Lottsa stuff hapnin’

Posted by delta on 16th April 2007

My Mac is in the shop right now – this will be my second logic board in so many months. I keep telling them that it’s my Mother Board or RAM (total heat issue), but they simply won’t listen to me. As a guy who fixes computers, it’s frustrating. But if I try to do it myself I’ll lose my warranty…

Maybe they’ll finally listen to me the next time it happens. I’m just hoping that it happens before my warranty runs out – maybe that’s why their putting it off, I don’t know…

Got a full on Weight Gym in my Workout Room now. Very stoked to be lifting again, maybe I can get back into rugby shape. Actually I will, but I don’t think anyone will let me play (had an issue a few years back that may prevent an “ok” from a doctor). Besides, I just hit 38 – I’d be at least 10 years older than the second oldest guy out there…

Got a lot of shows coming up in the next few weeks, and a lot of news stories to put up – so the next few weeks there will be plenty to read here boys and girls…

I just had an interesting show the other day, but I’m not gonna write anything about it till I get permission…

Man, it really sucks being without my main computer! The two things that are killing me (I can live without the rest if I have to) is that I can’t update my online calendar, and I have to check all my email addresses seperately (one at a time) online. It really sucks! Very time consuming…

Oh, and once I get my Mac back, I’m gonna try a different kinda thing here with the “News” section.  I’m gonna do a short video synopsis of the stories and then provide the stories directly below the video.  We’ll see if you guys like that format…
