Get Your Mask On at Holloween Adventure

It's that time of year when the leaves turn color, the weather begins to chill, and the sweet scent of Autumn permeates the air.  It's also the time when children don costumes of all sorts, scurrying, with bags in hand, about the neighborhood seeking sweet treats.

Holloween is one of my favorite holidays and as it approaches, my wife and I had planned, as we do every year, to try and shop at those seasonal Holloween costume stores.  And no doubt, as with every other year, we will be left empty handed, finding nothing we like or finding something cool only to discover that it's out of stock.  So thinking about Holloween this year, I decided to check out online holloween costume sites and came across the coolest site of its kind that I've seen.

From superheroes to supervillains and snow white to storm troopers, at Holloween Adventure, the Masters of Masquerade, you'll find these and hundreds more.

This year my wife and I want to go to our family Holloween party dressed as something really cool.  My wife loves the Pirates of the Carribean movies so I thought I would show her the Elizabeth costume, which is simply gorgeous, and it only retails for $54.95!  But for as much as I like the Pirates movies (and believe me, I wouldn't mind dressing as Captain Jack Sparrow), I am a die-hard Star Wars fan and I have always wanted to dress as either Darth Vader or Boba Fett, but Darth Vader it is, and for only $29.99!  And besides, of all the villains in the Star Wars series, Vader will always be the coolest.

So if you're looking for really cool Halloween Costumes for yourself, your kids, or heck, even for your pet puppy, click on over to Holloween Adventure for great costumes, great prices and great fun.

Brainstorming, Mind Mapping, Curio

I use this really cool Mac OS X  (I mean, is there really anything better than a Mac?) software by Zengobi called Curio.  While it lacks many of the things I would like to see in such an application--you really can't go by what I write here because what I want hasn't yet been imagined, except by me of course and I am too lazy to do anything about it--it has great potential and I think that if Zengobi has the vision it can become even more powerful which is really cool.

Part of what it gives you is mind mapping, but unlike mind mapping tools that are all about just mind mapping, Curio gives you a blank canvas onto which you can drop any kind of resource such as images, documents, web pages, etc.  And you can organize all of these sorts of things as mind maps or structured lists.  Or you don't need to do that at all.  You can just be free to layout everything randomly.

It is also a project management application, but it looks nothing like any project management software.  Th…

Quilling and Chilling

Perhaps it's because I own a scrapbooking and papercraft store.  Perhaps it is the artist within.  Perhaps it's sheer boredom as I suffer this long period of employment drought.  But whatever it is, I've decided to learn more about papercrafts and especially something called quilling or paper filigree.

I'm not quite sure why I find fascination in such things.  I am a computer geek, programmer, software developer, etc.  It must go back to my childhood and my fascination with creating arts and crafts.  As a budding artist my bud was snipped from the tree of art, and I never did pursue it. But I love color.  I love how to mix it to create new colors, how to place complimentary colors together, how to match and blend and create things with color.

The tools and the techniques of quilling are deceptively simple.  I say deceptively because although it appears at first that you are simply rolling paper around a slotted rod, forming the rolled paper into one of a few basic shapes…

OS X Yosemite: Breathing new Life into my Old, Faithful Companion

So the other day I wrote that my MacBook seemed to run a little slower and use more memory.  What's strange is now that I've been using it, it's actually running noticeably faster.  It still takes up more memory, but not that much more.  It's like Yosemite has breathed new life into my aging companion.  There is probably something I can do about the memory, too.  What my Mac really needs is more space on the hard drive.  I have some serious cleaning to do.
