You have so much snow in your driveway you’re thinking of putting it in the trunk, maybe stopping at your ma’s for some meatballs and gravy then dumping the snow somewhere upstate where it won’t be missed. You’re grumbling, you’re growling, feeling sorry for yourself.  Don’t lie, I see [...]

What To Do When Twitter Tanks

August 6th, 2009 by Kevin Murphy · 49 Comments

So Twitter is down, big time.  Last word is that they’re defending themselves against a “denial-of-service attack”  Not sure what that is, or if it involves orcs, but it sounds bad. And now Facebook is groaning under the strain of people needing to send each other brief messages and read those of others.
It’s mercurial, this [...]

What’s so Damn Funny?!

May 26th, 2009 by Kevin Murphy · 28 Comments

Jonathan Coulton is what’s so damn funny.  Paul and Storm are what’s so damn funny.  Put them together, on a Rifftrax Presents Super-Cool Special Riff of the iconic geekwork TRON, and the funny risks breaching its containment field and releasing a wave of hyperfunny that could threaten countless galaxies… with laughter.
Here’s a sample of what [...]

Fraud! Scandal! Shame!

March 15th, 2009 by Kevin Murphy · 75 Comments

By now you probably know about the discovery of a painting which is alleged to be the only portrait of William Shakespeare (Mel Gibson’s Hamlet, Romeo+Juliet, Shakespeare in Love) to have been finished while the Bard was alive.  Scientific tests have been run, X-rays have proven this, tree-ring dating that. Tweedy old English fellows have [...]

A Truckload of Respite, Anyone?

November 26th, 2008 by Kevin Murphy · 99 Comments

I’m preparing this weekend to see the latest Bond film, Quantum of Solace, at my local googleplex.*  And I’m a little concerned that I may not take away from it any measurable quantity of comfort which would aid me in a time of duress.  However, I’m certain that there are other Quantities of other Entities [...]
