My New Favorite Phrase

SUCK IT!

Shamelessly stolen from dooce.

Adios Dr. Scott

Well I certainly never bought into what he was spoutin' on about nor did I ever feel compelled to change my views based on his proselytising. However, he was kind of a cool old coot to watch on occasion. From his "logical" step by step instructions on how ancient aramaic and hebrew and whatever else all resembled each other to having his horses run around on his ranch to bicycle rides around the same ranch his was most definitely not your stereotypical tv evangelical programming. I don't remember when the first time I saw Dr. Scott was, but I also don't really remember not seeing him on TV. Take 'er easy Dr. Scott, I hope you found what you were looking for.

Home Again

Well I'm back in LaLa land and the weather here is even worse than up north. Yuck. At least up north the rain was light and refreshing. This crap down here sucks. Well the new phone works great so keep an eye open for new pictures on a regular basis I hope. Not looking forward to work tomorrow at all, but oh well.

Gloomy Sunday Morning

Well no rain, but no sun either. Hung out with Curt and the kids yesterday afternoon and evening. Gonna head back over there in a bit. I can't believe how big they've gotten. Holy moly.

I was unsuccessful at installing the HP software for the new printer. The software doesn't like the fact that the processor isn't a PIII or higher. I'll have to dig up another cpu. Oh well. Next trip for sure.

Time for some coffee. Mmmm.

Dial up is so sloooooooooooooow.........

Well the doo has been done and now it's time to install a new printer on the rents puter. However, I had to do a little surfin' first. The title says it all. Wheeee!

As you can see in the TA picture below and to the right I have gotten my new phone activated and have started to use it for its intended purpose. Again, wheeeee!

City By The Bay

Well I made it to the Bay Area. Heading out to get the locks chopped soon. Weather isn't too bad. It was wet last night when I got in, but not raining. Looks about the same this morning. Got my new phone, but didn't have time yesterday to activate it, hopefully today. Customer service doesn't open till nine, but I'm looking forward to trying out sending pictures to textamerica. We'll see how it goes.

Nothing else happening here. Guess I should dig up the directions to Christine's.

Done

On multiple fronts.

1) New cell phone ordered. Woohoo!

2) Changes to littlekenny.com complete. At least for now. Yay.

V551

This close to purchaseing the V551. The cingular shopping cart website doesn't like my address so I need to call them about it, but once that issue is resolved it's on.

I've got that Mervyn's add going in my head........

........open, open, open, open......

Hallmark Day

Well despite the fact that I'm totally against the whole VD thing the fiancée and I had a wonderful dinner last night sponsored by Bristol Farms. Yummy. Plenty of wine with dinner. Yum, yum. And then a whole bottle of champagne afterwords. Luckily I was able to keep it together long enough to continue the festivities in the bedroom. Yum, yum.

So even though I can't get behind the whole commercialization of yesterday I can definitely get behind the celebration of "love". Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge. Say no more.

Photo Album

Well progress is being made on the online photo album project. Most of our vacation and event pictures now reside in their own little piece of the intarweb. Takes a while to upload some of the larger albums. Wheeeeee! Still plenty to create and upload. Then I'll only have to figure out a fun way to get to them.

I Are Wuss

Well i guess I'm a wuss. I tried watching The Grudge and about fifteen minutes into it I stopped watching. I just couldn't take all the things popping up out of nowhere. Maybe it was the fact that Imelda kept screaming and jumping when stuff happened. I dunno. Imelda has turned the movie back on now, the next morning, and is watching from underneath a blanket. I like the movie better now that I'm only listening to it as back ground noise. Eh.

Comments

Well during my tinkering with the template I've managed to break commenting. I know what I need to do to fix it, but I haven't had time yet to work out the details. In the meantime if anyone who happens to stumble on this place has something to say please email me at lk[at]littlekenny[dot]com. Thanks.

YoPoW

Well I finally went through the freeware site and discovered YoPoW. It took a little bit of trial and error to get something passable for posting pictures. I'm sure it can be fine tuned a bit, but as it stands now it will at least let me get all the pictures online quickly. Much quicker than the way I was trying to do it before.

Going All In

Well I'm really going all in with web stuff right now. I'm diligently trying to put all of my digital photos into an online album. Doing it the hard way I think by trying to manually change templates to create the look I want, you know fiddling with the html. Not something I'm familiar with at all. Taking much longer than if I just went and purchased some premade web page builder software with tons of templates built in. Oh well. Any suggestions for decent shareware or freeware web building software would be appreciated. Just haven't taken the time yet to sift through this yet to find something good.

Along those same lines I've also started shopping for a new cell phone that includes a camera. While at the same time I'm looking at textamerica and flickr. I set up a textamerica account today just to see how I like it. I've also played briefly with flickr. No camera phone yet though so no pictures from that.

All in all I'm having a good bit of fun playing around with all this stuff. Especially since I'm doing it the Mac way, at work. ;)

It's Official

Ok, I've played around enough and have reasonable confidence in the infrastructure. I have no idea what direction I'm headed or when I'll get there. Without further ado,

HERE I AM!

Now interesting content, hmmmmmmmmmm.......

G P S & T 5

So it pretty much goes without saying that I am a gadget person. I like my toys. So I picked up a palmOne T5 and I've really been enjoying it. It holds tons of mp3's in it's 1GB memory card. I've been recording some mp3s at 64k and while it isn't the best sound quality it's at least as good as listening to the radio. I've got over 250 songs on there right now and there is still tons of room. Not to mention the other two memory cards I have right now. Fun, fun, fun. What's this got to do with GPS you say? Well let me tell you. I picked up a Bluetooth GPS unit and mapping software for it and they arrived today.

Sweee eee eee eee eee eet.!

The only thing I'm missing on there is a phone, but I would really rather have a dedicated cell phone anyway. So I've got my appointments, my personal and business contacts, my music, my books, oh and did I forget to mention the fact that I can watch movies too.

I've read a lot of negative reviews regarding the T5, but so far I've been pretty darn satisfied.

I'm An Asshole

So when your office is next to the conference room are you obligated to let the losers use the phone?

No, see above.

Just Because I Can

Well while I don't have anything to really say, but want to use my plaything I'm making a post. Was just asked if was attending a meeting, but seeing as I was not on the the distro list I declinded. Much better to be here at my desk making this totally necessary post. *grin*

I Lied

I'm still playing with it. The blog you cheeky monkeys. Trying to understand what changing the different directories does for archiving and what not. I manage to keep breaking stuff, but that's ok. So far I've been able to make it work again.

www.littlekenny.com lives!

Well I can type in www.littlekenny.com and it takes me to "The" Little Kenny. More progress.

It's late, I'm tired. Night.

Making Progress

Well I guess I'm making progress. I've successfully moved the blog off of blogger's servers and onto my dslextreme server space. Not sure if I've setup forwarding correctly for littlekenny.com, but I'll wait till tomorrow to see if it's working or not. Woohoo!

Case Cooling

I was perusing one of my usual stops and saw that Paul was having some fun with excessive heat. It's not the first time I've seen this and I offered some advice. That was on Friday.

On Saturday he updated the status of his problem and I immediately started to answer with some more advice. However, seeing as I had the house all to myself this weekend and there weren't too many distractions I decided to dig in and give him more info and with pictures. Unfortunately this approach took me much longer since I finally made my first foray into the world of blog. So I've had a reply to his Saturday post sitting in notepad since early Saturday morning. Sorry 'bout that.

So I'd like to say thanks, I think, to Paul for finally stirring me into action. Here's to hoping we can get your cooling issues worked out.
