New podcast list

I’ve talked before about listening to HowStuffWorks poodcasts, including Stuff You Missed in History Class, and Stuff They Don’t Want You to Know.  I hadn’t been listening to much other than the Missed in History podcast, because I started listening from the beginning.  I think I got to the end of November 2017, before I […]

This year, my middle child and only daughter took a STEM class. In this class, she did various things, including take pictures and work on the yearbook. At the end of the year, the members of the class had to do a project. The project she chose was to program an M-Bot. One of her […]

Now this is too cool

http://mentalfloss.com/article/86016/6-math-concepts-explained-knitting-and-crochet So, someone figured out that you can use needework to explain both simple and complicated math.

Shopping around

At some point very soon, I’m going to have to wipe the hard drive on my laptop and reinstall Windows.  The main problem is, I bought it used from work and got the key for this copy of Vista since it came with the computer, but I don’t think I have an installation disc for […]

WYSIWYG or Not as the Case May Be

When I first started designing websites, I found editors that were referred to as WYSIWYG or What You See is What You Get.  For some reason, this phrase resonates with a few things I was listening to tonight when trying to get the boy to sleep.  One of these days, my 3 yo will sleep […]

SOPA – The Bad Idea That Would NOT Die

The Internet Archive and Donations

There are so many places looking for donations, it’s hard to choose just one.  Not only that, money seems to be tighter for a lot of people this year.   But if you’re looking for somewhere to donate, Archive.org is looking for donations.  They have increased the amount of information and websites that you can pull up through […]

Bundling – As in Software Bundling

So it’s obviously no secret that pretty much any download site bundles software with other programs.  For example, you might install a program and be asked if you also want to install Google toolbar.  Of course, it’ll also hijack your home page and default search page, but that’s another story.  With all the additions attached […]
