New Haircut
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
I just thought I'd let ya'll know that I got a new haircut a couple of days ago.  I think its swell. I guess this just goes to show that I'm not entirely sane... pretty much... ever. The mohawk has quite a story which I might as well divulge right about now. It all happened about 7 years ago, when my brothers all got together for some event...

Today was a good day.  I didn't get enough sleep, so after our work lunch party, which enabled us to eat large amounts of Korean food (seasoned beef 'n' stuff wrapped in lettuce was good, but I didn't like the "kimchi" which was nothing more than hot and spicy rotten cabbage), I felt a bit tired...  Too tired to work. So, I wen...

Man... At work, I've got .... well.. I was gonna say dilemma, but... it's not a dilemma because I know of a way out. My dilemma is, I've gotta have a website functional by Friday, which means I've got two days to get it to work. The database we're connecting to (postgres on gentoo, thank heavens) has a table with more than 12 million rows in it....

Staying True to Yourself
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
One other thing I've been thinking about lately is a lesson I learned a long time ago.  This lesson is summarized into one sentence: Being true to God in no way diminishes your being true to yourself, simply because God knows how the *best* "you" is. I was talking with one of my brothers when he said "But if I become 'churchy'...

Forgiveness

At church this Sunday, we talked about the topic of "forgiveness" in priesthood class and I've gotta say, holy cow - I love that class. Ya know...  I often wonder what makes a good class, and what makes a "not-so-great" class as far as gospel doctrine or priesthood or relief society goes.  Learning about religion can ...

I upgraded all of my boxen yesterday, including my main server (which now has successfully become my slowest machine).  As you probably know, I run gentoo on everything.

I've been pondering on how I am to write about this without seeming haughty or prideful, because quite honestly, I feel nothing more than blessed beyond words. When I was offered this job, it just felt right.  Six months previous to my being offered this job, I was offered another job in SLC which seemed right in every aspect but the fact th...

Car Mods and Emissions
PoeticIntensity

Last spring, I modified my car - and then modified it again. The 2nd modifications entailed me re-programming (or flashing, or tuning) my car's computer.  One thing I didn't realize at the time was that evidently, a standard protocol for most tuners out there is to turn off the O2 sensors which monitor emissions after the catalytic converter...

So, this last week was booked solid - again.  We saw a few regulars come in and a few new on...

I just got done making the video for this entry, so take a look if you've got a high speed Internet connection. Today was the 2nd day of the Ed Roth Memorial Reunion held in Manti, UT. There were finksters-a-plenty there on Friday, but even more on Saturday.  I lost count of how many Rat Finks I saw. So, because the days were packed, ...

So lately I haven't had any major projects going on involving programming, and I started to miss it, so I decided to act upon a thought I had about a month ago.

Ya know, sometimes in this business, you've gotta use ingenuity.  And then there are other times you've just got to call it quits.  I'm really glad we didn't choose that option for last night's session, because it turned out just fine...

All I gotta say is, I'm glad I had a lot of clothes on this morning. Yes, it was friggin' cold outside, but that was only a small nuisance. The real reason I'm glad I had many layers on was due to the large amount of crap I shot in my drawers when I checked the main server log files this morning. Around 9:30, the floor admin came to me saying he...
