  • Tired eyes? Read this now.

    Spotted last week while we were in Seattle. I did not actually see this sign but a friend of mine saw the guy and unfortunately didn't have any money to give him. "Dad killed by Ninjas, need money for Karate lessons." If anyone has a photo, please post...
  • This Week, July 2, 2007 - role change to Network TSP

    Crickets, crickets... Not much going on this week! Of course there is a lot of buzz-buzz from people who finally have the iPhone in their hands. I actually saw one at St. Louis Bread Company yesterday. Smaller than I expected but it was pressed against...

  • Xbox warranty

    One item I neglected to include in This Week this morning - Any Xbox 360 customer who experiences a general hardware failure indicated by three flashing red lights will now be covered by a three year warranty from date of purchase. So, all the more reason...

  • This Week, July 16th, 2007 - Home Server RTM, Malware Encyclopedia

  • First experience with EVDO modem

    This afternoon purchased an EVDO modem so I could work out any bugs and have it in action before heading out to TR5. I have been researching these devices for months now and thinking about whether it would be a worthwhile investment. My upcoming trip...
