Summertime vacation at the beach..

Well, I’ve taken a few days to just relax at the beach. I’m currently in Wilmington just relaxing and about to go out to the hotel pool for a few hours. Just thought I would write something short and quick to keep my readers updated.

Hopefully I can go surfing soon and take some good pictures…maybe as good as the ones where *someone* went sand boarding and fell down the entire hill, haha. That will be me on a surf board for sure. Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying themselves!

Talk to you all later.

Summertime weather

Although it’s not officially summertime yet, the weather here has been exhausting! It’s been easily reaching into the 80’s and mid-90’s here in Western North Carolina, but the temperature down at the state capital have been topping at or near 100 degrees on a fairly regular basis!

Today, in the mountains, we’ve had a bit of a break with the temperature reaching just over 80 degrees. It’s a good time to take a vacation and just get out on the beach and into some cool waves.

Catching those waves may be a while for me as I’m planning a trip to the beach in mid July, but wouldn’t it be nice right about now. 😀

I only hope that these temperatures are still here when I head to the beach! No one likes a beach trip with bad weather.

Well, not much else to blog about today other than the Worldwide Developers Conference 2008. That will find it’s way into another post soon.

In the meantime try to stay out of the heat. 😛

Two years strong now

Well, it’s now been two years to the day since my horrible accident. Two years, five surgeries, plenty of medications, too much resting and not enough vacationing. 😀

Well, I think the bulk of the whole ordeal is now pretty much over..well as soon as I get these stitches out of my leg (next Friday). I think there’s about ~40-45 stitches, but no staples this time, haha!

Well, I hope everyone is having fun this summer! I know I will be in a few weeks! Hopefully I’ll get to go to the beach some friends later in July! We’ll see.

What’s everyone else doing this summer besides working!?

First week of summer 2007..

Well, I’ve completed one week back at home, hehe. I’m out of school for the summer and things have slowed down a great deal since classes at NCSU have come to a temporary end. Now I’m just working around home doing odd jobs. I haven’t gotten much accomplished online, but I’m planning to update the site a little and roll out a few new features and polish up some old ones.

Since my last blog, I’ve:
Built a new computer (all for a proud $675!)
Motherboard: MB ASUS M2N4-SLI NF4 SLI AM2
CPU: CPU AMD|A64 X2 6000 3.0G AM2 2x1M R
Memory: MEM 1Gx2|G.SK F2-6400CL4D-2GBPK R
Video Card: VGA ASUS N EN7300LE/HTD/128M R
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3500630AS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
Monitor #2: Samsung SyncMaster 914v 19″ (same as first for matching dual display).
Dell Space Saver keyboard (for a cleaner appearance and more space of course).
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit and 64-bit!
Played a lot of guitar.
Ripped some home videos from VHS to DVD using SnapStream’s Beyond TV. Works fantastically!
Cleaned my hard drives and purged junk to make room for more home video conversions. Those uncompressed avi/mpeg2 files take several GB’s, lol.
Ordered springs, shocks and a door lock actuator for my 1995 BMW 325is. The old shocks were feeling a bit unstable and the door lock on the passengers side was going bad.
Reported several Opera bugs since I’ve recently gotten time to test and debug some sites. It’s been fun!
Strip some paint off of a 1988 Porsche 928 with a razor blade. My father got it for a deal and is having it completely stripped of paint and interiors so it can be repainted. The white coat that was on it before was trashy and badly water stained. Now that I’ve gotten all of the paint off that I could with a razor blade..I guess it’s time to begin the sanding..then to some painted!
So that is about it for now other than recently watching Stephen King’s Rose Red. I love the way Stephen King can compose a story so well and not rely on jumps and frights to keep you scared the entire way through. He is such a great writer that he can just leave out all of the jumps and just tell the story itself..which is all I want anyway, hehe. Five stars from me: five stars.

That’s it for now, stay tuned!
