Chromebooks: Reliable and affordable

I recently purchased a Google Chromebook. Chromebooks are different from traditional computers because they run on the Chrome Operating System (OS) and the central focus is the browser. Internet connectivity is thus quite important. Another distinction is that installing native apps (local programs) is not possible ( by default ). The hard drive and amount of memory are also much smaller then computers that do focus on native applications.


Big Game 7 Tonight: Habs-Bruins

Tonight Boston and Montreal square off in the decisive game of their quarterfinal series. It has been a hard fought contest and Montreal has looked very good. Either team can win and should go on to the cup final. What it will come down to are a few key things...

Embarassing, that almost half of 2014 has passed. I suppose I have been busy...

Montreal Canadiens Legitimate Stanley Cup Contenders

In my opinion, this Montreal team has the best opportunity to win the Stanley Cup since 1992-93. The primary reasons are they have one of the best goalies in the game today, Carey Price and a legitimate blend of players needed for post season success.

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!! (2008)

This album has been a staple of my music collection since it's release in 2008. I think it is one of Nick Cave's best albums. The album is moody and full of lyrical imagery. Dark, trancy at times such as on the track "Night of the Lotus eaters". The lyrics of this album are very strong and is what draws me back to it time and again. The track "Midnight Man" is an absolute gem:

Hold that chrysalis in your palm See it split and change It won't do you any harm It's just trying to rearrange

It was born to live a day Now it flies up from your hand It's beautiful It's the one they call your ever loving man

Wolves have carried your babies away Oh, your kids drip from their teeth The nights are long and the day Is bitter cold beyond belief...

...Close your eyes, sleep in him Dream of your lost sons and daughters Me, I'll raise up my dorsal fin And glide up and down the waters

The closing track "More news from nowhere" though just under eight minutes could go sixteen and I would be quite happy to listen to it all.
