Windows 8 review

Testing Windows 8 has led to some interesting results.
I have been using MS Windows 8 on my work laptop for about 2 months now. Prior to testing I had read many reviews and had a somewhat biased opinion against it. For the sake of ope… http://hstuff.net/blog/windows-8-review/

My Browser Goes to Eleven

I have been using the Opera web browser for over a year. It has many features that I like in a browser. If I recall correctly, it was the first browser to start using tabs, grouping tabs, a minimal bar, private browsing and speed dial. In other words, it …

The Cloud

DropBox, Mozy, Carbonite, the cloud vs SpiderOak. What does Spider Oak have that the other guys don't have? User side encryption as well as true cross platform GUI's.
There is a large movement by companies like Apple, MS, Google, DropBox etc, etc to push users to move their files to "the cloud". They claim that this is an excellent idea; you ca… http://hstuff.net/blog/the-cloud/

Web hosting

I have had my own website for some time, since '95, which was probably before most people even knew what a website was.I did have help from others of my ilk who had already been having a blast with html. I started as a college freshman because my univers…

Uhaul vs Penske

A few years ago when we moved from MT to NM we rented a large Uhaul moving truck. When we moved a few months ago from NM we used a large Penske truck. Both were the largest of the respective fleets. The Uhaul truck feels like it has a larger packing v…

2010 Suburban 1500 Review

We rented a 2010 Suburban 1500 after our accident. We needed to be able to haul our entire family as well as the room for a little traveling. This was the best vehicle available from the local rental agency.   It was a great vehicle and even fun to dri…

XP and Red Hat

I am a GNU/Linux fan and have been for about 7 years. My home computers sport Suse 11.3 and Win 7. My work computers, on the other hand, have other things in mind. I use Red Hat 5.5 and XP. Many things have changed since I became a GNU/Linux fan. Some th…

Soda Springs

I recently had opportunity to do some work in Soda Springs, ID. I had not previously been there and found it a nice small town. The name comes from the fact that there are many springs in the area that are carbonated, like soda water. The Oregon trail pas…

Ford Excursion

I just finished driving an '04 Ford Excursion over 2000 miles. I think I got to know the big suv in that time. I will start with the things I do not like about the '04 Excursion, note that these may have changes on future models. Unlike most vehicles I h…

Ender

I just finished Ender's Game. The story pulled me in from the first few lines. I don't typically read much science fiction. But this does not feel like science fiction. Some years ago my friend Jeff VanShaar told me about the Ender's series, and how in th…

Nissan Sentra Review

I recently got to drive a Nissan Sentra. I must say that I was impressed in several ways. First, WOW it has the largest glove box (or Jockey box as my wife says) that I have ever seen in a car. That aside, it had plenty of power to speed up and pass othe…

Independence Day 2010

On the day that we celelbrate our freedom and independence from British control, we happened to be in eastern Utah and made a dash for the wasatch front (aka Provo-SLC-Ogden). About 5 miles east of Duchesne we had a blow out. IT was a back tire so no loss…

Atlas Shrugged finished

I finished Atlas Shrugged today. I am listening to it as an audio book and it was over 52 hours long. I think it was worth the time. The story of Dagny Taggart is compelling. Years ago I read Fountain Head, also by Ayn Rand, which at the time I thought wa…

Concrete5 vs ModX

I have made a switch to using Concrete5 instead of ModX as the content management behind this website. First, I have no affiliation (nor stock) with either, so my opinion is not pulled one way or the other from pressures unseen to you. I found that the dr…
