Top O’ The Morning To Ya

In honor of St. Paddy’s Day, the greatest drinking holiday of the year, I’d like to discuss inhibitions for a bit. I’m sure most, if not all of us, have either heard or used the phrase “alcohol lowers your inhibitions.” This phrase is common to the point of cliche, but like most cliches, euphemisms, and […]

Hello, I’m A Traffic-Whore. Nice To Meet You.

I’m a fairly cynical person, and for the most part I rely on the internet to supply me with the logic and reason that is sadly absent from real life. And no, I’m not being sarcastic. The thing about the internet is that while it’s filled with wackos and perverts, a discerning surfer knows how […]

F.U.B.A.R.

Several months ago, I bought what I thought was a twelve GB jump drive from Monstor. It looked like a Zippo lighter, and let me repeat, it held twelve GB of data. Total nerdgasam. Here’s where the problem occurs: In reality it wasn’t a flash drive but an actual hard drive, complete with moving internal […]

You’re Not Thinking Fourth Dimensionally

If nothing else convinces you that “time” is a man-made, artificial construction meant to keep people from twiddling their thumbs and staring up at the sun, it should be today. Today is February 29th, which, according to our Gregorian calender, is a Leap Day. What’s a Leap Day? Well, our 24-hour day, 365-day a year […]

Programmers Will Rule The World

But since most of them are poor they can be bought. Which is bad for the rest of the world. The bad thing is that the judiciary committee doesn’t really understand the importance of terms like “source-code” or “decompile.” These are important terms in this conversation.

Nerds In The Wild

You should really never leave nerds unattended in public. Odds are good we’ll go crazy from the lack of supervision and try to pull off some huge comedic stunt. But because we’re nerds our sense of humor tends to be a little different, and usually we just end up looking like huge asses. Hence, the […]

A Community Of Ones And Zeros

I’m an internet nerd. I’ll admit that straight off. I use GTalk for internet chatting. I’m active on all kinds of message boards. I play MMORGs. I have a Flickr account.I have a YouTube account. I have a Twitter account. I subscribe to RSS feeds. I use Gmail more than I use the telephone. All […]

We’re Doomed

According to this article, Larry Page, Google co-founder, announced at the Annual American Association for the Advancement of Science conference that Google is actively pursuing AI (artificial intelligence for all you non-nerds). Not only are they developing AI, but according to Larry they’re trying to develop AI on “a large scale.” Short version: We’re screwed. […]

Downloading As Disobedience

I’ve blogged about downloading movies before, but I just read this article, which claims that over 25 million people have illegally downloaded a full-length movie, and I was moved once again to discuss the subject. The study quoted in that article also claims that “a downloader typically has 16 full-length movies on his PC.” I […]

How To Download Torrent Files

How-to use torrent sites. Right. Okay, first off, I’m not telling you this so you can download the newest Shakira CD. In fact, if you listen to Shakira I’m going to have to ask you to leave immediately. Seriously, go somewhere else. No, I’m telling you how to use torrent sites because 1) There are […]
