Going Crazy

Everywhere you go they are sold out of it. I'm talking about the iPod. Who would think that in October 2001 when the iPod was introduced that it would be so popular. And in April 2003 Apple launched its own music store that it would change the way people buy music forever. They have already sold 25 million songs off iTunes. That is incredible. And Apple made a very good move when they introduced iTunes for Windows. And with recent rumors it looks like Apple is going to come out with a Mini iPod in January at the Expo. Probably a 2 GB or 4 GB model. I wish they would move the 20 GB down to the $299 price tag and include the accessories with it. That is why I don't have my iPod that I was promised for Christmas yet. I told my mother that I wanted to wait and see what Apple does after the Expo. I hope that this is the right decision. I can't tell you how badly I am wanting my iPod. I have bought several songs off iTunes. I love that software. Well, I guess time will tell.

I got my 128 MB compact flash card today in the mail. I put it in my digital camera and it shows that I can take 1,355 pictures. That is alot of pictures. The car is now fixed. There was a hole in the vacuum tube. Went to Tyler today to get my mother a Christmas present. Then we went to Red Lobster. I had shrimp with a steak. It was so good. Our CompUSA is history. The store was closed and the sign was gone. I guess I will have to get my iPod at Apple's online store or Best Buy. I don't think I can make it up to our Apple store in Plano.

I just got back from seeing The Return of the King. That movie was 3 hours and 20 minutes long. I have not read the books so I can't compare them with the movies. But, this movie was the best one out of the trilogy. I think this was the best movie of my lifetime. It is the first movie that I have gone to where when it was over people clapped and yelled. But just when you think it is going to say "The End" it kept going on. I like the way Peter Jackson finished the trilogy. Go and see this movie


I just ordered a new Lexar 128 MB compact flash card off ebay. Finally enough room for pictures and mp3s.

Bad month

My car has something wrong with it. So we are going to have to get that fixed. But we won't be going home to spend Christmas with family. This really makes me mad and sort of depressed. Nothing I can do about it.

Bad day sort of

The power went out and my mother stumbled over the dog gate. She is ok. Just a little bruised. Also while at the post office my car died. It would not start. I had to buy a new battery. But, I only had to pay $2.00. The battery was a free replacement. I guess the old one was under warranty. So that was good. My youth group went to the nursing home and to the fire station to sing Christmas songs. While we were in the parking lot my friend knocked my HP Jornada 568 out of my hands. It now has a dent and the stylus is broke. I called HP and they said that it would cost me $199 to get it fixed. I could buy a new one for that price. So, I am ticked off about that.

New Forum

I installed a new forum. It is the phpBB 2.0.6 bulletin board package. It was so easy to setup. My old one took me for ever to install and setup. It was a pain. The service that I had it on put ads all over it and I did not like that. And I will be adding more topics later. I don't expect anyone to register. But it is there to use.
