    Good computer/gaming chair

    I have the 'old school' AK Octane that I got almost a decade ago (might be over a decade now actually). Love love love that chair.

    Facebook Bug Allowed Attackers to Take Over Accounts on Other Sites

    Seemed to happen to me quite awhile ago. Didn't use my old 1996 yahoo address for facebook and someone made an account using it even though they didn't have my yahoo password. So I just took it back and removed the other address and left it as a fake/blank profile.

    Is Paying For Antivirus A Waste Of Money?

    Soeaking of, I found a Riva 128 in my office today. Anyone want it? On topic: I use Kaspersky and paid Malwarebytes just to be safe when I have a brain fart and click on something impatiently.

    Apartment-Dwellers Shop Online More

    We have probably about 200 units on 5 floors in my building and all packages are taken in a back room in the leasing office. It's an absolute madhouse.

    Pittsburgh Mayor: Verizon Broke Agreement To Provide FiOS To Entire City

    Correct, it was right about the time GF was started (2004, 2005ish I believe). I think I was one of the first FIOS ones because we were on DSL and 18k+ feet from the office so we could only get 860kbit max down when it worked at all.
