I Finally Have A CMS

I finally gave in and decided it was time to upgrade the website. That’s right, no more using PHPMyAdmin to administer dotCULT. I took the plunge and installed WordPress. They were right about the 5 minute install.. it’s pretty easy to do. Customizing a theme however isn’t that easy. You’ll notice this page has no […]

MySpace Passwords Cracked

Wired has an article about the top 20 MySpace passwords. It seems some phisher gave them his data. Here’s the top 20: password1, abc123, myspace1, password, blink182, qwerty1, fuckyou, 123abc, baseball1, football1, 123456, soccer, monkey1, liverpool1, princess1, jordan23, slipknot1, superman1, iloveyou1 and monkey. The article concludes that users are getting smarter about passwords, as most […]

Only A Couple Shopping Days Left

I’m writing this post on an old 700mhz HP laptop while I lay in bed. It’s amazing how slow this seems compared to my brand new 3.something Gig Dell in the other room. It’s also weird using Windows ME and an old version of IE. It’s actually making this PHPMyAdmin text box grow as a […]

Stop Listing Religion in News Articles

I was reading a news article today about a man arrested in New York that contained the following line “the 25 year old muslim…” when I couldn’t help but think “is it really relevant to this story that the man was muslim?” Chances are, if he were catholic or protestant that his religion wouldn’t have […]

A Pile of Printers

I need a new printer. I just bought a new Dell (you can read about that ordeal) and now my HP PSC2210r doesn’t work anymore. I’ve tried getting new drivers, I’ve tried getting old drivers, I’ve tried some 3rd party drivers. I think it’s fried or something. Well, eventually with some driver tweaking I got […]

Another Way To Get Rankings

Everybody who does SEO for a living knows that it takes some hard work to build links, write relevant content, and make a useful site. It’s a full time job for some. So what do you do if you don’t have the time to give your cite the TLC it deserves? Simple: You write a […]

Toy Hall of Fame

It’s probably not official, but a website calling itself the national toy hall of fame lists 36 of the most popular toys of all time. How they came up with 36 is beyond me. So let’s see… of the 36 I’ve had 32 (33 if you count roller blades as roller skates.) Somehow my parents […]

New York Bans Trans Fats

New York has become the first city to ban restaurants from using Trans Fats in the food they serve. Research shows that these fats have little nutritional value, and can lead to health problems. But should they be banned? If you ask me, people should be free to eat whatever they want to eat. Smoking […]

How often do you come across a product being sold on the web that you deem INCREDIBLE? Melissa Pierce of Tampa, Florida says that almost everything is INCREDIBLE. In fact, she loves every product she uses so much that she has to write a testimonial about it. Take a Look. Some products are so INCREDIBLE […]

I have Blepharospasm

Update: I did a new post about this entitled why does my eye twitch. Remember a couple posts ago where I talk about 1/4 life crisis, being stressed out and the like? Well, it turns out I was right. I’ve come down with a case of Blepharospasm. What is Blepharospam? It’s Eyelid twitch. For the […]
