Say What?

Talking to my 3yr old son more often than not results in me staring at him in amazement. If the child were 5, he would posses an astounding vocabulary for his age. The fact that he has a vocabulary this wide at age 3 truly makes me wonder about him sometimes. On the way to […]

Stuck In A Gaming Rut

Playing video games is a great way to have some fun and kill some time. What happens when you shift that form of entertainment from a hobby to work? Over the past 5 years, I’ve been rushing through games all in the name of doing write-ups for Snackbar Games, and while I love both aspects […]

PHP, Programming

PHP Is a Bad Language for New Programmers

PHP is a very simple language to learn. It’s loose data types and plethora of examples on the web make the cost of entry to PHP development very low. It also empowers new programmers to venture out and get cracking on their own projects. I admire the efforts of these new programmers, but I also […]

San Antonio Pastor Expenses Personal Luxury Items

I’ve been going to church for as long as I can remember. Back in the day we would head for church every Sunday morning where my brother and I would curl up on the wood pews with baby blue fabric and take ourselves a nice 1 hour nap. As I got older, I got very […]

First Impressions: skate (X360)

I’m a big fan of skateboarding games for some reason. In High School I was an “aggressive rollerblader”, a term that I hate to this day. It just sounds so… gay. I mean, skateboard just kind of rolls off the tongue and “ag-gres-ive roll-er-blade-er” doesn’t. In fact, it kind of struggles to make it to […]


First Impressions: Call of Duty 4 (X360)

My brother let me borrow his copy of Call of Duty 4 to check out and I just played through the first 2 missions. Graphically, it’s very impressive and so realistic I felt like I was playing a movie. Gameplay wise though I felt like I was playing a squad based game like Ghost Recon […]

I’m Beginning To Hate VB

I’m primarily a web developer and currently spend most of my time with PHP and JavaScript. My roots go back to Unix C programming and a whole host of other languages including Perl. Making the move to Win32 development hasn’t been an easy one and it’s not a place that I want to stay for […]


So Just Who Does This Guy Work For?

I always find it funny when large companies use the same stock photos. This guy is showing up on right now as well as the Publisher front page for Yahoo’s ad service (sometimes, it’s a rotating photo).

Testing My Comments

Previously on this blog you had to register to post comments. This is not ideal. After combing through every setting and even the code that generates these pages I found nothing to show me how to flip the switch. I gave up and did it the dirty way and set the “comments_registration” option to 0 […]

Who Thinks Of These Things? Awesome Toy Ideas

Toy makers these days are full of wonderful ideas. I mean, who wouldn’t want their kids playing with toys coated in lead paint and little dots that are akin to your children poppin’ ruffies. Looking through a recent toy catalog, my wife and I saw one of the worst ideas for a children’s toy I’ve […]
