First Wi-Fi Hotspot 

Hello! I'm writing this entry on my dad's laptop in a parking lot inside our van. I happened to find a WiFi hotspot in Marion, Ohio at Meijer. I believe the connection is coming from a hotel about 100 yards away.

It's pretty exciting!

Gotta go. CYA.

Color Changes 

The weather certainly has changed from summer! The trees are eliciting shades of orange, yellow, pink, and red. With that turnabout comes the cold weather. It's been much cooler lately, and frost is making its entrance.

I've been playing around with my blog setup for the past couple days. Notice the different colors and style! I like the blue theme. I hope to put a fresh face on my website's homepage soon. It needs a new layout.

Another major goal met was getting my room clean! :tongue: Seeing all that mess really started to bother me, so I finally got it taken care of.

Right now, I'm working on upgrading our web server. Yes, the one you're viewing this page from. I have a 1.2 gHz AMD computer that's getting XP on it right now. If it shows itself more stable than the current server (Win98SE), then it gets the job!

Sometimes, it's quite ironic that people think a pastor's life is a cakewalk. They think he spend a few hours a day in his office, gets his sermons off the internet, and plays games a lot. That couldn't be farther from the truth!
I'm finding out how busy the little things can keep you. My dad (http://calvarybucyrus.org/pastor) has been giving me more responsibilities as youth pastor. I'm working more with children now. Though it gets busy, it's fun.

My todo list getting quite long! I guess that's from spending too much time on the little binary box!

Computer... hate... 

Wow, it's nearly been three weeks since I posted last! Where does all the time go?

For three weeks, we had a French boy at our house. His hometown is Niece (not sure on the spelling). He was like a foreign-exchange student, but on summer break. It was very interesting hearing his French accent pronouncing English words, especially when reading the Bible. Anyways, we had a fun time with him and he enjoyed his stay. Anna and Philip got to do things with him. I couldn't do too much because I had to work. Bummer!

I've had much computer frustrations recently. Arrrgggghhh! At times, I just want my computer to become a boat anchor. I have a 120GB hard drive with my entire digital life on it. It stopped working. After much headache, I set the jumper on it to slave (it previously had no jumper) and it revived. Lesson to you kiddies: always back up information you don't want to lose! I think this hard drive is on the fritz, so I bought a 250GB hard drive with an external USB casing for it for $70 after rebates.

Today, I bought a Creative Zen Nano Plus 1GB MP3 player. It's really cool! With no moving parts, it plays music for 18 hours on 1 AAA battery. It plays music, records voice, FM radio (and can record it), and can record from line-in (like from a CD player). It only cost me about $70 at Wal-Mart - yes, I supported Communism and some Chinese sweatshop today. :tongue:

Tomorrow, I'm leaving at 8:00am with my dad to take my sister to the Akron-Canton airport. She's leaving for her second year at Pensacola Christian College (Pensacola, Florida). It has been nice to have her here for the summer. Later in the afternoon, our church youth group is going to the Columbus Clippers baseball game. They are the AAA baseball team of the New York Yankees. My family is going there to root for the opponents, the Toledo Mudhens. They are the farm team for the 1st place Detroit Tigers! It should be a good game.

This week at work has been the shortest yet at only 40:35. The paycheck might not look to good, but it's way better than my checks from McDonald's.
:happy:
