Meet Sophie, our new LhasaPoo

While I thought it would have taken a little longer, everyone hated our house without a dog.  So after an exhaustive search all over the southeast, we found Sophie.  She is a 4 months old and is already showing the intelligence we love of this breed. In the three days we’ve had her, she’s had only two indoor “accidents”, the rest have been in her spot outside.  She sleeps quietly through the night in her kennel and loves to cuddle on the couch.

My MAME Arcade Cabinet – 20hrs of Work, but Worth It

I bet there is not a techie anywhere that has not seen a Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME) cabinet and not wanted one.  Building one is somewhat akin to earning an eagle scout badge, in the world of geekdom. For those of you who’ve never heard of a MAME cabinet;  it is a PC built within a normal looking arcade cabinet, running a specialized piece of software which “emulates” the old hardware of real arcade machines.  This emulator allows the actual ROMs from arcade games to be loaded and run, in all their 8-bit glory. Apparently MAME’ers like to brag and gloat, because there are a ton of information online about MAME cabinet projects, because .  While the best source of information is Arcade, it was Chris Moyles’ “The Story of a Cabinet Built in 24 hours” that gave me the itch.
