    I apologize for the non-.NET post, but it's about Fry's... a geek's heaven. Today I decided to see what all this fuss about Fry's is.

    In prepartion for my move to Redmond next week, I placed an order last week at PC Richard's for a new TV set.

  • Blog Post: USB LCD for your PC

    Ok, I'm thinking to myself... "How cool would it be to have one of the 4 line, blue and white LCDs ( CFA634-TMC-KU) for my server?"
