Weekend Getaway

Tomorrow, Amy and I are each working until about noon and then we're driving to Asheville, North Carolina for the weekend. We're going to stay in a cabin and we'll see an old friend from Austin, who moved there about the time we moved to Atlanta.

We haven't booked every minute of our time there, so check out the Official 2007 Visitor Guide to Asheville, NC and make a suggestion for something we should do!

DIY: 200 Dollar PC

DIY: 200 Dollar PC -
Looking for a small and affordable computer to add to your collection of boxen? I’m not talking about the Everex gPC, OLPC or the Asus Eee PC. I’m talking about building your own mini-ITX form factor computer. For around $200 you can have a computer with the following specs: 1.2GHz Intel Celeron 220 processor, 1GB DDR2 RAM, 250GB SATA hard drive and a small 90W power supply - more than enough juice to run your favorite Linux distro.

Free iTunes Downloads

This is an awesome blog where they list free content on iTunes and it goes beyond songs; there are TV shows and short movies. There are some LOST recaps on there today in preparation for Season 4, which begins this month!

Not quite as catchy...

I can't drive five.

I got a buddy in Austin..

...who has one of these that's not quite this pimped out. Ewan, this one's for you!

We strolled over to Quattro tonight for dinner. They make a great hummus. It was a nice evening on their patio. Amy had Rosemount Chiraz and I had Birra Moretti. I doubt that the next place we live will have so many restaurants within walking distance.

New experiences in 2008!

I've done a couple things this year that I haven't experienced before. I tried Muenster cheese and today I had a dog pee on me.

Yep, you read that right...Muenster. Oh, you meant the other thing...

OK, here goes. I'm walking down the hall of our apartment complex to the elevator, because I have stuff to take down to the garbage. I hear a man and his dog walking behind me and so I stop to push the elevator button and the dog runs up in front of me, so I say "Nice dog" and start to pet him and the owner of the dog says "Move your foot!!". It is about three seconds until I realize that the dog has just peed all over my foot (and shoe). Luckily, I was wearing Crocs, so they washed out easily.

This was an awesome Christmas gift. It's a charging station for our devices. This has my new camera battery charger, our Bluetooth headsets and both of our phones and we still have room for other devices. If you have a geek in your life, especially one with a very organized wife, this will make a great gift. Thanks Sara!
