Review: Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson 1

Review: Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson

A while back Jon recommended that I read Diamond Age, which is unusual as I’m usually the one doing the recommending. This review will be spoiler free, so if you haven’t read the book feel free to read on without worry. This last weekend, I finished Diamond Age while I was in the Vegas area. Jon had warned me ahead of time that the ending was poor, though not on...

Tethering my AT&T Tilt to the Eee PC 3

Tethering my AT&T Tilt to the Eee PC

Car Geekery As John was behind the wheel this past Saturday, I had many hours to burn; thus, I decided to try my hand at getting tethering working.

All mockery aside, I’ve lost the last of the remaining respect I had for the Sci-Fi channel, which truth be told, wasn’t much (wrestling…). I loved the Sci-Fi channel in general because I love Sci-Fi...

Today In: F*** My Life

I discovered a new and most humorous website. It is called “F*** My Life“. Personally I’d go with “Fuck My Life”, but apparently they didn’t want to be offensive… either that or they knew the word “Fuck” in a domain name would get them blocked on most reasonable firewalls. Hell, the country of Essex gets blocked because it is all up in the sex (Yay for poor use of regular...
