Gavin DeGraw

As recommended by Zach Braff, Gavin DeGraw gets a second from me. I’ve enjoyed going to his website allowing the playlist to continuously loop through a very nice selection of tracks. Props to the marketing genius for that. To summarize DeGraw, mix Howie Day and Jason Mraz. Any idea why…Continue Reading

MSI 3.0 (Update)

I finished the class Microsoft presented on MSI 3.0. It’s interesting stuff, but if you’re used to such things as RPM, it’s just catching up. Microsoft does have a nice feature coming out that is targeted to assist the gaming community. This new feature allows the original MSI installer to…Continue Reading

MSI 3.0

I’m in training today and tomorrow for MSI (Microsoft Installer) 3.0. It’s pretty sexy stuff, though today we’re primarily going over MSI 2.0. I’ve used MSI packaging technologies for some time because of my deployments manually and through SMS, but now I’m getting a much better understanding as to the…Continue Reading

The Honda Experience (Finale)

The Honda Experience

The Honda Element has an unusual aesthetic value about it. I believe the general favor for this vehicle is split between those who love it and those who hate it. Oddly still, that split is probably 50/50. My wife and I coincidentally agree on our view and like the overall…Continue Reading

New Drum

I recently purchased a Klong Yaw (also seen as klon yaw and glawng yao). It’s 31” high with a 9.5” head. I got it because it seemed very unique and I’ve often spoke of a mythical drum of this shape. Turns out it wasn’t just in my head after all.…Continue Reading

Send $39.95 to join the Olaf fan club!

I’m so pleased that the European Anti-Fraud Office joined my fan club. Because I value their ethics and $39.95 (what do I do with these Euro’s now?), I sent them all complimentary jackets.
