First round of tests done – Update on Tash’s Health

Posted by on Jun 19, 2015 in akaLIFE, Family, Featured, Life in General | 2 comments

UPDATE TIME! Okay. So, just got back from the Doctors office with Tash and here’s what we know. Her tests all came back healthy save for a few. The first thing that I want to note is that we absolutely LOVE Dr. Flattery at The Center for Integrative Medicine. He was recommended by a friend of ours and we couldn’t be happier with his approach. Anyhow, this is what we’ve found: The tests that were performed on her Thyroid came back “normal”, though slightly higher than he would like to see. So there isn’t anything that needs focused on here. For now. This is a good thing, as we have...

I’ve Got A Favor To Ask…

Posted by on May 5, 2015 in akaLIFE, Featured | 0 comments

This is hard to write. Not only because it concerns my lovely wife and the illness that has plagued her for just over a year now, but also because, well, quite simply it’s humbling. For those that have not been keeping up with us and our plight, my wife, Natasha has been… well… she’s sick. Really sick…. since April 1, 2014. As of this moment as I’m writing this, it has been 13 months and a few days of her dealing with a crippling headache, brain fog, minor memory loss, nausea, vomiting, chronic fatigue, skin sensitivities, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, poor digestive system… and that is just to name...

Oddzuki’s Weekly TV ReCap! 10/12/2014

Posted by on Oct 13, 2014 in Featured, TV Shows | 0 comments

I made a post on Facebook earlier today and it started a pretty good discussion soooo I’m going to start a weekly TV Rundown of shows that I watch and shows that I keep hearing about that I need to catch up on. No particular day order… just the ones that come to mind. I encourage suggestions for shows to watch, shows to revisit, or input into what you thought of particular episodes. Doctor Who: Series 8 Episode 8 – Mummy On The Orient Express: I think Peter Capaldi is doing a fantastic job as The Doctor thus far. The episodes keep getting better and better. Nice strong run...

A Story About A Girl…

Posted by on Jul 17, 2014 in akaLIFE, Family, Featured, Life in General | 3 comments

March 30, 2014, my wife began to squint a bit while sitting next to me. Our typical routine each night is to spend some time together, side by side, sitting on the couch… typically with laptops open and something interesting on the TV. Little did I know that this evening would be the last night for a long time, that she would be able to have a clear mind. It’s been a little over 3.5 months since my wife got sick. Looking back at our facebook streams, the morning of March 30th, she had made pancakes… bacon and eggs. We shared a pot of coffee and it was an...

Heartbleed “Hit-List”

Posted by on Apr 10, 2014 in Featured, Geek Culture, Web Applications | 0 comments

For those that are wondering what the hell Heartbleed is and why it’s a “thing” right now. Well, long and short of it, directly from the informational website: The Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs). The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software....

Too Many Toolbars (And why you should get rid of them)

Posted by on Mar 30, 2014 in computer help, Geek Culture, Software | 0 comments

Some of the most easy “tells” when a client brings in a PC to our office because it’s “running slow” or “too many popups” or annoying ads is the appearance of multiple toolbars. Toolbars, for those that aren’t sure what I’m talking about, are add-ons that are installed with a plethora of software suites available for download. Even some of the trusted (and Oddzuki recommended) pieces of software (like AVG Free, Spybot, etc) will prompt you to install a toolbar. Understandably, for these companies to be able to offer their basic and mid level services for free, they’ve partnered with the larger companies to be able to turn a...

I Believe In Evolution

Posted by on Feb 16, 2014 in akaLIFE, Family, Featured, Life in General | 2 comments

Personal evolution is a wonderful thing. It can be difficult,  frightening, and weird. Personal evolution can also be a joyous occasion. Over the past month, I’ve been privy to witnessing the evolution of someone that I love dearly. No… that’s not the right way to phrase it. I’ve been privy to witnessing the evolution of someone that is literally the most important thing in my life. There, that’s better. I’m talking about my wife. Tash and I have been married for just over 12 years and, as with a lot of couples, things become routine. You find yourself talking about the same things, laughing about recurring situations and getting...
