Back at work

Last week, I didn’t say much, but I was definitely a frustration crier.  Then we had the memorial for my stepdad, and I couldn’t make it through the memorial without crying.  I had a bunch of funny anecdotes that I said during the memorial in Florida in February.  This time, all I could do is […]

Ugh craptastic

So, we get from Oklahoma to New York, and the clutch went out. On a Sunday. In the middle of the interstate off ramp. We had to pay for a tow, then a hotel. I walked the .5 miles to the dealership at 7:30 am. They couldn’t look at it until after noon. Total cost […]

Equality and Inequality

Only two different videos tonight.  One is highly partisan, but is only 5 minutes.  The other talks of inequality, and is 16 minutes long. I think the second is more valuable, but the first still gives food for thought.

Cutting Back

I started this post on May 5, but then got sidetracked, as has been happening a lot lately. So today I watched the parade for Tri-State. The parade started out with older cars, with a dance school, then ended up as a band parade.  Once the band parade started, it brought back a lot of […]

The Internet Archive and Donations

There are so many places looking for donations, it’s hard to choose just one.  Not only that, money seems to be tighter for a lot of people this year.   But if you’re looking for somewhere to donate, Archive.org is looking for donations.  They have increased the amount of information and websites that you can pull up through […]

Chaos or Precursor to Collapse?

I frequently read The Simple Dollar (opens in a new window).  Trent Hamm has a number of arguments for watching your spending, and very clear ideas on ways to save money and pay off debt.  He uses some of the tips from Dave Ramsey, but also pulls from other sources and tells what works for […]

F2P (Free To Play) Coming to a Game Near You

Though much of my interest in MMO’s was limited to MUDding (or Multi User Dungeons for those who didn’t play the old school text based games), I did play Everquest and Asheron’s Call.    About 8 years ago, I decided I wasn’t going to spend my money to play games.  I could either 1) start MUDding […]

Firing by Phone?

Interesting article on /. (aka Slashdot) the other day.  It wasn’t long, but the discussion got me thinking about the tech sector and how poorly some companies are doing.  This segued into how many big companies are handling things. The article is http://tech.slashdot.org/firehose.pl?op=view&type=story&sid=11/09/17/2237256 (Opens in a new window) How much oversight is there for big […]

Changes and Updates

Obviously I haven’t posted in awhile.  About 2 months (I haven’t actually looked at the date of my last post).  In that time, I’ve had a lot going on.  I quit my job, which was making me miserable.  I moved halfway across the country.  I’ve been working part time for my brother while I look […]

Goals for the Year

Last year, I made a list of goals that I wanted to achieve before I turn 40.  Since I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, I kept everything general.  I seemed to somehow think that if I didn’t put pressure on myself, these goals would take care of themselves.  A year and some later, I don’t […]
