The shoes command me…

… or at least they know my commands.

I received these custom Chucks for Yaksmas.


Funny story about them. At least one that I think is funny. One that gives an entirely new meaning to sneakernet.

The “D0NTPAN1C” stitched into the back of them? That *was* my master password. Well, kind of. It was the one I had set up so the Husbear could access my information if I got hit by a bus. (Apparently, he is unaware of case-sensitivity when it comes to passwords.) But I changed the password anyway.

Next time I’ll just seal the password in an envelope and not actually tell him what the password is.

Until next time...

But wait, there’s something printed on the bottom of the package.


Well hello Mr. Ducky!


Thank you Mr. Anonymous. 😉

Stop SOPA and PIPA!

My site will go dark on January 18 in protest of the U.S. Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and PROTECT-IP Act (PIPA).

I personally feel very strongly about freedom of expression. I believe strongly not only in people’s self expression, but in the free form of that expression.

Help fight against internet censorship. Call your congress person and express your commitment to the free expression of ideas, as protected by the U.S. Constitution. Learn more at and
