lots of stuff has happened since my last post.
Due to monetary issues, I sold my motorcycle, but now I really want to ride again...we'll see how this works out.
My grandfather passed away a couple of months ago. It was pretty sad. I miss having him around, but I'm ok now.
Being in The Game again (or is it for the first time?) kinda sucks.
We just had the housewarming for my new place. It was a great party (with awesome, yet subtle techie stuff, haha), but it ended pretty poorly. Lots of stupid drama.
Discovered friendfeed. I'm still somewhat on the fence as to how I feel about it. On the one hand, it's indicative of the info overload that runs rampant on the internet, on the other, it IS a really cool way to get information about what your friends are do and reading on the net. The one thing that I will say is that I use Google Reader a helluva lot more now that I have it -- I realize that I do read interesting articles so now that I'm using friendfeed, I'm using Reader as a way to mark the ones that I find cool). So I'm way more up to date on current (mostly tech, cuz my job is related and that's what I like) news. RSS feed aggregators are much more efficient ways of keeping up on that stuff than going to the sites.
Also, I discovered Amazon MP3. Verdict: 'A' for 'Awesome,' with a few niggling points. They fix those few issues and it'll we definitely be a force to reckon with.
I'm also thinking of repurposing this blog. Or making yet ANOTHER one where I can post commentary on tech news (cuz lord knows that I'm very opinionated on those issues). We'll see.
