Here we go -a-changin'-jobs again...
I've been strugging on how to blog about what's been going on, and I'm sick of thinking about it, so here I go.
About a month ago, I was sitting at my happy job, getting paid pretty well, liking very much, for the most part, the environment which I had been blessed to work in for the past 1 1/2 years, when an email came to my inbox from the UPHPU...

Is this move right?
Okay, people.... I'm here at Truenorth Academy and I just can't shake the feeling of anxiety I have of leaving this place. I'm gonna start my new job at Nature's Way, which by all intents and purposes, should be the job I have for the rest of my life. It pays fantastic, the people seem wonderful.... It's just that the people here at Truenorth ar...

Holy moly. I'm not sure I can type everything I need to, but I'm gonna try.
I gave my two-weeks today at Truenorth Academy after talking with two people at Nature's Way to make certain the offer they are making me. I'm not exactly sure where this decision will lead me, but after praying and doing some analysis of our own, Sarah and I believe t...

Alright... This is insane.
On Friday (2 days ago), we were here in California, and my cell phone was in the van. Unbeknownst to me, Andrea Clifford from Natures Way called around 11:00am, telling me that they were done with the 2nd-round interviews and wanted to talk to me concerning the web developer position. I got that message around 4:20....

What does "rich" really mean?
I've been reading the scriptures a bit lately, and I came upon a verse which intrigued me. That verse quickly made me think of this one, and this one. Let's not forget this one - that's a good one, too - verse 33 being the focus.
Here's another really good one warning of the dangers of the previous entries, and further proving the point that at l...

What is going on?
Wow... About a week ago I got an email about a job offer here in Springville. The offer itself did not really have anything to do with any of the current skills I have. However, moments away from just discarding it, I decided to take the plunge and I sent an email in response. Here's the email:
To whom this may concern:
My name is Jason J...

Is "Love" really all we need?
The answer to that question in today's world is "Not on your life." However, in a perfect utopia, the answer would definitely be, to a degree, "yes".
A couple of days ago, I was really gettin' down into myself and thinking about things, when I started thinking about the state of the world. Holy cow, that could open, not only a can of worms, but ...

RPM Insanity - Postfix + Courier + MySQL
Okay... I don't have a lot of time to write, but for goodness sake, if I didn't - I'd be doing myself a great dis-service.
I just spent the past 6 hours trying to follow a simple tutorial to get MySQL authentication against Postfix + Courier so I could setup an emergency email server our company desperately needed since Friday.
I woke up this mor...

2-month SSH battle -- finally won.
Okay. I've gotta write this down for two reasons:
So I don't forget what I just figured out.
I hope to high heaven someone doesn't have to go through what I just did to figure something THIS SIMPLE.
On with the story.
Well, about 2 months ago my server started acting strangely. The most notable symptom of this strangeness was manifested by a...

Fun Updating With Gentoo
I just thought I'd jot down an experience which may be of some benefit to others, even if only to provide a few laughs.
About 3 years ago, I built my brother a computer and he was just as sick of Microsoft as I was, so I told him about Linux. He wanted it, so I installed gentoo on his box for him. I updated it probably 2 or 3 ti...

2nd Nephi : 8
As I read this chapter, I found the question in my head, "why was Nephi prompted to put Isaiah in here?"
One thing I'm noticing in this chapter and the last, is the writing style of Isaiah is quite starkly contrasted against the writing of Nephi. It's wildly poetic.
I enjoyed this chapter as much as I did the last. I didn'...

Tiny Boats / Bret Slack
Just in case you haven't heard the latest about Tiny Boats' debut album release, a good friend of the studio, Matt Mylroie, a music producer in Florida, had these good words to say about The Broken Vessels.
A portion is quoted below, where the full review can be found here.
"This album is hard to describe, but it is a fantastic blend of ...

ILMJ Photo System?
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.
That thought consisted of me wanting a definitive answer to my almost 10,000-photo collection of digital images which seems to keep growing, and staying totally unorganized.
So, two day...

Alma : 17
The beginning of this chapter is one of my favorites. I love verse 2 and 3.
True friendship, at least in my case, is always born of spiritual origin. The friends I've had that have lasted have always had a solid spiritual foundation. And yes... Finding that old friends have kept the faith and increased in the knowledge of the Lo...

2nd Nephi : 16 & 17
Reading these two chapters didn't leave me with much spiritual insight, as I didn't understand much of it.
That said, I did, however, really feel the Spirit while reading them. I yearned to know what the words meant. I wanted to study them more.... Oddly enough, I find myself wanting to study them more, yet kind of scared ...

Gotta Start Another Project....
I'm going crazy in my life again. I'm kinda weird that way.
Things are going well and then I finish a project, or get sick of it, or something else. Heck, the whole "project" mentality I have is what started this whole "ilovemyjournal" thing (as well as ldscompanion.org). I also wrote and produced 17 very ama...

Hmm.... I'm kind of tired right now, but I figured I needed to read some scriptures...
This time around, I realize how being under the rule of a tyrant would be absolutely horrible. In this case, Alma was under the rule of one (or more) of the Amulonites - which were his wicked peers when they were the king's priests. Talk about...

Starting my journal
Well, I started this website! I didn't know how it was going to work out, but it seems pretty cool.
I'd like to write in it everyday, but I might slack off. This will be a cool way to keep track of things.
Already, I have a whole 12 years to tell, so let's get started!...
