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


The Problem With Google Bookmark Manager

A little over two weeks ago, I wrote a post about organizing your bookmarks. Google released Google Bookmark Manager last week. Of course they did. Once I find a system I like there’s a new one out. It seemed like a really interesting approach. It is a Google Chrome plugin, which usually

Dear Internet: Stop it.

I’m really starting to despise the internet. From complete refusal to see any other sides to misguided attempts to “educate” friends on topics they could not possibly know about (newsflash: They probably do. You look like a dick.), Facebook and comment blogs have become almost impossible for me to watch. It used


It’s OK to Disagree

You all (hopefully) saw Claire’s post on Thursday about disconnecting. And when you saw that, you probably thought of all the places Pure Geekery is on the web. One of our readers even made us a “clog all the pipes” meme. Well that’s mostly me. I am a big social networking fan.


Claire’s Top 5 Things on the Internet

I’m loving this 90 degree weather. Even though I grew up in the midwest, I’m a warm weather gal. Give me the Cali sun year round and I’d be happy. Windows open, Burn Notice reruns, and I have all I need to spend a day making paper orchids for wedding decor. After
