What is Fasting ... Really...
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Ya know...  I didn't quite know what to write about today, but I knew I had to write about something.  Some days, I've just got to write. Fasting.  Fasting, to me, is simply going without food or water for a duration of time with the purpose of showing God I am willing to sacrifice something which is very important to me, having h...

Thoughts on the RIAA
PoeticIntensity
2 comments
Those who know me will find this post a bit ... unlike my typical post. This is mainly because I have a pretty passionate stance on DRM, OSS, Microsoft, Linux, and religion.  (I hate DRM, love OSS, hate Microsoft, love Linux, and I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) Anyway...  I have a few words to say ab...

Microsoft Vista Insanity
PoeticIntensity
1 comment
Heh... I remember a couple of months back (or has it been a year now?) when Microsoft announced to the world that the years of delay were now over, as they were finally releasing the famed Microsoft Vista Operating System!!!!!! The world (and peasants) rejoiced. About a week after that, my father called me up and told me he was considering th...

Literal Scriptures?

1 comment
My wife and I got into a discussion a couple of nights ago which has stayed with me enough for me to mull over the questions at least a couple of times.  I'm not 100% sure of the correct answer yet, so I thought I'd blog about it. The topic at hand is a quite sacred one, so I'll treat it with as much respect as is possible. The discussio...

Gentoo udev NIC Bug
PoeticIntensity
3 comments
Something I thought I'd write down, because it took me forever to figure out, has been a bug for at least a year, and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. The bug is quite simple really, and once you know where to look for it, it pretty much stops being a bug due to an extremely easy work-around. The bug is concerning network cards plugg...

How Much Is Required?

Man, something must be up with the ward I attend, because even though I've been going to the same ward for the last 3 years, the past 6 weeks have been..... very spiritually nourishing. I'm not saying that until then, it wasn't wonderful, but I've never loved going to church as much as I have during the past 6 weeks.  It's weird.  I'm ...

Ya know...  One thing which really irks me is when someone tells me "I can't", for whatever reason. I'm not exactly sure, either, since there really are things which we cannot do, such as transmutate ourselves to become vultures.  I don't believe I've ever met a person who has become a vulture, although, that would mean that he...

I was recently reading this article about yet another virus which affects Microsoft.  In reading it, some of the comments below stated such things like, "The patch was already released, so just run your auto-updater and be done with it!".  Seems logical, right? Yeah... Actually, it does.  The exact same mechanism exists ...

Two Delta 1010 Config

Okay...  So I own and operate a recording studio, and I've been using an M-Audio delta 1010 as my primary audio interface.  This provides me 8 channels of simultaneous audio streams coming into my workstation.  Up until about a month ago, this has been very sufficient. About a month ago, I ordered another Delta 1010, and planned o...

 So, I just had a great day here in the basement where I live, while me and my family are waiting for our new home (and studio) to be built, and I found myself sort of pensive, so I thought I'd come down and write a few words, and see what comes out. Advanced Budget Studios began taking clients in August of 2009, using a single AT 3525 conde...

About 6 months ago, Gnome came out with a release which implemented the...

His name is Daniel Robbins (drobbins). Daniel Robbins created gentoo ...

I find it so interesting that Nephi, in all cases I can think of, when stating how hard things can get, always follows it up with how blessed they are.  I believe Nephi was how I would like to, and am trying to be like.  He recognizes things are bad, yet always finishes on an optimistic note.  Personally, I beleve grounded optimism c...

It's not too often you read stories about a business who knowingly chooses gentoo as their Linux distribution of choice;  this is why I liked this story so much. Everything they say about gentoo (both good and bad) I believe is right on the money. This company chose gentoo to run their main servers for an email marketing company, and haven...

I was just up holding you, Collin.  You awoke for some reason after we put you to bed, and I decided to be the one to go see what was the matter.

You put your little head on my shoulder and continued to rid...
