Huh. I always wondered if I was actually saving money as well as time. Now I know. Moral: buy your pre-roasted birds at Costco or Smart and Final.

Rotisserie chickens are delicious, ready-to-eat, and don't cost any more than an uncooked chicken. Is that combination too good to be true?

Oh joy... I get to buy a new router today. The current one flat out REFUSES to connect to the Chromecast, even the new one I bought last night. That router has never been right from day 1, so no love loss at all.

Well, the new router confirms that it was the old one starting to die. The old Chromecast connected right up on the 2.4 band, but I took your advice and put everything on the 5.0 band and that meant a new Chromecast. Aw shucks, had to buy one! Thanks for the advice!

So... today I'd like to give a shout out to the folks over at Muchery.com. Sorry, but no, this is not a good shout out. This is a "you're scum" shout out. You send me a flyer in the snail mail and draw my interest, then, when I go to your website and want to see a menu, you REQUIRE me to provide an email address? Excuse me, but no, I will not participate in your blatant email harvesting. Flyer thrown away, and you can rest assured that I will tell people how I feel about your company.

Since the annual celebration of our breaking away from England and becoming an independent nation is approaching, some flag rules are in order.

Ham is now a full-fat fabric that can provide Internet access. Why aren't you using it?

Ah yes... a mainstay of my childhood. Good to know that it still lives on.

One day a Cuban illustrator walked unannounced into the MAD Magazine offices, and the rest is history.

Ok, I didn't expect this, but upgrading to 802.11ac made a difference in my connections! New router is easy to set up and manage, too. Hard to beat that.

Dear Google Maps,

When someone searches for both endpoints of Route 66, wouldn't make sense to highlight that route instead of directing them towards the interstates that gave the mother road its demise? FAIL.

Wow... a problem with the WoW chat engine. I have to admit, this took some thinking to create, but it is so devious. Of course, it does involve some social engineering (aka: gullibility) but then again, don't they all?

A few days ago, a new type of gold/item scam made the rounds. Usually scamming in MMORPGs is done using social engineering techniques, e.g. an attacker sells a fake item code for alleged in-game items like mounts to a potential victim for in-game currency. But this most recent kind of attack...
