Memorial Day

A big thank you to all of you that served and especially the ones that didn’t come back. I have a special place in my heart reserved for the men that fought and died for us and who did not feel they had a choice.A month or so ago, my friend David came to town …

Networking made easy

I continue to love FIOS. It is stable, and fast. Not all is well internet-wise though. Here’s the layout of the system currently; the main router/wireless interface is downstairs. There are two computers connected to it directly via ethernet. There are three of us sharing the 802.11G wireless. I’m upstairs using the wireless. Normally, things …

My summary of current political thought WRT the public.

Conservatives   “If everyone would stop being so stupid and be more like us, everything would be much better. As it is, we better use the government to dictate the way things should be.”   Modern day American Liberals   “People at large are stupid, greedy, and sometimes even evil. The government is the only …

Lady Gaga

“I have a confession to make. I like Lady Gaga.” That’s what my friend _____ told me today. I had been hearing a bit about her from here and there and had made some Bowie parallels from the critical comments. I wanted to see if she really was the next Bowie and had watched a …

Anachronisms

Verizon sucks

I’ve never been so frustrated in a company. Usually, bad companies have bad products and bad support. FIOS seems to be the odd combo of a great product and lousy service. I’ve had them for 4 or 5 months now and I’m about done with talking to them. Here’s a letter I sent them, I’m …

Radio reborn!

App Gallery – Welcome to mysqueezebox.com!: “” I had heard about the Squeezebox from Logitec for years, but I never paid any attention. My loss… Listening to the radio was always fun in the past. Part of it was the thrill of the hunt, cycling through different stations in order to find something that fit …

Sun worshipper

MS is an odd thing. No one knows what causes it, and everyone is affected differently. There is quite a bit of evidence that it isn’t an “it” at all. It could just be a description of a whole host of different things that result in some similar symptoms. Just like in years past people …
