Moving Out

When I first started a personal blog, I had no idea what to do with it. I thought I would post a few recipes, write about my weekend at the beach, and that would be about it.

Instead, this blog became a tremendous learning experience for me. I started podcasting (thanks to Wil Wheaton and …

Yahoo, this is why you suck…

yahoo01

…and why the rest of you should avoid using Yahoo.

For some time, I’ve been debating whether I want to host my own image gallery or not, mainly because I can’t afford to spend more money on memory for my VPS, especially where there are plenty of free online photo sharing platforms.

Since Flickr is …

Today is Tuesday, August 12, 2014

I’m a busy person, which is one of the reasons I don’t watch a lot of television. Production values are at an all-time high, because technology has increased in quality at the same rate it has decreased in price (thank you, NASA), but from a content standpoint, most of it is utterly worthless. I don’t …

Make Your Own Laundry Detergent

wpid-20140801_1427531.jpg

I had been researching for over a year how to make your own laundry detergent, I just haven’t the time or the energy to do it. While there are several recipes available online, I condensed them all into what I believe is the simplest one. So, as part of the “get excited and make stuff” …

Pickled Jalapeños

Martia: "We don't get many presidential assassins around here."

One thing I’ve noticed is that pickled jalapeños from the grocery store are inconsistent. Some are hot, some aren’t, and none of them are fresh. I like to make my own. It’s easier than you think.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, …

Kind of thought my beard trimmer looked like Cthulhu

Peeked out of the shower and saw this. The comb looked a bit more tentacly in the steam and without glasses.

Maybe this is more like it?

So I made this…

no-sixers

I was so inspired by Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One, that I made this icon to use as my Facebook avatar:

Feel free to download it and use it yourself, or to alter it to suit your tastes:

Because I was excited and careless, it’s in a non-standard size (432 x 432 pixels). You …

Silent Noise Project #006

Hey there! It’s good to see you again, too.

Welcome to episode #6 of the Silent Noise Project. This episode is 54 minutes and 27 seconds long and weighs in at a very petite 49.8 megabytes, although, as always, your mileage may vary.

That’s a pretty cool …

Project Wideawake #008, part 2

Welcome to the second part of episode #8 of Project Wideawake.

Why two parts? It’s a long story, but the tl;dr version is this: it’s been three years since I’ve done a podcast, so I decided for this first one to recap some of my favorite songs …

Lent is almost over…

I don’t celebrate Lent every year; my feeling about spiritual practices is that you practice things you need to work on and let the rest go. So there have been years that I really couldn’t figure out what to give up until three or four days into Lent; there have also been years when I …

this is going to be a thing…

I’m pretty excited right now, because I’m not that far away from the launch of a project that I’ve been working on almost nonstop for the past several weeks. It’s involved the writing of several thousand lines of code, more than a few sleepless nights (thank you, coffee), and flurries of emails and text messages. …
