Notes To Self
One of many reasons I loath iTunes is the difficulty in moving your iPod or iPhone to a new computer. I won’t bother with tips on moving music and such, there are plenty of blogs and sites out there to help with that. My main goal is to record for myself and others how to [...]
To avoid using the Adobe download manager, you can get the latest Flash installer for Firefox here: http://www.softwarepatch.com/software/flash-standalone-installation-firefox.html I don’t want to have to install extra software on my computers to download a tiny, tiny file. The “download manager” is unnecessary bloat and a useless piece of software.
Finally got around to trying to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 onto my EEE 1005HA netbook. I am happy to report that everything works as expected! Wireless, network, sleep, hibernate, the whole 10 yards is working smooth. I took some notes on the installation process. You can see em after the jump.
I’m back to being a bus commuter. The trip now is about 2-3 times longer than at my old job, but it is relaxing. The end result is more time traveling with the benefit now of having a fairly solid I-can’t-work-any-later-than-this time. With the extra time comes a need for something to do. I have [...]

I found a great solution, reBlog! reBlog lets me see all my favorite sites and news stories, then post the really interesting ones for everyone to see. Wander over to http://fenrir.us [...]

WoW has been a great destressing tool for me. It’s a fun game and I am able to play with some friends from work. If you are a Wow player with the Horde on Hellscream or an Alliance player on Uther, drop Earthbane on Hellscream or Weatherwax on Uther a line.
I have been wanting to get a flag from Madison for some time now, looks like I will be able to do that now! From an article in The Capital Times, I have found a place to go to. I have a quest now. J TaylorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Rare Maps, Notable Books and Antiquities on North Carroll [...]
After a few server moves and multiple servers, I have two spare domains I need to do something with. Madtown.cc is my old RSS news feed site. All the sites I normally read were fed to that site so I can see everything in one nice page. Though, now I use Bloglines for that, so I disabled [...]
