Having worked in IT for years, I have to say that I get tired of the bum rap we receive. Information Technology workers are generally portrayed as self-absorbed, arrogant know-it-alls with some sort of personality disorder. My least favorite example is “Mordac the Refuser”, the IT person from the Dilbert comic strip. I can’t help […]
I used to work in a customer support center. Not the best job ever. This isn’t going to be a rant about dealing with people who thought that right-clicking meant you used the mouse in your right hand (really), but the downside of tech support: Having to treat every single user as someone who knew […]
Most people tend to forget that there’s more to computing than just desktops and laptops (with a side order of smartphones and tablets). Part of that may be because the computer companies tend to focus on selling those to us. Desktops may sometimes be all-in-ones, but that doesn’t change what they are. Laptops get relabeled […]
As my regular readers know, I love tablets. It is possible that said love is a bit more than any human should have for inanimate objects. I insist that this is healthy. My loyal tablet never leaves my side; my daily routine is wake up, check mail on tablet; stow; come to the office, dock […]
For the uninitiated, FUD has nothing to do with Elmer Fudd. It stands for Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt. A lot of people would rather not deal with the uncertain and stay with the devices that they have. Worse, some people will want to switch, but then give in FUD and decline. I’m seeing a ton […]
Planning a major life-cycle event is not much fun to begin with. Add to that doing so after having moved halfway across the country to a new city. That’s what happened with us when it came time to plan our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah, having just moved from New York City to Houston Texas. I needed […]
Several technologies can be said to have made the world smaller. The car made the next town over a trip you could take without thinking about, the airplane made the other side of the world a destination instead of an abstraction, and email made letter writing instantaneous. So to has social networking has changed how […]
I am an unabashed geek, and a lot of that traces back to Star Trek. Aside from old sitcoms, that may have been the one series my siblings and I all watched. We even bought the novels and the comics. People love to point out how we’re in the 21st century and short of teleporters, […]
During my days as a help desk technician, I largely switched over to Apple computers at home. The most basic reason was that, after working with malfunctioning Windows-based machines all day, I wanted to come home to a different set of problems. Yes, that’s right – Macs aren’t perfect. However, I’m not going to lie […]
I’ve been working on a few other things lately, and thought I’d share. My new site, techcitement is getting decent traffic. If you’re in to tech, you may like it. My big post for today was on how to get an iPad2 for a hundred and change. Tomorrow, I’ll have something kind of fun up […]
sorry everyone. Ben working so hard on Techcitement that I honestly haven’t had time to read. Anyone see the GL movie? Does Hal knock himself out at any point?
New content is coming. I promise. However, I have another project I’d like to share with you all: Techcitement This is a “team” blog, with a focus on cool technology that catches our eyes and basically the rants of a bunch of gadget geeks. We’re always looking for contributors, if you want to play. Other […]
There will be a blog post today with actual content. Really. However, right now I’d like to make an appeal of sorts. NCSY, a Jewish Youth Group (that my parents actually met in) affiliated with the Orthodox Union (largest Koser certifier in the world), is having a big contest with Apple. The prize is a […]
Still no new panels from me guys, but let’s hear it for Matt. I’d forgotten about today’s post. So I’ve been using an old HTC Touch, hacked to run Android. I’m not a fan of Windows Mobile and to have a Palm Pre- which I *love* – means giving up my gandfathered plan and spending […]
Dear Verizon, WTF?
Shot in the dark, but I don’t suppose anyone has a batter for a 15″ Powerbook G4 Model M8407? Sigh.
So I keep all my scans and whatnot on a flashdrive. Today iIdecide I should really back it up…and it refuses to mount. Fortunately, I just uploaded a TON of stuff to the site, and a month’s posts are done… but all my Batman, Green lantern, and Golden Age unedited stuff was on there. As […]

This brings back memories. This isn’t much of an exaggeration of the size of a hard drive once upon a time. I once opened an ancient IBM machine and the drive was the size of your average tower system these days. I bet that sucker in the picture holds a whopping megabyte!
I think I’ve gone and lost all my Metal Man scanned pages and quips.
I done made a facebook profile I figure I’d link it here, since y’all know my name anyway, right? Now you can drink deeply of my beauty.
My Playstation 2 is finally dead. Disk read errors and nothing is fixing it. Feh. Then the stupid controller cable fell out and won’t go back in. How am I supposed to play Marvel:Ultimate Alliance now?
Does anyone have an old battery for any of these… Sony PCG-R505DSK Dell Lattitude L400 Clamshell iBook? If you do and would be willing to part with it, please let me know. Thanks.
I just flipped through some of the search terms that bring people to the site. Boy, some of y’all must be really disappointed: 1 455 8.24% gay 2 442 8.01% golden shower 3 441 7.99% spanking 4 421 7.63% supergirl 5 127 2.30% bondage 6 97 1.76% alex ross 7 90 1.63% wonder woman 8 […]
