“Rage Faces” are an internet meme. They tend to be very simplistic drawings conveying specific and straightforward emotions. The following comic is made using them and I can’t stop laughing at it.

I haven’t been on the blog much. These days, I spend so much time working on DogHouse Systems stuff or else at the gym (not to mention ~40 hours/wk with the Navy) that when I’m done with all that, not to mention getting some time in Tovah and Remmy, I don’t have the energy to [...]

For the non-technical: due to chip design and engineering tolerances a CPU can only run so fast before it sustains heat damage. Higher clock [...]
Yesterday I was lucky enough to be able to attend PAX Prime on the behalf of the Doghouse Systems Guys. I bought one of their excellent computers when they first launched and have become friends with John and Keith over the years. If you’ve never been to an event like this before it will stun [...]
On the 19th Portal 2 launches and boy am I excited. The first Portal was a game that received some of the best accolades and reviews in gaming history. It combined a wicked and sarcastic sense of humor with mind bending puzzles to create an incredible experience.
