It’s the alien attack countdown timer I bet

If you spent some of your drive in this morning cursing at your XM radio as the signal drifted in an out, you’re not alone.I did the same and so did pretty much everyone else. Apparently XM botched a software update and the problem is at the sats themselves.

And yes, I did a shout-out to a movie so dumb that it implied you could hack an alien spaceship with a Mac (on OS9 no less!) and that a space-faring race needed to use satellites for timing rather than a simple atomic clock. Sue me.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
