My testimony (Godhead)
"How have you been changed by knowing the Godhead?"
To be honest, I don't think I would recognize myself without the relationship I have with God, through prayer, with Christ through his atonement, and with the Holy Ghost's comfort and guidance.
Knowing the Godhead,to me, means that I have an incredible force behind my righteous choic...

G+ Public Hangouts
So, with the new G+ hangout update, all of my Chrome extensions quit working ("My Hangouts", "Hangout Canopy", etc...), and I was wondering how in the heck to find hangouts to meet new people...
Well, it's actually very easy.
Within G+, search for #hangoutpost
Then, in the drop-down right-side of the submenu, click &...

So, I just got off the phone with my wife, and she was at our new home-to-be this evening, and apparently, almost everything is done. The carpet isn't in, nor are the toilets, nor are the cement stairs leading down to the basement, but everything else - yeah - it's done. I'm just beside myself. We could be moving in as early as la...

So... I don't even know where to begin. Honestly, my life is so full right now, I feel as though I might decide to curl up into a remote corner of the world somewhere and hide for a few months. That said, each day I seem to manage to get up with a renewed strength to attack the day's duties with a renewed vigor.
Even though it's cl...

Today was spent with my good friend, and brother, Ryan (and his family, who happens to love my family!)
We spent the day moving all sorts of large items from our home into the storage space we're renting. From the kitchen table and chairs, to the couch downstairs, to the hutches - we made two trips full of items, with our mini-van and Dad'...

Okay, so I recently watched a documentary on the Foo Fighters called "Back and Forth", and I thought it was really well made - okay, I thought it was awesome. The funny thing is - I don't own a single Foo Fighters album, and am really not familiar with them as a band, even though I generally like the "rock" genre they asso...

Google Hangout Linux Fix
So, I just got a new Logitech C910 web cam, and when trying to join or create google hangouts, I couldn't see myself in the stream at all, nor anyone else's. I can hear everyone, and everyone can see me, but I can see nobody, nor myself. I found this gem of a site with a very easy solution.
I'm using gentoo Linux, and this simple tric...

Moroni : 10
...and so we've come to the last chapter, and the closing of the book I opened almost 4 years ago. The goal was to read and write about each and every chapter in the Book of Mormon, no matter how long it took me. Tonight, I'm gonna complete that goal. Wow. That just feels good.
Let's charge on to Moroni 10, shall w...

Moroni : 9
What a horrible, yet extremely personal and hopeful chapter. The nature of it reminds me of the psalm of Nephi (2 nephi 4:15-end). What horrible, horrible things were going on at the end, but it just amazes me, the strength of Mormon, and his constant prayers for Moroni - and his pleading to God for his soul to be brought b...

New Years' (almost)
Approximately 4 years ago, sometime during the summer, from time to time I would go outside our back door and lay out on the concrete slab and look up at the stars. We had been in our home about 7 years and had no intention of moving, or changing, or doing anything but doing what we were doing. I was in love with my wife, trying my best...

Well.. I got to verse 3, when a concept which, for some reason, has been pounded into my spirit throughout pretty much my whole life, came ringing true and clear. What is that concept, you ask? Don't assume to know anything about the effect you may have on others. Sometimes you can tell, but sometimes you can't.
Because of the honesty...

Hi there! I'm PoeticIntensity
I guess this is my journal... still.
I started journaling when I was 14, in 1990, as a new years resolution. I had no idea then just how much I would get into journaling.
It took me 12 years, off and on, to transcode all of my 3000+ journal entries, and then put them into a database. I ...

Jason Mraz Concert in Vegas!
So, first, I've gotta give a HUGE THANK YOU to my mother-in-law and father-in-law, because it was they who bought me the tickets for my birthday last month, in the first place. I would have never bought the tickets for myself, so wthout them, I literally would have never seen such a concert.
So, THANK YOU, KIM AND HENRY!!!! T...

Sleep, Cats, and Christmas Trees
Ya know... I thought that with 4.5 hours of sleep last night, I'd feel a heckuva lot sleepier than I do. I guess miracles do happen.
Since our wonderful Samuel was born, my wife and I have been getting considerably less sleep than we otherwise would. This is to be expected; it comes with the whole package of parenthood.

"What is a motorcycle doing in *this*?", I thought as I continued upward through the winding Spanish Fork canyon. It wasn't so much that a motorcycle was in this particular canyon, but rather in the canyon during one of the 3 most torrential downpours I've seen during my lifetime.
I was coming home from work today when about ...

My Kindness (musical number)
So... Today was... beyond words, really.
It was a day that just brimmed with spiritual opulence. I woke up at 7:00, to warm up my voice (after having a pretty intense drumming session which lasted until midnight yesterday), and then went to practice the musical number at 8:00am, to sing it for the congregation at around 9:45.

Video Editing With Kdenlive
I've recently become interested in integrating video into my journal and blog. As such, I realized that my 4-year old digial camera just wasn't gonna cut it anymore, so I went out and bought the cheapest camera I could find that would shoot 30 frames per second which happened to be the Nikon S210 digital camera. It takes pretty good vid...

I've gotta say though, Ryan Phillips, the guy on the guitar is awesome. I love working with him, an...

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.

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...

Two weeks later, I add some vocals and effects, and this is what you've got.
I hope you like it. (press the ...

m4a audio conversion in Linux
Today, an audio file was sent to me in an email. This audio was compressed and encoded using the aac codec for compression and wrapped in m4a. In order to use it, I had to convert this file to a wav format. Usually, I receive files in mp3, ogg, or flac file types, and use lame, oggdec, or flac to decode them back to wav. Wit...
