Upon recent inspection of my blog I'm not all too happy with how the information is presented. Things seem to be sorta/kinda slapped together in a jumble.
What I'm going to do (soon) is re-org this thing in a way where stuff is much easier to get to. Easy is good.
Short post, but yeah it's time for another redesign. 🙂

Earlier this eve I co-hosted an online tech show with the boss. It was good and actually brought in more traffic that last week which was really nice.
I can tell the show is already starting to get popular because the chat room attracted a few trolls. They spewed their usual standard fare. I kicked; I banned; I moderated. That's what chat room "ops" do. Fortunately it stopped after I turned moderation on (if you don't know what that is, don't ask, it's an IRC thing).
. . .
I haven't been blogging as much as I normally do because I've actually been (gasp) busy. But even so, here's the poop on what's going on with yours truly:
The tax thing with Killingly - to the best of my knowledge - is 100% resolved. I should be receiving a receipt from that office in the mail before the week is out.
April marks my 2-year anniversary of living in Florida. Doesn't sound like a long period of time to most, but when you consider this is the longest time I've spent away from the stomping grounds, it truly is a long time.
At the 2-year anniversary mark I will be upgrading to a 1-bedroom apartment.. FINALLY. I've been living in what's known as a "studio" all this time, and while some consider it way too small, it's mine and I love it. And I'll love it even more when I have a bedroom and a small utility room with washer/dryer hookups, thank you very much. 🙂
The Buick restoration has been a slow-going process, but in all honesty I am in no rush. The car is acquired; I got it. However it's very low on my to-do list; this is why updates have been few and far between.
I have a big-ass post I've been working on for a while listing all the old haunts at the stomping grounds. It includes a mall, hang-outs and other places. The post is big. Really big. I haven't posted it yet because there are parts of it that are a bit angry-sounding, so I'm debating whether to let that loose on my blog. Why? Because I'm 100% sure word will get around and it may ruffle a few feathers up north. True, I don't have to care, but also true you have to think before you speak when blogging; that's just the way it is.
More on that later.
Yes I know I haven't been coming up with good blog post titles lately. Whatever. 🙂
Doing the live stream thing for work has been interesting to say the least. In the short time I've been doing it I've learned that chatters get a bit shocked when dealing with a brash personality (as I have). I guess most online hosts choose to go with the "nice guy" route but there are times when I just don't. In particular if some kid enters the chat room and does that me-me-me gimme-gimme attention thing, I will usually give it to him. The funny thing is the kid doesn't know what to do at that point, gets scared, and leaves.
Ah well, what ya gonna do.
I've also been reading this blog from the stomping grounds (which I've mentioned here before). I don't know the author but it's plainly obvious absolutely nothing has changed in 2 years up that way - and I don't say that with praise. The comments from the locals basically state everything you'd want (and not want) to know.
There's part of me that has a good chuckle when reading that blog but another part that feels a bit ashamed because I come from there. Granted, I moved away and did good for myself, but still.. it's where I grew up. Maybe I have some subconscious desire that one day the place will get cleaned up and become a better place to live. But I honestly can't see that ever happening, or at least not happening for a very long time.
Yes, I think this pedal sucks...
A quick guide on how to set the time, date and a few other tips and tricks.
This is not that big of a deal once you know how to do it.
Norlin era Gibsons are some of the worst guitars Gibson ever made. Find out why.
Guitar string recommendation for Squier and Fender Stratocaster guitars
24.75" scale electric guitars and other models down to the 24.0" scale.
When it comes to ready-to-mod guitars, it doesn't get much better than this.
Oh, no... not another Norlin era Gibson.
It's real-deal Fender vintage, it's available, and there's one other rather nice advantage to owning one of these.
When you want a Bigsby vibrato on a genuinely well-built guitar for not a lot of money, you go Gretsch.
There is a whole lot of wow to this Les Paul.
Is this a classic, or is it tacky? Let's talk about that.
