November is purple, Pancreatic Cancer Awareness

  • November 12th, 2007

Educate and promote awareness Last month 5ThirtyOne went pink to support Pink for October raising awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A co-workers partner raised the question challenging me as to why I had turned the site pink to promote Breast Cancer Awareness when I had not shown similar support for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, […]

Change and something to look foward to

  • June 13th, 2007

Aside from a few Tweets, I admit that all things 531 related have diminished down to a dull whisper. Cause for concern? Not at all. Tides have turned, and I’ve made a few decisions which have left little time for much else. The dry spell for content and activity on 5thirtyone.com can simply be described […]

The Seattle Gum Wall – giant wall(s) of gum

  • April 26th, 2007

Video screenshot – Syl & I visit the Seattle Gum Wall at Pike Place Market – View the video (QuickTime required) For those of you who have never visited Seattle, here’s a little piece of Seattle character which defines this fine city. Having lived in Seattle for over 20 years, I am ashamed to have […]

MyMint interview, I should stop eating out

  • April 9th, 2007

Have you ever caught yourself questioning a purchase at the cash register – the energy drink, the triple shot, a new piece of hardware, or a new article of clothing? I know I have. Unfortunately, the disciplined side of me – the side which decides whether or not I should make a purchase – was […]

April Fools’ Day, I’m 24, who’s playing pranks?

  • April 1st, 2007

UPDATE: I spoiled Syl’s surprise… Ergh, her April Fools’ Day joke. It would have been amusing to see her drop such a question in front of the family – timing would have been everything and I definitely would have played along. After looking at the celebratory "cakes", I’m sure the immediate reaction is to think […]

Weekend updates throughout

  • March 11th, 2007

After much deliberation, I decided to take a few minutes out of the weekend to clean-up shop here on 5thirtyone.com. I have always known that my WordPress database was a little on the high side considering how few posts I had thrown up over the past year or so. I decided it was time to […]

Sylviaaaaa has a new site to play with – sylvialoh.com

  • February 18th, 2007

Taking a moment out of this years Chinese New Year, I’d like to announce a quick project created over the weekend – sylvialoh.com. For longer than I can remember, I urged Syl to leave behind her Xanga roots pressing her to see the light of WordPress. Fortunately, I have finally managed to get her blogging […]

Derek Punsalan…is experiencing progress

  • January 14th, 2007

Progress is finally being made on is.derekpunsalan.com. Let’s throw some bets down for expected update intervals – work permitting. There is a worthwhile story behind my decision to setup a second domain. We’ll save that discussion for a lengthier post.

Welcoming 2007, a look back at 2006

  • January 1st, 2007

Seeing as though today is the last 1st day of the 2006 year, I felt it would only be fitting to look back at everything that I’ve experienced, accomplish, and or discovered over the past year while carrying the domain 5thirtyone.com. I can safely say that the move to a self-hosted blog and the decision […]

Want to get on my pathetic [Christmas] tree?

  • November 30th, 2006

With the wild success of the Million Dollar Homepage, and the ensuing massive flow of imitators, I’m surprised that the upcoming holiday hasn’t presented the net with Christmas tree sponsorship opportunities. The idea inspired by a Flickr note left by Paul on the above image of Charlie Brown pathetic tree. The tree is very much […]
