I just got a new laptop. Been looking for a while. Mostly I needed something I could take into town to get work down while visible on Main St or so. The one I got has up to 7 hour battery, which is perfect.
Happy Star Wars Day
Today is May 4th, hence "May the fourth be with you" aka "Star Wars Day." Now I wouldn't be a geek without bringing some attention to this, but I want to draw a clear distinction here. I have watched all the Star Wars movies, I enjoyed them, even the ones with Jar Jar Binks. I have memorized many lines, but I'm not super sold that it is the all to end all of SciFi. I have read a few dozen of the books, I'm an avid reader so I was bound to read several. Most are short enough I can knock out a couple a day even on my current schedule. Some of the books are great, some are terrible. I've also … [Read more...]
Today’s Post is Brought to You by the Letter M

It will be much more functional if the gallery ever has more than a few images.
A few days ago I posted about the plugins I’m using on the blog. Many blogs I’ve worked on have 20, 30, 40, or more plugins. This can cause big time slow downs and potential conflicts.

Following up to the site I found with a bunch of steam punk technology/art I found this site that sells steam punk electronics and jewelry. I was told I can’t buy it, but maybe someone else will have the coin for something this frigintastic.
