FHE At The Jones House
PoeticIntensity

This post is mostly for my parents.  (Hi Mom).  I thought you'd enjoy hearing a night of FHE in the Jones residence. :) There should be a little "play" button right below the mood panel in the upper right-hand corner of the journal detail page. Enjoy....

Server Down! (Temporarily)
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Wow....   This will probably be a short entry, but I thought I'd write down what is the first hardware failure of my server! I built this server 3 years ago, and it has been serving up everything that is served in my house (mythtv, web (this site), ftp, ssh, music, photos).  Well... Yesterday evening, we tried to fire up mythtv...

Man... I'm not entirely sure what happened this year, but conference was amazing! I've already told you what I thought of the first session (Sat. 10-noon session).  The next two sessions were gonna be equally amazing. With two children, it's hard, but not impossible, to really concentrate on what is going on with conference.  There ar...

Conference 1

Brother Packer's talk about everyone in the church being the same, and no office being more important than the other was very inspirational to me this conference, along with Thomas S. Monson's talk about Sister Patton and the talk he gave in 1969 concerning her and the death of her son in the Navy. I feel inspired as I sit here listening to the l...

Okay... I just got back from an absolutely wonderful place.  This place is called: Jump On It and it's seriously a wonderful place. My wife is addicted to this game called "Bunko" which she plays once a month with about 12 other women, so I get to play "Let's Go Babysit!" for 2-3 hours while she plays Bunko. Any...

Sony's Digital Rights?
PoeticIntensity
1 comment
I think I'm beginning to understand why I hate Sony so bad.  Their stance on digital rights' management is absolutely astounding. According to this article, Sony's cheif anti-piracy lawyer stated that "...making a copy of a purchased song is just a nice way of saying 'steals just one copy'" So, in a nutshell, Jennifer Pariser i...

MythTV Basement Home Theater
PoeticIntensity
2 comments
About 2 years ago I got this hairbrained idea to use mythtv to create a computer-based full-media center for my basement home theater.  At the time, I had a sweet side-job which was paying me nicely, so I had the means to do pretty much exactly what I wanted. I had a couple of things for which I wanted to use the basement, namely 1. My Home...

Hehe....  I love it when I learn new stuff about Springville.

Anyway... My co-worker, Steve comes into my office (or rather, the...

Okay...  As most of you know, I use Linux for pretty much everything I do which requires a computer.  When I started using Linux, I waffled between KDE and Gnome for probably 6-10 months when I finally settled on Gnome.  I haven't looked back since.... almost. About 6 months ago, Gnome came out with a release which implemented the...

Once, after inquiring the reasons why he believed Mormonism was wrong, a good Baptist friend of mine began telling me about Satan and his desire to take the throne of God before the world was. Everything he told me was true and accurate, as far as my knowledge goes.  Satan did try to take the throne of God and was thusly cast out of heaven ...

A little less than a month ago, my best friend's wife called me and told me she was planning a birthday party for her hubby.  Well, Scott being my best friend and all, I thought this was a fantastic idea!  After that, I didn't think too terribly much about it. A couple of days after that, I remember Scott telling me that he really want...

Well.... Not much to write, other than this week's goal wasn't forgotten. :) I'd say that 5 out of the 7 days I had were a success of making at least 90% of the decisions during the day based on strengthening the family. My job is going well, although it's kind of scary because I'm the sole Linux guru of the company. They're putting a lot of fa...

Man.... I'm tired, but I felt I had to read and write about a scripture today.

Another great chapter on the justice and mercy of God is found in Alma 34. That's about it for...

I enjoyed this talk, but to tell you the truth, I have no idea what to write about it.  I think it has to do more with my current mood than anything else. The talk made a great point that we need to live in the now.  We need to utilize the atonement of Christ in order to secure a great tomorrow. And as far as yesterday goes, I believe...

I've been using Linux now for long enough to have heard just about all the facts, opinions, babblings, and flame-wars about Linux security vs. Microsoft security. *sigh* It seems that every time I try to explain to people the added security inherent to Linux, they have all sorts of explanations why my explanations are bogus.  Some of my ...
