Love in the Time of Toilet Paper

So…my local library challenged us to take the title of a book and replace one word with “toilet paper.” As it turns out, this is a lot of fun. Here’s the list I came up with. Can you remember which word was replaced? Love in the Time of Toilet Paper by Gabriel García Márquez Their …read more…

Silent Noise Project #009 — the chicken sushi episode

  Hello again. Welcome to episode #9 of the Silent Noise Project. This episode is 41 minutes and 10 seconds long and weighs in at 41.9 megabytes. As always, your mileage may, and probably will vary, because the internet is not a perfect place. Just like the world in general. The People’s Revolutionary Podcast Naming Committee …read more…

A Guide to Binging Star Trek: The Next Generation Season One

For a long time, I’ve wanted to write an episode-by-episode guide to every Star Trek series out there, with the exception of Discovery, because I haven’t seen that one yet. (And at this point, I don’t plan to, although that could change.) Then I read Max Temkin’s article on how to watch Star Trek: Deep Space Nine …read more…

Let Me Introduce You to the Internet, 2018 Version

Just got some things I’m going to leave right here. Enjoy your Saturday!  

…migrants of servers in the silicon crack of history…

Bat migrating

The server migration is complete…almost. Last night, I transferred CNAME records from my old host to my new host, WebFaction. While I was on my WebFaction control panel, I also recreated the email addresses that I would need. (There were some I had created that I never used, so I was able to pare the …read more…

Your results: You are An Expendable Character (Redshirt) An Expendable Character (Redshirt) 90% Spock 84% Geordi LaForge 75% Jean-Luc Picard 65% Data 64% James …read more…

New Personal Home Page

For the past ten years or so, I’ve always used my own index.htm file as the homepage for all my browsers, adding to it the links I visit the most. Over the years I added and deleted links, and occasionally tweaked the css, but for the past few years, it’s been pretty static. I recently …read more…

Darth and the boys at Disney…

Darth, you just destroyed the Rebel Alliance. Where are you going next? Disneyland!

…it’s a part of my rock and roll fantasy…

It just will never get cooler than this. I wish I could remember where I found this image. Bonus: two of these people are Canucks. Can you guess which ones?

For some reason, I needed to hear Devo’s “Whip It”, so I headed over to YouTube and found this:

“Whip It!” by Devo

How Not to Get Help From a Help Forum

This post is a parody of my “How to Get Help from a Help Forum” post. Since some people find themselves offended by it, I thought I would create a special set of rules and guidelines just for them. If you don’t understand what parody is, please don’t read this post. You’ll just get your …read more…
