Leverage

Is anyone else watching this??? This is a great show and prominently features a techno geek! I love it when that happens. He and I have a lot in common, apart from computers and hacking. We both love to move around a lot but want to put down roots, we both want to live in the bat cave and we both need orange soda to work.

For those who haven’t seen the show. It’s about a team of criminals who work to help people that the legal system has failed because the bad guy has more money or connections and the system is corrupt.

The leader of the team is a former insurance adjuster (I TOLD you they were all criminals) who sets up the con with the rest of the team which includes a woman who is a grifter (confidence woman), a military retrieval specialist (hit man), a young woman who is a rather gifted thief and the hacker dude.

If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out. It’s well worth your time.

Where do you live?

12 02 2010

A question out there for fellow Techno-Geeks: Where do you live?

No, I don’t mean your address (I’m not some whacked out cyber-stalker) I mean your general geographic location. Now if you want to include you city, that’s great. I’m interested in the type of place you live, the geology, climate urban v/s rural…..that kind of thing.  Here is what I’m looking for, I’ll use myself as an example:

I live in a small rural town in extreme southern Illinois. The population of my town is roughly 8,000 (during the autumn festival and on Sundays during church). I’m about 1 1/2 hours from St. Louis, Missouri.

Here are a couple of photos of my local area:

I’ve actually been known to write from the hump of the camel above using my laptop and 3G.
