If you’re unfamiliar with the term “RPG”, it’s short for Role Playing Game. These games, which originate from table-top games like Dungeons & Dragons, allow for the player to immerse themselves in a role they create.

The Return!

The Return!
I’m sorry & thank you……………… I know, that’s a bit of an abrupt way to begin my first post in a month. In fact, I’ve been thinking about this piece for the last 4 days, trying to figure out exactly what to say. I had many ideas, but only those 5 words really stuck out & actually meant anything to me. I wanted to apologize to everyone. Even though I understand that I can’t completly own everything that has happened, I still felt throughout the last 4 weeks that I let a lot of people down. The readership on this site was expanding...

Well, the latest addition to this intense power struggle is Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk) & CNN (@cnnbrk). I follow them both, but to be honest, I really wasn’t paying all that much attention.

Internet Explorer Turns 8

So, Microsoft has now released their final build of Internet Explorer 8. After playing around with it, it seems to be even more firmly integrated into Window’s Live.

Below is a quick feature list & if you haven’t downloaded it, you can get it here. For you IE users, give me your thoughts in the ‘Comments’… Bookmark It Hide Sites

Suppository?….Or The New iPod Shuffle!

So, Apple has announced the new iPod Shuffle. Can these things get any smaller? Pretty soon, we will just have an earpiece that is smaller than half of a dime & holds 3 billion songs. One day, maybe, but today we get the new Shuffle. It’s half the size of the 2nd generation version. It will support multiple playlists, a feature I miss from my Nano. To sweeten the deal a bit, Apple has added their new VoiceOver tech to it. Basically, your iPod will now talk to you. Press a button & it will tell you the name of the song, the name of the artist, & the name of the playlist you’re...
