iPod Touch on the way…

So I received an e-mail from Apple saying that my 16 GB iPod Touch was on its way shipped via Fedex. Looks like it’s coming direct from the manufacturing plant in Kunshan, China (Live Local Map). Wonder when it will show up…

XKCD & Insomnia… How did they know?

So for those of you that have never read the comics over at XKCD, a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language, then you’re in for a real treat…

so I have minor issues sleeping at night, primarily because I tend to work long days and then come home and think and then realize that I need to go to the gym, and end up getting home around 11, the endorphins pumping and I can’t get to sleep.  And then I start having times like this comic that XKCD posted on their blag 🙂

So my question is… how did they know that my clock goes to 13:72?

To go to Berlin or not to…

So 19 years ago, about this time of the year, I moved from Wurzburg, West Germany to Springfield, Virginia, USA.  19 years later, I look toward a concert on November 3rd at the Postbahnhof in Berlin, Germany.  Checking airfares, it would cost about $600 in addition to getting an expedited passport and a new digital camera to take with me while I’ve over there that’s a bit smaller than my current camera, and maybe a new WorldPhone Blackberry so that I’d be on GSM while over there so as to still be reachable.

Okay, so maybe I’m just thinking it would be fun for the gadgets, but at the same time, it would be out of character of the Geek…

What to do….

Time to Live

After several months of self-introspection I think it’s time to step out on a limb and live a little.  So starting on September 3, you’re going to probably notice a different Geek in this world.  One where he’s willing to risk things, and live out life the way it was meant to be lived.

Stay tuned for the life of the Geek, hearing his stories of accomplishment and failure, his heart gripping tales that will warm your hear and bring a tear to your cheek, his concert recaps, his adventures around the world and of course what would there be without some review of beers of the world 🙂

It’s time this world got a taste of the Geek, and this Geek a taste of the world.  It’s time to be unbound.  No more living without risk or living in fear,  it’s time to live.
