Not dead yet

I am not dead. In fact there were all sorts of things I was going to blog about this weekend, but for some strange reason I couldn’t access any website on my server all weekend. It sucked, I was going to do all sorts of stuff, and now I can’t because I have to go to work. Oh, well.

Breaking a bad habit

I am trying to break one of my bad habits. I have been a nail biter for as long as I can remember. In fact I can’t remember the last time I cut my nail with a fingernail clipper. They are driving me crazy now. They seem too long, yet they are still pretty short. It feels weird as I type and yesterday I got dirt under my nails planting tomato plants. I don’t ever remember getting dirt under my nails. They were always to short. Wish me luck.

In a music video

So at the last concert we went to in the cities Hawthorne Heights recorded a video. It was pretty cool watching them record the video. I did see camera men in the lobby of the Xcel Energy Center before the concert, but didn’t know what there were there for. It’s pretty cool watching a video knowing you were there. Sadly my ugly mug isn’t in the video. You can check it out here if you wanna see it.

What I did today

Well, I got my new DVD-Rs to work. I had to flash my drives firmware with a hacked version, but it is working now. Now my wireless router took a shit. I was on the phone with D-Link for about an hour trying to get it to work. They finally agreed that it took a dump and gave me a RMA number. So hopefully I should have a new router by this weekend. I am glad I kept my old router though. It would be a pain in the ass to only have internet on one of my computers for a week.

Ghost hunters

I don’t believe in ghosts. My wife does. She is always trying to get me to believe in ghosts. She is hook on Ghost Hunters on the SciFi network. I think that show is a fake although I haven’t really watched it much. One of the places we visited on Vacation was an old civil war hospital. It is supposedly the 8th most “haunted” place in the US. So of course my wife was taking pictures like crazy trying to catch an “orb”. Well, she thinks she got one. I think it’s just a strange light reflection. You be the judge.

Back from vacation

Well, I am back from vacation. We had a great time and it actually felt good to be unplugged for a week. Now I got a ton of catching up to do. I will post more about the vacation later.

The Action Design

So if you were reading my blog back before my hiatus you know that I am a huge Tsunami Bomb fan. It’s sad that Tsunami Bomb is no more, but M’s new band The Action Design is sounding pretty good. They are in the process of making their first album. I have been keeping up with them on their MySpace page. They just posted a new song and it sounds good. I so can’t wait for their album to come out.

How much are you worth?

So over at Leapfish you can find out how much your domain is worth. I am not sure how accurate it is, but it is saying I could get $17,000 for tinkr.net. I wish. I would sell it in a second for $5000. So for $5000 tinkr.net could be yours and a new MacBook will be mine.

MacBook plan

So I was thinking. If each one of my readers send me $500 I could get myself a new MacBook. Just $500 and you can help a buddy out. That’s only like 100 coffees or two tanks of gas. Quit drinking coffee and start riding your bike then send your money to mace so he can sit on his ass with another computer.

 Sound like a deal? No? Oh well, it sounded good to me.

Arrrug!

Nothing it working right today. The new DVD-Rs aren’t working in our DVD players, my router keeps locking up, and I have to work tonight. I need a vacation…oh wait, I am leaving for vacation on Friday. I can’t wait.

MacBook is finally out

The new Mac that I have been waiting to come out for months just came out today. The new MacBook is a more affordable Mac laptop. Now I just gotta talk the wife into letting me get another computer. We are heading to Virgina for a weeks vacation on Friday. This would be perfect to take along, but I won’t be able to get it in time if I ordered it and wont have time to stop at the nearest Apple store which is 4 hours away. Oh well, I gotta get the wife to agree first anyways. Any idea on how?

Cheap coffee

So last weekend the wife went garage saleing. She got some good deals. She picked up a Coffee/Espresso/Cappuccino Machine for $1. It was missing a few parts so I ordered them for around $20. So for under $25 we got a kick ass Coffee Machine that I have seen online for over $150. So far I have had three cappuccinos today. They are so good and only getting better with practice.

It

Ok, I had to do it.

Speaking of Second Life. Hanging out outside of Adam Curry’s Castle is pretty cool. I have met a lot of cool people, podcasters, and internet celebrities in SL. The other day I ran into Eric Rice and Robert Scoble. I also met podcasters Victor Cajiao and Airdrie from Lipgloss and Laptops. Airdrie even mentioned me on her podcast. It’s more of a girly podcast, but it was still cool to hear my name mentioned. Oh, and my name mace isn’t from Star Wars, it is just a nick name that is short for my real name.

Shhhhh

So it’s been dead around here lately. I haven’t been doing much. Just working in real life and playing in Second Life. It will be ever quieter in a week. We are going on vacation in Virgina. We are leaving next Friday. I should be fun. We don’t have any plays. We are just playing it by ear. Should be a good time.

Abracadabra

So, David Copperfield was pretty cool last night, and guess what? I got picked to go on stage. We had pretty good seats. We were in the 20th row or so. Just sitting there waiting for the show to start and this guys walks up to me and said he works for David and wants to know if I want to help out with a trick. I said sure, what the hell. I was a little nervous, but when the hell am I ever going to get the chance to be on stage with David freakin’ Copperfield. So they moved us to seats in the 4th row, and took me back stage and showed me what I had to do. I just basically had to hold a bucket and David pulled a duck out of it. Not a big deal, but pretty fucking cool.

I’m not dead yet

My blog was down most of the day. My host was experiencing a DOS attack. I didn’t have much to blog about today anyways. I spent most of the day in Second Life. If you wanna look for me in Second Life my name is Mace Blabbermouth.

Well, Gotta get ready to go out. We are seeing David Copperfield tonight. Should be a good time.

Hocus Pocus

Ever since I was a little kid I enjoyed magic. When I was a kid I was always performing magic tricks for friends and family. I thought they were cool, but they probably sucked. I try to go to every magic show I can. They don’t come around to often. One of the few reason I would want to go to Vegas would be to see Penn & Teller. Well, tomorrow David Copperfield is coming to Fargo. We bought the $55 floor tickets. A little spendy. We could have gotten $28 bleacher seats, but we figured this would probably be our only chance to see him so we went all out. It should be a good show. This will be the first time seeing a big name magician.
