I LOVE New York City

  (MORE TO COME) Pictures taken whilst living in the big apple

Only in America

  (MORE TO COME) Some random things I have noticed whilst living in NYC to date

So, why the f*ck do I not have any money?

  The extravagant lifestyle by making it rain in strip clubs or showing respect to your dead homies my pouring Cristal on the floor always falls short from reality. Budgeting isn't something I'd label myself with. I've always believed that budgeting software such as Microsoft Money 2006 was a big pile of coding-b*llsh*t with the sole intention to make profit. Furthermore, the domain of this software was limited to your localhost meaning that in order for Microsoft Money to understand your budget, you'd have to manually type all of your expenses... though what's the point of that? "I know what I spent Microsoft Money, I just bloody told ya!!!".

How to reveal a stored password from a website

  You're not stupid, you know you shouldn't store facebook passwords on communal computers just incase you get 'facebook raped', which I believe sounds too crude even to my standards. Before social media, taunting someone that they 'got raped' was a horrific thing to say, now its seems completely acceptable. Facebook is now allowing API's to authenticate though there's no enforced regulations over the internet nor a mutual handshake between facebook and the host presenting the login... Meaning there's nothing stopping me (apart from the ethnic considerations) to construct a quasi interface saying 'log into facebook' though all your doing is giving me your credentials, cheers gullible easy person, time to be 'facebook raped'!

Finally, Technical Confessions.com has arrived!!

  ARCHIVE - Welcome to my blog and to be honest, it's about bloody time!

How much good or bad luck can someone have?

  My better-half has recently adopted the word 'YOLO' (You Only Live Once), which is overly-used by the younger generation doing dumb stuff. So with this in mind, the girlfriend and I 'YOLO'd' by spontaneously taking a trip to Atlantic City for the weekend.

I'm back - July 2013!

  It's been a while since I last blogged. It's probably been around 10-12 weeks. I could calculate it though I cannot be arsed to look at my last blog post date. There's been a number of reasons why I have not took too much of an interest. Perhaps the novelty on blogging on my own website has warn off. Maybe I've been busy dealing with life's personal problem or it could be suggested that I've been busy on other factors that's been placed on my lap in recent times.
