Pensacola Beach, Florida

It’s been over two years now and Pensacola Beach is still under recovery from it’s battle with the hurricane season. It seems an impossible task for the victims of Katrina to repair so readily from their disaster. Now that the Gulf on this side has undergone a great amount of…Continue Reading

I Wish I Bought Electric

Gas is out of control. I’m waiting for siphoners and car-jackers to rise into the norm. I told my wife to be wary of how she leaves her car in order that she not create an easy target. She locked my car doors for me last night at the house.…Continue Reading

I have attempted to take some brilliant pictures, but they’re probably all blurry – we’ll see when I’m able to get the camera and its cable together. After the showers, the sky began showing little pockets…Continue Reading

MadLib Biographies

My friend, Jason D., sent me a chain-letter to fill out and send to a million people for good luck or something. I am against such things, but I like Jason and wish to at least better his luck. Instead of emailing everyone with my MadLib biography, I chose to…Continue Reading

IE 7 in Your Future

Happy days! IE 7 has been divorced from the Longhorn time frame, which is seemingly an eternity. Microsoft was hoping to sit on it until then, but the challenge Firefox brings to the table has forced their hand. The certainty of an XP SP3 has been confirmed as well. Whether…Continue Reading

Dell Blade Server Preview

With both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios (film-like and TV-like, respectively), variable frame rates (again, to more closely emulate film or TV), interchangeable lens…Continue Reading
