My chair died…

Oh well. my desk chair is now in the garbage.. I got it from Office Depot about a year ago, paid $30 for it on sale, so I think I got my moneys worth anyhow..

So went this morning, back to Office Depot and I found that they don’t have much of the type of chairs I like, I don’t like arms on my chairs as I liek to sit crosslegged and the arms get in the way.. they had some nice leather chairs on sale, like regular price $150 on sale for $50 so that’s a nice discount..

but I ended up paying $70 for one that I liked, but not exactly the type I like, but it’ll do I guess for now.. I’ve been using it for the last few hours and it seems comfortable

and they had a special that if you spend $50 or more you get a $10 gift card, well the guy who was helping me had no clue and screwed it up, and if i wanted it he would have had to void my order and re-do it, I just said screw it..

but I got this chair HERE if anybody cares..

PC Knowledge and Family

So my aunt and uncle have a computer, a dell, it’s older, maybe two years, the warranty expired… well my aunt is the type of person who is honestly not that bright, and if she gets an email saying she got an ecard from someone she opens it of course and gets a virus.. she visits all kinds of stupid websites and anytime one of them says to download something she does it…

Ok.. I’m still cold….

so, two days ago I posted about turing my furnace on because it was cold.. well it died yesterday, so I’m still cold… it was 32F outside when I got up this morning, and the part I need was just replaced about four years ago, and it’s going to cost me about $300 for it.. it’s just the motor that went bad, but of course I have to buy the entire housing setup as well.. and I won’t have any money till wednesday, so I guess we will be cold till then…

gack… I hate my life sometimes

Ok, It’s cold…

Oh well.. there goes my gas bill, it’s 38F outside so I guess it’s time to turn the furnce on.. I held out as long as I could, but that’s that… back to the $400+ gas bills every month, and supposedly there’s an 18% increase this year as well.. so this should be a rough winter.. but I’ve got children, and when they complain they’re cold, it’s time to turn it on.. fun-fun

I don’t get it really why the gas has to rise 18%.. I mean we’re not making anymore money than we did last year, but they want us to pay more…

it sucks, it really does

Busy and loving it, and I got a new ipod!


So believe it or not I’ve never owned an ipod, I’ve got a few mp3 players that work fine for me, and even those have been sort of retired in favor of using my ATT Tilt as my media player, but I got the 4th Gen Ipod Nano, the Product Red color, and I really like it, especially the accelerometer feature, though they need to get more games for it to utilize it better for that… overall though I think it’s kinda cool, not sure how much use I’ll get out of it, but it’ll come in handy for reviewing ipod accessories, and we all know there’s tons of those out there..

mSnack – a video snack for your mobile!

So I was bopping around the internet and ran across an interesting little site called mSnack, the ‘m’ in the title means mobile, as in cellphones.. The idea of the site is to send movie video clips to your cellphone in the form of text messages. I tried it out for a few of them and they’ve got a few different categories to pick from including hot girl videos, anime, movie previews, viral videos and a few more..

Here’s a screen shot of the site:


The site itself is kind of plain, and looks very empty, but when viewed from your mobile it’s much fuller.

How it works is you subscribe to what categories you want and they send you a text message with a link in to to download the video to your phone, I hooked my phone up via my WiFi and it worked fine and fast.

There are several categories as I said but I’m sure their most popular one is the hot girl video clips, but they aren’t really R or X rated or anything like that, it’s just a girl in a Bikini dancing around. Of course there’s a link attached to the video as well so you can view more if you wish.


I guess I’m considered Otaku, as I like my anime, all kinds of it and of course I had to try the Anime category as well to see what it was like, they sent me a little 30 second clip, kind of like a trailer or preview.


The quality is ok, on my Tilt I’ve got a 320×240 screen, so the res is a bit higher than say a flip phone, so the image was a big grainy, and pixellated, but I guess you can’t expected dvd quality from a download to your phone, it’s not like speeds are broadband like and the idea of course is to get the content to you fast.

Though it would be nice if they added an option for higher quality for those that wish to receive it…

Oh well, it’s neat, stop by and check them out at:

Zombies for Obama!

Normally I stay out of Politics, but this is just too damn cool to not pay attention… and it’s from Pittsburgh!!

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) October 6, 2008 — The flesheating zombies first documented in the classic horror movie NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD have evolved into political junkies determined to have an impact on the 2008 elections. To channel their energy in a proper and hopefully harmless direction, producer Russ Streiner and screenwriter John Russo have helped them form their own dot-com advocacy group under the banner: Send a Zombie to Congress.

“These modern zombies aren’t as brain damaged as you might imagine,” Streiner enthused. “Indeed they have some very good ideas. They want to eliminate the fat cats in Washington and they want to help elect Barack Obama. You don’t have to be a zombie to believe as they do.”

Russo adds, “You also don’t have to be a zombie to join our PAC. Check out our website. There are lots of things zombies can’t do on their own. Their rotting hearts are in the right place, but they desperately need the help of average Americans.”

Asked exactly how their horde of zombies would seek to “eliminate the fat cats,” Russo and Streiner were evasive. Russo parried the question, stating only that the flesheaters were justifiably upset with the wrong-headed policies of the past eight years and wanted to do something about it “in their own way.”

“This time Washington REALLY needs a change,” Streiner said, “and even the brain-dead zombies know it.”

Russo and Streiner say that they expect millions of disgruntled Americans to join the zombies’ PAC.
