partly cloudysunnyWoke up @ 7, then I went back to sleep. Woke up a short time at 8 then finally got up at about 8:50 mostly just messed not he computer.

Sunny then partly cloudy the rest of the’d any.

I took some photos oft he squirrel skull that I bleached with peroxide overnight. Then watched some music videos and messed around in the yard trimming back the vins on th deck and the side of the house.

Went out to Hooters for a beer and some buffalo shrimp, got to see Beth and also Katrina who seemed to be working as a manager. She looked very respectable in her glasses. Bruceaxnd a large Ganga werreaxttxhe bar when I arrived, ted included. Then most except Bruce left. Met a nice couple from Wisconsin, big Green Bay fans watching the game. He wifi there is still f’ed up so I didn’t stay long.

Stopped in at the Old Towne Tavern and sat at the bar outside, sweet, very nice the clouds had come in and it was cool with a slight breeze. Had a couple Hopsicutioners end then a wild pie with shrimp, damn good. I forgot how good it was. Oh, the bartender at the patio was named Alicia, beautiful brown haired, eyed girl. They also had beer long back in June back on the patio, college. I think I did see a gal from tilted kilt, blonde tall a bit on the redneck side, possibly playing for the other team.

Got a few things from Home Depot to update the shower to add a handheld shower in addition to the overhead rain type shower head I have already. The main reason for this was to be able to make it easier to clean up the shower. Only problem is I wanted the main one to be on all the time and then the handheld one to be turned on as well to rinse off the sides. I had first installed it so the main unit was turning off and on and the handheld always on. I didn’t get it reconfigured correctly since I ran out of the Teflon tape using it to set everything up the first time.

Watched the season premier of the Walking Dead.

From Beer Street Journal–>

Tonight’s Season Four premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead featured a fight scene full of craft beer. SweetWater Brewing, Terrapin Beer Co and Jailhouse Brewing had cameos. You also see Decatur’s Ale Yeah! banner in a scene. (Slightly obscured by the Jailhouse sign.)

This hit show is filmed in and around Atlanta, Georgia. The Walking Dead’s set designers often reach out to local brewers asking for beer, signage and boxes to be used as props for filming.

The cat had gotten a hold of my squirrel skull and was obviously began batting it around, several pieces from the nose were on the floor and one tooth, I can’t find the other tooth and I’m a bit pissed at him. I have no idea where the damn thing is. I want to strangle Crash now, I really don’t want animals for exactly this reason, I want to be able to leave things and not have to worry about them getting broken or ruined.

Out on the trail again today, early. Spotted a box turtle and several different types of mushrooms. Saw a few chipmunks, three to be exact. And more mosquitoes and spiders, no snakes this time, it was earlier. Tried to get a photo of a jumping spider on a golfball.

Apple-logoApple came out with the iOS 7 update today, got the iPad started first and after about 1.5 hours finally had the update downloaded on the MacBook through the SAP_Internet (the slow one for our “personal” use). I then updated the iPhone and didn’t get finished with that until about 4pm. No trouble at all, everything updated and rebooted just fine. My first thoughts are that I really don’t like many of the “visual” changes, it looks flatter and a lot brighter. Some of the differences between the iPhone and iPad show they clearly are more interested in the iPhone market, I can see why but don’t understand why the code isn’t more interchangeable.

I worked on merging the aspx files for our CPR website, should be finished by tomorrow.

Went out to the Johns Creek Mac for BOTM, used my mall of ga list, over 1221 now. Saw the fellas there, John (divorced, glasses) and Brian the fitbit dude. Found out today the Brian has lost almost 100lbs in the last year. He should be dropping down blow 200 this weekend he says. Kate, Chantel and Ray where working tonight and I asked about Meg and Tommy only to find out they work on Saturday and Sunday last week after they got back from vacation.

It was getting dark by the time I headed out of there, only 7:30pm, fall is coming. Getting home I just watched the last 5 episodes of Cougar Town, these are the oldest shows, 2009 still very funny. Didn’t get to taking photos of the beers I got tonight, two Mikkellers a Stout and a Porter.

Announcing jQuery Mobile 1.3.1 | jQuery Mobile.

jQuery Mobile: Touch-Optimized Web Framework for Smartphones & Tablets

A unified, HTML5-based user interface system for all popular mobile device platforms, built on the rock-solid jQuery and jQuery UI foundation. Its lightweight code is built with progressive enhancement, and has a flexible, easily themeable design.

I started to convert my Beers, WebApp to JQuery instead of the iUI that I began about 2 years ago. The iUI project just doesn’t have enough going for it. I began today a bit during lunch and had the Media webapp that didn’t work well before modified by the end of lunch. Started on the Beer WebApp after work, finished the main 4 lists, All, Cellared, Deep Cellar, and Last 100 beers.

Latest stable version – 1.3.1

@ $399 it’s a bit pricey but it is 10lbs and very realistic.
mass_effect_predator_pistol_redLimited Edition Full Scale Replica

A reliable, accurate sidearm. Manufactured by Elanus Risk Control, the Predator is valued as a powerful, deadly, and relatively inexpensive weapon. While it is not generally deployed in the military, it’s still very popular in the Terminus Systems.

Shep loves a good sidearm, especially when she’s taking out a bunch of geth husks or Cerberus troops. In fact, we’d say she appreciates a good weapon almost as much as Garrus, although she calibrates hers a lot less often. The Predator is a lightweight, rapid fire pistol that rounds out your party when Liara’s firing off biotics and Garrus is sniping. There’s Shep with her trusty M-3 Pred.

ThinkGeek is proud to announce our exclusive version of the officially licensed Mass Effect 3: M-3 Predator Full Scale Replica Custom Edition. Masterfully sculpted and painted by the artisans at TriForce, this is the most authentic representation of this weapon available on the market. The M-3 Predator Full Scale Replica Custom Edition is hand-finished and hand-painted to precision quality. Intricately crafted and cast in polystone, it measures 12″ in length, weighs in at 10 pounds, and features working LED effects.

NASA / JPL / MSSS / Ed Truthan Curiosity MAHLI self-portrait, sol 177 A total of 64 frames shot by the MAHLI on the end of Curiosity's robotic arm were required for this large mosaic. On sol 177 (February 3, 2013), the rover was sitting at the "John Klein" site, preparing to drill for the first time. Zoom in at lower left and you can see two gray marks on the ground where Curiosity tested out the drill in percussion mode on sols 174 and 176.

windycloudyUp this morning without any hitting of the snooze button, just laid there for a bit listening to a book and got up to take a shower. No rain but overcast all day. Noticed some buds on the trees by my window @ work. Spring may be getting here soon. All day the clouds were racing toward the North, at a good clip I might add. Rained right after work, then stopped.

mila_kunis_esquire_001Looked up info on the next release of PhotoSmith for the iPad, here they added more info on the 2.3 version and it looks like maybe next month (April) it should be coming out.

Here’s a photo of the very sexy Milla Kunis from Esquire magazine, ouch.

Work, frustrating again, not really bad but… Big guy has a meeting scheduled for 4pm EST, yeah like NO. Dude if you want to talk to Atlanta just stop in and speak, instead you schedule two events for the WHOLE world and then that’s it? I hope they record the thing and put it up on the web otherwise I won’t be seeing any of it.

I stopped in at the Duluth T-Mac and had a Blue Point Sour Cherry Imperial Stout, the manager from way back was there, the bald one who’s wife I met one time out when they both were drinking, damn I forgot his name.

Today the new version of Red Dawn came out on DVD/BlueRay, Brian and I went over to the Movie Stop and picked our copies up. Watched the Tivoed episodes of Cougar Town before and then after we went down to Brian’s and watched Red Dawn since Nicki was watching TV upstairs. I liked this version, a bit different and very much up to date as too politics and things like that. It was in a bigger city and not such a rural area as the other one was.

Ordered a couple of adapters for the mini/micro USB connector, right angle to allow a regular USB cable to fit better on the D700.

I can’t wait for the new version, it’s a great program.

They should be ready in about 1-2 months I’d say. They keep saying weeks but I’m a bit reluctant to hope for that.

A lot of progress has been made on the new sandboxing functionality, Import and Delete dialogs, and stability and speed.
