Still Recovering

Well, I'm digging the laptop. It's really nice to be able to use it wherever I want. With a laptop and wireless network, I can post from anywhere in the house.

Had an interesting issue with my tunes. I wasn't able to save the music on the computer when it went belly up (obviously). Most of it, however, existed on my iPod. Shortly after getting this one up and working, I plug in the iPod so I can get my stuff set up. Immediately it tells me that the iPod is not synchronized with this computer, and asks if I'd like to replace the data on the iPod with what I have on the computer. "Uh...NO." It doesn't allow you to pull music off (or even look at it) without synchronizing, but synchronizing means dumping the music, some of which I don't have backed up. So, I did what any good geek would do: I went to their website and found someone asking the same question. Luckily, there was a fairly simple solution. I only lost a couple songs that hadn't been sent to the iPod yet.

I found (oh, ok, MathNerd sent to me) an extremely interesting website. It's another blog called PostSecret. It involves people snail-mailing their deep secrets in on postcards. Some are disturbing, some are funny, some will really make you think, and some may make you tear up. New secrets every Sunday (how appropriate).

Have fun, everyone! And please remind me of the stuff I forgot.

From the ashes...

I now have a new computer. A beautiful, sleek, little laptop. I lost most of the data I had on the desktop, but I'm still hanging in there. One of the hardest losses is the list of bookmarks I had. I can't even remember what most of them were, much less what the URLs were.

I also managed to get Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for my XBox. That game is immense! Not only geographically (the first part of the game you can roam in is the size of the entire map from Vice City), but also in gameplay. Now, you not only have to deal with all the things you did in previous games, but you also have to improve the character's statistics, keep him fed, and a host of other things I haven't even discovered yet.

And tomorrow, I'll be going to Busch Gardens with my office. What a great deal.

So, anyway, if there are any URLs you think I need, send them my way!
