A Death at Chaos Manner

Jerry Pournelle is dead.  He died recently in his sleep according to his son as posted on his website.  I’d love to say I was a huge fan of his sci fi, but really, I think I’ve only read Lucifer’s Hammer.  That was pretty much because I was a Larry Niven fan at the time. …

Gamers are Different

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while.  Video games change the way you dream.  One of the things I’ve love about games is the way they encourage flexible thinking.  I’m also a fan of increased agency in dreams, games and real life.  Future games should give us more freedom to choose our own …

Dubious Quality Bookstore

I’ve known Bill Harris of Dubious Quality for a long time even though it’s been years since we’ve seen each other.  A while back after he kept recommending books, I set up a simple Amazon astore for him to show him how easy it was.  He didn’t want to deal with it.  He told me …

Teen Wolf [TV]

The new season of Teen Wolf has started on MTV.  As old as I am, it’s just bizarre for TV seasons to start in the middle of summer.  In fact, I only knew about the season start because I followed a twitter link and saw it trending.  This spring I caught up on Teen Wolf …

May the Fourth

It’s Star Wars day.  I’m going to give you my list of the top 10 Star Wars games that I’ve played.  Note that I’ve played many more Star Wars games than that, but not all deserve a mention.  I’m rolling expansion packs and DLC into the main game if applicable. 10. Masters of the Teras …

Email not Sending

All of a sudden a few weeks ago, my email stopped sending.  It wasn’t on all of my accounts or devices.  I could receive email, but I couldn’t send it.  Eventually I figured I could send from my phone and webmail for my email and gmail.  So it had to be the way my local …

Earth is Safe

Lookout is the antivirus software on my android phone.  It scans in the background, but it also scans any time an app is updated.  Most of my apps are ‘trusted’ apps and allowed to update on their own.  Every once in a while Google updates Google Earth.  Once it does, Lookout scans it.  Then I …

Add on Items

Back when Amazon Prime first started, I liked it for convenient shipping.  They’ve since added a lot to the Prime package.  I was initially worried that the shipping  combined with 1-click ordering would result in too many impulse purchases.  In fact, I didn’t turn on 1-click for a while after I subscribed to Prime.  It …

StickNFind

This is kind of cool.  Bluetooth powered stickers so you never lose that remote again. StickNFind. Yes, it’s another kickstarter (ok, Indiegogo) project, but it’s already funded.  I can think of a few people who could use this as a gift.
