  • Boys [Online Dating Report #2] - Coping with Politics - Berlin Again. Repeat

    Posted March 9 by paikea

    1. The thing with dating, is that sometimes, it is actually addicting. I narrowed down my pool to three. And started cultivating things. One by one, I narrowed them down. The first one who I had to strike out was the academic - closest to my age - separated, two little kids, one adult kid. really ni...

  • Don’t dodge Neon

    Posted March 9 by Jack Yan

    On the sad news that Cyberfox will soon call it a day, with the browser unsupported beyond 2018, I began searching for alternatives. Depending on how much memory it sucks up, I might go to Pale Moon. Waterfox, which I used on and off before Cyberfox, wound up being a real memory hog. However, I gave...

  • Losing Ground

    Posted March 9 by Liv

    Every Day I assign myself One Thing that I must get done that day. Today it's not an urgent thing, it's just I was getting close to having it done (but had left it until late in the day) and then my best-paying work client came online and asked me for help with something ... and just as I got starte...

  • Tech down

    Posted March 8 by Jack Yan

    What a crazy 24 hours in technology-land.   Last night, the Swype keyboard on my phone died. No matter what I did, I was stuck. I now believe that the word list had become corrupted, but I really needn’t have feared, as I had signed up to sync the list with the cloud. But since every...

  • This Fox news isn’t much better

    Posted March 7 by Jack Yan

    Sometimes, certain politicians should not be let on to Twitter. All they do is prove they ain’t as smart as the rest of us. Unsurprisingly, Dr Fox, somewhat delusional based on the above Tweet, is a pro-Brexiteer.

  • Family ties

    Posted March 6 by Jonathan

    These guys! They can make any day feel good, even a Monday morning. Rhiannon is a senior in high school, with big plans and an even bigger heart. I can barely even think about her moving away in the fall without my heart breaking a little bit. While Spenser is 12 years old, going on 4 years old an...

  • The rednecks’ last hurrah

    Posted March 6 by Jack Yan

    How come white supremacy refers to a tiny subset of whites who exhibit inferiority?   Unlike the cowardly, anonymous fool hiding behind their keyboard, I actually can speak for a decent portion of my country and my community, especially when you take the numbers I got in my last conteste...

  • Double rainbow

    Posted March 5 by Jack Yan

    We had to go somewhere to get summer since Wellington didn’t offer us one. Sure, it rained in Papeete on the second day—for 10 minutes. Then we saw this. The second rainbow’s a bit faint, but it is there.  

  • Walkies

    Posted February 28 by Jonathan

    Spenser the dog and I went for a long walk yesterday while we waited for the Subaru to get new tires. We are pretty lucky here in Medford MA, as we have lots of great outdoorsy places to go for being no more than a 20 minute drive to downtown Boston. There's always the Middlesex Fells, which is a ...

  • Ebony and Ivory

    Posted February 25 by Streetvein

    Today's political climate takes me to another dark place in American history... in 1995 when OJ Simpson was aquitted of murdering two white people, I felt like an alien because I was the only white person among my friends and family who understood and agreed with the innocent verdict.  They cou...

  • Mental Hibernation / im Winterschlaf im Kopf

    Posted February 23 by paikea

    I don't know about you guys, but I have been finding this whole political climate so incredibly horrific and crushing that sometimes I can hardly breathe. I think this election was bad enough, but as debilitating as that was mentally, in the weeks [and yes, it has literally only been weeks] since th...
