Nova Scotia and Denver

Published by under Uncategorized

Declan did some work travel to Nova Scotia and Denver.

The Access 2004 conference was held in Halifax, New Scotland this year. Here’s a view from my hotel room:

We did an Alexander Keith’s brewery tour:

I think that’s Alexander…

Then we did a pub crawl. Mmmm, beer!

So, what do you do when yer in a timezone 4 hrs ahead of yours at 3am?

Drink more and eat candy in a hospitality suite!

Very nice shopping and lunch place by the waterfront.

And this is the small boardwalk they have just outside the shopping center:

A nice lady (thanks Tanja!) from Acadia University offered to be my guide to the interior of Nova Scotia.

We drove to the valley (North of Halifax for about an hour) and I got some fall color shots:

One of the small towns in the area has a Pumpkin People theme:

Kinda creepy… 🙂

On Sunday, before hopping a plane to Denver, a couple of us drove up to Peggy’s Cove for breakfast and to see the Atlantic:

While in Denver, I got to see my brother, Aidan:

He tought me some hunting techniques:

I dunno, we had too many Jack and Cokes.

The Math of Murphy’s

Published by under Uncategorized

From, here’s how to compute and interpret Murphy’s Law.

((U+C+I) x (10-S))/20 x A x 1/(1-sin(F/10))

In the calculation, five factors have to be assessed: urgency (U), complexity (C), importance (I), skill (S) and frequency (F), and each given a score between one and nine. A sixth, aggravation (A), was set at 0.7 by the experts after their poll.

“So, if you haven’t got the skill to do something important, leave it alone. If something is urgent or complex, find a simple way to do it. If something going wrong will particularly aggravate you, make certain you know how to do it.”

Firefox Extension Play

Published by under Uncategorized

I’ve been playing a lot with Firefox, and this extension is really neat:


It’s kinda like hobo chalking for the web. Note that it uses a central server to store content. Some sort of local server would be more secure and let people limit who sees what.

Sage is a blog reader that I’ve replaced SharpReader with.
