1. Scotch Review - Aberlour A'bunadh Batch #50

    This bottle is truly wonderful and worth every penny of admission. As someone who loves anything that comes out of a Sherry barrel, I was bound to love this scotch and from the score I give it below, it’s quite obvious that I did. …


  2. Scotch Review - The Macallan 15 Fine Oak

    As you all know, I love my scotch. This will be the first time I’ve actually sat down to do a tasting and noted what I taste. These are extremely subjective, but hopefully it will help someone out there in their search for scotch that they would like. …


  3. I Don't Manage Servers Anymore

    For the last decade I’ve been building websites and services using the standard way of doing things: New Project? New Server. That meant that every time I had a random project that I wanted to work on, I spun up a new server, configured the OS (I’ve gotten really good at configuring the default Windows and Ubuntu settings), set up monitoring, configured proper SSH/Admin access, blah, blah, blah. By the time I had all of that completed, I was bored and distracted, so I went and hung out in the real world. This lead to a bunch of abandoned projects. …

  7. You Drive a 4000 lb+ Vehicle

    I don’t often go on a rant like this, but this is getting ridiculous. Texting/Tweeting/Whatever while driving. First things first, let’s look at this from a physics perspective. My car, a Subaru Outback weighs just shy of 4700lbs, I weigh 172lbs. Most of the cars in Worthington (my town) seem to be of similar size to my car, so for argument’s sake, cars in my town weigh 27 times as much as me. Do you want to do the math as to what the force is of a car hitting you at 20 mph? Let’s just say it’s a lot. …


  8. Why Are We Killing Each Other?

    I’m embarrassed with the state of our Nation and with the state of our World. …


  9. Three Months of Running

    As some of you may know, I’ve been working on my health pretty hard for about three months. This is a very short amount of time, but I have to say, I’m very happy with my progress. The only things that I’ve been doing to improve my health, is to watch my food just a little bit closer, and run about 3-4 times a week. …
