Dion: “Yeah, Ben has a ten-year-old picture of himself on his blog.” I hadn’t realized that I looked any different. Ouch.
I get a badge so I can enter a client’s secure facility. As an employee walks me over to test it, we notice the main door is propped open with a dead-bolt. He closes the dead-bolt and shuts the door so we can test my new badge. After the door successfully opens and we walk […]
I’ve just recently come back home after a month on the road. Consequently, I’m running behind on a few things, such as my email. Ah yes. My email. I hate email. I find my emotional state is governed too often by my email. Or more specifically, the vertical scrollbar in the email application. What I […]
I recently watched the excellent “Judgment at Nuremberg” and so was interested to see that the lead translator during the trials in Nuremberg, Richard W. Sonnenfeldt, has written a book detailing his experiences and is giving a lecture in New Jersey next week. A summary of his experiences in a local newspaper reveals some fascinating […]
Seen on a random night on a random street in mid-town: Two Bentleys, one of which was left parked over-night on the side of a busy street sandwiched between a Hyundai and a Honda. In a parking garage on the same street on the same night: another Bentley and an Aston Martin DB9. Mercedes Benz […]

Look before turning into second garage with big “Open 24 Hours” sign. Closed. Repeat with a third. […]
There are dozens of great reviews of the Apple TV out there. I echo Walt Mossberg’s review: just worked, streams like a dream from any computer in the house, and finally offers my wife a way to use our digital content without me around to help. I have some additional observations: The kids love the […]
I’ve decided to rename my blog from “Married… with Children” to the boring-yet-more-informative “Ben Galbraith’s Blog”. But don’t worry, I’m still happily married with a whole pile of kids to show for it.
UPDATE: iMovie ’08 now supports AVCHD. Just in time for the holidays, our old JVC miniDV camcorder broke. We used it just a handful of times in the years since we purchased it, but we’re convinced that now we’re finally ready to start recording all those home movies that friends and relatives love to watch.
