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.
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.
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.
We are just about to take off for a weeks vacation in Virgina. Be back in a week.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
Not only is today Cinco de Mayo, but it is also No Pants Day. Drop them if you have them.
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.
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.
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.
Chris Pirillo hit the nail on the head. When is the RIAA going to figure this out?
Why I hate sony.
Back in the my high school days I loved the Anthrax album Attack of the Killer B’s. I was never a huge Anthrax fan, but I loved that album. We would mosh to “Startin’ up a Posse” and “Bring The Noise” before football games. “Bring the Noise” was probably one of the first rap/rock songs. It was Anthrax with Public Enemy. Back then I wanted to hear more of that type of music, but none of it was around. By the time rap/rock stuff finally came out it was all the lame Limp Bizkit crap. I still love to listen to “Bring the Noise” every now and then. Here is a slow folk rock version that kicks ass, but kicks it a little slower.
You know, I really need to get Attack of the Killer B’s on CD. I don’t even know if I have a cassette player around here to play my old tape.
So a little bit about yesterday’s post. Wednesday at work a few coworkers were talking about surgeries and getting epidurals. I got woozy and fainted. I fell flat on my face. I got a nasty rug burn on the site of my face and I think I got a minor concussion. I was in a fog the whole day yesterday and had the worst headache ever. I am feeling much better today, but my face is quite a bit uglier than usual.
