Unposted

I've posted very little to this blog in the past six months. This has not been due to a lack of ideas, but a failure on my part of follow through. That said, while I haven't and likely won't post anything about any of these topics, I want to at least post about what I would have written about, had I more time, ambition, talent, and will.

So, in the spirit of almost posts and ungestated threads, here is my "Unposted" list for 2007:

Darwin Martin House - I had planned to write something about a visit my wife and I made earlier in the year to the (Frank Lloyd Wright) Darwin Martin House, currently under restoration in Buffalo, NY. Since I didn't, you can learn more about this major renovation effort here.

Paring Down - I have too many books and was going to post about the frightening prospect and process of paring down. Though I wasn't successful in writing about this, I have made progress in paring down my books, mostly through donations and ebay sales.

Siriusly - When we bought our GTI, we recieved a free three month trial of Sirius satellite radio. I was going to talk about the service and why it wasn't for us.

Three Days of Rain - Early in the year, we went to the theater and saw Three Days of Rain (a play by Richard Greenberg). I was going to comment on the play, but have long since forgotten what I was going to say.

Technorati Blog Post - I had planned to say something about Ravenweb's ranking on Technorati.

New Yahoo! Mail - As a Yahoo! mail user, I was going to write about Yahoo's updated webmail, and how I thought it was a kick-ass application.

Superhero Movies List - Not that the world needs any more of these, but I was considering making a list of superhero movies, and calling out the best of the bunch (Spider-Man 2) and the duds (Superman Returns).

The Chaneysville Incident by John Bradley

I read a lot of books, and sometimes even manage to comment about them here. More often that not, I enjoy most of the books I post about. This is probably because (admittedly) I look for books by authors I already know or that I have an inkling -- from word of mouth or reviews -- that I'll enjoy. Still, you never know when you're going to read a book that you really like or that makes others pale in comparison. The Chaneysville Incident is such a novel. I came to read The Chaneysville Incident after asking for suggestions for a big book for my long flights to and from Japan. One of my work colleagues suggested it, and though I'd never heard of it or author John Bradley, I decided to give it a try. I'm really glad I did. On the surface, the novel is a well-honed and affecting story of historian John Washington's attempt to discover what happened to thirteen runaway slaves in Chaneysville, Pennsylvania. The protagonist's efforts to reconstruct the past eleva

Configuring a Wireless HP Photosmart C4380

Updated on 2009-11-16: It's been over a year since I wrote this, and lot of people continue to find this page from Google, which leads me to believe that people are still having problems with their HP Photosmart C4380s. For the record, over a year later the workaround I detailed here is still working for me. If you have something to add that might help others, please feel free to add to the comments. The original post follows below. ##   So, we bought a wireless printer. After some initial back and forth, we settled on a wireless HP Photosmart C4380. I thought we did a fair bit of research before purchasing the product, but apparently not enough, as there were many issues and surprises that we discovered only after we setup the device. I'm posting this to relate the significant difficulties we encountered setting up the printer and post workarounds I've implemented for the benefits of others who might be considering this product or who may have already purchased it
