So, I haven't been one to get on the 31 days of Thanks in November, just because I generally think it's shallow to do such a thing only in November, as we should be doing it all year round, but that, in itself, is even more shallow, because I've never ended up actually doing anyhting of the sort, ever. So, this November, in the Spirit o...

I should be way more tired than I am.
I just got done praying, and a day before that I had just got done sinning. You know the kind I'm talking about. It's the kind you really need to rid yourself of. The kind that always keeps creeping around, finding an idle brain-cell to occupy... So, yeah... Hundreds, if n...

I'm not quite sure why I chose the title, "Sunday Miracles", but it seems to suit what happens when one chooses to follow the Spirit. In any capacity.
Nothing too earth-shattering for today, but I felt inspired to come down and write. I personally believe the Holy Ghost is far more active in our lives (even if we choos...

Studio vs Live...?
So, I recently went to a Walk Off The Earth concert, and it was awesome. Their concerts just keep getting better and better. As good as it was, that's not the purpose for this entry. The purpose is a guy named Scott Helman, and a thought he provoked.
Scott Helman performed for 30 minutes before WOTE came on stage. He...

So, I was just in bed just about to fall asleep (like within 1 or 2 minutes of sleeping), and I felt like I needed to come and write in my journal.
My prayers on Sunday evening, I believe it was, felt just like I was communing with the Spirit. Everything spiritual seemed so easily understood and understandable.
Man, I hope this make...

1 Nephi 4
So, I was listening to, and reading, 1st Nephi chapter 4 in the Book of Mormon this morning, when a verse caught my eye, and my mind dwelt on it for a bit. It was verse 6. Verse 6 reads as follows:
"And I was led by the Spirit, not knowing beforehand the things which I should do."
Seems pretty ino...

So, I've been asked about headphones recently by a lot of friends. So much so, that I thought I'd write down a few words, more regarding what you should not buy, rather than what you should. This is simply due to the enormous amount of generally good, and wildly varying headphones out there.
As most of you know, I'm an audio eng...

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...

So, today I released what has proved to be the best recording of any choir I've ever produced. It was the UVU Institute's Latter-day Celebration Choir. The song is "Baby Boy", one I've never heard before.
It can be heard by clicking here. (feel free to download, listen, and share as much as you like)
This was my fora...

Seek God Sooner
So, I thought I'd write something down that happened today.
For those of you who know me, I'm a pretty laid-back, easy-going type of guy.
My wife and I went to sleep quite late, mostly because we couldn't stop talking and laughing with one another (not an uncommon occurrence, unfortunately), and also unfortunately, we were woken up early ...

Ballmer at it again...
I just got done reading about and listening to a wonderful audio-bite from good ol' Steve Ballmer. Honestly, I don't understand why Microsoft keeps him employed.
Anyway... According to Mr. Ballmer, Linux is no longer free. So, with that in mind, please do not try to download Linux from here, or here, or here, or here, or here, o...

3 Nephi : 13
The first six verses of this chapter talk about performing your "alms" without fanfare. I'm caught wondering why this is important. What's the concept behind the action?
Well, I think that's the very essense of it. - "Why are you giving?" "Why are you charitable?" Is it so you can appear to be...

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 ...

I Wish I Had a Camera
Last night, the temperature dropped down to right around 0 degrees fahrenheit. When I woke up and was almost to work, I almost hit the car in front of me. No, I'm not a poor driver...
It's just that with it being so cold, there was literally about a half an inch of frost which had gathered on.... pretty much anything left outside.

Right now, I just wanted to write down some thoughts and feelings to see how they would contrast against what I think after-the-fact.
Right now, quite honestly, I d...

Great start to 2011!
So, Advanced Budget Studios took a bit of a break during the holidays, and with that came the usual curiosity as to how the new year would be.
Well, I'd have to say that 2011 is looking great. We started off the year recording a wonderful new artist named Taylor Miller. He'll have a website up soon, and his music sounds fabulous! ...

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...

Comcast Bit Torrent Filtering
I've been using Comcast for my personal Internet connection now for about 5 years. Personally, I think they do a great job. My connection goes down on average about once per year, and it just works really well with my lifestyle. I think the price is a bit much, but having a steady Internet connection means a lot to me, so I keep i...

You see, I'm one of the good guys. I don't condone pirating stuff, and rarely pirate anything myself. The collection of the 5500 songs I own, are 99% mine (I'm not perfect), as well as my hundre...

Awhile back, almost every gentoo / gnome computer I built would do this wonderful thing called "auto-mounting" all devices plugged in via USB.
Well, I really didn't know what or how this was done until it started not doing it any more.
So, I went over to my brother's house armed with a determination to figure this stuff out, and I'll ...

About a month ago, I ordered another Delta 1010, and planned o...

Who Uses Linux?
I was reading this article a few minutes ago, and a conversation I had with a potential employer popped into my head.
It was an interview for a Microsoft ASP programmer I responded to about 3 years ago. They wanted a senior web engineer, and I responded with my PHP credentials, and for some reason, that led to an interview.

So, today, I went and investigated a bit of whether I could get the proper tool...

Logitech Orbit AF and Gentoo
This morning, I ended up with a new toy in my hands and as luck would have it, I also had a couple of hours to mess with it.
The device is a Logitech QuickCam Orbit AF webcam.
I've always had a little interest in videography (nothing compared to my interest in audio, however), and from time-to-time I've tried to get various webcams to work in L...
