Just when I thought the Gatti family tree was up to date Debbie’s branch of the tree has sprouted yet another new leaf. OK, maybe I’m taking the tree metaphor a bit far! Please welcome Micah John Bowling to the family. He was born August 24th to Wendy and Michael Bowling.For those keeping score, that makes 6 members of Generation H of the Gatti tree, all of whom are grandchildren of Debbie and great-grandchildren of Sonny and Dot.

Half of Scott and Casey is back

Category: Randomness — Posted by Michael at 1903

In the past I’ve mentioned Scott & Casey, the great radio show that used to be on NJ 101.5. They were replaced with Carton and Rossi, a really terrible show. I never liked Craig Carton when he was on WIP an liked him less when he came to NJ 101.5.  So, I was excited when I saw the news this morning that he had been chosen to replace Don Imus on WFAN in NYC. I figured odds are pretty good that his replacement would be someone better.

Well, imagine my excitement when I looked at 101.5’s website and saw that his replacement is none other than the guy who he replaced a few years ago, Casey Bartholomew! Casey obviously is the Casey of Scott and Casey. It remains to be seen how good the show will be with Ray Rossi still there, but I’ve never heard Rossi without Carton so it’s possible he’ll be good with Casey and without Carton’s obnoxious antics.

Where’s Scott, you may ask? I’m still hoping he winds up with Casey, but he’s currently posting content on scotthasick.com.

There’s also more discussion at scottandcasey.net.

No Apple Key?

Category: Technology — Posted by Michael at 2252

Back when I first starting using computers in third grade it was on an Apple IIc. There were two keys on each side of the space bar. One was the open apple key and one was the closed apple key. The closed apple key long ago went the way of 5.25 inch floppy drives and monochrome monitors. The open apple key has however, lived on for a few more decades on the command key.

Then on Tuesday Steve Jobs unveiled the newest Apple keyboards. The little cloverleaf symbol is still on the command key, but the open apple was replaced with the word “command.” It’s the end of an era. It’s kind of sad.

Derik DeLong of MacUser thinks otherwise.
