ding ding

It’s finally official. New Jersey is going to raise the gas tax 23 cents a gallon. We’re gonna see it like, next week or something. I know a guy who used to say “BOHICA” on the radio about the state…

That Didn’t Last Long

11 days isn’t terrible, right? The volume of texts and emails and routed-through-wife contacts I got was impressive. I’m breaking all sorts of mental, internal rules anyway because I was going to post here weekly, and failing that too isn’t…

Home Network Hardware Recommendations

I have a lot of people ask me questions about what they should be buying to upgrade their home networks. It’s become something of a rote topic for me, so what better place to put it than here? This is primarily…

Trolling, but In Real Life

  It’s OK, honestly. It was only a spamcalling scam artist. I might be really weird, but I enjoy when we get the “Unknown Caller, Unknown Area” on the caller ID on the house line. Aimee rolls her eyes at…
