So yeah….

My birthday is coming up on July 20th. Boy, my Amazon Wishlist sure is getting out of control in size. *whistles innocently*… read more


I stumbled on this picture over at engadget.com today. Yes boys and girls, this is a Commodore 64, this is what my very first computer looked like. It consisted of a keyboard only at first. The os (operating system), if you can really call it that, was hard wired into it. You would then plug… read more


As the episode begun this week, Gordon felt it was time to shake things up again, and so it’s back to waking the teams up with rattling pots and pans. They were ordered to the kitchen on the double, once there, they were instructed to go to the dining room for resturant operations lessons from… read more

According to this news story, Jennifer Wilbanks, aka the “Runaway Bride”, is selling her….”story”….to TV execs to be made into a made-for-TV movie. It appears a company named ReganMedia is devoloping the project, and according to the above linked story: “ReganMedia did not reveal the amount of the deal, but the Atlanta Journal-Constitution said it… read more


This is some of the biggest news to hit the internet in awhile. It seems Google may be trying to lauch their own online payment system to rival Ebay’s Pay Pal service. There have been a few to try this before (Western Union’s Bid Pay, Storm Pay and a few others come to mind), but… read more


I’ve talked about this before, but it’s worth bringing up again…why are online gamers, for the most part, jerks? It’s a game, it’s meant to be fun, it is not a life or death situation. The occurances of idiots on Halo 2 seems to be getting worse and worse, especially since the recent rank resets.… read more

Well, my laptop hard drive is dead, but to my surprise, it is still under warrenty! A new hard drive is on it’s way, but more than likely all the data is lost, and everything will need to be reinstalled. Such is life, I really don’t keep primary files on it, so the data being… read more


Well, after all the stressing of last week about if I should buy a new desktop or not, and after I just ordered said new desktop…it appears my laptop just died. The laptop is three years old, but still. Oh well, I will call the tech guy in the morning and spend yet another $90… read more


Highly amusing week on Hell’s Kitchen. The first event we were treated to was Jeff passing a kidney stone, and then showing it to everyone to prove he was not a liar. Lovely. Great television that. The first significant event of the episode though, was the moving of Michael from the blue team to the… read more

No big shock to me, but Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein had a book about William Mark Felt, Sr. (AKA Deep Throat) ready to go in case of his death, entitled “The Secret Man”. Instead of dying, he just told everyone who he was, but it should still be interesting read. Shameless commercial follows: I… read more


Let me say right off the bat, I am sorry that Natalee Holloway is missing. My heart goes out to her family and friends. The following comments are in NO way to be taken as I am upset with Natalee or her family. That being said….I want to kick the media in it’s collective hind… read more
