The Right Right Guard?

The Right Right Guard?

I have used Right Guard’s “Fresh” scent Sport gel deodorant for, well, I don’t know. Well over a dozen years, if not more. I like it because it goes on clear, stays clear, and smells nice. The product has gone through one major scent change in the time I’ve used it, and I didn’t mind. […]

The post in which DrFaulken screams like a tweener girl

The post in which DrFaulken screams like a tweener girl

Every once in awhile I get a wild hair and decide to tackle the many tasks that fill my “to do” list. Some of those tasks involved putting crap up in the attic, which I access through your typical zombie-escape-hatch-style ceiling door with a ladder screwed onto the other side. So, I grab my stock […]

How prepared are you for a quarantine?

How prepared are you for a quarantine?

The H1N1 pig flu got a lot of attention in the media and at the office water cooler. Whether you believe it’s a big deal or not, situations like this are helpful for reflecting on your level of preparedness. It’s like a zombie movie: the chances of facing an undead horde are small, but it […]

I’m several days behind on making updates on my trip to Georgia and back. I have a few things to discuss from a motorcycling perspective, some gear to review, and everything else … so instead of lagging even more on my posts, I want to show you some snapshots of my trip, and try to […]

I’m not dead …

I am not dead, but my main computer is. Sorry for not updating about getting home. I have a lot of updates and reviews to post, but it is tough when my main computer is busted 😉 If any of you have experience with Windows Vista and the “black screen of death” please let me […]

May 2009 Tybee road trip, part 1

May 2009 Tybee road trip, part 1

Quick trip report, so far 🙂 Leaving Richmond Saturday morning — it had rained earlier in the morning but my trip was dry. Stopped in North Carolina to shake my legs and drink some water and coffee. The weather heated up pretty quickly and the wind was brutal from North Carolina until I hit Savannah. […]

On the road again

On the road again

I’m headed to Savannah, Georgia to spend some time with some friends. Taking Cylon, my 2005 Yamaha FZ6. I ordered a set of Givi E360 hard cases as the last minute because I couldn’t trust the JC Whitney knock-offs as side cases. I managed to pack all of my things into the side and top […]

A decade of rememberance

A decade of rememberance

It is safe to say that I was a different person ten years ago. I was living in Virginia for the first time, in a small two bedroom apartment with my girlfriend from college. Even though I had already done professional Web work for two years, I had just started the job that would cement […]

Lift with your legs, not with your back

Lift with your legs, not with your back

Due to the increase of ammunition prices and a desire to start shooting more, I have started reloading my own cartridges again. There is one big difference between now and when I last reloaded about thirteen years ago — you can’t find ammunition components to save your life. Primers are especially hard to come by, […]
