So yeah, I decided to build a computer to replace the factory deck in my 2006 Nissan Frontier NISMO crew cab. I’m doing this for several reasons, but mainly because I dig computers and still have money that hasn’t been spent on hookers and whiskey. A lot of websites and forums refer to car PCs […]

Cingular is the largest mobile phone carrier in the United States with over 60 million subscribers. Despite it’s famous rollover plan, I didn’t jump on the Cingular bandwagon until October 2005.

The author.Born in the year of the Dragon, the author grudgingly accepts the fact he has too many interests and not enough time. A cyclist as long as he can remember, an avid yet inconsistent writer since age eleven, and a U.S. Marine since age twenty-one, the author also adds peak bagging, diving, snowboarding, and computers to his list of interests.
