Flickr

January 31, 2007

BTW, I now have a Flickr account (linkzor).  I’ve spent the last couple nights uploading photos.

Some of my photos are only viewable by Family and Friends (such as church youth activities).  If you want to see these, you’ll need to get a Flickr account (free) and tell me to add you to my Friends list. (more…)

Fixed

January 22, 2007

I attempted a WordPress update from 2.x to 2.0.7 a while ago, but something went wrong. That’s why I’ve been silent for so long. I had some free time tonight, so I sat down to troubleshoot the problem and just happened to check the WordPress site and see that 2.1 had been released 7 hours prior.

So, I now have a fixed 2.1 WordPress blog. Awesome!

New Camera

January 13, 2007

Today, my new camera arrived… I bought a Canon Digital Rebel XTi, with battery grip. And I got a 17-85mm EF-S Image Stabilization lense with hood. And a UV filter and a Polarized filter.

As I opened all my new toys, it felt like Christmas. 😀

PLNU vs NASSCO

January 4, 2007

Today, I’ve worked at PLNU as long as I did at NASSCO: 17 months and 9 days. And, I’ve decided to reflect on things.

I’m happy to report that:

  • While at PLNU, I have not fallen through any holes in the floor, nor have I burnt any of my clothes.
  • I don’t get the cardio workout I did at NASSCO, but I don’t get heat exhaustion either.
  • The view from my Mission Valley office isn’t as scenic as the view from the weather decks, but I don’t have to don a hard-hat everywhere I go.
  • The office air-conditioner may break every once in a while, but there are no gas leaks and I have no need for a respirator.
  • I no longer get off because of rain, but I didn’t get paid for those days, either.
  • I don’t have to explain to people what a “university” is, like I did for “shipyard”.
  • I carry around a laptop and business cards, rather than heavy tool bags and blueprints.
  • And I no longer use tools that can hurt me.
  • My boss wears a tie, not a gold hat.

Old writtings

January 2, 2007

I dug up a file folder that had some stuff I wrote back high school. I thought I’d share some.

Everything that was dated, was dated 1998. I turned 17 that summer. (more…)
