Like everyone else with too much free time on their hands, I too have a web log (or blog for short).  Entries are listed newest to oldest but only the latest 10 are displayed initially.  If you want to view more entries, modify the ordering or sorting, etc, just use the sub-navigation or table pagination links to get your desired result.  Just note that the older the blog entry, the higher the chances are that the links contained within it are no longer working.

Thanks to my web host, Philippe, I now have the alpha version of MySQL installed on my new Fedora Linux UML. So far I've managed to use the newer MySQL Date and Time functions with much glee. Now I'll have to update a number of my templates to take advantage of the new output values. Joy, o joy!

What happened to KDL 103.1 FM (The death of dance in So.Cal)

I just noticed that my favorite (and only) electronic / techno radio station, KDL 103.1, that replaced my Groove 103.1, is no longer playing the dance tunes that I've come to enjoy with much zest and zeal. Appearently, in it's place seems to have popped up Indie 103 - a throwback to the 'KROQ-of-old'; playing alternative oldies (80's -n- 90's) with a spattering of new alternative ( more details ). While I'm not offended by the content of the new format (being over the age of 30), I still want my electronica station and this one. For the time being, there doesn't seem to exist another station playing a dance format in the So. California area anymore. I want my KDL dance format too!...please [whimper] :-S

Hahaha...Analysis in to the age-old question: What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen Swallow? If you don't get it, you really should watch this. Run away! Run away!

Steelcase-featured pneumatic keyboard lift

While working on a contract for AAA, I noticed, while installing some new PC workstations, that the Steelcase modular office furniture that they had included a pneumatic keyboard lift. Now, I know keyboard lifts have been around for some time but the unique thing about this one is that it requires no 'tilting' of the shelf to adjust it's height. Instead, located under the shelf is a finger pull that goes back to the pnuematic to release it. This means that you don't have to worry about spilling your keyboard and mouse on the floor while trying to adjust your shelf. I've looked around but haven't had any luck tracking down the specifics of the hardware. Any help locating the manufacturer of this nifty gadget would be great.

Back from a weekend in San Diego and a 5 hour trip into TJ. I was extremely disappointed to find out that there are no more Churro carts allowed on the street! They still have the bacon-wrapped hotdogs and elote (corn) carts but no more Churro carts. Unfortunately, my high school spanish was unable to assertain WHY this was the case as 6 months ago, they were out on the street next to all the other carts. If somebody knows what happened to pull all the churro carts off the streets of TJ, let me know.

My Windows XP 32-bit ATAPI 137 gig limitation headache

Well...my Maxtor 5000DV External 200gig USB2/Firewire drive decided to crap out on me (amber light remains on). Emails and calls to Maxtor would have me believe that the drive was toast...but I've too much data on the damn thing to give it up. I decided to open the thing up (and void my warrenty). I hooked the drive as a secondary drive and ran WinXP CHKDSK in a DOS shell to find (and fix) a ton of problems. Some of the files are gone but the majority of the data is intact (THANK GOD!). After I lost some of my files as a result of doing the CHKDSK (of course), one of the guys I work with told me about Microsoft's Win XP 137 gig 32-bit to 48-bit ATAPI fix. Seems the problem occurred when I took my external 200 gig drive to my brother-in-laws and (USB) plugged into his PC which didn't have the latest ATAPI file, triggering the 137 gig barrier limitation. Yet another reason to switch to Linux? I'm almost there.
