Swipes glasses cleaner

Tall, short, male, female, techworkers, salespeople, gamers, gunslingers. Gibberish readers are pretty different, except for one thing: most of you, myself included, are blind as bats. I normally wear glasses — even when I have my contacts in, I tend have sunglasses/eye protection on. Eye wear gets dusty. Eye wear gets dirty. Eye wear that […]

Miata

No, not the Mazda car of the same name, but the same feeling: miata is a Japanese expression of the union between horse and rider. I’m going to need a whole lotta miata when I make my trip up to central New York in less than two weeks. It’s a projected ten hours or more […]

Back! (Again)

The router update is complete at DreamHost, but Gibberish doesn’t appear noticeably faster than before. Hopefully that’s due to the rest of the network coming back online, but I’m not hopeful. So, again, do you feel that the site is faster? No tags for this post.

HORI Nintendo DS retractable stylus review

HORI Nintendo DS retractable stylus review

The Nintendo DS Lite is 39 percent smaller and 21 percent lighter than the original Nintendo DS Phat. While I’ve enjoyed the smaller form factor of the NDSL quite a bit over its predecessor, there is one small problem: the stylus used for the bottom touch screen is, well, too small.

Another planned Gibberish outage

In a continuing effort to fix Gibberish’s host, we’ll be down starting at 10PM PDT today. Cross your fingers! On the positive side: my current host, Dreamhost, is very communicative with what’s going on. Quite a refreshing change from having to ask for information and then be misled/told it’s not a big deal.

GIVI FZ351 top case rack installation instructions

After burning several hours, my previously-assumed inexhaustible supply of swear words, and the patience of Lady Jaye, I managed to put the GIVI hard luggage top case rack on my 2005 Yamaha FZ6. The original instructions were in Italian, and the English translations weren’t very descriptive. I did my best to take notes and pictures […]

Back!

Downtime lasted fifty minutes tonight. So far the site seems a little faster; we’ll see if that’s because only us vampires are awake, or if because the network has actually improved. What say ye: is Gibberish slower or faster than it was before the maintenance? No tags for this post.
