Snowglobe 2015 – Logistics need not apply
January 21, 2016
We decided to spend this past New Years up at Lake Tahoe. Specifically we went to the 3 day concert extravaganza known as the Snowglobe Music Festival (or sometimes ‘Snerglerb’). There were a lot of good acts, some great acts, and it generally wasn’t horrible. However it appeared to me that the Snowglobe organizers really did not have a great grasp on the core logistics relating to putting on a music festival in Tahoe. Yes, the artists were there, music was played and alcohol was available. Beyond that there were numerous ways in which the event started to unravel. Depending on how cold (or grumpy) you were, it could make for a fairly miserable experience. I know I’m going to sound like a nitpicking a$$hole, but my post here is an honest attempt to highlight the failings I saw, in hopes that event organizers can be aware of these issues and potentially rectify them for next year.
A day with the iPad
September 17, 2010
Recently, I decided to challenge myself and actually use OSX (for a daily machine) and an iPad (because it was there). Part of this was to increase my familiarity with the devices and partially because my workplace runs basically all Mac. I was going to have to get used to them sooner or later, and sooner made sense since I had to support them. Anyways, at the same time I picked up one of the spare iPads to play with. The first time I had the iPad I futzed with it for a day or two then returned it. I borrowed it again and this time I’m trying to seriously use it.
