The Multimedia Remote Control Wrangler lets you velcro remote controls to your head. You'll never lose a remove again as long as you don't lose your head. As you can see from the photo above, you can even control the Nintendo Wii with your mind... or at least your head. (via)... Continue reading

AdSense-Deluxe WordPress Plugin

February 10, 2007 at 09:51 PM

Once installed you simply set up a few different AdSense blocks with differnt ad units or styles and then when writing a post you simply select which one of those blocks to put in a...

Vista and Cisco VPN don't play nice

February 03, 2007 at 05:00 PM

Picked up a new Vista-powered laptop this week (replacement to one Best Buy/Geek Squad messed up) for the wife. Pretty much just needed to surf the web, do a little image editing, and HTML/CSS dev, and other pretty basic stuff. The only thing she really needs it for is to access her work computer so she can work from home. Of course we quickly got hit with one of the biggest perils of early... Continue reading

February 02, 2007 at 04:52 PM

Former University of Texas student Colton Pitonyak was convicted Tuesday of the murder of Jennifer Cave and sentenced to 55 years in jail. Despite shooting, mutilating, and dismembering Cave's body and then attempting to run to Mexico with his accomplice, Pitonyak and his attorneys tried to claim the murder was an accident. Shockingly, Pitonyak will only have to serve about 20 years before becoming eligible for parole. The fact that he could be walking... Continue reading

Don't Answer Calls From 514-958-0000

February 02, 2007 at 08:39 AM

Another telephone scam, this time reportedly from Express Consolidation out of Canada. Someone repeatedly called my cell phone, 3 or 4 times in a ten minute span, from an "Unknown" number and after not answering any of those calls the next two came from 514-958-0000. Same thing happened on three separate occasions this week while I was at work. I didn't answer any of these unsolicited calls and you shouldn't either. No reputable businesses... Continue reading

My Texas Longhorns sports site, BevoSports.com, has won the Brady Quinn Award. What is the Brady Quinn Award you ask? It's an award for the best looking college football blog in the whole entire world. We felt honored just to be nominated, so winning is definitely a cool thing. I just hope people don't consider us as over-rated as Brady Quinn and Notre Dame. That would suck. So thanks to everyone out there who... Continue reading
