Scar Tissue

Well I got a few books for Christmas and I've already finished reading one. Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis was a fast read for me. I've listen to to RHCP since 1991-92 and have always enjoyed their later music. I was really taken aback to read about the continuous hard drug use by Anthony throughout the his documented journey. Though he has battle to stay clean over the last twenty years, I fear that he hasn't fully walked away clean to this day. I wish him the best and pray that tomorrow he can stay sober. But the book was great it really reveals insight into the making on the chili peppers. It shines light to various meanings to his lyrics over the years. Unfortunately it didn't reveal my seeking of what the heck "Huckleberry" references to in his songs. My only guess is he is referring to Hillel Slovak. Anyway if you have ever enjoyed the peppers then I can recommend the book.


Alright I've got the Internet again, and got a sweet deal from my new ISP. The reason I got the connection again is that I am attempting to go back to school to get my bachelor's degree. Planning on doing a local college's Distance Learning Program for Management Information Systems. I took some classes there in 1997-98, so I figure it would be the quickest path for me to earn my bachelors. Tomorrow I plan to head over there to finalize any details that need to be taken care of.

No Internet

I dropped my Internet connection at home, so I'm off line for most of the time. I have Internet at work, but I haven't set any time to post anything worthwhile. My wife and I have been talking about some things. If it pans out like I think it might I will let you know.

Audioscrobbler ???

I just realize that Audioscrobbler hadn't been updating what I listen to while at work. That was odd, nothing changed. There was an update for the plugin, once I did that it started working again. Go figure. Back to coding.

So much for summer

Well summer is over since the kids are back at school. This summer was so defeating for me, nothing I set out to do got accomplished. At some point yesterday I was wondering if it would be better for me to teach english in China then try to get these projects done. I'm glad to be moving back into fall. That seems to be my highlight season, if that makes any sense.

A groundhog in my back yard ate all my lettuce, the voles ate my potatoes, and the heat/drought killed my lima beans and black eye peas. If I had a free weekend I would plant again to get some produce for the fall.

A friend recommend the book called Omnivore's Dilemma so once I finish my book I'm reading now, I'll try to start that one.

The pressure is on

Well one of the projects that was charged to me this summer was roll-out SharePoint with having students and classes and teachers all flowing together in some type of coding magic. Well to do that I need to learn how to make Webparts, to make webparts I need to learn ASP.NET, to learn ASP.NET, I need to learn to program with Visual Studio 2005. So I have been on a crash course learning all I can knowing that my project will most likely not be completed in a few weeks. Well I sit around and think of all that I must learn to do that I get all stressed out. So hopefully I can focus on what needs to be done and do it in the right order so I can actually present something by the end of summer that will appeased the my superiors.

New Vacuum

Well our old vacuum was wearing out, it was a cheapy that we had for five years. Well we pooled some money and bought one of those fancy Dyson vacuum-cleaner. So tonight I assemble it and started to vacuum. Wow! I was able to see how much cat hair my old vacuum couldn't get. I vacuumed the whole house, it was some what rewarding to see all the junk getting suck up. So I can officially give the Dyson a thumbs up.

Playing with Virb

Set myself up an account on Virb. Since I hate Myspace, I'm willing to play around with Virb. My page is here. When I get a free moment I'll play with the layout and create my own custom style. But for now I'm all about learning ASP.NET 2.0 so I can work with custom web parts in Sharepoint. It is funny how I had been heading down the path of a web developer only to spend my time learning to program. I just hope that I can figure this stuff out, soon.
