New web host!

I just moved my site to lunarpages.com, heard it's a pretty good host with good customer service. It's also a little cheaper and provides more space and bandwidth. So far so good, only required minor changes to move my site over. The only thing I'll miss is SSH access to my site, but I'll get over it.

Update: While I was at it, I upgraded the news and photo gallery scripts too.

Back from a week at Vail, Colorado!

Whoa, that was a lot of fun. I got a chance to do a lot of different things. We went snowshoeing, snowmobiling, went to Denver, Rocky Mountain National Park, and last but not least snowboarded at Vail. Snow is definitely fun. And the weather can't be beat, much warmer than NYC during the same week. Here are some photos from the trip, and video (xvid or wmv) of me busting my ass on a snowmobile.

Archos Gmini 400!

I just got a new toy, the Archos Gmini 400 MP3, Video, Photo viewer, and gaming device. It's about the same size as an iPod, but does so much more!

I had another Archos Personal Video Player before, a Jukebox Multimedia 20 (JMB20). The JBM20 was good, but it was a brick and didn't have enough juice to play high resolution videos. The JBM20's batteries really sucked, it started dying after about 6 months of use, hope its better with the Gmini 400. If the Gmini turns out bad, it may very well be the last Archos device I'll ever buy. This isn't baseball, they only get two strikes, especially on these expensive devices.

But so far so good with the Gmini 400, I love this thing! There are some problems with videos, lots of videos I had uses VBR MP3 for audio which causes a lag on the Gmini, but luckly it can be fixed quickly with VirtualDub. Others have to be re-encoded completely, but can't expect much from a tiny hand held device. The only complain I have is with the gaming platform they picked. Mophun is good, but there are just no free games. They should have went with a Java platform.

Back from Canadian Adventure!

I'm back from my two week Canadian camping adventure. It's been a fun two weeks, the weeks went by so quickly. But it's back to work on Monday. Will post photos as soon as I pick out some good ones (out of the 500+ that I've taken).

AOL Add-on Source Code

It's been a while since I worked on any of my AOL Add-ons, the last one was IMView 3.0 Beta and that was a while ago. That was the last time I touched VB, in fact, I don't even have it installed anymore. I just haven't been in a programming mood.

Now, the question is, does anyone want the source code to some of these programs? Keep in mind that I'm not a "real" programmer, I just wrote it because I was in a mood. It's all probably poorly written undocumented spaghetti code that will make some people want to cry.

I won't be releasing the source to all my AOL Add-ons, just some old ones. E-mail me and let me know what you think.

Nature Trail

I went on a nature trail across the street from this park near me and took some pictures.  Most turned out bad, but a few turned out pretty good.  Some of them look like paintings when it's scaled down.  Check it out.

Canadian Pioneer

This May 30th I'll be going on an adventure with Trek America on their Canadian Pioneer.  It'll be two weeks of traveling from the US to Canada and back.  And did I mention we'll be camping for those two weeks?  Yep, that's right, two weeks of camping.  And yes, I have no clue what I'm getting myself into.  But at least it sounds fun.

I'll also miss two full weeks of anime, so there will be tons of catching up when I get back.  Hopefully I can get a friend to do some downloading for me when I'm away.  And does anyone know where I can get enough batteries to last me two weeks?
