Well, my dad was in town yesterday and today for work. So we went out to dinner tonight. We headed into STL and it got darker and darker. We ate at McGurk's, then headed back home. Got here and the lights didn't work, oh wait, that's because the power is out... great...
So I headed out to the shop and picked up my new Koni's for the 350z. Cut out some new solo2.org vinyl decals (reflective baby) and then headed back home about 2 hours later. The power is still out, so I've been walking around with a flashlight in hand. I left my damn maglight out at the shop, so I'll be without that till I can go get it.
I called the power company, only 10 homes are without power around me, across the street the power is on. They tell me it will be 1pm before the power is restored, and that's just an estimate... There are 25k other people in STL without power, ouch, sucks to be a linesman tonight.
Luckily my laptop has been charging for a few days, so I can get on here and post. I can't seem to get to my email, but that's a whole different story I can't post about :)
Hope everyone's having a good night!
Well, it's been about 3 months since I switched phone service, and unlocked my MPX200.
For the most part things have been alright with T-Mobile. The only bug I have is that it ALWAYS says I have 2 SMS messages, yet when I try to view them they don't exist. I think another hard reset will probably fix that, but I don't know if I want to go through that again, and I'm not sure how it will react with a hard reset on an unlocked phone?
Google seems to love this topic, so here are some keywords. MPX200 Unlock, hard reset.
Any softies out there know a solution to this problem?
I've got email processing rules in Outlook 2k3, they are processing mail out of the junk email folder. I want them to run, but not to hit the junk email folder at all. I've seen this posted a few places on the net, but no one seems to have a solution?
I went to Costco yesterday to buy some groceries. I ALWAYS end up spending WAY too much money at Costco, and yesterday was no exception.
I was walking through the PC section, looking at something to jump out at me, when I ran across the Microsoft MN-700. I've been meaning to get wifi in the house, so I can hook up my Tivo to it, which will then force me to buy a DVD-R. I just haven't wanted to spend $100 on a linksys 802.11g router. Well Costco here in St. Louis had the MN-700 for $39.99, along with a USB 2.0 Wifi adapter for $29.99. I bought both. I setup the Wifi as an access point, along with my linksys router, and had everything up and running in 15 minutes tops.
I had my laptop out in the garage yesterday afternoon while I installed speakers in my 350Z.
The next project is to get my Tivo USB ports activated and get it accessible from my desktop, then I'll be in trouble :)
In December I hooked up Wifi for my parents
Is everyone just going to rub teched in for those of us, majority, that aren't there?
I wish I could have gone, and hopefully next year I will, but I don't want to read about it anymore! Not until I am ready to start planning to go myself! So save all us unfortunate souls the pain of reading how much fun you are having in SD, how much you are learning, and just go take a cold swim in the ocean!
***the above post is half in jest :) ***
I've release a new version of cDotText for DNN 2.0 today. It has new enhancements from the version that was released yesterday.
Check it out.
A new setting has been added to the editBlogDisplay and EditBloggers controls. This setting, “Use WWW” allows for admins to have their .Text links built using WWW. Prior version of cDotText did not allow for this, and when using a Virtual Directory setup created links such as http://DnnCart.com/blogs/ instead of http://www.dnncart.com/blogs/.
GroupID on bloggers was always 1, no matter what settings were entered. This has been corrected.
Fix on the editBloggers control, the group ID was not loading when the module was loaded in edit mode, even though it is getting saved into the database.
cDotText is a module for DotNetNuke that partially integrates DNN users with .Text users, so that admins can run .Text on their DNN site.
I just got back, from the first show of Velvet Revolver's tour. It was AMAZING!
If they are coming to your town and you can get tickets, go see them.
They were at the Pageant here in St. Louis tonight. I wish I had purchased tickets for the KC show, I'd drive out there tomorrow!
VR is Scott Wieland from STP, Slash Duff and Matt from GnR. They played a few STP songs (3-4?) and a few GnR songs, as well as a lot of their own music. I'm waiting anxiously for their album to be released in June. My first concert was STP at Arco Arena in Sacramento back in 94, and I must say, I've seen Scott 3 times now, and every time it's great. My first show was by far the best concert I've ever been to, and I've seen lots of big names, big venues, small venues.
So like I said, if you get a chance to see Velvet Revolver, do it, you won't be disappointed.
If you want .Net related topics, their site appears to be done in classic ASP :P
So I was trying to sign on to Orkut a few minutes ago, and I got this response.
Interesting, now I'm hungry...
Well, I have a week off in between jobs. I have a number of things that I want to get accomplished this week.
The first task being to finally upgrade solo2.org to DNN 2.0.
That task is done! I spent most of today twisting and tweaking things to get the site ready for upgrade. I think it's much friendlier for most browsers now, the DNN 1.0.10e version of solo2.org didn't work well in anything but IE.
If you have a moment, check the site out, let me know what you think!
Being that last week I was still technically working getting ChrisHammond.com upgraded wasn't really a task for this week, but I did get that up and running as well.
I still have a number of other things to do. Getting STLSCCA.Org onto DNN 2.0 is probably the next web task, along with getting a release of DnnCart out for public consumption.
