21st Century Life Companion

Nov
28

I broke a vow today. I tried - hard. I really, truly did. I tried to avoid the consumerism and consumtion that comes with "Black Friday". I promised myself I would stay home until it was time to go to work, and not spend a dime.

Then I found out that Best Buy, one of my _least_ favorite places in the world to shop, was giving away Samsung Galaxy S4 4G-LTE phones free with two year activation. So I decided I would make plans to head over early Friday morning and wade into the fray. Fortunately for me, I had the sense to look at their website early this morning and pre-order my unit for in store pickup. Added bonus: I don't have to wade into the store on Black Friday, have until December 5th to pick it up. Just moments ago, I visited their website - and they're completely sold out.

I'm SUPER excited about this new phone. It's been a very long time since I've had modern technology in my hands, and nearly as long since I last spent any money on something I _want_ for myself. Truth is, if it weren't for the Black Friday special, I'd have to fork out $300 for this phone, so I can let myself of the hook just a little bit.

Bonus: Mine comes in a pseudo-rare Blue Arctic finish.

Minor Annoyances...

Oct
25

I've got at least nine libraries to choose from when working with my preferred wysiwyg editor in drupal...

How many actually worked?  One.  Exactly one.  That's cool... but I burned three hours on it.  :-P

Blarf

Oct
23

It's a Wednesday, the 23rd of October, 2013... This is my first official "blarf", or "blog", with the new website.

BLARF.mp3 is the soundtrack to this event.

It's not that I'm not excited - I am. I'm just a bit squeamish about going all Sis Boom Bah on the toot my own horn bit, at least not right now. My thoughts don't come out polished so it's going to take me a bit to get comfortable with this.
