'Viking's Journey - The Road to Valhalla' Review - A Well-Oiled Broken Machine

Announcements: Selling Out Again… with Puppet Labs!

Several years back, I confessed to selling out. But there was a catch: instead of running those rubbish Google ads, we would run hand-picked ads from relevant tech companies. This worked out wonderfully and, as many of you commented, you first heard about some really cool tools and services, here on the site. Show More Summary

The Nelson diaspora

This will be our first winter in California. I won’t miss New Hampshire’s snow and ice. But I’ll sure miss our regular Friday night gatherings with friends in Keene.

The War Nerd: “Martyrdom” — What’s the Payoff?

If you’re an American, you don’t like the whole idea of “martyrs” much. The first quote you’re likely to think of is George Patton’s great line rejecting the whole idea of martyrdom in war: “No son of a bitch ever won a war by dying for his country.
