This is a test from Contribute 4

Well, the title pretty much says it all. Work is playing with using Adobe Contribute 4 and I wanted to check out how the blogging functionality works. It throws some weird initial scripting errors, most likely caused by my k2 "theme" but I’m able to build and select categories, give it a title, tags, and use fancy html tags. That’s about it I guess… If you’re reading it, then the publishing functionality works in WordPress 2.1

This is where I yet again talk about how I’m going to blog more often.

I have been busy, or not so busy… wait, a better way to put it would be that I haven’t been very inspired to blog. That’s not right either… more like, I’ve been wanting to put too much on my blog, but haven’t had the time to think it out, so I’ve just been putting it off again and again…

Well how about this… I’ll do a bulleted list of things I should cover in detail as the time arises… ok.

  • Started a new band. It is called Robothouse: LTD. Bobby, Owen, & Owen are in it. it is fun, but we worry too much about being old dudes. There are 3 bass players. Somebody awesome is possibly interested in being a producer. I like the fact that there are other people who would like to invest their efforts in Flagstaff’s music.
  • I started a new job. I now work over at Distance Learning @ NAU. It’s pretty cool. I’m a “Support Systems Analyst” and I do PC support for faculty and distance labs. I’m happy to be working @ NAU again since most of the nerds I went to school with that stayed in Flagstaff work here. The bennies are awesome, the pay is better, and it’s way more chill than CCC was. I’m also working on helping better develop the multimedia streaming capabilities of the university. Fun work!
  • Lemond Poprad... not mine tho!I broke down and finally bought a bike. It’s a Lemond Poprad. It’s way overkill for just getting into cyclocross, but hey, when am I not overkill when it comes to gear? This reminds me, I should take pictures of the bike. That’ll happen soon enough.
  • Work just got me a MacBook Pro. It is pretty badass. It makes me wanna get one for my personal use.

Ok, that’s enough for now. I’ll type more when I’m not slacking off from work.

Woah, I don’t update as much as I say I will

Well, I’ve been busy.

With a number of things.

The robothouse.org website is back up and running. All it needs is some loving content from some local folks. I’m wondering when that’s gonna start happening! People’s interests have been peaked tho.

I have been SERIOUSLY enjoying playing music with Phil lately. I need to take Desi and him out for dinner sometime. That would be a most excellent way to show my apprecation. The band is called Sister Pants and it’s been really healthy for me to play in. I’m starting to learn how to sing while playing guitar and even dabble on the keyboards. I’m guessing we have hour first show on May 6th. We’re all about creating a nice atmosphere when we play music.

There is also talk of a super secret band between Mr Robert E Carlson and myself. It’s secret, so more on that never.
Work has been ok lately. There’s talk of ogranization-wide raises and movemeny of myself into the IT department, which includes a title change, etc. After the past year’s worth of events and letdowns, I’m definitely not going to be holding my breath.

Also, I like going to the gym, but never get time to do it anymore. Ack!

There, now you have an idea of what I’ve been up to lately without even having to talk to me!

Shouldn’t I be updating my blog?

So the past 4 days I went to (not so) sunny Pasadena Ca. for a “TechEd” Conference.

It was fun. I went with Johofonow, my co worker. We had our own hotel rooms. I ate alot of sushi. I had tepenaki dinner with Matthew Lillard and his family. One rad part was that a keynote speaker was David Cavallo, who not only leads the One Laptop Per Child
program, but also looks and talks like a straight mix between David Duchovny and Woody Allen
. The dude was very inspirational.
I think a 40-something teacher hit on me a little bit at one point. Weird. Also, I am happy to have gotten to hang with Jason… finally! We bro-ed down and drank heavily with his fellow bro. I also bought some jeans. The end!
