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. My clunky Nokia smart phone was in a bad need of a downsize, and since the Cingular had bought up AT&T (or was it […]

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 computers, snowboarding, and motorcycles to his list of interests.
