Factory Mac and Why I Don’t Run Linux

By | 2016-08-09T00:01:39+00:00 August 9th, 2016|Blog|1 Comment

It happened again. I got bit by the Linux bug and downloaded the new point-one release of Ubuntu. After the iso was done downloading, I grabbed unetbootin and threw it on a USB key. Five minutes later I was ripping through the install and partitioning my Macbook Pro to accept a dual boot. Little hacky stuff aside, it's a smooth ride. When I rebooted, with rEFInd bringing the business at startup, I had the choice to boot to Ubuntu before finally... seeing nothing but a blank screen. To provide a little clarity and context here, let me begin by saying [...]

Doom: An unexpected pleasure.

By | 2016-08-07T11:28:53+00:00 August 7th, 2016|Blog|4 Comments

Originally, I was fine to just tell the people who'd told me to play this game that they were right. After another hour or so last night, that moved to telling everyone. This game rocks. I don't know if it's the nostalgic feeling of playing a straight-ahead shooter with no stupid crafting, RPG mechanics or other tacked-on elements or the structure of a Doom game in and of itself (open door, clear room) but this game has me hooked. It's fast, intense and full of raunchy violence. It's just perfect. It should be noted that I didn't get the chance [...]

TangoNovember: HSGI Taco Mag Pouches (M4, Double Decker)

By | 2016-08-06T23:51:15+00:00 August 6th, 2016|TangoNovember|2 Comments

Let's be clear about one thing, this is a fresh box, zero range time review. I have not put these pouches through any kind of drilling, extended use or target practice of any kind. This is one of those touchy-feely reviews that really irks the likes of people who think they can do it better, but rarely put pen to paper to prove it. I'll be telling you what I think based on what I know so far. If you're at all familiar with TangoNovember as a project, you'll know that we're about a simple thing here - discussion from [...]

Athabasca University: My experiences so far.

By | 2016-08-05T10:41:34+00:00 August 5th, 2016|Blog|4 Comments

Over the last few years, I've undertaken a number of changes. It started with simple stuff and has since moved on to larger, system-wide changes, if you will. Maybe I'll write a blog post on that in a few days or something. One of the largest changes I made by far was the decision to pursue a degree from a university based in Alberta - AU. I'm enrolled in the BA - Information Systems program. My thinking, when trying to decide if the program was worth the thousands of dollars I was bound to spend on it, was twofold. For [...]

Navigating Privacy as a Content Creator

By | 2016-08-03T10:58:33+00:00 August 3rd, 2016|Blog|0 Comments

I think I just figured out what kept me up past midnight last night. I want to control my online identity. I want to be able to have control over how I'm presented online. I also want to be able to control what data is taken from me. There's two very distinct things happening with my data here - push and pull. When I make a post here on my blog, I want to be able to control certain elements of that - for example, I want to be able to control the content. I have to be the gatekeeper [...]

TangoNovember: Tactical Nerds

By | 2016-08-01T13:07:06+00:00 August 2nd, 2016|Blog|2 Comments

It really shouldn't be any surprise to you that I'm a big fan of guns, pointy objects and nylon tactical gear. My Instagram feed is constantly updated (between the images of lunch plates and dog faces) with gear pics. I used to keep a pretty regular blog, now defunct, on the particular subject of gear reviews and preparedness philosophies. Back in the day, it was called 'civilian sheepdog'. Broken links and all, you're welcome to explore the link above for old reviews and entirely subjective takes on world events. I came up with the idea for Tango November while playing [...]

Month of August – Challenging my self-discipline.

By | 2016-08-01T11:27:10+00:00 August 1st, 2016|Blog|0 Comments

We're here! August has finally arrived and just in time, too. Last night, after disgracing the efforts I've been making to maintain my weight at a fighting-fit 170lbs, I scarfed down basically a million baby cookies - my weakness. I'd said in a post on Facebook recently that for the month of August, I was going to write every single day. Following a marathon of vlog-watching, where I really only follow one vlogger by the name of Robby (his channel here), I became inspired by the tenacity he approaches creativity with. He produces a vlog every day because he loves [...]

Second kind of cool: a trap I know too well.

By | 2016-07-31T16:26:54+00:00 July 31st, 2016|TangoNovember|1 Comment

At least I know it, right? I mean, at least I'm present enough, self actualized enough or real enough with myself. Whatever you want to call it, I know my pulls. I'm pulled to black and tan, pressure switches and purpose built gear. A while back (a good while, now that I think about it) I happened upon a super popular youtuber who introduced me to a few now-popular terms in the action-shooting community. Try as I might to incorporate them into my day to day, I still fall victim to the little mental demon of 'second kind of cool'. [...]

TangoNovember: Review of Echo M1942 Jump Uniform from AtTheFront

By | 2016-07-28T00:05:09+00:00 July 28th, 2016|TangoNovember|33 Comments

Well, what can I say - I've got a thing for WWII. I could think of no better way to start off my ambitions to start reviewing gear again by first taking a swing at an item I could find almost no literature on myself before I purchased it. Between the games, stories, podcasts and tattoos, my buddies know well that I'm the WWII-guy of our group. Quite a few years ago, I became involved in the OAWWIIR group, founded by a great guy in London, ON. Some years later, as a result of my ongoing battle with Hobby-ADD, I'd [...]
