The White House Goes Open Source.

Posted by grelmar on October 30th, 2009

I’m a bit under the gun here.  I was actually working, and kinda lost track of time.  Now I’m staring down 40 minutes to make my personally imposed “deadline.”  Let’s see if I can come up with a couple of hundred words. I think I’ll stick with the tech theme of the past couple of […]

Feeling better. Still looking for something to say.

Posted by grelmar on October 28th, 2009

I wouldn’t exactly call it writer’s block.  Obviously, I can still crank out a few lines. But I just don’t really have much to talk about tonight. I suppose I’ll talk about Windows 7. I haven’t actually installed it on a system yet.  But, oddly, I’m really looking forward to it.  I played around with […]

Net Neutrality: It matters, dummy.

Posted by grelmar on March 11th, 2009

Subtitle:  The heavyweights are scrapping over this, and the little guy is bound to get crushed. This is one of those arguments that has been going on in tech/policy circles for years, and because it’s just ever so slightly esoteric, the mass media hasn’t really picked up on it.  And that’s a shame, because it […]

The Hack Thing…

Posted by grelmar on August 21st, 2008

I have really mixed emotions about being hacked this afternoon. On one hand, it kinda made me proud, in a perverse sort of way.  Sure, it was my own damn fault for not keeping the backend up to date, which is indicative of my “maintenance laziness.”  You can ask my wife about that.  Give me […]

More Senseless Destruction

Posted by grelmar on December 22nd, 2007

Subtitle: Taking out the Christmas Blahs on some Defenseless Monitors. This video actually was taken on three different occasions over the past couple of weeks since I posted the last video. This time, we take out some monitors. As a result of viewer feedback from the last video, we shot a couple of specific sequences. […]

Ubuntu Makes Me Happy

Posted by grelmar on December 13th, 2007

Subtitle: Linux Will Conquer All The first time I used a computer was back in the late 70’s. My dad used to take me with him to his office if he had to work a few hours on a Saturday (I think to get me out of my mom’s hair). He’d plunk me down in […]

The Return of Futurama! WooHoo!

Posted by grelmar on November 27th, 2007

Just caught this on Wired. Apparently, Futurama went back into production in 2005 and 16 new episodes have been created and are slated to be released on DVD today. Then, the episodes are set to air on Comedy central sometime next year. By the time it airs on Comedy Central, it will be almost 6 […]

Nerdgasm Moment – Rocket Powered 21 Foot Model X-Wing

Posted by grelmar on October 3rd, 2007

Subtitle: Now THESE Guys Have Way Too Much Time On Their Hands. Hmmm… Looks like I completely skipped September, as far as posting here. Oh Well. Anyway, some Ubergeeks in California have built a 21 Foot scale model of an X-Wing. Which wouldn’t be that big of a deal, really, because lots of geeks have […]

I have an idea…

Posted by grelmar on July 19th, 2007

Subtitle: Be afraid… Be very, very, afraid. So I was chatting (online) with a friend this morning, and we had one of those “random moments” that only occur in type. Among the many beauties of online chat, (one of the chief ones being that your boss, when they can’t see your monitor, can’t tell the […]

A little e-card humor.

Posted by grelmar on June 1st, 2007

Subtitle: No, I’m not getting paid for this plug… Via Compiler: I really hate e-cards, for too many reasons to list. But these are damn funny. If you want to send some high quality snark to someone’s inbox, why not leave it to the pros at Do it right, and you can make it […]
