For My Wife – Baby’s First iPod Mobile

I just thought this was a cute idea so I dived right in. Get a bunch of old dead iPods. Grab a inexpensive baby mobile and a few cheap cables and there you have it. Baby’s First iPod Mobile

And bonus points for the husband who also included the first iPod I bought my wife as well as the one I gave her for Valentines Day. ( the blue mini )

Life Goes On

So Katie and I are pretty much certain that we will be moving to CA later this december. It is kinda a nice thought but also pretty scary life changing stuff as well. In other news I am just randomly blathering because I told myself that I would update my blog more often. I really do need to spend some time writing more actual posts like the fact of this netbook experiment going on and what not.

Well more to come later I guess

Birthday weekend

So a happy birthday to me. I celebrated my birthday this past weekend. I went to dinner with a bunch of friends of mine. Good pasta. Then we came home and played a few games of Starcraft. I have never played an eight player game so I thought it would be fun to try it. Aside from all the whining and moaning it was fun and something new. I am beginning to learn that something new is a very important thing to have as you get older. 

 I am now 28. Ten years after graduating high school and here’s where I stand. I am married, I have a child on the way. I still don’t have a direction towards a career. And I spend way too much time just being lay and goofing off. I did however start biking to work on a regular basis and have lost about 20 pounds since i started. The first bike i bought was a Wal-Mart special and broke in a month. I bot a new GT Outpost which works a lot better. BTW for bikes in Fayetteville, AR I highly recommend Lewis and Clark Outfitters. Nicest bunch of people I have ever met, and excellent retail business. And believe me I am not easy to impress. 

  An update on the whole hackintosh thing. It failed. I managed o get 10.4.8 installed on a pentium 4 but could never get the ethernet to work. I got 10.5 installed once but it would always crash during the setup part. Needless to say i have given up. My friend John bought a machine in order to hack it and he has done it well. Of course he got online and ordered very specific parts that all have existing drivers. Since then we got a Mac mini for the home theater and it works very well. Nothing like playing NES emulators and Mario on an 80 inch projector. 

  I also swapped out the pc for a different one. I gave it to dan so he can play C and C 3. I tried the whole uBuntu linux thing and there is a reason why linux will not become mainstream anytime soon. Download package to format disks, download package to partition disks, etc etc. Very annoying. I put windows on it for now but then again Katie the wife got me a 1 TB drive for the network so I can finish ripping the movie collection. I am currently up to about 2.6 TB of media. Now if iTunes could only come up with a better interface for selecting which movies to put on the iPhone. 

Well that is about it for now. I will try to get some pics up at sometime if I ever get around to it.

Another year

Yeah so it is about that time. I turn 28 next week. I think I have to agree with my friend Stella that it has been a long year and it always makes you sit and reflect.

I still hate parts of my job. I am going to be a father. I haven’t done any creativity things like a comic or music in forever. I am most likely moving back to CA. Yeah well like I said, It’s been a long year.

My own little personal resolution hell as it were. Maybe I’ll reflect more when I’m in a better mood next week.

You know you’re a Geek when…

You find your wife pregnant, you do the whole lovey dovey stuff, and you can’t stop smiling. She asks “My aren’t you happy?” and to which I respond.. SPAWN MORE OVERLORDS

 

yup, we got a live one here
yup, we got a live one here

 

I love my wife dearly and I really do hope she’ll forgive me for that one

Dude, I hate Spam

So for like the last week I keep getting all of these spam comments on this Blog. And none of them reach you because they are all pre moderated but sheesh it’s annoying. 

 

Other then that life is going well. Katie has been gone on her department trip and comes home today. I miss her dearly but hey such is life. I have spent most of today cleaning so far because well it really needed to be done. Working out goes well. I bike about 14 miles a day to and from work. I also try to work out once or twice a week on top of it. Im now down to about 220 lbs. from 260 when I first moved to AR. So not to shabby. 

 

Now back to figuring out this whole Hackint0sh thing

Arggg

I hate it when you write a big long post and then it freezes on you. Long story shirt it has been a long week and I’m looking forward to moving and life changes. Too bad it’s kinda scary too.
