So, you want a visa for Mozambique, eh?

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

I’m going to Mozambique soonish. For my trip, I was told I needed a visa. I was also told that this visa should be acquired prior to arriving in Mozambique. I did what any normal visa seeking person does, which is Google “Mozambique Visa”. Got a lot of weird sites this way, and ended up […]

Miss me?

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Yes, it’s been awhile. I’m not radio silent, though. I’m just articulating myself in 140 characters or less. I will start posting more regularly.

Kobo Update Chaos

Friday, December 17th, 2010

If you follow me on Twitter or know me in real life you’ve likely heard that I upgraded to the new version of the Kobo Desktop and eReader software. It was an awful experience that resulted in me resetting my unit to the factory defaults. This was particularly aggravating because the same thing happened the […]

Kobo + iPhone = Not so slick

Saturday, December 11th, 2010

I’m pretty disappointed in the Kobo/iPhone integration so far. I was eager to have a few books from my kobo library on my phone, so downloaded the Kobo App the first day I got Harley. When I launched the app and logged into my account I expected for my books to magically appear on the […]

My friends do cool things

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

I have friends doing interesting things. I thought I’d share a few of them. First there’s Nat who is working on a TOEFL iBT site. If I needed to learn English, I’m sure this would be super useful. Then there’s Lisa who has her startup Coupled Together with her husband Marc. They started their relationship […]

I’m a Matzoh Ball Princess

Friday, September 17th, 2010

I imagine most folks that read this blog already have heard the news via twitter or facebook or my loud mouth, but I feel like it’s worth a post anyway. Last week as the festivities for the Jewish New Year came to an end, and Mom was celebrating pulling off yet another delish lunch for […]

In Transit

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

I still take out some books from the Library in paper form when I can’t get them digitally and don’t want to buy them. It keeps my wrists strong since I have to hold up the heavy book instead of the light kobo. Haha. One thing that always strikes me as odd is how long […]

Kobo Story and Review

Friday, July 16th, 2010

This post is longer than it should be because I haven’t written in awhile, my code is taking a long time to compile these days, and it’s my blog so I’ll do what I want. I put headings so you can skip to the actual review part if you so choose Part 1: Where I […]

So, I have grown out of using the word “like” as my filler word when I speak. Its replacement: So. And it turns out I’m not alone – according to an article in the NY Times, my use of the word is one of the [few] ways I’m a stereotypical Software Developer So it is […]

Looking on the bright side

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

I have a tendency to get sick before/during vacations. So it was no surprise that I was coughing the week before I left to Mexico. I thought I nipped it in the bud with nasal spray and asthma meds, but lo and behold ended up sick in bed with a full blown sinus infection while […]
