BestBuy order goes wrong

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

I just ordered a few things from BestBuy.  Now here's where this actually might be interesting to you... BestBuy shipped to an old address of mine instead of my current address.  The order was placed on a Saturday, I realized the incorrect address was used (though I thought I removed ...

Windows Vista Time

Sunday, July 29th, 2007

It's time for an upgrade.. this upgrade will be for Windows Vista Business. Currently the company I work for is running Windows XP all around, which is fine, but the time has come for something newer and better (and there seems like no better time to get extra licenses, just ...

Poker Players Haven’t Faced Deep Blue

New Aquarium Time

Sunday, July 8th, 2007

I use to have a fish tank/aquarium.  It was approximately 135 gallons and housed a relatively small amount of fish and sea life.  Of course it was a salt water tank, or a reef tank.  The tank was made out of glass, and that's where I start my search for ...

iPhone Cracked

Friday, July 6th, 2007
