Still alive

I hope I’ll get a little time to write some more stuff soon.

I have seen the future of the web and it is shiny [UPDATED]

Web 2.0 is here. Sure, it’s the future of the Internet, but since the Internet waits for nobody, we need to deal with this wonderful future technology now. Why? Well, mainly because it’s here. This doesn’t even take into account Web 3.0, but since it’s a real future technology, not a future technology of today, […]

Breakfast of Champions

I went to lunch with a friend and Las Vegas blogger Hurricane Mikey yesterday. He actually writes in his blog, as opposed to me. I just pay hosting fees and occasionally pop in with something interesting to say or (more probably) something to complain about. Anyway, I heartily encourage you to visit his blog and […]

Fry’s price matching works!

I’m genuinely surprised in a happy way. Fry’s has a price matching policy. It’s not plastered all over the store, but I found it on the good ol’ Interweb after a short search: If within 30 days of purchasing an item from Fry’s you see a lower in-stock price at a local competitor with a […]

Merry Christmas from the Vargases

Christmas brings up so many fond memories of turkeys at Grandma’s, her special stuffing, presents, and happy family times. Memories of snow, cold, and even some bad weather. So many wonderful memories, and too many to mention here. To me, Christmas simply means joy. I cannot think about Christmas without smiling. Mrs. Vargas and I […]

Check Your Stats, You Might Be Missing Something

The say that Google page rank is everything on the Internet these days, and that getting it is somewhat of a black science. I don’t write these pages with any particular page ranking in mind. Since “Lars Vargas” is a fairly uncommon name, I tend to rank pretty high (usually at the top) when searched […]

The Christmas Decorations Are Up

That’s right, it’s a “Christmas” theme. Not a “Holiday” theme. I’m totally not into that politically correct crap, where we cannot possible offend anyone for any reason, or exclude them. Then again, I never did anything to exclude anyone. They pretty much excluded themselves. But this isn’t about PC blanding everything into a homogenous gray […]

The New Site Design Is Up

It’s amazing how a little spare time evaporates quickly and a quick project turns into one that takes much longer than anticipated. But such is life. The re-styles theme for the site is up. As usual, there are a few rough edges that will smooth out over the next few days. I am going to […]

Minor Makeover, More to Come

I have a little bit of spare time to play with the site’s design. The original Lars Vargas design was something I threw together in a few hours in order to get a site up and going. It’s rough around the edges at best, ugly at worst. I have made a few incremental changes today, […]

Ok, so what IS this mess?

Well, this mess, bless its little heart, is a blog. You probably know what that is, but in the interest of complete disclosure and adding a few extra words to the page, a “blog” is a “weblog”, or someone’s log on the web. There are lots of different kinds of logs: Yule Logs, Lincoln Logs, […]
