22. February 2011

1 Comment

So FTD responded to my tweet on Friday afternoon, shortly after my second tweet regarding the fact that I had still not received a response. They requested that I send a message to another customer service e-mail address, which I did. Keep in mind that things were fresh in my mind when I wrote this. […]

Another Touch Panel is operational…

About a year ago, I found a great deal on a 19″ touch screen on eBay (which would be the only place I would ever go to if I wanted another touch screen – brand new screens are simply not a good deal, in my opinion). As a result, the 15″ that I had currently […]

So last year I wrote a bit about my weight loss goals. Then, I stopped. To recap, last year was a roller coaster of a year from a weight loss standpoint. On January 4, 2010, I was tipping the scales at 244. By April 5, I was down to 199 (which put me in 3rd […]

Last night, during a card game at my house, a friend came up the stairs from the basement and said, “hey, there’s a siren going off in your basement”. I was able to run downstairs […]

So I am in the process of searching for a BMW Wind Deflector Screen for my 2002 BMW Convertible… I will be damned if I am going to spend $450… I began searching on Craigslist – BINGO! I found one – and it was cheap! The problem was that the ad was 2 weeks old […]

So it is now one week since I entered my company’s Biggest Loser challenge. Since then I have lost a total of 6.5 pounds. I am a little disappointed in myself since I binged a bit at a friend’s house over the weekend. They graciously provided a healthy spread of pigs in a blanket, shrimp, […]

So it is now 2010 and of course, I find myself looking in the mirror and realizing I have to lose weight. Who am I kidding – I don’t need to look in the mirror, I know I have gained weight. Just two months ago, I ran my first marathon. Since then, I have managed […]

Imagine arriving home after work and replaying the day’s events. Who you spoke to… who you saw… what you experienced… You could fast forward, rewind, and pause. Sound strange? Yes indeed. But it is out there, and Microsoft is investing money in it. You can read more of it from Microsoft here. Enter the SenseCam […]
