Unusual Fish Caught At Buffalo Springs Lake
A fisherman makes a very unusual catch at Buffalo Springs Lake.
Late Tuesday afternoon, a fisherman hooked a fish he says he`s never seen before and lake officials are just as amazed: a 20-pound fish with what looks like human teeth.

Scott Curry has caught thousands of fish at Buffalo Springs Lake. He knew his catch was something special from the time he hooked it.

"It took a long time to (reel)in," he says. "I didn`t want to lose it. I was afraid line would break on it."

After reeling in the 20-pounder, Curry realized it wasn`t a typical catch. This one had teeth.

"I haven`t seen anything like it," he says.

You gotta set the table if you wanna eat...

Had a nice dinner with Martin this evening. I made Gnocci, with a nice sauce and we watched some decent boxing.

If your into real sports, make it a point to watch Wednesday Night Fights on ESPN2. That said, watch all the boxing you can -- it's good for your soul.

Speaking of Soul, did you know that the infamous/famous James Brown, The Godfather of Soul, was a boxer at one point? True. Just look it up in his autobiography, "James Brown The Godfather of Soul" -- it's a really good read, and a true rags-to-riches story.

Speaking of good books, I plan on reading Teddy Atlas' biography "Atlas: From the Streets to the Ring: A Son's Struggle to Become a Man" at some point soon. You should too...

Life in "the square-circle" is a lot about setting the table. It's about 25% preparation, 25% skill, 25% smarts, 25% effort, and 75% heart -- and in the end it all adds up. ;-)

Firefox 2.0 Beta 1

I recently installed Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 [relevant links: Firefox 2 Beta 1 Milestone,, Firefoxflicks] on this laptop and my initial thoughts were, "ok, so now what?" because the improvements seem to be nicely tucked away as either behind-the-scenes improvements like the "anti-phishing" stuff, or very tough to spot when surfing at web-speed like the tab improvements, or the live bookmarks.
Get FirefoxI think it's worth the download and a try, but hold-off if you need your extensions or like your themes and stuff like that. Here's a MacWorld article that delves into some of these things in more detail... First Look: Firefox 2 beta.

Fun With Freeware: MacOSaiX v2.0

Ah yes, this is better than good -- took a few minutes to mess with MacOSaiX and it it really awesome! You can grab it at

You can select a photo, pick a few keywords and then grab your mosaic tiles from a bunch of different image sources like google images, or flickr, or use glyphs (i haven't tried that yet though).

Here's the MacOSaiX (from my photo) I made this afternoon.

Time to make the donuts...

Ok, so things have been up and down for the last few weeks (actually my first few weeks at Convoq), but now, I'm really pleased to note that things seem to be heading in the right direction.

You know when you're in the midst of a development cycle and things just don't seem to be "coming together" as they should? Well, that's how it was for a while, but today things have begun to really "gel" in terms of the schedule, the product, and the UI -- so much so that I'm pleasantly surprised -- and actually I'm feeling really good about how the new functionality works in the product and the way in which it looks and feels to the user.

I hope to put some screens here, or maybe a link or two so you can see for yourself.
