Wizard World Indianapolis 2015

This past weekend, Indianapolis’s first Wizard World Comic Con rolled in town. Geeks and geeky lovebirds alike celebrated Valentines weekend at the Indiana Convention Center with celebrity panels, meet and greets, and browsing the vendor booths.

Your fandom is not a competition.

Claire’s Top 5 Things on the Internet: Packing Procrastination Edition

I’ve been packing my house for weeks. I swear I don’t think we have that much stuff for three people, but the boxes in my living room beg to differ. In the name of packing procrastination, I give you the top five awesome things on the internet that have been distracting me


You Should Be Using Dual Factor Authentication

Another day, another high profile social media attack, this time it’s the US Central Command Twitter and YouTube pages. Hacking these sorts of pages isn’t particularly hard, you already have one piece of information (the login or username). We haven’t heard about what tools these hackers may have used, it could have
