How about two more years…

Yeah, what can I say…I’m awful about updating this website anymore. Thankfully a server move on my host (GoDaddy) required me to download everything on this site and relocate it today.

So I figured this was a natural checking in point. I spent the morning at a local coffee shop here in Dallas adding to some of my portfolio and then the afternoon at a brewery (because, that’s what I like to do…). As I sit here at Peticolas Brewing Company (easily one of the best breweries in Dallas), drinking a four-year old version of one of my favorite beers (Sledgehammer), I figured now was a as good of a time as ever to write a little post.

Where do I begin about the last couple of years? I guess the biggest thing to discuss was a trip to Europe back at the end of last year/early part of this year. Becca and I traveled to eight countries in three weeks. We saw Dublin, Paris, several smaller towns in France, Antwerp, Cologne, Hamburg and Berlin in Germany, plus Vienna, Liverpool and Northern Wales. I hope to one day get a nice photo gallery of our trip on this site, though going through 2000 some photos is always tough.

Aside from that, I’m still writing over at BigDSoccer.com and working at HPUMC. Rigby is also still keeping Becca and I busy with his general craziness and fluffiness.

New Stuff

If you’ve made it this far on my site, you can tell my site went through a little re-do. I move the blog into an internal page to kind of showcase what I do professionally and on the side as a hobby. I figured since I don’t blog a ton on here as it as about my personal life that when I do it will be fine to be off the main page here. That way I can remove a resume site from my dot-com’s server and open up some database space to play around with some other things that I’ve been wanting to do (looking at you Drupal).

I think this is a change for the better until Becca and I begin the whole family thing. I’m still trying to figure out where to put all my photos. I may just create some cool galleries on here for a change. We’ll see. 🙂

More Fun With the Droid

I’ve had a couple more weeks with the Droid RAZR. After my initial post on the phone, some of my initial thoughts have changes.

For one, the battery is a little better when both the Bluetooth, the LTE and various apps that require location services aren’t running at the same time. Common sense really I suppose. Should have known not to have all of those things running at the same time during the day.

As for the LTE experience, it is still pretty sweet. I have vastly enjoyed being able to ride around Dallas with a phone that has such a fast internet speed. It certainly makes lunchtime more fun to be able to surf the web.

I’ve also finally done some customization to the phone, just general theming really. I’ll try to post some photos whenever I can figure out how to take a screen shot of the phone.

One final note for this post, nothing new on the Ice Cream Sandwich to the RAZR though. I still would really like to play around with that on this round of testing.

Verizon Ambassadors

Creepy Mascots

Can’t say I disagree with any of these. I may bump those DQ lips up from #10 though. For some reason those commercials always gave me the willies.

New Coldplay…Sweet

I’ve been waiting a while for this.

Listen to the man.

Looks good

I’m pretty sure this will be in my head all day. Just no getting around that.
