Site Status

January 20, 2006

What the?

Yeah that’s right…I’m going to be hosting this service myself (at least for how long I can), plus some other inititives will be taking place so I’m placing the server on Linux instead of Windows. There were some MySQL queries that I had attempted that didn’t go by on Windows and with PHP5….so I’m going to give it a shot with Linux and we’ll see where we can get. If you’d like some development space…let me know.


So as it turns out…

January 17, 2006

As it turns out I didn’t find a login script…I completely changed what I was going to do and I started a completely different site. still has no name…no logo…just a service I want to see how far and fat I can take it. However it has been awhile since I posted anything on my blog so I felt it was time for an update. I guess I’ll use this as kinda a changelog as well. Back to work on the site.


January 1, 2006

OK, So I finally just gave up on trying to learn the whole PHP and MySQL stuff and decided to go with finding myself a script that I can use. I was able to and with a little bit of tweaking manage to sneak it onto my site. If anyone reads this site…check it out. All you can do is register and login but oh how we must come from humble beginnings.

BTW: To everyone out there…Happy New Year!

Getting more blue, LOL

December 25, 2005

I know I know I said I was going to get away from having so much blue in my life. So I decided to give a browser that I really like (besides AOL Explorer) a fighting chance. As it turns out I really REALLY like it and so I’m going to spend some time dedicated to it for a little. That being said I’m going to hop on over to Flock and see what kind of trouble I can start 😉

So far those guys have really impressed me. They say first impressions are lasting impressions, that being the case they’ve got Chris Messina over on there team and I’m really happy to talk to him again…even if just for a little. Chris and myself (Though he might not remember) had a talk about Drupal and SpreadFirefox as well as where Mozilla was heading. Shortly after he leaves to go to Flock so I guess that says something. However Chris has as long as I known him has been up beat. Lloyd (the QA guy) has been really nice to me as well. I can’t argue with what they got going on and the direction they’re heading as well as their attitude.

Before I had written my own browser that implemented the same items that they have in Flock but it was in Visual Basic, I had no community interest in it and slowly it lost my interest as I have no evaluation so it was perfect in my opinion. I’m glad I’m going to be talking to some people who have the same vision as I do, just a bit more time and experience to work with it.

Damn you Sin…

All-Around Smart

You are all-around smart. Essentially, that means that you are a good combination of your own knowledge and experience, along with having learned through instruction – and you are equally as good with theoretical things as you are with real-world, applied things. You have a well-rounded brain.

40% applied intelligence
0% learned intelligence

Sin got me started looking at all these quizes and such that she does. So I decided to do this one…damn you.

Dinner and 4 Dollars

November 18, 2005

So as always I get on the bus to come home and the 8 is pretty quiet. Should be it’s 7:15 at night and nothing is going on. I do my usual routine and get off the bus at Campbell and Broadway, except today is different…I have $4.00 in my pocket!

I’m really in the mood for some food seeing I skipped lunch. Now if you know the intersection I’m talking about you know there is a Safeway, a Carl Jrs, and a Losbetos. Safeway = Food in packages, um no. Carl Jrs = Food from packages, na uh. Losbetos it is! So I walk in and get the cheapest item on the menu, a Quesadilla. Now if you’ve never eaten at Losbetos I don’t know what you’re doing reading this because you need to be there now. Now I know what you’re thinking “$4.00, WOW You can buy a soda with that”. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I introduce the great state of Arizona.

Arizona is really wonderful. It’s filled with a varying mixture of people. Now back in PA if you were a minority EVERYONE knew where you came from except there really weren’t that many. Arizona is FLOODED with different people. So we have a ton of Mexican take out places.So I wander in with my $4.00 and order my food. $2.60. Now if you’ve never had a Quesadilla I suggest you try one. Ingredients for one at Losbetos…

  1. Tortilla
  2. Cheese

They take a Tortilla about the size of a Frisbee and throw a few slices of cheese on it, fold it over, and let it “seal” together.Then when it is done they roll it up and throw it in the bag with some salsa and napkins and you’re on your way. Except today I sat down and ate mine. I never knew two ingredients would feel so good in my stomach.

So after I get done with my snack (More like dinner), I had 5 minutes to catch the bus to get home. Damn $1.20 in my pocket awesome! Medium Coke $1.09 + tax. So that puts me at $1.17 for my soda. Dinner and a drink for 4 smackers….can’t argue with that.If you’re ever in Tucson and have $4.00 do yourself a favor and grab some dinner.,-110.943418&spn=0.006191,0.007349&hl=en

Starting Over

November 18, 2005

So I deleted all the other post that were here cause they were lame, lame, lame…so I’m going to start over again.

I’ve decided that I am going to go forward with my book about riding the bus…hmmm, lets see what I should name it? How about Away from Work? Because that is really what it is about…being away from work and on the way to work. Sounds like a plan, now to get with it man.
