Confessions of a tech scavenger

The 50-inch TV in my basement is top of the line. The best that Hitachi had to offer in 1996. It was 12 years old when I found it next to the dumpster behind an audio/video store. The colors didn't line up right any more, but a visit to a friend who fixes such TVs and about $150 later, it works great.

The Great Movember Shave Off

When I heard about the Dad 2.0-led team of bloggers growing mustaches in November to raise awareness of, and funds for, men's health, I figured it was a good excuse to try something different and help out at the same time.
I don't have a lot of free time lately to help others as much as I would like, but I can grow facial hair (Though apparently not very fast.).
