Exciting stuff.

Posted in Uncategorized on June 18, 2009 by dreamphase

I talked to my cousin the other day. He is coming out to Washington, and then here to hang out. 😀 He said he will be in Washington from the 29th to the 4th. then after that he could come to visit me. I don’t have anything planned for the weekend of the 4th, so I was thinking about driving up there. He will be staying with his brother, and hanging out with him. I don’t know where they are planning to see the fireworks, but I think it would be awesome to go with them.
Then on the 11th, I am going to the Live Faith Fest in Kent Washington, to see Switchfoot, Tayla, and a couple others. I don’t know exactly what the timing will be like; with my cousin wanting to vist and such. maybe he will want to go along.
Exciting stuff. God is good. 😀

is upgrading worth it yet?

I have been using wimax for a bit now, and I must say that I like it. I have wanted to stick a wimax card into my x60t, but I was told it wouldn’t work. I believe it would, I would just need to solder a pic-e mini socket onto the motherboard. I dug deeper and I found that it would work, but at this point I don’t really want to do that. I started looking at getting an x61t. thie would allow me to get a max of 8gb of ram. also if I got the model that has the WWAN stuff I wouldn’t need ot solder anything. The XGA model is looking good to me; XGA is too small for me after using mine with SXGA+, but I have a plan. the bios on the x61t supports the SXGA+ screen, so I’d just swap them. At this time this is the only upgrade idea that would actually be an idea for me. I should be able to pick one up for $700-800, and my x60t should sell for about $500 (with the lovwer res screen)

hmm Staturday, that day that I wait for becaues I don’t have to work, but once it comes I sometimes don’t know what to do with the free time. My goal is to not let that happen while I am here in OR. see it doesn’t really happen when I am back home, but when I am back home there is always stuff to do. here.. not so much. This Saturday I decided to drive down to the Sealion caves. it was kinda cool, but I was a little disapointed because most of the cave was closes off so you couldn’t walk around like when I went to Carlsbad Caverns. still it was a nice drive, and I also got to see a lighthouse. here are a couple pictures:

oh hello agian. :)

hi, I uh… forgot about this.. yes. -1 for me haha. I actually had stuff I could write about too.

The past couple weeks have been a bit busy for me. I am now writing this from Oregon. As a follow up to the last post; I ended up just getting minutes for my Net10 phone.  As much as I would like to get the Jasjar to have service it just costs too much. (even with my new job)

The new job… yep, I am working for Intel now. I don’t really know how much I can say about the stuff I am working on, so I am not going to say anymore than this: I got to play around with some cool stuff that isn’t out yet.  (I know that isn’t saying much..) The people there are nice.

Part of the reason I haven’t been writing much on here is because I didn’t have fast internet. The apartment complex thing where I am renting has verizon internet coupled with the apartments. they claim it is ‘high-speed’ but it isn’t even close.  Actually I was getting about half the speed dial-up is capable of handling. if you have the option to go with verizonavenue; Just Say No.

Also, I am now using WiMax as my internet connection. The speedtest image is my result. The Wimax seems to work extremely nice.That is why I am able to post again. sure I could have before on the slow connection, but it would have been more work.(that and I forgot about this) I made it to the coast also on the 23rd. :

That was fun. I went with one of the other Interns from NMU as he didn’t have a car.

The next weekend(the 30th) I drove up to Washington to see Tayla in concert. That was amazing. She was better in concert than on CD. It is very rare that I think that. (Skillet comes to mind) The concert was really good, and I got to talk to her for about a half hour after the concert. That was awsome; she is extremely nice.

You should check out her site and buy her cd 🙂

Here is a picture I took while driving to the concert in Ellensburg. Oh and I went ot sonic for the first time. They were handing out free rootbeer floats. I saw the flier online, but I didn’t think anything of it at first because where I am from in michigan we don’t have any.  I checked and found one about 2 miles away so I went. it was really busy, but well worth it.

I can’t think of anything else really important or worth mentioning that happened since the last entry.
