Productivity

Someday, I just really feel like getting things done. Last night was one of those nights. Granted, we did huddle under blankets and watch the office for a while because it’s cold out and our apartment is cold, but I did manage to get a few items checked off my list. I had ordered a […]

NES HTPC?

Back in March, when the Windows 8 Consumer Preview was release, I tried and tried to get it to install on a spare partition of my hard drive. However, I couldn’t get it to work and I talked tried installing OpenELEC instead. While I haven’t played with OpenELEC in a while (I think I wiped […]

School has been blown to pieces

Exams are done. School is out. I am moved back to the parents house for the summer. Should be napping and relaxing and reading, but I may be more busy than while I was still at school. I suppose now I need to start thinking about my plans for the summer and trying to work […]

Swing of things

Now that the semester has slowed down a bit once again, I feel somewhat relaxed. Or maybe it is the fact that I spent as little time as possible on my feet this weekend in order to let them rest for once. Or maybe it is because I just took 10 shots of vodka (just […]
