Nerd Lunch Holiday Shopping Guide

By | 2017-03-17T00:59:03+00:00 December 7th, 2010|Categories: Article|Tags: |2 Comments

Seems every year we've done a post giving you some ideas for what you could get that special nerd in your life for Christmas. This year, I thought I'd do that again. However, this year, instead of listing out some things you can get at Walmart or Amazon, I thought I'd give you some ideas [...]

The Cockroach of Bacons

By | 2017-03-17T02:54:11+00:00 June 6th, 2010|Categories: Article|Tags: , , |3 Comments

It probably isn’t surprising that someone who writes on a blog called Nerd Lunch is on the Think Geek mailing list. Some of their stuff is even too nerdy for me, but I usually get a chuckle out of a few things in every catalog. This time around my eye gravitated towards this: Tac Bac: [...]

Dirty Dave’s Trip to Gen Con

By | 2017-03-17T03:03:05+00:00 August 30th, 2009|Categories: Article|Tags: , , |1 Comment

Note from Jeeg: The granddaddy of all role playing conventions, Gen Con, took place a couple weeks back. Our nerd buddy, Dirty Dave (or “The Dave” as CT and I like to call him), made the trip to Indy and filed this first ever Nerd Lunch correspondent’s report. This was my second year consecutively to [...]

The Internet on Your TV, More or Less

By | 2017-03-17T02:55:14+00:00 July 24th, 2009|Categories: Article|Tags: , |0 Comments

A couple months back I followed CT into the realm of HDTV. I ended up with a Samsung 6 series LCD TV. It’s a great TV, but it has one feature that is half-baked: the Internet@TV widgets. The basic premise is that you can press a button on the remote and bring up a range [...]

The Nerd Store: Medieval Times

By | 2017-03-17T02:55:14+00:00 June 29th, 2009|Categories: Article|Tags: |0 Comments

Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament is a fantasy RPG nerd’s idea of dinner theatre. Instead of fettuccine alfredo and a performance of Five Guys Named Moe, you get a roasted meats and sides to eat with your bare hands, a cardboard crown, and an arena filled with jousting and sword fighting. How great is that? [...]

Welcome to the future of television

By | 2017-03-17T02:55:16+00:00 March 5th, 2009|Categories: Article|Tags: , |2 Comments

Those are Radio Shack 15-1874 rabbit ears that I picked up over the weekend. Not quite the 21st century vision of Philip K. Dick, but, unbelievably, it’s the best way I can get TV. Not counting the duplicate channels from the multiple TV markets in range, I can pick up about 35 digital channels on [...]
