Okay, okay, okay, so I am not any type of artist at this stage in my life. I dream about being able to draw so that I can do some neat things with the computer. Unfortunately the amount of time and skill it takes to become a decent artist are things that I lack at this time. Though I do try!

If anyone had checked the weekend of November 8th they may have noticed that the website was up and down a bit. Well for good reason. My friend Danny Wegman and I finished running network cable, CAT 6 to be specific, in the house. Yes I have installed networking throughout my house.

Once we had drilled a bunch of holes, chanted a few choice words, and with Dan's expertise we managed to finish up the wiring. I am so excited that I can now get some speed behind a few of my machines. Some of you may be asking "Why didn't you just go wireless Tadge?" Well for good reasons!

So here I am the first time in a few years a simple participant at the NYSCATE Conference. I have been really enjoying the experience, but I have also started to reflect on what I have been doing the last few year. I am starting to need a chance to work on my own self directed learning. I have been thinking about this for at least a year or so, and trying to define in my head what it is I want to do.

Wow we have been back to school now for over a month and it doesn't seem like I have stopped working. Every weekend has been filled with a variety of things. Whether it is working on the house, visiting friends and family, or playing the local ARG called Picture The Impossible here in Rochester. This has made the last month fly by!

Well I couldn't sleep the other night for some reason so I ended up staying up. I ended up working on installing Mythbuntu with mixed results. I have TV sometimes and not others. Either way I have some more work to do on that. However I think I have a plan. Since the machine that I currently installed it on has a 1.8 MHZ processor (I think) I am going to swap it out for a machine with a beefier processor and the same RAM. Anyways on with the update.

Well unfortunately I had a little B & E as the police call it. Yep my garage was broken into last week! Luckily for me I only had one item stolen, a used miter saw, while the church had their snow blower and lawn mower stolen.

See I woke up last week on Tuesday to some odd noises of a car pulling away, not much to think about since I do live about 10 feet from the road. So I walked downstairs getting ready for work, thinking that I would skip my routine of emptying the dehumidifier and grab coffee and go. So I did, and I would regret it.

Well it took me a little fidgeting around, but image galleries are back up and running. I am hoping that I can get some of the older images that I had up prior. I have been working on this the last day, along with getting a few other things ready.

Well one of the goals here now is to be able to have this as a space to write. Write about everything that I find interesting as well as be able to categorize it, though we aren't there yet.

That is right! You heard correctly I have purchased a home. Now I am hosting this out of my house, and am running in a bit of a different format. I have decided that life has changed quite a bit and that it is time to move along...

I have made the move to a new house, have a new OS under the hood of the site, and a new software that I am going to be using. All of this will take some time, as I plan on moving most of the content from my last site over. So if this coming year you see some changes or the site seems to be up and down, no worries... We will be back in action.

Wholly cow! It is about time that TODC moved to a more dynamic site. Well I finally made it. I will be working slowly to update the content as I go along here as well as install some additional things so it isn't so plain...

Be on the look out for video and photos to be showing up. As well as a few other things.

Till then!
