Definition: Goose/Gander Assertion

"A Goose/Gander assertion"

A logical fallacy where you draw a parallel between objects that are not, in fact, equal.  Sometimes called a False Analogy, this assertion leverages the children's rhyme which states "what is good for the goose is good for the gander."

Ticket to Ride

I remember seeing this on Tabletop, a show on the Geek and Sundry Youtube.  It looks like a good family game.

Amazon's Cyber Monday

Amazon's Cyber Monday has a lot of really good deals.  I'm surprised!

I didn't know I was so articulate!

An excerpt of an old blog post of mine ended up on Merriam Webster:


I need to work on publicizing my next word:


Any software development done solely for the purpose of demoing to executives.

"I don't have time to fix a production issue, I have to finish the demoliverable before the presentation on Monday."

I still have trouble believing a 20Mbps download speed.

Ai, Caramba! What a difference a new modem can make!

Great Deal on Ooma

$169.99 (or maybe $189.99) after price match & coupon. But some people have trouble with the coupon, so it's back up to $199.99 (which is what I got mine for).

Ooma is clearing out old stock before Telo appears. It comes with a DECT 6.0 phone that has all the Ooma buttons right on the phone. I have to walk over to the Ooma device if I want to do a conference call or send a call directly to voice mail. Oh, the horrors!

Just found this great program that lets you lay out your desktop according to grids that are stored as templates. Just choose the template you want, then you can drag a window to an open grid position and it will snap to the correct size.

If you want to use multiple apps at the same time and don't want to try to manage their sizes yourself, this is a great little tool.

Beat that!
