Top Ten Reasons to use Ubuntu

Top Ten Reasons to use Ubuntu: Now that I am officially “switched”, I will outline the reasons why Ubuntu rises to the top of other Linux variants available. Hardware Recognition: I would have to say that Ubuntu is by far the best Linux variant available today for hardware recognition. I have installed Dapper Drake (the […]

YouTube no more

They blocked YouTube at work today. I really liked that site and can see how it can be addictive. Some people must have overused their welcome…

Thinking ruined my life…

I read this over on Foo’s Blog which Tim sent him and thought it was kinda funny: It started out innocently enough. I began to think at parties now and then – just to loosen up. Inevitably, though, one thought led to another, and soon I was more than just a social thinker. I began […]

Define Irony

How about a president that spearheads an effort to raise the fine for obscenities on the airwaves and then be the first to be punished. News link here

HorsePigCow on Marketing

Have you ever been a teenage girl on MySpace? What do you mean you want to design a social tagging application that […]

His new St. Bernard puppy, still a tiny white and brown ball of fur, frightened “Joe,” and the wallaroo pushed through a gate and hopped […]
