Dominos – For your pasta, shame on you

Given how bad Pizza Hut has become, Dominos has been my go-to. I like the pizza and breadsticks, but what I don't like is getting ripped off.

One of my kids prefers pasta so we order with every pizza night, but when we do, we get this. every. time:

Example 1
Example 2

Dominos can put as much pasta in .... [Click here to read the rest of this post]

Did you know you can lift the armrest on the aisle seats on American? You should.

I saw a flight attendant do it and had to know the secret. It turns out there’s a button hiding in the “armpit” of the armrest that let’s you life the thing out of the way making boarding and departing far easier (and less snaggy). It seems like this would be more common knowledge, but since it isn’t I wanted to spread the word.

Rather than post pictures, here’s a .... [Click here to read the rest of this post]

Today, I Solve The Airline Industry

American Airlines

It seems that the Airlines haven't managed to hire enough problem-solvers to handle the various issues they face on a daily basis. They suffer from slow boarding, irritable customers and employees, and, of course, reduced profits due to the above. Since I have about 20 minutes of time available, I thought I'd lend a hand ....

American Airlines Has Too Much Baggage

American Airlines

As usual with any airline that's not Southwest, boarding is a pain. People rush the line, desperate not to be the last on the plane and have to search for overhead space that might not be near their seat. That is, that's how it used to be.

Moving from inconvenience to outright abuse, American Air .... [Click here to read the rest of this post]

Detective Pikachu: A total win for fans and non-fans alike

Despite being quite the average geek, I've never been that much into Pokemon. It's not because I don't like it, but rather because it became popular when I was in undergrad and had a lot less time to devote to shows, games, etc. Still, I've always loved the characters and went into the movie with an open ....

Q: How does my first Pizza Hut pizza rate after a six-year haitus? A: Not good.

Well... that's no good.
(Image copyright Jeremy Duffy)

Several years back, we noticed that my son was having an adverse reaction to Pizza Hut pizza (he puked every night after eating their food) so we stopped buying it. Since then we've been primarily a Domino's family and it's been fine, but I remember really liking Pizza Hut once and when a new store moved into .... [Click here to read the rest of this post]

Sony will let you Play the EU version of a game, but won’t tell you it’s incompatible until it’s too late

Horizon Zero Dawn - Easily one of the greatest games I've ever played.
(See online!)

I first became interested in this game when I heard of the concept: bows and spears versus big robot dinosaurs. There's clearly much more to it than that, but I never regretted it playing it. Besides beautiful graphics, and exceptional gameplay, it has one of the best stories I've ever seen. .... [Click here to read the rest of this post]

Why buying USPS insurance on your packages is probably a really bad idea

Do you really know the terms? Can you actually collect?
(Image copyright Jeremy Duffy)

As with most insurance deals, the odds are greatly stacked against you. I know this. You probably knew it. And yet, we've probably both agreed to buy insurance on shipped items at least once or twice… and why not? The insurance prices are fairly cheap are presented as being so straightforward: ....

Add context option to open file in administrator level Notepad

It works in Win 10 too!
(Image used under: Creative Commons 3.0 [SRC])

One of the more irritating oversights in Windows 7 is that when you open configuration files from Windows Explorer (txt, ini, etc), they open in Notepad as expected, but when you go to save, only then do you realize that you didn't have admin rights and your work is wasted.

Sick of .... [Click here to read the rest of this post]

DLC

DLC or "Downloadable Content" generally refers to addons you can purchase for games on computers or game systems. Sometimes this can be fair in terms of price vs value, but they can also be predatory.
