‘Cause Work Sucks!

May 26th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Work Sucks is all kinds of awesome. Finally I found a type-in domain name that is actually what the domain name promises. Like they say, if you are a “go-getter” you’d have to go and browse somewhere. Work sucks is for slackers. They’ve got office videos, though I sort of wish they’d just cull the [...]

May 25th, 2007 · No Comments

The world’s first fully touchscreen Phone is not the iPhone (which I wrote about earlier). It is LG’s Prada phone.

Ooh, doesn’t it look sexy? The phone is limited to tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900 with EDGE data, and so will not be too popular in the US from the get-go. It’s smaller than [...]

The above video, recorded live at Penn State, is by comedian/musician Rob Paravonian, who has been a favorite on the Dr. Demento Show. He shares his frustration at having Pachelbel’s Canon in D major follow him everywhere. Everywhere.
Everyone including U2, Greenday and other pop music icons recycle the same chords and progression – don’t believe [...]

Delicious Pecan Pie

May 25th, 2007 · No Comments

I made some pecan pie yesterday – it turned out okay. Alright, I have to admit that the first time I got it totally wrong, and had burned cinders to prove it. This time it turned out fine. I don’t remember where I got the recipe from the last time, but this time I got [...]

I Found My Grey’s Anatomy Scrub

May 24th, 2007 · No Comments

So I watch Grey’s Anatomy – who doesn’t eh?
I thought it would be a nice surprise to buy my girl friend one of the scrubs that the doctors and trainees use as their uniform on the show. A lot of searching later, I found my nursing uniforms store online. They have two scrubs [...]

Free Stuff, Lots of Free Stuff

May 23rd, 2007 · No Comments

The sad part is that most of it is free samples. I can’t see what the catch is, since it looks like you have to apply for most of the free offers.

The website does have a lot of discount vouchers which seem to be absolutely free. I will be watching the site to see how [...]

LCD TVs Better Than Plasma TVs?

May 20th, 2007 · 1 Comment

I had written earlier about Plasma TVs, and thought maybe the decision was easy to make in favor of Plasma TVs, but now I am in doubt again. I read a whole bunch of LCD TV reviews today and they do seem to have their own advantages vis-a-vis Plasma TVs.
Here’s a few advantages LCD TVs [...]

Remote Computer Help With Easy Setup: Copilot and CrossLoop

May 20th, 2007 · 3 Comments

Here’s an amazing example of how the same thing, or almost the same thing can come in various shades of free. I have been looking high and low for software that helps me help family members without their having to jump through firewalls, setup VNC and play with port forwarding setting on the router.
