Linky Link

I want this for my birthday. How to attract women. Google wants to bring 1 gigabit per second internet to you. Adam Giambrone throws in the towel.I’m iffy on this. I wouldn’t have voted for the man, because of the state of the TTC, but to have to drop out of the race because of his personal life isn’t right. Did you know they still do a MacWorld Expo? Why? Seriously, why? Google Street View… let’s visit the Yukon River in Whitehorse. Valentines day mixtape courtesy of Monitor Mix. Dear Carrie Brownstein, will you be my valentine? Fake Simpsons words that belong in the dictionary. (Courtesy of swhibbsy) via The… Read More »Linky Link

Rebranding

Today, I said to myself that it was time to rebrand this page. Though it’s a personal page, it’s more about music/film/etc than it is about Adam Anklewicz. So after debating over many domains, I chose this one, neverhadtofight.com. “Never Had To Fight” is a Local Rabbits song written by Peter Elkas. It’s the second track on their final, and best record This Is It, Here We Go. I did this in the afternoon today, about an hour ago, I got a message in MSN from Jay… you know, Trig… from The Board. A while ago, I told him that Gooseberry records was doing a Sloan tribute album, and a… Read More »Rebranding

Domain

So, this is hosted at anklewicz.com, and I’m thinking that the content of this, it might not be the best way to sell it. I’d keep anklewicz.com, and have it redirect to a new domain, and continue to be my primary domain. So I’m thinking of classic songs (in my mind, ie, ’90s Canadian indie rock) and using titles for the domain. Unfortunately sweetrelease.com is not available. I want opinions. 400metres.com cutmythroat.com everythingwritesitself.com ferdinanddesaussure.com neverhadtofight.com reasonwhyimshy.com secretforjulie.com songsforthegang.com waitingforslowsongs.com waitingforsloansongs.com

Vistek Part II

First off, I should say the tripod arrived the next day. I also got a call from “Paul” making sure it arrived, again thanking and apologizing to me. I also just received this email. Hi Adam,  I’m the Project Manager at Vistek and I also head up Customer Relations.  I have been working here for over 15 years and most of my years here were as Ron’s Executive Assistant.  I have handled many transactions for Ron’s customers including Leo Baeck Day School.  I was informed about your experience at Vistek and as I’m still shocked about the entire incident, I’m writing to apologize to you.  I am truly sorry that… Read More »Vistek Part II

The Life of a Working Girl

I hate report cards. For those not in the know, I work in a school. I’m the IT Manager. I’m a professional geek, in other words. We’re now onto the first full report. Today is the day that reports are due to be printed, for self-review (so they can be passed onto the administration for proofing on Monday). Obviously the entire faculty has been entering marks and writing comment this week, and this week alone. My phone has not stopped ringing, my email has not stopped chiming, the school uses Google Apps for its email service, and with a IM widget right in the sidebar (unlike FirstClass’ IM function, no… Read More »The Life of a Working Girl

Being There

What’s a good level between easy of use and security? I’m not sure. I’ve installed reCAPTCHA on instance of WordPress, I don’t think it’ll stay, I just wanted to try it out and see if it works. It does. I installed it on Being There’s instance of WordPress and there it’ll live, but is it too annoying for the average user, thus stopping them from commenting?

Captcha

The best captcha I have ever seen…

Ankle: The Font

OMG! I love this! You can make your own font here.

“I Am The Teacher” by The Germans

HistoryJen posted an article for a contest she’s running for free tickets to see Schomberg Fair and The Germans at The Garrison, here in Toronto. She concluded it with the following video by The Germans. I had to post it, too.

The Wave

Google Wave is kinda boring on your own. Who wants to befriend me? My account is google at mydomain dot calm. I also have eight invites. Who wants one?
