Escali Badger Brush Review


I hate the Escali shaving brush. There are a handful of brands that carry the same brush. Escali, Tweezerman, Perfecto, and probably some others I don't know about. They're all about $12 and they're trash.

Rocksmith 2014 Review


I've been playing Rocksmith for a few months now, I'm about half way through the 60 day challenge.

The game isn't really a game. It's a powerful tool and can be a very important part of any starting guitarist. It's an incomplete experience, but a very good one. Used to augment normal teaching and it's a slam dunk. On its own, Rocksmith will only bring most people so far.

Review of the Truly Ergonomic Computer Keyboard


I recently picked up a Truly Ergonomic Computer Keyboard (either the TEK or TECK) on eBay for about $200. It's an older model with CherryMX Brown switches instead of the Kailh switches Truly Ergonomic uses nowadays. Other than that, the keyboard is more or less exactly the same. Watch the video above and dive down into the text for some other comments.

Fixing Everything That is Wrong in Arch Linux

I thought about putting wrong in quotes in the title, but I thought that might be too cliché.
