  • The Top 100 Women of History

    I heard one of the local radio station’s morning crew talking this morning about the women who changed the world and decided it might be interesting to see what some thinkers online came up with for their top 10 or top 100. The first list I found was this ThoughtCo. list of the top 100 […]

  • Blender 2.79b

    When last I was active blahgging, I mentioned an update to Blender had been released recently. Since that time, a lot has happened in the world of 3D modeling. I have tried to learn how to use Blender, buying and viewing video tutorial courses, books, and spending time reading the documentation. I still can’t create […]

  • Finding My Voice Again

    I started the Blahg as a way to share things that I found interesting. For a while, I was really, really, active in maintaining it, spending less time with family or my job than I should have. I took time to setup posts days in advance so the site continued to receive new content when I […]

  • Understandable standards for system and components

    I love this Tech Report article on setting standards for computer systems and components, but don’t have any idea how we could make this reality. Discrete or integrated, nobody knows what graphics solution to choose anymore. No, I’m not talking about people like you and me who actually read hardware reviews. I’m talking about the […]

  • Good news – we’re safe in 2040!

  • Skyrim best mods?

    I’ve started playing Skyrim again. The kids love it. I love it. It’s just a really well-crafted game. So now I’m looking over the newest Steam Workshop mods available for Skyrim. There have been loads of good community add-ons done since I stopped playing a few months. Anyone have recommendations of the best game enhancements? […]

  • Settlers of Catan gameboard Kickstarter

    If you are a gamer familiar with the Settlers of Catan boardgame, I think you might be interested in this gameboard management kickstarter which allows you to keep all the game pieces better organized. The picture to the left shows a close-up of the board pieces plugged together during play.

  • Blogging burnout, returning a Blahg

    Three and a half years ago, I posted a picture of the awesome and beautiful Alyson Hannigan then quietly disappeared into nothingness. I was burnt out on blogging. More specifically, I was burnt out on the deafening silence from the audience. When I started my Blah, Blah, Blahg, I did so as a way to […]

  • Conservatives respond to DHS report on “right wing extremists”

    Very interesting video compilation of various conservative commentators on the report issued by the Department of Homeland Security earlier this month regarding risks of right wing extremists: What is particularly interesting is the last 10-15 seconds of the report.  This is the part almost no one seems to be reporting when expressing their false outrage […]
