It seems like things have gotten busier since school got out, but it sure is nice to be out of school. Penny is done now too, and probably won’t be going back to her job at Keller in the Fall. She has three clients with respite program though, and they will keep her busy this summer.
Man, I am swamped. I haven’t officially started working full-time just yet (couple more weeks) but I am still putting in about 40 hours a week, and its a lot of work. I use to do 40 hours at the Carwasher during the summers (and though they were good times with the family, I am glad that I don’t have to work there anymore… it’s just not my thing) but I still feel like I have no time right now. Also, I’m trying to write two websites in my spare time: the new Regular Heroes website (not done) and Giveaweigh (my charity website, not done). By the way, the Regular Heroes album is almost done. It’s exciting! I’m actually going to the studio this week with Jared to finish up the back up vocals.
Well, that’s the update for now. You should check out Wolfram|Alpha though if you have some spare time. It is a “computational knowledge engine” that performs math, analyzes facts, and other things. Try searching for things like “$75,000/yr”, “x^2 sin(x)”, “D# Ab G C#”, or “China, Russia”. It’s fun!Click here to leave a comment
I plan on losing weight this summer, and I plan and doing it to help others. I will be building a website around this lose-weight-for-charity concept, but I need help on deciding which name to go with. Please give me your input.
If this idea sounds interesting and you want to know more, want to help, or want to lose weight with me, send me an email or get in touch with me on Facebook or Twitter. I plan on using the proceeds to benefit Christian and Stephanie Nielson and Magaret Manning. I haven’t talked to either of them about this yet, but I will soon, once I get the ball rolling.Click here to leave a comment
Last year I wrote this poem for my wife for Mother’s Day. I think it is a very nice poem. It truly captured how I was feeling, and also had a unique structure that I still quite enjoy. The poem is written in rhyming couplets, but each of the couplets are separated by a short line that both ends the thought of the previous couplet and begins the thought of the next. It’s kind of interesting. I hope you enjoy.
The second SWAT Analysis is now up on YouTube (first one here). Jared gives a hilarious summary and review of the new X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie. If you haven’t seen the actual movie, this will contain spoilers… sort of. If you have seen it already, you will totally understand what is going on. I generally enjoyed the movie, but there were some things that were pretty hokey, and Jared points these out very well. Check it out:

So… I have gotten a few funny CAPTCHAs recently as I have signed up for some services online. CAPTCHAs are those extra parts of sign up forms on websites that ask you to read and type in some sort of distorted-looking word. You probably think they are annoying (and I happen to agree with you), but they are a good way to reduce the amount of spam on websites due to attacks from spambots and other automated programs. reCAPTCHA is one of the more secure (and accessible) CAPTCHA services available. In fact, it is so secure sometimes that I even have a hard time signing up for things when they are protected by reCAPTCHA. The few I have had recently have either been completely unreadable or have contained characters that you can’t actually type. I mean, you can get them by using the Windows character map, but who wants to do that? Here are a few hard ones:
Umm… I think the first word is the name Gwinn followed by a period. The second word? Not sure at all. I think it might be something like “höara”. Anyone else have a better idea?
