I’m back (for reals this time)

Q Me News 1 Comment

This post should be short and sweet, but the gist is: I’m back. I’ve got a few posts in the works, and I’m working on some potential guest-posters. Life got real interesting for me for a while (mostly good things), and a new family member kept me quite busy. Like I said, it’s been a good kind of interesting! As …

Fear and Uncertainty (a poem that seems appropriate)

Q Causes, Me News, Writing Leave a Comment

This is a poem that I’ve been writing off and on for a few weeks. I know it’s not the usual shtick for my blog, and it’s not likely to win any awards (I’m no great poet).

Kids tend to be more honest, more forgiving, and more decisive than adults.  They don’t hold grudges–after an argument is resolved, …

Review: ASUS Transformer TF101 after more than two years

Q Geekery, Me News, Tech review 10 Comments

  Everyone is always reviewing the newest tech. When you hit sites like Ars Technica (one of my personal favorites) or Engadget, you get reviews on devices that either aren’t out, or have just came out. They’ve been in the hands of testers for a few weeks, or sometimes months, and then you get a review. That’s great, and I …
