Started working on my hot tub…from the 70’s.

This will take some work…looks like they never winterized it correctly. Water was shooting everywhere after filling half way.

131 FAIL Cam

Filed under: General — bigred @ 1:52 pm

I must shamelessly plug a new web camera. This camera overlooks the US131 S-Curve. This road is a small stretch of raised cement curves. You go from 70miles per hour down to 55 and sometimes slower. The problem is it’s a blind curve.

Anyways. This website can now show you all the fun accidents that end up happening.

So head over to http://131failcam.com today to check out excitement.


XM Radio no more for me

Filed under: Auto,music,Technology — bigred @ 8:07 am

I decided after months and months of having XM radio that it was time for it to go.  Originally I put it on the car for the holidays over 2 years ago now.  I said to myself, “I’m traveling all over the state, this would be a good thing to have through the New Year”.  I figured I’d cancel it come February…..2.25 years later…..

Yesterday I yanked it from the roots.  Now, the crazy thing is if you read on the internet and hear others talk, it’s worst than pulling teeth to cancel.  At the very least they have been offering everyone three months free to “get by”, so you really never can get them to cancel your service.

Well this is how it went down for me.

I called and spoke to someone who didn’t speak English.  Told her I wanted to cancel because I didn’t use it anymore.  She brought up my account info and said she had to transfer me….
I figured …”oh great, here we go”.

Then I get transferred to a guy that sounded like he was in a US call center.  He asked me the same questions as the first lady and again i told him.….”wanted to cancel…bla bla bla…”   He tells me give me one minute….then told me he just sent the cancelation signal or some flux capacitor command.  And then said good bye. 

TOTAL TIME ON PHONE: 3 minutes 42seconds.


Pretty sure that may be a new record for ANYONE canceling XM RADIO.   Did the sky fall yesterday… did hell freeze….  what just happened.  Today It was confirmed.  I jumped in my car and sure enough no XM playing.


comments comments comments…

oh where oh where have the comments gone??  Looks like i had something configured wrong.  When you leave them now, they should be showing up if they are approved…but of course I’m not getting emails when the comments get caught :(

anyways…  I have updates from this pass weekend that I’ll share in a bit :)


never blog anymore

Filed under: General — bigred @ 1:42 pm

With all the facebooks/twitters/ ect. I just don’t blog anymore. As you can see this site is not updated. Facebook will end up getting this post that I’m writing right now.

Point being. Since everyone syndicates data. Does anyone go this blog to read data. They use facebook, or google reader, or whatnot.
I still want to be creative and update this look and feel, but heck, I have a hard time just writing new posts.

I’ll try to throw a few more updates up more often in the future.


How to Burn $29.99 Education Edition of Win7 to ISO

Filed under: microsoft,Self Help,Windows 7 — bigred @ 11:08 am

Did you happen to download the windows 7 upgrade from digitalriver.com.  This would be the $29.99 edition.

If you did get it, it downloads, then expands a TON of files.  If you want burn this to a DVD then you are going to need to do the following:

First download  oscdimg.zip.


THEN run this crazy command. 

This command will make an ISO for you.  Of course, replace the path with the correct path to the etfsboot.com and the directory where the files sit.

Oscdimg.exe –u2 –b”C:\Users\PUTUSERNAMEHERE\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com” –h “C:\Users\PUTUSERNAMEHERE\Desktop\expandedSetup” C:\WIN7.ISO

You know what really grinds my gears? Kate Gosselin’s claim she is broke…

Filed under: Complaint,tv — bigred @ 6:45 am

You know what really grinds my gears?  Kate Gosselin is claiming that she is broke because ONE account has been drained by John.  Kate is FREAKING out….she’s putting on the water works and she is being a HORRIBLE actor.

TLC, NBC…please please stop reporting on this divorce.  Quit the show.  Quit paying Kate money to extort her children.  If you want the children to grow up like normal kids, sell your multi million dollar house and turn off the cameras.

In divorce the “man is always wrong”.  I’m not sure why this happens, but for sure all we are seeing is one side of the story, because every time I hear Kate say “I can’t pay my bills”, I want to punch her in the nose.
