Recover Evernote Files from iPad

Posted by Nathaniel

I have done numerous searches using phrases such as “access evernote data on ipad” or “database ipad access” the one which finally paid off was “access ipad app data” which took me to a StackOverflow question titled “How can I export an iPad app’s data to a computer?” and eventually to a link to Macroplant’s […]

Beyond Thunderdome

Posted by Mr. Scientist

The impetus for this post came while I was watching the 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open golf tournament today.  The tournament takes place at the TPC in Scottsdale, AZ and the 16th hole, a par 3, was designed like a baseball stadium.  The entire length of the hole has stands on one side and the […]

Let’s Talk About J.J. Abrams

Posted by Mr. Scientist

Since it has become official that J.J. Abrams will be directing Star Wars Episode VII, I guess I can start indulging my imagination in to what that might mean.  This has been my experience with Mr. Abrams: LOST – I really enjoyed Lost.  Although I must confess that I binge-watched it.  I came to the […]

One Giant Leap

Posted by Mr. Scientist

I’m constantly trying to think of ideas for sci-fi novels and when contemplating that it often devolves into thoughts of the future.  What will our future technology be?  What will our future clothes look like?  Will the human race still be confined to earth?  So much thought goes into the atmosphere of the future (atmosphere […]

Long time, now see

Posted by Nathaniel

It’s again been awhile since I posted. I’m thinking about a review, 6 months on, of my Galaxy S3. That said, why not make it now. Overall, I give the phone 7.5 stars out of 10. Reasons Durability: 6 I now have 3 cracks on the screen. 2 of which I made and the 3rd […]

2 reasons not to read the chicago tribune online

Posted by Nathaniel

After not having viewed the Chicago Tribune online for quite some time I was disappointed with the two articles I read tonight. Both contained glaring typos that any simple spell check or proof read should have caught. On top of that, each click of the mouse generated an ad pop-up that had to be closed […]

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, There May Still be Hope

Posted by Nathaniel

If you read this and happen to be my brother, you’ll understand. If you aren’t, read it anyway and lobby everywhere long and hard for such a vision…And continue to thank your lucky Stars that George Lucas had the creative sense (or was it lucrative sense?) to step aside from the galaxy he created so […]

sex dominates elmo

Posted by Nathaniel

As someone in the midst of studying, and very literally at the moment (in the other computer window) writing about Catholic Moral Theology the subject of the below link is very appropriate and also very disturbing. Disturbing to me that our society (read, American society) still gets worked up about other people’s sex lives. For […]

This scooter has been in roughly the same spot for quite awhile now. I assume it moves some, but one never knows. If you look at the seat, the mirror that came off has been sitting there for at least the last month. Of all the things that get stolen in Chicago, it amazes me […]

Juevos Locos

Craving some Crazy Spicy Eggs from Kitsch’n on Roscoe. Gotta spend the extra buck fifty and get avocado with it. Add a cup of Earl and you are all set. Wish I had a pic. Will have to go back soon to get one.

A Horse with No Name

Posted by Nathaniel

I haven’t written awhile. Frankly I haven’t had much to say. As our political season swings into yet another gear, I am again disillusioned with our system. I guess what I have to reconcile is that while we have a public government and public representation, the process of selecting those public figures is privately run. […]

I feel like Wedge Antilles

Posted by Nathaniel

Can you imagine how Wedge felt when Luke told him he couldn’t do any more good back there? That’s pretty much how I feel about life right now. I don’t mean to extend this sentiment to all of my responsibilities. Certainly as a father I know the good I am doing and will continue to […]

oh netflix

Posted by Nathaniel

Why won’t you let me search for DVDs, even if I don’t have a DVD plan? How am I to be enticed to upgrade if I can’t salivate over what you have that I can’t access at this time? You’re lack of DVD search for steaming only plans doesn’t compel me to pay to search, […]

It is time to leave Afghanistan

Posted by Nathaniel

The American military should be immediately withdrawn from Afghanistan. Drone strikes in foreign countries should cease. These two statements lack reasons on my part. I’m not interested in lengthy discourse at this time, rather I only wish to state my position with this brief entreaty. War is meant to break, to destroy, to maim and […]

A quick criticism of Pandora

Posted by Nathaniel

I really like Pandora. Without going into all that it does, this is a quick criticism of something it says it does but which, in my experience doesn’t work out so well. After a certain amount of time, Pandora will cease playing music and the page will show some text along these lines, “Are you […]

Is it too much to ask…?

Posted by Nathaniel

In a previous post I tore down the notion of ‘dictionary’ that permeates our digital creative world. Now, I wish to add something to the mix. Within Microsoft Word 2010 (I’m not sure if this functionality is usable in previous versions or not) one can utilize the built in Dictionary both as a spell checker […]

When did dictionary become merely spell check?

Posted by Nathaniel

While I should ostensbily be working on my grad school homework for the MACD program I am enrolled in at Marquette, I must pause and offer an insight which just arose as I was doing said homework. To functionally manage my work load I rely on a few key tools on my laptop, an msi […]
