Slow Internet Troubleshooting

I’m reposting this from my “Intermediate Internet Troubleshooting” article as I think the subject deserves a post of its own. You’ll need to know what speed internet you are paying for before this article will be of any use at all to you. Some Terminology Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) will sell service based on download… Continue reading Slow Internet Troubleshooting

Random Ramblings

I hope everyone had a good Christmas weekend. For me having Christmas on the weekends usually makes things easier around here. Those that work in normal non-mail sorting jobs have almost a week off and generally hang about here. That’s usually pretty nice. It was a lot more relaxed then it has been in the past.… Continue reading Random Ramblings

Fortunately it works very well but I decided that comma delimited files are too primitive for configuration settings and take too much code to work with or to add on to. So I’m converting to XML.

Geek Argument Wars

The other day I started a thread on the Wizards of the Coast Message boards looking for more melee weapons for my d20 Future/BESM d20 campaign. I got some really cool replies but at some point it degraded into an “Average Damage” argument. It seems pretty silly to me because I’m not 100% sure what… Continue reading Geek Argument Wars


I consider myself a geek, and my geekhood is something I’m very proud of. I’ve recently been calling myself a ‘geek lord’ because of the level of geekiness I have attained over the past several years. I think my credentials speak for themselves, I play D&D every weekend, computer technician, obsessed with video games, write… Continue reading Geekness
