2014 TestFest: Viva Niagara!

What a week it has been, my friends! I just returned home from six days and six nights in the beautiful and vivacious gorge town known as Niagara Falls, Ontario. It was no second honeymoon and, no, I wasn’t there to gamble. I did break even at the Fallsview Casino roulette wheel though — the only gambling device I’ve ever… Read more →

Back at Performance Publications

Alas, the day has come. After diving head first in to the automotive freelancing waters some seven-and-a-half years ago, it’s finally time to come back up for some air.

Different versions are available for different operating systems, so make sure you get the… Read more →

Get on Xbox Live with cheap wireless-to-Ethernet tutorial

I played with the 360 a few weeks before subscribing to the XBOX Live service. After hours upon hours of playing PGR3, Perfect Dark Zero and Kameo over and over again all by myself, I was ready to get onto Live. My cable modem and, thus my Internet connection, is located two stories above in my office, however, the logistics… Read more →
