I love my sister in law

My sister in law is an amazingly intelligent woman. But lord help her with computers. I sold her my laptop for a very low price back in May. I restored it to the factory configuration and then installed updates and Microsoft Office. All was good for about a month. I worked on it again this weekend and it was peachy keen when I left. Today...its crapola. WTF!?!?! I seriously want her to buy a Macbook.....but the nursing software she uses is not supported on a Mac. It's supported on an iPhone...but not a Mac. I hope I can get her computer running normally again. She really needs the computer. If it is truly dead I will help her get a Macbook as she can run the nursing software on her phone if she needs to. *sigh* Haley and Gianna will be getting a iMacs as soon as they are old enough...prolly around age 5.

Picture frames. I am designing a "Wall of Darren". Really just a wall of letters/photos/memorobillia of me. Well my flying career anyway. I bought several frames today and plan on putting stuff up this week. Not sure where though.

Our entertainment cabinet should be arriving via UPS any minute now. It weighs 97 pounds....and I got free shipping. The cost is the same as Wal-Mart. Either there is a huge markup or Amazon is losing a lot of money.

HD-DVD's look amazing! I watched One Six Right this morning. I have it on regular DVD...the HD-DVD makes the regular DVD look like crap. HD-DVD's are orphans. They will no longer be produced. I bought the Xbox 360 player for $39....damn good deal. HD-DVD movies are under $12 on Amazon...free shipping. Not too shabby.

This website has been a place to store my thoughts for the past 7 years. They are my thoughts. The fact that you are reading them just means you some how found my website (I don't advertise). Kelli used to (well still does) get upset at my post. I explained to her she could have her own website. After a year or two...she finally started one. Anyways I could careless who reads this (hence I don't require you to log in to see my thoughts). I did recently change the way post appear in that one has to click on it to read the full post simply to see my visitor count. My other blog has a different blogging software and is able to count visitors. I was curious about stillageek.com. To my surprise my flying blog get's 60-80 unique (meaning different physical computers) visitors a day, which is twice the number this site gets. Who'd a thunk it. Anyways Stillageek.com is all about me. Getting upset at what's written here (an inantimate being...really just a file sitting on a computer) is akin to getting mad at brick. Finally...two quotes to think about.
Complaining is good for you as long as you're not complaining to the person you're complaining about.
Lynn Johnston, For Better or For Worse, 11-06-03
Canadian cartoonist (1947 - )

I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.
Martha Washington
US wife of George Washington 1759 (1732 - 1802)
