Sometimes Things Take a Little Longer, There an Gulf Coast Time.

Recently I’ve heard the song “Gulf Coast Time” by Roger Creager a lot on Radio Margaritaville. It’s a nice song, and it’s even nicer that iTunes has the lyrics. Or at least it says it has the lyrics. I don’t think they’re quite right. Here’s what iTunes has… Yeah… I’m not sure what the town… Continue reading Sometimes Things Take a Little Longer, There an Gulf Coast Time.

The Single Biggest Problem in Web Development Is…

Not a big deal – the contact system is very functional and takes very little time to update. It’s a push to de-centralize updating it, which… Continue reading The Single Biggest Problem in Web Development Is…

Your Geek Squad Badge Just Isn’t Worth That Much

When will Geek Squad employees (or ex-employees) learn that their badges are not worth > $100, even if… They were a deputy counter intelligence (While Double Agent badges are most common, deputy badges come up about once every 2 months) they have a low number (Unless it’s less than 100, nobody cares) I’ve seen badges… Continue reading Your Geek Squad Badge Just Isn’t Worth That Much
