Happy Canada Day

Posted by grelmar on July 1st, 2008

Subtitle: Durn Proud to be Canuck Ok, I actually mounted the flag Saturday.  It’ll stay up until Labour Day.   Same drill every year: Flag goes up the weekend before Canada Day, and comes down on Labour Day.

Weaponize Your Pentium II

Posted by grelmar on May 25th, 2008

Subtitle: Yes, I have way too much time and spare parts… Now, you might think that, given the order of posts, the following project was inspired by the Conan Night I held last weekend, but the two are fairly unrelated. Actually, the inspiration for the following project came during the winter when I started to […]

Conan Night

Posted by grelmar on May 19th, 2008

Subtitle: A Little Backyard Guerrilla Theatre A few weeks back a friend and I got to talking about old movies we loved when we were kids. Eventually, the conversation turned to Conan the Barbarian, which I have in my video collection. One thing led to another, and I decided to do a bit of guerrilla […]

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 […]

Sick Day Pick Me Up

Posted by grelmar on August 14th, 2007

Subtitle: Sharing a nice music find with my readers (both of you). So, this weekend I finally got around to hooking up the old stereo and record player to one of my computers. Months and months ago, I’d acquired a very nice M Audio sound card, specifically with the purpose of hooking up the steroe […]

Getting in touch with my inner artist.

Posted by grelmar on June 10th, 2007

Subtitle: “Artist” might be too strong a word… If you read this blog a lot (all 3 of you out there), you might get the sense that I’m a bit nostalgic for “old stuff.” My ’76 Impala wagon, the J2W2 Bus (which, I’m slowly bringing my wife around to thinking is a good idea), and […]

Ever have one of those nightmares?

Posted by grelmar on May 24th, 2007

This is kinda weird, and maybe writing about it will get it off my chest… Normally, I don’t get nightmares. Well, at least not very often. And when I do, they’re usually about zombies. Yeah, I know. I watch too many zombie movies. Thing about the zombie nightmares is that if they wake me up, […]

test podcaster

Posted by grelmar on May 22nd, 2007

Just testing a podcast plugin. In general, I like to risk screwing up my own site before I try and plug it into a site I manage for someone else. Go figure. Enjoy a bit of “GP Radio” – a podcast for a site within the Green Political Movement.

Flying isn’t fun anymore

Posted by grelmar on February 6th, 2007

Subtitle: And no, it’s not just the postt 9-11 crap. There was a time, many years ago, where the anticipation leading up to taking a flight somewhere, anywhere, would bring on two or three days worth of giddy excitement. That time would have been about 20 odd years ago.
