A Different Kind of Ad-Blocker

We pretty much all hate ads, right? Especially on our favorite websites. Yes, I know, those ads help pay for the site, and I even have some, hopefully unintrusive, ads on one of my sites. But, the honest truth is that even I hate ads. In fact, I’ve been thinking about dropping the ads on […]

Music for Gaming

Ambient music with the gamer in mind. Last week, I brought you a blog which explored the latest, and classic, MP3 music. This week, I’m bringing you a link to more music, but of a different kind. I’m sure it won’t surprise anyone who reads my blog that I was a table-top role-playing gamer. Yes, […]

Free Public Domain Photography Books

You know how I like free. I started out the year talking big about stepping up my photography, but, honestly, between a new job, my wife’s business, and trying to refinance our house to get a better mortgage rate before they go up, I just haven’t done that. I still intend to, eventually. Honest. In […]

More Free Music for Projects

I can’t believe I didn’t include this last week. Okay, so this may be a little boring for people who aren’t thinking about creating videos or setting their home movies to music, but, boring people with this blog has never stopped me from sharing something before, so I won’t let it now.  This free and […]

Uncle Walt’s Health Tips for Men

Seriously, health tips from Walt Whitman himself. I think about health a lot, because I’m overweight.  My cardiologist would like me to lose at least 20 pounds, preferably more.  He just doesn’t quite buy that my wife, being a good Southern woman, expresses her love for me through food.  And, she really loves me.  Seriously. […]

SysAdmin Screencasts

Not my usual Friday Fun, but great for system administrators trying to get ahead. And, not too bad for power users trying to figure out some of what the professional system administrators are talking about when they’re trying to talk over your head. What I’ve got for you this week, gentle readers, are “bite-sized” system […]

Science Fiction Short Films

Also, they’re free. In 2015, Sploid, a sub-site of Gizmodo, had a short film festival. Just to be clear, that’s a festival of short films. There were 21 films, many of which include some actors you may recognize. All the films were creative and, frankly, pretty amazing. And, let’s face it, it’s Friday and you’re […]

Positive Thinking

I think everyone could use a little positive thinking this week. I know I sure could! I have read more than my fair share of self-help books and the one thing they all mostly have in common is the idea of “positive thinking”.  Whether it’s The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale or […]

Get More from Your Commute

Our commutes don’t have to be dead time. Who doesn’t have a commute any more?  Mine is relatively short now.  Less than 30 minutes, actually.  But, when I lived in Chicago, it was at least an hour each direction, whether I was behind the wheel driving or riding on a train or bus.  I used […]

Christmas Music for Free

Yes, free Christmas music. Normally, I share this sort of thing well in advance of Christmas, but, well, time got away from me.  Still, I love Christmas music of almost any kind and everyone loves things that are free.  So, combining the two is my way of spreading some holiday cheer! For a number of […]
