Today was fun. My dad may get my mom a new computer so I get the old one and replace that Vaio. He is looking at a small eMachines over at Staples but not sure yet. Supper today was Old Country Buffet, pretty good but crowded.

Weather was a little chilly today and tomorrow will be 36 and AM snow showers. I put the Titan back on the Slash for now. I will be getting 32 pitch gears since I am sick of the 48 pitch ones stripping easy. I need to find out the exact gearing I need before I order something this time.

Well heres a weird issue. I have no text on any of the menus on Open Office on the Vaio. Something is wrong. I thought when I followed a guide to install 3.0.1 I screwed it up. I reinstalled a fresh version of 8.10 on Vaio since I wanted to redo everything but its still broken.

Supper today was minute steaks and French fries. Weather today was wet but kind of warm. Tomorrow will be 34 and a little windy. I am going to start trying to learn something again. Not C++ this time but Python. I am also trying to arrange my room for a desktop better again. Always fun!

Well today was fun. I ended up resizing the partition on the Toshiba. Vista is officially gone. I lost all my ratings in iTunes for some reason and like 500 news ones from iPod because I didn’t know what happened. Thanks Apple.

Weather was nice today and I even ran the Slash a little until the gear mesh started to give me issues. I will have to get more pinion gears in different sizes. Supper today was Papa Johns. Weather for tomorrow is 55 and rain and windy.

Well today was fun, I made 20 bucks raking some bean pods from my neighbors yard. Weather was really nice today and I got a new keyboard and mouse for that old Vaio. I am going to try and get a better desktop though.

Weather for tomorrow will be 48 with AM rain showers with some freezing drizzle. Supper was artichokes from Price Chopper, really good. And a dollar each so we had 3. I may take a walk tomorrow since a guy here has HAM radio antennas up and I want to see how he made his, or where he got them.

Well I set up that old Vaio again. I am using this for a temporary desktop until I can find something better. I have Ubuntu 8.10 on it and a friend is sending me 2 128MB sticks of RAM. Sony says I can use 512MB max, and this will bump me to 384MB.

Supper today was friend chicken and macaroni and cheese. Weather was kind of chilly today and tomorrow will be 42, wow nice and warm compared to what we have had. I may play with my Slash tomorrow. My tower stuff came early.

Well, today was kind of boring. It was windy so I stayed inside. I got Open Office 3 installed on Toshiba though. I really need to boot Vista and get it set up to be useful. Right now, its pretty useless. I do have iTunes installed for the iPod though.

Weather tomorrow will be 31 and not as windy. I has Salisbury streak patties in gravy, peas, and mashed potatoes, today. Pretty good with gravy for a change, they are not as dry. I have been looking into the HAM radios again and plan on making my antenna soon so I can see if this thing works!

Well today was fun. We watched two movies. Open Season 2, and the new Mummy, Plus we watched Horton Hears a Who yesterday. Supper today was pasta. Came out really good too. Weather was nice and didn’t get any snow except a dusting. Tomorrow will be 27 and windy.

I played with the BB gun a little bit today. I tried shooting a can full of ice with a pellet and 10 pumps from about 15 feet back and it didn’t go through. I don’t like using pellets because they cost more. Ubuntu is still working well so lets see what happens.
