Goings on and the future of the website

I don’t think I have really blogged much this year, so I guess I have a bit to catch up on. Last year, I had decided to go back to school to study statistics. I took a couple courses at the community college in Gainesville, just a couple courses I didn’t take as an undergrad. […]

Setting up free VoIP – An alternative to Microsoft Skype

Motivation I am a long time Skype user, and not just the free service, but I also have had a yearly subscription and SkypeIn number for a couple years now. However, after major changes in Skype, I am been on a hunt for a usable alternative to Skype. Here are the motivations for seeking an […]

First Real 2011 Post

School I guess this is the first real post of the year. So far, things have pretty much gone how I should have expected. I started my first term at CSU’s distance masters program in statistics. The program was not what they advertised it to be. They made themselves out to be very helpful and […]

How to Setup a Squeezebox Server to Listen to RadioIO and Other Sources

I will expand this document as needed. Why should I care? I imagine most users won’t see any need to setting up a Squeezebox Server, but here are some advantages you’ll get: Connect Squeezebox Server to a stream, then connect your devices/computers to your Squeezebox Server to listen.

Colorado State University: Distance Statistics MS

Will explain more later. Hello Michelle, I already withdrew, so I did not respond through ramct. I saw no point in continuing. I almost withdrew before the test. How much time and study I put into this course (~30 hrs/wk) seemed to have marginal effect on my grade. I may have mentioned that I already […]

I am angry with Netflix, but I seem to have trouble conveying why I am to people who ask. I am not sure if it is because I am not explaining it well, or if the people I am explaining to just don’t get it. I will spell out why I am angry with Netflix […]

All the fruit!

I’ve been asked a few times now, “What’s up with all the fruit?” I have been using seemingly random pictures of fruit for profile pictures on various social networking sites. This is because I do not want to put my pictures on those sites (they can be found on this website). At first, I only […]

So many purchases

It has been pretty rough so far. In my last email, I explain the issue I was having with my Optiplex 745, named PERSEUS. It is otherwise a great computer, so I am going to give it to Brother and Stephanie as a gift. Their computer is about 9 years old, and I am sure […]

I hate the Optiplex 745

A while back, I purchased a Dell Optiplex 745, and I guess I just needed another reminder of why I hate Dell. I purchased this compute to serve as a cheep home-theater PC. It came with Windows XP Pro, which is good, because I hate that Windows 7 crap. I threw in a Geforce 8600gs […]

Plan… wait… what letter was I on?

Found a School I didn’t think it was going to happen, but I finally found a graduate school to start in January. I am going to be working on the Distance Masters Degree in Statistics at Colorado State University. Actually, I have not been formally accepted to the masters program yet. They said it was […]
