Too Streamlined


I belated Happy International Women’s Day. Also, I have a problem. I’m starting to make my internet life too easy. I’ve reduced the majority of my internet activity to RSS feeds and I’ve imported all of them into Google Reader.   While this certainly makes my life easier and saves me a boatload of time […]

Operating Woes


I was really excited the other day because I was downloading the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. If you’re unaware, I’m a nerd. I was excited until I started installing it. I’ve tried four times now and I can’t get it to work. When I was installing from inside Windows 7, it would hang at 72% […]

Interviews and employment

Computers, Peace Corps

My apologies, I just realized that I didn’t update the comic last night. I was in the homework mode until I went to bed. I will try to get one up tonight. To answer the question, “How did your interview go?” It went, okay. However, I find it hard to judge because I think I […]

March 10, 2010


I have a few updates and thoughts in case anyone cares. Motorcycle Update: Geoff will be driving me to take a look at the new KZ650 this Sunday. Assuming the bike is in decent running shape, I plan to buy. The man who I am buying from has been quite kind in the process so […]
