The move is complete. We’re now in our new home! Still living primarily out of boxes, but that’s changing each day. I’ve never been so sore for so long but no matter how tired I am, there’s a thousand other things that have to get done. It’s a bit overwhelming. The new place is nice. It’s much larger than our previous home which brings with it some new challenges. Things that used to be 10’ away are now a hike across the house (First world problems, anyone?). However, this place has storage out...

Then the temporary server move was successful. Had to move my box to a secure, undisclosed location for the week while I continue packing up for the move. It’s a physical box that I’ve owned since the early 2000’s and it’s a Frankenstein of a beast – a mishmash of spare parts that I’ve cobbled together to make a ‘server’. At some point, I really need to quit this as there is little need for me to be a server guy any more, but that’s not today. For now, I can continue to not blog at a new...

Only missed twice! (both glances off the frame, nothing more than cosmetic). Been sitting in my closet collecting dust for the past 2 years, I figured I’d offer it here on ze blog if anyone is interested. $50 + shipping and it’s all yours.

My drive crashed, as did my backup drive. Talk about being born under the wrong sign. I did recover all important data. All my music I wrote, documents, pictures, etc. are safe and sound. I have another backup drive running and multiple copies of the data. I’m going to have to reinstall a crap-ton (metric, not imperial) of apps, but so be it. Some of my sample libraries are corrupt, but I’ll just have to deal with that. The old hard drive is in the computer but it has a tendency to just...

But rather than play it last night, I was busy trying to salvage my PC. The 1Tb drive where I keep all my music & apps is dying. It’ll stick at 100% utilization with a 10 to 15 second response time. So I went to back it up on the external Tb. Which is dead. Dead, dead, dead, dead. Then I lost all my RSS feeds, so I have no blogs to read. I have another external TB on the way. Should be here tonight. Talking with the IT guys at work to see what drives they recommend (or if there are any I...

I’ve not picked her up yet from Virgil, but here’s a few pics to whet your whistle

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. My Grandmother’s cancer is taking its toll on her. She no longer eats, sleeps most of the time, and the nurse has said that her body is now in the process of shutting down. So, I’m driving up to South Carolina tomorrow to say my goodbyes. With the move in just over 2 weeks, this would be the last time I could possibly make it up there and I’m fairly sure she’s not...

TMI
Just so you all know I’m alive, here are a few updates. This Saturday from 10AM to Noon at Ballast Point Park, Florida Carry is having as many of our members as we can show up for our Open Carry fishing event. If you’re within the sound of my sultry voice, I’d love for you to drop by for support. We have started packing for the move. Our closing date got pushed out by 6 days, which sucks, but oh well. This is taking up a lot of time, and I’d rather just go ahead and pack everything rather than...

And I’m not going to change that today or any time soon.
