electricty So I got myself zapped by electricity, not once, but twice yesterday.

 

The first one was all fun and games. Jason and I were installing some phone lines and computer wiring and had been joking about the fact that phone lines carry a small current.

So I’m up here in lovely Morristown, NJ for SQl training this week. As I write this, I’m just finishing up my lab for the day. Yesterday, I realized that I was relatively close to my college friend Erich. He works in NY and lives on the Jersey side, but I didn’t know exactly where he was in relation to my training. So I gave him a call, and luckily, he wasn’t away on business.

So here’s a geek morality question for you. This past weekend I helped Lissa and Berrick move. Lissa was pining over the fact that they wouldn’t have Internet access for another day. Since they were living in an apartment complex, I fired up the wireless network browser on their laptop and went looking for unsecured wireless networks.

Once More, With Feeling has to be one of my favorite Buffy episodes of all time. When it first aired, it was well received by fans, even if it didn’t win an Emmy (helped in part by a ballot printing error).

they are the testicles of my mind. -Eric Hoffer

 

So I’m driving back to work yesterday and I notice what appears to be a pair of testicles hanging from the trailer hitch on the truck in front of me.

This is an update post. I just updated my blog to v2.3. I’m also simultaneously testing the new capabilities for tagging (inherent, rather than a plugin). While the tagging probably works if I post through the WP interface, I’m attempting to set the tags through Windows Live Writer and a registry hack making it think the blog supports keywords.

Wheezing DVR

It’s that time of the year when all the new seasons are beginning. We’ve just about gotten caught up on last season, and gotten the DVR under 30%, when the new rash of shows starts. With most, it’s fairly easy. Since the title of the show isn’t changing, we didn’t have to do anything new when Heroes or Bones premiered this week. Survivor is always the exception, because each season is a new title, such as ‘Survivor: China”. In that case, we have to remember to setup a new recording.

Moments I want to remember: September

I was inspired by Megan’s post to take a few moments and mention some moments about my kids that I want to remember for this month. Both my wife and I blog now, and while we both have the desire to keep track of how things are going in our kids lives, our blog posts also include the chaos of the rest of our lives and the world in general. Sometimes it takes too much time to actually sit down and compose a full post. I don’t do many one or two  line entries  like other friends, but there’s a certain amount of freedom that gives you in just ‘capturing the moment’.
