When Stargate Universe was first on the horizon, I had high hopes for it. After all Stargate SG-1 was awesome, and Stargate Atlantis was just as good, if not better (Editor’s Note: We like to pretend that Stargate Infinity doesn’t exist). Unfortunately, my high hopes for the new series were not to be realized in [...]
For a while now we’ve been posting 5 days a week at 10am. This has worked fairly well for us, but as of late it has gotten a bit sticky. We find ourselves having to “cheat” more often on the times of the posts. As such, John and I have decided to push the posting [...]
At work we’ve been playing with SIP softphone clients. There are a number of remote workers and this would be much more convenient for them to use than something like Skype. Of course, first I had to fix NAT/SIP issues which is another post for another time. Today’s post is about a softphone client I [...]

It never ceases to amaze me how much FedEx can fucking fail. They’re logistics department has got a complicated job, yes. They’ve got to get packages from Point A to Point B (which can be next door, across the country or around the world) in a timely manner on the cheap. From what I can [...]

Last night, I randomly decided that I should see what kind of manga readers I could find for the iPad. It’s got the screen quality that the Kindle lacks, and it is plenty spacious. My one requirement for the app is native support for CBR and CBZ formats (which is what i keep all my [...]
September is an interesting month when it comes to the TV. There are actually shows worth watching coming on the air. Occasionally there is even a promising (ie not reality TV) new show that might be worth watching. One of the new ones this season is “Nikita” styled after Le Femme Nikita of the 90s [...]
Since I’ve started working for a company in San Francisco, I’ve been taking BART everyday for my commute. While I’ve ridden Bart many times in the past, this is the first time I’ve been doing it regularly. It is really nice and convenient, but I’ve found out, that like all things, there are some downsides.
Recently, I decided to challenge myself and actually use OSX (for a daily machine) and an iPad (because it was there). Part of this was to increase my familiarity with the devices and partially because my workplace runs basically all Mac. I was going to have to get used to them sooner or later, and [...]
