probably a shorter post.

Looking for an Xbox or something else to repair, and when I do get one I will be documenting it with pictures, instructions, and maybe Video. I may or may not post those in this blog though I am thinking of starting a separate blog for that sort of thing, and perhaps specialize a few things. Well, I'm out tired and about to got lay down with my girl.

I am having an out of money experience

I have a shirt that says just that, and it is more true now than ever, of course if I could take back the 10-15 dollars that shirt cost right now I think I would do it. I'll post a pic of me in that shirt on picasa probably soon. Today I go to work do pretty simple tasks have chit chat with the customers clean the store make it look pretty, and that's about it except when no one was in the store I made sure to turn on my Zune and listen to some TWIT podcast, great show if you never listen to it one of Leo Laporte's better podcasts. He sits around with generally eduacated guests who know what they are talking about, with recent tech news, I'm a geek so I find it facinating. Doing that today, made the day go by so much faster, in fact I would say I had a good day at work, also thanks to no grumpy customers. I leave work today to see my wonderful gas tank pointing at the letter 'E' so I decide to pull into the gas station, but before I start pumping I pull out my G1 (kinda bragging) and check out my bank account (no longer bragging) I've got about 24 bucks in there OUCH! now I did return something I bought off of Newegg so I am waiting for an RMA to go through so that should help a little. That was an impulse thing I wanted for my phone, which I will get later, but right now cash is more important. I put 20 dollars in so basically I've got 4 bucks till Friday... oh yea rent is due Saturday guess what there goes my paycheck. I might have a little change, but I gotta save that for other bill throughout the month so basically my entertainment is going to be my new phone and the Internet... I think I can handle, but I think I should stop reading tech and gadget news otherwise my want mode will kick in. If you know any quick way to make some money, or provide me with business to repair/mod PCs/Consoles $50 labor generally which is negotiable based on what exactly the problems are, so basically could be more or less, because of parts etc. details can be provided. Don't have a cool closing statement yet, but I'll work on it.

First Blogger post, not my first blog.

Well I am no stranger to the Internet or Internet memes, fads, and traditions. Social media has been around for years, but has had recent explosion thanks to myspace, facebook, twitter, and YouTube. However, we cannot forget BBS's and IRC. I've been blogging since before blog was a word, now I didn't realise this until later in life, but when I was younger I would run websites just for the fun of it and one of them I believe is still running that was pretty much my last one that is still up either way. I have ran a few websites directly from my computer using IIS, but most of those don't last very long and I just don't have the time sometimes. Back to blogging my news section on my angelfire site is truthfully a blog. xanga, friendster, livejournal, okay there are way too many ways to blog and be apart of a community, but there is a good chance I've done maybe 25% of them I've got over 20 email accounts (finally settling on Gmail because well Google is awesome). I have gotten a nice little introduction into this blog, basically I have decided to be an entrepreneur and perhaps get my little piece of the Internet and make a profit, while doing things I am passionate about or talk about things I'm passionate about. What you will see from this blog is probably me talking about the good old days of the Internet such as and also looking foward to great prospects like ustream and qik, and of course links to videos and perhaps even diary-esc entries after all this is my personal blog. I also plan to start other more specific blogs perhaps ones focusing console repair, PC help & repair, music, movies, games, and who knows what else. I'm broke working at Blockbuster video looking for a second job or a good full time replacement, this is all done in my spare time and at the moment there is absolutely no money in it for me, but there shouldn't be for personal blogs anyways. hope you enjoyed this . . . below is a look into some of my spare time at the moment.

Listening to: Tool Discography (I'm not the biggest fan, but told I have to experience them before I offer my opinion... fair enough)

Gaming: Fight Night Round 4 (Xbox360)

Watching: Revision3

Tinkering: My G1

Just got a new phone last week the G1 from T-Mobile and powered by android... one of the best investments in a long time, I'll elaborate later
