Julie’s graduation and house wiring

I had a pretty busy and backbreaking couple of weeks. May 11 was Julie’s graduation from law school, we had company from May 11-14, then we were in Pace from May 14-20 so that I could wire the house. Julie’s graduation I took the Friday off. Julie’s mom and step-father flew in and we picked […]

My outdoor wifi plan was a bad idea

For anyone who has been keeping up with the technical aspects of the Home Project, you may have noticed that I am building outdoor wifi, in addition to my indoor wifi and CAT6 Ethernet network. My plan was to place a wireless router inside my Workshop (a detached building connected to the house), connect it […]

End of Law School Updates

It has been a while since I last wrote an entry, as usual. I’ve started a couple entries and not finished them. Julie has finished her last term of law school as of last week. She seems to have taken a temporary interest in knitting and cross-stitching. I say temporary because she’ll be starting Barbri […]

Spring Break 2012

I was in Pace, FL from Friday night 3/2 until Sunday morning 3/11 for Julie’s spring break. I was having second thoughts about going, but we ended up going anyway.

It all seems very similar to the Bush vs. Kerry race to me. Romney even looks like Kerry in a strange way. Well, anyway, if […]

Dealing with surveillent

One of the things I wanted in the new house was an intercom system. My thought was that I would have one intercom at the front door, one all the way in the outdoor office, one in the room we’d later use for a nursery (to be used as a baby monitor), and others in […]

Why wire a network?

If you’ve taken a look at my home-project page, you’ll notice that much of what I have up has to do with the network. My mom actually asked me a question early on. She asked me (probably not in her exact words), why wire a network when you could just use wireless? In my research […]

When law school is over

About a month or so ago, I started really thinking about what is going to happen once Julie finishes law school and finishes the Florida bar process. That all should be finished sometime in August 2012. My lease at my current apartment in Gainesville goes up about the same time. First of all, the job […]
