I wish I had more time

June 30, 2004 at 06:56 PM

I would really like to update more and there's still a ton of changes to the site I've been wanting to make, but with work I just don't have the time/energy. I spend eight hours a day staring at a monitor and looking at code, so when I get home I just can't get around to working on this site. Trust me, I'd much rather spend my time updating here then working on stuff for... Continue reading

My view

June 25, 2004 at 01:05 PM

Not only did I get an office here at work, but it came with a great view. We're on the fifth floor so I have a great view of the tollway from here. Right now there's a thunderstorm rolling in. Pretty cool to see the rain and lightning around all the tall buildings. I'll try to get pictures sometime soon.... Continue reading

Carlos Beltran to Houston

June 25, 2004 at 12:49 PM

In a move that really snuck up on me, the Astros acquired centerfielder Carlos Beltran from the Kansas City Royals yesterday. The Houston Chronicle had an article on the deal yesterday morning, but it sounded pretty speculative and also that talks were dead. They were far from it I guess. In a three team deal the Astros sent closer Octavio Dotel to Oakland and catching prospect John Buck to the Royals. The A's sent... Continue reading

Penny Arcade knows my pain

June 24, 2004 at 03:42 PM

I don't really mind most of the time, I like talking about computers. But sometimes my family/friends can have especially retarded tech support questions. Well, PA knows my pain.... Continue reading

Shaq a Maverick? T-Mac a Rocket?

June 22, 2004 at 06:14 PM

What is the basketball world coming to? I don't know how much my view of things is skewed being in Dallas and listening to Dallas sports radio (which by the way is a billion times better than San Antonio sports radio.) But it even seems all the national hosts are talking about is basketball and two of the games biggest stars coming to Texas. I like the deal for Houston. It makes since to give... Continue reading

Work is going well

June 18, 2004 at 09:34 AM

After a rough start Monday and Tuesday work has gotten a ton better. They kind of threw us into the fire with little direction or explanation so it was tough. By like 1:30 on our first day of work they already had told us to work on a Access project. But it was next to impossible to do with the little information on it they had given us and with such a lack of knowledge... Continue reading

CWS brackets finally up

June 18, 2004 at 09:20 AM

The pairings and a convuleted text version of how the College World Series would go has been up probably since Monday, but the brackets are finally up too. It makes it a lot easier to see who plays who. Update: This is a post from the 2004 College World Series, though it looks like the same link to the brackets will work soon. Until then, here is a PDF version of the 2005 CWS bracket.... Continue reading

Our new apartment

June 15, 2004 at 09:39 AM

I don't think I've said anything about me and Christina's new apartment here in Dallas. It's really nice and fits us really well. Interior and exterior are both in excellent shape. The living room is MUCH bigger than the old one in San Marcos, which means I can get a bigger TV soon. :-) There's only one bad thing about it at all. Roaches. Yes, freaking roaches. Every now and then I'll see a tiny... Continue reading

First day of work

June 14, 2004 at 07:07 PM

Today was my first day of work. It was really long and stressful, I hope it gets better. I'm just nervous. I want to succeed. I'm too tired to write more. Maybe I will tomorrow.... Continue reading

Horns advance to Omaha

June 12, 2004 at 07:59 PM

Despite the fact that I had to watch the game at Texadelphia (stupid freaking cable company. Damn you Grande/Advantex!), the Longhorns whipped Vanderbilt for the second straight game to move on to the CWS. Texas has won all 5 of their NCAA Tourney games and rolled nicely into Omaha. Hopefully they can keep hitting the ball like they did this weekend. If they do, they'll be in good position to win national title number... Continue reading

Texas wins

June 12, 2004 at 07:41 AM

The NCAA Baseball Tournament's Super Regional is underway and the Longhorns are playing great. I was a little worried. They hit a little slide at the end of the regular season and in the Big 12 Tourney, but they cruised through the regionals in three games and beat Vanderbilt last night. It was a great game for the Horns. Offense started off early with 5 runs in the bottom of the second and gave... Continue reading
