Battlefield 2142 Central Opened

My buddy Hee will remember us discussing this. I’ve opened the doors to my new Battlefield 2142 website. All the good short names were taken so I ended up with bf2142central.com. I have a feeling that there’s going to be a lot of competition from existing Battlefield 2 websites and a lot of BF2 players […]

Google Calendar Screenshots

TechCrunch has gotten possession of screenshots from Google’s long delayed new Ajax calendar application, which will be called “CL2″. It was only a matter of time before someone broke down and leaked these – as far as I know these screen shots are the first on the public web. Previous ones were almost certainly photoshopped […]

It’s Time

It is once again time, this time for good I hope, to quit smoking. It’s been a long while since my last failed attempt but I feel that now I am at a place in time where I am so sick of the habit, so feeling crappy about it, that I’m going to pull through. […]

Cranky Geeks

John C. Dvorak has a new talkshow on Digital Life TV entitled “Cranky Geeks”. The format should be familiar — John’s the host, and with three additional cranky guests, they debate the technology issues of the day. Check out the pilot episode here.
