Being sick is … sickening

Irene (my wife) started coming down with a cold/flu thing on Christmas Eve. Naturally, I started getting sick on Boxing day. And now I have a roaring great cold.

You know, the usual…feverish (peaked at 101.2), sore throat, headache, stuffy. This one is generating a great hacking cough, so stuff is settling in my […]

MTU, Linksys, and Linux Connection failures

I warn you in advance that the following post describes a situation that does not make technical sense to me. But its the truth, and so I figured “hey, this is a geek website, and maybe some of the people visiting here are geeks, so maybe they’ll appreciate the absurdity”.


One to One NAT and Telus

I mentioned in my previous blog entry the fun I was having getting my new Firewall/Router (LinkSys RV016) working properly. My original plan was to set up my web server behind the RV016 and use one to one network address translation (NAT) and firewall rules to manage access.


Network config problems: Linksys RV016, One to One NAT, and apache

I have to apologize for the site problems today. I’ve been installing a new network firewall/hub, and encountering any number of irritating problems along the way.

Right at the moment I can’t get any of my virtual hosts to work. If you expected to go to the Dawn of Asgard or Solstice sites and […]

Teresa Noreen in the running for Maxim

Folks who visit my site regularly know that I have been following the career of Teresa Noreen for some months now. Just type “Teresa” in my search box here and you’ll see a half dozen or so postings about the Geek Goddess. She’s a busy woman, as the postings in her Myspace blog can attest […]

New-old content up on site…D&D, EverQuest Essays

I finally got around to finishing what I started back in July and now all my old articles are available.

If you look to the right under “Other Content”, you’ll see the Essays and Articles link. Click that and you’ll be looking at a menu of my longer written stuff. Feel free to burrow […]

Merry Christmas

Its Christmas Day here, and I’m just starting to wake up on my second cup of coffee. Maybe by the third or fourth cup I’ll be truly in the spirit of the season 🙂 Irene is “bah humbug”ing because she has come down with a cold, and I’m complacent in the knowledge that I […]

Coming Soon: Google AdSense

Well, I’ve resisted for quite a while, but I’ve decided to add Google AdSense to my site.

What will this mean? If you are familiar with AdSense, what I’ll be doing is setting things up so that Google will place some relevant links on my page. “Relevant” is based on Google’s analysis of the […]

F.E.A.R demo

I downloaded the demo for F.E.A.R. today. Talk about totally smashing any hope of getting into the Christmas spirit! The demo is impressive: if the rest of the game is as good as this preview, the game as a whole must be as good as Halflife 2. Assuming you liked Halflife 2, and if […]

Christmas season…

I’m feeling reasonably “jolly” this Christmas season, but for some reason I’m not feeling very “christmassy”. I tried to go out and do some Christmas shopping, but I just couldn’t overcome a sense of comfortable lethargy…I think I’ll have to take Irene out after Christmas on a shopping spree or something, as I’ve only […]
