Lost Until 2009

So that’s it, folks. The end of the fourth season of Lost. Two more to go. Seven long months to wait. This wasn’t the mind-bender of an episode that was last season’s finale, but it sure was entertaining. The fight between Kemmee and Sayid was one of the best one-on-one action sequences I’ve seen in … Read more

My Computer Gave Me Dysentery

My rudimentary understanding of how computers work is that they’re composed of millions of little on and off switches, 0s and 1s, yes and no answers. These silica-based components are simple and slow on their own, but put together in the right way, they allow computers to make calculations far faster than our human brains … Read more

Before I dwell on the negative, I just want to say that American … Read more

These little acts make people take their eyes off the road just long enough to get in an accident. Many modern … Read more

My Greatest Joy

What’s better than getting an Amazon Kindle? Being given an Amazon Kindle. That’s right, someone gave me a Kindle last week. After using it for a few days, I’m convinced that this is quite a remarkable device (not that I was in doubt before…but it’s different when you actually get to hold it and use … Read more
