Taking over from a failure of an IT company

September 7th, 2016

Taking on a new client is a fairly normal occurrence most of the time. It usually goes decently smooth, getting domain and hardware passwords transferred over, sharing knowledge collected over time, making notes of any gotchya’s or unique issues with a client. Every once in a while though taking over a client leads to a […]

Why isn’t everyone doing 2-factor Auth?

October 18th, 2015

Seriously, it is 2015 now.  Every big service provider should be supporting some form of 2-factor authentication.  Google is a prime example of the right way to implement this, and everyone should be following their lead.  This weekend I had an email account I hadn’t used in over a year get its password cracked.  The […]

Android Lollipop Bullshit

January 26th, 2015

Android 5.0 Lollipop came out back in mid November 2014.  So, it has been out a couple months as of the writing of this.  There are a lot of really annoying bugs in Lollipop like caller ID pictures just refusing to show up, silent mode completely broken, horrible navigation icons, and lock screen no longer […]

Defeat the SJ-R’s Paywall with Chrome in 4 seconds

February 7th, 2013

Print is dead.  You hear me SJ-R? Central Illinois’ newspaper – The State Journal Register – was bought up by media conglomerate GateHouse Media back in 2006.  Since then the paper has been on a wildly out of control downward spiral.

How Gyft Stole My Personal Information

December 19th, 2012

I’m going to start off this article by warning people, DO NOT SIGN UP FOR GYFT!  Do NOT install it on your phone!  Why?  Because they will steal your information and you can’t do anything to stop it.  Gyft is an app that is supposed to allow you to easily trade/exchange gift cards to stores […]

Why can’t Winamp stay on top?!

February 19th, 2012

Seriously, this pisses me off to no end.  Winamp has had this problem for years.  I have the option set:   After a couple songs:   I love Winamp as an audio player, I really do.  But it drives me crazy when I go to pause the music or skip to the next track, and […]

Nokia must be on something good

February 11th, 2011

Earlier this week, Nokia’s CEO came out and admitted something had to drastically change at Nokia, or they would basically be done… “We poured gasoline on our own burning platform. I believe we have lacked accountability and leadership to align and direct the company through these disruptive times. We had a series of misses. We […]

What happened to Linkin Park?

October 11th, 2010

Seriously.  What happened? Linkin Park has 2 absolutely amazing albums with Hybrid Theory and Meteora.  Not a dull song in the group, original music, awesome fast pace rhythms, and totally bad as solos.  Then what?  We got some remixes with Jay Z (which weren’t bad, just nothing new really), then we were handed the shit […]
