The Installer failed and looped endlessly. You should be ashamed. Recently I bought an HP Photoshare 7510, a pretty nice printer/scanner that brings me up to the wireless age. I’ve had a few problems setting up the software though. My Mac had a few hiccups with the scanning from the printer feature, and Karey’s Windows… Continue reading Why Do Printers Still Suck?
So those of you who noticed my Short Story of the Day project a few months back probably realized that I am much more comfortable with writing than drawing. I tell the anecdote time and time again that I have no idea how someone who has artists for parents can’t muster up more than a… Continue reading The Pirate and The Butterfly (And The Man)
By Dr. Jonathan E. Westfall (Totally a real Dr… Just not a Medical one…) Cupcakes Are Your Savior So you’re fat. How do I know that? Well because you’re reading a diet book. Well, I guess you might just want something interesting to read while on vacation, or perhaps you know me personally and are… Continue reading The Cupcake Diet

In their own words… Our friendships and professional connections have moved online, making influence measurable for the first time in history. When you recommend, share, and create content you impact others. Your Klout Score measures that influence on a scale… Continue reading An Influential Drinker Reviews Lipton Tea & Honey Mango Pineapple Iced Green Tea
I’m writing this from the window seat of Metro-North Railroad’s car 6306. Almost 3 years ago when I started taking these trains I kept a list of the cars that I’d been on, curious when I’d repeat cars. It took about 2 weeks. I’ve probably been on 6306 many times over the past years, mostly… Continue reading Day in the NYC Life
So I’m not normally a forgetful person. In fact, sometimes I recall things that surprise others around me (i.e. random birthdays, etc…). And one thing I’ve never had trouble remembering is the tasks that I have to get done, both long and short-term. Major parts of my job(s) don’t fall through the cracks. So why… Continue reading To Do Lists For Sanity’s Sake!
List Updated Through #70! For the past month two and a half months I’ve been posting a variety of original stories and poems here. If you aren’t a regular visitor, you probably haven’t noticed them since I haven’t published them to Twitter or any other network. But since we’ve gotten to the 1 month mark… Continue reading What is Jon’s “Short Story A Day?”

When I mention this to people, I generally get a sorta weird look. Sort of a “If you aren’t doing anything illegal [which I’m not, if you care], why do you… Continue reading Encryption – It’s Not Just For The Paranoid
A friend of mine recently posted on Facebook that he was going to try to start using Evernote again. As someone who went through the same on-again-off-again thing with Evernote for a few years before falling in love, I figured I’d share how I got Evernote to be a useful addition to my life. The… Continue reading Selling You on Evernote
