How Does She Know?

How Does She Know?

It never fails. When I say never, I mean never. Rosie will be in a different room, maybe even upstairs. Sometimes she is asleep, other times playing. I’ll walk, sneak, or belly-crawl over to Porter. I wait. My hand stretches out slowly and I start to pet Porter. He might roll over on his belly […]

Medic!

Medic!

Gibberish’s host was down for the majority of the evening due to two failed switches, a bad network card, and a fiesty mail server that saturated the lowly fail-over’s bandwidth. Things seem back to normal now, albeit at a pretty slow pace. No tags for this post.

Nelson Rigg Defender 2000 Motorcycle Cover Review

Nelson Rigg Defender 2000 Motorcycle Cover Review

We don’t have a garage at our house. I keep Cylon, my 2005 Yamaha FZ6, covered at all times to protect him from the rain and dust. There are some overhanging oak trees near our driveway, and a cover keeps him safe from tree sap as well. When I got Cylon last fall, I bought […]

Back Home

Back Home

I had a a great mostly-work visit out in San Francisco last week. I caught up with friends and co-workers, played some games, and sat in a lot of meetings and brainstorming sessions. I received some good feedback with other people within the company; I remarked to Lady Jaye that it had been a long […]

Howard Leight Max Earplug Review

Howard Leight Max Earplug Review

As previously asserted in my SilentEar earplug review, I take motorcycling noise very seriously. I wear earplugs all the time now, even if it’s a five minute ride down the road to Starbucks. Hearing is my only remaining good sense, I need to protect it the best I can. Which is why I purchased 200 […]

Nightly Tester Tools for Firefox

Nightly Tester Tools for Firefox

I love Firefox’s extension/plugin scheme. I use free extensions like GDirections, Wikipedia Lookup Extention, and my beloved Googlebar. Unfortunately, upgrading Firefox might leave certain extensions technically out of date. Firefox disables all extensions by default unless they are explicitly compatible with the version of Firefox you are running. There is an automated way to check […]

Who Needs an Engine, Anyway?

Who Needs an Engine, Anyway?

I’m flying out to San Francisco today on business. Despite my (very DrFaulken-esque) mis-direction on the way to the airport, I arrived on time to the gate. We boarded a very modern and clean MD-88 jet, everyone took their seats, and we went through all of the pre-flight hooha that only I listen to. The […]
