writing from my new phone

The keyboard on this phone is much better than my old one but still not as awesome as the sidekick2. Maybe I just need to get used to it thlught because I can already type really fast on it.

The GPS is nice but like 3 said I don't go anywhere. Okay next step is to watch startrek on it.

My Stomach

Like right under my stomach has been hurting for about a week now. No matter what I eat, no matter what time of day - it just kind of hurts - sometimes it feels a little better but mostly hurts, especially after I eat. I suppose maybe I should see a doctor, but I keep telling myself that it will go away - hoping it is a flu like symptom because (e:matthew) just had a flu.

Please don't let it be an ulcer ;)

Resolution and relationships

The way the garden looks, is how I feel right now.

image

I guess at least the new phone is coming tomorrow, although at this point nothing can really make me happy. I think it is time to join the gym again. This time I am going to try Allentown Athletix, which is just around the corner form us.

I got into a huge fight with (e:matthew) yesterday about a random chimney shaft in our bedroom wall that connects to no mantel. Based on previous pictures I had taken with a web cam on a 6 ft USB chord, I thought that the tunnel went down and to the left but what I thought was a "floor" and a tunnel to the left turned out the be an odd brick of the side of the shaft wall.

I thought that brick or whatever it is was the bottom in the usb webcam view and that the hole on the end was a turn to the left.

image

When I switched to the 7MP camera with flash I got a much better view.

image

I wish I didn't get so angry about it at 2am last night. Sometimes, I can be a jerk. I am embarrassed for the way I acted but I was so sure I was right.

Anyways, the good news I think we can switch the Den and our bedroom and get a wood or gas burning insert similar to the one that (e:enknot) has at his house and have it be direct vent. This is a much better alternative to the next vented ones that make me ill.

You can see the chimney straight up and it looks easy enough to line it ourselves considering it is just a straight trip up.
image

I thought someone might find this amusing

Look at the clipart they used in this professional article about the iphone in Europe. It is a freakin' old white ipod on a slide phone, running windows mobile. Seems like no one fact checked that one.
image

I am switching from qmail to postfix and got my book in the mail today. I am not sure why. I just wanted to try something new and got sick of setting up qmail on the new server although I did it before on the old one.
image

There has been lots of progress on the new site, don't think I forgot! I just hurt my neck and it is slowing me down, argh.

Bored to death, christmas market

paul 18:51 I am so bored
imk2 18:52 i never hear you say that youre bored
paul 18:52 haha, i have never been bored unitl tonight i think
paul 18:53 I couldn't describe
paul 18:52 because there was some new feeling
paul 18:52 i thought I wanted to kill myself
paul 18:53 and then it hit me that I was bored



We went to the broadway market this afternoon. It was lame. Maybe we went at the wrong time but I will surely never go back to find out.

The way there was so pretty. I love traveling down sycamore. It is by far the most scenic view of Buffalo.

(e:terry) says they are developing som enew village here that he read baout on Buffalo rising.
image

image

image

No seriously, it makes me want to do a documentary about the history of advertising signs that rusted out.
image

While this pretty church is dead, every single other non-burned down, non-boarded up warehouse and crappy house is some other sect of freaky Christianity with blacked out windows.
image

This is what I expect in a Christmas Market.
image

Then we got there...
image

and this is what it was.
image

Back over to elmwood

We got new glasses today at Elmwood Specs. I had the same prescription. My only problem with the place was that the doctor brought her dog with her. I was very allergic to that kind of poodley dog so it wasn't so horrible but if it had been a cat, I think I might have died.
image

Why did stache or whoever owns this building paint the half timbering over? It seems really trashy.
image

I hope elmwood doesn't become sycamore ever.

Thanksgiving

This is a little late but I have been so busy setting up the new server. So here it goes.

There is finally snow everywhere, He is some on the front windshield of the car on the way to my mothers for thanksgiving.
image

I forgot to tak any pictures of all the amazing food for once. I was so hungry I forgot about tthe camera. After dinner my Dad got out al the liquor, considering they don't drink very much , a lot of it was quasi vintage.
image

Don't the instructions on the back of this bacadi bottle seem kind of redundant.
image

I discovered that Peach Snapps and Cointreau makes a slightly stronger fuzzy navel - minus orange orange juice. I think Cointreau is my new favorite liquor.
image
image

The whole family played games minus me and the kids. I don't really like games very much.
image

The kids played with their webkins on the computer. WHy didn't I think of making something like that.
image

We made little turkey stickers.
image

I got all my old yearbooks which has plenty of blog fodder. As an example, this yearbook entry by (e:oda) formerly known as emily.

New Tiajuana

(e:matthew) and I were talking about outside investors after reading (e:ajay,42263) and then thinking about Canadian consumers with more valuable currency and I couldn't help but think of Buffalo as the new tiajuana. Our bars are open till four, their money will be worth more in our Casinos.

Please don't ever let me have to resort to selling chicklets on the street.

Paul's Cranbery Sauce

I cooked some cranberry sauce again this year but have a better camera so I am going to post the pics again. The search on the new site is so much better I used it to look up my old journals about cranberry. You will be happy when I finally release it.

This is a thanksgiving morning look at (e:terry)
image

Cranberry sauce
Grate some ginger
image

Zest some tangerine, orange, or grapefruit skin.
image

Wash the cranberries, I use two bags of ocean spray from wegmans but the ones form the coop are better. (e:terry) did the shopping, not me

image

image

Put two cups of orange juice in a sauce pan and turn the heat on.
image

Add the berries and boil then simmer until they all break. You might need to pop them with a wooden spoon a bit.
Add all the zest and some brown sugar.
image

Then it is done when it is thick
image

(e:terry) made some more bacon wrapped asparagus.

September Eleven

First off, Happy Thanksgiving
image

Rudy Guilliani
No matter how diverse our political feelings are here on estrip. I think that we can probably agree that no one likes Rudolph Guilliani, right? I just can't get over his inability to pronounce the "th" in eleventh.

I got it from the september 11th remix site.

The iphone in Germany

I would also like to point out today that German law triumphed in a way over Apple when tmobile in Germany was forced to sell the iphone unlocked (although very expensively).

T-Mobile's new unrestricted phone option will cost €999 ($1,477), versus €399 (US$590) for a locked phone purchased with a two-year T-Mobile contract.



However, what makes it even better is that anyone who already bought the iphone there is getting them unlocked for free. How, the Euro has gotten so expensive or the dollar has gotten so cheap.

Who looks at these advertisments?
I frankly cannot believe that web advertisments work. It seems like every site is having more and more of them, so are the ones they have less sucessful. I find it so easy to totally ignore the advertisments. Like who click on the Garnier advertisment way the frick down at the bottom of the christian science monitor of all place

Look how far down it is. It is even further down on the real non-zoomed out version of the site

My New HTC Tilt phone

Is an ATT phone and it will have flash, streaming radio, instant messaging, a 3 megapixel camera, 3g/wifi/bluetooth, outlook email GPS, a keyboard, a terminal and tethering. All the requirements for my next phone. Here is a good review. It is normally $599 but amazon has them on sale for $174. You have to love the new customer deals.

Someone had told me that ATT didn't have 3G in buffalo. I guess that was wrong because according to their coverage maps it does.

image

I freakin can't wait till it comes and I can use the GPS so I stop getting lost on the way to and from work.

(e:terry) and (e:matthew) got sony ericson walkman phones. We will see how that goes.

Apple sniffing your stocks?

I was reading this article about apple sending back your IMEI (phone ID number) with info requests when using the stocks and weather application on the iphone.
image

All I can say is wow. I can understand way they would want to track data but it seems like the stock data in particular could be a serious problem. Well, at least a seriously unfair advantage for apple when investing. If you combine that data somewhere you could easily mine important stock information. If you combined it with real name data, which they have, now that you are no longer allowed to buy an iphone with cash anyways and because ATT (spies) have all your data anyways, it seems like they could create a system that would help them identify hot stocks to buy and sell.

When you are using a wifi connection instead of the ATT connection there would normally be no identifying info for apple, except that they send the IMEI along.

<sarcasm>Luckily, it is not a business phone so the real wallstreet analyst types probably do not have one.</sarcasm> It's totally sketchy. Apple is really not what I once thought they were. Although I like the hardware, I am beginning to see that the company is essentially not much better than microosft.
