Password Management with LastPass


In the wake of this mind blowing Heartbleed bug that has the entire world coddling naked in a corner, it’s time for everyone to do a little Internet housekeeping and general security maintenance. I won’t try and explain the bug, others have explained Heartbleed way better than I can. You can’t worry if you were […]

This IT Pro Will Only Recommend Apple


I make my living with Microsoft. I live my life with Apple. And yes, more increasingly, so does my family. It is too hard to not recommend Apple for personal use. That’s nothing against Windows. I love Windows. To me, everything is easy with Windows. I know it. Even when it changes, those changes normally […]

Trakt TV Tracking

Tech, Television

I’ve spent years documenting my life in almost every way shape and form. Some people value privacy, I apparently am not one of them. I’ve been on-again, off-again, blogging since 1997. I like being able to know what was going on, and what I was doing, at almost any given time in my life. Even […]

Dropbox File Sharing


Even though I perform regular backups of my system, I’m betting you don’t. Start using Dropbox to back up your stuff. Keep it all in the cloud. Get to it from anywhere. That’s what makes it even cooler. There’s even an iPhone app that lets you access your stuff. Have a picture on your computer? […]

Chrome’s the Word


Don’t you know that Chrome is the word? I have officially switched over to Google Chrome. I tried it when it first came out but wasn’t impressed enough to make the switch. Maybe I didn’t give it a good enough chance. Then a couple weeks ago Taylor suggested that I re-evaluate the browser so I […]

WordPress iPhone App

Site News, Tech

WordPress even has a nifty iPhone app for mobile publishing. Don’t know if I’ll use it much because a phone isn’t too great for writing but it’s comforting to know it’s there. I’m currently watching: Two and a Half Men
