My haul from the Memorial Day sale!

It was the memorial day sale at Best Buy earlier this week, so I gotta coupla nice things: 1st, a new Honeywell tower fan! This is the Honeywell Quiet Set HYF290B Whole Room Fan, and it is REALLY good, I’ve never had anything so luxurious before. It’s much more stable than my old crappy fan, […]

The third time’s the charm–for the third time! Digital Storm has done it again! (Review of my Digital Storm Bolt III PC)

I’m quite a happy camper today, my friends. My new desktop PC came in today, and it seems to be working very well! As my previous two purchases were, this one was from Digital Storm, and I’m as pleased with my third DS machine as I was with the previous two. Let me give you […]

Annoyance with Hewlett-Packard

No writing log today, my friends–I didn’t get any work done on my fic at all this week! I have a good excuse, though: Things are looking up for my grad school career! I spent most of the past few days meeting with professors and talking about my proposed project with them, and it seems […]

Review of my New Laptop, the Digital Storm Lance

Day’s recent offering for the Space Review: Long story short: The thesis is that recent sci-fi movies, particularly <i>Gravity</i>, have portrayed space as a scary, dangerous place rather than full of opportunity. In the author’s view, they emphasize that humans should take care of […]


  Haha, I must apologize, my friends, for the picture in this post is a bit misleading. I won’t be talking about Cars, the main antagonist of the second part of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. Instead, I’ll be talking about literal cars—specifically, the new one I got earlier this week! At the beginning of this month […]

Review of my new computer, the Digital Storm Bolt

1: Personal Background Since reviews are meant to assist other potential buyers, I figure my readers would appreciate a little personal background on me, to get an impression of what sort of buyer is giving this (glowing) review of Digital Storm. While I play videogames quite a bit, I’m actually not a “hardcore” gamer, I […]

Quick Smartphone note (Samsung Galaxy s4)

Remember I mentioned a little while ago I got a Samsung Galaxy S4 recently? It’s been working well enough for me, but I just had my first problem with it today. I kept it plugged in last night while I was sleeping, but when I woke up and went to work I didn’t bother to […]
