About to go scout some basketball teams (with help from +Erica Chester) ahead of our own game today. Yes, scouting-this is serious stuff, folks! Last week those efforts paid off as our boys came ready to play and swarmed their opponent en route to a blowout, with the opposing coach getting booted from the game. Today? Hopefully they bring that same intensity.

The assignments never stop coming (and I'm thankful for that), but today is an exhale kind of day. Gonna catch a movie, and my breath.

Bum luck that schools closed (due to weather) on the same day as basketball practice. I had planned to teach the kids how to break the full court press, but will have to settle for a quick run through before our second game of the season this Saturday.

Quick run through on how to break a full court press? Good luck!

After some deep self-reflection, I've concluded people do in fact change. Case in point, I scoffed at the smartwatch movement until recently (and suddenly) deciding I had to have an Apple Watch. I have no explanation for my flip flop, but +Tammy Scheel made it happen for Christmas.

When I was a kid, or it was all about waking up early to see what Santa brought. And now? It's the Christmas Eve seafood extravaganza culminating in baked stuffed lobster, preceded by king and colossal crab legs, mussels in red sauce, various shrimp dishes, scallops, and other delights. Bloated freezers forebode the inevitable chorus of "Ugh, I ate too much."

Following up on my previous five-way mechanical keyboard roundup, I take a look at four more models for +HotHardware.
In this round-up, HotHardware takes an in depth look at four mechanical gaming keyboards from ASUS, G.Skill, Aorus, and Logitech.

Our first time playing together and we dominated the court, winning all three games, the first by a score of 12-0 (playing to 11). Not bad for a youngster (my nephew Chase Smith) and an old dude with two torn up knees in need of surgery. Ah, feels good to be a YMCA member again.

So the youth basketball team I'm coaching with My nephew entered a holiday tournament that a local church hosts every year. We made it to the championship and lost to an older, bigger team. The kids gave it a gritty effort; I couldn't be more proud of this group. It's going to be a fun season (starts next Saturday). More updates on the Celtics (you didn't expect us to be called anything else, did you?) to follow!

Hope everyone had a merry Christmas! I made out like a bandit, now it's time to catch up on sleep before the work week starts anew.

You know it's a Christmas Eve marathon seafood feast when an adult conks out on the floor before the main course. And that was just one of three casualties before the night was through!

Introduction
Freelance technology journalist spending the bulk of my time contributing news and analysis to Maximum PC, Maximum Tech, and HotHardware. I've also contributed material to Techbargains, Mac|Life, PC Gamer, and PC World.

I recently found a bit of closure on a 15-year relationship (I'm of course talking about playing all the way through Duke Nukem Forever). When not sitting behind my PC, you'll likely find me on the basketball court dropping dimes and raining threes, or spectating any Boston sports team.
