LCD Handheld Games Now Part of the Internet Archive

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 20:15:20 +0000

I just got lost down a rat-hole of nostalgia. The Internet Archive has recently added a collection of playable old-school handheld video games. Their new Handheld History section houses close to 75 versions of retro handheld games. You can play them emulated right in your browser window! My brothers and I had a number of... Read more »

2017 Holiday Geek Gift Guide

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 15:48:13 +0000

Another Black Friday, and (the terribly named) Cyber Monday have passed us by, so that means it’s time for another Holiday Geek Gift Guide. This is year number 14 for this gift guide. It started before there even was a Cyber Monday as a way for me to help with my own gift-giving for (geeky)... Read more »

Cutting Cable with Android TV and an OTA Antenna

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 21:29:32 +0000

It’s been quite some time since I’ve made any updates to our home media system. It’s worked really well for quite a few years. We had been using an older Windows Media Center computer with an XBox 360 as an extender to other TV’s. The last update to that system was back in 2012, adding... Read more »

Mentos History

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 23:51:24 +0000

It’s been awhile since I’ve made a Mentos post. Don’t worry, I still love them and am still obsessed with them. I still get rare Mentos deliveries from other countries (via my Mentos Ambassadors) In fact, I’m sitting next to a large pile of rare Mentos as I type this post. I was scrolling through...

Smart Home Part Two: Smartthings, Amazon Echo, and Harmony Remote

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 13:47:02 +0000

Check out my last smart home post, Making My House a Bit Smarter with SmartThings, to see how things got started. I’ve been slowly making additions to make my home smarter over the past year. I received an Amazon Echo for my birthday this year (thanks Jess!). Out of the box, it has the ability... Read more »

The Robots are Writing Christmas Songs

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 17:34:29 +0000

I’m pretty sure this is one of the indicators of the upcoming robot rebellion. Apparently the University of Toronto pointing some artificial intelligence at a photo of a Christmas tree, and it came up with a (very odd) Christmas song. This “neural karaoke” program can look at an image and make it into a creepy... Read more »

Another Black Friday has passed us by. It’s now Cyber Monday and the beginning of cyber week (is that new? how long have we called it cyber week?) so that means it’s time for another Holiday Geek Gift Guide. This is the 13th year I’ve created a gift guide. It started as a way for... Read more »

Doom 2 Seinfeld Edition

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 02:37:24 +0000

A brilliant developer (and Seinfeld fan) Doug Keener has created a Seinfeld version of Doom 2… and it’s awesome! You can download and play the game too.

Amazon Dash Button for Mentos

Thu, 14 Jul 2016 02:15:31 +0000

If ever there was a frivolous device it’s the Amazon Dash Button. Unfortunately, they made one I couldn’t turn down. You all know that I’m obsessed with Mentos, so when I discovered there was a Dash Button that would send me Mentos at the touch of a button, I had to order it. It showed... Read more »

Making My House a Bit Smarter with SmartThings

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 13:29:13 +0000

I have been thinking about how to make my home smarter for a little while now, but never really had a truly compelling reason to make the investment. The most common use of smart home devices seemed to be turning on and off lights, which didn’t really appeal to me. I think a physical light... Read more »
