For the last 7 days I’ve been wearing my Christmas gift from my brother and sister-in-law: an LG G Watch. It’s a watch that runs Android Wear and works hand in hand with my smartphone. As a watch It’s very comfortable. The strap is rubber like and the holes take into account small […]
Like many people in my age group *cough* 40+ *COUGH!!* I rely on social websites such as Facebook and Twitter. Facebook lets me maintain a way to keep in touch with friends that I’ve not seen in years and Twitter permits me to follow the daily minutia of some really […]

I don’t think Microsoft will make the slightest difference to Google, but Bing is not bad. The video search results are cool.
I host the domain dembowski.net and also handle the mail delivery. The mail ultimately ends up in Stefan’s house via his DSL line. That DSL line has been prone to problems so I played with the idea of moving the mail to another server or VPS. But handling spam and […]
