Check out these amazing “AVERAGE JOE” t-shirts


Use the T-Shirt button above or click RIGHT HERE to head to the Zazzle store.

Just the first of many, these t-shirts are made to order in our zazzle store and feature 2 designs, one more classic looking, another more cartoony and are customizable for your taste.Basic version starts at 15.95, and discount codes are usually available right on the site.

Big thanks to Diana Davis for help with the classic version of the shirt, helping me get the image, and in both designs I received feedback from her, and Nerdrahtio contributors Tom and Dave.

Zazzle does the printing and set the cost. I do get a small portion (less than $1.75, actual amount varies per shirt) It’s a very small amount, and I actually could not set it lower than I did on the site. My goal is not to make a net profit, just to be closer to breaking even on the site. That portion will be used to cover audio hosting, website fees, as well as cover expenses already put toward the site (and due to some issues when switching to the Nerdrahtio name at the end of last year, expenses where much more than usual.)

Thanks for checking it out, these will be available indefinitely on our zazzle store, but that doesn’t mean you should wait. Zazzle usual as a special of some sort going, take advantage it if you dig the shirt.  Got feedback ? comment below, or hit us up @


Meet the Blue Board: Happy New Year, now with slightly updated design.

blueboardNAlthough I enjoyed our previous “chalk board” look, in the spirit of moving forward, and the new year, I thought it was a great time to go ahead with the logo changes I have planed since the name change.

Soon you will notice variations of the banner on rotation each time you visit or refresh the page.

I’ve had a great vacation, and I hope to be catching up with things I intended to post, SOON.


Menu Reconstruction

5by5nDue to internal changes, the Podcast link is temporarily dead. Stay tuned for it’s return.

Forums have temporarily been removed until I can insure  no one has inappropriate access.

You might also notice some other menu changes, including another dead link. I apologize, but I’m making things more tidy and things will be back to working order soon.



We have added a blog roll! Come and check it out and tell us if you want to be on it

5by5nit’s been on my to do list for a long while, but now I’ve finally taken the time to add a “Blog Roll” to the site. Plenty of links to good places to read, learn form, discuss at, watch etc.

If you would like to add us to your blog roll (if you have one) let me know and I’ll add you. If you have added the .com in the past under our previous name ( I’d appreciate an update to the new one as the old one won’t be active forever, and of course let me know so I can add you to the blogroll!

Know something else, not even your site, that really deserves some attention on the list?

let us know. -Sam

Additional Domain Name added, and additional site updates!

nerdnationminilogo To further demonstrate my intent to cover a wider range of nerd topics and in cooperation with Nerdiversity 101 podcast, I announced a name change awhile back, now you can view us at the additional url, . In additional I have further tweaked our new logo,and added it to the message boards, which have a new url as well (just click on the forums link above that route still works.)

I have also continued to tweak the forums as I learn the software and have added some previous less trafficked forums back, but as sub forums so the forums look a little more tidy, but still have plenty of places for discussion. Please continue to let me you know what you think.  I have more free time than the past couple of months and hope to further improve the site.

Minor Update:

Of course it should be noted that any previous link to the forums will now no longer work and I will work to update some of the past stories, especially those who still get hits or i refer back too, to a correct link on the forum!


Site Update: Some posting difficulty

I’m experiencing some difficulty with some pre-schedualed posts, if you came to the site because of a twitter or facebook link, or briefly saw an incomplete article, or saw a complete article that disappeared, I apologize, and will fix it shortly.


My Internet cable has literally been yanked out of my house

You did read that write, weather and poor installation so my cable Internet ripped off my house and into my neighbors yard . I am updating from my phone at the moment. I will back up and going by the weekend with reviews of mu Kraven, Hulk, proffesor x and the RAHC guide book coming very soon

As well as links to things like a new firefly table top rpg !
