Ship a Day – 2 Jan 2017 AKA 8 Jan 2017

So a ship a day MIGHT have been a bit ambitious, and I MIGHT have built more detail than I needed for a concept, and I also MIGHT have ripped off a Lorin Wood design, but I’m pretty happy with how this turned out. A solid design that could be industrial, scientific, or, if you […]

Ship a Day – 1 Jan, 2017

I assigned myself a little challenge, to design a spaceship a day in January. I tend to take a lot of time to finish a design, mainly because I end up getting stuck on some detail and then never finishing. (I came up with my Bison redesign three years ago, and its still not done). […]

Star Trek’s 50th

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but just never got around to it. Like a lot of nerds, I wasn’t sold on the shape of the Discovery, mainly because it seemed kind of lazy to me, and didn’t seem to fit into the ship design established by Enterprise. I have to admit, […]

[$CRIME] is More Important than Security

Now we have a second crypto-fascist state politician promoting themselves and their pet cause over everyone’s privacy and security.

Well, if that’s the case, ASM Cooper, why not just introduce a bill to put a full surveillance suite […]

No More Smart Things, Please

This may just be me getting into the old man yells at cloud phase of my life, but if there’s one thing I don’t need in my house, it’s an internet-connected “smart fridge.” It’s bad enough that pretty much every every smart TV or IoT thing either has shit security or straight-up spies on you, now Samsung […]

New 15″ MacBook Pros at WWDC?

According to the rumor mill, that is. God, I hope not; I’ve been holding my breath for the Skylake 15s to land in early 2016, I really don’t want to keep hanging on to my 2011 MBP for that long. If that rumor’s true, and let’s face it, with Intel’s track records of late, it […]

Starting Over

Welp, I done fucked up. It was mostly when I changed my website password and apparently managed to not update the entry in 1Password. Dur. But then there was the minor detail that I hadn’t installed the fucker correctly in the first place and couldn’t complete a password reset. FML. (And no, I hadn’t done […]
