With their playoff position already secured, the #Celtics go and close out the regular season with a W over the Bucks. I. Love. This. Team!

Sad to see #Justified come to an end, but loved the series finale. Was a great modern western, and introduced the world to #Gangstagrass.

Wow, I haven't looked at mainstream desktops in a long time, but if you need a basic system for yourself or your folks, Woot is selling a refurb "Famous Maker Slimline Desktop" with an AMD A4-5000 quad-core APU, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 1TB hard drive, CD/DVD burner, USB 3.0 connectivity, 802.11n Wi-Fi, memory card reader, Windows 8 Professional, mouse, and keyboard for $179.
Can you figure out who this mystery desktop is?

Helluva deal for a basic rig. I can't help but think about putting the high end A10 apu in there and swapping the ram out for 16GB worth of 1866 DDR3 for a HTPC/light lighing room gaming.

Heading to Detroit to root on the #Celtics who are fighting for a playoff spot. Really need this win; I'll suit up if necessary!

Need to remove malware from a Windows PC? I posted a guide on Maximum PC on how to do this, with software recommendations. Special thanks to my folks for all the practice! :P

Time flies. The kids are mostly grown (17 to 21 years), but never too old for Easter baskets or coloring eggs with the 'rents. Hoppy Easter all!

Booya! I love being right, and I called this one long before there was talk of the Celtics sneaking into the playoffs. What their record doesn't show is (A) how exciting this team is to watch, and (B) how well they've played against top opponents, either by pulling off the upset or falling just shy of a W after outplaying them for most of the game, like dropping 38 points in the first quarter against the Warriors and leading by 26 (56-30) with 6:47 still left to play in the second quarter. With the stockpile of draft picks they've amassed over the next several years, playoff experience for these young cats will prove more valuable then adding a high first rounder to the pile. Go #Celtics!
With a little help from the Chicago Bulls, the Boston Celtics are headed back to the postseason.

I have it on real good authority that Sadie's got her new dress on. Also, try a dose of bluegrass in the AM. It's coffee for your ears.

Recently had a chance to fool with Syber's Vapor PC, as configured and assembled by CyberPower. Here's my evaluation, posted at +HotHardware.

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.
