I guess blogging really isnt for me

July 28th, 2009

Look how long i go between posts!!

But so much goes on i rarely have time to breathe..
My job is pretty hectic, lots of time driving between cities and the recent passing of my mom really has not helped..

But maybe my recent switch to a mac from windows will help me..

I am a sad blogger indeed! But lots of changes have occured.

January 20th, 2008

Well it has been forever since I even wrote anything.
But i have to huge pieces of news, first and foremost is my job is changing! Basically Dell computer has agreed to acquire my company Equallogic for $1.4 Billion dollars! Yes Billion, and no i am not one of the rich ones!

The other news is that I have grown so attached to my Triumph Daytona 675 I bought myself in christmas of 06/07 that i bought the largest forum associated to the Triumph 675 motorcycles. So browse on over to Triumph675.net.

How the days slip by

July 5th, 2007

WOW.. April 11th was my last post.. where the heck have i been?

Lost in my work most likely.. long hours have been the norm for some time. But as the company progresses forward it keeps the motivation there because the payoff will be huge.

So I have been visiting incredible adventures web page for years wondering if I had disposable income what would I do? Definitely doing the Mig 29 experience to start, then probably the HALO jumping, and oh the possibilities!

And that is why I am working so hard, to give my self and my family opportunities that would not normally be there for us.

So anyway.. I am thinking of changing this blog to something I can talk about on a daily basis.  But i have too many interests to figure out what..

Cycling? Running? Swimming?(Triathlon),Computers? Computer Storage(sector I work in), electronics, Motorcycles, Home Automation, Home Theater, Soccer, the list goes on. But therein lies my struggle, what to talk about?

I will ponder this for a bit.


New Car!

April 11th, 2007

Well someone in an Found On Road Dead F-150 decided they would total my 2004 Volvo S60 2.5T by sandwiching me between them and another SUV which had what seemed like this huge ball hitch on it..OMG..the damage didnt look that bad but the frame had these ripples in them..jeez..

But anyway.. I am the proud owner of an 2007 Acura TL Type-S..man what sweet ride.. I will post pics when I can. Has the Voice Activated navigation system and is loaded!
So my only complaint.. Acura what the hell were you thinking putting that XM radio in there? I have been a sirius listener for sometime and yes I was biased, but I gave XM the chance and found similar channels to Sirius, some I like better some I like less. But how about those little 15-30 second commercials? What gives? I am PAYING YOU for no commercials! So I am going to cancel the XM and I am going to get the Sirius Stilleto and plug it into the aux/ipod jack and go back to sirius, no in car controls available but hey it beats commercials and inferior programming.

More later.

CINGULAR SUCKS! or Should I say ATT SUCKS! or is ATT/Cingular SUCKS!?

I was an ATT customer a long time ago and swore to GOD that I would never go back to them, well guess what here I am. Not by my choice of course.

I dont know about you but every single one of my friends who uses cingular now has problems since ATT and took over.
Go ahead.. call them.. they dont care!
I use Cingular for my business and for the first 2 years flawless service.. but now forget it!
They can no longer claim they have the lowest rate of dropped calls. It’s simply not true now that ATT is in the picture. I drop at least 3 calls a day now!

And if I want to leave, they will be more than pleased to send me a bill for something like $150 “early termination fee”! Thanks!!

I went out on a limb and bought one of those fancy Cingular 8125 Windows Mobile phones, only 60-90 days later to have them release the 8525 which is on the newer G3 network.. any compassion to want to help me upgrade? Yeah right!! I am not eligible for another upgrade for 2 years..

I am sure good people work at cingular but its amazing the people they put on the phone to answer calls.. people who seem genuinely not interested in solving problems..People who simply don’t care..

So I am thinking about biting the $150 bullet so I can switch to someone else..

My new hobbie?

March 19th, 2007

Well my new life continues and is so much fun I am sorry I did not do this sooner.  So what is it you are asking?  Well I now belong to the motorcycling community.  So for my first bike I purchase a Triumph Daytona 675!  My new favorite website is the Triumph 675 net website, I am catching “modding” fever, carbon fiber this, frame slider that, tail tidy’s, integrated turn signal/brake light’s.  Oh my god the bank account is empyting quick!  But the people on there are the nicest people ever!  So I personally bought mine in the “Scorched Yellow” color.  Also a little plug for my motorcycle helmet from Scorpion Sports, I have no reference as I have never owned a helmet before, but the quality is good, and the price is nice too.  I purchase the EXO-700, but the newer EXO-1000 is out so I may have to pony up the $$ to get it.

So here is a photo of my ride, no mods on it yet. But I will post soon the upcoming mods.

It continues

February 28th, 2007

My awakening continued on my birthday this past saturday. I finally did something i have always wanted, I willingly jumped from a perfectly good airplane. The good news is that i did have a tandem jump instructor strapped to my back. I got to experience a whole minute of freefall, and then about another 5 minutes of hanging from the line lifelines attched to the parachute. Now think about this we jumped from 13,500 feet pulled the chute at 5,000 feet and it took only 1 minute to get there, but it took 5 minutes to go from 5,000 to 0.

I will publish the photos and video as soon as i can.

The beginning of my awakening

February 22nd, 2007

Well i think i hit rock bottom recently and my awakening is just beginning.

I got so wrapped up in a non-sense relationship online that I lost sight of who I am.
And I am on the rebound and looking to find out what it will take to love myself enough to climb out of this well I had fallen into. To all my Family, Friends, and Co workers I am sorry for what has happened and if I have to spend the rest of my life making it up to you I will do that.
To that online person.. this message is for you..

You have made the biggest mistake in your life! And I hope that it all catches up to you!
