Goodbye iPhone… hello Nexus One! March 30, 2010 at 10:02 pm

As you all know I am a technology nut. I love all aspects of the tech world from software to hardware and all in-between. A few years ago I became infatuated with all things Apple. In 2005 I bought my first Apple product, an iPod. In 2006 I bought a Mac Mini and ventured into the world of OSX. In 2008 I bought an iPhone after much desire and begging of Rogers to carry it.

In the past year though my feelings have changed. In September I purchased a new top of the line Dell PC with Windows 7 and have had no regrets. Windows 7 is stable and sleek and works perfect for me and my needs. That was a big leap but the leap I made this past week was bigger. I purchased a Google Nexus One phone to replace my iPhone.

Moved In! (but work is not done….) August 8, 2009 at 9:44 pm

I write this as I sit in the kitchen of my new house!!! Yes my new house! On Wednesday August 5th Sarah and I picked up the keys to our very own home. It was a happy and exciting time but it wasn’t without its tribulations as well.

Holy Thunderstorm Batman! July 27, 2009 at 7:39 pm

On Sunday July 26 2009 the Hamiltion area got slammed with a little bit of rain. And by little bit I mean record breaking amounts!

Sarah and I were scheduled to take engagement pictures at McMaster University at 2pm. We went to church at 11am and figured that we would have plenty of time to get ready between noon and 2pm. Going into church we could see dark clouds on the horizon but figured the storm would pass when the service finished. I was wrong!

The Wedding Plans April 14, 2009 at 4:00 pm

Well as promised last week I’m back with the details of the wedding plans.

Being just 5 months and a bit away you would think that Sarah and I would be 100% set on the wedding plans and have everything booked and confirmed. Well nope! Actually, its not as bad as I make it out be be but there are still a few things to do.

The biggest and scariest thing is that we still don’t have entertainment. We were going to book a DJ and have them play Croatian songs along with top 40 and oldies. We went to a few stag and does and listened to a few DJ’s and liked what we heard. But we have yet too book something.

I’m Baaaaaack! April 6, 2009 at 8:30 pm

Alright this is not the first time I need to apologize for not posting anything in forever. (See here and here and here). I AM A SLACKER! I get it. You don’t have to remind me. Well I’m back with a vengeance. This time I really want to come back regularly and consistently. I have redesigned the website (which took a lot of time) and I have finally got back in the mood to blog. I have a bunch of topics in mind that I want to bitch and moan about and I finally have the website looking good that I can promote it. So get ready world. I’M BACK!!!

iPhone Screwjob to iPhone Sellout :) July 17, 2008 at 9:55 pm

OK I have succumbed to the powerful pull of the iPhone and I have gone out and purchased one. Yes I know I was one who complained about the prices and the evil that is Rogers but I am now a customer.

I’ll be honest I’m a little ashamed. I was one of the first 500 to sign the online petition at ruinediphone.com and I sent Rogers a nasty email is detailed in my last post. But dammit its a cool device and I wanted it and I guess I have more money then brains.

Stormy night June 17, 2008 at 9:18 pm

This past Sunday night a few nice thunderstorms rolled through town. Since the satellite went down I couldn’t watch TV and I didn’t feel like being stuck inside so I decided to head outside and sit on the porch and watch the storms roll by.

These storms were some of the nicest looking storms that I have seen in a long time. With steady lightning that was reaching the ground and lighting up the sky it was like something out of a movie. Well I decided to make a movie out of it. I grabbed my digital camera and took a few minutes of video, edited it together and compressed it down. Well here it is. It’s 5 minutes long (which is a little long to be watching lightning) but its a pretty sight. Enjoy!

Way Long Overdue Update June 12, 2008 at 6:07 pm

Well as usual I am way overdue in posting. In fact its been over a month, in fact close to 6 weeks!!! OK here I am. I am alive and kicking but busy. That means there is lots to talk about.

Lets go in some sort of logical order. The three weeks that mom and dad were away were great but went too fast. We had a party at my place for my birthday and Sarahs and I anniversary on the weekend of May 10. It was a lot of fun and the pictures are posted here. We were up late and drank lots and ate lots and the weather was perfect. Thanks to everyone that showed up.

Freedom! April 27, 2008 at 11:44 am

Well I am a free man. Well with respect to having an entire house to myself with no one to bother me. My parents have yesterday to Europe, well Croatia more specifically. They have left on a 3 week vacation to visit family and attend a Baptism of my dad’s nieces newborn and visit his other niece that had a baby a few months ago. Plus they haven’t been there in 10 years so its time to visit the rest of the family as well.

Spring has sprung… finally! April 13, 2008 at 10:54 pm

Well its been a month and I guess its time to blather on about whats been happening the last month. It seems to be working so far.

Well as the title says spring is finally here, Although by the weather this weekend you wouldn’t know it. Its been chilly all weekend, but the weather during the week was great and the weather this upcoming week will be perfect too. That makes me happy because I hate cold miserable weather. I can finally go and walk outside and do stuff outside. Hopefully one day I can hit the beach. Although that would involve some holidays at work and I don’t see any of those coming anytime soon.
