Ever try to play video games with a cat on your lap?
Juliet was obviously under the impression that we had set a place for her:
Lastly…snow on thanksgiving? wtf?
- High tech cars used to trap car thiefs. Optional automatic castration package being considered.
- Crazy guy uses fingers to serve himself turkey, family members complain…of course the next logical step is to stab them.
good morning….before we continue with our usual program please excuse this interruption:
MT-Blacklist comment denial on Dennis Judd’s Blog: paydayl0an.com
HAHAHAHAHAHAH, SUCK IT YOU STUPID INBRED RETARDED GOAT HUMPING DONKEY RAPING CHOCOLATE THIEFING SPAMER!!!!
Thank god I put that in, there’s been a huge increase in spam lately. I wonder if other blogs are feeling it.
anyways…back to the usual post. There is only one link today…not because I have to go carve pilasters, but mostly because it’s huge:

A while back I purchased Halo for the PC to play while waiting for the price of HL:2 to come down a bit. Plus since I’ve never played it, I figured I’d find out what all the Halo:2 hype is about.
What a great game. Seriously, little things matter the most and I’ll tell you the most impressive aspect of this game isn’t the graphics or the story, but rather the load times.
The damn thing loads in seconds. Every other recent game I’ve played (Doom3, Painkiller, etc) feel like they take forever, but this damn thing is soooo quick I can’t believe it. Seriously, nice job.
So anyways, I hooked the computer up to the TV so we could play it and also use the dolby 6.1 surround sound hehe
Since Jen plays most of these games with me, this works out a lot better than cramming into my desk (which is huge) I think. She seems to like it.
Anyways, off to Costco and the lumber store. Going to try to do the pilasters using the router table tim lent me (talk about a god send).
What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is an entertaining adventure game for gps users. Participating in a cache hunt is a good way to take advantage of the wonderful features and capability of a gps unit. The basic idea is to have individuals and organizations set up caches all over the world and share the locations of these caches on the internet. GPS users can then use the location coordinates to find the caches. Once found, a cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards. All the visitor is asked to do is if they get something they should try to leave something for the cache.
That is until the cops blow up your geocache with a .50 caliber sniper rifle because they think terrorists want to attack an ice cream stand.
I don’t think the geocache community appreciated it.
Of course I feel better knowing that some back water moron with the budget to afford a .50 caliber sniper rifle but not get trained on it are walking around with badges and guns.
- Never threaten a father with raping his daughters if you don’t want to get run over. Personally I’d get out afterwards and piss on em’ too.
- Get free shipping on your Anal Cunt when you spend more than $30 @ Target.
- USB Powered Mini Aquarium w/Blue LED Nightlight. Just in time for christmas for all your geeky friends.
- How do you get a truck out of the water? I’m not sure, but I know how not to do it.
- Holy crap this is cool. Somebody got Doom3 to run on a set of VooDoo 2 SLI’d video cards!
- Are you fat? Ugly? Does nobody like you? Visit here to feel better about your pathetic miserable life until the final day when you die and rot in the ground. On a related note, Hallmark has fired me.
I have been having intermittant DSL problems for about a week now, loss of sync, low sync rate, and static on my POTS line.
Of course what happens is they raise concerns about my IW…which I am 100% is not the issue…but hey, I only have been doing this for about 5 years so it’s not like I know DSL or anything.
*sigh*…anyways, after much wailing and knashing of teeth I finally decided to put in a NID Splitter in order to quell any considerations of IW problems. I never…NEVER wanted to do this because my office is on the 2nd floor, and any wire would have to be run along the outside of the house. This is a nightmare to do…and I just didn’t want to put a hole in our house.
So it took about 4 hours give or take, went pretty smoothly and of course I took pictures. Here’s a pic of the NI when I opened the telco side:
This is the NID Splitter that I’m going to install:
Just for the hell of it I checked the phone line’s polarity:
I used cable clips to secure the cat5 to the house…I recommend pulling out the little nails they come with and replacing with longer ones so you get some grip:
Here’s the wire run where it exits the office wall:
And here the wire continues and wraps around the roof:
And finally it runs to the NI:
Here’s a close up of the NID Splitter’s label…for the heck of it:
While this model NID Splitter wasn’t made exactly for the NI I have, it still fit easily inside:
The hardest part of this was probably having to cut a hole in the office wall…:(
Then there are these nifty little things you can use when there’s no gang box to screw into:
And finally, all done….wrong color…but it’s what I had lying around for now..some day i’m sure i’ll change it to white:
We spent most of yesterday working on trim work in the Family room/kitchen when we got back from the food bank. The results are pretty good and we even managed to pull out the fridge and rip out the old stuff and put new stuff back there as well.
Jen finishing up the closet quarter round
Close up of the closet hardware surround. Since the pergo is a floating floor and must be able to expand and contract we couldn’t just nail the quarter round to anything…so that little “u” shaped piece you see is just glued together. When we put in place we’ll drive one nail in to anchor it to the wood block the silver anchor is on….yeah, fun.
This is the 1/2 wall that seperates the Family room from the kitchen before we put the trim down
Here you see the trim work is down pretty much…no quarter round yet…didn’t get a picture of it yet.
Also we were finally able to install the T molding for the pergo transition between the family room and the mud room walkway. The cut around the existing 1/4″ round by the door jamb was a little tricky but came out alright after a few tries.
And finally some more pics of Moxie….here you can see her biting me, and being a couch potato:
