I am a geek. A Windows geek to be exact. I do all things computer. I do like outdoor activities; camping, fishing, riding my hawg, etc. but I always gravitate back to the computer. In fact, between work, the biz and other stuff, if I am not on the 'puter for 14 - 16 hours a day, I feel deprived!

Long winters...

You know, I have always liked having four seasons. I have lived all around the world and the places where I lived that had fewer just seemed to lack something. That being said, there comes a time when enough is enough and it is simply time to move on to the next season. SO, with that...

Australia under water...

Having spent some time in Central Australia, and visiting around the Eastern perimeter, these photo's kind of hit home and made me a bit sad. Have a look.

Some first-hand pics.

Perhaps the most rivetting pic to me is the tug boat going down the main street of the Brisbane Central Buisness District.

It is the third largest city in Ozz, with a population of 3.3 million.

Now the crocs are moving in, the one shown was in the Central Park in Rockhampton City, they are gorging on dogs and carrion.

Now also the bloody snakes are everywhere, washed out of the bush and taken residence in abandoned houses in towns and the cities.

No one knows yet the real cost of all this, but it will be just massive, and it is gonna hurt us.

For the most part, Australia is flat and is just a massive flood plain, and it all runs from north to south.

Something new

I have an idea for a new, probably boring, geek feature for my site. As part of my research for this idea I ran across this Password Tester! Try it out! It is pretty cool! This item is actually on the Computer Tips & Trix menu. There is a link to the original site at the bottom of the page, if you want to get a copy for yourself!

Tuesday, 08 February 2011 12:39

More updates...

As I learn new things, I have made a few adjustments to some of the features on the Humor & Fun menu.

1. The Baby Namers: I have added cookies so it remembers your last name and also remembers the list of names you like for about 30 days after the last addition, or until you clear the list. I also added a little image on the top right that will allow you to switch between the girl namer and boy namer without revisiting the menus.

2. The Name Bander: Like the Baby Namers, it will remember the list of names you like for 30 days after the last addition, or until you clear the list.

3. The Random Nonsense Generator: It will allow you to backup and see the last sentence if you clicked too soon. This is just a toggle. You can go back one and return to the current one. You may also go back one, then just continue on. It also allows you to save a list of the ones you like for 30 days after the last update. I have added quite a mix of stuff to it, some may end up sounding naughty by coincedence and some may be naughty on purpose. Some may be weird and because of the mix, some may simply be nonsensical rubish. Keep clicking and remember you can click on the version line below for details about how much is in the each list.

4. Evil Overlord and Shakespearean Insulter: The only real changes to these is it no longer does a page refresh to get to the new stuff. However, Shakespeare does not talk every time now. Only when you first connect to the page. (Watch the image, he doesn't mean it...).

More to follow! Laughing

We are BACK!

Some of you may have noticed our site was down for nearly 24 hours. We run this site on a server at our house and we have to register with a "Dynamic DNS" service to allow the connection to our server because of how our ISP handles internet access. This is why there is the :4763 after our site name. Anyway, the company we WERE using announced six months or so ago that they would no longer provide this service once our agreement ran out. They are getting out of THIS business, it was not anything we did. We are SO controversial after all... Innocent It was just our time, our agreement expired. It just took some time to get our site name transfered to a now hosting company and get everything reconfigured to point at our server. GOT'ER DUN!

Actually, it might be my imagination but I THINK it the site comes up a little faster now. Maybe that is my imagination and it will change after the shiny new wears off.

Things that make you go, huh? (updated)

I did some work on my Random Nonsense Generator... Check it out! HERE!

If you are interested in details about how the program works, click on the version line in the bottom right corner. It will provide a description along with the number of items in the lists... (it is essentally my counter to let me know how many items I have added)

Actually, I have tweaked and tuned MOST of the things on the Humor & Fun menu above. Check them out too! Smile

Letter from a Dog...

Subject: Dear God: It's me, the Dogdog_Image12
I loved this. It made me laugh out loud.


From: THE DOG

dog_Image2

Dear God: Is it on purpose that our
names are the same, only reversed?

dog_Image3

Dear God: Why do humans smell the flowers,
but seldom, if ever, smell one another?

dog_Image4

Dear God: When we get to Heaven, can we sit
on your couch? Or will it be the same old story?

dog_Image5

Dear God: Why are there cars named after
the jaguar, the cougar, the mustang,
the colt, the stingray, and the rabbit, but not ONE
named for a Dog? How often do you
see a cougar riding around? We love a nice car
ride! Would it be so hard to rename
the 'Chrysler Eagle' the 'Chrysler Beagle'?

dog_Image6

Dear God: If a Dog barks his head off
in the forest and no human hears him,
is he still a bad Dog?

dog_Image7

Dear God: We Dogs can understand human
verbal instructions, hand signals, whistles,
horns, clickers, beepers, scent IDs,
electromagnetic energy fields, and Frisbee
flight paths. What do humans understand?

dog_Image8

Dear God: More meatballs,
less spaghetti, please.

dog_Image9

Dear God: Are there mailmen in Heaven?
If there are, will I have to apologize?

dog_Image10

Dear God: Here is a list of
just some of the things I must remember
to be a good Dog:


1. I will not eat the cat's food before he eats
it or after he throws it up.


2. I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish,
crabs, etc., just because I like the way they smell.


3. The Litter Box is not a cookie jar.


4. The sofa is not a 'face towel'.


5. The garbage collector is not stealing our stuff.


6. I will not play tug-of-war with Dad's
underwear when he's on the toilet.


7. Sticking my nose into someone's
crotch is an unacceptable way of saying 'hello'.


8. I don't need to suddenly stand
straight up when I'm under the coffee table.


9. I must shake the rainwater out of my fur before
entering the house - not after.


10. I will not come in from outside,
and immediately drag my butt across the carpet.


11. I will not sit in the middle of the living
room, and lick my crotch.


12. The cat is not a 'squeaky toy',
so when I play with him and he makes that noise,
it's usually not a good thing.

dog_Image11

P.S. Dear God: When I get to Heaven,
may I have my testicles back?
