Just TiVo’ed the Crossroads Guitar Festival. Looks like some really good guitar music. Looking forward to seeing Buddy Guy and Santana. And of course Santana. Thanks to Todd for the tip on IM.
Oh, forgot to mention that the Alienware Aurora has landed. It’s all setup and other than being a little on the noisey side, I’m quite pleased with it. The inside is all very neat and tidy and the machine is blazingly fast. Very pleased with the AMD64, though I still have yet to challenge it… Continue reading Alienware Aurora

DOH!!! All that hard work shopping down the drain – the present are… Continue reading Christmas Vacation

May I take this as an opportunity for anyone who regularly rents movies to recommend a little company… Continue reading Blockbuster to “end” late fees in 2005 – use Netflix 🙂
Did I ever mention I have a beautiful office view?
