New Blog




Over the past 6 years I’ve written well over 300 posts on my original blog, The Philosophical Geek. As I was creating AndyMercer.net, I decided I wanted my blog to be incorporated and housed in the same location. The only question was, do I just start over, or do I copy all 300+ posts over to here.

I ended up going through the list and cutting it down to about 75 posts that I think are still relevant and at least semi- up to date. Nearly all web and coding related posts made it over, along with my political/ethical musings and poetry. Most of what didn’t consisted of funny pictures of videos, along with music.

All reposts have a label at the top with a link to the original post. You might notice some changes though. As I read each one and reformatted to match the new blog, many typos, broken links, and missing pictures jumped out at me. I’ve done a major house cleaning on everything, so they likely don’t match the original posts word for word.

A note about TekGoblin

When I was writing for Tekgoblin.com, I’d post the first paragraph of the article to my own blog, along with a link to the full article on TekGoblin. I’m not sure how long that site is going to be around, though, so I have instead chosen to simply post the entire articles instead of snippets, with a link back to the original TekGoblin article instead of to the snippet on my old blog.

    Hello Andy. I just discovered your blog and wondered if you have any updates on your blog about 4k vs 1080P television screens. The information was great and very helpful but is now a couple of years old.

      Are you talking about the TekGoblin article I wrote a while back? Its been a while, I only vaguely remember it.

        Thanks for getting back to me. Yes, that is the one. I just wondered if you have thought about revisiting the topic again. Maybe there has not been enough change to warrant the effort. I have been out of the country teaching at a university in Bangkok for a few years and am amazed at all the current changes, particularly in the video area. I will be purchasing a new flat screen soon and am guessing that 4K is worth the extra dollars over 1080P. I realize from your article that categorizing them this way is not accurate, but it’s what the industry is still using.
        Appreciate any thoughts or recommendations.

          In that post, I did write about 4K, and about OLED. Not a lot has changed since then. 4K is slowly coming down in price, but there’s not a lot of 4K content out there. For future proofing, it’s probably worth it at this point to go 4K, but it depends on whether or not you can afford it.
