    So this is my 12,000th Geekologie article -- go me. I got a breakfast burrito this morning to celebrate and I even put a candle in it. It was one of those tall tapered ones your mom sets out on the dining room table for Christmas dinner. Yeah, and I just sung 'Happy 12,000 a... / Continue →

    Some of you guys are experiencing a T-Mobile ad that's hovering in the middle of the page, where it's not supposed to be. There's a problem with the ad and we're not sure why it's displaying like that, but if you're getting it, just hit refresh. The ad goes away and we get one ... / Continue →

    Sorry for the delay on darkening up the site. The vibe we got from you guys was that having to click a button was too annoying and most of you would rather the site just default to black. As such, we decided to just scrap the white altogether. And if we were going to only have ... / Continue →

    We thought maybe because there was less white your eyes would be able to withstand the brightness of your monitors, but apparently your corneas are even thinner than we imagined. Well fear not, cave-dwelling readers, we're working on a black option which we'll hopefully have ro... / Continue →

    We worked as hard and quickly as we could to bring back the darkness some of you guys seem to have missed so much. If the site is still showing up with tons of white on it, hit refresh and you should be transported to the dark theme. We're still working on a permanent redesign,... / Continue →

    Apparently a crap ton of you are more sensitive to light than we had realized and the white background has caused permanent damage to your retinas. Well we've heard the cries from your darkened caves, and we're working on a dark-themed version of the site. We also shrunk the po... / Continue →

    So there's gonna be a NEW AND IMPROVED Geekologie in the very near future. Possibly even tonight. That's why you can't comment today, because we want you to save up all those gems (gems, LOL) for the new system. That or something went horribly, horribly wrong. So yeah, stay... / Continue →

    4.6-billion years in the making (I like to start at the beginning), Geekologie now has Facebook and Twitter buttons on every post so you can share the site's awesomeness while minimizing clicks. "Three clicks and a copy/paste? THAT'S SOME CARPAL TUNNEL KINDA SHIT!" So yeah, ... / Continue →

    It took awhile (is Twitter dead already? I have no idea), but we were finally able to score the Geekologie Twitter page from whoever started it. It wasn't easy, and many Bothans died in the process, but hopefully it'll be worth it. Especially now since I'll be able to tweet ... / Continue →

    BOOMSHACKALACKA -- this is my seven-thousandth article here on Geekologie. For those of you that aren't good at the maths, that's like a seven with forty 0's after (at least in my mind it is). You know, it seems like only yesterday I was nearing 1,000 posts and convinced I'd ... / Continue →

    For those of you who haven't noticed, Geekologie is getting flagged as a reported malware attack site. Obviously, we'd never do that to you. Some bad third-party ad (dammit Google, don't you check those things?!) snuck in last night but was caught and removed immediately (rea... / Continue →

    Based on the emails I've received, there's been some concern lately as to whether I've died or been replaced. The answer is no. Sure I do die a little inside everyday, but I've been filling Geekologie with the finest malt-humor I can since August 2007. What I am doing is tak... / Continue →

    Finally, the moment you've all forgotten about been waiting for: the winners of last week's Buckyball giveaway! I promised I'd give a set to the first person with a non-first related comment, and used a random integer generator to select from the more than 6,600 entries for th... / Continue →

    So buckyballs are now available in gold, silver and black finishes ($35 + $6 handling) and I'm giving away 10 free sets from GetBuckyballs.com. It's just like last time, except instead of reading 1,600 haiku I'm just gonna give one to the first person to not post FIRST! in the... / Continue →

    So a Jumble Bag (link to site) is basically a Woot.com Bag of Crap, except you don't have to sit at your computer jamming F5 for two days straight only to watch the server crash and not get your order processed. $5 gets a random jumble sent to your door (free shipping) and you... / Continue →

    Today, May 25th, is Geek Pride Day. Be geeky, be proud. Ask out that geeky girl you've always wanted AND DON'T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER. Kidding -- no means no, Don Juan. Geek Pride Day is an initiative which claims the right of every person to be a nerd or a geek. It has been... / Continue →

    Geekologie Readers, That's right, six thousand. That's a six with like forty zeros. Now I know what you're thinking, "Jesus, GW, you must have been blogging since before Al Gore invented the internet to write 6,000 articles". But it's not true, I took over August 7th, 2007.... / Continue →

    And that, my friends, is exactly why I'm a geek. Now I don't know about you, but I am NOT socially inept. As a matter of fact, one time I even talked to a stranger at a bar. Wrong number. I'm suave! FINALLY: The Difference between Nerd, Dork, and Geek Explained by a Venn D... / Continue →

    Facebook has been linked to a 4x rise in syphilis in some parts of Britain because "it has given people a new way to meet multiple partners for casual sexual encounters." Geez, whatever happened to scrawling your number on the urinal divider in rest stop bathrooms? The viru... / Continue →

    Geekologists, I'm leaving today to drive 2,100 miles cross country to Los Angeles, which I will be calling home until it chews me up and spits me out and tries to urinates on me before I roundhouse kick it in the pecker (I may be down, but I'm never out). That's my actual set... / Continue →
