Bigger Mike

I hit the cookies pretty hard during the recent long, hard winter. Now I'm trying to hit the gym even harder -- to avoid Dunlap's Syndrome (that's when your belly has done lapped over your belt).

(I appreciate zaftig, but it's not a look I care to sport myself ;-)

Techno-lust 3: env phone

I recently got an LG ENV phone. It has a keyboard that is just large enough for my big fingers.

Now I need to figure out what do with my old (circa 2005) Samsung phone.

Techno-lust 2: Asus Eee PC

Asus Eee 4G-Galaxy 7" PC -- $400.

Techno-lust 1: Sony Reader

I played with a Sony Reader at Border's today ($300). Very nice. I like its form factor better than the Kindle. You have to jump through some hoops to get it to work with a Mac, unfortunately.

It's supposed to work fine with Project Gutenberg. That is a real plus for me, since I enjoy reading "classics" but am trying to drastically reduce my book clutter.

An engineer's guide to cats

Review: Forgetting Sarah Marshall

A great comedy about people getting out of ruts in their lives. Ebert's review.

Another "credit cookie"

Iron Man has a nice credit cookie for those who read a lot of comics back in the day.
