"I Can't" ... Bah!
PoeticIntensity
3 comments
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...

Elder Holland's Talk
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
This morning I came to work rather ponderous, but not pondering anything in particular.  I so enjoyed Elder Holland's talk this last Sunday that I went and downloaded it, watched it, and did about 4 hours of research into the Nicene Creed, which Elder Holland mentioned. First, I must say, hearing Elder Holland's talk was... uhhh....  a...

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. I had no idea that there existed a place in Springville that was absolutely perfect for racing.  Now we're talking 0-80 MPH racing in a straight line.  Nothing curvy or anything like that.  So... Anyway... My co-worker, Steve comes into my office (or rather, the...

Jacob 3
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
I've often wondered why this chapter isn't included in chapter 2.  They both seem to go on about the evils of Jacob's audience.  This chapter even goes further to say that the Lamanites at this time were more righteous than the Nephites because they have only one wife, and the husbands love their wives and children.  They also are wi...

Jacob : 7 - Sherem
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
I believe that Sherem is the first "villain" of the Book of Mormon after Laman and Lemuel, who could be considered an "anti-christ".  Not 100% sure, but I don't remember anything standing out in 1st or 2nd Nephi.  This guy reminds me of Nehor, Korihor, and Amalickiah. Some points of interest this time around are: ...

Mosiah : 27
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Reading the beginning of this chapter, it's interesting that Mosiah put laws into place which made voicing anything which could be interpreted as "persecutions" against the church, illegal - and it seemed to work.  There was "peace" for a number of years due to that law.  The church even began to grow and prosper more ...

Mosiah : 10
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
The first thing I noticed this time reading this was that even though the Nephites under Zeniff were at a time of peace, after the war, Zeniff was diligent in continuing his building of weaponry.  Not sure why that struck me this time, but the very first verse jumped out. Maybe it's because they didn't make any assumptions about their enemy....

Since I began using Ardour to record music, (and more music), I've always managed to have the same problem crop up, year after year.  The symptoms of this problem are annoying to say the least. I'm running all my audio through an M-Audio 1010 digital interface and I use envy24control to monitor and adjust the channels via. software.  I ...

Alma : 50 - Happiness
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
 If the fortifications that Moroni built in the beginning were enough to astonish the Lamanites to the point that they were afraid to fight, and then failed to kill even one Nephite, while they themselves were slain to the tune of over 1,000 - I can only imagine what the additional fortifications did...  Goes to show that a good Christian...

The microphone is precisely what we needed. Afte...

So a little more than a year ago, I took my mustang out for the first time on the Salt Flats.  I had a blast out there with my good friend Steve. On the way home, Steve had some problems with salt lining his rims, causing some tire imbalance, so we  got off the freeway, I showed him what the problem was, and as I was getting back on th...

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...
