RouterNinja's Dojo

A stroll down the path of Nerdlighenment.

Once again I am late to the party..

So I came into Nerdcore late.  I really got into MC Fronalot, MC Lars, Beefy, YT Cracker, and all the rest.. Now of course I have the problem of wanting to see them live, and I dont think most of them are coming anywhere near me.  I missed MC Lars and MC Chris in Atlanta a couple weeks ago.  So my favorite nerdcore track has got to be “Ones and Zeroes” with Beefy and YT Cracker. I dug the “Nerdy South” line, being in Atlanta and hearing the “Dirty Souf” crap, it was a nice way to bring it back to the geeks.   I cant seem to find it on youtube, so you’ll have to check it out on Spotify or iTunes or whatever method you use for getting your music..  Close second would be MC Frontalot’s “Victorian Space Prostitute” which is a great breakdown of every cosplayer I have ever seen.

I’ll add more as I think of it.

Logitech finally catches up to 6 months ago.

So my Logitech Revue is finally getting the Honeycomb upgrade.  I gotta admit it looks pretty cool. Mom may end up getting my ATV and I can get a 2nd Revue for the bedroom.

Got a mention on SBN #46 this week also.

SBN being Sound Bite Nation, the podcast that follows NetHeads on SIR on Sunday nights. I sent them a D-Bag of the week suggestion and it looks like they used it on their show, got a couple nice shout outs, always good to help feed the ego 🙂 Kind of took me by surprise on the way into work as I was listening and I heard my twitter handle.. Not a bad way to start the day.  I admit I still get those “They said my name, I’m routerninja! I’m that guy!” moments sometimes. I know, stupid fanboy moment but its neat to me. 🙂

Yay for Friday!

So I have settled into my job this morning as an engineer at a Death Star themed telephone company. 🙂 Got my 1 year coming up here and I’m pretty happy how things are going.   Got the kids coming over tonight for another fun-filled weekend.  Have to make sure to remember to hit the grocery store on the way home.  I am woefully low on kid supplies.  That and I think I promised Abby a meatloaf. not sure why.   Here’s to hoping the day goes by a little faster today.

So I called into NetHeads last Sunday.

It was a pretty good experience, I think there was some delay because I dont remember that much dead air and lulls in the conversation, my call starts at about the 41-42 minute mark, goes for about 10-15 minutes, and we cover a lot of ground from games to hockey. It was pretty awesome to be able to talk to Will and Trent, and I think I will have to do it again soon.

A reboot was needed.

So I have had various handles since I dialed up to my first BBS in 1985.  I’ve had lots of changes in my life, love and loss.  But I think it’s about time for a serious reboot.  I adopted the Routerninja name as a joke when I worked at AOL. and I guess it’s kinda stuck.  So I decided today to grab the domain and build something new for me..

Hope ya’ll like it.
