Idiots in Charge in our Government

My friend, Scott Leffler, will agree with that statement, I’m sure. Let me explain why I’m mad and why I make that statement.

All over the news today has been New York State Attorney General, Andrew Cuomo, who made a special trip to Buffalo to announce what he’s been doing to curb child pornography and while he was at it, take time to take a cheap shot at one of the few locally-run technology companies we have, Localnet.

First of all, let me say, I don’t support child pornography, or any form of pornography, in any way. No one is, or at least will admit in public that they are. That’s one of the techniques politicians use to gain support for their personal agenda, though. They take a sacred cow, like child porn, or breast cancer, and use it as a cloak to wrap their real purposes in and get a knee-jerk response in their favor from the majority of the people who don’t take the time to really look at what they are doing.

Atom Ant strikes again!

First of all, if you’re not up for some serious geekiness, tune out now…

I’ve spent the last few days building up an new computer. Did I need one? Probably not, but this one is unlike any I’ve made before in several ways and it didn’t cost a whole lot either. It’s, so far, turned out well, though not without some tribulations along the way.

The finished project

Here’s a photo of the finished CPU. It is the smallest computer I’ve built. It’s a Mini-ITX formfactor with a motherboard only about 8 inches square. Continue Reading…

Concert IV – Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band

Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Lynrd Skynrd move over, your heir-apparent is here!

The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band brought their blistering blues style to Lockport this week and warmed up an already hot summer night crowd.

Kenny Wayne ShepherdI stayed up front close to the stage for this one. I couldn’t have moved if I wanted to, there were so many music fans packed in front of the stage to see the self-taught, Louisiana guitar prodigy Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

Front man, Noah Hunt, sang and got the crowd into it and the rest of the band was top-notch too, but the highlight was guitarist Shepherd. They put on a show that would have been huge in any of the area venues right here in Lockport. I couldn’t judge the crowd pinned to the front of the stage area, but I must have been the biggest so far.

See all the photos from last night.
