It is now open season on everything you do online

So this has happened. Thank the “Gerbil-headed, woodstained, haunted spunktrumpet.” If you’re not making your online traffic anonymous already you should be, since they’ve just freed the ISPs from any privacy protection we had. I hadn’t enabled VPN on my home router yet … but you can bet I’ve done it now! Great resource at […]

Day of the Girl

Today is the international #DayoftheGirl and twitter is shining with the stars and politicos tweeting about it. Check it out at the link below:

Connected Riding and the Motorcycle Geek

Plush Serenity Makes the Verse Shiny

This is just a reminder to all my friends and family that my birthday is right around the corner. I’m just saying…                     More images after the break …

Why I love Maria Cantwell even though I’m not a Democrat

So I’m sure than anyone who reads me here knows that Net Neutrality is a subject near and dear to my heart … and that I think it should be near and dear to yours too.  I’ve signed lots of petitions, reached out to my state government, put a banner up on this very blog all […]

So Windows 9 is gonna be Windows 10 instead
