Get your tickets to Croncast Live!

Friday, May 18th, 2007

Kris and Betsy are taking their podcast, Croncast, on the road (well, technically it’s more “down the street”) by doing a live show at The Comedy Shrine in lovely downtown Naperville. More information is available over at and you can order tickets directly from Eventbrite… As I have mentioned to Kris in the past, [...]

Wii Are Famous

Thursday, February 1st, 2007

A couple of weeks ago, I was interviewed by a reporter from Reuters regarding the “Wii Party” that we had a month or so ago over at my friend, Rick’s house. The reporter originally found some posts that Kris made on his site and then he gave her my contact info. With all of that [...]

Taking Home the Gold From the Wii Tournament

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

Kris and Betsy has a house full of people over last night for a Wii Tournament (consisting of both boxing and bowling). Liz and I had a great time and are hoping that this becomes a sort of regular “thing”. Besides having so much fun, I can’t help but gloat that I won the trophy [...]

Wii Are Tired

Friday, December 15th, 2006

The majority of the local nerd posse got together last night in the “Klau Man Pit” last night for some Wii action. It’s not that I didn’t already love this video game console (sorry, all), but last night pushed it to the next level. Wii Boxing amongst friends may be the greatest thing ever… And [...]

My Wii Friend Code

Sunday, November 26th, 2006

Hey all, I buried my Wii Friend Code in my post the other day that detailed my Wii Launch Campout Extravaganza… With that said, I’ve gotten lots of emails/IMs asking why I’m not sharing my Friend Code. With that said, here is my Wii Friend Code: 3575 5405 5746 7447 I’m ready to see a [...]

I got my Wii!

Sunday, November 19th, 2006

Yes, I was able to procure a Wii this morning. However, I will publicly admit that I re-confirmed my nerdiness by going against what I said the other day and “camped out” at the local Wal-Mart. I feel guilty admitting this for two reasons: 1.) Yes, I actually spent the night away from my family [...]

Nintendo Giving Naperville Some Props?

Friday, November 17th, 2006

While trying to get my fix of Nintendo news/info with 24 hours left before the launch of the Wii, I stumbled upon this commercial that Nintendo entitled, “Naperville”… Without giving away too much information about where I live, the title instantly grabbed me. ;) My Wii procurement strategy is Meijer (at midnight) -> Target (crack [...]

Dear ActiveSync…

Monday, September 25th, 2006

You suck. You see, you’ve jacked up my computer TWICE today by completely hosing all of my network connections. Looking back, I didn’t need you then and I still don’t need you. You made it seem like you were going to solve all of my problems, but after a quick reboot you turned on me [...]

Matt Has Preserved a Piece of the Internet

Saturday, September 9th, 2006

Matt has saved the Tao of Regular Expressions. I have used this once or twice in my day and now know where I can always get it (without having to Google it)…
