I really don’t have much time to write, but I am always annoyed when I try and unzip large files. It takes forever using Windows Vista’s built-in zip utility. If you don’t believe me, check out this screenshot: This is a 60MB file and it’s extracting at 7 bytes/sec. Doing some quick math: 62,914,560 bytes […]

March Madness has come again and my friends are all asking me to join their pools. No joke, I’ve had at least one dozen requests during the past week or two. What have I done with most of these requests? Edwin Starr’s memorable song “War” comes to mind. In case you don’t know what I’m […]

I’m at home in California watching TV while fixing my friend’s laptop. It’s been a relaxing day—I spent the morning playing some tennis and lounging by the pool. Anyway, Spike TV has got to be one of the greatest channels alive. It is the epitome of male testosterone. Looking at the TV Guide presents the […]
