Wish I could quote you folks some new, hilarious, spam... but all the recent spam has been so polite! Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you've done a awesome job with … [Read more...]

So, what have we been up to lately?  We thought it might be a good idea to build a video card. Not buy a video card online, wait for it to arrive, and install it, mind you - but build an embedded video card for some of our headless Linux dev boards (and a couple PogoPlugs - which are ~$15 nowadays).  Follow along, if you're so inclined, at … [Read more...]

Yes, another fun spam comment! of course like your web-site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to tell the truth then again I will surely come again again. I'm sorry my poor spelling bothered your truth telling - but I'm glad you'll come … [Read more...]

No hilarious spammer emails or comments to share with you this week - I think the public forum really scared them off (right?).  So, I guess I'll just say: happy weekend. Links We Liked! Conor Sen points out on his Tumblr that, if you zoom out a bit, America is quite exceptional - even with all the folks saying otherwise.  We agree … [Read more...]

The spam, folks, it gets funnier and funnier! Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read? ... on a three year … [Read more...]

Let's get to the links quickly! (Really, is there a blog out there that gets fewer comments per visitor?  It's like you want to inflate our ego with page views, but don't want to talk to us.  We don't know what to think about this.  Well, dude, let's go bowling.) Links We Liked Nelson at Financial Uproar points out a young Warren Buffett … [Read more...]

Oh, soccer (America's sixth favorite sport!). For a game that I enjoyed so thoroughly growing up, you try your hardest to alienate me with the flopping and acting aspect of the game.  I value a good match more than a good flop (The US already has the best actors in the world in Hollywood). Also of note, we've updated the data on your two … [Read more...]

A whole week in the books, and three articles in a row which didn't even have a whiff of finance about them.  (Go ahead, you make the argument that fitness and finance are related, I suppose we'll allow it.) We do appreciate (probably) being the first finance blog to make Hackaday, though.  Maybe we'll improve our project at some point? Links … [Read more...]

8.5 More Pounds in 16 More Days – End of Another Diet Run!

Yeah, I'm using hyperbole in the title again to make you click; tricked you! 'Real', non-water weight loss this time was 4.6 lbs if you count from the end of where I left you with the last diet log.  Again, we used a modified version of Lyle McDonald's Rapid Fat Loss diet - modified to be less hardcore, for various reasons. Diet in … [Read more...]

What's up with the spam comments lately?  Previously, most spam in my pending comments was gushing with ebullient comments about the quality of the information on this site.  Now I'm seeing a hilarious, backhanded turn: I do agree with all the ideas you have introduced in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, … [Read more...]
