Well, here we are again! Going to aim for a weekly bit, since theres just too much involved in trying to update things daily at the moment. I placed an ad in a local circulation for computer repair and business blew up in my face. I’ve been covered up with computer work for the past week or two. This is a double edged sword as well, since the majority of the customers are residential and want me after my usual cutoff at 5pm or so. I’ve just been rolling with the changes and doing what I can to balance love-life, work, home, and play time.
I finished Fable 2 yesterday, which pleased me greatly. I was not a fan of the original in any way, but I was surprised to find this one felt a bit more….complete? It could have had everything to do with the amount of time the first title was in development, but the sequel has a lot more polish to it. Trying to be “good” is tough as the little devil on one’s shoulder is given every opportunity to kick you upside the head and tell you all the wonderful bad things you can do! At the end of the day, I can always kick chickens and retain my good karma/morality/purity points.
This past Thursday I took advantage of a deal with Best Buy and picked up 7 copies of You’re in the Movies with Xbox Live Vision cameras, free of charge. Apparently Best Buy wanted these units long gone, since they had a Reward Zone deal to make the title $10 and then stacked a coupon for $10 off the title, at three copies per purchase. I may see if we can do a contest at teh-Nook to give these things away, as theyre useful even without an Xbox as a Webcam for the PC or I even hear the PS3 supports them.
Ironwork is still a bit stale, but there is good news on the horizon. There is a big project coming up with a Union outfit out of Georgia. The best news is this job is located in downtown Montgomery! We’re talking 5 minutes from the house. What I wouldn’t give to have such a wonderful job that close to the house. It’s a high-rise and should last upwards to one year, possibly more. The bad news? It doesn’t kick off until July or August. Of course with computer work as swell as it is, who needs Ironwork?
We also had one hell of a flood Thursday, which I will likely post pictures of here or in the flickr account. Currently working on how to get the flickr feed to show in wordpress, so bear with me. I repair em, I don’t build websites on em! Water was up past the ankles in the backyard most of the day with many places in Montgomery seeing anywhere from 7-10 inches of water in about 4-5 hours or so. Needless to say, we’re well above average in this area for rain, after being 3 inches short for the majority of 2009 thusfar.
Well, time to get back at it. Finished one appointment up a little while ago, and now my second is coming up. Be well!
