Found a place to fill out brackets and just track how bad you do. I filled mine out and I think it is fun. I am too cheap to put money on this and I do not follow college basketball at all until this time of year. But go check out the link and have some...

This year in my IT league for Fantasy Football the guy that is the commissioner is out of town for our draft and some how I was nominated to be the commissioner and run the draft.

Football is back and the regular season is about to start. I am excited about it but I do not know about you but I am pretty frustrated with all professional sports. When the lockout occurred I would have been fine with no season and even better if the league would have said your fired to all the...

A while ago I mentioned that I was doing a fantasy football league for the first time. It has been fun but I have found that I am not good at it at all. I am in 11th place in the league right now and that...

Tomorrow I have my first Fantasy Football Draft. I got talked into joining a league with my fellow IT group. I enjoy watching football but I am not one to keep track of stats and even players, unless they are on a team that I really like. So I am going into my draft blind so to speak and will...

I just purchased a Windows Home Server Device after much debate over what NAS solution would best fit my needs at home. After looking at multiple devices I found that none of them really seemed to do everything that I wanted and do it all well. After doing a lot of research I did find that a...
