Road Rage

Today, boys and girls, we're going to talk about driving. I know that every other car nerd blogger in the world has written a 'slow traffic keep right' rant.  It's all the same, and I'm sure you're sick of hearing it.  Well, guess what?  They're all correct!  SLOW TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT!  If you're not passing […]

Why pdb is getting nothing done today

Fun ‘n Games!

Wishing to promote the unique repair and trade-in services offered for vintage gaming systems, pdb has temporarily replaced the Nintendo Game Cube on one of the demo TV's with a refurbished frontloader Nintendo Entertainment System.  The reaction to this old friend has been universally warm and unbelieving. "Wow, you guys have these still!  And it […]


Japan Is Not An Air Power, so says Flying and Popular Aviation's January 1941 issue. Oops! Keep that in mind next time somebody is telling you that Iran is years from a deployable bomb and therefore not a threat.

By Way of Explanation…

Sit down, let me tell you a story. Once upon a time, there was a young Fixer of electronic abacuses named pdb.  While he was not Schooled in the Fixing, he did fine work and was handsomely rewarded.  Soon, he married a fair maiden from a savage land far overseas and was able to purchase […]

Full of Myself

Ok, I'm back.  Phew.  Miss me? When I first started this blog, it was strictly for my own entertainment.  I made a deliberate effort to avoid the ego-driven dramas, kerfluffles and other idiocy that even then was appearing in the blogworld.  However, during my absence, a well intentioned but stupid leftist blogger asked me to […]
