Socially BookMark Us!

I realize that most people read this blog and any other articles on this site via my personal Facebook page. I am completely fine with this as I realize that going to an individuals actual website is very 1990’s. I would however like to point out that if you like the things I post, whether it be comics blogs or videos, you can always just click on the title on facebook and be brought to my site. Why would you want to do this?

There are actually a few reasons. One you will be supporting my decision to have a personal website in an age of facebook-everything. Two you can actually see the articles in the manner that are intended to be seen. Facebook ruins formatting and tends to make all of my pictures look tiny. The third are the ever useful sharing and bookmarking tools at the bottom of each post. You can share my posts with your friends on Reddit, Digg, and many other great bookmarking sites. You can also get printer friendly versions or even a PDF copy. You can even click a like button straight from my site which will send more people here instead of just to the copies of the articles on facebook. This may sound like shameless self promoting. Well that is because it is! However if you only want to read my stuff on facebook. I totally understand.

Farewell Livejournal…

I have made a decision, and I am going to stick with it. I am officially leaving Livejournal forever.

It has been 7 years since my first post on this site, and boy how things have changed. I was in High School then and this whole internet thing was still pretty neat. There are so many memories here that I will cherish forever. Livejournal has been a source of solace for me in the past and I am sure it continues to be such for many of you still here.

However I have moved on. I have grown up. I still appreciate this site for what it is and what it has given me but it is time to move on.

I just don’t have the time or attention span to maintain an online presence in as many places as I do anymore.

With that said, I will keep this account open, all of the posts will still be here and if anyone chooses to comment them I will still get an email notification and reply.

If you wish to continue to follow my adventures in this crazy life of mine you can find me on facebook or just stop by my home on the web.

I will be going through these old posts and putting some of the highlights in my green-glasses.com site. So keep an out for those. And thanks for all the memories, I love you guys who have followed me and been my friend here. I hope you all are doing great 🙂

Livejournal

I sometimes wonder why I even post to this ancient site anymore. I realize more and more that every time I do I seem to get far more attention to my posts on facebook than I do on here.

I could just remove the middle man and post straight to facebook, but then I feel like I would be throwing away the countless years I have spent here. Then again I did throw away the countless years I spent at GreatestJournal considering my journal there was deleted.

Dying sites delete things when they die. How long will it be until livejournal dies? Should I be worried about my journal leaving this world forever? I suppose I could back it up with one of those handy archival applications.

It is New Years Eve today, the end of another decade is upon us tonight, to me New Years always just feels like another day though. I have never found myself getting too caught up in the idea of it. According to popular sources we only have but two years left to live life on this planet. Once again the end of all civilization is close at hand!

Net-less

You have no idea how frustrating it is to work at a store like Skory Autosound and not have the internet working. Not because I cannot browse facebook or chat with my friends when it is slow (though that kind of sucks too.)

Everything in our store is reliant on a stable always on connection to the internet. When we make a cash sale we log into a site to pull the customer account and enter the sale to our database. When we do a repair on a phone we have to log into the Eticket site to pull up the customers account and log our repair. When someone comes in to get speakers we go online to pull up the make of their car to see what size speakers it has and what parts we need to put new ones in. I dont even need to mention the fact that the internet is required to activate a phone.

Basically, if our internet goes down we can no longer operate. Our internet has been down for two days now. We are kind of making do. We have an air-card plugged into one computer, we have been tethring our phones to others. It is not an exact science to do the internet that way though.

Most of our cash sites and sprint sites operate in a very secure mode. Checking our IP address to make sure we are not getting on their system from an unauthorized computer. Our air-card is not authorized.

To say the least, I am frustrated.
