While I wouldn’t say that I really followed his acting career (I think I’ve only seen two of his movies…The Patriot and The Order), it jars me a little when something like this happens (regardless of who the person is).

Interview on the WordPress Publisher Blog

While possibly not the most exciting topic in the world (unless you really care about blogging and blog design or are just a WordPress geek), check out my interview about WordPress plugins on the newly launched WordPress Publisher Blog.

NFL Network, Big Ten Network and Comcast

I’m a little irritated with the nonsense that’s going on between Comcast Cable and the NFL Network and the Big Ten Network. And so are a lot of people. All three need to sit down and talk this out instead of sending e-mails pointing the finger at each other as to who is to blame…all three of you and your greed are to blame.
