  • Why Are Modern Browsers Such Memory Hogs? A Short Primer on Processes, DLL's, and Threads

    I normally don't like to participate in the so called "browser wars" and that is not the intention of this post. But, I feel that the title poses a legitimate question: What is going on with modern browsers sucking down memory like tequila shots these days? As a web developer, I have a...

  • On Microsoft and Backwards Compatibility: Windows 8 (and How to Make it More Usable)

    Note; If you don't feel like reading this entire post, at least read this: Start8 from Stardock Corp (30 day free trial, 5 bucks after that, and well worth it IMO): Get your start button back, disable hotspots, and boot directly to the desktop with that utility. Otherwise, read on. This post is not...

  • Are Personal Websites/Blogs Passé?

    I have a love/hate relationship with my personal website/blog. When I started this site almost 9 years ago, social networking wasn’t even in the vocabulary of the internet, and personal branding was a must have. Fast forward to 2012, and Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn are ubiquitous, and Tumblr is a...

  • So That's How The eSata Drives Generate Revenue Money

    My new eSata drive arrived today...Newegg was having a special, so I got 320 gigs for 80 bucks. You can't beat that, save for one thing: It didn't come with an eSata cable. Price of said cable? 20 bucks , and it has to be ordered seeing as no one in a brick and mortar around here carries them...

  • Pownce: Quite A Disappointment (And Other Thoughts)

    Pownce was recently launched (I'm here for anyone wanting to 'friend' me, though I don't see myself being too active in the near future, plus good luck getting the site to actually come up) as a so-called ' Twitter killer'...I'll sum the Pownce experience up in a nutshell...

  • This Could Only Happen In North Carolina

    A while back, the story about inhaleable alcohol broke over the internet (I can't find the specific link, but this was announced several years ago in 2004). Fast forward to today, and there's an article floating around stating the machines have been banned in my home state of North Carolina ...

  • What If You Built A Browser, But No One Used It?

    Through my daily reading of tech news, I came across this dandy: Netscape Navigator 9 Beta released . Wait a second, you mean to tell me that Netscape A) even still exists and B) is still releasing new versions of Navigator? Until reading that headline today, Netscape had ceased to exist in my mind....

  • Well That Turned Out To Be A Nightmare

    Twenty days since my last post...in the 3+ years I've been running this blog I don't think I've ever gone that long. Hopefully the two of you that read this site haven't jumped ship quite yet. Regardless... The job that I was so incredibly stoked about turned out to be quite the nightmare, and thus my...

  • ApplicationSettingsBase.[Insert Event Name Here] Discrepancy

    Microsoft has done a good job when it comes to event naming within the BCL by following a common naming pattern: the gerund form of the verb is used during the act of doing something (i.e. Form.Closing), whereas the past tense is used after the act has completed (ala Form.Closed). They've also done a...

  • Waiting For The Crash

    [update]I forgot to mention this is on Windows XP x64.[/update] I'm still experiencing some random hangs on my rebuilt machine every couple of hours or so and have finally decided to get off my lazy rear end and track down why it's happening. I'm 90% sure it's related to my sound card driver, but of...
