On a lighter note...

FEMA has declared Eric Cantor (R-VA) the House Republican Majority Leader a disaster area. This happened one day after Mr. Cantor did something to withhold funds for tornado disaster relief. Get all the juicy details here.

I did it! I finally got the payloader battery all charged up and started the damn thing! I am happy about this and drove that sucker right in to the manure pile. It's nice to have that pile pushed back now.

On a whole different note, I picked up a Motorola Xoom Android tablet over the weekend. Darn nice piece of hardware though I'm not sure how it will fit in my daily work flow. After two days I am missing my laptop for some things and may go back to it. We'll see.

Mac's no longer safe!

For years Mac users have poked and prodded PC users about virus infections and how their Mac's are amazingly immune to the problem. A few years back I saw two Mac servers and a desktop get taken down by a nasty infection in our IT department so I knew it was just a matter of time.

Today the problem is getting worse as Macs take off in popularity, we find that Mac users are no different from PC users in the virus world.

* Support Reps told not to confirm Mac infections.

* AppleCare support rep says infections are getting worse.

It isn't ever a nice thing when your computer gets something it shouldn't and you lose control and data. Still after years of jeering from Mac users I can't help but let out a little "Tee Hee!"

What do I want?

I read a comment on some forum that said there are two questions everyone asks in life.

"Why am I here?"


"What do I want?"

Well I think the first one was answered for me after this past February more clearly. It's to take care of those that raised me and go on remembering them when they're gone. Aunts, Uncles, God Parents, Parents, Grandma's, Grandpa's, etc.'

Now the second question "What do I want?" I always asked myself without even thinking about it seriously. What do I want?

Well based on my life so far, to smile. I like laughing, I like making others laugh over time. I'm not really a comedian but I enjoy doing that when it happens.

Some would say wife, kids, etc. I've not had that luxury in my life yet and I'm thinking I may never have that. I've met some wonderful women and some not so wonderful women. Some of the really good ones were already married and/or far away.

So all I got to fall back on is a smile.

Now I just have to figure out what to do for lunch since I got all that other stuff sorted out now.

I have totally reached a new conclusion...

I'm really enjoying Champions Online more then WoW game wise. My little comparison below wasn't too far off on how things work, I could refine it more but I'd just say go and play the game since it's free to play up to max level.

The best part about the whole game I found is the fact that all my characters look the way I want them to and I can find more costume pieces along with regular gear to use on existing or new characters. In World of Warcraft I hated how my night elf druid from 2004 never had the bear claw hands I wanted him to get. That bugged me every single day even when I played my Tauren and couldn't get him to look the way I wanted at all times of game play.

I still miss people from Feathermoon and would love to be able to gab with with them regularly. RP was always fun there and people came up with some fun and crazy characters. CO isn't bad either, I finally found an RP super group (guild) and things are going pretty good. I think I tapped in to the role play community on CO and it's pretty good.

I only have a few characters but here's the stable I got so far. It's amazing the diversity of looks you can come up with. From a regular grumpy old dwarf in plate to angels, demons, semi-modern soldiers, and even zombies! The random look generator is even more wild in the creations it sometimes comes up with.

I decided to be brave and follow the path of Grizz with some characters. Never really rolled female characters before but I've done an even mix as you can see.

Can't wait till they come out with secret lairs in CO. It'll be fun sticking my zombie guy in the "Parents Basement" themed secret lair.

Osama is gone.

Late in mentioning it but I noticed on Sunday night they finally got him. Can't say that I'm overly happy (Yet I am happy) because wishing for someone dead isn't a good thing. Then again this fellow wasn't exactly a wonderful person to begin with since he did head up the group that caused the attacks on 9/11.

Ah well, at least the world is a safer place since that nut job is gone. Now if only they could find that crazy Waldo guy! Him and his red and white striped shirt have been the bane of my picture hunting expeditions since forever! *shakes fist*
