New Pics

I finally got my computer together and had an opportunity to add some new pics to the site. Most are from my trip back home in early November. Another set are from a farewell dinner we had for my friend Karis as soon as I got back.

There is some new video as well, but I need to compress them a little before I post them on the site. Holla later.

I forgot to mention that I am another step closer to completing my MythTV "Tivo" box. I just ordered the motherboard and case today and I am planning on picking up my wireless keyboard/mouse on the way home. After this I plan on picking up a new item every pay day till the end of the year. By that time I should have everything I need to get the project underway.

Actually I have co-worker who is attempting the same thing. He just told me today that the process is painless and he already has a number of the modules downloaded and functioning. So I guess I will find out soon enough.

Asus Pundit::Includes the motherboard, sound card, video card, DVI output, composite output, 4-in-1 card reader, and other junk

Gyration keyboard/mouse combo::Wireless RF keyboard and mouse which allows mouse movements in mid-air. Wild Stuff!!!!!!!!
Well once again I have been slacking in my blogging. But this time it is not my fault. My home PC has been out of whack for the past two weeks. I finally got fed up with it and decided to re-format all my drives and give it a fresh install of XP. Now apparently the problem has gotten worse. Now the PC won't even boot up. It likes to give me memory allocation and windows login errors. I really don't see how I did that with just a re-format and a windows re-install. All well, perhaps I will bring my laptop home tonight and try to work it out. But I really don't know where to start since I don't understand the problem.

Anyways, I made it back safely from my trip home to Texas. I got some great pictures of the high school football game as well as the Spurs game. It turned out that the ceremony for David Robinson was pretty nice. He deserves all of the recognition that he is getting.

I was also able to grab a few pictures from Karis' farewell dinner. It occured the same night that I made it back to Chicago, so I was pretty beat, but I am glad that I got to spend some time with her before she left for Indiana. I'm going to miss her, she was one of my best friends up here in Chicago. It is going to be alot different without her.

I'll try to post up some of the pics and update whenever I can bring my PC back from the twilight zone. If worst comes to worst I'll just bring in a zip disk to work and do some damage during a lunch break or something. Holla later.

Well once again I've been slacking on my blogs.

Not too much is new with me. I just got my first flu shot. It wasn't as dramatic as I thought it would be. There was pretty much nothing to it. I just had to stick around a few extra minutes after the shot to make sure I didn't blow up or anything from an allergic reaction.

I'm really looking forward to my trip back to Texas this weekend. I'm going to get a chance to check out my little sister being a cheerleader at a varsity football game and I am also going to go to a Spurs game where they will be retiring David Robinson's jersey. I'll be sure to bring back and post alot of pictures from both events.
