Where to start?

Well, first and formost, you’re now talking to Gunnery Sargent Doc. Quit your eyeballin’ recruit! Also, I’ve got all the crazy sigs working. I figure I’ll incorporate this into the site somewhere.

Name and Online Status
Score, Kills, Deaths, and Time
SPM, KPM, DPM, and K:D Ratio
All Awards (minus stars and purple heart)

BTW, the top one is randomly changing. Refresh and enjoy 🙂

Next, my mouse is dead. VERY DEAD. My wonderful, awesome, RARE, Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 has ceased to be. I don’t know if you know it or not, but Microsoft put out the IE3 mouse as a Pro version of their original Explorer mouse. No one really knows why it has a 3.0 version number. They discontinued it shortly after making it, instead focusing on the IE4 mouse, the one with that god-awful “tilt wheel”. Even when you install the Intellipoint software, it skips the v3 version and only lists “Explorer Mouse, Explorer Mouse 2.0 and Explorer Mouse 4.0”. So, not only can you not find the mouse, if you have the mouse, it’s completely unsupported. It’s also the best mouse I’ve EVER used. Ever. And I’ve used a few.

So, the replacement process has begun. It’s my birthday in a week or two so Lauren’s gotten a few emails with links to mice I think I might like to own… only as a hint of course. Top of my list is the Logitech G5.

It’s laser. It’s running at 2000dpi. It’s got a removeable, customizable “weight catridge” to make the mouse heavier or lighter. Best of all, and this is my main motivation, it’s got on-the-fly sensitivity adjustments. How cool is that?

The top of the line Razor mouse is also a maybe, but I’m heavily leaning towards to Logitech at this point. I’ve got 5 other Logitech devices on my desk and none of them have ever disappointed me.

Moving on, SavvyNation is taking shape, as well as a mini-design for Chris (fear not bud, it will be done). I’ll be sending out a mass email (or posting it here too) about the purpose of the site as well as asking for suggestions on designs, content etc. I’ll also be looking for a right hand man/editor who can devote nearly as much time to it as I can. If anyone is exceptionally un-busy at the moment, let me know.

That’s about it for the moment. Hope everyone had a good holiday. I’ll post more shortly.

My Turkey Day

Its been a pretty good Thanksgiving here. The whole family had the traditional Texan feast of Cajun fried turkey and sweet potatoes. Very tasty. Now we’re taking a break between dinner and desert and watching Batman Begins while the ladies are sifting through ads for tomorrow black friday sales.

Hope everyone is having a good day. Later.

It lives

It’s not like it’s the story of the century, we’re not releasing a new iPod or anything but….



So many things…

Have I bitched about having so many things I wanted to do before? I think I have. And did I mention my complete lack of motivation for any of them? Probably. Well, Lauren and I were talking over dinner last night and she suggested I divide the things I want to do into categories and then pick 1 and don’t start another until I finish it. As she pointed out, I have Monday’s all to myself and could do any of this if I really wanted to. She’s right of course, she’s always more practical than I am. So, here goes. This is a list, mostly for myself, based on cost, time and priority.

-Mod a keyboard. $5 in paint and an hour or two in drying time.
-Update this page with a better theme
-Finish my Drupal install (that Chris helped me start, thanks Chris!)
-Design a layout for Chris’ new page
-Adjust TCC logo’s for tshirt printing and submit them

Under $50/Medium Length (day or two):
-Register and setup new domain (secret project)
-Mod my Xbox (mod chip + new hard drive)
-Mod my 2nd case (basic mod, paint only)
-Redesign TCC page

Expensive/Time Consuming:
-Design afor mentioned secret project (free but time consuming)
-Heavily RE-Mod my current case (going all out this time)
-Build a car-puter/mp3 player
-Build a HTPC for the living room (cross off if Xbox mod is successful)

That’s all I can think of at the moment. I’m sure there’s more in the back of my head somewhere… Now, where should I start???
