The inside was disgusting

All hope is lost, the inside of the mansion at 23 North was disgusting even for $149,000. I would probably cost like 1.3 million to remodel it and would require cranes, something I refuse to need. I went and took a look at it during my break with (e:matthew) and the guy from Holcbery, the realtor. It was a fuckign disaster. Everything was not original, everything was tacky and broken. Honestly, the radio tower, outerbrick wall and parking lot was all it had going for it. In one area someone had shit on the wall I think.

image

image

All it had was this one pretty thing left.

image

image

I honestly smell like the side smell of the interior and it won't come off my clothing. I think even (e:matthew) is over it.

image

image

image

If it was an empty burned out shell of the brick wall it would have been better but I can't imagine halling out and tearing out the thousands of layers of nastiness, not to mention it was so moldy that there were actually mushrooms growing inside, which means you can't just cover stuff over.

Mansion Paradise With a Radio Tower

Oh my freakin god, give me a radio tower. This is my dream come true. a giant mansion at 23 North Street with commercial space, a parking lot and a fucking radio tower near my work. It would mean rental income, and estrip headquarters, a daycare - 11,000 freakin square feet.

I want a radio tower so bad you have no idea. Can you imagine all the applications? Can you imagine the photos?

Cancer Viewer Application

My dermatology viewer application is coming along great. Today I had a meeting with the doctor who requested it and he seemed genuinely impressed. It allows for zoom ,hue, saturation, brightness, contrast, sharpen and position changes which are all logged via surebert to a database so that the image maintains state between uses. Anytime someone switches images, saves, or leaves the site - the current images data is saved to the database. To remain compliant with HIPAA compliant it also keep an annotated log of what it is doing and who is using it and can report what it is doing using HL7

Doctors and clinicians can also add their own annotations.

It feels good to make things that have some purpose other than social networking. The app isn't blurry, I just blurred out everything you could identify.

image

I know its weird but I though skin tones was an appropriate color scheme. When testing some out in ther derm clinic today, I thought about how werid it would be to some day be a patient image inside my own application. I just hope that never happens.

super market sweep

We went to the grocery store last night after the gym. I was tired and really hungary. I swear the extra five more pounds (now at 155lbs) I gained is hungrier than the other pounds I previously had.

So it was like 11pm and I had no list, no coordinated effect with (e:matthew) or (e:terry) and decided to just do it supermarket sweep style.

I seriously just through everything I wanted in the cart and the trick was (e:terry) had the cart so I had to grab as much stuff as I could hold and then run to the cart somewhere in the store to drop it off so I could get more.

image

$500 laters I have food again. This is what we get for going grocery shopping only once a month for three people.

I didn't buy this sushi because it was too expensive $11.75, although I do love octopus and squid but not for that price for nighttime, grocery store grade susge.

image

I also bought some weight gainer mix that could be
3100 calories per drink. I drank half that and thought I was gonna puke. It felt like that episode of southpark when cartman becomes beefcake.

Glad I don't live in california. Apparently, it sucks there according the wegmans.

image

Yum stooper waffles. They are my mana.

new server falls in my lap

Work was giving away an old server. It isn't the latest, greatest but it does have a solid steel, nearly bullet proof case and a raid setup with 4 drives at 10k speed.

I am going to set it up as the estrip backup server. In case anything happens, this backup can be set to go until the other one is fixed. Plus it gives me a test server to play with, and true data redundancy at an offsite storage facilty should anything ever happen to artvoice's basement. e.g. a flood or something.

The Linwood Tour

The houses are really fancy, the people are reallly pretentious. I don't have any pics accept for this one of us on the street. The atmosphere felt non-condusive to taking photos.

image

There was a firmware for my phone that came out and it was reported to fix the video cam problem, maybe tehre will be more video on my journal. The problem is that updating it wipe dout all of my programs. This made me spend the entire night updating my phone which required that I reboot it a millions times. It was so frustrating bt everything is back to normal and google maps work better than ever. I just watched like four episodes of start trek while it "updated." Unfortunately, becase the ocmputer was tied up with the update, I didn't get to finish the new site updates I had planned for today. Soon yo will each get yor own custom theme so yo can pick ot yor own colors sing a fancy schamcy color slider thing I built.

On a totally separate note does anyone know what this building on North Johnson Park
used to be. It is in total disrepair now but looks like it was something fancy.

Hiking in the City

Geocaching. I still haven't gone but I want to and I own three different kinds of gps units. Just type your zipcode ito geocaching.com to see all the caches around you

We, (e:matthew) , (e:terry) and I, were gonna go hiking at zoar valley today but it didn't happen because of a million reasons, one of which is that I did not want to bring the tortoise in and (e:mattew) was working till 2PM. So we ended up going down to the Erie Canal.

The boyscouts were having some sort of jamboree at the battleships. You can find them at the corner of Maine and Maine.
What is up with that?

image

image

image

image

image

They are rebuilding the canal, well at least it looks like they are rebuilding the canal.

image

image

(e:matthew) decided to take part of the canal home with him.

image

Buffalo has so many grain mills. These ones are between waterfront, the new casino/projects and the first ward.

image

image

image

We ended up at Times beach - now an wildlife preserve. It seems liek a cool place to watch birds but seems way to nasty and industrial to play at too much.

It all seems to toxic like everywhere i spent my childhood. Here is some info about it

image

The algae is so long it looks like a furry shag rug.

image

image

We tried to walk along the breakwall to get to the old lighthouse but its blocked by an army base.

image

I got this stress releiving squeezy toy from Roswell Park but the tortoise started to eat it. (e:matthew) took it out of his area and then the squirrels decided to eat it. What the hell is up with it, is it that yummy? I have to admit I kinda wanted to chew on it to.

Basra the Freedom Tortoise

I let Basra run free this afternoon. He ate lots of hay and dandelions and violets. Everytime I pick him up he freaks out because he just doesn't want to go inside. I feel bad for him. I wonder if he can possibly understand that it is ever is "not nice out" because we only take him outside durign the warm months. I wonder if he thinks that it is always nice out but we just keep him imprisoned most of the time in his very own bedroom.

image

At least I will able to pick him up when he is 150 lbs, although not if he is kicking, as he likes to do when you try and take him inside. In case you are wondering what his name is about, we got him on the day they bombed basra to "free it."

Life coaches and a tower

I started to work on my thesis for ten minutes when I dicovered I am not meant for editing and re-editing words in human language. To me right now, human language is such a totally inefficient to express what my project was about. I have already written about 300,000 lines of code and 2034 journals encompassing 326,085 words. When is enough, enough?

Anhow, so on to the interesting stuff, life coaches. I don't want one but the TV show I was watching in the background involved 3 straight men going to a life coach (the actress who also plays Dr. Quinn) to learn how to get women to love them. What is this life coach business all about? Is it even real. So i typed it into google, just google it (GOOGLE - life coach). It seems like it is all the rage and maybe it will give someone here a career option they hadn't though of. Is it just a fnacy name for a therapist or is it just something for rich people with too much time.

If I ever get a life coach, please just kill me. Please.

On a side note:

After months of disputes over the future of ground zero, state and city officials finally brought in the heavy equipment and began construction on Thursday on the 1,776-foot Freedom Tower that will rise at the World Trade Centre site.



Just thinking about that building makes me shudder. There is no way I wouldn ever go in it. In fact I would rather use the microwave when slightly open. Why build something that is screaming target so much.
