Oh cool, my account was listed

Jane Wells wrote a nice thank you to the WordPress support volunteers. I’m listed among the “Generally active volunteers“. Coool.  Intimidating that Whooami has been involved in (a little arithmetic here…) 10,417 threads!

My next video game will be…

A few of my friends are suggesting I get MW2 since I am wrapping up my second play through of Borderlands. Borderlands is a wacky video game that I like even more that Far Cry 2 (the fact that Far Cry 2 crashes ALL THE TIME may have something to do with it). I liked […]

These people need to get arrested

Honestly, some people do need to be made into an object lesson. The couple’s lawyer, Paul W. Gardner of Baltimore, asserts that the Salahis had been “cleared, by the White House,” to be at the event, and so were not really “crashing.” Mr. Gardner declined a request to elaborate on his assertion. But a Secret […]

Some HD YouTube is worth it

This has been making the rounds but worth repeating here. Seeing this in HD is amazing. It gets really fun around 2:53.

Borderland 2nd Pass through

I completed the game Borderlands and I’ve started the second pass through the game.  It’s the same as the first time but all of your opponents are juiced up to your level or above. It’s hard for a game publisher to keep the game going. It’s still great fun but I can see this getting […]

Get your red hot WordPress 2.8.6

WordPress 2.8.6 is out and it’s a security release so update now. I’m expecting the usual complaints on the support forum but so far it’s been pretty sedate. I’ve been using WordPress since version 1.5.2 and I’ve never had a bad upgrade. Of course, I have a good idea what I’m doing and have never […]

DPReview’s Canon 7D review

I purchased my Nikon D300s for a simple reason: I was sold on the D300 and I’m a stickler for getting the current model. I’ve been very satisfied with it. Now Canon has come out with the 7D which lines up directly against the D300s. DPReview has a really good in-depth write-up of the Canon […]
