Slice Of Life

Slice Of Life, is a Weblog (BLOG) that I write, in which I try to tell some sort of story about something, or someone in my life. Sometimes it's happy, sometimes not, sometimes informative, sometimes...... HA, gotcha, did ya think that I was going to say not? Don't know me very well, do ya? :=) I will try to update the BLOG from time to time, whenever I can.

My personality is outgoing, I use to be a wallflower, until I realized that it was all the outgoing people that were having the most fun. It was a tough conversion, but nobody I know today would even remotely consider me to be a wallflower. Basically, when I was young, my parents taught me that if you work hard, you can accomplish anything. I haven't quite found the "anything" part to be always true, but it has inspired me to always try to do, and be, my best.

My Laptop Has A Nervous Breakdown

So, maybe you heard already, maybe not, but my laptop had a nervous breakdown this week. I powered it up, and it made a funny noise, like when you hit the wrong key, then it went nuts. The noise went "Bonk…. Bonk….bonkbonkbonkbonkbonkbonkbonk". When I took it to the PC repair place, all 3 techs got up to gather round to see the "Thing that they've never seen before"…… NOT a Good Sign. 2 days later, they leave me a message…. "Can you call me please"?, Not….. "Come and get it, it's fixed"….. This is also not a good sign. When I went over there, they said "Complete Registry corruption, we're not supporting that model for the company anymore, so….. We'll have to give you this upgraded, top of the line Centrino, is that O.K."? Ummmm Gee……. I guess I'll just HAVE to suffer through it. And they saved all my Microsoft Office files too! (Whew). Also, they loaded the software to allow me to link my laptop through my Home Cable Modem ISP (With an additional Billion Firewalls added), so now my home setup is a 2.8GHz P4HT, with 1 gig RAM, Radeon Graphics Card, Motorola Surfboard Modem, linked through a 5Gbyte router, hooked through High Speed Cable Internet Modem with wireless connectivity ARRR ARRR ARRR ARRR ARRR ARRR ARRR……….. Whew…… Sorry, I had a testosterone overdose there, it happens anytime I talk about high tech toys….. Or Power Tools…… or machines of any kind. Remind me to tell the story sometime about when I almost electrocuted myself by taking off the back of the television "To see what was inside". I recall that I was 6yrs old at the time. The more things change, the more they stay the same huh?

btw - I uncovered 2 SOL underground fan clubs last week, and get this, both are "outside intel". Since they only get cut/paste of this section, not anything above, it's okeee dokeee with me. So, allow me to take this opportunity to welcome those fans who work for "The Alphabet TV Network", and also to those fans that work for "The only Mouse on Earth that operates a "People Trap". Think about it :-)
