YouTube Collection - April 1

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Uncategorized     #     ๐Ÿ—จ One Comment

As I started to watch the clip about YouTube collection I thought, wtf? Why would anyone order a DVD collection of all YouTube videos? As the April Fool's joke quickly dawned on me, I wondered how much data YouTube actually has and how many DVD's it will fit on. I certainly have no idea, but — Continue reading ยป

Star Trek Blood Donation

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Uncategorized         ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

After donating a pint of blood to the Red Cross a few days ago, I got a blue mark on my forearm that looked eerily similar to the Star Trek insignia. As a trekkie, I was only too happy with this temporary tattoo. Of course it didn't last long and it has pretty much faded — Continue reading ยป

Winning the Final game against Butler (53-41), UConn, my alma mater, claimed the men's basketball title for 2011. This despite the fact that expectations for a UConn win weren't so high.

Yahoo terminated the program recently and apparently they sent final checks (or is it cheques? Whatever) to all affiliates, active or not. I just happened to find my Yahoo check in a — Continue reading ยป

The movie, The Stepford Wives, was filmed there. I work in a city adjacent to New Canaan and sometimes browse the listings to see what I can't afford. A couple of — Continue reading ยป

Politics of SQL Left Join and Right Join

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Uncategorized         ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

The other day I was helping a colleague with an SQL statement and I noticed he had a left join in his query.
