To buy or not to buy

Well there you have it. If I get this I'll be about 100 gigs over a 1 terabyte of storage. What do I need all this for you ask? Nevermind. I just hooked up the new pc to the tv last night and it's working awesome. Nothing like running your Geforce 6800 gt as a TV card LOL. Anyway, it's at times like these where I have my finger hovering over the "buy" button, that I hear my wifes voice in my head. Screaming....and screaming.....and screaming. I'm taking my finger off the button. Why? Because I have to buy Christmas presents. And Christmas is not about me.....yet. That will come later after my plan to usurp "Santa Clause" as father Christmas unfolds. Anyway, here's hoping some of you out there can use this. It really is a spectacular deal. Mainly because it's a SATA drive.

  1. Upon further review, do not buy these 500gb drives yet. Apparently they're not actually making the drive space larger, all their doing is making the data spirals loop closer together on the disk surface. Bad idea. While it will improve latency and seek times (supposedly) it's an unreliable way to fit more data into the same, if not less, space.

Go ahead and comment. Be as harsh as you like. My self esteem is usually much too high.

Is it time for an Italian American President?

Rudy Giuliani has thrown his hat in the ring for the 2008 Presidential race. For those of you who don't know, Mr. Giuliani was one of the driving forces behind the gangland prosecutions of the 5 New York Mafia families. His skillful maneuvering of the revolutionary RICO statutes helped break the Italian Mafia's strangle-hold on New York and surrounding area's. I will wholeheartedly support Rudy Giuliani as President and I'll tell you why.

With the tragedy of 9/11 came a shift in focus from the drug war and fighting organized crime, to "Homeland Security." Ironicaly, along with this shift in focus, came a relaxation of the former hard nosed pursuance of drugs and crime. No longer did the Organized Crime Task Force receive priority funding and adequate staffing. They are back to the dark ages of the 1960's in terms of quality enforcement officials.

Once again, drugs and organized crime threaten our nation from within. The Russian, Albanian, Dominican…

This is important

I'm learning a lot of things and having a lot of things thrown at me as I start my own business.  I thought I would write about the most important lesson I've learned so far.

You cannot succeed, truly succeed, in life/business whatever, without the support of your wife.  If you're spending all your waking time trying to make a business work and your wife isn't 100% behind you, you're headed for failure.  Plain and simple.

Now, I'm writing this from the perspective of a human male, with a wife, but I'm sure the operation is the same if reversed.  Ladies, if you're considering a field to buy it, and your husband isn't behind the purchase with you, chances are that purchase is going to create some strife.

What I'm talking about here seems pretty common sense.  However, I think we assume it's common sense and don't think about it as much as we should.

If I am going to commit to making a business successful and profitable, I've got to h…

Thankswhat?

Okay internet friends, I'm sure most of you know by now that thanksgiving holiday is nearly upon us. Like a beast from the depths it rises up, consuming the wooden ships of our pocketbooks. Like the great Krakken, it's tentacles of turkey en-wrap my innards with their tasty goodness. The great white mash potato shark eagerly gulps down the last remaining survivors of my will power. I am once again looking forward to being nearly crushed under my own massive weight after another feeding frenzy.

It's at this point that I'd like to make the announcment that I am starting a new holiday to compete with this yearly juggernaut of gravy and meat. I am calling it "Thankstaking." If you read that quickly it looks kind of like thanks stalking, which we'll get to later. I'm tired of the endless parade of people sucking up to each other, thanking each other for each menial deed done over the course of the year. If there's one thing I hate, it's a br…
