Anyone else hate selling on eBay?  So here’s the story..  I sell refurbished blackberries on eBay, I take old blackberries swap out the housings, make sure everything is working and I list them on eBay.  I cringe every time someone with no feedback wins an auction because more often than not, I’m going to get […]

New York and Boston 2008

Back in September 2008, I had this huge craving for clam chowda.  Back in January, I went to Boston with my buddy Russell to catch the Spice Girls concert (Tickets were well over $2000 in Vancouver and Russell went to college in Boston so he knows the city well).  That’s when I had my first […]

Does Watching My MPG Make Me A Bad Driver?

I don’t know if this is true or not but I’ve noticed that I’ve picked up a lot of bad driving habits ever since purchasing my new Sonata and I believe it stems from watching my fuel economy.  Back when I was driving around in my sports car, red lights meant “alright, let’s race”…  Now […]

What should I do with my MR2?

What should I do with my MR2 Turbo….  that’s been bugging me since I purchased my Sonata.  How did I end up with a Sonata?  Well, that’s pretty easy to explain.  Back in February, about a eek prior to my trip to Hawaii, the alternator was starting to die in the car.  I knew the […]

Instructions on how to turn a Barnes and Noble Nook Color into a Star Trek LCARS PADD

Yeah, I know… everyone’s probably wondering why I posted a teaser of my Nook on XDA Developers and then leave it at that for so long.  What can I say, I’m a procrastinator and I’m easily distracted into doing other things.  Hell, it took me 2 weekends just to complete the theme itself.  It looks […]

I turned a Barnes and Noble Nook into a Star Trek LCARS PADD

On a recent trip to Las Vegas, I picked up a Nook Color from Barnes and Noble.  As a lot of people already know, the device can be easily turned into a very capable 7″ tablet and it only costs $250 + tax!  As a Trekkie, I immediately thought, “That thing is the perfect size […]

Mclaren F1 sighting

I was recently browsing Revscene and came upon a thread about nice cars in Vancouver.  A lot of people were posting pics of Lamborghini’s and Ferrari’s that they’ve spotted on the streets of Vancouver.  There sure are a lot of nice cars here but I think my F1 sighting takes the cake.  It was about […]

China Trip - Day 14 - Final day

We went to some city built on water that was like an older version of Venice.  There were cats carved everywhere…  After that, back to the bund where we were yesterday.  The overcast skies actually cleared up today and I could see blue!  After some picture taking, we went to dinner in a mall and […]

China Trip - Day 13 - A day in Shanghai

Went around town checking out the local attractions.  Well, mostly checking out the Bund.  The architecture is very diverse.  Some of  you may know that Shanghai is an international business city.  The population is diverse and the the buildings reflect the different peoples that live here.  You’ll probably notice that many of the buildings are […]
