Alright everybody, I’ve never actually played it yet but I have been debating for a long time. It’s been getting cheaper and cheaper for a long time but now it’s finally free. Team Fortress 2.
This announcement comes as kind of funny to me because just the other day a couple friends were playing TF2 and telling me to get it because it was a measly $10. Well I guess I’m glad I waited, now I can pick it up for free and so can you.
Make sure you at least check it out. On their website they try to ease the nerves of people who have never played the game before and feel like there would be to much of a learning curve to try to start playing it now. I call this [...]
In the wake of my last blog post about picking the right blogging platform, I figured I should mention something about this. Yesterday morning, June 21st, WordPress released a statementsaying that several popular plugins had been compromised. These compromised plugins include AddThis, WPtouch, and W3 Total Cache.
I always seem to have passwords on my mind. What’s the best password? What’s the best way to create one? What are the best implementation policies? One question has been plaguing me more lately. Is it worth it to use a password manager? Password management programs like LastPass, KeePass and 1Password have been drawing my attention and I’ve been silently considering the pros and cons. Here now is my mind dump of information that I’ve accumulated through this research I’ve done.
I’ve had a number of people ask me, “What should I use to make my blog?” and “What’s the best blogging system?”. I’m just going to throw it out there right now, I haven’t tried all of them. I’ve played with a few but not all. I thought I would go through the ones that I have tried and point out their strengths and weaknesses as to maybe help someone pick which service they should subscribe to. Here is a quick summary of what I think of these blogging platforms.
For most of my posts, I’ve tried to be very informative and provide some sort of useful information. This post is going to be a little bit different. I’ve made an observation and I want your feedback. I want to know what you think.
At my place of work, we are upgrading all of the computers to have widescreen, 22 inch monitors. At first I thought this was a great idea. Who wouldn’t want a bigger, newer, widescreen monitor? Then I got to thinking. Why does everyone here need a widescreen monitor?
I thought I would write another quick post about passwords. I have already had two different conversations today about passwords. The idea of a password, what is right and wrong, how to implement them and what are the best policies to control them are not only interesting to me but a huge part of the world’s security. This is also a topic that is not going to be going away any time soon.
Alright, here is the heavily anticipated part II of my favorite apps of Android devices, specifically in part II, rooted devices. These apps will only work on devices that have been rooted. There are a lot of very good tutorials to help you root your device, Droid Life has an extensive archive of all the latest and greatest root news separated out by device. There are also many options like the one-click superuser option. Just find a tutorial that you can use and is easy to understand.
Congratulations! It might be a little bit early to celebrate but chances are you are about to finish another year of school or maybe even graduate. Either way there’s a good chance that you’ll be looking for a job or an internship for the summer. For a task like this, it is important to take advantage of every possible outlet. Enter: social networking.
With all this excitement over my new Nook and of course I have been using my Droid for a long time now it’s clear to at least me that I love my Android devices. I thought after this long with playing with all these toys I would write something quick to share what I think are my favorite and most necessary Android apps. I’m sure there’s a million of these post out everywhere by now but there’s got to be more room on the internet for just one more.
Well here it is, my brand spanking new Nook Color. And yes, that is the little Droid Guy on it. My Nook Color is running Android 2.2.1 also known as Froyo. To be a little more precise it happens to be a custom ROM called Nookie Froyo. So far, I’m very happy.
For some reason, the Nook is a very easy device to “hack”. As most people are quickly finding out, it is extremely simple to get your Nook Color running any version of Android. Right now, the most stable version of Android, Froyo, is not quite optimized for use on a tablet, so there are still a couple of bugs. Some things look a little funky while others just stop things working all together. Most of the Nook hacking [...]
