Good afternoon, in keeping with the latest revelation about this great site, I’d like to take some time to go over the some of the recent milestones this site has hit. This year marks the 10th year of publication for this wonderful blog.  It’s been quite a ride, we’ve had some pretty popular posts over … Continued

A Change of Direction

The Deadly Computer Blog is about to change directions.  This will turn into a serious blog, no more nonsense such as Alternate Histories.  No more World War 2 worship.  No more funny business. Instead, I will focus on long term, quality posts that will gain these valuable readers attention.  It’s ironic then that this post … Continued

The Land of The Free

America, the greatest country that ever existed.  Although much of the rest of the world doesn’t really think so.  Well, Fraser Nelson of The Spectator has done his own original research and determined that American ain’t half bad.  In fact, in ranking the 50 states for each one’s GDP per capita, most European nations don’t make … Continued

The History of Color

The above photo looks like an alternate view of swatches that you would set up in Photoshop because you like things more complicated then necessary.  However, those are photos of pages of a book that’s 272 years old.  In 1692 a Dutch artist by the name of A. Boogert started out simple, documenting colors and … Continued

Commercials

I don’t often praise commercials, but every so often a campaign comes along that is just excellent.  I’m talking about the Cadillac ELR Poolside ad. It’s not a new ad, in fact it’s been airing since The Olympics, but it’s getting new vigor of late due to a new Ford Ad that parodies that one: I … Continued

In case you haven’t heard, the price of a single share of stock in Google has broken $1,000.  It actually happened on Friday, but I wanted to wait it out the weekend and make sure it wasn’t a fluke thing.  Such a big difference then what it was a few years ago, as a company … Continued

12 years ago today a series of events started that forever changed the world. 19 terrorists hijacked 4 planes destroying 2 national landmarks, damaging another, and forever leaving a mark in a field in Pennsylvanian. An entire generation has grown up knowing only of a life after that horrible day. Today, take a moment of … Continued

Ziggy comics creator Tom Wilson passed away last week.  It’s sad, until you realize that for the past 24 years his son Tom Wilson Jr. has been writing the Ziggy comics that appear daily.  So in reality, it’s sad that the creator passed away, but there won’t not be Ziggy in the news paper tomorrow. … Continued

Lockheed Martin – the greatest company ever

Here is a nice writeup on everyone’s favorite Defense Contractor – Lockheed Martin. My regular paranoid self would normally say to be cautious, and start boycotting Lockheed Martin, afterall, if this article is to be believed, (and it is on the internet, it must be true), then Lockheed Martin is the equivalent of a company … Continued
