Checkpoint saves suck

From time to time I feel compelled to preface a posting here by a reminder of what sort of person I am.  I’ve been playing computer and console games for over a quarter of a century, heavily biased towards the computer “role playing” game, fantasy, and first person shooter genres.  I’m more prone to […]

May cause mood swings…

I went back to my dentist today for a follow up regarding the pain I’m experiencing with the tooth that was prepped for a crown. I’ve now been booked in to see a specialist on Tuesday: an endodontist. I find it curious that an endodontist is a specialist (according to the Wikipedia link) in […]

Business Time

My nephew sent me a bunch of Youtube links relating to a folk duo from New Zealand called “Flight of the Conchords”  Their music, at least from the samples I looked at, seems to be heavily slanted towards somewhat off-colour humour.  In my opinion, it’s first rate stuff- I spent a good half hour […]

Aching jaw, and LOLCats…

I mentioned previously that I had some long-overdue dental work done last week on Thursday. Post-dentist, it was relatively pain free. Until Monday afternoon, that is, when it was as if some hitherto somnolent nerve suddenly awakened from its deep slumber.


Vacation over…

Time is relative.  When I started my vacation, two weeks seemed like forever.  Now that I’m on my last day of vacation, two weeks seems to have been hardly enough to get started.

I had a lot of grandiose plans when I started.  Some of them came to pass: when Chris was here we […]

Asus M2R32 motherboard: defective RAID/AHCI?

I mentioned in a previous post here that I picked up some additional hard drives.  The 750 GB drive is running happily in an external eSATA-connected enclosure and is providing backup for my machine.  The other two drives are sitting on a shelf, and will remain there indefinitely.  There is a story behind their […]

Can’t tawk, my mouf is fwozen

I just got back from the dentist. Nearly two hours in the chair: in itself, that’s tiring. But the part that is bugging me at the moment is that the freezing is still fully active. My mouth feels like its stuffed with cotton or something. And of course you have to answer a bunch […]

A terabyte a day

I bought 1.75 terabytes of potential disk capacity today. That storage comes in the form of three 3.5″ Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 model hard drives. For a few moments I was holding all of that storage in one hand.



Chris, Kalen and I went boating yesterday.  This is sort of a “traditional” thing, as in we’ve rented a boat and risked drowning three times in the last decade or so.  This time we rented our boat from Sewell’s marina in Horseshoe Bay and went up to Anvil Island.


Airshow 2007

 My friend Chris and I had a great day at the Abbotsford Airshow today.  As per usual, I’m mildly sunburnt (despite sunscreen) and tired.  I also have several hundred photos to sort through.  I was thinking I might get to uploading them tonight, but I think that will wait for another day.
