This is an awesome website for everything related to networking PC's. It features seven categories (Wireless, NAS, LANs and Routers, Multimedia, VoIP, Security and Everything Else). In each category, it features at least 5 information types (Reviews, News, HowTo's , Tutorials and Features). Additionally, it includes benchmark information for Wireless, NAS and LANs and Routers. This is an amazing resource.

The one that I'm most interested in is the LaCie Ethernet Disk mini, which is available from Newegg for $181.99. For less than $200, this is quite a piece of technology. It includes an SMB (Server Message Block) server, an iTunes server, an AFP server (great for Amy's Powerbook), an FTP Server and others. It contains an 500GB hard drive, which is sufficient to back up our notebooks and other PC's and contain a share iTunes library available to any PC on our network. This will contain every CD and our favorite DVD's. The great thing about this particular NAS device is that it is expandable. It has a USB2 port to which you can attach external USB drives (of which I have several) that will enable us to have a terabyte of data.

Based on the chilling Richard Matheson science fiction Classic "I am Legend" and later remade as "The Omega Man" starring Charlton Heston, and also "I am Legend", starring Will Smith. This classic features Vincent Price as scientist Robert Morgan in a post apocalyptic nightmare world. The world has been consumed by a ravenous plague that has transformed humanity into a race of bloodthirsty vampires. Only Morgan proves immune, and becomes the solitary vampire slayer.According to Wikipedia, this film is the most faithful of all three film adaptations and adheres fairly closely to the book.

Lynne Spears' Parenting Book Put On Indefinite Hold - News Story(For those of you who don't know, this is Britney and Jamie Lynn's mother)
You're right. It's probably just a coincidence.
I plan on trying this on an old PC sometime.
This is a pretty awesome way to watch some TV shows.

Ouch! Arkansas will miss Houston Nutt.

Bluetooth GPS's have gotten inexpensive recently. I bought a GlobalSat BT-328, but was initially unable to use it with my Verizon Motorola Q, because of Verizon disabling the Bluetooth Serial Port Profile. These instructions worked to get past that problem.
The GPS receiver is about the size of a Zippo lighter. Since it's Bluetooth, it requires no cable to the Q. Now when I use Google Maps Mobile and ask for directions, I can use my current location as the starting point. This should be very helpful as we start looking at houses to purchase.

You may wonder:
- Why did he title a blog post after the University of Georgia's war cry on a day when Auburn is playing LSU ?
- Why did he put a picture of a cat on blog post that is titled with a canine, rather than feline, theme.
Well, the answer to both is simple. Our cat, Sabrina, is very ill and the the doctors at Intown Animal Hospital referred us to the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. Yesterday, Amy drove Sabrina to Athens and she spent the night in the Intensive Care Unit. She was found to be anemic and hasn't eaten since Wednesday. She is in danger of a couple of life-threatening conditions and we want to be sure that we do the right thing by Sabrina.
She's been in our lives for 8.5 years. Amy and I picked her out together after we had been dating for about 5-6 months. We got her in February or March of 1999 and has lived with me (and later us) ever since. She was about a year old when we got her, so her tenth birthday is not far off. Please say a prayer or hold a good thought for the next few days.

For the past year, at least two Atlanta city workers have sat in a parked truck 24 hours a day, seven days a week in a lot on a hill overlooking the Midtown Place shopping center.
At a cost of untold thousands of public dollars, they sat, watched DVDs and ate fried chicken as they baby-sat a hole in the ground for which no one wants to take responsibility.
City workers have been sitting by the hole around the clock in case a big pump has to be turned on. Officials say they are unable to estimate how much the watch operation has cost.

In October, Paul Stanley of Kiss is coming to a gallery in the Perimeter Mall in Atlanta. He will be doing a meet and greet with the purchase of his art. The pieces start out at about $1500, so I'm sure that they're prints. This is his self-portrait, but you can see all of them at his website.

I'll try to supply some pictures of my first ride (provided I am able to protect my enormous melon).
This is the helmet I ordered this afternoon. There are two questions that might immediately jump to mind. Here are the answers to those two questions.
- I am purchasing an ATV for the heck of it
- My huge head is so large that a helmet must be special-ordered. If I only had a normal (or even an extra large) human-sized cranium, then I could have had my pick of 100 different models that were in stock.
There was a sign hanging from The Chop House that showed "758*" and there were people that were holding up asterisks and even wearing asterisks on their shirts. The asterisk, of course, indicate that the record over hometown hero Hank Aaron is tainted.

There are a couple of obvious (to me) omissions:
Let me know your favorite guitarist that was left off the list...
This weekend, our friend Kerri was in town to visit her Aunt Mary. The four of us went to see the Indigo Girls qt the Atlanta Botanical Garden. This was the second time I've seen them. If you've never seen them, I would highly recommend it.
It was close to two hours of Amy and Emily on the stage alone with their two guitars. They just rock like few acts I've ever seen.

Why would the City of Atlanta waste taxpayers money by sending a stamped postcard and answering two unnecessary phone calls for no reason? If the postcard is deemed to be of some value, then they should change the wording to something like this:
This notice is to inform you that the report you made to the Atlanta Police Department has been sent to the Zone 6 Investigations Unit. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me. Please note the Incident report is listed in the bottom left corner of the postcard.Why just Spanish and English ? Why not Japanese ?
