Oh look. A random post! 

I’m aware I’m more or less talking to myself here, but fuck it. 

Since my last post things have changed a fair bit. I’ve gone from being homeless to living in a rundown trailer to living in a decent apartment. I’ve left one job and started a new one. I blew the motor in the Jeep that I was living in while I was homeless and got a new car. Things are looking much better overall. 

As long as I don’t get complacent, I think things will continue to improve. 

From the Mind of an HPD Officer.

“I am a cop. 

Today I woke up to three text messages telling me about 5 dead police officers in Dallas. I got my uniform on, made my coffee, and went out the door. Like every other day. I drove to the station, and I answered “here” when my name was called in roll call. I loaded my car with gear and I drove to my patrol beat to do my job. 

From the second I woke up I mourned the death of my brothers in Dallas, but I do my job like every other day. Though the event in Dallas is in my mind, I am not scared, but I am diligent. I am not alone, either. I have nearly two million brothers and sisters that will come running when they hear my voice on the radio needing help, and I the same for them. 

Continuing through the horrendous attack on Dallas police is not borne of bravado, nor of pride, nor of anger. Continuing to go to work is because of a deep seated honor all police feel. We do this job because of love, because of understanding, because of wanting to deliver a service to the world as a whole. This job is not done out of spite, out of feeling small, out of racism, nor is it done to prove a point. 

We will all continue to wake up each day, put on our uniform, and go out the door. We will do our job. We will protect the people that speak ill of us. We will answer the call, and we will fight for each inch of righteousness in this world.” ~Anonymous

But we’re speaking Japanese!

Stumbled across this video and can’t help but share it. XD

The PC Gamers Creed


This is my computer. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My computer is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
Without me, my computer is useless. Without my computer, I am useless. I must click my mouse true. I must click faster than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will…
My computer and I know that what counts in gaming is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit…
My computer is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its keyboard and its mouse. I will keep my computer clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will…
Before God, I swear this creed. My computer and I are the defenders of my team. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life.
So be it, until victory is mine and there is no enemy, but peace!

$$$/0=Oh crap…

It really sucks when you check your account and see plenty of money, go out for a night of fun,  then check it a couple days later to see a bunch of stuff has suddenly posted all at once and you are now totally broke.

Just maybe I’ve learned my lesson this time… But probably not.

Solder and wire and circuits. Oh my!

I spent today working on a little project to add an Aux input to my Jeep’s stereo. I think I had lackluster results.  I never got around to splicing the stereo wiring and adding in the input jack thanks to the weather.  But for what little bit I did do,  I managed to slice, burn and electrocute myself.  I spent the rest of the time gaming with my Nephew.  So all things considered, it was a wonderful day!
