Woops.. so that last message got all screwed up..

What I was saying was,..

So I just got an IM from my friend Alex; and he said I was a blog slacker...
I guess I am a blog slacker, I haven't updated my blog in a while.. so here we go.
I have been working on my new site, it is based on the b2 blogger software. It is great,!! I am doing some mods to for my site, and building some hacks for it (which I will post on my site as I complete them) and I am updating my resume. I have been working in Oakland now for Providian. It is a cool job, something different tthan I am used to, but it is a job. I have been really enjoying my train rides in the morning.. I just sit there and listen to music and read books. Anyway, I hope that everyone is well..
I will still be posting one this site, I am building an interfacet that will update this site when I update my new site.. we will see if it works..
Later, B

So I just changed my Laptop to a dual boot.. I am very happy.. I have both Windows XP and Redhat 8.0 running on it. I now have the best of both worlds. There are some issues I have resolve with Redhat, but that is what you get when you install linux.
Life is good, I just need a vacation.. so sort of Island somewhere... some place where Carolyn and I can just relax..
Maybe some day..

So it is the 5th of Jan.. 2003.. How crazy is that.. 2003.. arrggghhhh.. it just reminds me that I am getting old.

So for New Years I quit smoking.. yep, I did.. I though I must be honest and not say completely. I have had a couple here and there..
I mean I really can quit cold turkey, I have gone from 20+ or 1 pack plus.. to maybe 5 a day.. That isn't too bad..

Well, I hope that everyone had a great new years.

Well it is the dawning of another year... I can't believe that another year has passed.. It was a strange year full of highs and lows..

Well, let's start by saying that Christmas was great, Carolyn and I had a great time. We spent Christmas morning opening gifts, taling to family and friends.. We had a great morning.. That afternoon we went to our friends Christie house and had a great dinner. Christie is a great cook.. she went completely overboard with the most wonderful food. It was just Christie, Jerimiah, Carolyn and I.. We had a blast.

It was really nice to have a wonderful Christmas dinner together.. we were very happy and full.

Well, tonight we aren't really sure what we are going to do for New Years Eve.. We will go spend it with friends and have a great time.. Then sleep in tomorrow..
I will write tomorrow about the festivities.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful time on their New Years, and that everyone is happy and safe..

So Christmas is tomorrow.. Carolyn and I are going to a out friends Christie's house for the holiday. It should be a lot of fun.. We will be spending it with our friends this year so that should be good. We have been going crazy with the shopping thing. I am just trying to get used to the work thing in all. I have a hell of a commute and it is interesting but not too bad. I have been reading a lot and listening to my mp3's.

On the technology front.. I have been playing with Virtual PC 5 for Windows. I love it.. I am always torn between my love for Linux and the need to have XP. So on my new laptop I have XP installed and I am running Virtual PC to have Linux... I love have both.. I am downloaded Redhat 8.0 and let me tell you, it is a great system. I really think that the industry is starting to get the idea of a great Linux desktop.

I have also been working on some intersting ideas of my own.. but I can't get into them now.. but it is programing in .NET for mobile devices.. Once I have a prototype for what I am doing I am going to make it open source and put it out there..

Well, I hope that everyone enjoys the Holiday and has a great New Years..

Well, I am working at Providian in Oakland. It is an intertesting experience.

The commute is hell, but I am getting used to it. I will soon start to learn to love the BART.

Carolyn and I are getting ready for Christmas, and we are going to be staying in the area this year.

We are sad that we can't go and see our families and that we will be spending it with just us. I am a

really lucky guy to have a wife like Carolyn. She is just wonderful and I love her more and more everyday.

Well enough with the mushy stuff.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Holiday and a Great New Years.
