My dad is off this week so we went out today. I finally found the BFC and Heavy Metal cans of Monster! They are 4.29 so I didn’t get one today. I did get a low carb Rockstar though. I didn’t drink it right away since my stomach is acting up and I didn’t want to risk it while I wasn’t home.

I got a new toy again today! Well, I got 2 things technically. I took back that Dynadock thing today and got the 9 cell battery that Office Depot had on sale for 110 versus 150 normally. That is only 10 more than the plain 6 cell one!

The second toy I got is an HP 95LX DOS PDA! I need to find a way to get software onto it somehow so I could get the flash card I have to work. The thing that bothers me is since I don’t have a serial cable and can’t seem to find a way to beam it over. I can’t get my files off it!

Supper today was barbecue chicken wings on the grill. I love barbecue chicken! The weather was pretty warm today and it will be 74 and scattered thunder storms tomorrow. We may get some tonight and we got a nice one last night with tons of lightning!

We got a thunder storm this morning but I slept through it. I spent 2 hours cutting grass today. 1 hour of it was swinging around a heavy brush cutter so my arms are sore. It was kind of warm today. It is going to be 79 and thunder storms tomorrow.

I seen something really funny today at Best Buy. The store model Xbox 360 had the dreaded red ring of death on it. I had Subways for supper today. I got a meatball hoagie with extra cheese. I really enjoyed it but I think next time I want to get a turkey hoagie instead. They want 2 bucks for extra meat too! What a rip off!

I don’t know if I said this yesterday but I am going to learn C++ again. As I said before I want to start making some software with some friends. I am going to start a new webaite for it soon. I will probably use 110MB hosting since its free and works pretty good. I will make some other stuff like email accounts and such.

Weather was nice today and we may get some thunder storms tonight and tomorrow. I have 2 lawns to cut and a little weed whacking. Supper today was Long John Silver’s and it was really good. The bad thing is that I am really thirsty now.

My friend finally has Internet AND WIFI now! It is a miracle!

The weather was nice today and we even got some thunder storms. One of the storms even had small hail! Now that is what I call a nice a storm! It will be 83 and sunny tomorrow so I guess the heat is on its ways back again.

Supper today was French fries and chicken sandwiches. What is great is that we got the new water cooler hooked up so I will probably drink a lot more water now. I also have some news that I am going to start learning C++ again!

Well today was fun. I did two the lawns this week today and tomorrow I only have one left to do and weed whacking and I am done till Sunday. The weather was pretty nice today and will be just a little warmer tomorrow. I would be so happy if the summer stays like this!

Supper today was left over lasagna we had in the freezer and came out really good. Sometimes the left over stuff tastes better. I got the 2GB SD card in from Sandisk today which is great. The weird thing is the new one is purple. Oh well, it’s going to be inside a camera anyway right?

I installed my old copy of Half Life 2 and it works on this laptop. I didn’t play much yet so I don’t know if I will still get the memory dump errors I used to get on the old Acer. I have to see if I could play Bioshock on the Toshiba since I don’t feel like waiting for the PS3 version to come out. Its only 20 bucks for the computer version now.

I am thinking of planning a little rant soon. I am not really sure what to rant about and whether or not it will be a blog entry or an article. I usually keep articles reserved for specific topic rants. I am not sure if I want to work off an outline this time or not. I may just do a free rant.

This Dynadock is kind of nice really. I am only using it as a USB hub for now though since I have the laptop on the WiFi network. I don’t have anything that needs a serial port either. The VGA port is useful but I don’t have a need for a dual monitor setup right now. The audio is nice but I just use headphones on the laptop itself. I don’t have anything to use with the optical audio though. There is one issue I still need to fix though. The screen flickers a bit on a resume since its looking for the dock. I am going to take it back this weekend I think.

Supper today was artichokes and I have to say these may have been the best ones I have ever had. They had a slightly sweet taste too. The weather was nice but we got some rain today. I heard some thunder though. It will be 70 and cloudy tomorrow.

I got a new accessory for my laptop. I was at Office Depot today and they had this Toshiba Dynadock for 60 bucks. It has 6 USB ports, LAN, audio, serial, and VGA. It is very useful as a USB hub to me. The thing is normally like 150 bucks so this was a good deal!

I had perigees for supper today. They were pretty bland since dad got the wrong ones. I found some new mints at Walmart today that have caffeine in them. I am not sure of the exact amount though. The weather was chilly today and I got caught in some rain. It will be 63 and showers tomorrow.
