For the love of Starbucks, who cares about the red cups?
November 11, 2015
It’s red and green, that’s Christmas-y Apparently the thing to do these days is rage on the internet against Starbucks. If you’re important enough, you can rage in person about boycotting Starbucks. Why all the rage? Because a cup is red instead of decorated with Christmas-y stuff. This is so ridiculously #firstworldproblems it hurts to even think about. So I have a suggestion for the seething masses… shut up and enjoy your coffee.
Hard to buy books via Brick & Mortar
August 31, 2010
This weekend I randomly wandered my way into the local Borders to burn some time. While I was there I found three books that caught my eye: The Official Ubuntu Server Book, LPI Linux Certification in a Nutshell and the Chobits Omnibus (Book 1). Even though I love myself some Amazon, I am still all for supporting the local brick and mortar businesses. If I need a book post haste, or if it is only a couple bucks more in store, I will buy it offline. That being said, I try to a savvy shopper. So I took the price tags on the books and then compared that to the Amazon.com price. Sadly, I left the store empty handed.
