Video Tutorials: just because you can, doesn’t mean you should

I’m sorry, this is pretty much a rant. To all the sites that think video tutorials are a good thing: please rethink this. When people need a tutorial they need something they can follow along with step by step. Often times I want to come back and just read one part of it again. Or, […]

We finally got our xBox 360

I had been telling myself for the longest time, with the help of Andy, of course, that I could hold off on buying an xBox 360 until Halo 3 came out. But then there was Gears of War. Truly addictive, very fun, and bloodier than hell.

Just what is a half question?

I’ve been profiled. I have no idea how this business started or even what effect it will have on me in the long run but here it is over at Tom’s site. I still wanna know who called me old and creepy. Oh, and Tom, looks like the copy / paste missed some spaces and […]

NHL is shooting itself

So ESPN reports that it is not picking up its $60M option to retain some exclusive rights for next years hockey season. It has declined further comment but promises a clarification in the coming week. I don’t like it. No matter how you look at it, from the player’s side or the owner’s side, there’s […]

Any emails sent to that temporary address will be forwarded to an address that you specify when signing up. The address expires 24-hours after creation. This is […]

New Pope

Am I the only one who couldn’t care less? Probably not, but still, I sometimes feel like I am. I wrote and rewrote this post many times because each time I started to ramble and my disdain for the church comes out each time.

Get it while its hot!

The newest scoop on the Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe. I really can’t wait to see this especially since WETA is doing the costumes. In case you don’t know, WETA did the makeup and characters for the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I would be a nice guy and mirror this but the damn […]

Damn Dictionaries

In a ruling last year, the Florida Court of Appeals awarded 24.3 Billion dollars in damages and compensation to FOX News when it overturned a previous ruling that held FOX News […]
