"The Keyboard Story"

Posted on November 17, 2008 at 2:00pm 5 Comments

Alright, so a lot of people have been asking me to post this, so I guess I have to. Not a problem, though, I need to break in my new keyboard :P



So on Saturday night, I decide my keyboard is dirty. Understandable, as everyone knows, as keyboards are huge magnets of dust, dirt, and everything else that you can think of (and then some that you can't) that can fit through those little cracks between the keys.



Get the supplies ready: hot water, isopropyl alcohol, cotton swabs,… Continue

Is Ventrilo Really Secure?

Posted on November 2, 2008 at 5:19pm 1 Comment

Many of you are familiar with Ventrilo, which is a program that lets you talk to other people over the Internet. I myself run a public Geeks Ventrilo server, but that's besides the point.



It was brought to my attention today that there are some major vulnerabilities that, if put into the wrong hands, can almost destroy a Ventrilo server.



I'm not going to go into complete depth, but anyone with moderator status, which allows people to kick, ban, and add/delete users, can… Continue

Do you really get all the sleep you need?

Posted on September 23, 2008 at 8:29pm 5 Comments

As many of you know, I am a sophomore in high school. Being a sophomore, I'm not able to drive yet, and am forced to take the bus to school every day.



I have a friend who also takes the bus. We generally sit in the seats next to each other. However, almost each and every day, she falls asleep on the bus. Mornings and afternoons.

Hey Calvin!

I read your comment on the Mac Mini Fan Club group about having a Mini that you'd be interested in selling, do you still have it and still interested in selling?

My wife is looking for a Mini and I'd rather buy one from a Geeks Member than anywhere else!

What's the specs and stuff?

Send me a message here - I'm on or near Geeks most of the time!

Thanks
Frank

Hi Calvin. After I left your wish, it struck me as really funny considering your name.

You are welcome my dear. I hope you have a killer day.
