Turns Out, I’m A CD Collector

A couple of years ago, I bought a turntable and rediscovered a love of music. The vinyl medium made me sit and listen to an entire record, in a way I hadn’t done since I was in high school. This was the reason, along with realizing how much money I’d spent on


No, I Don’t Need “Meternity Leave”

Last week, Meghann Foye wrote a post for the New York Post website declaring her desire for “Meternity Leave.” Which is apparently a “vacation” to “find yourself” just like new moms get! As a childfree woman, Foye’s article makes me furious. First, Foye argues that only women need “meternity.” Which is incredibly


Art and ADHD

One of the frustrating things about ADHD is how much your symptoms can vary day-to-day. Your brain processes inputs differently than most people, and the way it handles changes in routine is different too (or at least I feel like it is). It can be hard to keep yourself balanced. The most


App Review: Telegram

Chatting with friends online has started to become a bit of a pain. There are so many platforms, many of which are device exclusive. If they work with Android, they won’t work with iOS. If they work on mobile, they won’t work on the desktop. I’ve always ended up feeding Facebook all


I’ve Been: 3D Printing All The Things

A 3D printer is one of those gadgets I’ve wanted for a while, but haven’t been able to justify. But the prices have kept going down, and I kept finding cool little widgets, and finally pulled the trigger when I saw Monoprice has a $350 version (affiliate link). And since then I’ve


Book Review: The Fold

I feel I’ve said it time and time again when I write a science fiction book review, but I am so happy to be reading something that doesn’t take place in a dystopian society. Don’t get me wrong, I love those stories. But so much of sci-fi is that anymore, that something


I Fracking Love My Chromebook

Guys, I fracking love my Chromebook. When I bought my phone, I knew I wasn’t planning on getting another tablet. My phone is big enough to fit most my tablet use cases at this point, and tablets are expensive. I still wanted a “couch device,” and had planned on buying a new


iOrange-E Cable/Adapter Mega Review

I’m not usually one to go for expensive cables. As long as it meets spec, and has a decent connector, I’m pretty happy. But that’s the trick with USB-C right now. It’s new, and there are a lot of cables flooding the market that are not actually made to spec. It was


Review: The Internet Ruined My Life

After reading (and reviewing) So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed, I’ve continued to be interested in the topic of public shaming.  I was happy to see that others were interested in the topic as well, and that Syfy was actually creating a series called The Internet Ruined My Life.  Unfortunately, in trying to


Nerd Cave v1.5: Why You Should Always Measure

It’s been just under two years since I unveiled the Nerd Cave version 1.0. And while I’ve made several little decor changes since then, I still have one big project to really push it over to version 2.0. But, in the meantime, I thought I’d show you a little side project that
