Collected Freebies

You all know how I love free stuff. And, those of you poor souls who have been coming to this blog, week after week, also know that I am as lazy as I can possibly manage to be. Toward that end, I do my absolute best to share only the best links stolen from other […]

Hacker Games

Sounds like a good title for a book! Except it’s not. In my day job, I’m a professional geek. And, what I mean by that is that I work with computers for money. It seems like the vast majority of the guys my age who got into computers professionally did so because they were inspired […]

Government Approved Webcomics

I’ve been sick for the past two weeks, so I’m short on thinky-talky-writey energy. Still, trooper that I am, I’m here with a link to fabulous free things for you, like I have been every Friday for years beyond easy count. Honestly, I’m not even sure why I continue to do it most weeks, but, […]

Neon Flames

It’s like finger-painting with stars. You know how there are all those studies that say coloring is good for adults? That it helps us manage stress and all that? Well, I believe them. I have found that a little bit of coloring really has taken the edge off for me. I’m not quite as convinced […]

New Year’s Resolutions

Another new year and another chance to break promises to myself! I almost never bother with New Year’s Resolutions any more.  I mean, honestly, how many of us actually keep them?  Sure the gyms and churches are all full in January, but by Spring, we’re usually back to our old ways again.  Still it’s traditional, […]

Tracking The Fat Man

Time to watch for the jolly old elf! As I usually do at this time of year, I’m reminding you of where to find Santa and, more specifically, how to track his progress. During the Cold War, NORAD stood between us and what we were sure was complete destruction at the hands of the Soviets. […]

It’s Not Magic

It’s an illusion! At least, that’s what Doug Henning would say. Hey, look, it’s been a rough month.  What with the elections, the holiday and NaNoWriMo, you’ve had a lot going on.  I mean, a lot. No matter who you wanted to win the Presidential Elections this year, the campaign has been brutal.  And, frankly, […]

Aerial View

One more aerial view thing next week and I’ll have an actual theme for the month. Once upon a time, I used to watch a lot of the food and restaurant related reality television that seemed to run on the more obscure cable channels.  One of my favorites was Bar Rescue.  And, one of the […]

Haphead: A SciFi Webseries

As my long-time readers will know, I love science fiction and I love free. Haphead is both. Haphead is a science fiction webseries available on YouTube and is about a dark future where interactive gaming has taken on a level of interactivity and realism beyond anything we could have hoped for.  The “haphead” referred to […]

A Free Civilization

No, this is not a political post. I do my best not to openly participate in politics, frankly, because it all seems like a fool’s game.  On the other hand, simulation games have been known to unduly entertain me for embarrassingly extended lengths of time.  For a lot of my childhood, I played role-playing games.  […]
