  • WoW, That’s A Lot Of Analysis

    Brad and AndyII almost, almost have me convinced to join them in World of Warcraft for a free hittrial, but thankfully, this in-depth analysis of job security in WoW was there to, you know, give me a great deal of pause at the thought.

  • Master Your Vocabulary

    …Or your vocabulary will become your master. Or summat like that, I dunno. Seems as though Aron was terribly, mysteriously ahead of the curve when he called out our current crop of politicians for their overuse of The Sphinx’s favorite rhetorical device. Slate has put a name to the tactic (it’s called antimetabole, apparently). And…

  • Ahh, The Memories…

    I used to be one of the Blob launchers (whose feet you can barely see in-frame to the right) during my tenure at good ol’ Camp Brookwoods, while fellow counselor Jay Dunning was the launchee. Never got that much height, though. I simply cannot wait to send my kids off to summer camp! Oh the…

  • Kudos For Praized

    Yes, I avoided the “praise for Praized” pun. My buddy Stephane (he of fellow WPhone fame) and his workmates have gone live with their social app, Praized. Think of it as a Web 2.0-ish Angie’s List, with local business/hotspot search and reviews (“Praize”/”Raze”, depending upon your level of Customer Support Mojo™). They’ve got Movable Type…

  • …To The Dump, To The Dump, To The Dump Dump DUMP!

    That’s right, folks, it’s time for another browser-clearing session ’round these parts, so strap in and enjoy. What’s worse than finding out that a former classmate was published in Linux Journal? Finding out that he works for Google and races BMWs on the weekends, of course. Hi, Laz! The world’s oldest profession? Not recession proof.…

  • Wii-less

    Curse and blast! Above is the screen that I am now resigned to staring at each day until my Wii returns from the Nintendo service depot. It started exhibiting “visual tearing” (little black shimmery spots) artifacts a few months ago, particularly in Zack & Wiki and Super Mario Galaxy, so much so that Z&W almost…

  • Wardrobe Suggestions

    Nobrainer, your custom-made t-shirt has arrived: I wonder if t-shirts can increase your fuel efficiency?

  • Whopping, Hearty Congratulations Are In Order

    My best buddy Brad and his wife just gave birth to their first child, Kate Emerson, yesterday evening. Momma and baby are doing well by all accounts. I have no firsthand accounts of Brad’s behavior, but I’m willing to bet he’s tickled pink. Drop by and leave him your compliments.

  • posting from natmech

    Matt, Owen and others are in attendance. Good times.

  • Words Fail

    AndyOne and his family are in shock after the death of his brother-in-law. Your thoughts and prayers for him, his wife and her family, and their kids are much appreciated, I’m sure.
