I am moving out of my apartment in NY for a couple of reasons. The first one is that I am not here as much now with my internship with Best Buy in Minnesota. So why pay for an apartment when I am never here? Anyway while I was going through things to move out (minus clothes which they are all now packed in the car) I realized I had collected a lot of odd computer equipment over the years and today I went through it all and sorted what I wanted to keep and what was to throw away. This doesn’t count the stuff that I know is already at mom’s that I am already keeping.

The criteria for keeping it has to follow certain guidelines:

  • Could it contain private information?
  • Does this serve a purpose with the current technology trend?
  • Is it working in a state that I would use it on a daily basis?

If any one of these questions were answered ‘yes’, then I kept it. If not… well… it saw the dump.

A Year Long Semi-Sabbatical

Posted by Shane

Since last November, I been wanting to accomplish my goals in life and I tried to do it while maintaining my responsibilities to the online community in which I adore being part of. With that said though it’s been 7 months since then and I am no where close to accomplishing my goals due to the fact my current job had a wacky work schedule, which has now pretty much normalized since I been up here in Minnesota, but still very crazy indeed. There are sacrifices I need to make in order for the goals to happen.

I can say right off the bat that I am not leaving the WordPress Core Contributor Group, I am just making adjustments to my other commitments that are the real slow downs in my goals.

My week in NY

Posted by Shane

I been in NY for a little over a week now and it’s going to come to a quick end tomorrow when I fly back to MN for work. (The time I have to be ready for my ride in the morning is at 4:20am tomorrow. ugh). In any case I have had a great time, and as you see from my posts this past week I was able to do a lot. But it seems as always, what I set out to do this week didn’t happen.

Iron Man 2, Wowzers!

Posted by Shane

FYI.. if you do not know what ‘Wowzers’ is… you need to watch some Inpector Gadet. In any case, the movie was great. It picked up right where the first one left off and it was a non-stop action pack and it also had a pretty good story line as well. The comdey value in this one was much better in this one than the last one, however so this movie already does good in my books.

The only thing I am disappointed in is that Terrance Howard was not War Machine. Studios gotta realize that people love seeing continuity in movies and not having the same actor or actress in their respective roles makes a huge difference. If you go see this movie, you must wait until after the credits. Just like the first one, there is something directly after the credits are over.

Full Contact Mini-Golf

Posted by Shane

This afternoon before the wedding the groom, Jon, invited us guys under the age of 30, to play mini-golf. A total of 7 people playing and it was not your typically mini-golf where you play correctly. This golf was out of control putt however many times you wanted and destroy the other person shot. It wasn’t until half way through on hole 9 that instead of playing crazy golf we did bet shots. Some where crazy and some were just plain impossible, but we had a good time doing it. The people who were behind us were really patience with us.

I have some video and will try to get it online later, but lets just say that this golf was no where close to the real thing. Oh… 2 hours till Wedding. This is going to be a fun night!
