Tracing my possibly royal lineage

Tracing my possibly royal lineage
Posting this mainly for my own clarity and collection, but also my father, sisters, neice, nephews, son, and anyone else who might find it interesting. Like many people lately, I decided to buy one of those DNA kits to learn more about my ancestry. I got a kit from Ancestry.com and when I was registering my kit it asked me to fill out a family tree. My mom was adopted so I figured I'd hold-off on ...

Mr. Robot is a really good tv show

Mr. Robot is a really good tv show
If you liked the movie "Hackers" or "Fight Club" and/or you're interested in anything about "hacking" you'll probably love Mr. Robot.

Who Is “The Blue Jean Committee”?

Who Is “The Blue Jean Committee”?
Fred Armisen and Bill Hader are two of my favorite comedians. I've liked pretty much everything these guys have done. And now they've teamed up to do a show full of fake documentary style shorts. I highly recommend the whole show (you can find it on Netflix and Youtube) but the coup de gras of the series is the two part season finale. The guys play founding members of an iconic (yet fake) 70's ban...

Niche Website – Diabetic Shoes

Niche Website – Diabetic Shoes
Diabetic shoes I created a website (DiabeticShoes.com) with a physician friend of mine to try and help people with diabetes find the right shoes at an affordable price. I'm hoping I can get the site to come up on the first page of Google. If you're interested in search engine optimization and are curious how to get a page to rank highly in the results you might be interested in watching if I can ...
