Better than Flappy Bird. Because Orbits!

Yeah, Flappy Bird got old quick, but this little gem has me trapped in its grav­ity well (see what I did there?). Flappy Space Pro­gram, just like Flappy Bird, is simple. Click to launch your bird. Now, keep tap­ping to over­come grav­ity and launch your bird into orbit. Simple no? Ok, now add anoth­er bird. […]

Paper pocket organizer inclined toward photographers

Thought I’d take a moment and post a pock­et paper organ­izer (I know, me, and paper? How low tech!) I’ve been work­ing with. Basic­ally, some­thing to keep me on track, and write on when I quickly need to jot a note or some­thing. Has the 2012 cal­en­dar which, if I remem­ber, I’ll update to 2013. […]

A book to tide me over until the next Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend

Last week­end was great fun as @tturbo and the rest of our years-old Guild Wars group jumped in to the most recent Beta Week­end event. But now the event is done, and the wait con­tin­ues for the *next* event, and I’m find­ing I need more of the world to explore. Behold! So ‘a man has […]

Using your Android or iOS tablet as a second monitor

As we’ve seen pre­vi­ously (The more screens, the bet­ter — Our guide to mul­tiple mon­it­ors ), hav­ing more screens to dis­trib­ute your desktop across can be a huge bene­fit to your com­put­ing exper­i­ence. And as you’ll have noticed in the title, if you’ve got a tab­let, you can even bring it into the mix, as long […]

#Winning on Friday the 13th

Today is Fri­day the 13th. The only Fri­day the 13th of 2011 as it works out. This spe­cif­ic date has spe­cial sig­ni­fic­ance for me — and it has noth­ing to do with movies. Since Fri­day the 13ths occur so infre­quently, and are  some­what fam­ous, I use the day as a semi-ran­­dom chance to get my […]

Have you backed up your data today?

Today is World Backup Day, I’m told, but to be frank, every day you should be think­ing about the safety of your data, there’s just too much of it that’s irre­place­able. So, today, I’m going to take a quick look at some of the backup sys­tems I use and have in place. Yes, I said […]

How-To: Streaming stuff around your house

In this increas­ingly wire­less world, it seems odd that it’s actu­ally kinda dif­fi­cult to get music or oth­er media from one device to anoth­er. In my case, I have pho­tos, movies and music all stored on a cent­ral stor­age device on my net­work — a Net­work Attached Stor­age device, or NAS. Get­ting to that media […]
