    Stop right there. You know that copy of Photoshop you’ve got in your Torrent folder is not legal right? Most of the computer users out there think they need Photoshop. Not so much. While Adobe’s flagship product is undeniably amazing, many... More
  • Yeah, I Also Took Photos Of My Desk

    14 2
    So yeah, I also decided to take photos of my desk. But I cheated. Since I'm the resident photographer, I used big camera trickery to make it look cooler than it really is. I actually cleaned it to do this and Reiner missed out on the chance to take... More
  • I Need A Bigger PC Case (Or A More Logically Constructed Motherboard)

  • Cover Gallery: The Resurrection

    Cover Gallery is back up, courtesy of Jeff Akervik, who kept a copy of all the scans I made when he wanted to do a blog post on the Ugliest covers of all time. Otherwise, I would have to rescan covers of the first 90 issues. A half day's work on recoding... More
  • My First Few Hours Back in Final Fantasy VIII

    Sometimes things don't always go according to plan. I know I promised you guys I'd share my Final Fantasy VIII adventures sooner, but life's unpredictability got in the way. A lot of my travel was canceled and I ended up having some personal... More
