Why You Need a Software Firewall, and Security at Wifi Hotspots

I’m get­ting tired of answer­ing ques­tions at Yed­da or Yahoo!Answers, then see­ing my answers scraped and used as con­tent on oth­er peo­ple’s blogs. I’m prob­a­bly going to keep answer­ing the ques­tions, but just answer­ing with a point­er to a post here or at one of my oth­er sites. Ordi­nar­i­ly, I’d put this par­tic­u­lar answer over […]

It Is the Flu

And now I have it, too. Damn it. I had tried to get back to blog­ging dai­ly, but good inten­tions just did­n’t hold a can­dle against the entire house­hold com­ing down with the flu.1 For some rea­son I thought Tam­i­flu was a one or two-pill affair, but I sup­pose I had it con­fused with one […]

Oh. That Would Do It! (That Problem With Posting to LJ)

I’ve tried all the dif­fer­ent plu­g­ins that claim to work with Word­Press for cross-post­ing to Live­Jour­nal, but recent­ly I’ve got­ten errors from every­thing. I’ve asked for help from the authors in their forums and noth­ing seemed to be hap­pen­ing. And then I saw this: Banned Because of Live+Press’ Bad Behav­ior. That’s from the cur­rent maintainer […]

Review: Walking Dead by C.E. Murphy

Walk­ing Dead by C.E. Mur­phy My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars I’ve enjoyed the oth­er Walk­er Papers nov­els, but Walk­ing Dead def­i­nite­ly showed more depth and matu­ri­ty than the ear­li­er vol­umes. Both the author and her lead char­ac­ter have grown very nice­ly. Joanne is far from per­fect, but she does­n’t make the same mis­takes over and […]

Maybe It Isn’t the Flu

Katie seems to be feel­ing a bit bet­ter. She slept through most of the day, and just got up a few min­utes ago (right at the end of my and Sam’s date) feel­ing like she could eat some­thing. Sol­id food, even! That’s progress. Since she did­n’t have any antivi­rals, I don’t think this was really […]

The Flu? But That’s Why We Had Shots!

My girl has the flu! And she had not one, but two flu shots this year! She caught it from her sweet­ie down at Geor­gia Tech, and if there’s a place in Geor­gia that’s more inter­na­tion­al than the air­port, that’s it. So I sup­pose it’s one of those strains that she was­n’t vac­ci­nat­ed against. But still! […]

Microsoft Fail — MS Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000 Review and Tale of A Painful Free Upgrade

That should­n’t be worth post­ing about, but it took more work than it should have. Sum­ma­ry: I prob­a­bly should have stuck with Log­itech wire­less keyboard/mouse com­bi­na­tions, because I did­n’t have a prob­lem with the pre­vi­ous set I had and nev­er had occa­sion to call their tech­ni­cal sup­port. But since I bought a Microsoft prod­uct, it […]

Book Review: By Blood We Live

By Blood We Live by John Joseph Adams My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars This thing is an enor­mous tome! I don’t know if it has been released in hard­back or not, but if it has, that ver­sion has to be anchor-wor­thy. I request­ed it from the library because Eliz­a­beth Bear and Sarah Mon­ette had stories […]
