Apparently people with tattoos covering their wrist are having trouble with the Apple Watch wrist detection feature. I guess Apple needs to hire more heavily inked beta testers.
I have switched themes quite a few times on this blog, but this time I decided to shell out a few dollars for a more professionally developed theme based on the well know Genesis Framework. I will be making small tweaks in the coming days/weeks, but the theme is here to stay.
Mobile users represent about half of all the traffic I receive here, so they should welcome this change as the new theme is built on Responsive HTML 5 code.
In an attempt to save money towards buying our own house in a few years, my wife and I just moved to a cheaper rental. I took the opportunity to re-evaluate my cable tv situation and decided to bite the bullet and get rid of cable altogether.
In our old house we were paying $158 per month for Verizon Fios double play with 75mpbs internet connection and a mid level tv package.

People with no regrets have no need to defend themselves because they genuinely don’t care what small minded people have to say about their personal choices.
The fact the person made a blog about it, tells me that he is not completely secure about having tattoos.
The first thing I need to share are all of the times in my life where I was treated poorly due to my tattoos. I will detail each and every instance of discrimination in the workplace, every case where someone made a negative comment about my tattoos and each and every case where I thought I was treated different in any way because of my tattoos. I hope everyone is ready. [Read more…]
