Completed MG Gundam Exia

Gundam RX-78-2? Meet Gundam Exia. That was a tough model to assemble. I started this model August 23rd and I just couldn’t really make the time to put it together. When I assembled the MG Char’s Zaku 2.0 I had less trouble. The MG Exia is finicky and it’s flexibility is what makes it tough […]

Google Voice on my iPhone

I like playing with technology and I received an invite to Google Voice. I use an iPhone 3G so the integration is limited to a HTML5 web page running in Safari. The integration is not bad at all and the web page on my iPhone is very functional.

Arizona, where fear lives and becomes law

I’ve never been to Arizona and thanks to their new law, odds are I will never go. Yesterday Governor Jan Brewer signed into law a federal immigration bill to make it illegal for immigrants to not carry their papers.

Nikon 50mm f/1.4G samples

I’ve been playing with my new 50mm. If you liked the f/1.8D version, then you’ll have no complaints with this f/1.4.G new model. It’s a fun lens and as long as you can move around, you’ll get good shots. Here’s some samples I took today. We ate at the Jade Asian Restaurant. There are probably […]

What is not happening is that the page is not loading up the next steps of re-activating the […]

Yes, but how does Matt really feel?

It reads a little like a rant, but you really can’t blame him. I’m not even going to link any of the articles because they have so many inaccuracies you become stupider by reading them. If you’re a web host and you turn a bad file permissions story into a WordPress story, you’re doing something […]

New Nike ad

Like most people (hopefully), I really don’t care about a golfer’s infidelities.  I do feel sorry for his wife, just as I felt sorry for Hillary Clinton. But the stupid, selfish, narcissistic, self-destructive behavior of people in their private life is none of my business. I tune in to watch them perform in their sport. […]

Team Fortress 2 was never this cool

I saw this on Twitter this morning. This is an amazing editing job. You can see the non-split screen version here.

Wow. With some work the iPad did get into the blender. You knew this was going to happen to an iPad.

Playing with WordPress 3.0, Beta 1

As I usually do, I switched this blog from WordPress 2.9.2 to the current 3.0 beta. I always run the beta versions and I have not yet gotten myself into a hole. It also helps that I have very good backups for the last 30 days. I re-ran my overnight backup job one more time […]
