Happy birthday, Pearl!!

Happy birthday, Pearl!!

Happy birthday to my youngest dog Pearl, who is turning five years old today. I don’t know what is more mind-bending: remembering Pearl as a puppy, or realizing all of the things that have changed in my live since she came into it. Tags: birthday, pearl

Zevro WM300 Indispensable SmartSpace Wall Mount Triple Dry-Food Dispenser Review

We were envious of the wall-mounted cereal dispenser featured on Big Bang Theory. We found it, and the Zevro WM300 is a fun way to save space in your kitchen.

Support a United States Theatrical Release for Iron Sky

I’ve been following the movie Iron Sky for awhile. It’s right up my alley: space Nazis return to earth and it’s on like Donkey Kong. Iron Sky had a limited theatrical release in Europe earlier this month. While there are plans to show the film in the United States, there are no firm release dates. […]

Another Weekend With Diablo 3

Another Weekend With Diablo 3

I was allowed into the closed beta for the Diablo 3 video game back in February. I played a few rounds through the game back then. While everything seemed well executed, I didn’t have very much fun. Blizzard Entertainment recently opened Diablo III to everyone last weekend. Their objective was to stress-test their servers ahead […]

How to Tell Someone You Can See Their Gun

There’s a coffee shop within short walking distance from my new job. I go there about four or five times a week with my co-workers, and it’s a nice joint in a nicer part of downtown. Now, Minneapolis is to the rest of Minnesota as Northern Virginia is to the rest of Virginia, for my […]

Koko FreshPocket Insulated Man’s Lunchbox Review

I’m a big believer in eating small amounts of food frequently throughout the day. These “eating events” help keep my blood sugar level even and my metabolism going. In the last six months or so I’ve tried to eat more fruits and vegetables. Unlike the South Beach / Snackwell’s protein bars or almonds I normally […]

Holmes 7 HAWF2021-U Twin Window Fan Review

I review the Holmes 7 HAWF2021-U dual window fan. It is quiet enough to run while we sleep, and does exactly what it needs to do.

Great customer service and a beautiful bracelet from TurtleDoveGems

Sedagive? had a birthday recently, and I took to Etsy to find some unique handcrafted items. I was looking for bracelets this year, and I knew that Sedagive? and I shared a love for Dia de los Muertos art. She also likes turquoise, and if I could combine the two I’d be in good shape. […]

Always have a backup: my review of online storage service CrashPlan

Always have a backup: my review of online storage service CrashPlan

Late last month my home file server suffered a catastrophic meltdown, in which the power supply died. The power supply destroyed two hard drives, including my operating system drive, and damaged a third drive so badly I couldn’t read any data from it. The electrical problem caused the rest of the system to behave erratically, […]

How to clean your Krups GVX coffee grinder

How to clean your Krups GVX coffee grinder

My review of the Krups GVX grinder is one of my more popular Gibberish articles about coffee, and it’s the top ranked video review on YouTube. The coffee grinder is an inexpensive flat burr grinder and can be found at Costco for about $30 before tax. However, the grinder has some design issues that may […]
