A good MoBo is a wonderful thing

Bad feelings gone After much grumping and generally pissed off stompings, I received my new MoBo yesterday, and got it installed into my sweet Asus Vento tower. This new board, the ASUS A8N32-Deluxe is an outstanding (and heavy) Motherboard. It took me less than an hour to get it hooked up, screwed down and Windows … Read more

Technological disappointment

You know, building a new computer  isn’t always what it is cracked up to be. Sure, you can save a few hundred to a thousand dollars doing it yourself – but what happens when the silicon poo-poo plater you just assembled craps it BIOS all over your keyboard? You get left holding the plastic bag, … Read more

Spiderman on the brain

Spiderman 3 is still just a bit more than 3 months away, and in true consumer-frenzy inducing fashion, Sony Pictures has completed a major upgrade to their website.

The joys of Linux

Off and on now for about a year I have been geeking out with Ubuntu as a dual boot on my machine. It’s been an interesting diversion, and now I am finally making some progress into figuring out how to get things loaded into my system. The thing that has continued to irritate and frustrate … Read more

Amazing Aurora imaging

This is pretty damned amazing! This image (captured by the IMAGE satellite) is an enhanced image of the Aurora over the southern pole. It’s enhanced, because you really wouldn’t have been able to see much of anything due to the fact that it was in the ultraviolet spectrum. There is a video as well, and … Read more

Large Format photography to the Nth degree

Having recently read an article in Novembers Popular Science (I know I’m a bit behind in my magazines – so what) I was pretty much left in complete awe of Graham Flints 9 x 18 inch camera. So basically, he’s using a custom machined lens(dubbed the Asymmagon) built on a customized camera which utilizes parts … Read more

All I want for Christmas is 1 extra second…

This is filed under science, but really it could be under "who gives a flying…". So according to the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS), there is a new standard unto which time is measured, and right now, we have gained literally seconds of time. Leap Seconds, as they are coined, can be … Read more

Are we living in a 2-D world?

According to some researchers, it is theoretically possible that we are living in a 2D reality, having out interpretations made into 3 dimensions by our brains. This is some pretty heavy, and intense information to digest – so if you want to do some more reading on it – So I wouldn’t suggest it while … Read more

D..D..Dude…Check it out!
