I'm not saying that tech support is a bad job. I have been doing it for years and it is a pretty funny and rewarding job. However, when you become tech-support for your family, well, then all hell breaks loose. Remember that uncle who was calling you?

A few weeks ago, Google released the 64-bit version of the popular Chrome browser and promised increased stability, security, and speed.

For those of you who are blessed enough to own a feline, you are well-aware of their intent to make you as uncomfortable as possible in your daily routines. Needless to say that because of their cuteness, you tend to allow their mischievous behavior and worse, get used to it. Well, my fellow friends, it is time we take back what is ours. It's going to be a long process, and, most likely, we will not win, but God-damn-it, I will not stand here with my arms crossed, while my cat makes a mess out of this articleksjdngffklrddgjy634567uh.
