God Bless Solid State

AWESOME!!! The pictures of the which I thought were lost forever along with my laptop turned up on one of my spare SD cards that I had stored away. I was so happy to find them, I'm freakin' ecstatic. The lesson that I learned from this is to buy more SD cards, the larger the better and just put stuff on them never delete them. When I run out of space, I can just run out and buy more SD. I figure its much better for backup purposes to use something solid state than a hard drive or raid array.

I don't know for some reason I find this the act of leaving stuff on SD more therapeutic than just backing up to a real disk.

I Just Can't Catch A Break

Posting from my phone. Just got back to my car. Out of the 100 cars on the block someone decided to pick mine to break into and steal my laptop, TomTom and police badge. The laptop was going to be replaced soon anyway, and it sucks about the very expensive TomTom, but when my friend found out his family badge was stolen he flipped his lid. I'm in a really bad situation.

At this point I really need to re-evaluate my life. Just when I started to get some semblance of normalcy back, this hits me. Needless to say I'm in very very very low spirits right now. I'm seriously considering dropping off the radar for a long while and trying to make sense of things.

Run the Presses

I think after all the awesome work we have done, we should be working equally as hard to make sure our good news makes the press.

So, Digg it.
