Adventures in Tech Support

I got a Sony BDP-S350 for graduation, and I must say Blu-ray movies on a high-def TV are quite lovely. I got Firefly and Pushing Dasies along with it. They are also quite lovely. The problem comes when I bought some movies off Amazon. Well, they all worked except one: Starship Troopers. I know may […]

December 12 Is Coming Fast

December 12 = Graduation Day. In order to help answer questions about what I would want for graduation, I have created an Amazon Wish List. I was also very bored. So, If you think you want to get me something, why not check it out? http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/R9EGKNENWDLN

Thwarted by Dreamhost

Thanks to Hak5’s bulletin board (telnet bbs.hak5.org), I have been reintroduced to the wild world of MUD’s. At the same time, a friend of mine spends lots of time bored with only a terminal to keep him company. Together we hatched a plan, to host a MUD on my account here, on Dreamhost. However, I […]

Something that would be awesome

Recently, I’ve been getting into Revision3 shows. It started when a friend showed me an episode of Tekzilla. I hadn’t realized how much I had missed Patrick Norton. He seems a little haggard now.

I love ‘quotation’ marks

I did my civic duty and gave back to one of the blogs I like a lot. For those who don’t know of The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks, it is simply a collection of the misuse of quotation marks. It is also hilarious. Click the link and check it out. Now that you’re familiar […]

Hard At Work On My Page Theme

I have decided to flex my PHP muscle and write a bitchin’ page theme that allows you to subscribe to RSS Feeds and view them from a Word Press blog. À La this page on my site. It’s still in development, but I think it will turn out rather nicely. In other news, I’ve been […]

Making Plots Is Hard

So, I thought it would be a really good time if I were to make a chart which plotted my love of FireNES versus time. On top of that, I thought it would be a good time to use the Google Visualization API. My only stipulation was that I wanted to use strings for the […]

FireNES = Love

I will not be first, and won’t be the last, to say how awesome FireNES is. FireNES allows you to play almost any NES game you can think of through Firefox. This rocks harder than anything that has rocked before. The site: www.firenes.com.ar/ The Pros: If you can think of a game, FireNES has it. […]
