Push Down Stack

Filed under: Personal — Les Bain @ 3:14 am

The common analogy for a push down stack is the stack of dishes at a buffet. Take one off the top and the next one pops up.

That is like what it has been for me lately. Do one critical task, the next one pops up. Work like crazy to try and get the stack down, but it just keeps getting reloaded. Maybe that is just life.

This has been a good week. I popped up a lot of dishes.

My son is going to be a Student Intern at SixApart working on Vox.com.  He invited me to sign up for Vox and check it out.  I have been checking out Vox, and it is always fun to check out a new site.

Vox is a personal blogging site, and a social media type site, so there are lots of comments, responses, and trackbacks.

Internet Presence

People that use the Internet create lots of accounts, registrations, blogs, and email accounts.  Does anyone ever try and clean it all up?  Does anyone ever go and delete all the accounts?

What happens when someone dies?  Does it all sort of diminish over time?

I keep track of accounts and passwords, but it would be an onerous task to try and clean it all up.

Easter

Filed under: Personal — Les Bain @ 12:03 pm

It is Easter weekend. Easter is a Christian holy day that celebrates what happened on a Jewish holy day and uses the Pagan fertility symbols of bunnies and eggs. I live near the city of Walnut Creek, and it got some notoriety recently because the local festivities used the term “Spring Bunny” instead of “Easter Bunny”. It was, of course, originally a spring bunny.

Good Friday

Filed under: Personal — Les Bain @ 1:59 pm

Because this is a holy day for many, work is lighter. It is also a time to take a quick breath, post to my blog, and catch up on email.
