apparently, the new atempo slogan for selling our core product, time navigator (nicknamed TiNa), isn’t taking off quite as expected. research found that TiNa is actually street slang for crystal meth and so we’re attracting a whole different type of clientele.

google has introduced a street-level view of various cities in their google maps application, including san francisco. for example, here’s at&t park, where the giants play. also recently caught on camera was this man leaving the famous mitchell brothers strip club in the middle of the day with a grin on his face. caught!
UPDATE: mashable.com has the top 15 google earth sightings so far, including perv guy coming out of the o’farrell theatre.
it took the daughter 15 years, but she finally ate her first vegetable.
it was pretty much by accident as she scarfed down some chicken dish from panda express when this weird green thing entered her mouth. she continued to chew until she realized what it was at which point the legume intruder was forcefully ejected on the plate. no rash has shown up as of yet, but we’ll keep the vigil going through the night and report back in the morning. let’s all hope that she pulls through this unfortunate turn of events.
so, this morning i head to my car and find the center console door opened up with a couple things hanging out and also find the glove box door opened. i appear to be the victim of a simple auto robbery outside of my own house. i had an ipod inside the center console and that was gone. i had some other stuff in the car, but it was left untouched. i usually park my cars inside the garage but i had been storing the audi in there while i’m selling it and parking the civic in the driveway. so, i guess i was lucky that i only had a little bit inside the car. no sign of forced entry means that the door must have been unlocked. oh yeah, they took the flea medicine for the cats that was in the front seat. nice. the lesson learned in all of this? buy a gun and sleep on your porch.
attended liz’s memorial day get-together at her place on saturday night. the last couple hours were foggy but apparently i was dancing for at least a small portion of the night. i was skeptical of this news because felicia also added that i was ‘dancing well’. if anyone has seen me dance, they know it resembles a handicapped person having a seizure. i still want to see some proof. below, two fine ladies with authentic costumes rasslin’ around 3am:
recovered on sunday and had a little family bbq on monday. marcos was in good spirits even though it looks like he’s coming down with some rashy-type thing. could just be heat rash, but could be the pox. yikes. looks like my intense coaching has helped him take more photogenic pictures.
also, the nerdy news of the weekend is that i got our exchange server working well at home. still need a good spam graylister on the smtp server, but otherwise we’re in decent shape. sonic has agreed to backup mx my server. tite!
i managed to fritter another week away without much to show for it. i’m hoping i can make something happen during this long holiday weekend. read these stories to prepare yourself for your three days off:

so, at work and once in a while at home, i’ll walk by someone using the computer and i notice them doing a quick minimize or window switch to hide what they were looking at. i doubt it’s particularly dirty, but its probably something not related to what they should be doing. alyssa might hide a myspace page with her homework website and someone at work might be hiding an irc chat session with a work website. it’s obvious what they are doing, usually. if this happens once in a while, not a big deal, but for some people, every time you walk by (especially if you walk quietly), there’s some quick mouse action to cover up their wrongdoing.
for these people, i have found this privacy shroud to prevent the casual over-the-shoulder eavesdropping at what might be happening on the screen. the middle frame shows a travel-size “mobile shroud” for blackberry use on-the-go.
