I've decided to start a second blog. Some of the articles will make it to this one, however, more specific ones will stay only to the new one.

It uses the Blog Engine.net v1.4 Blogging Software. It set up really easy, and I like it a lot.



I was on campus today walking towards one of the cs buildings when I caught sight of a man walking on crutches. His right leg was in a cast and it looked as though he was struggling to get where he was going. It didn't take long as I watched and he took a seat on a nearby bench. I went up to him, told him my name, and asked what happened to his leg. ......

College or no college? Jump into work, or push through the education. I've decided to go back to college full time again. Michigan Tech was a fun time filled with lots of friends and lots of very good times. Now it's time to go back to those fun times, full time. I have two years left to get my bachelors degree in Computer Science and now I'm serious ......

So I just finished spending approximately an hour and a half trying to figure out why my very simple javascript code wasn't working... function changeColor() { mb.style.backgroundColor = "#000000"; } Basically, I had an image in the html page, when the mouse went over the image it called that function, which would change the background color of the ......

In the IT world a person tends to learn something new every day, if not hourly. It's a fast paced world that we all live in, especially once we start talking about computers. Today I learned a new feature of e-mail that I had never known about. When you visit a web site and you subscribe to their newsletter you are often asked if you would prefer an ......

I've turned 21 years of age and I've experienced the wonderful joys of drinking alcohol legally... It takes all the fun out of drinking. My birthday is always shortly after the holidays, which means everyone is just finishing up their present giving, and then they see my birthday. So for Christmas I received $100 in Barnes and Noble gift cards. Then ......

So we've had a national do not call list for a while now. It seems to work pretty well too. The annoying telemarketers get farther and farther between, and you get rid of those exasperating calls. So if we've done this, why can't we have a Do not spam list? It could be a giant list of e-mails that say, you better not e-mail us, or you're going to be ......

Why would you spend $125 dollars on a $100 gift card? ...

I'm not understanding it? Can somebody please fill me in? lol



Today I saw this puzzle on the Internet. I love puzzles like these, which is probably why I like to program so much. It took me about 30 minutes and a couple sheets of paper to rifle through it all and get the answer. How fast can you guys get it? Comment, and I'll let you know if you're right or not. Einstein's Logic Puzzle So you want a hard brain ......

Just saw this when I went to my GMail page. Thought you guys might find it humurous.

I get out of work 2 hours early for a snow day! This is the first snow day I've ever gotten for work. School days, sure all the time, but never for work.

I'm liking it. I can spend my extra time coding with the newly released XNA 2.0! W00T(Newly added to the dictionary, as I'm sure you all know by now)!



I was looking for a network packet analyzer today so that I could see what's going through the network here. I figured I would only find software packages that cost a couple 100 dollars and I might find a couple off the wall minimal freeware packages. However, I was taken by surprise. WireShark is an amazing little application that completely open source! ......

This day, oh how joyous it will become. Feasts will fall down from the sky, and the sun will shine brighter than any day before it. Clouds will whisk away and bring thoughts of happiness to our minds. Happy skipping from children will falter not once, and people of all ages will sing in happiness.......... Yeah right! I get the Internet again today! ......

Around the office here I'm called Mr.Wizard because when I'm called upon I get things fixed, and quickly, often times when it seems hopeless. I always come up with a solution, whether it's a permanent fix or at least a temporary one. What kind of office nick names, or nick names around the home, have you guys had? Mine : Mr. Wizard Gambit Gravitron ......

By tomorrow night, I will have Internet at home again! I've been with out the Internet for 2 and a half weeks. That's the longest I have ever been with out Internet at home. So I'll be receiving a Fiber Optic connection from Verizon Wireless. I haven't heard much about their FiOS plans, but I'll let you guys know how it pans out ......
