From The “You’ve Gotta Be Kiddin’ Me” Dept.
I just ran across this and I had to share it. The Army National Guard has joined forces with iTunes and they are offering three free mp3 downloads if you sign up with the Guard. I hope with all my heart someone intended that page to be a joke of some sort. Hell, iTunes only […]
With all the Hurricane stuff lately I haven’t felt much like posting anything silly. Now that things are semi-normal I need to clean out my bookmarks. Enjoy: Nerdy Stuff: 10 Tech Items Inspired By Science-Fiction 20 Tech Things They Don’t Want You To Know About. If nothing else it tells you how to kill Windows […]

This Post Has Nothing To Do With Tom DeLay, But Everything To Do With Writing
I was going to write a post about Christopher Hitchens (I just read his most recent article on Slate), but something else occurred to me so Hitch will have to wait. This blog represents one type of writing I do on a regular basis, but I also write papers for school, and I’ve been working […]
