tech world : a no-frills, off-kilter blog of mostly homegrown tips and optimizations.
There is something about the jagged asymmetry of this site that appeals. The posts drift from nuts and bolts Windows tinkering to connection speed to admittedly baffled blurbs on the dizzyingly complex world of blogging and online marketing and advertising.
This blogger appears most at home with the computer in front of him. There is facility and confidence over basic hacking matters that still baffle most and likely will for all time. But, when thrown into the dazzling sea that is Web 2.0, most of us are similarly tossed and flung by the crawling tides.
Some post examples:
- How To Save A Wet Cellphone [very useful]
- Convert Your Old Optical Mouse CCD Into A Scanner [ingenious]
- Modify Your CD-ROM To Watch DVD Movies [not sure if this works, but sounds tinker-cool]
The eremite howls with approval.
