Just for fun: The Microsoft Nexus 8!

Windows 7 - The sleeping giant is half awake!

Posted on January 16, 2009 at 8:30pm 6 Comments

The importance of friendship.

Posted on November 4, 2008 at 10:51am 4 Comments

The outcome could so easily have been so much worse for so many people.

Not to mention the superior picture quality I can attain by using my 20" iMac.



The problem is, that there are far less tuners available for Mac than there are for a Windows… Continue

Geeks, like anyone, can feel down. The same problems that affect non-geeks can also affect geeks. So the question has to be asked. How do geeks stay happy?



I personally. have struggled for a number of years with depression, anxiety and motivational issues. This is something I have sought help with and am now much better for it. The methods of course, that geeks may employ to stay happy might vary greatly, so I am seeking a… Continue
