Paul Stamatiou points out that his internet connection was actually being maxed out with using 802.11g. He had to upgrade his network to 802.11n to get the full throughput his internet service provider offered. Maybe Comcast will get us DOCSIS 3.0 pretty soon so we can at least have 30Mbit/s connectivity. His connection speed: Read […]

I love Firefox
Good to see that the folks at Mozilla have made great strides to make Firefox a fantastic browser when it comes to memory management. It used to be that Firefox was a nasty memory pig. Firefox 3 Memory Benchmarks and Comparison
My first HDR image.
I have been fascinated by HDR images I’ve seen over there years, and I’ve always wanted to try to create some myself. This one, I took with my handy-dandy Canon SD1000. I just used exposure compensation by putting the camera in manual mode and mapping the print button to the exposure controls. I took (5) […]
Writeup of Flock 2 at ArsTechnica
Hands on: Flock 2 steps up the social browser game I always respect the folks at ArsTechnica, so I figured I’d share this nice article on Flock 2. They mention that it’s still in Beta, and there are always issues with Bets, but, like the author of the article, I’m seriously considering using Flock 2 […]
Firefox 3 is Out, and here’s a great guide about it.
Firefox 3: Power User’s Guide to Firefox 3 It seems that lifehacker.com puts out some great information. I ran across this on my iGoogle.com page a few minutes ago.

From the sounds of this phone and its 2.0 OS, I’d have to consider getting a phone like this. It’s thinner, has a black plastic back (no more shiny metal), and is 2.8x faster than its […]
Not only was Ben awesome with his 5 fish outing, he also took it upon himself to flip his visor!!! The kid’s got style…what can I say? The rest of the photos are here.
Apple — of all companies, to use dirty HTML to resize images!
I always find it funny that on http://store.apple.com, the image that says “We’ll be back soon”, when they are making changes to their store, is being resized via HTML and not natively the right size, so it always looks “dirty”… Right click that image and choose to “View Image”, and you’ll see how it’s SUPPOSED […]
On the way back from my new daily walk, a guy got off the bus with a bag over his shoulder and a huge suitcase. He looked like he was from out of town, and he even mentioned “he wasn’t from around here.” I found it kind of odd, his urgency to find a Catholic […]
