Spending the week at Summerfest

I am just about up with my week at Summerfest and getting ready to come on on this Tuesday and I have to say this is the coolest music festival I have ever had the pleasure of attending. So far over 200 bands have played on the various stages in the festival park, and a … Read more

Resident apps suck the life out of Vista

For the last 3 or 4 weeks, since my PC died, I have been running Vista Home Premium strictly and I still have to say – even with SP 1, there are a lot of reasons why a normal user would get bent, and even more reasons why someone like me could get fed up … Read more

Open season on cyclists….

Just what in the name of Sam Hill is going on with people and some vicious vendetta they have against cyclists this year? So far, this is the worst year I can remember for cyclists being assaulted by idiotic, careless, and pissed-off drivers. I read an article in Velo News in April about a cop … Read more

The X Prize challenges so far have spurred great competition and amazing innovation, but yet one of the latest – the Google Lunar X Prize leaves me with the sour taste of lameness. In a world where everything seems to have some version number slapped on it, web 2.0, (and God help us; web 3.0), … Read more
