My Impression Of Windows 10

I hate Windows (if my previous posts didn’t hint at this, now you know).  Windows 8 was a nightmare and I never used Windows 7.  Recently I have succumb to the truth that I need Windows for writing code in C#.  There simply isn’t a better IDE than Visual Studio Ultimate.  Being a long time […]

Create Bootable Linux USB Drive with Mac OS X

While working on a MacBook Pro, I recently needed to create a bootable USB stick with Ubuntu Linux. The hard drive was not being detected under Disk Utility and I couldn’t reformat it.

Free Your PC | Switch To Linux

In my proffesion a lot of people come to me with issues regarding their PC (yes people use PCs still).  Most of their issues are based on the counter intuitive and limiting nature of Windows.  Let’s be real; Windows is a piece of shit and has been for a long time.  It gets slower and […]

Geeky Wi-Fi Hotspot Names

Whenever I’m out and about, I take every opportunity to find free wireless internet access. I’m more dependent than ever before on Wi-Fi calling when I travel to keep in touch. Often times, my phone will cut out in office buildings — and even perform poorly on the second floor of my house. In all […]
