Officially-licensed Battlestar Galactica game headed for PC and Xbox 360 Arcade

Officially-licensed Battlestar Galactica game headed for PC and Xbox 360 Arcade

Almost a year and a half ago I wrote about an underground Battlestar Galactica PC game based off of the Freespace 2 engine. A demo for Beyond the Red Line was released, but work is still spotty on the ambitious independent project. In the meantime, Sierra Online has announced that an official BSG game for […]

Happy (belated) birthday, Cylon!

Happy (belated) birthday, Cylon!

Two years and two weeks ago an almost completely novice and very nervous DrFaulken brought home Cylon, my brand-new 2005 Yamaha FZ6. I survived a guy stepping out in front of me and highway traffic my first day and have never looked back. I’ve said this to a few of you in person, but motorcycling […]

DeSantis Nemesis Pocket Holster review

DeSantis Nemesis Pocket Holster review

The DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster may seem expensive, but functions flawlessly with my Kel-Tec PF-9 small frame semi-automatic pistol. A great concealment holster for conceal carry handguns.

Gibberish WordPress maintenance and a few site changes

Gibberish WordPress maintenance and a few site changes

I did some work on Gibberish today. It was a mix of maintenance and some feature/usability tweaks. I got rid of the archives in the left sidebar — no one was really using it according to my user logs, and it took up a lot of real estate. I would have used Stilt’s pulldown menu […]

Trippintees.com takes its sweet ass time.

Trippintees.com takes its sweet ass time.

I guess I am spoiled by Woot, NewEgg, Threadless, Amazon, and even little startup Tanga. I guess I am spoiled by people at home selling shit over eBay. I guess my expectations for fast order fulfillment are much too high for online t-shirt vendor Trippintees.com. I put an order in on September 17th. I received […]

Sleeping position personality quiz

Sleeping position personality quiz

Stomper sent me a nice video about what sleeping positions say about us, and I’ve wanted to mention it on Gibberish. I wanted to have another personality quiz to go with it, and I found this quiz courtesy of Evany.com: the secret language of sleep. No tags for this post.

Vaseline Intensive Care Total Moisture Lotion review

Vaseline Intensive Care Total Moisture Lotion review

So, I ran out of hand lotion last week. This may not seem like a big deal to you. However, when you have poor circulation to the extremities like I do, work on computers all day with your hands outstretched and elbows bent, and putz around behind the counter of a coffee shop in your […]

She likes to moove it, moove it

She likes to moove it, moove it

My friend Fishsprout completed the Palo Alto Running of the Bulls race last weekend. You can read more about it here, but the premise is so charming that even I may have been coerced into running. Two and a half minutes after the contestants start, people dressed up in bull and cow costumes are “released” […]

I will.

I will.

Last week I finally got off my ass and did something I’ve meant to for years and never got around to. No, it doesn’t involve twins. I went to see a lawyer and made a living will, along with an advanced medical directive. I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, and I don’t use drugs. I’m […]

Bissel Little Green Portable Deep Cleaner review

Bissel Little Green Portable Deep Cleaner review

Sometimes I’ll buy something and will have to wait for the right time to review it. The Bissel Little Green Portable Deep Cleaner is a good example. I started thinking about buying a portable steam cleaner after I got Pearl. She had the shits off and on for her first month here, and after watching […]
