All About This Date

Every application has a story behind it…

The other day I wondered how old my grandfather was when my son was born.  I got to number crunching and found the answer.  Then I started thinking about the relativity of a date.   What day of the week was my son born on?  That sent me on a mission.  About 15 hours later, All About This Date Beta 1 was born.

Every application has a story behind it…

As an aside, my family is geographically separated.  On a recent visit to my parents’ house while my brother was in town — and after a few beers — our stepdad’s bullwhip came out.  I have to add, this is not the first occurrence of this phenomenon.  After a brief “refresher course” from the master, my brother and I took turns trying to produce the coveted crack…at times with a great deal of pain.  We both decided that we must finally master this skill.  That means we needed bullwhips.

I was Hacked

Just a word to those who have not yet heard, this site has been hacked. I am correcting the issue. Please be patient with me and know that I would never attempt to hijack, infect, or otherwise exploit my readers. Once the issue has been corrected, I will post more.

Thank you for visiting thekruser.com. I hope you return.

UPDATE: I am still working this issue, but the virus appears to be gone. There will continue to be glitches for a while.  My sincerest apologies for any inconvenience. I am thoroughly scanning each and every file before posting, so it may take a while to get everything back up and running in its entirety. Thank you for your continued patience.

Tether: What an Awesome App

I recently was hooked up with a copy of Tether for BlackBerry by a buddy of mine. I will refrain from listing his name here so he doesn’t get inundated by people begging for a hook up. To my friend…thank you! I had no idea what I was missing!

Here’s the deal. I had heard about Tether many times before. I actually looked into purchasing it more than once, but I just couldn’t justify the price. Especially since I have a non-3G phone. There is little in life as painful as loading a full web page over a 2G connection. If you ever do have the chance to load a full web page over a 2G connection, jump off a f-ing cliff.
