[Daily Geekery] December 10, 2010

Well, it's the end of the week and it's been a rather busy one for me in terms of the whole real world kind of thing. No complaints here - it just comes with the territory of trying to make a living. I doubt I'm going to be able to make a full-time career out of my blogging at this point, but again that's not a major issue. I do this because I enjoy writing, even though I get very little feedback about what I end up posting around here.

Let's move right along now, shall we?

  • Gizmodo: Is A Prosthetic Tentacle Better Than A Prosthetic Arm? - Yeah, I can't speak for how functional it might be in the long run, but it would definitely be much cooler. I'm just glad they're trying to think along non-traditional lines for prosthetics now - why stick to the traditional human design when there are other ideas that might be more effective, right?
  • MSNBC: First Read - Key vote on 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' repeal fails - This news saddened me, but at the same time it's not a big surprise. This is a pretty heated lame duck session until the end of the year and the Republicans have made their priorities pretty clear. While I admire the Democrats for trying to take a hard line stance on key issues, they also need to recognize the need to get the needed support plus the importance of deal-making and compromising. Well, I doubt this is going to happen anytime soon, but it's worth a shot and we have to keep trying.
  • ABC News: Warrants: Tortures, Death for Ala. Kids - I wasn't following this story too closely until I read this particular item. The deaths of these kids were just horrible - downright inhuman to some degree. If he is in fact guilty, I hope they catch him.
  • PC World: How to Optimize Your Router for VoIP and Video - There's more to home networking that just successfully setting up your router or putting a password on your wirelness netowr. This is a great guide for further tweaking your settings and getting the most out of your router.
