Thursday, September 22nd, 2005

One of the older spyware tests I did at Call for Help (with the help of Mike Laz) is now airing in the US, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to post all the Excel spreadsheet results that we generated over the last year in our anti-spyware tests. They are linked individually below and […]

NBP theme music

Monday, September 12th, 2005

I know it may seem like its a taking me a while to get The Next Big Ping podcast off the ground. Post-CFH life has been busier than I had anticipated.

Cat update

Wednesday, September 7th, 2005

Thought I’d share some new cat pix with you. Biff and Boo are just over three months old now. Getting big!

Boo seems to be getting big in the back end. Still has a little head tho. Very sweet cat.

Biff is a little smaller, but longer. He is a terror. Facing licking at 6AM every morning.
