Okay, okay, I think that is my longest gap between blog posts....man I just suck at this don't I?  With everything else going on in work and in my personal life, getting here to update this just keeps getting passed over.  I apologize to anyone that gives enough of a sh*t about this page for my lack of updates!!!


As you have probably already read, the new AMD platform known as AM2 was finally released on May 23.  I have coverage up of the

I am sitting here at the IDF keynotes this morning waiting for them to begin.  We have some decent Internet access this time around so I'll try to make some updates here in my blog when interesting news bits come out.  Read it here first!

Waiting for IDF and So Much More

To say I have been busy as of late would be a slight understatement.  I am in California for third time in three weeks today, getting ready for the spring 2006 IDF to begin tomorrow morning.  Actually I am going to an Intel mobile product showcase here in a little bit, but I think it's going to be stuff we already saw announced at CES.


This week will see the launch of not one, not two but four new GPUs from our friends in red and green.  Also, since the RD580 launch I have been doing some testing and investigate into all those benchmarks that ATI sent to the media abo

Well I did!  I recently was forced to manually edit some large Apache log files, one at nearly 2 GB and one around 750 MB in size.  I had to do a global find/replace on a date string, so after downloading the zipped files and opening them both up on my new Athlon X2 4800+ system, this is what I was greeted with:




Yep, that's two WordPad applications s

People keep yelling at me to update this, so here you go.


Okay, well maybe not really, but you really have to get some background on it before you'll agree.  If you haven't jumped on the Chuck Norris bandwagon as of late, then you really should check out this link and this link.  After laughing a bit at those quotes and trying not to tear up, have a look at these:

Well it's that time of the year again -- the annual Consumer Electronics Show is going live tomorrow morning in Las Vegas.  If you have watched the news at all, you've probably already seen some plugs and coverage of it on channels like CNN and CNBC.  I got here this morning and have been prepping for the event and already met up with a few of the industry reps to chit chat.  I'll have some cool news stories as they develop throughout the week.


One other thing I am going to try at this years show is to bring you all some HD video footage from the show floor.  Of

Holidays and Work Schedules

While the benefits of working from home and owning your own business are well known to those who don't share in this world of ours, sometimes the problems associated with working at home and/or owning your own business are not.  For example, are you eagerly awaiting a box of components to continue testing equipment with over the next four days so you can be ready for an article launch on the 27th?  Do you find yourself NEVER without your CRACKberry answering emails and trying to set up meeting times for an upcoming convention even while sitting at dinner with friends?  Maybe

Another Birthday Passes

This past Sunday was my birthday and I celebrated it by sitting in the freezing cold with my girlfiend and dad at the Cincinnati Bengals game and then coming home to nap and watch football the rest of the evening.  Is that what living is about?


I have an odd perspective on birthdays and holidays in that I generally don't get too worked up about them.  I am considered a "scrooge" through out most of my family and friends though I don't think I really that bad; just not 'peppy' like the others.  I do enjoy many parts of the holidays but much of the commercializatio
