v6.2.3 - moving along, a point increase at a time

Would you like a Latte with your Occupy?

Free Lodging?Perhaps voting Republican on Super Tuesday has rubbed off on me giving me a "get off my lawn" attitude, or perhaps it's the ineffectiveness of Occupy UMass Boston that's just getting to me.  Don't get me wrong, I support affordable education for everyone, especially at State Schools like UMass Boston, and I support affordable textbooks and an equal opportunity for everyone - but it

Assassin's Creed Revelations | done

This past weekend I finished Assassin's Creed Revalations (with 69% synchronization), and as was expected, it ended in a cliffhanger... #facepalm. I know that the series is episodic, and I really didn't expect to see Desmond really do something much in today's world...and yes the game revealed a lot about Altaïr and Ezio, and the Assassins...and Desmond's past; but I am left wanting more of this

Cost of video games

  Last week seemed to be the week of the PS Vita as it was discussed on pretty much every single podcast I listen to (and some I don't listen to!) The main thing that the tech people discussed was not the capability of the device (because it seems to be quite capable) but rather the relevancy of the device. In a world were iPhones, iPads and Android devices (and now Microsoft with Windows Phone

Welcome to iOS5

  Well, since MobileMe is inching closer and closer to its inevitable death, I decided today to update my iPhone 3GS to iOS5, and move my data to iCloud. I attempted at jailbreaking my iPhone, but since it was jailbroken the update process eluded me in the short time frame that I had to update, so I decided to just go with stock iOS. My iPad hasn't been jailbroken, and iOS5 is not bad on it,

No Heroics

I had almost forgotten about this series, until I saw Timebomb on Being HumanThe series is called No Heroics, a sit-com following people who have some sort of super human ability, and they all want to be the next big super hero...but it isn't quite happening for them.  This really needed a second series :-)

Deep Space Nine - great even the second time around

This past week I finished watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine on Netflix.  I had originally watched some of the series when it was originally on television, but I had missed the first couple of seasons by virtue of being out of the country (and watching them in summer re-runs made little sense).  In any case, since netflix had the entire series on streaming I decided to watch it from

Adieu Amplify!

Another one bites the dust, eh?  Bellow is an email I got from amplify the other day announcing closure of their service.  I have to say that this is something that doesn't really affect me.  I noticed that a number of people that I follow on my professional (outward facing) twitter account had amplify accounts so I decided to give it a try.  Used it for a couple of stories

Restore fail?

Last Friday I got my new iMac at work (yay!) and I was busy transferring stuff from my old iMac that I have to give back to my old department soon. Due to this setup I didn't spend much time looking into what came withy iMac, in other words what came in the box.When I looked more closely yesterday I saw that the recovery disc was missing, or rather a recovery disk was not included. A quick web search

(my) Mac Mini is EOL'd...

With the announcement of Mac OS X Mountain Lion (10.8 for those keeping score) there is another list coming out of supported machines.  Even though I haven't updated my Mac Mini (mid-2007) to Lion yet, I was wondering if it would run Mountain Lion.  It seems like my mid-2007 Mac Mini will no longer supported by this new OS, but that is quite OK in my book.  Even two operating systems
