Updates, Photos, Etc

I finally sucked it up and fixed my desktop computer after suffering almost half a year of screwed up Windows XP (10 minute boot-up time, wouldn't hibernate anymore, random network drop outs, printer only worked half of the time, etc etc).

The results are quite impressive: Replaced the buzzing stock Intel CPU fan with an unnecessarily monsterous OCZ Vendetta cooler. I got Windows 7 up and running in under a day. Moved over everything important to a new 1 TB hard drive. I now have 3 TB of storage, all of my photos are now managed /w Picasa, and all of my music is (unfortunately) re-imported into iTunes. Most importantly for the first time in almost 3 years all of my data is finally backed up to a secondary hard drive *whew* talk about flirting with disaster!

As a result of the Picasa upgrade, I took down all the pics from the photos section of the website until I can find a better set of newer pics to put up there.

News Section Moved

The 'Blog' or 'News' section of the site has been moved from to, because Google no longer supports FTP uploading of blogs. FYI.
