GLaDOS Bakes a Cake

Being the person in the family that bakes is fun, except on my birthday. Then I have to decide if I am going to bake my own cake or if I am going to save the time and mess and buy one. I have until Wednesday to decide. Perhaps, I will just listen to GLaDOS […]

2010 Census

The Rochester household received our 2010 Census form last week. In true geek fashion, we were excited to add out numbers to the count. Numbers are thrilling to my engineering husband and I like participating in the research aspect of it. Looking over the form, though, brought to mind this classic Christopher Walken SNL skit. […]

Things I Learned From My High School Band Director

You jocks may seek to argue with me, but the class that taught me the most in high school was not Geometry, Chemistry, or even English (though that was my first love). The thing that taught me the most, the things I remember and use even now, was band and it was mostly due to […]

Net Neutrality Needs a Cooler Name

I have been listening to TWiT, The Week in Tech podcast, for a little while now and I really like the banter on the show. I am a couple weeks behind, but show 219 had a great discussion of net neutrality. The transcript is available, but here are my two favorite quotes: Jason Calacanis: But […]

I Broke Up With Windows

I have an Alienware laptop that I love. I mean I really love this laptop. Her name is Inara (not Vera, sorry, Jayne!) I think geeks feel about their computers the way some people feel about cars. Seriously, Mr. Rochester just built a computer, which we dubbed Nightcrawler (we have decided to go with an […]

Waiting

Waiting for Mr. Rochester to get home so we can watch Castle. Nathan Fillion is supposed to be wearing The Coat. The Browncoat. The actual coat on this week’s episode of Castle. Castle, btw, is a lovely show that you should be watching. Not only do you get enjoy Fillion on screen, but the jaunty […]

You know you are a geek when…

You have a serious debate with your husband over what order is the proper viewing order for Star Wars when it is time to introduce them to your children. Do you go with the traditional viewing, Episodes 4,5,6,1,2,3? Do you show them chronology and run the risk of the special effects of the newer ones […]

Friday Bits

I have realized that I put a lot of things on Twitter that I used to post in random posts here. I do not want to make all my tweets come here (how annoying is that all the time?), but I think I should try to put more of the random here for you, the […]

UFO Translations

While searching the Internets for founts of information Saturday, Mr. Rochester and I were perplexed by Google’s logo which featured a UFO abducting one of the Os. Apparently, we were not the only ones confused, as there was no text explaining the graphic. Google, changed the logo in an homage to the classic game that […]

DASH Puzzle Hunt

Some of my good friends are helping to organize the DASH Puzzle Hunt in Houston, TX on September 13th. If you have always wanted to do a puzzle hunt, there is no time like the present. DASH will be simultaneously occurring in Boston, MA; Washington, DC; Houston, TX; Los Angeles, CA; Palo Alto, CA; San […]
