Dieyuhbiddis, I’m a commin’ fer ya…

Pre-TL;DR – I raised some money. Wanna help me raise some more? I’ll give you a fake mustache if you donate. DONATE HERE: Hey, guess what!? I asked people for money, AND THEY GAVE IT TO ME! Well, not to me. That would be foolish. They gave it to people 1,000x times better than me. So there […]

Preface: I am not a “Oregonian” by many people’s standards. I feel that my decision to be a first wave Portlandia immigrant was dumb luck for a kid who chronically tried to hard to ever be really cool. Regardless, this post will probably  sound like ridiculous hipster navel-gazing and/or ivory tower bullshit. All I can […]

I still like the good ol’ WWW. Why? Because of stuff like this: Dan’s Data: PC Fan Maintanence This page fills me with joy and incredible sadness simultaneously.

Sorry, Comcast. My bad.

So one of the heavy burdens of working in tech is that is if something technical (e.g. your home internet) stops working properly, you are obliged by that malformed part of your brain that got you into IT in the first place to figure out WHY.  This can lead to all kinds of silliness, and […]
