Weekend Recap.

Woke up and hit up Apple Woodlands with Shey and Dustin. Got a free shirt, but in XL! Vikram you’d thoroughly enjoy it.

Later in the day, we went to McDonald’s for food and races in the playpen, LaserQuest, Kroger, and then Dustin’s.

Game 1: second place.

Game 2: first place! go team tomcat!

Take a pose.

‘Round and ’round they go.

I hit 123456 miles on my car!!! WHOOOO!

P.S. 3 EK’s! (And Shey has joined the family. WHOOT!)

I just got an offer today to take up a part time job with PepsiCo in the Fall! If this works out right, I’ll get setup to work remotely since I don’t go to school Tuesdays and Thursdays.

On top of that, *bucks hooked me up with a free Iced Double Tall White Mocha!

P.S. Windows Vista (aka Longhorn) will release a Beta on August 3, 2005.

asp:repeater is really awesome, especially when you nest them to display hierarchical data. Be careful when doing this!

I spent freaking 1.5 days discovering that the order DataTables are put into the DataSet makes a difference. What ever the parent table is, be sure to add it first in the DataSet, then add the child table after.

P.S. Forget minimize, maximize, and resize…fold the freaking window!!!

My computer burped.

I swear. It loves the RAM.

Remove the bottom screws (2) with a small phillips-head screwdriver.

Position the computer like you would normally use it.

Lift the keyboard gently by picking up the last row of keys.

Flip keyboard over without removing the cable.

Install the RAM, like any other RAM.

creepy, but awesome flash video

RAM is delicious.

I cant decide. I’m torn. If money wasnt an issue, I’d get the Sony. But I can do one of two things. The OCZ shown below for $44.95 OR the Sony for $69.98 (before taxes). Which one looks better? Actually, the real question is if the Sony is worth $25.03 more than the OCZ, should I spend that much more for the Sony? I need more opinions.

[$69.98] 512MB Sony VAIO Notebook 200pin PC2100 DDR SODIMM
[$44.95] OCZ 512MB DDR PC2100 SO-Dimm

Install RAM 01

No point in comparing the price. OCZ is the clear winner.

Think I’m crazy? Sohel is: g35 > 350z, but for me, RAM is RAM. I’ll pick up the OCZ at fry’s tomorrow after work.

Check out this AWESOME keyboard!!!

Where am I?
