The 12-Drive RAID Storage Box


In addition to the 3 (or 4, or 5) rather definite big ticket items in my purchase plans....

  1. New prescription eyewear (x2)
  2. Blackberry 8703e
  3. A suitable all season bicycle
  4. this home that I'm living in...
  5. a Mac Mini

There's now a pile of other stuff that I'm thinking that I want to get. The latest is this 12-Drive RAID box. Might just be in the price range that I can rationally accept. Sure its not a true 12 drive array, but at least it is step in the 'right' direction.

Sprint Blackberry 8703e


Just as I was thinking that I would have to give in and go with the 7130e, word has come out that the 8703e will be available from Sprint.

Now the question is should I wait until my birthday to get it or not &#59;D

Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest


I rated this movie 4 stars.


While I saw this for $1 at the K-State Student Union, at least it was some what better in that it had been letter-boxed for standard TV viewing.

Bleed Purple


Now, the next blood drive will be October 3-6th at KSU.

October 3-5 @ 10:30-16:30 in the Union, 2nd Floor or 15:00-20:00 in Putnam Hall. And, October 6th @ 08:30-14:30 in the Union, 2nd Floor.

Such a wide range in dates....wonder which date and time will I choose to give blood.

Unlocked Linksys PAP2

Deciding that I would give up on my D-Link DPH-540 for the time being and wanting to use my BroadVoice 'home' number as my 'home' number. I went onto eBay looking for an affordable ATA that I could transfer my BYOD service to.

Previously, I contemplated getting another locked service or waiting to cancel one of my current services and seeting about getting that adapter unlocked.

But, I ended up winning the bid for an unlocked Linksys PAP2. It arrived around the time of my high school reunion, so I wasn't able to pick it up until after my return. But, I quickly set off to get it going. Also among the spoils to pick up from the UPS Store, were the Uniden cordless phones to make my 'home' number available around my home.

Setting both up was pretty straight forward. A little tedious reprogramming numbers into the Uniden handset....but so far no issues there, though I have yet to make anything more than test calls.

The PAP2 was also pretty first I tried to guess how to fill in the blanks....but then it occurred to me that I was being silly, and I went onto Google to get the procedure. Again, only a few test calls so far...... But, I think all will be good. :wave:

The next blood drive will be on September 19th....


Except, that I don't feel like making the trip back to Dublin, Ohio just to give blood there.

Looks the different regions don't share data....and it isn't just a mistake that my lifetime count is back to '1' again (for the second time)....

Oh well, one of the reasons that attracted me to this job...was the prospect of it being easier to donate blood on a regular basis.

Looking for another Manhattan, KS VoIP Provider


I'm debating whether to get another account with Broadvoice or go with a different VoIP provider for a second VoIP line at home.

The problem is trying to track down the multitude of VoIP providers and figure out which ones offer Manhattan, KS local numbers.

That's when I came across, it attempts to filter the many providers it knows about down areacode initially. But drilling in further it can filter down to city.

And, then there are lots of options on the kinds of features you want from them. Like BYOD. Which I haven't decided on...though it becomes a question on whether I want my BroadVoice number to be my 'home' number or 'wifi' number.

Though one of the services claims to do Fax to Email. 88| But, not sure I really need such a service. I haven't set up my fax machine since the move (no where to put it...connect it...) and haven't really been missing it. |-|

But, if I go with that company...then it should probably be my 'home' which case it doesn't really matter if it is BYOD or not. Except for the lower activation cost.

Though it'll be the difference of using an adapter that was locked to a different provider, which is now unlocked (but could relock itself should it go through a factory reset)...or to get the *same* adapter locked to the new provider.

Since both offer the variety of simulring/call-forwarding isn't like I could miss a call by having given out the wrong number.

And, there's always the NetZero voicemail account to resolve the issue of voicemail should handle my messages... &#59;)

I suppose it might be safe to say that I've pretty much decided which provider will be my other number....I just haven't decided which will be which....

The main thing is that I've already been giving out my Broadvoice number as my new 'home' number. So, maybe I guess that also has answered that question....or not. :??:

ThinkGeek :: Blue Laser Pointer


Oooh...I want one of these...even though the prevalance of bright blue LEDs on just about everything new these days has been kind of annoying.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
