Sweet frustration…

So, how was everyone’s Christmas? Good? Good. Mine was wonderful thanks. Made a nice change to have more than one day off of work at a time. I also discovered the beauties of uTorrent over those two days and thus my music collection has been expanding exponentially ever since. Woot.

I randomly came across a few articles on what I think is a guy’s blog. I started reading them thinking they were slightly parodical but as I got further into them it turns out that they’re actually both frighteningly accurate as they apply to me. Now, I’d rather call myself a geek than a nerd, but it’s quite a fine line these days, so I’ll let it slide. Check them both out. And please actually do read them rather than just clicking on the link and scanning.

A Nerd in a Cave

So what did we think? Comments welcome, as usual.

Now, on the comment front, I need some help. As previously mentioned, I’ve recently started using uTorrent, and I’m already running out of ideas for music I can download. Anyone have any suggestions of bands or artists I can sample? If you’re reading this there’s a fair chance you already know what kind of music I like, so I’ll leave the recommendations in your hands.

Nothing else to write about now. See you soon.

All in all…

I have stumbled across a few webcomics and blogs that amuse me. Not quite enough to put on my blogroll or sites of note lists, but enough to link to, so, here they are. Enjoy.

MonkeyFluids

Wondermark

DM of the Rings which is an off-shoot from Twenty Sided. Very geeky, be warned. Hi, nice to meet you.

Not a Planet Anymore, which is a blog about speculative fiction of most/all kinds. Fairly interesting if that’s your kind of thing.

L33T G33K is a blog of all things techy and generally geeky, but has some very interesting and entertaining articles in it, so check it out. Life imitates xkcd, for instance, and this one might be highly useful and functional.

Blogoscoped is actually a blog and forum about all things Google, and since I love Google, here you go.

I think that’s all for now. I may return with more at a later date.
