    Looking for a new phone

    Fellow CFers, I'm looking at buying a new phone to replace my current Galaxy Nexus (I'll be traveling overseas and the Galaxy Nexus doesn't have any GSM radios so it isn't global-ready). At the moment it's pretty much between the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One, since those are both global and on...

    New Dubuque Brewery on Kickstarter

    Saw a poster around town for this last weekend: Jubeck New World Brewing Co. CSB by Jay Jubeck — Kickstarter I'm glad to see they made their goal, although I'm not sure what exactly that amount of money gets them. I think it'd be great for Dubuque to have its own local craft brews...
