How I Fixed a Disk Read Error in Windows 7

How I Fixed a Disk Read Error in Windows 7

I’m writing this post mostly for when it happens again (when you’re dealing with these kinds of weird Windows errors, they’re bound to happen again). However, if it helps someone out, more the better. About three days ago I purchased a Seagate 1TB SSD / platter hybrid hard drive. I bought it to speed up […]

Farewell to StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty

Farewell to StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty

In May of 2010 I started playing the StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty beta. I kept playing right up until launch day July 7, 2010. Since then, I’ve finished the single player campaign and played thousands of games of StarCraft 2. StarCraft 2 was more to me than a game, it was a way to […]

The Best and Worst Gibberish Gadgets of 2012

The Best and Worst Gibberish Gadgets of 2012

This year I wrote 55 reviews on Gibberish. That’s about average, some years I’ve written in the high 60s and some years in the low 40s. I hit a few dry spells throughout the year as I moved, or bought less stuff due to budgetary concerns. I also spent a lot of time (and money) […]

Making Yogurt in the STX Dehydra Food Dehydrator

Making Yogurt in the STX Dehydra Food Dehydrator

We’ve owned our STX Dehydra 600 food dehydrator for just over two months now. My model came with a plastic window that could be used for taller objects, like glass mason canning jars. I had read about people making yogurt in their dehydrators, and I was interested to see what it would be like compared […]

Help Me Out and Get a Free Shaving Oil Sample

The test period is over, thanks to everyone who participated! I wrote about the benefits of shaving oil last October. I really like using shaving oil. It helps my skin stay more supple and moisturized during the shaving process. This helps me avoid nicks and cuts during my shave, and helps keep my skin soft […]

Movember Prostate Cancer Awareness Contest

Movember Prostate Cancer Awareness Contest

At this stage of my life, everyone I know has either directly lost someone to cancer, or knows someone who has. Everyone. Every. Last. One of us. Every November there is a large event to raise awareness (and research money) for prostate cancer. Called “Movember,” participants are encouraged to not shave for a month. For […]

Gibberish Asks: Illustrator Robert Dickson

About a month ago I announced an upcoming interview with illustrator Robert Dickson. My interview with Robert is the first in a new series called “Gibberish Asks,” and I hope to do more of them in the future. Robert likes to draw animal mash-ups, and we thought it would be fun to run a contest […]

The Kind of Astroturfing Requests I Get

The Kind of Astroturfing Requests I Get

“Grass roots” is an over-used term that means enthusiasm, support, or ideas come from common folks, from the “ground up.” The phrase gained popularity in an age where most felt that big business, big government, or big brother were dominating the mindscape of the populace. Over time, anything grass roots was trusted more than official […]

Public Service Announcement: Get Primal EP from Glitch Mob Member Ooah

Public Service Announcement: Get Primal EP from Glitch Mob Member Ooah

Josh “Ooah” Mayer of amazing musical group Glitch Mob has released a four track EP entitled Get Primal. This short and sweet four track EP is very close to Glitch Mob, but not quite as cinematic. I think Ooah (and LoBounce, the EP’s collaborator) sounds more like Glitch Mob meets Knife Party, in itself a […]

Thermos Saves the Day – TWICE.

Thermos Saves the Day – TWICE.

Insulated container manufacturer Thermos scored two big victories to me yesterday. My friend BigDubb recently bought — like last Friday — a Sipp insulated travel mug from Thermos. On the first day of use, the button used to open and shut the lid broke, and BigDubb was unable to drink his beverage. It also kept […]
