Okay, look, there are certain things I really never want to hear about ANYONE, let alone a senator. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, Larry Craig, a Republican senator from Idaho, was snapped up in a sting operation in the Minneapolis Airport attempting to stop gay men from hooking up… read more

My city of residence, Kirksville,MO, enacted a smoking ordinance on July 1st, 2007 that finally prompted me to write an entry I have pondered for ages. Smoking bans are bad for your economy and a violation of people’s rights. Now, let’s be clear before I go much further, I am a REFORMED smoker. I quit… read more

So, that post about Even More HD-DVD Temptation? Seems quantities were limited. I thought about it all night, was going to order the HD-A20 today, and… deal was over for the Toshiba players. You could still get it on the Xbox 360 HD DVD Player, but I don’t want to go that route. So it… read more

Google Ads

Not that I think a lot of you go hunting around in my archives, but all posts older than 30 days now have Google Adsense ads in them and will continue from here forward.  I figure 30 days ad-free is more than fair, and this is all about the search engine traffic.  Since I just… read more


Here they come… I’ll be covering the announcement for, but I’m sure I’ll have commentary over here. I’m predicting full screen video with touchscreen, no clue on storage… I’m hoping huge.… read more

The HD-DVD/Blu-ray war just got a bit more interesting over the Amazon way. Right now, if you buy a Toshiba HD-A2, HD-A20 (pictured to the left), or an HD-XA2, not only do you get the free five mail-away movies they’ve been offering (which the choices are fairly lackluster, I will admit), Amazon will give you… read more

One of my all-time favorite sci-fi films is the 1951 classic, The Day The Earth Stood Still. For those of you unfamiliar with it, a UFO lands in Washington D.C. and an alien and his giant robot emerge from the saucer. As one would expect of the Cold War era, we don’t take too kindly… read more

I noticed something this morning when I started my computer at work that annoys the hell out of me: IM programs.When did it become so insane that I have to have four IM programs open at all times? I’m not even counting Skype in all this, though I always have it on, but I meant… read more

Armando Montelongo

A while back I was going through my Google Anayltics stats and noticed a lot of people surfing in here searching on information about Armando Montelongo. I had done an entry on him back in December of 2006, but it wasn’t what people were looking for. I saw they were being a bit more specific… read more

Today I was writing up an entry for and it struck close to home on one of my favorite subjects: Internet speeds. It will be difficult to talk about this without crossing over with my published piece, but at the same time, I have to be polite over there, here I don’t. ConnectKentucky is… read more

I talked about this in February, and it is still going on… Yes folks, I can STILL meet women from Russia who just want love! Isn’t Galina lovely?  Why, she almost makes me want to give money to “A Foreign Affair” to fly me to the Ukraine to meet her. These have been coming in… read more

I know by now I have to be boring some of you, but please indulge me. The following started off as a comment to Roy on this post, and I decided to expand upon it. As much as I love Japan, it is an anomaly when it comes to technology. I can remember on my… read more
