Can't say that I'm a gadget freak. I am however a power tools freak, and I just bought a new compound miter saw.

Nothing much going on here, meetings all day. For some reason, it's been decided that Friday is meeting day here. Which really means that I'll get little work done. My wife has been dizzy off and on for the last few weeks, and finally had the appointment with the neurologist (2 and a half weeks to get in!). They think it's "benign positional vertigo". So, they're going to send her for an MRI to make sure, but then she'll begin physical therapy to recover from it. Kind of messed up. I feel bad for her, cause ever once in a while she'll just get dizzy.

Looking forward to the weekend, building some built in bookcases in our house, hopefully will be able to make some progress on them.

Yeah I'm a gadget freak but they're getting too expensive! I'm really behind as far as having the newest and coolest stuff. I have an iPod mini (now discontinued) and a Palm Tungsten E that is almost 2 years old.

A friend of mine recently got a Treo phone. I played around with the phone and I want to buy one but they are too steep for me right now!

Oh wow, I hope your wife is going to be ok.

Yeah, it's very expensite to stay on top of technology. I have the Treo 700w, it's very nice.

Well... I'm no gadget freak per se', but I do have 2 new technology items that I love... the first being my 360 that I just got back from repair... the second being my 32" LG LCD television that I got not too long ago.

Whats up with me? Well, I'm just planning on how I can get all of the games that I want that are coming out in March, without blowing my budget, lol. Didn't have to work today, it's always good to get a day off. I'm enjoying myself.

Other than that, what's up with you?

My favorite gadget right now is my stand alone DVD recorder.

Just happy it's Friday. I've becoming addicted to blogs. I read a ton every day, including everyone on here who has one, some are really good. I enjoy Clay's, Shawn's a lot. Giggas has a good blog too, check his out as well. I have got to the point, where I almost have too much to talk about and could post a blog to mine every hour...LOL I like reading what other's have on their mind, it's pretty cool.

Yeah, me too. I think she'll be fine. Hopefully the MRI will reveal that it's just this vertigo thing.

I guess I am a gadget freak too. If you haven't heard of woot before goto that website, it only sells 1 item a day and they usually have great gadgets
at descent prices.

I have been looking for a remote for awhile now so that I can use macros so I only have to push one button to power on 3 or 4 things but man are those expensive. I thought about the Harmony 360 remote but that is a lot of money.

QOTD: nope, never been

I went to see the PINK PANTHER last night. Was it worth all the delays and such? I think so. Martin's portrayal of Closeau is obviously a bit different then Sellers'. Martin's Closeau is a bit smarter then Sellers'. Sellers would be bumbling all around and just by sheer accident he solves the case. In this flick Martin seems to know EXACTLY what he's doing, abelt doing it rather poorly.

There are some great jokes in the movie tho. I put it below Sellers' PP films but rank it higher then the three knockoffs since Sellers' death. I really liked the accent coach scene. That scene seems like an homage to Sellers as that was the kind of thing Sellers did wonders with.

Overall i'd rate the movie an 8 but if comparing it to the other PP films I give it a 6.

After spending 3 days trying to get a used ipod from ebay to work, I decided to give it up and send it back to the guy. Decided to pick up a new video ipod instead. Got it at a Best Buy that just opened today right near me. It works perfectly and I like it so far. Haven't tried any videos yet, but I will tonight.

Thanks for the plug, EG.

Anyway, I need to start writing more regularly, but I have no idea what to do.

Ah well, whatever. Just lost connection in a great fight against Z... I don't know what happened. It was lagging a bit at times. He probably would have gotten the KO or a decision. He was pummeling me, and I was definitely out on my feet.
