Happy Halloween

Have a Happy Halloween everyone. You know, this holiday has become an excuse for women to dress in exotic and skimpy outfits. But who am I to complain? Rock on and stay safe!

Heroes Getting Boring?

Is is just me or is Heroes getting a little dull? Maybe it’s the commercials that are bugging me because I hate waiting through commercials. With all the new characters, each episode jumps all over the place and it feels really disjointed. I understand they’re trying to advance the story of each character in parallel but it doesn’t work. Even though it’s all over the place, oddly it still feels like the overall plot is moving pretty slow.

This is an Aside

I’ve created a new category called Asides which is for random thoughts or other things that I feel like mentioning that’ll usually be very short and not worth an entire blog post about. This is the first aside and an example.

ViaTalk is Okay, Not That Good

So a couple months ago, I switched my phone service to ViaTalk from SunRocket. ViaTalk so far has worked okay but their customer support is exceedingly poor. It’s my understanding that they received a huge influx of customers fleeing SunRocket which overloaded their support staff. But even now, support response times take weeks and months. I’m not kidding. I’m a light support user generally, but they took forever answering my support tickets, which were not complicated issues at all.

New PC Build

So I received all the parts for my new PC about a week ago but I didn’t have to time to put it all together. Today I went apple picking, but then I literally spent the entire evening lapping my heatsink (Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme). Not the best way to spend my Saturday night but I’ll only have the free time to build my PC on weekends and I HAVE to put it together now to make sure everything’s working and that I don’t need to return anything. Then I can send in the UPC labels for rebates.
