Seeing better this morning than I was last night (1/2 able to see the keyboard on my laptop). The haze is down to 15-20% of last night, so another day or so of that to look forward to :rolleyes: I *WAS* able to see well enough to read at his office today, then got more numbing drops put in to ease t...

Don't mind me... I'm just 1/2 blind

What a way to spent the xmas season... Home for the holidays to get my cataracts taken care of. Left eye was done this afternoon, and I can 1/2 see with it... Red haze on everything that should be gone in the morning, but enough that I'm not watching a movie today. Followup in 7.5hrs according to my...

only my niece to spoil, and despite having a multitool for her last year, she's not quite ready for a good knife (still in the stage of misplacing anything that's not securely fastened to her). Have both a TV-B-Gone and a gift card for Coles in my luggage for her, have to pick up a couple more thing...

I'm still kicking, just not online 24/7 now

Just figured I've give a quick update in case anyone's looking for me. I've actually got a job that keeps me busy all day dealing with issues, beats the hell out of my last few jobs where I stare at the clock all day. Today for example I looked at it twice... when I grabbed my lunch and to check how...

Ah, the beauty of multi-quote, lot easier than doing this all manually... I agree with you on the winders. I bought one and it stunk, literally. It had a funny smell and ended up putting a haze on the glass of one of my watches. It was noisy and didn't spin enough times/hour to keep the watch runnin...

watch winders, anyone?

So to celebrate this new job, I went out and picked up a new Titanium Citizen EcoDrive. Of course that means that my Invicta will sit at home when it's on rotation. The fact that the invicta is a kinetic automatic wasn't a problem for the last year, since it was the primary watch on rotation despite...

until I get my network up and running here, I'm surfing with a telus stick on my 7" eeepc... not the best thing for chat.

Hopefully get it all up and running in the next little bit here, ideally it's just a quick mod to my surfing tower and making some custom cables for my server rack.

I'm 1/2 unpacked (still don't have my server rack cabled in, my books and dvd's out, or my surfing tower online yet... right now found a decent open network to use for a couple days until I get all ...

Dunno where you're getting gas, but all the ones I hit still have the latches.

Went through security twice 2 months ago, dressed for an interview.

Problem with AA in a camera is, the camera companies don't like to make them anymore. I waited for approximately a year for Canon to make a point and shoot that ran off of AA batteries AND took high def video. They never made it! My kodak runs off AA's :p The DX3500 I bought way back in '02 was gre...
