Putting out fires…

Wednesday, May 26th, 2004

TXT:: Had another one of those dire emergency days today. Around noontime, I heard the fire alarms ring out, and I went out to see what the excitement was all about, and saw a smoke bellowing from our property down the hill. A grass fire ignited along the freeway and the flames were working their […]

The week of hell is over…

Monday, May 3rd, 2004

(another one of those weeks). It started off with my 12 year old cat passing on. He was in bad shape and ended up passing away in the night. It’s funny because I go to a lot of human funerals and do not grieve much, but I really mourned the loss of this cat. Anyhoo… […]

TXT:: I finally upgraded my CD Burner and Software… My old Philips 2x has been replaced with the Que!Fire 12x firewire burner and Roxio Toast 5. I can’t beleive how i managed to survive all those 35 minute burns with the 2x. One really nice aspect of Toast 5 is the ability to burn in […]

Back-up Time

Friday, March 24th, 2000

MP3:: I set up an MP3.com radio station which plays selections from the various projects I’ve worked on over the past decade. Check out Peff - The Definitive Playlist . It’s strange to look at this list of songs because they vary from one end of the musical spectrum to the other. I’m starting to […]

Windows/DOS to MacOS 8 Conversion Project

Monday, March 13th, 2000

TXT:: PC to Mac Conversion Project is almost complete! I finished up the printer formatting for that damn database. It’s nice now since there are pop up menus for repetitive tasks (unlike the DOS version) and the Powerprint USB adapter working like a charm. I picked up a little USB hub and will be adding […]
