How John Ringo Ruined My Zombie Apocalypse

May 2nd, 2016

I have a zombie problem, a serious one. No, the dead are not walking up to my porch, pounding on the back door to get inside for a screaming snack. Those are just socialist wanna-be’s trying to get at any extra cash I may have stashed away. The zombie problem I have is more cerebral […]

Sitting, waiting for the replacement of a bad brake light switch that set off an impressive number of warning lights this morning.

Civilization Does Not Fall…

October 2nd, 2012

Civilization does not “fall” in any classical sense. Certainly historians like to examine events and trends and draw lines in the past where one would say Rome fell, or Persia, or the Delian League; however, these are the constructs of modern eyes looking back rather than the observations of those living through those times. One […]

Light At The End Of The Tunnel

January 22nd, 2010

There is an offer letter on the way and this 9 Month, 3 week long adventure in unemployment will be coming to a close. It’s an interesting company and a good group of people so I’m pretty psyched up about it. Of course I’m also apprehensive as hell- that’s just how I always am with […]

October Update!

October 29th, 2009

So, what’s been going on? I had an excellent interview up at Dartmouth Hitchcock in Lebanon, NH. The position didn’t pan out, but they were a great group of people and at least I was able to sit down and talk shop for a while. A few other nibbles have been popping up, but nothing […]

Summer cometh and still no job…

June 16th, 2009

Well, it certainly has been a while, hasn’t it? I’ve been unemployed two months at this point and the initial rush of applications, resume re-makes and whatnot are complete and we are heading into the long slog known as summer, where job opportunities, already semi-scarce here in New Hampshire, really dry up. That’s not to […]

Unemployment Sucks

April 13th, 2009

Well, I got laid off today. I was expecting it, but I was hoping it would wait until Summer so I could at least co-sign my son’s school loan note. Anyhow, I have two blogs of my own and posting priviledges on two more that see far more action than my two combined so I’m […]

WordPress problems

January 6th, 2009

So, I posted the Novel and then discovered that anything bigger than about 20000 words went to blank grey after that point.  I tried reposting using IE7 instead of Firefox and now everything looks great, sort of, as long as you’re using IE. Anything else and it’s a crap shoot, so if anyone stumbles across […]

Ice Storm

December 12th, 2008

Well it’s been an interesting 20 hours or so here in New Hampshire. About an inch of ice fell, covering everything, closing most major roads and cutting power to about half a million homes and businesses… except right here where I live. Our power flickered a couple of times, the internet never failed and I’ve […]

“A trillion here, a trillion there and soon you’re talking real money.”

December 2nd, 2008

Trudy Schuett over at Dean’s World just posted a doozy of an idea, but got the math wrong by six digits. The idea was to foregoe all the banking bailouts and just give every American a million bucks. She claimed a cost of 300 million dollars- that’s where the six missing zeroes popped up- try […]
