Tomorrow is a holiday here in the US, and since I’ve been extremely busy lately I figured I’d make a quick list of some of the great content on some of my favorite blogs, mostly from our very own Mysticgeek.

If you like time killing flash games to play during those boring conference calls, you really need to subscribe to his feed, because he posts about them all the time. Sure, it’s not quite as nostalgic as playing Oregon Trail, but doesn’t solitaire get a little boring after a while?

He’s also been covering his experience using the open-source Thunderbird mail client, and has written up plenty of how-to articles on the subject.





Over at Gmedia, a How-To Geek blog about home media and hobbies, he’s written an entire series on setting up a Windows Home Server in his media environment, well worth a look if you are interested in that type of thing. image



Included as a first in our Lazy Links roundup, my good friend Ross from SimpleHelp has written some great articles lately, my personal favorite being the one about playing NES games on your Smartphone… how cool is that?image

Playing Mario is a little tough on my phone, but I found Punch-Out and Zelda to actually play really well, and be fairly easy to control.

We’ll return to normal after the holiday, with another guest post on saturday and then some great registry hacks all next week.

Lowell Heddings, better known online as the How-To Geek, spends all his free time bringing you fresh geekery on a daily basis. You can follow him on if you'd like.
