nice motorcycle ride - 28 Aug 2001

I just went out for a ride on my CBR. I haven’t ridden it for a few weeks and this morning I got another 30 day permit from the DMV so I’m legal. It started up on the first try and ran perfectly. I was quite pleased. I also gave my girlfriend a ride and […]

back to Provo - 22 Aug 2001

I picked up a good friend of mine at the airport and it was nice to see them again. Even though it hasn’t really been that long since we’ve seen each other, it seems like a long time. It’s always nice to be reunited with friends.

beat Oni - 15 Aug 2001

I have been playing a game called Oni for over a month and I beat it last night. The ending was kind of disappointing because it wasn’t really that hard at all so I didn’t get a big feeling of accomplishment. It was a fun game though and now that I’ve beaten it I can […]

new mouse - 08 Aug 2001

I picked up my new optical mouse and it’s pretty cool. You don’t even have to have a mouse pad for it to work and I’ll never have to clean out the mouse wheels again. I just have to get used to the different sensitivity while playing Oni and Unreal Tournament :)

pay it forward - 03 Aug 2001

I just saw the movie Pay it Forward and it was pretty good. It would have been a lot nicer if the story had been true instead of being based on a novel. Knowing that something actually happened of that nature would have a greater impact on me. The fact that it was based on […]

back from the trip - 01 Aug 2001

I just got back tonight from a great trip. I was in San Diego for the O’Reilly Open Source conference and then went to my girlfriend’s house to meet the family and spend time with her. I had a lot of fun and was very reluctant to come back to Utah since it was so […]
