Top 100 songs the year I graduated high school

Top 100 songs the year I graduated high school

Courtesy of badmagic’s meme post, I went to MusicOutfitters.com and typed in the year I graduated from high school. The directions of the game are to bold the songs you like, strikethrough the ones you hate, and underline your favorite. Here goes! 1. I Will Always Love You, Whitney Houston 2. Whoomp! (There It Is), […]

External hard drive enclosure review

External hard drive enclosure review

About six months ago, a brand new 250GB Samsung hard failed on me. I sent it back to Samsung, and bought another 250GB drive from newegg.com, thinking that I would use these two disks as a start to an eventual RAID 5 project. Samsung quickly sent me back my replacement drive. I think it was […]

Cyberhome CH-DVD300 Review

Cyberhome CH-DVD300 Review

I needed a second DVD player for the bedroom TV. Not wanting to repeat the same mistake I made with my more expensive Toshiba DVD player (it doesn’t play DVD-R discs, for one), I scoured BestBuy and Circuit City for a cheap ass DVD player that still had the features I wanted. I was looking […]

Netflix: 17-month Review

Netflix: 17-month Review

I joined Netflix last April mostly to see what the squawk was all about, but also to start building up my video collection and play around with DVD archiving. Plus I had missed out on a bunch of movies in the theater when I lived in Oregon; mostly because I didn’t want to go alone. […]

Settlers of Catan 10th Anniversary edition available for preorder

Settlers of Catan 10th Anniversary edition available for preorder

I found the 10th anniversary edition of Settlers of Catan on funagaingames.com after directing Panda to buy the regular edition there. The game has an estimated MSRP of FOUR HUNDRED DOLLAH but does appear to have nifty contents. The 3D terrain seems neat, even though the screen shots on FunAgain aren’t super clear. I’d like […]

What to do with old cell phones?

What to do with old cell phones?

So while excavating my closet the other day I found a Motorola phone I had when I was with AT&T Wireless. It’s a TDMA phone, which is a network that’s no longer in use, since AT&T has merged with Cingular and they’re on a GMA network system. Anyway, the phone is in great shape and […]

OK fuck it, we’re done watching Battlestar Galactica

OK fuck it, we’re done watching Battlestar Galactica

After grinding through eleven episodes of season 1, Lady Jaye and I just can’t take Battlestar Galactica any more. The miniseries was fucking k-rad, I watched it awhile ago while Lady Jaye was at work; we watched it again together about a week ago. I loved it, and so did she. So thanks to the […]

R2D2, Where Are You?

R2D2, Where Are You?

I love Google Maps. When you have a horrible sense of direction like I do, written directions and maps save the day. I almost want to bear Google Maps’ children. Almost. There are a few things that I don’t like about it. For one thing, you can’t save your preferences. I almost never use the […]
