Review of China, IL “The Worst School in America”

The University of China, IL truly is the worst school in America. Babycakes (Why does my spell checker think that word is correctly spelled?)  surely says it best. I remember watching Babycake’s Journal Rants on YouTube, but that isn’t exactly the first way I discovered him. Remember SuperDeluxe? Not many people do. But this isn’t […] continue reading »

Windows 8 Developer Preview: “The Desktop”

However, the Desktop isn’t completely gone.  I feel it’s being very slowly fizzled out, but it still exists! Doesn’t this look familiar? Of course! It’s the same UI as Windows 7, with the exception of a different looking Windows logo on the bottom left.  That button takes you to the tile’s I showed you in […] continue reading »

Windows 8 Developer Preview: The “Start Menu”

Start Menu is in quotations because it’s received a complete redesign.  It appears to have been completely replaced with the new “tiles” (aka Metro UI).

You’ll go through this wave of settings (if you opt to do custom settings rather than the express settings) You’ll notice that the “Use Windows Error Reporting” is turned off by default.

Today it is

92 degrees outside.  How wonderful. I mean really.. earlier it was 88 heat index of 96. First I don’t get why they just don’t say it is 96 out.   Oh well. However.

Facebook: Browse Securely (for once) in HTTPS

Facebook recently released a feature that they should of had a long time ago. Most people don’t realize this, but when you browse Facebook, and even login to Facebook, all of your information is being sent in the clear. What’s this mean?

HP TouchSmart’s Great Grandfather, HP Touch 150.

Although I wasn’t around for this, it’s interesting to see what the first mainstream “Touch” computer looked like. Introducing, from the Computer Chronicles television show, the HP Touch 150 Computer, circa 1983.
