Xaotik Designs - Mon, 02/23/2015 - 10:00am

Buffalo Arms made a name for themselves manufacturing machine guns for WWII.  Then later, someone in the company decided to find out how small they could make a .357 magnum pistol.   The resulting firearm, was the Buffalo Arms Model 1, a .357 magnum derringer. The manufactured about 10,000 of them before they closed up shop.  The […]

Supporting our troops

Xaotik Designs - Thu, 02/19/2015 - 10:00am

We’re supposed to support our troops. That’s what good Americans do, but what exactly does that mean?   I’ve talked to several vets about Chris Kyle.  Once they hear my opinion, pretty much every single one of them decides I’m an asshole.  You see, every soldier is a hero, that’s what we’re told right?  When a […]

So the second part of my trip was to Japan! Less than a three hour flight from South Korea, so I thought we should definitely take advantage of that. It was beautiful and amazing. I really am having a hard time believing I actually went on this trip at all! So surreal!

I'm not great at typing stories, so here are a variety of picture for you to enjoy. *_*

I went on an adventure to South Korea!

A few weeks ago I got to visit my friend Audrey in South Korea! She's been teaching English there for a couple of years now. Travis sent me on this adventure as an anniversary/Christmas/birthday present. So yea, he's pretty much the best husband ever!!
It was gorgeous. . .    
We ate a lot . . .
and had some drinks. . .
and saw some weird stuff. . .
Oh. . . and I met a hedgehog!
So yea. It was totally awesome! The second half of my trip, Audrey and I went to Japan. More on that tomorrow. 

Evilspeak – I watched it so you don’t have to

Xaotik Designs - Sun, 02/15/2015 - 10:00am

Evilspeak is a movie that shows what happens when you bully a computer nerd with access to ancient occult texts. It was also one of Anton LaVey’s favorite movies as he believed it was a good portrayal of Satanism. But mostly, Evilspeak is a bad movie. The movie opens on the Spanish coast sometime in […]

Product Review: Samsung Galaxy Discover S730G (mp3/Podcast Player)

Bryan Hill's Blog - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 5:20pm
A few weeks back, I was doing our grocery shopping as I do weekly. Something I do regularly during these excursions, is browse the clearance shelves. On this particular trip I found this prepaid cell phone at Walmart. It is a Samsung Galaxy Discover and it normally is prices around the $80 mark and  I was taken back as I notice the red tag...$10.00. I quickly checked the specs, it had Android, it had Wifi, and it was small. Those are three things that quickly qualified for a portable listening device (MP3/Podcast Player and more), not really a phone. So here are the specs of this device:
Processor: Single Core Arm Cortex-A5 800Mhz.System Memory: 512Mb RamBuilt in Storage: 4 Gb RamStorage Expansion: MicroSD, up to 32 GB.Battery: 1200 mAh
I won't go into the phone specs, because my intended use won't be using those technologies.
After thinking more about it, this came with a charger and a 4Gb Micro SD card. These two things alone are worth the $10. The added device is just a bonus, right???
This device preforms very well. I use Google Play Music, and create playlists especially for our Praise Band. So every week I change the set-list/playlist and this device automatically downloads the latest changes so I have it in the car or while I clean, or while I shop. I also use it for podcasts, for them I use PocketCasts from Shiftyjelly and have it automatically download the most recent podcast to the device so that I have it in the car, or while I clean or while I shop. As soon as this device sees my WiFi or any other WiFi (that is free) it updates and downloads from these services mentioned.
I place it into Airplane mode and then turn on the wifi when I want to get updates,  Doing this allows the battery to last a couple of days if I need it to. 
Anyways, that's what I do with cheap android phones, but I am kind of a geek. This can also be done with old phones as well.

Product Review: Samsung Dishwasher (DW80F600UTB)

Bryan Hill's Blog - Tue, 01/27/2015 - 6:30pm

We recently purchased a Samsung Dishwasher from Lowe's. It's features range from the stainless steel tub, to it's hard food disposer, it has an adjustable top rack. It comes dressed in all black, and while in operating mode it comes in under 50 decibel at 48. It is quieter then our last Whirlpool which was only 2 plus years old. We appreciate it's Sanitation cycle, which eliminates essentially any need to dry any of the dishes as they come out. (I can't say the same for the Whirlpool that is going to the scrap  yard in a few weeks.) I also enjoy using the delay wash cycle, for when showers are being taken directly after dinner. The dishes are clean by morning....

The price was under $500 at $472.81 which actually was more then $100 dollars less then the piece of scrap we replaced). We did not purchase their suggested install kit, but did need an elbow to fit our supply line to the dishwasher. I'm not sure why that connection is not a standard between manufacturers???? The installation was easy, with the help of a second person.

Model Number: DW80F600UTB
Price: $472.81 (Lowe's were running an appliance sale, they usually run $649)

I would recommend this product to family and friends.

American Protesters Suck

I took the love of my life out for a nice vacation for her birthday.  It wasn’t until we made it to DC however, that she remembered her birthday is also the anniversary of Roe V. Wade.  As such, we were met by an onslaught of protesters filling the National Mall. Thankfully, they were mostly […]
