As you can see, we’re doing some remodeling around here.  We’re not quite done yet, so stay tuned!

When in doubt, Repair Disk Permissions

When in doubt, Repair Disk Permissions

A few months ago, I discovered Urban Terror, a free (as in beer) FPS game based on the Quake3 Engine.  I’m not much of a gamer, so free is right in my price range. But seriously, I’m not a gamer: I play for about 15-20 […]

Facebook removes “little used” privacy feature

Facebook recently rolled out another change which removed a key privacy setting from users.The setting was called “who can look up your Timeline by name”.  Basically, if you were like me (one of the few people using this feature apparently), you had this set to […]

To Fedora or not to Fedora, that is the question…

Hello Blog! It’s been a while. Bet you thought I forgot my password. Wrong! *evil-grin* I’ve had a Samsung N150 Netbook since Summer of 2010. For a while, maybe the entire time, I’ve run Ubuntu on it. I’ve never loved Ubuntu, I initially loaded it […]

AT&T Doesn’t Want More Customers

AT&T Doesn’t Want More Customers

I was going to depart from my usual snarky Tech Tuesday blog and talk about something that I like (whenever I figure out something that I actually like), but after today’s experience with AT&T, I decided to put off the non-snark until next week… Recently, […]

Do Not Track

Do Not Track

Last week, I heard an article on NPR (which I can’t seem to find at the moment!) about different Web Browsers adding the “Do Not Track” feature.  Microsoft has added it to the next version of Internet Explorer, Mozilla to Firefox, and recently Apple to […]

Writing a WordPress Plugin

When Kim and I first started out blog, we poured over many WordPress Themes, trying to find the right one that suited our needs and that we liked the looks of.  One of the things that Kim really wanted was a “Photostream” of recent pictures, […]
