On my way to work this morning I got clipped by a UPS trailer.... bastages. Here's the excerpt from a post on one of my web sites solo2.org
“got squeezed by one of the two trailer'd rigs on Jefferson this morning, he came into my lane and I slowed to get behind him but the back corner of the trailer bout took my mirror off, cracked the housing, and ended up clipping the front fender/bumper and the front wheel. I imagine it's over 1k in damage, with wheel replacement and painting the front end, plus a new mirror housing, assuming the electronics aren't hosed in the mirror.“
I take care of my car, and I HATE it when something like this happens. The guy that was driving was like “I didn't even see anyone over there, I didn't know people drove in that lane”
I've released the cDotText source for Version 0.1.1, you can get it from the DnnCart.com Downloads page.
All I did was copy the project out of my solution and upload it, so you'll have to modify it some to get it to work with your own solution. If you have any questions try posting in the DnnCart Forums.
I've never put up a project for download before, so GO EASY ON ME! It may not be easy to get into your own project, so let me know if I need to change anything in the Zip file to make it easier to use.
Reading this CNN article it appears the Xbox may take a substantial price drop later this year. I can honestly say I have never played an Xbox, or even really seen one in person. I was one of those guys who camped out for a PS2, took the next day off work, and had a blast. But since the first few months of owning the PS2 I have used it far more for DVDs that playing games.
If the Xbox drops to $99 maybe I'll pick one up. I also now live closer to a buddy of mine, and console games are always more fun with two people, rather than one. So maybe my console gaming will pick up, maybe not though, maybe I'll just stick with BF1942 and Counterstrike.

There's a patch available for all versions of DNN 1.0.6 thru 1.0.10d. I don't know if it's a big whole, it isn't on any of my sites, but if you run an instance of DNN I'd recommend you apply the patch. I went ahead and got all my sites this morning.

I love the snow! As a kid we lived all over, and never seemed to live anywhere where it snowed, so when it snows now I just love it. My dog runs around like mad in it, people drive like idiots in it, but I still love it! I especially love having a garage now to keep out of the weather. I am glad that I got new tires though, these Falken Ziex 512s are awesome compared to the Bridgestones I had before.
We were supposed to get five inches here in St. Louis last night, but I think we ended up getting about an inch or so, on top of the inch or slush/ice from the day before. Hope everyone else is enjoying whatever weather they have right now!
There were a few folks interested in my post a few days back about Orkut, I bet some of you made it in. I have yet to see it still (hint hint) but what do you think of it so far? I've never signed up with any social networking sites, or whatever people are calling them, so I really have no idea what to expect.
Is it anything interesting? Worth looking at? What are your thoughts?
I've had quite a few downloads (14) of cDotText so far, and actually two people have given me feedback! It looks like a snowstorm is headed our way this afternoon so it'll be a night in on the computer.
Which truely is just about everynight anyways. Tonight I hope to get a Source Code version out for release, and two minor changes, a trigger inclusion that will catch changes to a user's DNN password that will change it in the blog_config table, and some CSS changes to the BloggersList module.
I put up a new Christoc.com
tonight. It's been a while since I updated that site with anything other than a logo and a few links. Hopefully over the next few weeks I'll write up some project summaries of the past projects to put on the site to provide a little more meat!
I forgot how not fun moving really is. I am a darn packrat, and I've somehow gotten into this Hot Wheels hobby that hasn't exactly made for more room around my apartment! About now is the time I wish I had gotten a different car, it doesn't exactly hold much. Luckily I've got my (business) partner's 24ft enclosed trailer. I've barely cracked the surface loading it, but he and another guy will be over around 9am (it's midnight now) to help load everything else into the trailer. I guess anything I don't get tomorrow I can get Sunday if I borrow one of Dave's trucks, at least tomorrow we can get all of the stuff that needs two people and the trailer. Night all..
Well, I've managed to make my first for public consumption software release.... I started working on a .Text module for DNN, with the help of Patrick Santry, and decided to take it a little further. The outcome is cDotText for DNN.
It's available for download at DnnCart.com, it's still quite limited, but for the most part stable. I'll hopefully spend some more time on it next week and build up the functionality more. I was really trying to get this done before this weekend, as I am moving tomorrow, so my PC will be down for a little while as I work on getting situated in the house.
If you run DNN take a look at the module, let me know what you think, being this is my first release I'd like some input on the work so I can learn what to do better next time. Now it's time to head home to pack up the trailer for the trek across town tomorrow! The good news, the Car will be in a garage tomorrow night for it's first covered night's sleep, and the dog will have a fenced yard to roam around in!
