I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

What kind of geek are you?
Still an amatuer
Why do you consider yourself a geek?
I have always wanted to know how things work, love gadgets, I find computer stats more interesting than any kind of sports stats and would rather be messing with a PC or researching stuff on the internet than watching a game. I think that qualifies me as some kind of geek.

I found Lockergnome through a search engine some time back and signed up to receive emails, I recently followed a link that lead me here.

Funny stuff ;)

Taking photos of the inside of my pc

T'was indeed meant as a compliment. Most doctors I'm familiar with have a self assured, quiet intelligent, and successful heir about them.

Devil May Cry 4 is a cool game, it was developed by Capcom which, as it happens , made the Resident Evil games, which, especially 4 & 5 are just sublime.

Posted on March 29, 2013 at 12:46pm 3 Comments

This is not intended to be a review or a debate about W8, I discovered this useful bit of software and thought I'd share it with you.

Personally I like using Windows 8 but feel that I could do without the Metro UI on a non-touchscreen pc.

I have only been using W8 as my main OS for a couple of weeks now and for most of it resisted the temptation to add a start button mod but a couple of days ago I gave in to it. This little program is called Start8 from…
