Public Transportation Experiment!

OK, so the monthly public transportation experiment begins!The rising cost of fuel, tolls and parking is costing me $90-$100 per week to go into work. In contrast, public transportation would only cost me around $40 for unlimited travel. That is a sizeable chunk of change!In the past, I had used public transportation to come to school or work, but the overall cost at the time was more expensive than

Waste of Bandwidth!

I gotta say that I am a teeny bit upset at the waste of bandwidth that is taking over the internet these days. Here are some of my least favorite bandwidth wasting types of activities:You go to NBC, you click to see a small clip from Last Comic Standing, maybe 4 minutes in total length. Before you can see each mini clip, you HAVE to watch a 30 second add. Seriously?!You go to a news site, and two

The erosion of customer service: the water heater story

I love doing things online. I love to order my pizza online, and pay online. I like to send off emails to contacts rather than calling. Recently I discovered that I like online classes (at least up to now)…but there are some times that you want some face-to-face interaction with people providing a service! As was mentioned before, my water heater died. It wasn’t flooding the house or anything,

Video Game Friday: Alone in the Dark

Who remembers Alone in the Dark? No! No! Not that awful Uwe Bohl film! The DOS (and subsequent Mac Port) Alone in the Dark! I bought the game back in 1995 (or was it 1996?) I still have the CD-ROM somewhere with my antique software holdings. I remember playing the game on my Performa 635CD on lazy summer afternoons. The video bellow shows how choppy the graphics were, but there was nothing scarier

Debating whether to get Patapon now

I’ve been hearing about Patapon on the 1Up Yours podcast for a while now, so I decided to do a YouTube search to see a bit of the gameplay. Every review I’ve seen gives the game thumbs up, and on Amazon it’s only $20. Seeing the video on YouTube made their silly little pata-pata-pata-pon song stick in a mental loop (I think I’ve been rick rolled).Here is some wiki information

This season’s orphaned shows

OK, so the television season has been over for a few weeks and we’ve now found out which shows have been orphaned, in other words cancelled. Here are four shows that I wish would get picked up by another television station:Jericho: Network: CBS. Post nuclear USA. If you haven’t seen it, you should! It’s a season and a half of great suspense. The end of the second season leaves us

Television Tuesday: Της Ελλάδος τα Παιδιά

OK for those who don’t read (or speak) Greek, the show is called “Greece’s Children”, it’s sort of slang for the young people that are military service. The show is about these slackers who serve in the Greek Air Force, their commander, the local snitch, and of course the General that comes in on surprise inspection visits.The show is of course a comedy staring Yannis

Need to do a site redesign

…but I don’t know exactly what to do!I need to do some RapidWeaver cleaning out. I’ve got some obsolete themes from the RapidWeaver 3.1 era that I downloaded a while back, and that have been orphaned by their creators. I like the themes, and I wanted to update them for rapidweaver 3.6 and 4.0 and redistribute them (for free of course), but I simply have not had the time.I think my

Does it run RapidWeaver?

Over the past few weeks I’ve been debating the purchase of a new laptop. No, my PowerBook G4 is still chugging along, but there is something to be said about doing your homework and research on your sofa, wirelessly, rather than being tethered to an Ethernet cable near your router.I’ve been looking at the Eee PC, and the ubuntu subnotebooks because my N800 experiences this far have been
