What Idiots Still Fall for These Scams?
With spam reaching almost 90% of all Internet traffic, I am proud to say that I get maybe one message of spam every two months. Seriously. My Microsoft inbox is clean, so is my GMail account. But every now and then I have to check my "junk" folder for false positives, especially...

I Love The Passion, But Seriously, What An Idiot
This has got to be the most absurd comment about Windows or Linux I've ever read. Clearly the commenter holds Microsoft in high regard. I just wish he wasn't so completely retarded misinformed. "You are kidding arent you ? Are you saying that this linux can run on a computer without...

The reality is I don't get into the Christmas spirit until the week before. Maybe...

Powershell and OneNote - Are You Geek Enough?
I'll admit, when I saw OneNote and Powershell in the same headline, I was like WTF mate . I started computing with command-line back with MSDOS, but somewhere between Windows XP and World of Warcraft, I just stopped caring about these outmoded nunchuck skillz. Thankfully, Microsoft...

MiniBar: London's Premiere Web 2.0 Geek Night
Browsing Upcoming.org for some interesting social events, I came across fun little event called Minibar, ironic I know. Minibar is essentially an evening "geek" night thrown at local bar/lounge where influential people from the community, start-up business, investors, and enthusiasts...

Two Nerds Arguing About Windows 7
Did you ever wonder what it would sound like if two nerds were arguing about Windows XP vs. Vista vs. Windows 7? Neither did I, but by some satanic curse, I clicked on this ridiculous article on InfoWorld which is driving me crazy. It’s like watching a boxing match play by play except with...
