Hows it going?



Been a while since a lot of us have talked on the forums. So I thought I would just start a thread so that we can catch up and chat.

Nothing specific, just what is going on, and anything new. Just an idle chat thread

Anyways, I know I have been crazy busy. I definitely plan to start posting more. I just don't post any more at work, and after being on the computer all day at work I often don't get on at night. But I hate to see the den get so slow (even though it is summer, and it always gets slow in summer).

So what's new with me....new job...new house....might have said all that already. But it makes life pretty crazy and just waiting for it all to kind of calm down.

Am anxious to build a new server. Looking at having about 5 1.5TB drives in it, and going to use a very sexy xeon processor (the new server might be just as powerful, if not more so, than my computer). But also going to try and build it a bit more green. The CPU does not use much power and I am hoping to have it so that I actually wont use my desktop for _too_ much, and be able to start shutting it down at night (and during the week). And just use the less power laptop for a terminal into the more powerful server. Ether way I am sure it is going to be sexy


cheers,

Hi Jent. Sounds like you are really enjoying your new job and the challenges that come with it. Im jealous you are a homeowner. Maybe someday when i grow up I can afford one too!

So whats new with me...New City...temporary internship. Los Angeles is a crazy place, but working for a big time movie studio has been so awesome. I'll have to come out and see how the new house is coming along once i move back aug 22nd.

I wanna see some pics of the house!! you should post some up of the yard. Whats the story on a new puppy? OKOK bye.

I have also disappeared since graduating. Being in front of a computer all day at work has got me burnt out on it and video games just don't seem to be appealing as before too. As an excuse to get out of a chair I have been rock climbing. Even though it rains almost everyday, I have been finding days to go out and climb.

I have moved into a townhome in fo co with a roommate to try and save money to pay off student loans. The second plus is that I have a six minute bike ride to work. My desktop is still in a box awaiting a purchase of a computer desk, but I just don't seem to find the motivation to get one. My desktop is in a desperate need of an upgrade anyways to play some video games. Starcraft 2 might convince me to do it.

Anyways, here are a couple of climbing pics to show what I have been up to.

Josh, where are you working? And when did you head out to Cali? I didn't know any of this was happening. Sounds cool though..

I have been flying like crazy. I'm on track to log about 100 hours of flight time in July. Its been fun and challenging. Lots of thunderstorms make flying a lot more interesting.

Nice to hear you all have "real" jobs. With "real" pay checks. =)

I'm still soldiering on our here in Ohio. Building this studio is taking forever. I'm hoping to god (if she's still up there) that we'll be done by January. In the mean time I've got a "paying" job at a live sound company called fortytwo inc. It's a cool little company. We have some sweet toys. Lots of digital consoles with motorized fader (the coolest things in the world. See below)



And I just got back from a 2 week long trip to Montana and the NorthWest tip of washington (and the US). There's a rain forest up there. Seriously. > 140in of rain annually. I'll post some pictures in a while.

Summer's gonna be gone soon. Take care everyone.
