    Sing, Sing a Song

    Spent a little time today loading some MP3s on my Blackberry and then listening to music on it (over the speaker). It sounded better than my radio. =} Oh, I just love my little ‘berry.

    Updated Mommy

    I just ordered my Blackberry Curve (t-mobile) and I can’t wait for it to arrive! I’ve been using the same phone since 2001 and, although I still love it, it’s woefully out-of-date. Still, I’d have happily kept it for another year or so except the battery (which was always phenomenal) is starting to go and the buttons aren’t as responsive as they should be. With my Blackberry, I’ll be able to check my email, browse the web and maybe even do some blogging. Also, I got an amazing deal through Amazon. They’re basically paying me $99 to get the phone after discounts and rebates. Can’t beat that! In fact, I’m…

    Insanely Big TV

    In case I haven’t mentioned it, Big Guy and I are techies. We met online. Our house has about 4 laptops and 4 desktops. We have a Playstation2, X-Box and Gameboy Advance. We’ve got 3 TiVos and 4 TVs. I take that back, because as of today we have 4 itty bitty TVs and one gi-normous monstrosity. I have this guilty feeling that we’re the poster children for American consumerism and materialism. Sigh. Anyway, Big Guy “broke down” and bought a 56″ DLP TV. It’s more than twice the size of our previous largest TV. It’s HD, of course, which means we then needed to get an appropriate DVD player.…

    Do you Squidoo?

    I have totally fallen in love with Squidoo! It’s very difficult to explain, but you create these webpages called “lenses” that are about a specific topic of interest. You can use different modules like a text box, links, photos, video, music, RSS feeds, etc. to tell about your topic. You can also include Amazon items, and other things for sale. Squidoo shares any profits made from affiliate links, google ads, and so on, with the lens makers – that’s us! Squidoo is a great way to advertise your business, market your blog, or share more about your favorite cause. If you sign up, do so through a referral link because…

    I managed to let my personal domain expire over the weekend.  It’s a long, boring story how it happened, but obviously I didn’t know it was coming.  All of a sudden I started having trouble downloading my email, and… well, no domain.  My previous webhost claims to have support 24/7, but since I sent them a message on Saturday evening and did not receive a reply until late afternoon Sunday, I’m skeptical about this.  Perhaps they don’t realize that simply being able to send them an email 24/7 does not count as support.  My current webhost, on the other hand, does indeed have LIVE support all the time.  I can…

    Technologically impaired

    I love learning new things. I love seeing new places. Starting a new business, or several as the case may be, is a phenomenal challenge with a high learning curve. Right now, I’m ramping up my technical skills and that’s kicking my butt. It’s my own fault for letting my skills lapse in the first place. Here’s the thing… I’m a techie at heart. I began using a computer in 1981 or so and haven’t stopped ever since! [I even met my hubby online!] I was online in 1989 in the earliest days of the internet (before the “web” existed – can you imagine an internet without web pages and…
