"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!

With two children, it's hard, but not impossible, to really concentrate on what is going on with conference.  There ar...

Conference 1

0 comments
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.

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...

Well... I finally did it.  I've been kind of anxious about the whole "modifying my car" because I've never done it before, and my car is still under warranty.  I have no idea what this might mean for the warranty, but after hearing / feeling the difference, I don't regret it one bit.  I love it! Just two modifications fo...

One thing I noticed while reading verses 7 through 11, apart from the torn emotions of all the people, was what caused their emotion.

 I apologize for the complete lack of posts in March.  I've been having so much fun recording, I forget to write about it. If you'd like to stay more up-to-date with the studio happenings, I tend to post much more information on Advanced Budget Studio's Facebook page than on the blog.  It's just easier. So, head on over to Facebo...

We totally re-invented the introduction to Desperate Husband's Chorus, which now is sure to give a healthy round of grins to all that hear it.  We also put a pretty ...

When I'm not listening to music, I love listening to a few AM talk radio programs.  Well, about six months ago, one of my favorite radio stations, KNRS 570 AM radio, changed their streaming program that let people use the Internet to hear their content. This change effectively shut-out all Linux users.  I chatted with 4 other Linux use...

Luci Singing Frog Song

Sunday morning, Luci came into our room, climbed up in our bed (Sarah and I were still half asleep in bed, as groggy as ever), and she started bouncing up and down while singing the "Green Speckled Frog" song. Although I was still not aware of most the world around me, I thought her singing was quite cute.  So about an hour later,...

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...
