Nana and I have moved back to the Chicago Area. Oak Forest to be exact. We’ve moved back to Real Pizza, gyro and Roast Beef (Sangwitch) I wen’t about 6 weeks without a single Taco < after being in the Taco Capital of the states, San Antonio. Jazziril and Sydney (poobear and peanut) are good and growing their Full Fur, they look Huge!. Nana's Mom moved with us of course, She is liking the cooler weather and is able to breath better. More on the way

Current Music Happenings

I’m Currently back with Maiden Killers, ( Iron Maiden Tribute to the Deanno Years )

Unit 57 ( Rock Covers )
Zero the Hero ( Original Metal )

I have finally acquired my Warwick 2008 Thumb Bolt on Wide Neck. (Brand New) Distributor back stockIMG 0411
This Bass is amazing. I wanted to get a neck through version, but after playing this bolt on, and hearing the sustain it had, and the price, I had to pull the trigger on it.

Practice Practice.. I’m learning the “thumb as a pick” technique, this is causing new blister and callus locations on the thumb. Here is an Example.

Life Update

Mom had come down for the holidays and to visit, as well as soak up the good weather of winter in south Texas. We Just took her to the airport and she’s not looking forward to the cold weather of the northwest Indiana Chicago Area.

Work is good. Rackspace is a really good place to work.. they don’t just say that. Forbes says it, and so do I. I have never worked for a place where I have no interest in keeping my options open.. or keeping my eye on the Job boards. I’ve actually drank the Kool-aid and am loving my Job.

We took Jazz to an Internal medicine Vet to look at his seizure records and dosage etc, due to his seizures becoming more frequent. We’re upping the dosage of Zonsimide and the potassium bromide. Hopefully This will have a good affect.

We have moved to a new (to us) house in San Antonio. It’s smaller, only 2 bedrooms and we’re going to have to get rid of even More stuff but With Just nana, I and the Critters we don’t really need more room.

More Later..

ZNC vs IRSSI Proxy

I have been using IRSSI and it’s proxy feature to keep a running connection to freenode. While I play road warrior with the laptop. With a bit of down time over the holidays I came across ZNC. While not a new project it is new to me. I found that it’s features set and project focus is what I was trying to have IRSSI do for me. This IRC bouncer they call it is quite mature now and has many module for expansion.. check it out at http://wiki.znc.in/ZNC
