The slippery slope rebuttal can be pretty annoying depending on how dumb the person using the argument wants to be. For example, many people say all the surveillance cameras we have everywhere are a slippery slope towards totalitarian governments. While I think we still have a few tricks up our sleeves before we have to [...]

I first played Cities XL in May of 2011. I last played a year ago in April 2012. At the time I said I couldn’t wait until Sim City came out. However, we know what a fiasco that has become. So, discouraged about playing Sim City I decided to load up Cities XL. This is [...]

The thing I like the most about Twitter is the ability to interact with creatives in real time. In the past you had to write a letter to a writer, artist, musician, etc and hope that, maybe, they’d actually read it and that, maybe, they’d feel compelled to reply with something more than boilerplate. I [...]

Yesterday we took a look at the most interesting, now let’s look at the most viewed! Two photos of Nam that I took with my holga have really been taking off.

The last time I could quickly find where I did this was last January. While there are some photos that are similar, there’s been quick a shake-up on the Most Interesting Photos (as determined by flickr’s algorithms).

The Walking Dead (14 hours) – I played the latest episode of The Walking Dead. Because you can’t just save wherever you want, I ended up with 14 hours of playtime. I still haven’t finished episode 4.

Earlier this year I wrote about using xbmc to create your own private Netflix. I thought I’d update my readers on how I like it. Here’s what the current version looks like with the default skin: I have linked it up with trakt.tv to track my tv and movie watching (just like music scrobbling with [...]

Two years ago I reviewed Arch Linux. My conclusion at the time – great if you have to control every aspect of your system, but it’s not for me. I later used it on my Pogo Plug to set up a file and print server and it definitely has its merits. I know, generally speaking, [...]

Sorry I took so long to get to this. My last post had me finding out that the Reapers were actually the most ancient species I’ve heard about until now. And after my face off with Saren on Virmire, I thought I’d have to chase him to Ilos to finish the game. But, nope, [...]

So I’ve used KDE for about a work week. During that time I’ve pretty much gone to using the KDE versions of all my programs except Konqueror. I’m not sure if the Fedora 14 version of Konqueror is the one with Webkit, but last time I used Konqueror with KHTML it was mucking up a [...]

I love to write so when I started the 2010 NanoWrimo competition 9 days late I thought it would be no big deal to get caught up. I really under-estimated the effort behind writing over two thousand words a day. I think I probably could have made it if I had an idea ahead of [...]

Here’s my latest Photojojo time capsule with my most “interesting” photos from late October to early November 2009.

While listening to a recent podcast of This American Life (TAL) it made me realize the troubles that the disabled have to go through in this country. I don’t mean the way others treat them differently, although that certainly is an issue, but rather the little things we take for granted. The sad thing is [...]
