  • Things We Can Live Without

    We have a tendency to over-exaggerate what will make us either happy or sad. That gadget, clothing, car, etc. probably will not turn the world into a Utopia. So I found this Profhacker post, “Things We Can Live Without” interesting. I don’t mean annoying things we could do without, like complaints about grades or being stuck in…

  • Give in to the Dark Side

    Salivating…  SW: The Force Unleashed. Its been well past time to get a Wii.

  • Cheesy Gift of the Year

    What is the cheesiest gift someone could possibly give you this year for Christmas? I’ve been reading quite a bit about what people want for Christmas. I’m curious about those gifts you would hate to get but others would think you would like. Guess I’ll start. People surely know I shop on ThinkGeek. They might…

  • Spy Camera

    A camera in a lighter? Don’t smoke, but I’ve gotta get one of these!?!

  • Xmas Wishlist

    I want a laptop. Just wish I could afford one… 🙁 While I am at it, I also want my own house… a kickin home entertainment system… several computer systems (a G4 Mac, a couple different Linux types, a Sun, an SGI, an AIX, plus the facilities to support them all)… and a maid to keep all my crap…

  • Used Software

    Lemme get this straight… one can go to Amazon and buy software used? I am sure there must be a disclaimer that the seller will have uninstalled it, but how can you be sure? It would suck to buy an online shooter, go to play and get denied because your key is already in use. By the way… I am glad…
