Rants

Congratulations Microsoft!

It’s been a bit, why not kick things off again with a rant! Official Post. I was wondering what had happened last night, as Bing is my default search on my Dell Inspiron 10v netbook.  In the middle of working on something, non-critical, the usual ‘hey, let me look that part up!’ occurred, to which […]

Death

Holey rusted metal Batman!  Can we get some death with a side of death to go?  Apparently!  From John Hughes to tr.im, the past week has been slightly emo. The one URL trimmer I liked using with twidroid is dead and the dude who made movies for everyone to relate to are both gone.  I […]

Google Chrome OS?

Both posts are from a single source, but here they are to bring you up to speed if you don’t know what it all is. http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/168036/google_set_to_take_on_microsoft_with_desktop_os.html 5 hours later… http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/168058/five_reasons_google_chrome_os_will_fail.html Really? Nope. Nope. Possibly. Nope.  And, Nope.  Just as David Coursey is allowed an opinion, here goes an attempt at mine. 1. Netbooks will be […]

OMG! EVE Online!

Well, it has been some time since I have blogged anything and also since I’ve played me some EVE Online.  Most make the joke of, “Oh! That Excel game with a GUI!”  It is pretty bad, but I do not know if it is that bad.  They’ve expanded much since the days of just needing […]

Zune and Peripherals

Alright. I know, peripherals is a big word.  Thank you Websters. I’d given up on my crusade against being able to play songs on my device while it is plugged into my machine.  I store my music there for a reason, so I can listen to it.  I don’t want to sync it to the […]

Is Digg Sexist?

http://digg.com/people/Is_Digg_Sexist http://womensrights.change.org/blog/view/is_digg_sexist Edit: http://www.fastcompany.com/blog/saabira-chaudhuri/itinerant-mind/sexist-stupid-and-downright-offensive-digg-community-responds- What the fuck?  Really? Well, I guess I’ll break it down a bit here. As a minority on the internet, not just in collaborative efforts, women are going to find a relatively geek dominated area and the things that are discussed follow suit until everything begins to level out in gender.  There […]

Douchebags

I love that word.  Every person I know can immediately picture an unnamed person and shake their head to the statement, ‘Fucking Douchebags’.  It really is a great descriptive word.  I am surprised there isn’t a ‘Friends don’t let friends date Douchebags’ movement somewhere in the realm of the ladies.  It just amazes me as […]

Windows Live Messenger 9 Beta RC1

Wow, the only person who had that mouth full last I can think, was Monica Lewinski.  Bitch.  Seriously, say the blog title out loud.  Anyway, the new Writer seems a little more streamlined and once again I’m actually liking it.  Easier to preview a post, most settings and it all makes sense, mostly.  I know, […]

Ah, Windows Live Writer

Nothing like being able to post a blog from the remote comfort of my machine without the need to even open a web browser.  Though, WYSIWIG’s have come a long way, it is certainly no replacement for typing something up locally.  Windows Live Writer really isn’t something that is new, I still wanted to take […]
