New Rugs and Video Liquidators Porn Shop

First of all I am using Google Picasa for importing and resizing images on my laptop. I suggest it for anyone who has a digital camera. It lets you do everything you could ever need with photos, touchup, rotate, resize, tag, sort into collections, etc and best of all it is free. You can get it here

image

We went to FWS this weekend, where I once again was not able to dress up my home for less. It seems like every time we go there it costs ~$1000.

My new rug brings out the brighter tones in my office. (e:matthew) got a nice new rug for the living room too.

Also seems like the road signs are taking a beating this year.
image

I can't believe anyone still buys this type of technology. It seems totally inappropriate for 2007.
image

While we were at FWS, I noticed the porn store next door now sells "420 smoking products" and "dancer footware." Notice the smaller sign to the right. What a weird combo, or maybe not.

I feel sick and pics of the week

In the middle of the oscars I started to feel achey. I thought it was from carrying the new rugs we bought into the house. It wasn't I was getting ill. Soon a headache set in and a fever. I spent the whole night lying there awake and feeling really unpleasant. I hate illnesses that you cannot sleep through. The sleep through kind are tolerable because I don't ind sleep for extended periods of time, blah.

On a good note, I do not have high blood pressure at all. I guess it was just soe freak individual readings because now that I read it like 3 times a day and graph it, it is generally very normal.

Here are some pics from my camera that have no real common theme.

That art workshop on Allen and Main seems to have closed down or at least downsized.

Is this an advertisement to suggest we drink clam juice?

Cornish Hens taste great cooked by a cornish woman.

I swear I saw some grass one day!
image

The mardis gras parade was really lame. It was about one block long. I guess the weather was shitty and we were as much to blame as everyone else because we didn't make a float. Maybe next year?

Me and (e:mike) at pardi gras.

I found these iceblocks in front of my tenants house. What could such a large solid iceblock come from?

This is ironic don't you think. It should no laying down.

Scallops are yummy.

I went crazy and got soe shoes. Three pairs to be exact.

What isn't this about?

First of all Nick, do you really think that after all you put me through, I would ever help you with anything?

Then google earth is amazing. I loved it since it was Keyhole. They now have a nice linux binary installer. That is fantastic. My house has now been added as a 3D model, even if it just is a giant cube.

image

The hospital is just a big chunky block thing. It seems that you can build better texturized models with google sketchup and then upload them to google earth. HSBC has one, I wonder if Roswell Park will ever want one.

image

Here is how I walk home.

image

I bought a tiny microchip a while ago that can remember everywhere it went for two weeks and saves the data in KML the format that google earth reads to plot maps. It seems like I just need a fun project for it now.

I spent the evening electronically walking down millionaire row, the name for the fanciest part of Delaware, where all the mega mansions are. The Buffalo As An Architectural Museum site is a great place for pictures inside the homes. Did anyone else know that Delaware and North was considered the premiere property in buffalo? To bad the beautiful mansion there faces a Walgreens instead of a hill down to the city.

This is the first mansion at that corner.

image

It was replace by this amazing one. Why couldn't I have been a rich industrialist. I guess I would have missed computers.

image

image

image

The people that built these mansion were the least responsible preservationists. They knocked down the giant beautiful mansion that were there before to built the ones there now.

Here is the pre-knox mansion, mansion on the same plot
image

Here is the mansion they built.

They caught a very giant squid near Austalia. Look at its giant body trial out the back. It is just screaming lemon, garlic.

Look (e:terry), it is the old hotel we used to live in jena.

Blood pressure wrist monitor

They had these digital wrist based blood pressure monitors at Walgreens on Sale for $59 with rebate. I was so exicted about it but when I brought it to the counter, the nice looking pharmacist told me that they were really inaccurate and not to buy it.

I was going to settle on a blood sugar monitor but I get the feeling you need a presecription for the strips.

I think I have a medical technology addiction now. I am starting to think about biofeedback. I have a feeling it could be a life altering experience.

Okay off to eat some yummy octopus at Kostas.

New Estrip Bloodpressure Application

Well, I have been having this crazy high blood pressure issue. I should really just go to a doctor but I need to find one I like. Anyhow, my sitting blood pressure is like 134/90+ and my moving one is around 150/90+

This is crazy considering it was so much lower only months ago. Anyways, I decided to get a digital blood pressure machine and write a little online app for recording your blood pressure. I think this weekend I will make it available to all the members of estrip in case any of you are in the need to track you own blood pressure. I graphs it out and gives you a table of you past week.

image

I add a graph post to this tomorrow so you can see it.

Another Web application

I hated this one. It is an employee evaluation system. I wish it would be over soon so that I can do more fun things. It's actually rather complicated.

Surebert Pages Designs


Yes, that is a lung tumor blocking a wind pipe. What do you think of the wind pipe menu?

This is the default style for the surebertpages CMS. I am so excited about getting a mac at some point so I can run Illustrator again.

Ovarian Cancer Site For Gilda

Today I worked on porting the old ovariancancer.com site over to my surebert CMS. It was fun to use illustrator again to create a Gilda Radner. I miss it a lot since switching to linux. Not that inkscape and the others aren't great but they just are no illustrator. Probably because I am used to it.

This is really not funny

I know this is a horrible, not funny topic, so I am not saying anything about it. I am just pasting the image I got off google news this morning after the terrorist based "bomb" blast in india. The image has since been removed from google news.
