Homemade Samoas Bars
Samoas (or Caramel Delights, as they're now called) are by far my favorite "Girl Scout Cookie". Now if only I were any good at baking, I could enjoy their taste year-round with this!

Connect to a Hidden WiFi Network with Android
I got a new 5th Gen Airport Extreme for Christmas and went about setting up my local network again.  I decided to run the wireless network as closed/hidden so that the SSID isn’t broadcast.  This worked fine for all my many devices except my Android …

OS X System Icons
Basically, this is just a note to self (since every time I want this info, I have to go hunt it down and it's hard to find) on where to find the default/internal system icons in OS X (10.6.8, currently): /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/

Ejecting a Stuck Disc in OS X
So, I popped an old burned-DVD disc into my MacMini today, but nothing happened.  The disc wasn’t mounted, DVD Player didn’t start up, nothing.  I’ve had similar things happen in the past and usually I can get the disc to eject either via iTunes or …

Tankadins in Cataclysm
If I didn’t know better, I’d think this was turning into a WoW blog. =)  Anyway, with the Cataclysm expansion releasing on Tuesday and thus all sorts of changes coming up, I figured doing a sort of summary post of links to useful resources would …

Return of the “Movies” Section
A long time ago, I used to have a “movies” section on this site where I kept a (manually updated) list of the movies and TV shows in my collection.  Not super useful to most visitors, I’ll admit, but I always found it nice to …

Plex Export
Stumbled upon this product to export a viewable version of my Plex library. I think I'll definitely be trying this out to bring back my old "Movies" section!

Holy Paladins and 4.0/Cataclysm
First, let me just state up front that I have no personal experience with this yet.  Holy has been my offspec for Teneral for quite a while, but I haven’t messed with it since the patch, though I’ll likely be rectifying that today.  Pre-patch, when …

Paladin Tanking in 4.0/Cataclysm
With 4.0.1 releasing tomorrow (er, later today), I thought it might be useful to post some info about Paladin tanking with all the changes.  Yes, there are changes.  Lots of changes - to basic core mechanics of what you’ve done for several years.  Thankfully, that’s …

Mac to Samsung TV via HDMI and “Mode Not Supported”
I’ve had a Mac Mini hooked up in my living room and being used as an HTPC for a while now.  However, as the Mac Mini doesn’t have HDMI-out, I wasn’t able to get it set up as I really wanted, which was to have …

Grid + Clique Setup
Yup, another WoW post, so fair warning up front! =)  This time, I’m planning to give some information on how to set up the Grid and Clique addons to use (primarily) for healing.  This is a common alternative to HealBot and I really like it …

Equinox Returns!
I previously wrote about our hero Equinox (Defender of the Horde!) back in 2007.  Basically, it’s sort of a graphic novel based in and created with WoW.  The author had taken an extended break, but I was very excited to learn recently that new stories …

Prot Paladin Raid Cooldown
Yes, it’s another WoW post. =)  Many protection spec paladins (i.e. tankadins) aren’t aware that a new damage reduction cooldown was added in the most recent patch (3.3), so I figured I’d help get the word out.  So, in patch 3.3, the Divine Guardian talent …
