Print Anywhere From Android Tablets Using the Cloud Print App and Google Cloud Print

As I use my tablet and smartphone more and my desktop and laptop computers less, I’ve started doing things I thought I’d never do with a touch device. For example, our Honda Fit broke down a day after the dealer “serviced” it. They demanded proof of insurance before they would tow the car back to […]

How to Replace the Keyboard on a Lenovo G450 laptop

Sometimes things happen. The can of compressed air got mixed up with the can for liquid carpet cleaner, and like that the keyboard on our Lenovo G450 laptop went kaput. Pressing a single key would result in multiple characters showing up on the screen. I tried prying the key caps up and cleaning the area […]

Rest In Peace, Sean “Vile Rat” Smith

I played the massively multiplayer online role-playing game EVE Online back in 2006. On the surface, the game is about flying spaceships around and banding together in “corporations” to mine virtual minerals used to make virtual space stations, factories, and bigger spaceships. EVE was part math, part tactics, and all community. You could do very […]

How I Keep Track of My Shaves

One of the cool things about shaving with a double edge safety razor is realizing how personal it is. The razor, the blade, the pre-shave preparation, the shaving products one uses, the technique and the post-shave treatment — everything is custom to you. What works for you won’t necessarily work for someone else. It’s great, […]

My Experience With the Nasal Mist Flu Vaccine

Last Friday I had the opportunity to get this season’s flu vaccine. It was covered by my health insurance and a medical service was offering it at my office building. I sat down next to the nurse after filling out my paperwork and waiting in line. I preemptively took off my button-down shirt and rolled […]

Actresses I’d Like to See in the Lady Expendables

I really liked the action movie homage The Expendables. I haven’t seen the sequel yet, but I’m looking forward to it, as well as the untitled and upcoming Expendables film starring an all-female cast. Hell. Yeah. Between my mom and a buttnest of women in action films (Linda Hamilton in the Terminator, Grace Jones in […]

Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard for Android Devices Review

I am a huge fan of the 7″ tablet form factor. Small enough to fit in a back pants pocket, thigh cargo pocket, or a coat hand pocket, smaller tablets like the Nook, Fire, Nexus 7, or Tab are accessible in just about any situation. If you carry a bag or a purse you can […]

How I Disassemble a Glock Pistol

More people in my peer group are buying Glock semiautomatic pistols. Some because it’s an election year. Some because they are becoming more fight-focused in their mindsets and firearms training. I started with a Glock 27 when I turned 21, then I spent some time carrying an Officer’s Model 1911, then an XD-45, then a […]

Gibberish Gets a Facelift

I started this blog in 2005 on LiveJournal. I wanted more control over the format and functionality, so I moved to WordPress in June of 2006. Ever since I’ve used basically the same look and feel — a custom WordPress theme I named Joshua after the son of my online pseudonym. The Joshua theme was […]
