Repairing the Melcor 390 Calculator Part 1 – An Exercise In Patience

So, after many many delays, I got the Melcor 390 calculator fixed. Oh, it was an absolute joy to get done soldering the capacitor in and finally seeing the LED’s fire up with “EEE1” and other garbage data, as this little calculator does when it’s first powered up. If you don’t know what I’m talking …

We Return To Your Regularly Scheduled Programming

Oh, hi! It’s been a little while, hasn’t it? Yeah, it has – About 4 or 5 days that I just decided to go do something else for a while? Why? Well, the opportunity came up, so I decided “let’s do it!” Some time away with minimal network connectivity. Yeah, I could well have written …

Only In Memphis – The “Vegan Cafe Baby Butthole” Story

I seriously wish I was joking about this one. I really do. Yes, this is a serious article, and one that has been delayed by something like 3 weeks now, mostly thanks to the MLGW Hoax earlier in the month; I never did write about this while it was fresh, and by the time I …

A Blogging Backlog

Anyone who attempt at least some kind of regular content creation has certainly run into the issue of simply having too much to publish, and running into a backlog. Hell, I’ve had to just abandon some planned posts thanks to them running so far behind that I just never bothered to actually write and publish …

Twitter Reacts To The MLGW Zach Randolph Hoax

I discussed earlier today the absolute stupidity of an event that happened here in Memphis where people actually thought that Grizzlies player Zach Randolph was paying off people’s MLGW utility bills if they paid on the convenience store kiosk’s today , something that you would think no one would treat seriously, but, in typical Memphis …

An MLGW Payment Kiosk Error Spawns A Bill Payment Hoax

I’m still trying to get all the details on this one, but I think I have enough to be able to write about this accurately enough, so let’s get to it: It would seem today that, for whatever reason, an error in the bill payment kiosk’s for Memphis Light, Gas, and Water (MLGW) would “not …

Skipping The Convention

So, right now, an event I used to go to every year, Anime Blues Con, is happening here in Memphis. It’s, as the name suggests, and anime convention, and it’s been in previous years something I’ve looked forward to since learning about it in early 2011 – I would first attend the convention in 2012 …

Enjoy The Silence

A week ago, there were somewhere around 4 posts a day, as a side effect of E3 going on. Now, a week later, it’s been far more quiet. The reason behind it is quite simple: I’ve been taking some time for myself, trying to enjoy gaming, and just relax. E3 proved this year to be, …

The Articles That Triberr Missed – The GIF Format And Some E3 Coverage

So, shortly after my last articles on the subject. Triberr decided to push one of the missing articles up: I figured it would throw the other article up there as well, but it never did – not only that, thanks to the 14 article import per week limit, and me not knowing exactly where I …

An Update On XadaraCast

So, you may recall that Podcast I was working on late last year, titled XadaraCast (yeah, not the most original name, sure). Well, as it stands, I’ve taken down the only 3 episodes that were produced and am putting the project on Hiatus, for now, for a general reboot. The reasons are varied, but it …
