  • Blog Post: BAH, What a Wasted Day

    Today’s been a tough one for me. To begin I was having issues with my normal laptop, a severely underpowered Sony VAIO that I’ve had for about three years.

  • Blog Post: Where is Matt Lauer?

    Chris Pendleton has the scoop that once again NBC likes to send Matt Lauer to the far flung corners on the planet with the latest installment of its, "Where in the World is Matt Lauer?" segment. I wonder how many frequent flyer miles he's earned in all those years of doing this segment? Microsoft is...
