Cozy Coupe Review

What can we say? We’ve known the Cozy Coupe for years, but now it’s gotten a total makeover. In the past, the Cozy Coupe was only offered in one color scheme, the very familiar two-tone yellow over red. This ubiquitous look was seen over and over again, found in every suburban neighborhood, as well asRead More…

Fat Lorenzo’s 5600 Cedar Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55417 (612) 822-2040 Here’s a South Minneapolis classic. Fat Lorenzo’s. Anyone that lives in the Nokomis area knows Fat Lorenzo’s.

Ted Cook’s 19th Hole Barbecue 2814 East 38th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55406 (612) 721-2023 If you’ve never eaten here, you must stop by and give it a try. It’s easily my most favorite rib shack of the bunch on this page. It’s not a restaurant though, only to go.  But the ribs are some ofRead More…

Blue Yeti Mic review

I bought the Blue Yeti to simplify my life. First of all, I have a background in sound, having run concert sound for various types of gigs, ranging from bar bands, to conventions for 2000 people.

Sitecloud hosting review

I joined Sitecloud in December after reading good reviews of the service, and just want to summarize my 2 months with them. The first week was fine.

Microsoft Outlook 2007 Slow Problem Resolved

I’ve been dealing with a slow Outlook 2007 for about a year now. By slow, here’s what I mean: when clicking on Send/Receive, the process takes perhaps 4-5 minutes to download 75 messages totalling about 400k. I have high speed internet, and have spent much time troubleshooting Outlook. My PST file size is 300MB, notRead More…

Microsoft Office Problem

I recently was having a problem with PowerPoint 2007 running very slowly. A switch from slide to slide in the editing view, would take anywhere from 4-20 seconds. Just typing a word would take 5 seconds per word!  This was getting very annoying. There are several good suggestions from others in the community about loadingRead More…Read More…

Microsoft Office vs Open Office

Is Open Office a viable alternative to Microsoft Office? The short answer is maybe. If you don’t need to share files with anyone else, and you only generate documents for yourself, then Open Office may work for you. I just recently installed it to get around a Microsoft problem. But unfortunately, it is not compatibleRead More…Read More…
