Last week Jon and I attended the 6.27 SF New Tech’s bi-monthly event. SFNT has a long history of putting on events to allow people in technology to have a place to meet, network, and keep up with the latest technology trends in the Bay Area. Even with the long history, this was our first [...]
As part of my ongoing summer cooking series, here are a few summer drinks to enjoy with your friends! These are Spanish inspired drinks that go great with Tapas, and fresh seafood.
Recently Lauren and I attended an open house for a Datacenter/Hosting Company. Since it was an open house, there was no set schedule other than the event starting at 4 PM. I mention this because we showed up within a few minutes of the start time at a point in which there was basically no [...]
Since it is now summer and heating up, I have decided to do a series of posts featuring recipes to help beat the heat! Soba is Japanese noodles made from buckwheat flour. They can be served chilled with a dipping sauce, or in a hot broth as a noodle soup.
We’ll call this post a PSA. As of today, John is off on this crazy thing called a “vacation” (aka Fleeing the country). As he is the Master Of English around these parts, we’re throwing a little party while he’s gone. The party is where Lauren and I slaughter the English language for shits and [...]
Guild Wars 2 had an open beta this past weekend and I received an invite since I had pre-ordered the game (back in August of 2009, for the record). It was very clearly labeled as an open Beta, “Feel free to talk about it with your friends,” noted the load screen. Sure, it’s just NCSoft [...]

Somewhere between 350,000 to 400,000 internet users are currently infected with some very nasty malware known as “DNSChanger”. It got this very clever title because it… wait for it… changes your DNS. Hijacking someone’s DNS would allow bad guys to do click-fraud, login hijacking, man-in-the middle attacks, or any number of bad things. Fortunately the [...]
As everyone knows, today is IPv6 Launch Day, where we (the internet) are supposed to turn on (and leave on) IPv6. It saddens me that I am unable to participate in this launch day by turning on IPv6… because We’ve been natively v6 accessible since June 2011. Even before that, Snowulf & company were accessible [...]
I’ve been using WordPress on Snowulf for almost two years. In that time, one of the most important things I learned was how to enable updates via SSH/FTP. Today, I bring you something that may very well relegate that post to an amusing anecdote. It turns out that the more recent versions of WordPress, with [...]
