    The Mac Apps Thread: Useful tools for Macs/iPhone/Etc.

    It's been a while since we've had a Mac user powwow on, so I thought I'd see what fellow Mac peeps are using to get work done. Dragoman - by Creativebe For: OS X This app has been a godsend for me lately. It's a batch file converter, and while there are literally hundreds of these for...

    iPad: who got one?

    Well, I got up at 5 am and decided to take the plunge. I live across the street from an Apple store in NoVA, so I just rolled out of bed and went outside. Like other Apple launches, the line was a lot of fun. I met a bunch of fun people, a little geek camaraderie ensued, the usual. Anyway...

    American Politics, How to Become Apathetic

    I'm gonna rant for a little bit, and hope some decent discussion comes out of it. Pardon me. I've been a member here for a while, probably seven years now, and for those that know me I've definitely been a vocal one, for better or for worse. I've definitely calmed down over the past year or...

    DC Snopocalypse

    Is anyone other than wasabi and I feeling the hurt from this? Don't get me wrong, I love me some snow, but DC wasn't built to handle this much and everyone here freaks out at the first sign of slush on the road...let alone 20 inches.

    Google Chrome OS - Anybody interested?

    Google just finished their presentation on their forthcoming flavor or linux and it was pretty damned interesting. For those that didn't follow it, here are a few take aways: - All applications and data will be stored in "the cloud", i.e. at Google. - The file system is encrypted...

    The Skeptics Thread

    Thought it might be interesting to hear how many of us on these boards are of the Atheist, Agnostic, and Skeptic variety. Not trying to dole out flame bait, just curious. I "came out" as an atheist to a few of my friends at dinner a couple of months ago and was absolutely astounded at just how...

    Good Sci Fi

    So the gf and I have just finished Battlestar (I know I know) and are looking for movies and teevee shows that have a similar look and feel to them. A few great films I've seen lately: Sunshine: Just fantastic The Hidden: Cheesy as hell, but it has brain slugs Event Horizon: Just caught it...

    Windows 7: Thoughts, Tips, Etc.

    Searched around and couldn't find anything of substance on the issue, so I thought I'd get a conversation started since it's been so long. Anyone playing around with it? Any thoughts? I've been virtualizing 7 and have installed it on a Boot Camp partition as well, though that does some...

    FS/T: Like New Wii w/ No More Heroes and Strongbad

    Hey all. So I've used this Wii a total of maybe 4 times and I'm not impressed. I'd like to get rid of the Wii (late model w/ silicone Wiimote sleeve), No More Heroes, and 3rd party component cables for about $280 + shipping. I'm really looking to trade for some cool stuff though, so here's my...

    The Electoral College Map

    Dunno if this deserves its own thread as it's less about policy than strategy, but this year the electoral college is really really interesting as far as possibilities go. So, here is a link to CNN's electoral map. It's actually a pretty decent tool for parsing possibilities. Using this tool...

    Anyone picking up the Android Phone next month?

    The G1 looks pretty interesting, I'm gonna see if I can snag one unlocked and play around with it next month. Assuming the development will work as promised...there should be an unlock app available pretty soon through the Android Marketplace. I'd love to see how it holds up against my beloved 3G.

    Feedback on new blog

    Hey guys, it's been a while. Last year I started a political blog with wasabi and Bobak helping out, and while it was a lot of fun it was pretty cumbersome to maintain and fairly limiting in what I could actually do. So fast forward, I truly miss blogging, and have begun working on a new site...

    Veep Picks - McCain and Obama

    I figure this has nothing to do with the primaries, and thus may warrant its own thread. I'll leave that to the mods. Now that the race on the Democratic side is over, and now that both the RNC and DNC are sharpening their respective sticks for the general, who could have a chance at the least...

    Apple Store Fair Oaks, VA - Come Check it Out!

    For the past few months it's been an absolutely insane run-on sentence, but I'm finally opening my new store! After making a clean break from a soulless K-Street job working on the wrong side of the aisle to, of all things, Apple retail management...I can now officially say we're opening this...
