So, in the spirit of my rarely posting on here, well, today something happened. Something’s always happening, but I usually don’t feel compelled to share. But this is so beautiful I couldn’t not. I guess in some ways, I’m a girly-guy, I guess, but I love the movie Frozen. And Taylor Davis made an insanely great cover of the cover song. It’s been shared all … Continue reading Let it Go
I just got this: Good day I have a site in the deep web, I sell all sorts of services – in general it is destruction to bussiness and injury. Basically, all but the murder. Often this happens because of rejected love or competition at workplace. This month she contacted me and set me the order of splashing sourness in your face. Standard practice – … Continue reading Seriously?
http://www.peopleiwanttopunchinthethroat.com/2011/05/me-at-zen-massage.html I happened across this post a little while ago. If you’re not familiar with PIWTPITT…Jen is hilarious! Here’s my response: Sooooo….late to the game, here, but I stumbled across this post and laughed my ass off…I got a mall massage, once. You know, some folks take over a defunct Hallmarks, hang up a couple of curtains, and go to work. The price was right, … Continue reading Massage
So, I got the new guns cleaned yesterday, in anticipation of taking them out to the range. I’m pretty excited about it. I took a marksmanship class at ETSU in 1997 and learned that it’s a whole different kind of shooting. Very demanding [though combat shooting has it’s own demands. Sometime, if you have the chance and the range to yourself, prep your weapon and … Continue reading Guns! Guns! Guns!
Well, one week from now, we’re back at it! This summer was almost unbearably long. Almost no one around the office, quiet, miserable. I can’t wait for the students to come back! On the plus side, I finally took the plunge and put a refrigerator in my office. Now, I have all the cold water I could possibly want. I’ve spent the last six … Continue reading Here we go…
As you may have guessed, things got pretty hectic toward the end of the semester. I’ve been wanting to post, but just haven’t had the time. All-in-all, the students did pretty well this spring. And I made an ‘A’ in my class (Human Computer Interaction). But it got pretty busy there, for a while. The Minecraft server (jram-mcs.ml) is still up and running, but it … Continue reading Updates
So my interest in WoW has fallen off, of late. I’ve just gotten tired of grinding; doing the same thing over and over. One of our self-assigned projects with the Linux SIG this semester was walking through the installation of a Minecraft server. I’ve discovered that the game is very engaging and have wasted faaaaaar to much time on it. I spooled up a DigitalOcean … Continue reading Minecraft and other errata
I remember when I was eleven years old, a friend of the family and neighbor in married student housing in Clemson took me to see Star Wars. I left in awe. Awe of the story, the effects, the sheer wonder of it all…and especially the music! Who would have thought then how much of an impact the franchise would have on not only the movie … Continue reading Goin’ to see Star Wars!
There were a bunch of Memorial Day posts on FB yesterday… Many were re-posts of President Reagan’s speech, which is very moving. But this one was new, and really struck a chord with me. I’ve been spellbound with the story of Operation Red Wings since reading Marcus Luttrell’s book several years ago. And the movie, in spite of its deviations from the book, is awesome … Continue reading Fitting Memorial Day Post
So I watched The Imitation Game last night. Really good movie. I was somewhat familiar with the story of Alan Turing from past professors who are fans. But I found the story compelling on many levels. First as a sometime fan of history, particularly the World War II era, the movie portrayed yet another facet of the war that is rarely attended to by Hollywood. … Continue reading The Imitation Game
