Those “In Network” Medical Insurance Discounts

Friday, February 6th, 2015

During a recent trip to the doc I was given a short list of tests the doc wanted. I was told I could just wander anytime into lab at the regional hospital where the doc’s office is, no appointment necessary! Sounds convenient, no?

And it’s being reported by USA Today, not Fox News… seems the veil is slipping…

Redskins

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

I don’t watch football, not a Redskins fan and I generally loath the NFL… But I have had this strange itch to buy a Redskins branded something just to put a thumb in the eye of political correctness. Fortunately the Redskins players made it easy to shake that itch

I’m Despicable! Oh, and immoral, and unethical. Algore has spoken.

Watchout for GSATA

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

So I have been slowing building up this nice 8 core system and have had no end of trouble getting it to boot some Linux distributions and specifically 64bit Linux of the Fedora and Mandriva varieties. Live disks would throw all kinds of errors and eventually dump to a commandline instead off X Windows. I […]
