My wife's book is now available on Amazon:

In 1992, nine-year-old Katie Beers was kidnapped by a family friend and locked in an underground box for 17 days. Katie has now come forward to tell the story that created a national media storm as reporters uncovered the truth about her pre-kidnapping life of neglect and sexual abuse and the details of her rescue. She shares how this experience and the recent death of her kidnapper, John Esposito, has affected her life. Despite the horrible reality of Katie's days of being chained in darkness, the kidnapping was, in fact, the climactic end of a tragic childhood and the beginning of a new life.

Katie has been traveling around the country the past two years keynote speaking at various child advocacy and victim events, motivational and inspirational speaking venues, and of course various media outlets.

My wife's book, Buried Memories, is a NYT Bestseller. This is the new and updated version that includes new chapters such as life after Buried Memories.

For those that do not know, part of the reason for the new book is sadly because the original book publisher completely screwed her and I over, stealing thousands of dollars from us (essentially victimizing a victim, awesome huh?). The book has been released with a reputable publisher and we couldn't be happier with the change.

Thank you so much for the share and the kind words +Virginia Poltrack. Katie and I appreciate it :)
So I really struggled with how to word this post. Let me start by linking to this book-

I met +Katie Beers​​ before I knew about this book, about her story. I liked her immediately, and in fact, just thought she was a GREAT person. The kind of friend that when you meet them for the first time, you walk away thinking to yourself, "I really adore that person, I'm so happy to have met them!"

Then I learned a bit about this story, and ordered the book. And I was floored. To say she is an amazing person and survivor is an understatement. Basically, I was completely blown away and have a new found respect for someone I already held in really high regard. Katie, thank you for sharing this. You're amazing, and deserve every happiness. I'm really proud to call you a friend 💗

This Super Troopers 2 trailer looks hilariously amazing.

I can't wait to see this.

I remember when they had a Kickstarter a couple years ago for this. I should have backed it. But at the time, I had already backed a few others.

Here's a sneak preview of Google's secret, but not so secret, yet still unannounced new OS running on the Pixelbook. As you can see, it's coming along nicely, but still probably a very long way away from being released in any fashion. That said, it's still pretty damn cool and I'm excited.

#NotAndroid but may replace #Android?

YouTube is demonetizing channels with less than 1,000 subscribers. DOH. Can I get a subscribe at That would be great!

YouTube’s new rules state that creators must now accrue 4,000 hours of watch time over the course of 12 months and reach 1,000 subscribers to join YouTube’s Partner Program and qualify for monetization. This is a big change from the company’s previous rules put in place last year that allowed any channel with 10,000 views to apply for the Partner Program.

It's probably not a good idea to have your password Sticky-Noted to your monitor. It's probably not a good idea to have your password Sticky-Noted to your monitor on a critical system. IT'S PROBABLY NOT A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE YOUR PASSWORD STICKY-NOTED TO YOUR MONITOR DURING AN INTERVIEW PHOTO.
