  • Blog Post: 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...

      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...

    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...

    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...
