Well, here it is: 2007 A.D. (or C.E., for you godless heathens). Along with it comes the first Gnorb.NET post of the year. At first I thought about making this a long eulogy to 2006 and its lessons. Instead, this is a short little post welcoming the new year. It’s also the worst post of… Read more The First and Worst Post of 2007
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Oh the shame to come. Thatâ€™s right folks, it happened again. Somehow I was dragged out to the place I least enjoy yet find myself visiting the most. The mall. Now I know that there are a lot of events going on in… Read more There and Back Again
Twice have I gone to the theater to see the new film The Pursuit of Happyness and twice have I failed to get tickets. Itâ€™s the strangest phenomenon.

This year it seems like the mood was not as festive as in previous years. Maybe it was because The Wife’s brother,… Read more Christmas Card Games
No witty intros, the headline says it all: Gnorb.NET is now a proud member of the 9Rules Network. This is probably the most exciting event in Gnorb.NET history, so while I’m sure this non-challant paragraph doesn’t show it, I’m exceedingly excited about having been chosen.
I confess: I’m a bit of a workaholic. Anyone who knows me knows I’m constantly working on something. Usually it’s either writing or redesigning my blog. Or learning about business. Or reading (for education). Or cleaning (shock!). Or… you get the drift. That’s why the fact that I’ll be on vacation from Christmas Eve to… Read more A Needed Vacation
The headline is pretty self-explanatory. Read the rest for all the details.
In today’s edition of Gnorbmusik, Gil Shaham plays the Carmen Fantasy by Pablo de Sarasate. As an experienced violinist, I can honestly tell you that no, this piece is by no means easy.
