I too wish George Carlin was still here…

The folks at the F- Sensitivity Facebook page (rated pg-13), posted this to their feed, it got me to thinking how much I actually miss George Carlin. The man was a comedy legend, and he was among the most irreverent, albeit insightful comedians I have ever had the pleasure of watching on an HBO Special. There are many comedians whom I respect, and find funny, but none as much as George, he just had something special that appealed to me, something i just haven’t found anywhere else. I to would love to see his take on the crazy state of affairs the American political system is in.

In case you were wondering I have literally no interest in the Kardashians, I do give kudos on their success in (what is it they do again?), but really could give a shit about them, and would gladly make this trade.

Cloud Server Quick Review – Digital Ocean vs Vultr

Welcome to part one of what will be a multi part series of reviews on cloud server providers. When we talk about cloud providers many people think about the big three, Google’s Compute, Amazon’s AWS, and Microsoft’s Azure. Thing is while these are powerful, they are generally complicated, can be expensive, and have pricing that may as well be written in hieroglyphics. Good news though there is relief for those of us who only need the basics, and value simplicity, enter “cloud” servers.

Cloud servers, or Cloud VPS are the new industry words for what we essentially knew as VPS (Virtual Private Servers), but slightly improved, and generally cheaper than traditional VPS providers. The cloud server companies that I looked at offer low pricing, pay as you go billing, instant server creation/destruction and simple interfaces. For part one of this series of reviews I have narrowed them down to the two that I absolutely love, Digital Ocean and Vultr.

Dude your phone is on fire! ( Oh Samsung… smh)

So for those of you who have been living under a rock, Samsung is facing major issues with their Note 7 phones. Their flagship mobile product is literally a ticking time bomb. The situation over there is grim, this faux pas has cost the company billions, and tarnished its reputation worldwide. With the fierce competition in the mobile arena, this could not have been worse timing. Many are calling this a massive win for those Apple guys out in Cupertino, and I can’t say that they are wrong. Samsung is a big company, and I’m sure they will survive the storm, and their shareholders will recover their losses, but the question that remains on my mind is simple, How in the Hell did they let this happen.

Hello World! – JAGB’s First Post

Welcome to JustAnotherGeekBlog.com! This is my inaugural post here, and I’m happy you are reading it. So this blog is just what the name implies, just another blog in a sea of blogs. The geek is in reference to its owner, me (you can read more about me here). Basically this is my place to post on things I feel like posting on, if others wanna stop in and check it out that is awesome, I’m glad to have you stop in, maybe I’ll post something you find insightful or even useful, and that would make it even better.

So what will you find here you might ask. Well I like computers and technology, so guess what I will be blogging about (hint: it won’t be about collecting my little pony stuff). As you can see by the menu bar that I will be reviewing products and services that I find useful. Under the Projects and Experiences banner I will post some of the projects I undertake, my lessons learned from the, to include step by step instructions for some of them. Some of these will be ongoing projects with updates, some will be simple one paragraph posts. The last thing you will find is my random thoughts and commentary on technology and the world as a whole (really, with my ADD, there is no telling what will end up here….oooo squirrel)

What you likely will not find here is a full time tech news blog (well at least not at the moment, one never knows where these projects will take you). I may post an article or two that are legit news but if you want full time news I recommend you head on over to one of the hundreds of tech news blogs that are available. Another thing you probably won’t find here is polish, or pizazz, just not my style, and as you can already tell I am not an English major.

At any rate, thanks for visiting, check back, see whats new, and feel free to post something in the comments if you desire. Unless you are a spammer, than please just piss off.
