What Don’t You Want?

In this fabulous 2016 film, “Hell or High Water”, Marcus Hamilton (Jeff Bridges), a Texas Ranger near retirement, and Alberto Parker (Gil Birmingham), his half-Comanche partner, enter the...

Weekly Digest #1

The weekly digest is an attempt to collect all those major and minor things that just seem to fly by all too fast. This week we’ve got some photos and a whole list of quick shots to point you towards...

The Internet of … Nothing

The other day I got an interesting response from an old 9rules acquaintance who has often thought about “going dark”, permanently unplugging his private life from the Internet to keep the...

Star Wars Despecialized Editions (header).

Star Wars Despecialized

The Star Wars “despecialized” editions have been around for quite some years now and have been upgraded here or there with major or minor tweaks to make them even better. They are absolute labors of love and thousands of hours have so...

Banshee (banner).

Banshee – Dumb Fun in Amish Country

Yes, I know. As a responsible teacher and as an educated TV viewer I shouldn’t have liked Banshee, which surprisingly managed a 4-season run, but I did. Actually, it was one of my favorite series these past few years. It was trashy. It was...

DesktopServer? Money Well Spent!

Getting things done correctly and quickly No matter what people tell you, moving a WordPress website or, worse, merging and then moving websites is not an easy thing to do. It becomes especially cumbersome if your website or websites are on a shared...

Rebooting deus62.com.

Rebooting One Final Time

Blogging is dead. That’s why I’m still around doing it. I have never really been an early adopter or someone who really liked to follow popular trends. When people were wearing bell-bottoms, I put on normal pants, when people started...

Whitesnake. Come an' Get It (1981).

Whitesnake. Come an’ Get It (Liberty, 1981)

One would think that today I might be embarrassed for listing this release as one of my absolute favorites, but, as you know, I don’t make excuses for whatever rocks my boat. When this was released, close to the end of my seemingly endless...

Santana Live at the House of Blues, 2016.

Into the 70s: Santana IV Live at the House of Blues

Santana was a major force in my musical life in the middle/late 70s. I came late to the game, turned onto their music way after they had left a major splash at Woodstock as well as with their previous and subsequent live outings, but, when I bought...

Nordlux "Arki".

Nordlux Arki

I was in the market for new desk lamps and happen to be someone who likes to adhere (somewhat) to the Bauhaus school of design (or Scandinavian simplicity, if you prefer). The problem is that once you start looking around for desk lamps (or floor...

Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016), T580N.

Samsung Tab A (2016)

The other day I was still excited about the Lenovo Yoga Book, which seemed just like what I had been looking for these past months. Alas, many reviews that have appeared around the Internet since that post quickly moved that particular gadget off my...

Blade Runner (Roy Batty).

Like Tears in Rain …

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die...

Bryan Stevenson. Just Mercy.

Just Mercy

I just finished one of the best and most important books I’m likely to read this decade, Bryan Stevenson’s “Just Mercy”, which was first published in September 2014. In this book, Stevenson, who is “… an American...
