Due to popular demand, I have posted a "beta" version (no images) of my Windows Me Super Tweaks Page. Some more things need to be added, but it is a start in the right direction.

Advertising has saturated everyone’s life, for the better or worse. The influx of media in everyday life has also spawned the explosion of advertising in places where I really do not desire to see them. As such, this domain has not and will not have obnoxious flash, gif or other ad types. Let me explain the evolution of this decision. READ MORE…

I have been intrigued by the Mortal Kombat series since the early 1990’s. Even though I am rather pathetic at fighting games of all types, the Krypt that is included with Mortal Kombat: DA intrigued me even more.

For all of my kind readers, a piece of advice: Scan your computer for viri. Funny thing is, I am starting to get more virus’s in my E-Mail daily than spam.

I became excited to find out that Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 was about to be released. I loved NFS3 and looked forward to an “upgraded” graphics engine. I became happy to discover that Need For Speed: HP2 did do a massive overhaul to, not only game play, but also the whole package. As with everything, though, there is a problem. I actually was going to do a Quick Rant on NFS: HP2 because I became extremely frustrated at every turn with the controller fiasco dealing with this product. [Continue Reading]
