2010-04-19T23:25:32.817-04:00We found this today - Scott Tower in Holyoke.We walked up the street through the park we normally go to and went up the road we normally don't. We didn't even know it was there, and yet it was such a huge part of the town back in the day.I've joined a group to help bring it back and I hope these pictures will help you to realize what an important project this is. Please join the cause to save
2010-03-24T14:30:06.210-04:00There is still time, they've extended the deadline, unfortunately this led to my sister's business being without email for a half a day. I had sent her an email when renewal for her domain was coming up and she said "oh I'm just going to go with this free one" ok, sure... guess things aren't going that well, go ahead and use the free site.Well, when it expired, sure enough I get a call "my email
2010-02-06T14:18:40.723-05:00I got an email the other day that blogger would no longer support FTP. That messes up my whole deal, anyone I ever set up. Myself, my business. my sister, all impacted and I either need to get some great content management system up in less then a month and a half or get some ajax going.Kind of lame for them to do this, they sayh it costs too much money but back in the day I gladly paid for

2009-12-08T20:42:32.179-05:00I had downloaded Battlefield 1942 for the PS3 a while back, shelled out the $15 and it's relatively good. Destructable environments basic gameplay on what Battlefield should be (not Bad Company) and decent graphics for a console.I was especially excited about the prospect of battling cross-platform. PS3, XBOX, and PC all in the same realm? Sign me up to scalp them with my mouse! In any case
2009-11-14T09:00:57.835-05:00I woke early this morning, a cold rainy November day. It wasn't out of preference, there's a big change to the phone system at work today. It was still very dark, cold, and I could hear the rain pouring down outside. I didn't have to go into the office, which is great, a much better way to do work on the Saturday. Besides, making important business decisions in pajamas and disheveled hair

I was very careful this time, doing only one thing at a time and restarting after a change to confirm. I was a bit more cavileer when I was under the impression my errors could be undone. The restore feature was not able to handle the driver change for vital components so keep

I had a LOT of issues with this installation and I'm not even at a point where I can benchmark. 3... maybe 4 installations at this point and I think I've finally got it. I put in another HD so I could avoid RAID issues and I still run into them.My motherboard has 10 SATA ports 4 on one SATA controller, 6 on

You get an int32 error when launching which appears to be a misdeclared variable in the HTTP based launcher. The developers are aware of it but if you're looking to play the DEMO now here's a work around:You may need to change your INI files around a bit, I tried to crank it with a 10 for the quality and a 5 for
2009-08-15T17:47:33.983-04:00Those 4 days went by slowly. I went to work on Monday but that night had Nicole feeling very anxious about the baby's arrival. I worked from home on Tuesday expecting we'd be going in at any time but I worked through the entire day without much incident. Nicole was tired, very pregnant and a couple days past her due date so anything seemed like it could be the time. We went food shopping because
2009-07-21T14:39:57.297-04:00So the baby is on the way, 4 days until the due date. The baby's room is finished, floor sanded, resealed, walls painted, and furnished. Nicole and I both wanted a braided rug as we both have fond memories of racing matchbox cards along the braids. It's a built in racing track. I remember setting up my blocks in a track shape and using the braids as built in lanes. We settled on a nice braided

I have until the beginning of July to finish everything for school. Once class is done and I think I'm in good shape there but the other one I've fallen quite a bit farther behind. I'm just
