It's been a while since I've posted anything so I'll start with whats been exiting me the most in my world. That would be Turntable.fm. Long ago are the days of using Pandora, Spotify, Google Music, or any other cloud based music service. For me, it's Turntable all day every day.
Well, had quite an interesting time getting my Android device (Razr on 2.3.5) working with new Office 365 email conversion. You can see my post on the Microsoft forums regarding my original problem and solution. I wanted to post it here though in case anyone had any questions.
Long story short. I had deleted my old profile on my phone because I thought it would be easier and quicker to have it auto-lookup server settings by using the domain information. The problem is, my version of Android does not give a manual setup option for "Corporate Sync" accounts like other flavors of Android. The reason I needed to do manual was because it was not going to the correct new Office 365 server (I think) to get the server settings. As a work-around, I put in a dummy email address and it sent me to another page to manually enter the settings.
I've been toying with the idea of heading back to school every now and then to get my Bachelor's Degree in computer science. It wasn't too long ago that I finished up my Associates Degree and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. But I have to ask, is it worth it today? Does it hold the same worth as it did 10 years ago? I don't believe so.
Roulette is pretty much the only game I can play at a casino where I don't feel like I am getting totally jobbed (haven't invested time in learning craps yet). I'm not an idiot, I know that casinos are designed to take my money. The reason I play is to sit down with a group of people and have spirited banter about how good or bad the wheel has treated us and maybe come out with a few extra bucks. However, it's during these play sessions, you can find some people with interesting betting strategies.
What can I say, cell phones are one of my guilty pleasures in life. I enjoy the new technology so much that I own 5 cell phone lines for just my wife and I. While that may sound crazy, I can assure you that I do not use more than one cell phone. The rest of my phones have been sold off to pay for the contract commitment. But hey, I was able to own the newest technology until I got tired of it and maybe even make a few bucks by selling it on Ebay.
*tears of joy running down my cheeks, holding up wad of cash*
I would like to take this moment to thank God for giving me the ability to win some money. I would like to thank baby Jesus for saving me from my gambling sin. I would like to thank the tourney director, you know who you are! You have helped make a dream of mine a reality. Last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank my husband, I hope you know who you are. When I thought I didn't have a shot, you never stopped believing in me. Well, there was that one afternoon during the third round when you thought I didn't have a chance in hell. Then when you realized I was indeed still alive, you put a smile back on your face as you saw the potential dollar signs. Thank-you also to my fans (when you wish you were a winner like me, I like to be positive and say you are a fan and not envious.) Drive home safe!
I know most people don't care to see pictures of other peoples kids or pets. But, Im going to post this anyway.
Yes, Big Brother Bot can work remotely to do server administration for gaming servers. I actually purchased a Rackspace Cloud server and setup my own instance of linux to manage all of our games. But thats not what this blog post is about. I want to very briefly discuss an issue I had with setting up B3 with our Call of Duty 2 server using FTPtail.
I'm thinking I should have named my blog "Grind My Gears" after the Family Guy episode after all the bitching I've been doing here. With that said, I want to blog just a bit about one of the best selling games of all time: Call of Duty Black Ops. For all the "fun" this game is, it has many shortcomings that make me wonder why its so popular. More on that in a bit.
