2 weeks ago I blogged about hitting the treadmill again, and yesterday I hit a milestone: Closing in on my 10 minute mile pace. Slowly. So slowly. A photo posted by Scott McNulty (@blankbaby) on Mar 24, 2015 at 6:16pm... Continue reading

You know what's cool? Posting a snarky comment on a 4 year old post. Also, that isn't my bank account number.

I love my TiVo (as I've said once or twice on this very blog). And I would seem Mr. Jason Snell is also loving his: My family and I watch many YouTube videos on the TiVo, and all of my... Continue reading

I couldn't resist them (get it?). And they were cast from the original molds used for the props on TNG, DS9, and Voyager. Marisa was disappointed that they don't beep when you tap them. I had to break it to... Continue reading

For some reason this tweet of mine from 8 years ago is making the rounds of a few folks on Twitter: seriously doubts there will be an Apple phone.— Scott McNulty (@blankbaby) January 7, 2007 I was totally wrong, and... Continue reading

If I had $1300 to waste (which I suppose I could spend on this, but I won't) and some reason for owning one I'd totally get this Wrath of Khan jacket. It is very slimming, as you can see in... Continue reading

Kindle Family Library is great. It allows you to share books across Kindle devices (e-ink and Fire only) between two linked accounts (Kirk has a great tutorial on how to set it up, and here’s list of devices on which... Continue reading

The Internet is an amazing thing. Today’s evidence of this: Larp Trek. I found out about this amazing comic from Carrie Anne, who will be appearing on a future episode of Random Trek. When she told me about it she... Continue reading

AppleWorld.Today launches, well, today. It is an effort from a few fine folks at the defunct TUAW (of which I was associated from a while there). I wish them all the best of luck! Here’s a fun fast: one of... Continue reading

I never really thought I’d be a writer. In fact, for a long time, I thought I was going to end up being a physicist. Fast forward to freshman year in college when I realized that calculus wasn’t for me... Continue reading

Since it is the holidays here in the good US of A (and elsewhere I presume, but I don't concern myself with the goings on outside of our fine borders) I thought it only appropriate to share some of the... Continue reading

I have a podcast called Random Trek in which I discuss a random episode of Star Trek with a non-random guest. It is a hoot. You should listen to it. You should also buy one of these nifty Random Trek... Continue reading

As previously mentioned, I love my TiVo. I love it even more now that the Amazon Video app now supports streaming Prime video. And it snaps into HD pretty quickly (thought not quite as quickly as the Fire TV does). Continue reading

I have an Ikea chair in the Den (which Marisa refers to as "my room" since it is the area of the apartment in which I have the most say over what goes where) and it usually has a pile... Continue reading

I watch a lot of TV, and my TiVo is the best DVR I've ever used (I have a Roamio). I will say that Comcast's X1 is pretty good, though when I had it the DVR would sometimes just not... Continue reading

Going through my closet I found the box for my beloved G4 Cube. Man, I remember ordering that computer like it was yesterday. I really shouldn't have ordered it, since it was super expensive and I really couldn't afford it... Continue reading
