Out Front on HIV

04.30.2005 · Posted in In the news

I’m glad to see that the Strib is still covering the story involving Rep Emmer and his bill to eliminate state funding for MAP. This story in particular really highlights all of the efforts MAP has made over the last 22 years. Bravo, Strib & Warren Wolfe! Story reprinted below because articles on the Strib ...

The Friendster Phenomenon

04.30.2005 · Posted in Technology

I love friendster. I haven’t always felt this way. The service struggled with slow servers, timeouts, and errors for a couple of years. Now they seem to have finally gotten their act together and put together a quality product. It’s getting better all the time. My rommmate only has a computer setup so he can ...

I tend to use the word “Republican” too often in my posts. I say this because Google is always serving up ads targetted at Republicans. Case in point is this ad that appeared today. Apparently ‘college republicans’ are so worthless they’re auctioning them off to the highest bidder! Somebody quick – call Dubya and tell ...

Republicans targetting M.A.P.

04.24.2005 · Posted in In the news

M.A.P. is a state-level nonprofit organization that’s been active in the community since 1983. Their website at www.mnaidsproject.org states their mission as: Our mission is to lead Minnesota’s fight to stop HIV and enhance the well-being of those affected. Pretty admirable if you ask me. I know some of the folks involved over there and ...

Valentine’s Day Eve, part four

04.23.2005 · Posted in Recovery

Continued from Valentine’s Day Eve, part trois. I settled into my room with a book I had brought – Anne Rice’s The Witching Hour. My room being directly outside of the common area made it easy to hear what was going on with the rest of the gang, who had mostly settled there. I was ...

Sharing sex toys

I think the business model behind Netflix is pure genius, which is probably why it caught on so quickly, and eventually forced Blockbuster to follow suit. … but now this company is also following in Netflix’s steps! You subscribe to their service for $20 / month. Then you order away … Here are some of ...

Mixed feelings

I just got back from The Firm, where I haven’t been on a regular basis for the last couple of weeks. … err, I mean months … or, I mean half-years Okay, so I’ve been a couple of times since last Thanksgiving, but not many. I feel great, in that post-workout sorta way. But at ...
