I am a full-time software engineer with an interest in gadgets and the many technologies making them possible. I also enjoy investing and swing trading. I write for my friends: fellow programmers, IT administrators, and those wise ones who learned to benefit from technology without dedicating their life to it.

Awesome vs awe-inspiring.
It's too bad that the word awesome has become awfully diluted. Even its intensifiers are abused and don't add meaning.
Fortunately awe-inspiring still has its dignity: is longer, harder to say, and thus is not yet overused.
