Birthday Sunday
Friday, August 29, 2008 11:58 AM

    So its my Birthday on Sunday August 31. I think that birthdays loose their luster after the first 21 birthdays you just get kind of tired of them. I mean what is it that you get after you turn 21. You get you insurance break at 25 as well as being able to rent a car without that huge down payment or whatever. But what is that worth really, nothing I tell you nothing. I remember birthdays being so important to me when I was young. I use to look forward to them for the whole year and as soon as it was over I would look forward to the next one. Now though I could care less if I had a party. I guess thats a part of growing up. Well anyways I think that was all that I really had to say.

Weddings whats the deal with that
Friday, August 29, 2008 8:49 AM

So I recently got married and I was wondering what is the deal with weddings. I realize that in the Christian community that its the ceremony where the father of the Bride transfers the headship to the husband. The wedding is also a worship service to praise God for all the blessing he has given us and the blessing of a new wife. Having said all that why is it that its such a big expense? I mean why can't you just go to the church and get married and then go and have a big party. Why do you have to decorate the church the reception hall, the rehearsal dinner ect. I think that weddings are a way of retailers to generate money. Its like greeting card companies creating this hype around holidays just because they can profit from them. I'm  not really blaming the card companies because thats just good business. If I was in the card business I would do the same thing its just good advertising. I just don't know why we have to fall for it and spend and spend. I mean the wedding the reception and not the mention all the expenses that happen before the wedding. All this to say that i think that there are a lot of occasions that are over hyped and would be a lot more fun if instead of spending all kinds of money you would just have fun and not worry about the aesthetics. Some would say that you make a big deal out of the wedding so that you can get a lot of presence. Well if you would just send all your wedding money toward all the stuff you want to start you life together then you wouldn't have to worry about getting 3 toasters. I guess thats all I wanted to say but after saying all that I would like to tell you that some if not must have been planning their wedding since they were little girls. So try and speak rational into a bride that has been planning for 20 years.

Cable Guy
Thursday, August 28, 2008 4:40 PM

So I ordered Comcast cable and they were supposed to come on Wed Aug. 27th between 4 - 6. Well I got off work and I hurried over to the house and waited for my call but I never got one. I was kind of mad because I really wanted to get internet and Cable TV that day. Well I decided to go over to my brothers house and then at like 9:45 Comcast calls me and asks me if I still wanted my Cable installed today. I was like sure I want my Cable. Well the Cable guy didn't come until about 10:10. He scared the crap out of my neighbor when he was connecting the wires at the cable box on the side of the house where my neighbor's bathroom window was. This alarmed my down stairs neighbor who came out in his underwear to see what was going on. Well I told him that it was my cable guy and he said that he thought it might of been for him since he was having problems with his internet. But I digress, anyways the Cable guy's name was Frank. Frank was from New York and said that when he moved to Tallahassee he said that it kind of reminded him a little bit of new york. This was after a discussion about how bad the crime can get in Tallahassee. Frank was a cool guy and believe that marijuana should be legal which is not a bad idea in my opinion. Well we got the internet working at about 11 and i paid him his money and he was off on his way. Nice guy though. He kind of reminded me of Dave Chappelle but with less teeth.

What a Day
Thursday, August 28, 2008 3:25 PM

    You ever have one of those days where you are just so utterly tired and worn out. I am having one of those days today. I don't know what it is about this day that makes it feel this way. Like yesterday I got home from work and my feet and legs were tired. Now why in the world would me feet and legs be tired if I all I do all day is sit and work on the computer? Maybe I'm getting old. I'm only 24 but I feel like I'm getting old everything hurts. Maybe I just like to complain about things and it makes me feel better. I feel like if I complain about it then theres no more reason to talk about it. So I was at this Bar the other day and I met this guy there his name was Adam. Adam was a maintenance guy at an apartment complex. He was a very interesting person. He had his hair buzzed off and he had a skull on his black shorts with a peace sign crossed with a pentagram tattooed on his shoulder. I tell you all this so that I can tell you that I think that it is best to try and never judge someone by their appearance. This guy Adam was a really cool guy. He had worked at all kinds of places and had seen a lot of the realities of the world. Adam at one point use to do biohazard removable which means that he would sometimes have to clean up after murders and such. I mean how many people can say they do that. He also worked at funeral homes preparing the bodies for their coffins. Well anyways I thought that he was interesting. Well interesting for a person that you just randomly meet.

RocketFish Webcam campatible with Mac OSX and Windows
Tuesday, August 26, 2008 10:54 AM

I have recently bought a RocketFish webcam.  My problem was that I wanted to have a webcam that would work well for my Mac as well as my PC. Well this little camera works just fine using the default iSight driver and its plug and play. It also works well with Windows and It's compatible with both the Windows and Mac Skype programs. Some of the webcams that are available are not made for apple will work but some of the features my not work right like the auto focus features and must likely the face tracking features. The camera was about $25 bucks but I think that it is worth it.

 

Buy at Amazon Today!

Rocketfish - 2.0MP Autofocus Webcam

Software Review - Apple's Aperture
Monday, August 25, 2008 11:15 AM

 So I had no idea how awesome Apple's Aperture was for photo editing. I have Aperture 2.1.1 and I love it. I am very good with Photoshop and I can do all the essential things with aperture faster and more efficiently. They have a stacking feature that allows you to group and stack your photos so that you can organize them more efficiently. There is a ranking system that allows you to rank all of your photos which can also serve as a way of finding the shots that are the best. This Program is $199 and is worth very penny. Photoshop Cost about $650 for the full version. I believe that the upgrade is about $199. Well anyway I have been really impressed with its performance and its features. Not to mention that you can download many plug-ins for it so that you can do more with filters as well as upload your photos directly to facebook and other photo sharing type websites. To see the program in action heres a link to the Apple's website.
