  • A Whole New (Jekyll) World

    I got bored, and decided to change from Octopress to Jekyll. Octopress does a lot of things automatically that I wanted to do myself.

  • Five Thousand In Four

    From the 5th to the 9th of this month, I drove 5000km (a bit more, in fact) across a good chunk of Canada via the Trans-Canada Highway. Some things happened, and I tweeted about them (in a safe way, of course).

  • Beginner PC Builder's Guide

    Writing this as a guide for a first-time PC builder. Usually these guides are just lists of parts to put together, but I’m going to try to make this one more detailed and descriptive. Parts listed here go for about $800 on Newegg.ca. For each of these items, go to the Newegg page and click the Specifications tab; that’s where the specs I’m describing are listed.

  • Psychology? That's the (easiest|hardest) degree ever!

    “Possible things, then, will be all those things that are not impossible things - that is, all those things that are either contingent or necessary. If there are no necessary things then all possible things will be contingent and all contingent things will be possible. If there is a necessary thing, however, then there will be a possible thing which is not contingent.” - Philosophy: The Quest For Truth (Pojman, Vaughn)

  • Winter Tires vs. Snow Tires - Who Gives a Damn? (I do, and you should too.)

    Okay folks, it’s time for me to let you in on a little secret, one that I’ve learned from living in the north for most of my life - “snow tires” and “winter tires” are NOT the same thing, and confusing the two is, to put it lightly, not a great idea.

  • Philosophy of Life - The Future

    This was written as an assignment for my grade 12 religion class, which I recently re-discovered. Interesting for me to read, to see how it aligns with that which I believe now, but likely boring as hell for others. Enjoy at your own risk.

  • All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't solve the world's problems – so why do you think you can?

    Every day on my way to work, I bike past an elementary school. When I’m running a bit late (which happens all too often), I bike past right before the bell rings. I hear laughing and yelling, the usual jovial sounds of youth and whatnot. I see kids running around, having fun, hitting each other with baseball bats with nails in them (it’s a tough hood). Basically, I see and hear the very definition of being carefree. I know this question has become cliché to the point that saying it is cliché is clichéd, but seriously – what happened to us? When did the world’s problems become our problems?

  • Normal isn't depressing

    Having spent the last two days at a NAPEG (http://www.napeg.nt.ca/) conference, I’ve heard some fairly inspiring, informative and motivating speeches and presentations. However, one particular sentence spoken by one presenter really got me thinking. Oddly, it had nothing to do with her presentation, and in fact was, in context, a largely meaningless phrase - “Otherwise it’ll just be normal, and normal is depressing.” Yes, this is one of those weird things that gets me thinking. In order to do a traditional thought analysis at this point, it would probably be advisable to get out a dictionary and define “normal”, as well as explore what depression is. However, I’m not a linguist, nor am I a doctor, so going into such activites would be largely pointless, since I aim to thoroughly ignore both definitions and research. (Facts? Pfft, you can use facts to prove anything!)
