My Petition to Be Allowed to Enter the Byte Cellar

Ultimate Man Cave

Byte Cellar


Dear Mister Blake Patterson,

Will you please consider opening up the “Byte Cellar” – which some people have dubbed the ultimate man cave – to a tenant?1 I promise not to be a slob. I promise to keep liquids a foot away – at least – from your wonderful machines. I promise to be so quiet you won’t even know I am there.

I also swear that I will not change any settings on any machine. I will not even rearrange the icons on your desktop(s).

I simply want to bask in the pleasure that your museum-like man cave will surely give. I want to see with my own eyes and touch (with supervision, if it pleases you) those machines that I have only ever read about.

Please, Mr. Patterson?

Yours truly,
The Digital Hobo

P.S. I am a reasonably good cook, and I clean up after myself.

  1. Although I have my misgivings about the use of “man cave” as opposed to [whatever] cave, I am not a feminist. I am female though, so I’d rather change the label just so I can be allowed to enter. []

Shoot ‘em Lamps

Shoot em Lamps
Sometimes, you just feel like shooting things. Of course, with gun control and everything, you just have to settle with shooting things on the PlayStation 3. Or whatever you use to play games. Now here’s something that might just help you blow off steam while having fun and doing something useful: shooting at lamps to turn them on and off. The thing is, you’ll probably have to spend quite some money to change busted lightbulbs.

See the lamps in action at VidAddict.

The Hunger Games Nail Polish Line

Hunger Games Nail Polish Colors


Apparently, I missed the initial rumors that a nail polish line was going to be released for The Hunger Games. Thanks to Fashionably Geek, I just about caught the update – that the Hunger Games Nail Polish Line is really coming out.1 Unsurprisingly, legal issues are to blame for the talk about the whole thing being a hoax.

If I had come across the Hunger Games Nail Polish Line a year or so ago, I probably couldn’t have cared less. I have to admit that I am rather curious as to how the colors would look in real life – Smoke and Ashes and Riveting are particularly interesting.

Any Hunger Games readers out there? How do you take this marketing move?

Oh yeah, we’ll have to wait till March next year for the release.

LEGO Diamond Ring = Geeky Girl’s Best Friend?

LEGO Diamond Ring

LEGO Engagement Ring


They say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, although I really would have to disagree with that. Then again, as I have been told one time too many, I always point out the exception to the rule. In any case, if you are a girl and you like diamonds, then you will probably have something to say about this LEGO Diamond Ring. Continue reading
