This is why people laugh at Floridians

30 09 2005

Florida Students (in Tampa and Pinellas where I live) argue they need air-conditioned buses while gas prices skyrocket, by explaining kids spend a lot of time on their hair in the morning.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY DAWN AND DREW!

30 09 2005

anniversaryI wish you two the absolute best. You certainly have been great friends to me and you two couldn’t be a better suited couple.

Have fun in NY and I wish you guys the greatest day!





Certainly is New York Shitty

29 09 2005

I arrived in Ny ahead of schedule at 4:19pm. It is now 5:41p and I am still waiting to leave the airport. I am now taking Super Shuttle into the city but this van is full so who knows what order I will be in.

Technically she isn’t even the right driver for me but she took me since I’ve been waiting so long.

Was supposed to be in SoHo to meetup with Dawn and Drew 13 minutes ago. NEVER EVER take a 12 hour trip to New York.

Man the van keep getting packed. I kind of want to jump out and take a cab even though it would be $50 to where I need to go.

I hope the rest of this trip is better and I am able to leave the freaking airport.





Posting from Sidekick II

29 09 2005

I just remembered that my Sidekick can get online, duh…and I can post this way instead of trying to fiddle with the email posting which wasn’t working.

So let’s see if this makes it to the site….if so I am soo moblogging the trip.





Vonage SimulRing – New Feature

29 09 2005

vonageWell today I got an email from Vonage about a new feature called SimulRing.

Instead of forwarding to a different number after a certain number of rings or seconds…now an incoming call rings your home number and up to 5 other numbers at the same time.

Perfect for if the incoming call is for someone who isn’t home…they can just pickup their cell phone and it would be like a normal call.

Pretty nifty feature…I want to try it out when I get back from NY with an inbound call and three people picking up their phone at the same time…see who gets the call.





New York Shitty..err City

29 09 2005

NYCYou do not know how excited I am right now. At noon I will be leaving work and heading over to the airport to fly to NYC the big apple.

I’ve got on some great pinstripe pants and packed my gadget bag…I’m ready to go.

Traveling VERY light since I am only going to be there for 12 hours (4:30p today – 5:00am tomorrow morning). I’ve gotta be back to work hence the short trip.

Going up to see my friends Dawn and Drew. It looks like they made it up there safe and sound. The D&D gathering will be at Circus Contraption then heading over to Acebar after that. Feel free to head on over if you are in the area.

Well I need to head off, but I will catch you on the flipside. I am taking my brand new digi cam and will post the pics on my Flickr account as soon as I get back.

BTW on a side note. I wrestled with the idea of taking my iBook…and decided it would just be too much to lug around all day and night. So I will be offline for about 22 hours..yikes. Wish me well. I still have my Sidekick II just in case I feel the need to check some RSS feeds.





Incase case for iPod nanos!

28 09 2005

It wasn’t but yesterday that I was griping that Incase hadn’t come out with a case for the nano yet.

Enter iLounge’s blog post today.

Wallet for iPod nano
The Incase nano Wallet is available in black or pink leather with gray suede lining, and features a screen protector and cord wrap-around function. The case has a single fold and opens up like a book. It will sell for $19.95.

Neoprene Sleeve for iPod nano
The Neoprene Sleeve is similar to the company’s Sports Case for the nano, but features a belt clip in place of a hand strap and armband. Available in black for $19.95, the case offers a velcro closure, screen protector and click wheel cover with play-through access.

Leather Folio for iPod nano
Incase’s new Leather Folio features a flip-down design with an over-the-top button closure, suede lining, belt clip and screen protector. The leather case will be available only in black for $24.95.

Neoprene sleve:

Wallet case:

I have ALWAYS used Incase cases for my iPod exclusively. I am leaning toward the Neoprene sleve or the wallet. I have always used the leather options they have and am not so impressed with the neoprene.

I don’t like having a flap over my screen, but the nano is so small it shouldn’t be so bad. I cannot wait for them to be avaliable in october.

BTW I don’t think I will go with pink…maybe a black for my 4 gig black nano.





Travel tips from Google?

28 09 2005

Google blogSomething about “Economy Class Syndrome” and blood clots. Well it is good to know info, but why is Google posting this on their official blog?

Guess it’s apt timing since I am flying to NYC tomorrow!





Google License Plate Frame – $1.20 Total

28 09 2005


“If you’re feeling lucky, let your fellow motorists know where things stand.” Free shipping, so it’s only $1.20!

I am not sure if I blogged this or not about a month ago it came out on Digg.com. I placed my order that day.

It’s been about 34 days since and it is finally shipping. Guess I will have to take pics of my new Google License plate when it comes in.
