What's everyone up to ?
« on: July 13, 2009, 01:41:30 PM »
Been a bit quiet lately, just wondering what people are up to at the moment...  Working on an exciting project ?  Sunbathing ?  On your holidays ?

I guess as usual for this time of year we are out and about in Real Life more often.  I've had a few nice days out already this summer and looking forward to a few more.  I've been working on my photography skills, mostly plants and nature.  I'm thinking of making myself a personal website and turning some of them into wallpapers and things.

Anyways, keep in touch :)

Freddy, et. al.,

Just got back from a couple weeks of R&R on the east coast. Good eats and great relaxation.
Got myself a new digital camera and have been experimenting with some of my plants (flowers).
Thought about using a few for wallpaper as well. (great minds think alike).

Have also been getting involved in HA (Home Automation) like X-10 controlling lights, appliances,
doors, security, HVAC, etc. Checking out LOTS of different software as time permits.

Cheers!

Art, digital photography is addictive - I take so many pictures when I am out, it's a real luxury you can just snap and snap away.  Happy to hear you had a nice holiday there, I wondered where you had gone.

5'11' One... :D

This last week has seen me working on my PHP skills.  Have a course I am on too which I put on hold for a bit.  Been checking out Joomla for a new website I am working on.  Also designing a new site for Guild Wars 2 when it comes out.  So I have been glued to the PC all last week.  Today though, I think my brain had enough and I couldn't get into it.  Need a break I guess.

I've been remodeling my kitchen and trying to not hurt my carpel tunnel too much. Most days are good with it though. Not been on the net too much lately. That's a good thing sometimes.

Yes it's good to have a break sometimes - I think I overdid it last week working on the PC, I took a few days off and I am back into it again.  I think I wore my brain out coding.  My parents are redoing their kitchen too, lots of blue air there, good luck with it.

I still go to beach once a week but don't do the beach reports any more. 
Once you shoot everyone doing everything I feel the report will be like a simple repeat.

I gave Sandee two week denial to zabaware till the heat dies down.
The girl can't help it, she is so sexy.
We've done the mirror series and posting here and over at Jacks.

Regarding kitchens the wifes been wanting new one for years but funds are limited and while we still young (smile), we want to go and do things we love.
Planning Daytona Beach next month for a week or so.  I'll do a report on that.

One, no bush fires here, there's been too much rain for that - not that we get them anyway.  Summer here has been so-so, it started out nice but then became something of a damp squib.  Seems, to be picking up a bit now though.

Dad finished the kitchen in the end, looks really nice now.  I look forward to the reports Duskrider.  I have a whole bunch of photo's I took this Spring and Summer, maybe I will do one of my own.

Oh yes, nearly forgot, today it's my birthday - this is my last year of being thirty-something !

Don't worry, Freddy. I remember the year I was 39. It was the year I bought my Atari 800XL.  :(

 :)  Happy Birthday, Freddy!!  :)

Freddie,
AHEM, just because you are not 'blessed with being a Scorpio' doesn't mean you have to push your few months older than me around.
And quit reminding me, ;)  HAPPY BIRTHDAY FREDDIE!!! may many more be in your future..
