The flu bug that hit my family this past week-end finally got hold of me yesterday. What fun. The good news is that it seems to pass fairly quickly. At least it did with Lorraine and Matthew.
A few random links from my travels on the web.
The guitar you would never sell? Strats, Teles, LPs and PRSs. I had to sell a 1970s Strat to raise funds for University. I was not sad to see it go back then. Nor, for that matter, now. It was a terrible guitar. I have a 1990s Strat that I would not be sad to sell either. But the Tom Anderson and the new Collings? Those machines are keepers. I would also keep my PRS Custom, my 1976 Les Paul, my 1984 Ibanez AS200 and my Fender Jazz bass.
If you are a couch potato investor, then you might want to check the unveiling of the 2011 portfolio models. Who knew that passive investing could be so complicated?
I spent some time checking out website designs from ten to fifteen years back using the Internet Archive:Wayback Machine. Cool. They even have richardcleaver.com from 2004. Not a bad blog design if I do say so myself.
Too little, too late. Yes indeed. On a number of fronts.
The best job on the planet? In technology of course. Specifically, a software engineer. I always thought that an enterprise architect was the best job.
