I just put one of mine up on eBay… I copped a 2GB one for cheap and don’t need 2 other 1GB’s. eBay got some new and welcomed AJAX features now, I was kindda surprised coz eBay really hadn’t changed much for years. They also finally integrated Skype to their listings, very nice. powered by [...]

Happy Holidays, Wii, shopping, and random updates

Haven’t blogged for a few days, I did manage to catch up with most of my feeds and shared a few items in GReader… We didn’t do much for Christmas, just ate at a different restaurant every meal (as usual), played Wii, and shopped, well, we did a lot of shopping… The Wii is a [...]

Thanks to Amazon now we’re getting a Nintendo Wii!!

So I told Sherry to put her name down to get a Wii, the probability was like 1 in 28, not bad, but not good… I didn’t get picked, but she did! But I’m still not sure if it will show up before Christmas. Obviously we have Amazon Prime and upgraded to 1-Day shipping for [...]

Photoshop CS3 is nice, and FAST!!

So finally downloaded Adobe Photoshop CS3 Beta, took a long time to install, but once it’s installed everything is nice and speedy. It runs A LOT FASTER than CS, my pervious version. (I never saw the need to upgrade to CS2). The new Camera Raw is much nicer, Bridge works much better than the photo [...]
