Another day

I have to remind myself it just another day. Just a quick rant. Why do people have tendencies to jury rig things. Why can't they be done correct the first time. I just don't understand.

Taking it into consideration

Well here's a question for myself...

How much do I want to divulge here. What's to personal to be public...
The Weblog is a public creature. I know where I would draw the line but the it kind of ruins some of the purpose here. I guess I could make a suggestion to the authors of this app to add a private thought box to the entry. Or I could add it to the app myself and see how it works. I've considered creating my own blogging software, but with all the other projects going on, I don't think I want to get involved just yet. I could bang out a real generic one in a couple of days, but why bother when I can use this until I'm ready to make a decision. This seems to be decent. There are a couple of thing I would definately change but other than that... I'm not ready to reinvent/improve the wheel just yet...

The Yard

Well the weekend is now over. We did some major yard work today. Pulled the fence down, moved some ground stones. Alot of work. I'm not to sure I like it yet. I kind of envisioned it a little different. Maybe I'm just used to it the other way. We shall see I guess.
I don't think I mentioned this in here yet but we painted Grandma's bedroom during the week. She went to Uncle Marty's for the wek so we decided to paint her bedroom. I think it looks pretty good. Well the point is, she's supposed to be coming home tommorow and I'm looking forward to her response.
Another weekend complete.

It's Alive...

Thank F'ing god... I was able to resurrect my damn computer.
I was really starting to get worried. I am really not in the mood for a reinstall. Not to mention I was not as carefull as I should have been to keep all data off my WINNT drive. It would have been a nightmare to get it back to it's current state.

I had tried every thing. Finally I replaced some files from the recovery proc.

Thats when I got this message

The procedure entry point EqualDomainSid could not be located in the dynamic link library ADVAPI32.dll.

For future reference. If you ever get this error message here is the solution http://www.jsiinc.com/subm/tip6100/rh6116.htm

Thank god for the internet... Resource at your fingertips...

Damn Computer

This damn gateway at work is a pain in my ass. Now it just will not comlete a boot up. It's always on the brink of failure. I know it's not exactly the model of stability. I mean I'm constantly installing and removing software from it. Not to mention all the software I write and test on it. But still it drives me nuts.
Now here I am back to using my old faithful 233 until I figure out what the hell to do with the other one. I'm hoping a reinstall is not in the works. We shall see. It's trying to recover now.

more config...

I have yet the opportunity to play with style sheets so the weblog looks like crap at the moment. I can't beleive everything I do requires another knowledge. I started out as a simple basic programmer and look at me now.

REXX, JCL, MVBasic, Visual Basic, HTML, Javascript, Perl, PHP. and now cascading style sheets. Combine this with all the OS and general knowledge and I'm a walking computer. It's not that I'm not interested, I am. I just don't know where to pull the time from anymore. Talk about expanding your knowledge.
I know sooner or later C, RPG will be on my list too.

I'm hoping this blog will eventually evolve into something used. I did'nt spend that much time to set it up but I still hate wasting my time. I also hope that Sharon decides to use hers as well. But I guess this all will be scene in time.

Well enough for this post. I've got some work to get done.

Well here we go. This is the first post on my blog. I'm not sure as to what you're going to see here but time will reveal that. So far my interest in this thing is to play with it.
