A New Blog in Town.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 10:36 pm

As many of you know, I don’t do power tools, particularly those with chains or those with sharp-toothed blades. As you also know, I am easily intimidated by computers and electronic gadgets. As such, a while back when I bought this fancy schmancy computer and all the gizmos and software that came with it, I stared helplessly at the multiple boxes until my buddy Mike the Computer Maven came to the House by the Parkway and spent the day hooking everything up and moving the stuff from my old computer to the new one. There is simply no way I could have done it.

A while later the computer developed a problem and had to be sent to HP for repair work. In the process of doing the repair work, HP wiped my hard disc. Double yikes! Mike spent a shitload of time getting that all squared away for me.

Mike is most definitely a geek’s geek and a gadget guy’s gadget guy (He actually reads and understands the stuff on Slashdot.), and he’s gotten around to starting a blog. Although he is writing about various things, the posts seem to be weighted a bit in the direction geekery and gadgetry, but they are written with non-geeks in mind.

Mike’s a good guy, and the name of the blog is “Lost in the Details.” Give it a look. I figure if I send enough traffic Mike’s way, he may show me how to operate my DVR.


  1. I don’t FEEL like a Maven! Heck, most days I’m happy I get to work in one piece.

    Thanks for the link and post, Jim!

    And yes, now I’ll help with your DVR at the other house by the Parkway 😉

  2. Mike is anything but a geek. Imagine a former football player, who can sing very well and do systems and electronics! A maven indeed but a well rounded one. Also, a good friend to have!

  3. Is a machine gun considered a power tool? Do you have one at the other house? If not, get one while you can.


    Seriously, every house should have a machine gun.
