Catching up with the world

Well, I guess it's about time that I get things back up to date. I've been away from the whole updating-the-site thing for a while, but I've been busy with real life and other things. Some big news to date:

- Emily and I are expecting, and he's due November 14th.
- I'm still at Appriss, happily plugging away at the various and sundry booking and records systems throughout Texas.
- Emily's taken a job at Kentuckiana Cancer Institute.
- My sister Laura is engaged
- Laura's moved to Indianapolis with Steven

I think that's about it. Hopefully I'll be putting some of my mindless drivel up here more often.

My wife says I'm retarded

She's probably right :)

Crappy Media

[12:08] Brent Selch: stupid courier-journal prints "Turin" instead of "Torino"
[12:09] Brent Selch: it's fucking "Torino" fucknuts
[12:09] Alex Morse: I've seen that a bunch of places.
[12:09] Alex Morse: there's a lot less quality control in the media nowadays
[12:09] Brent Selch: and more suck
[12:09] Alex Morse: yes, much more suck

Phrase of the day

(12:33:05) macagain: Gee, haven't heard you say anything about the iPod nano......
(12:33:25) Brent Selch (AIM): I am pretending it doesn't exist so I don't go and buy it :)
(12:33:31) Brent Selch (AIM): *very* nice
(12:33:43) Brent Selch (AIM): best flash based player out there
(12:34:33) Brent Selch (AIM): the only negative I've heard is that it is *only* USB2 - no Firewire
(12:35:08) macagain: Have you checked out the iLounge.com -- they've got a cool PDF that is sort of "everything about iPods...."
(12:35:34) macagain: USB2 is as fast as FW, though, right?
(12:35:43) Brent Selch (AIM): faster, actually
(12:35:46) Brent Selch (AIM): for a single device
(12:35:56) Brent Selch (AIM): FW handles multiple devices better though
(12:36:14) Brent Selch (AIM): at least for high-throughput devices, such as DV cams, hard drives ,etc...
(12:36:30) macagain: don't get me started on FW hard drives....
(12:37:13) Brent Selch (AIM): true - you haven't had much luck, have you?
(12:37:42) macagain: I'm still a loyal apostle, but that whole LaCie and G4 thing really frosted my banana.
(12:37:55) Brent Selch (AIM): that's such a great expression :)

Conspiracy Theory

I ran across the "Snape is Innocent" T-shirt the other day, and while talking to my co-worker Terry, he mentioned his theory about the ending of the 6th Harry Potter book - He thinks it might be plausible that Dumbledore created a horcrux himself - Fawkes. He even supported it by some interesting facts - Whenever Harry needed help from Dumbledore, Fawkes shows up. Also, at the end of the 6th book, Fawkes is mentioned as flying off after Dumbledore dies. Third, if you were going to pick an object to make into a horcrux, why not use an immortal being like a phoenix?
