The Loss of A Subscriber; You’re More Important Than You Realize.

I lost one of my subscribers a few days ago. Although I never met the man but I always appreciated his willingness to read my posts and to remain a subscriber. I feel bad that I didn't know more about him. It's obvious that we could have been friends or he would have...

The New Chair, An Engineer’s Journey In Buying A New Chair

Last week the bracket securing the arm of my gaming/ current office chair broke.  I’ll admit I’ve put on a few pounds during my Covid isolation and I never intended it to sub as a full-time office chair. Still, I haven’t gained that much weight and the chair was less...

How To Drive Customers Away, Why I’m Done With Netgear

Over the years I've used a number of Netgear modems, routers and switchers but this weekend I received what will be my last Netgear product. It's a simple Wi-Fi range extender and probably works well but Netgear's attempt at customer retention is not acceptable....

  • Toolbars, Software Trojans or Actual Benefit?Toolbars, Software Trojans or Actual Benefit?
    Every year people spend millions of dollars on software that prevents other people from installing undesired programs on their computer. We’re constantly reminded that’s it far better to pay for software rather than download a pirated copy and risk installing a whole bunch of surprises. When the software is free, and there’s a lot of […]
  • A Caution On Considering An Engineer As a CompanionA Caution On Considering An Engineer As a Companion
    Like many other bloggers, I check my logs frequently. I love seeing what articles people find interesting, what search terms they used to find me, and of course, did they find me interesting enough to read another post. I have two posts that always make me feel concern for the people reading them. When I […]

    It’s Saturday night as I listen to my new Prusa MK3S and wonder how I can justify my purchase of a third 3D printer to my wife. After two years, my Prusa MK2 was getting a bit long in the tooth. My prints were no longer a thing of beauty. Where I used to have […]

  • Pepper, Someone Else’s ProblemPepper, Someone Else’s Problem
    I’m mad and worse I find myself exceedingly frustrated because I can’t express the full depth of my anger. All my life has been suppressing anger in favor of calm rational analysis. No, I don’t pretend to be Spock but I do believe anger can distract from the message. Wanting this post to be written […]
  • Journalism?Journalism?
    I’m a little busy this week trying to finish my Udacity course and even though it doesn’t matter, I still want to get a good grade. With that in mind, I asked a friend to contribute and he was happy to help out. ___________________ The exposure and allure of journalism has drawn many people to […]

  • Amazon vs Hachette, A Consumer’s ViewAmazon vs Hachette, A Consumer’s View
    In the current argument between Amazon and Hachette, I’m not qualified to discuss the finer details of price points and author royalties. What I can discuss is my opinion and my response as a consumer. I don’t expect anything I say to influence Hachette. I think they see e-books as a threat to their existence […]
  • The Plan, How My Wife Became a GamerThe Plan, How My Wife Became a Gamer
    If you read my About section, you will see my comment about being the envy of Gamers everywhere by having a wife who games. This is very true. There’s nothing like having spent the last two hours painfully making your way to the boss mob, only to have your raid leader say, “Sorry, wife aggro” […]

    I absolutely hate the Fourth of July. Don’t get me wrong, I’m proud to be an American and the Fourth of July used to be my favorite holiday but living in the country has caused a major shift in my perspective. When I was younger and living in the city, the Fourth of July was my […]

    This week had a number of coincidences. After telling you that my wife is like a magnet for nails, she ended up with another nail in her tire and right after I published my latest post on my 3D printer, my printer died. My wife felt it was a very …

    I just finished exercising my political rights by voting against all the candidates so far from my own political views that I had no choice but to vote for their opposition. Looking back on my experience, I realize every vote I made was for the lessor evil. I did my …

    I bought the UP! Mini 3D printer from Amazon for $599. I found the sale price too good to pass up. Having had it for almost 48 hours, I don’t have buyer’s remorse but I might do more looking if I had it to do over. While this post is …
