our hearts and gives success to our arms, is extinct, our numbers will accelerate our ruin and render us easy victims to tyranny. —Sam Adams

Today’s head-smacker

Overheard by Jeff Harrell earlier today:

Wouldn’t it be great if the people who made the iPhone also made a computer?

Really? Really?!?

ATPM 13.08

The August issue of About This Particular Macintosh is now available.

In this month’s Bloggable, Wes makes sure to avoid coverage of “the largest technology premiere since the launch of Windows 95”, which would be the debut of the iPhone. Well, he almost avoids it, but does feature a round-up from the blogosphere concerning the WorldWide Developers Conference, the continuing chase to unmask Fake Steve Jobs, and the tale of Photoshop’s birth. Mark, meanwhile, has found a great benefit in the .Mac service over what he’s been getting from his local broadband provider.

Paul delivers a well-rounded meal of web sites for your browsing digestion, including subway maps, fast food ads versus reality, and a digitally-reproduced manuscript of Portuguese sonnets. Part of getting to the next action in GTD is processing. This month, Ed takes a look at processing reference material, which can play an important role in exactly what action you’ll choose. In the latest Photoshop for the Curious, Lee offers a resolution tutorial. (That would be screen resolution. Conflict resolution…well, that’s another publication.)

This month’s desktop pictures are courtesy of staffer David Thompson, and feature scenery from a recent motorcycle trip through parts of Texas and Utah. Cortland finds himself in a spot of trouble with the fuzz, while Angie is paid an unexpected visit. Meanwhile, evil plans are afoot to acquire the Cortland OS.

Andrew enjoys some screen time thanks to El Gato’s EyeTV Hybrid, while Frank Wu offers a double-dose of MagSafe adapters—the Portable Power Station from Battery Geek, and Mikegyver’s MagSafe 120w AC/DC Car/Airline Adapter—for MacBooks and MacBooks Pro. Finally, Linus finds learning fun with Travelogue 360 Paris. I kind of wish my son was older so he and I could play this game together.

As usual, this issue of ATPM is available in a variety of formats for your reading pleasure.
