Here’s your weekend comments thread with a dose of gratitude

We have Monday off because others gave their lives for it.

Monday is Memorial Day in the U.S., and while many of us will be grilling burgers or otherwise enjoying a relaxing long weekend, we should remember why we have it.

I’m not one to glorify why we need armed forces. As a child too young to understand, I can remember each evening when several of my mother’s friends would join us to watch the news; that’s  [Read More…]

Your weekend comments are open for business

Weekends are best spent with friends and family. Or in a comfy chair if you’re Rex the Dachshund.

That’s Rex. He’ll be 15 in September and he is my new life coach and is going to help me learn to relax and let things go. He spends most of the day sitting here in my office on his ridiculous chair knowing that he’s in charge of the important things like when is lunch and is it too  [Read More…]

It’s time for a clean and tidy weekend comments thread!

Untangling cables will make you go crazy. Let’s help each other stay sane.

I ordered a treat for myself: a big, soft, fancy-pants leather office chair. I really didn’t want to spend the money, but the last chair I bought sucked and sitting in the wheelchair at my desk sucks even worse, so I had to. It will be here Monday and I want to move my desk out of the sun for summer, so that means  [Read More…]

Let’s cheer each other up in the weekend comments thread!

We should be happy over the weekend, so let’s do this.

This is one of those rare weekends when I’m sad that I’m not working. Or at least not getting ready for work stuff.

For the first time in about 10 years I’m not getting ready to head to Google I/O and it’s bothering me a little. And to be honest, it’s also making me a little annoyed. I’ve had to deal with some back surgery over  [Read More…]

Grilling up some weekend comments

Weekends were made for having fun and relaxing or both if you can find a way to do it.

This weekend is the first weekend in a while where I can sit back and say “I ain’t doin’ sh*t all day” and I’m loving it.

Somehow there always ends up being something that needs done (and I guess the weekend isn’t over just yet so I probably jinxed myself) even when I plan to do a whole  [Read More…]

Your weekend comments are back and ready for anything

Every weekend is the best weekend as long as the company is good.

Howdy, everyone!

I hope all the Weekend Regulars (I like the sound of that and may have t-shirts printed) are doing well and everything’s fine and dandy in your corner of the planet. I am back and raring to go after a proper vacation where fruity mixed drinks outnumbered beeping phones by about 40:1, and that means this is like one of the best  [Read More…]

Wade into your weekend comments

So many fish, so little time.

It’s my favorite time of year. Not because of any tech products we might have seen or talked about, or things that we can buy. Nope. It’s the time of year when the trout are still biting and the weather is good enough that I can get to them. This is the time of the year when I can mosy down to the creek, get my fishing line wet and if I’m lucky,  [Read More…]

Take a trip to Barcelona in this week’s comments thread

What are you up to this weekend?

Our bosses do everything they can so we have weekends off around here. I love them for it, even though I’m that one guy who doesn’t mind “working” Saturday and Sunday in exchange for time off throughout the week. Having Monday be your Friday is pretty awesome.

All that goes out the window whenever there is a tech “thing” going on somewhere and we have to be there to cover it. This  [Read More…]

Your weekend comments thread is here, so take a break and chat it up

Whether working or playing (or both), everyone can enjoy a minute or two of internet-ing with friends.

I thought I would be taking advantage of a spell of warm weather and getting outside to spend some time with my favorite hobby — fiddling around with some woodworking tools — but instead, I’m stuck inside watching it rain on this dreary Saturday afternoon. Bleh. I need to get my mind clear and I have a chess set to get done  [Read More…]

A weekend comments thread for a mid-week Valentine’s Day

This week brings warm hearts and cold Olympic temperatures; and the brave souls who are part of each.

This weekend and the next will be filled with hearts and flowers for a lot of people because Valentine’s Day hits in the middle of the week. It’s apparent that whoever invented the holiday was single or it would have been like other occasions that get shifted around to come up on the weekend and I wouldn’t be trying to find  [Read More…]
