Review: Warzone 3

It’s been a while since I found some new games to play, but rummaging around, I’ve come across Java Gameplay. They’ve got a series of nice games in the “Nice to kill a half hour” variety. What’s nice is they’ve kept older versions of the games online so you can see the sort of evolutionRead More

Moving into the next age of geekery.

For quite a while I’ve been wanting to move into some of the more widely used methods for writing and deploying large-scale apps, particularly in Java.

A Pleasant Car Dealer experience

How’s THAT for an unusual topic? I bought my VW Golf TDI from Bernardi VW about 2 years ago, and I’ve been pretty pleased with the service and support they’ve been giving me.

I’ve always thought that voice acting is something I can do well, and would have fun doing more of. So, why not put together aRead More

Morning Jumpstart music.

There are few tracks that can get someone going in the morning better than Vince Guaraldi’s “Linus and Lucy” (aka the Peanuts Theme Song). Few others bring on a serious case of office-chair-bopping. Thanks Radio Paradise.

This stunning discovery was made while reviewing pictures sent back from the probe during its passes overRead More
