The 11 WORST Gifts

If you are still concerned about getting the right gift for the geek in your life, I have included a list of things not to get. Read the list carefully, and remember do not get them something that doesn't use electricity.

11. Coupon for a year of free computer service
10. Fruitcake
9. A box of floppies
8. A dozen red roses
7. An exercise video, diet books, and/or a membership to a diet program
6. A copy of Windows 3.x For Dummies (this goes for any self help books)
5. ie51setup.exe
4. Sony BMG CD with Root Kit (this comes with Sony BMG’s posted "fix" that makes matters worse)
3. A year's supply of Diet Caffeine-free Mountain Dew
2. An AOL membership
1. A mouse pad with a picture of you

My Blogging Sabbatical: More work and some time with the family

Yes, I have been remiss in posting to my blog. I missed commenting on two favorite subjects of recent importance--the introduction of the XBox 360 and Black Friday shopping, but all for a good reason...I have been up to my *ahem* neck in work opportunities and, at the same time, trying to spend some quality time with my loving family.

As my blogs slowed down (more like stopped), it was interesting to hear the feedback from my readers (something I did not think I had many of). People where asking me to get back in front of the computer and put some words back on the blog.

Well, I am back! Look for more posts as we enter the new year.
